After rugby practise Chloe walks home alone “Man I live far! Good thing this alleyway is here!” while Chloe was walking she heard twigs snap behind her, as soon as she heard that she had chills down her spine. she looked back but saw that no one was there so she kept on walking. then suddenly out of no where She heard footsteps walking closer to her.“OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH” she said in her head, she was too frightened to turn around. Her legs started wobbling every time she took a step It felt like they were going to snap.

“Gosh this alleyway takes forever!” She starts running as fast as a cheetah, Panting like she had run out of air her palms sweating hard. She soon gets the feeling that the person is catching up.

She finally has the courage to turn around. But then.. The person covers her eyes!! “AAAHHHHHH!!!!” Screamed chloe. She snatched the persons hands off and quickly turned around. “EMILY! Oh my goodness you scared the living lights out of me!!” “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOSH! I thought you would've noticed it was me!” Replied Emma.

Review:
This book is about a girl named Emma Jacks. She is apart of a secret spying facility named SHINE. There is a evil spying facility Named SHADOW. A agent from shadow is destroying the cherry blossom trees in japan. She is doing that because she doesint want anything to be more beautiful than her.

Excerpt: 
Evil agent Kuramiko Kitsune is trying to sabotage the traditional japanese cherry blossom festival. But why and how? Special agent EJ12 needs to stay calm and keep her mind focused if she is to stop them in time. That's the easy part. As EJ12, Emma Jacks can do anything. So why does she find dealing with mean-girl Nema so hard?
Perhaps she doesn't at all....


Fia fia 2014

video
On wednesday we had a big event called the Fia fia. We have fia fia because it for a celebration. This is a huge event for the point englanders because this is a once a year occasion. Its just like the polyfest but we do our fia fia at night.

As I walked through the breeze I can smell the year 9s cooking the sausages on the bbq. I can see people buying all kinds of food and drinks. “Hey Mya!!” Said Sapphire and dhara. “Hi guys” I say awkwardly. “Lets go get some food” I say “Yeah alright

‘ sapphire says. Everywhere I look I see people with baby carriages! And cupcakes!! I kept on walking around the food stalls because I didn't know what to buy! I finally came to my senses and bought a sausage for 2 dollars! I kept on walking around to see more of my friends but then BEEEEEP “alright everyone go to your changing rooms” Mr burt said into the Mic.

“Oh my gosh! This happened so quickly” I thought. I was in the samoan group which means I had to class 13 to change. When I arrived I went straight to the bathroom to change into my black t-shirt. I quickly ran back into class 13 to get my lava lava and do my hair. A parent put my hair into a tidy bun and I was obviously thankful, next I went to mose so he can put lipstick on my cheeks. We were all ready to go outside and sit on the field.

The first group was the senior kapa haka. My favorite part was when they used their pois. After the Kapa haka finished My friend sapphire came to sit next to me after she put on her samoan costume. Mrs Wild was sitting in front of me and sapphire and then suddenly sapphire said “Im so bored I need to take some selfies, does anyone have a camera?” Mrs wild laughed and said “I have a camera but its old fashioned” I bursted out laughing at sapphire. But then suddenly The senior samoan group had to go to the stage to get ready while the asian group were performing.

My heart was pounding, my palms were sweating. I was so scared and excited at the same time. “And now for the senior samoan group” “WOOOHOOO!” shouted the audience

As I walked on the stage my legs started shaking. The music came on and we had to do our Siva (dance) after we (the girls) Finished our dance the boys had to do their haka.

Then the azonto. And finally Rowana and christian had to do their solo in our semi circle.

After rowanas solo finished we all stood up and said “tofa soifua samoa, CHEEWHOO!”I was sad that this was our last performance of the samoan group but im glad I did it!
Thank you Timmi, Mose and Mrs Nua for teaching/helping us with the samoan siva.

Rachel Smalley


Rachel Smalley is a newstalk ZB. She has been in the news lately because she said something in her mic during a tv break, she thought her mic was off. So now people think different about her because she said that.

So she said something rude about kiwi women. The things she said in the mic were and I quote “That NZ women's average weight of 72kg makes them 'a bunch of lardos” Her comment has upset many women around NZ. She admits that she left the mic on but her convo was meant to be off air.

She soon made an apology on air to all women she upset. She said “ “I deeply regret the comments. My comments were offensive. I'm sorry. It was a genuine mistake. " She bursted out crying while her live talk.

Many people say “Why should she apologize!? If she believes women over 72kg are heifers and lardos why should she say sorry!” Well I think she should apologize because she said something bad about many other women. She should think about putting herself in their shoes.

Show not tell setting

My teeth start chattering “I'm bundled up in 3 blankets and I'm still freezing!” I say repeatedly. . I hear the wind howling, soaring and crickets outside suddenly a big gust of wind sends my curtain up touching my ceiling revealing the bright moon. “UGH my window's open, I'm too cold and too lazy to handle this.” My body feels stiff , it feels like its going to break.
