On a nice, bright, sunny day, Pt England School decided to have an Olympic day which included EVERYONE!! On the hard-courts, every kid had to get split up into countries. There were lines full of people waiting in their countries and I was in ‘Portugal.’ Our team captain was Vanilla and our teacher was Ms Burn.

“Okay Pt England School, it’s time for the march around the courts.” Said Miss Va’afusuaga. My body shivered because I was nervous.  It was Portugal’s turn and there we were walking around feeling like athletes. That was the Opening Ceremony.

About 5 minutes later, our events started and we played handball first. During the day, I saw a little girl sitting on our school mountain. So I decided to go and get her down. As soon as I got up, I saw her crying. (Her name was, ‘Mao.”) “Are you alright Mao, what’s the problem?” I asked her as I sat down. She said that she got told off multiples of times by her teacher, but it wasn’t her. It was her friends being silly and blaming things on her. I felt very sorry for her so I tried to solve the problem.

We walked down the steeply hill on the mountain and I told her teacher and her teacher, ‘Mr Harris’ was feeling sorry for her. The problem was SOLVED finally....

For rest of the day, we had a lot of fun and I felt happy. My group were laughing with laughter.

‘Taking Action and to Change My Life..........’

Recently, we went to hear the famous, “Brown Brother” speech/poem by Joshua Iosefo. The year 7&8’s were very excited and lucky to see him. I was really inspired by him. He hated science maths and english but loved P.E,Drama and music just like me. Joshua is a Samoan and Niuean.  

Mr and Mrs Iosefo are very lucky have an intelligent child. Joshua’s speech was all about how he see’s the world and mostly about skin colour, "look at me Brown Brother." After a really cool and fun speech, we all thought the same, “We really should change!” I couldn't wait until another exciting speech from him. If you wish to watch his speech, click on this link.

Finally Getting A Chance To Have A Conversation With The Popular ‘Oprah!’

I have been learning about conversations (speech marks.) Room19's task was to write a narrative of meeting your fan. Not particularly your favourite fan, but a lively famous person. I chose Oprah and this was our conversation.....................

I strolled onto the stage, “WOOHOO!” I shouted.
“I’m finally famous.” I said.
“Hello Hosannah,” Oprah Winfrey says while I finally sat down with the audience cheering.
Oprah asked, “How are you?”   
“Good thanks.” I replied. I was thrilled to see her.
“Oh my, I cannot believe I am with one of the richest human beings in the WORLD!” I said and again, the crowd went wild on the Oprah show.  You may know that I am on T.V .
She asked me really hard ‘questions’ and that’s where I get really embarrassed with goosebumps.
She asked things like, “When you first met me what did you think of me?.......... What’s been on your mind?........ What are you excited about at the moment?.......When was the last time you made a difference to somebody?....... Who are you really happy for at the moment?....... When was the last time you felt inspired?” I tried my best and she was Happy!  “So tell us, why are you here with me today?” She asked.
I said, “I am just one of your biggest fans and I am SO SO SO SO SO excited to get to know you more.”
“Well, I am very glad you’re here now, Hosannah, think of a conversation for you and I talk about and tell me all about it, I will help you out.”
I thought, “Well think I have to be a better Pt Englander.”
“What is a Pt Englander?” Oprah asked me. My response was,
“Well I am a student at Pt England school in New Zealand, Auckland.”

Soon after, that fun was over and I asked finally,


“Sure Hosannah.” Oprah answered


In the land of, “Tubby-Land,” 4 big, giant, cute babies meet. They were, Tinky Winky=Purple, Laa-laa=Yellow, Dipsy=Green and Po=Red. The 4 babies named themselves,”The Teletubbies!”

Four Teletubbies enjoy their times in Tubby-land until..................

One day, they all had a Scooter Race. “Ready, steady GO!” shouted Laa-laa. They were all having fun. Po won because she loves to honk on her wee Scooter.  Dipsy and Laa-laa went well BUT!!! Tinky Winky fell and this was where the problem happened.....................

How did they solve the problem? Well, Po ran back to her house and got some pluster, Laa-laa had a bottle of water in her pocket to  stop the blood from coming out and Dipsy massaged him. Tinky Winky was crying.

After all, the problem was solved and Tinky Winky felt better. Next, they all went home and “Whoo that was fun” said Po.

Peaceful Beach, Peaceful Land (Narrative)

It was a magnificent, sunny day and I felt FRESH! My parents thought it was a good idea to have a family swim at the private beach next to our hotel. “AAAaaaahhhh,” I already feel comfortable.

We arrived and “Ouch!” I cried out loud as I fell down on the hot and crunchy sand which relaxed my feet.  My family, friends and I were on a 6 week vacation in Tahiti at the Bora-bora hotel. We were in a beautiful resort. It was so beautiful and so nice that I even asked my mum if we could live there.

Our time at the beach was EXTRAVAGANZA!  FUN!! The water was nnnnnnnnnnniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicccccccccccccccccccccccccceeeeeee and relaxing and so clean. “This is the best vacation I’ve ever had!” My sister shouted. We all agreed and smiled. Playing with my beach volley-ball , it suddenly floated down and further away.

Feeling too worried and horrified, I swam my hardest to try and get it. But by the time I arrive near it, it goes even further away.

“Hosannah, relax, don’t worry, the floatable is coming to get you.” But my mum’s words were lost. It was frightening and I was half way between a BIG beach.

Finally the big boat came to rescue me. I can see someone very familiar driving it from the water. “Oh hi Dad" I said. Into the boat I went with my beach volley-ball and away we went.

We all left after a funny day. My holiday was more fun after all..................

Conjoined Twins Separated!

Joined twin girls separated in marathon surgery

In the recent past, two conjoined twins, Eliza and Mary were just separated at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. They were joined on the chests and had survived a very difficult and hard 7 hour marathon surgery. Eliza and Mary are feeling better and are still recovering. It was the 21st case separating conjoined twins.

I feel really happy that they had survived a marathon surgery. If you wish to read more about their surgery, click on this link.

"My Experience Of Being a Manaiakalni Presenter!”

It was another time of fun laughter where I get to present at Sylvia Park for the Manaiakalani Film Festival 2012. Naomi and I represented rm 19 yesterday and we had to stay at sylvia park the whole day. We presented for the first session and the fourth session.

I felt so excited to go. I saw a lot of different films from different schools. Room 19's movie was entitled, "From The Inside." Waiting and waiting for the fourth session, Vivienne, Shoal, Naomi and I felt vvveeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyry hungry.

It was nearly time for the the Pt England Intermediate, Tamaki College and Pamnure Bridge Intermediate lot to come and was also time when Naomi and I got ready to present.

Everyone came and finally settled down in the theatre.

Walking on to the stage, and into the bright light we went, I can barely see anybody in the theatre. "Hi my name is Naomi." She said. " And my name is Hosannah!" I said loud and proud. We said our speech and we walked off with a smile.

"What a cool day I had." I said. But my friends and I felt exhausted and had head-aches.

Narrative: Emma's Mum!

There was going to be a production at Emma’s school and they needed good actors to help them at their rehearsals. They were decorating  the school hall so it looks creative.  Mariana (new school girl) told Emma to bring her mother, (everyone knew that Emma’s mother was an actor.) Suddenly Alice (a student from her school) said, “If you weren’t new here, Mariana, you’d know that Emma’s mum never goes anywhere. Mum reckons she never leaves the house.”

Potiki Dance Crew!

A fantastic and talented group of kids, ages 12-16 years old are competing in The National Hip-hop Competition. They are called, “Potiki” Dance crew.  They were practising for the National Hip-Hop Competition and it is only one month away! Their coach is Mariabeth and most of them were Pacific Islanders. One day, I wish to be in a dance crew and become famous.

Meeting George!

This week, our task was to complete our “Daily No Exceptions.” The first step was to read an article and write a narrative of what happened before or after, so this is what I imagined.

Kevin and his friend, Tama grew older and became famous All Black Players. They were just like the old man George Nepia who taught them how to kick. Both boys had good couriers too.

Tama and Kevin became the two best kickers in their group. Both of them let everyone know their story when they met George in their young age.

My Favorite Film Festival Movie!

Yesterday was a very fun and loong day for Naomi and I. We stayed at Sylvia Park from 8:00am-3:30pm! We enjoyed the Manaiakalani Film Festival 2012.

Lots of schools came and  presented. When the year 7&8’s came, it was my time to present. It was fun and cool.

We watched rm 18’s movie, “The Test!”It was my favourite movie of all. The funniest actors were Starford, Jephte and Raihan. What I loved about their movie is how they were really into acting and I like the camera shots. Room 18 ROCKS!

You can watch the movie, above! If you would like to visit Room 18's blog, you can click on this link.

Balloon Challenge!

On a bright morning Mr Harris decided to make it a fun morning. It was a 'Balloon Challenge!!' For our task, we were each handed with a balloon and a skewer.  Then we have to try and stick the skewer in balloon without it popping without the magic ingredients. I was the first person to pass it and Athena was the first person to POP IT!!

After everyone else finally passed the first task, we took turns trying to blow our balloon into a bottle.  It was so difficult that a lot of people turned purple. We all failed that task. I thought that my ideas will work.

We all thought it was impossible because we never made it through. But do you think you can make it through? Go to this site and follow the steps, GOOD LUCK!
