Future Aspirations

On the 26th of november we had special guests attend our intermediate. The people who came were Andrew Patterson, Anthony Samuels, Paula Fakalata and Amelia Nufe.

Anthony Samuels speech was about “To miharo hoki” that means “You are awesome” He was telling us about his past when he was producing What now, he was doing that job for a very long time! Mr Samuels also said to believe that you are awesome so you can be awesome and never let your past defeat you future.

Paula Fakalata was talking about how people laugh when he says his name because his name sounds like “Ebola”. When he was younger his teachers would always mispronounce his name. He asked us “which story do you want hear, the story where I almost died or the story where I almost made it.” “THE STORY WHERE YOU ALMOST DIED!!!” shouted everyone. He then told us about a story where he almost drowned.

Amelia nufe’s dream is to have her own clothing line. When she was younger people would always judge her because her brothers are in gangs, they would always think that she’ll follow their tracks and drop out. Amelia is now in university studying fashion, in her class she gets assignments to design clothes for events.

Nothings more important than friends, right? Friends are awesome because you can always count on them through the hard times because they can always cheer you up and they can give you advice about everything!

Friendship is when two or more people start socialising, playing and doing things together. Its very special because they’ll always be right beside you through thick and thin. There will be some arguments but in the end good friends always make up! You can also learn more about their culture (that’s if they’re a different culture).

Friendship is important because they’ll always back you up if you’re in trouble, they’ll always cheer you up in your darkest moments and they will always keep your secrets safe. Its very important to grow up with friends because you can always count on them to help you with things, like advice and many other things!

You can make good friends by treating someone with respect. You can also request for them to play with you at playtime. When they’re sad have enough courage to cheer them up by telling jokes!

La Luna

Here is my writing about the opening scene of a short pixar animation called La Luna.

One peaceful night the shimmering stars were  reflected in the calm ocean like a mirror, It was still with only a few gentle waves. The sky had a tint of purple, the glowing moon was creating an ombre effect in the sky.

A bulky man rowed the boat with strong strokes through the water leaving foamy bubbles behind. It pushed through the smooth water causing ripples to form. A little boy on the boat peered at the oars mesmerised by each stroke.

Who loves lollies?! I do of course, I mean seriously who's crazy enough to write a story about lollies! Sugar is obviously the main ingredient in lollies and chocolate. Even tho it tastes great its pretty dangerous, If you eat too much you might get ill. Before sugar lollies used to be made with honey.

My favorite lollies are gummy worms, m&ms, hard fruit candy, eclair lollies and raspberry licorice. My least favorite lolly is black licorice. What lollies are your favorite?!
