Librarian Duty #7

Librarian Duty #7                             26/10/2016

After I did long distance on the field, I went to the library to do my duty. I got there and Brooke was already there putting books away so I helped her out. Mrs. Ward added more to the pile so we had more to do, we didn't mind. After I placed the books in their rightful order I checked on how everyone was going as I started reading my own book. Time flied as it was already time to pack up and leave. I told everyone the library was closed and I as on my way! 
The C.A.R.E values I showed today were collaborate,(helping Brooke with the books) connecting, (we connected to see who would do which books) questioning, (I asked Mrs. Ward where a book should go) and Communication (because we talked).

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • Parliament and government are not the same thing, they are different in many ways.
  • A democracy is where heaps of people can choose what they want to do. A dictatorship is where it's one persons choice to decide and no one gets to decide.
  • The speaker oversees everyone in parliament he can send people out of the room if he needs (wants) too.

Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.

We went to Koru games in term 3 and played well and fierce.

The girls soccer team had been practicing for the whole of three terms to get ready for the big day. It didn't go as well as we thought, but we fought well, and proud. We played about five schools throughout the whole tournament. We lost all of them accept one was quite special to me. Since a girl broke her leg while we were playing, we could choose weather to keep on playing or do a penalty shoot out. Mrs Alice (our coach) chose penalty shoot out. I had been chosen to be one of the five people that would try to score past their goalie, so far all my team members had failed at that task but when I stood up, I wanted to make my school proud, so I stood up there, got ready, and...
I SCORED A GOAL!!! My first one in the tournament (and the teams only one). On the way back to school I felt good and i'm looking forward to Koru games next year!

Peer mediator Duty #8

Peer mediator duty #8

Sophie and I walked around the school and found no major problems that lunchtime but we still did our duty for the full twenty minutes.

The c.a.r.e values/qualities we showed were communication - for the minor problems, questioning (minor problems) and connecting to those people.

Peer mediator duty #7

Peer mediator duty #7

I did peer mediator duty today with Sophie, there was only one problem which was small, (the people just needed to stay away from each other) so yeah.
We walked around for the whole time then handed the peer mediation stuff to the next people. The  CARE qualities we showed were community, active thinking, and respect because we connected to the people that had the problem, communicated with them to find the problem and questioned what happened!
