HLC #5 A5. Design and create an artwork for the classroom.

A5. Design and create an artwork for the classroom.

Today I am designing an artwork for the year 7/8 hub. It probably won't go up on the wall or anything because I have made it at the END of the year so yeah. 
My design will say in the middle "Year 7/8 Hub" and it will have a pretty boarder and I will make it on paper.

HLC #4 C7. Start a new hobby, research it and make something to give to someone as a gift.

Today I chose to take up a new hobby for knitting!
 I have already created a scarf from scratch and I will give it to my sister for Christmas. I will also write a card regarding I made it myself and that it was for a home learning challenge to help get it for my distinction badge.

Student Leader Chorus box meeting #10

      Student Leader Chorus box meeting #10 

Today we had a short meeting; one, about if we got our excellence badges and who hasn't got them, and two, the chorus box ideas. Four people each day are going out to the chorus box on Ensign street to paint the first two coats on. Then i'm going out (maybe with a couple of others) to draw the design on the box. This was just a short meeting and that's what we've got so far.

The care values I showed in this meeting were: Community, Active Thinking, Excellence and Respect.

Wellington trip #9 Part 4

Wellington trip #9                             28/11/2017

                                                                  Day 4 (final day)

Today is the final day, so before starting breakfast we had to gather our things in our bunk room together and move out. Today we are one group so we get to go around Wellington with Tracy (finally).
Our activities we are doing are: The national library of New Zealand... 
The botanic gardens, and the cable cars, and flying back on the plane to Christchurch.

Starting with the cable cars, they were really fun to ride and some people had to stand up because we had to share with the public but me, Alex and Tracy got seats facing each other so it was all okay for getting up there, then we walked, once we got to the top, to a playground that we stayed at for around 40 minutes while everyone hung around and played at the playground in the botanic gardens, then finally we caught a bus and went to the airport and while we waited for our flight we took pictures with the dragon from lord of the rings, Smaug:

Then we had our flight and we travlled back safely and now i'm writing to thank everyone for this awesome trip and I had so much fun so thank you!!

Wellington trip #7 Part 3

Wellington trip #7                          21/11/2017

This is the third blog post on our trip to Wellington so if you have not already seen the one before this you can use this link to get it.
                                             Day 3
Today was the third day so we are doing what the other group did yesterday, so today they are doing we did yesterday in return. What they did which we are doing is; Going to parliament for the normal tour, seeing Te Papa floors 1-3, and going to Capital E.
We are really excited for capital E because group 2 said it was awesome!
Starting with parliament, we met Ruth Dyson and she told us about the tunnel under ground that goes from Bowen House to the Beehive so the prime minister and other ministers don't get swarmed by news reporters on their travels...
We actually got to go in there too so we experienced what most other schools don't get to see when they go there. 

In Te Papa (the national museum of New Zealand) we saw amazing things and sculptures about World War 1 in the exhibition that was on at the time. In Capital E we did some really cool stuff and I was the vision mixer so I did the transitions and got the cue from the director to change screens for different parts (e.g weather news etc...) of the live production going on.

Wellington trip #6 Part 2

Wellington Trip #6                             20/11/2017

                                Day 2

Carrying on from the blog I did before this about our Wellington Trip... The next day we split off into two group, unfortunately Tracy got split into the other group with Mr. Brown and Mr. Muller; and me and Alex went into Mr. Lad
|brooks group. But that was all fine, today we were going to Parliament to do a role-play of how it works and we also got fish and chi[s afterwards that you can see in the photo here:

we also went to the reserve bank which was actually across the road.There we talked about different banks and what the reserve bank does and every question he'd ask that we were to get correct, we get a lollipop. So that was nice.
We ended the day with Going along the waterfront to the building Capital E was in and instead of doing it the first day we did something which was called the Media Lab and we did 3D computer games which was good too.
