Static Images

W.A.L. About Statistics.

Statistics are the images that you see and how they affect you and make you feel in different ways. Well our literacy task was to find an image (labelled for re-use) and answer the questions from the white-board.

What is the photo about? The photo is about a man spiritually ascending to heaven while his wife, who in real life before the train crash treated him badly and wasn’t accepted to paradise with him.

How does the image effect you? It reminds me of the struggles we go through in life and the temptations we get during it. This picture tells us how we should be humble, trustworthy and thankful for what we get.

What is the unique part of the photo? The unique and interesting part of this image is seeing the ascendant of a man to heaven with the cool coloured sky in the background.

Hosannah - Episode 4 'Barks Burgers'

Future Aspirations!!!

Making my way to the hall with excitement, I was hoping to be persuaded by the speakers talking to us about how to make good decisions for a good future. These inspirational people had recently made changes in their lives or had achieved their goals since the young ages (and most of them came from the east of Auckland.)

‘Today is the day I start making a fresh, good and new personality.’ I said to myself. Meeting famous stars from New Zealand and Worldwide is very dream catching. Arriving to the hall, the year seven and eight students of Pt England School were separately assigned. Year 7’s in the hall with ‘Tristan Pang’ who is a 12 year old student attending a school in Mt. Eden called ‘Ficino’ and is a year 13!!!!!!!!!! And also is excited for university. And Aisha who is a Marine Biologist.

In the street were the 8’s who were with Mosa Mafileo and Emma Brown. My favourite speaker of the day who really inspired me was Mosa Mafileo. He was hilarious with his jokes and tempting for good choices. Mosa told us to chase our ‘ddrrreeeaammmsss’ but not only that, we have to make sure we catch it. That was the most inspiring quote I had heard and also made my day.

“My goal is to catch my dreams and turn it into a reality.”

Lisia and Hosanna, 'The Girl Who Survived.'

Sannah and Siah from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

In term 3, Lisia and I created a movie. Our task was to make a film from events in history so we made a movie about a little girl named, 'Bronia Brandman' who survived in the holocaust in World War II. All the information was found from a book I had read 2 years ago entitled, "The Girl Who Survived."
Hope you enjoy!

Who is the 'Banana Thief?' - Narrative Writing

With enthusiasm, I spread out a picnic sheet under the gigantic tree which blocked me from the bright sun. It was a hot day packed with many people whom came to visit the animals at the best zoo in town, 'Mysterious, Animal World!' In the distance were, rabbits endlessly jumping high in the air, turtles slowly crawling onto the sand as it dries itself in the sun, venomous snakes viciously spiking tongues through the glass window, and 'Monkeys,' the worst animals in town or should I say on earth.

Carelessly throwing my picnic basket and banana box in the shade, I started to walk through an adventurous aisle to have a look at the awesome view of animals. Keeping an eye under the tree which had suddenly zoomed out from the vision of mine , I had just realised that I've gone too far. Slowly stumbling back towards the tree, luckily everything was still in place since the very beginning. 

"Should I visit the monkeys?" I humbly asked myself. Nah, just a waste of time. In the car park were entertaining elephants. So I decided to take a look. 

Peeking out for the basket, I see that my banana box had gone missing! Worryingly running round and round to look for my bananas, 'Who has been a cheeky pants and decided to steal? Thats unusual in Animal World.’

From behind the tree was a wagging tail and on the other side w-w-was was BANANA PEELS!. Wondering what it was, I slowly sneaked up towards the left hand side which had banana peels.

Taking a deep breath, I faced my fears and confidently stood straight.
“MMOONNKKEEYYSS!!” Eating my banana......  

'Slip, Slop, TOMATO FIGHT!'

France is pretty hot over here compared to Auckland.
Yes, yes I’m in France staying with my aunt Tania and Uncle Teanui for the holiday. AND EVERYTHING HERE WAS 1/2 price! Chhooiice, or should I say, ‘choix.’

My ‘family’ and I were in town shopping for something special...... They said it was a surprise for me. But goggles, togs, gloves, what were they thinking? All that I could think of being a surprise for me in France was swimming. But it was no difference to Auckland.

As I waited outside from the entrance door, an annoying voice from a speaker unexpectedly spoke up. The echoing vocal came from far away in all different directions. Panicking, I ran inside to my cousins and told them what I had saw and heard. ‘Don’t worry Raphael, your surprise is COMING NEAR!’ They answered horridly.

From the distance, every single person from outside faced to the biggest tower in town. WHAT!? I don’t get it. Suddenly, the tower squirted out blood and created a stream which flowed near us!

Frightfully dropping my jaws with horrific feelings, a war began! “What’s that smell? OMG, its tt-tt-ttoomm..... TOMATOES!”

Within a minute or two of crazy clowns fighting and enjoying themselves, I became irritated with people spiking me in the face big time. So my only choice was to join them.

Slipping and slopping in the Tomato pool, I had the best time of my life. Benecio, Aaron and I jumped off from the high buildings down to the refreshing tomato which shivered me up.

With embarrassment, my cousins and I were growled at for joining in without the rest of the family and had to go home. Apart from that, tomatoes made my day.
