Camp was fun as playing xbox while alone at home! Everyone screamed and yelled like a Sasquatch!
We all jumped and ran around in circles like a bunch of crazy kangaroos. The class over came fear like the ghost hunters. When we went home everyone was sad but excited.

The holidays were great
Me and my friends just love to skate
From water fights to fleeing flights
Jumping up and down
We're headead straight to town

Have ever littered in the School before and what kind of rubbish did you litter?

Have you ever littered in the school and what have you littered? That's the question I asked to people in my class for my Statistical Investigation.

We have been seeing all kinds of rubbish in our school and we have been trying to count how much rubbish of each was.

I asked students in my class if they have every littered before. A lot of them said yes but some said no. 

After asking students in my class what they have littered they all said different answers. They are all shown on this chart.

Name Calling And Bullying

Since I came to this school I've been seeing people feel bad about themselves cause they were being bullied by bigger and stronger people. Some people end up crying. I was picked on too cause some people start throwing things at me.

Bullying someone won't achieve anything besides making a person feel bad and it'll get you in trouble. It may seem fun for you to do this to people weaker than you or dumber, but it actually gets you in trouble.

If you are getting bullied or name called by other people it's wise to tell a friend, a family member and even a teacher.

Some bullying actually gets too far and the bullies start making bad rumours that involve the friends they or how they look. They then spread the rumours around the school and end up making the person feel bad.

If you're a bully, you might as well quit now cause sooner or later someone's gonna tell on you.

Camp's gonna be fun. Basically everybody in the class is going to camp. I thought I'd make a post about trying to persuade anybody else who doesn't want to go to camp.

Get rid of your technology for a good four days and go for some sort of exotic hike, or go rock-climbing and do some physical activities.

Friends are also gonna come so you won't be alone. If you're scared of the rain you won't if you have a rain jacket prepared.

There's gonna be awesome camp fires and songs that are gonna be really entertaining for the nights!
If you don't go to camp you'll still have to go to school and it'll be really boring! There won't be much people who aren't going to camp which means four days with few people.

Tail Trail 3 Wolves fighting


The Ravengers were hungry for revenge. It wasn't long ago that Melverse was banned from his old pack. Now he was going to take his revenge and no one will stand in his way. He waited a long time for this, so has his new pack.

"There they are," said Melverse, "the traitors that sent me fending for myself."
"Do we attack them?" A Ravenger asked.
"Yes, but not now." said Melverse. They all sank into the deep grass and waited for the right moment to strike.

A few moments later, they were already attacking. Wolf versus wolf. The sky was red, blood slithered the grass. The Ravengers were winning. The other wolf pack leader was begging for mercy.
"Please," he said. "don't kill me. I beg you!" Melverse clawed the other pack leader's head off.
"We emerge victorious. Let's celebrate!" Melverse said. The Ravengers roared.

Tucker and Fred

Every now and then some guy would stumble in  a fight, or an argument. Some people are actually smart enough to turn their back and walk away. But Tucker isn't one of those guys. A lovely stroll in the park could just be his one trip to the hospital.

Tucker had bad temper. You can easily make him mad by saying, "bro" to him. And, well, this is how it kind of started. An argument could lead to an all out fist fight.

Tucker strolled in the park. He eventually got tired and decided to sit on a bench. Another person sat down next to him. "Hi," he said. "My name's Fred."
"And?" said Tucker.
"What's yours?" asked Fred.
"Tucker, now please, shut up." Tucker stood up and clenched his hand into a fist and out it against Fred's face.
"Whoa, bro." said Fred.
"What did you call me?!" shouted Tucker. Fred got out of the bench and Tucker punched his face. Fred got mad and brought Tucker's face to his knee. Since Fred had freckles on his face, Tucker decided to say; "Come at me, Freckle Face!"
"Your mom's a Freckle Face!" shouted Fred.
"My butt!" said Tucker.The Argument

Kio Rahi

It's a fun game about team work, determination and skill. A lot of people in my class like it and I'm one of them.

Tani Wha's the defenders and Kio Mai's the attackers. Kio Mai throws the ball at the post to get a score. Tani Wha uses the ball to touche the cones and score a try. I really enjoy the game and my team always makes me the defender every time we're Tani Wha.

You get the ball of people by ripping their ripper tags. It makes them pass the ball to someone else.

Tail Trail 2 Black Ops


"We want a re-match." said one of the Spetsnas.
"Want your arses to get kicked again?" teased a Black Ops.
"Things change, dummy." said a different Spetsnas.  The snow thickened and none of the teams could be seen. "Fine," said a Black Ops. Snow balls came from every direction and hit random people from each team. Spetsnas was winning but Black Ops won by just 5 points.

Wednesday, 22 August 2012


Playing Team Death Match In Black ops was fun until I saw snow invading Wellington out of my window. I ignored a person that noob tubed me. I Sprinted as fast as I could. It was cold, cold. I stared at the sky. The snow was floating and landing on the concrete. I reached my hand out and a snowflake landed on my hand. It dissolved. The snow danced around me. Fluttering and falling, snow came from all directions.

Tale Trail


Is winning the race all its cracked up to be? Or am I just doing this cause I'm bored? My Dad told me that there was someone in town that I could ask to help me train. First of, my name Sheelah Jennings, and of course by my name I'm a female. My parents said that maybe I should do the town sprint, but of course all I said was; "Town sprint my butt," that didn't change my parents' mind.
They 'persuaded' me to do it. I'm not telling how. I was to pretending to go to training by leaving the house and going to my friend Jenny's house. My decision was changed when Jenny told me if you came 1st you get a few hundred dollars.

I started going to training and started sprinting the crap out of myself. If you came 2nd, you get 4 bags of lollies. If you came 3rd, you get a random toy. If you didn't get in the top 3 you don't get anything. "I'm gonna win this!" I exclaimed.

"On your marks"

"On your marks, get set, go!" as I heard those words my heart raised and I sprinted across the grassy path and stomped my feet as hard as I could. "Don't stop now." I thought. I was coming 4th. Nearly passing the people in front of me. "COME ON!" I thought in my head. My stomach was feeling heavier and heavier by the second. I closed my eyes and hoped for the best.

I opened my eyes again and saw I was coming 1st. "Yes!" I exclaimed. I checked behind me and saw I was way ahead of the others. This is amazing, very amazing! "I can't stop now," I whispered to myself. The finish line wasn't far now, so close. Just then, I started slowing down. I was exhausted. Someone passed me. "No," I thought. Before I could get to the finish, he did. I passed the finish line and I was done. I came 2nd.

Winter Home

Winter Home My winter boots sank into the snow. The wind slapped my face as it went by. Going home from school felt like forever. As it I stepped on the branches they crackled, the sound sounded like the branches were begging for mercy. Finally making to the frosty bridge that lay ahead, the cold had nearly gotten the best of me. I landed my right foot onto the bridge, it slipped to my left. "This gonna take a while." I admitted.I continued along the bridge with a lot of slips and turns. Every slip sent my hands clinging onto the side bar. The more steps I took the more I left behind. It was like I was in Antartica. I found myself in front of my house. I stepped closer and walked the stairs. I opened the door. -The End

Forest Lakes

The last week of last year, we went to Forest Lakes camp. The trip was long, but it was worth it. We stayed there for a few days and had a lot of fun. One day, all the boys who were in my room went and took a shower, we got changed. Then, this girl came out of nowhere turned off the lights and more girls came, when the lights came back on they had our towels and started whipping us! We got them back by going in their room and sprayed them with water guns. There was a flying fox where you get in, and half way through the ride the girls take a picture of you. My friend went and took a picture of them!

Cross Country Battle CCB

It was one of the most boring times of a special running event. Sitting down and getting pins and needles while your bum gets sore. The only thing I enjoyed about Cross Country was finding old friends from your past schools. I sat near the room fifteen year seven boys and chatted about how we were gonna die out there. Once the year seven girls left the rest started watching videos about guys free-running for us to get pumped. Before I knew it, the year seven boys were called to go next. The call hit my ears like a hammer. That was only the beginning of my nightmare.

It stung. My legs felt like they were gonna explode. They clung onto the ground like dried cement. My legs begged me to sit down and yell: "I'm gonna die!" as I walked out of the Hall. Everyone was scattered around the place. It was time to kick some syndicate arse.
My legs thumped the floor in warm up. To ease the pain, I decided to think about that I was gonna win ten million dollars if I did it. That made me feel better. Then it was time to run.

My feet stomped the  floor each time I jogged. Passing people at all times and seeing old friends. Up hills didn't stop me from over coming the race. My laces weren't on my side at the time.

I reached the school after several agonising jogs and sprints. My friends cheering me on. I passed the yellow line, and came 103rd.

Dear diary,

Today I had a great time in the Nightmare Academy! I made 2 new friends: Charlie and Theodore. Theodore isn' t really that good of a friend. He calls Charlie "his best friend". We went to the Nether and saw the Trout of Truth and it said that I'm not a Nethermancer, I' m a banisher. Theodore is a Nethermancer and Charlie is both.

Tomorrow, me and Charlie are going to do Begging Banishing class. While Theodore does Netherian Nethermancy. Banisher Rex said we get to pick weapons, and fight some Class 1 Ectobogs. It's going to be fun! Hopefully nobody gets hurt or even worse, killed! Sure, theirr Class 1s, but they might be too stronger than we can handle.

I thought I was going to be a Nethermancer, but instead I am a Banisher.

Sincerely, Violet Sweet.

Charlie Benjamin

Hello, my name is Charlie, Charlie Benjamin. And I have felt as if I was the loneliest person on earth. It all started in nursery school...I would sleep in nap time. But the staff would here noises, terrible noises. And when they would come in to see if all the kids were fine, but they would see that the whole room would be destroyed. They thought I destroyed the room because I said: "I had a nightmare." and when I do get these "nightmares" I would accidentally open a portal to the Nether, and monsters would step through. They kicked me out of the school. My parents tried to find a new one but they all said no. We thought I would never have a nightmare again. But we were wrong. Really really wrong.

One day kids from the neighbourhood invited me over to a sleepover. My parents said: NO!, but I persuaded them to let me go. When I got to the sleepover I had a lot of fun. I made some friends. Then it was time to sleep. We all slept, but I had a nightmare. I woke up to see all the kids tied up in silk cocoons and hung up at the ceiling. Then the parents came and told me off. I told them that I saw a spider and the spider did it. But of course, they did not believe me.

One night it was time to go to sleep. I went to sleep. But I had a nightmare. I woke up and everything was fine. I went to my room door to go get a drink of water. Then a giant creature came out from the dark and attempted to kill me. But then, these people called the: Nightmare Academy came in and saved my life. They said that I had something called the Gift. It' s an ability to be able to open portals to the nether. They trained me, and that's when the adventure began...
