Financial And Credits

Today we learnt about credit and financial rules from Miss Rachel and how to earn credits from the government. If you don’t pay your frequent payments due on the day you were supposed to pay it you would lose your credit from the government. When you make a mistake you must be honest with the one you a paying so they could understand and won’t file overdue papers.

We were learning about what we should really spend our money on the things we really need and who we can trust when we let people borrow your possessions.

Technology Reflection Week 2 Term 4

Last week at Technology we were designing t-shirt designs for our t-shirts with Mr Pineda our graphics teacher. I designed a bulletproof design with the a skull in the centre of it. The word Bullet was on top of the design which was above the skull and the word Proof was underneath the skull, the skull looked a bit like the punisher skull and words are bold. I didn’t have time to colour it in but it was just a draft, we finished technology at 10:40am then we came back school.

Kiwi Can Reflection Week 3 Term 4

Today we had another Kiwi Can session with Miss Tuia and Mr Numia, started it off with our energizer. Our energizer was following instructions. One person goes and look at our instructions then comes back and tells us what we had to do

Child Abuse Report

Child abuse

      What is physical abuse?

If you are physically hurting your child which isn't the right thing to do that is called child abuse cause parents shouldn't lay their hands on their own child and hurting them is the wrong thing to do. Children's parents has the responsibility on their own child's safety, if their kids don't feel safe around them and they have been sighted publicly abusing their child they should this out and find another way of discipline.

What is Child abuse?

Child abuse is when an adult smacks you or spanks you for doing the wrong thing but child abuse isn't the right thing to do. Child abuse is just not physical abuse only you can abuse your child in different ways such as emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexually abuse and mentally abuse.

Child Abuse Opinions

Danny Joe
Danny Joe disagrees with child abuse and he said they should ring someone for help and get support for their family.
Justin disagrees with child abuse
Its bad because kids gets hurt
Samuel thinks that the parents should separate from their children and send the children to a foster family
Sifa says it's good for child abuse because he said you can learn from one beating and never do it again
Yes child abuse is good for discipline
Voni thinks that the government should stop parents from abusing their own children
Lennyx says child is the wrong thing to do
its dangerous
its dangerous and very very wrong because parents should not lay hands on their children
He thinks its dangerous and the solution is to take the parents to prison
He thinks its very bad and it could affect their brain and it may carry on for future generations in their family
i think that the children should be put into foster homes and the parents should be put into jail for a certain amount of time.
Ilalio says child abuse is wrong
No because when they get the beatings it will continue on onto their children and it will become a cycle
I think that child abuse is wrong and that it should stop. I also think that the government should step up and actually do something about child abuse because right now not much has been done.
I think parents should be separated from their kids and put in Mental Hospitals. They shouldn't be abusing their kids but just growling them. If parents continue abusing their kids, then the kids will start abusing their own kids, so it will be going in circles.
I think child abuse is mean to the children and parents should stop that because it is not a nice thing to hit a child or put them down and making them feel bad about themselves.Children should be cared for by their parents or caregiver.They shouldn't hit them and call it discipline they should just send them to their room.So I think child abuse is bad.
It’s not good
He said it's no good
Fine disagrees with child abuse because she said it’s wrong
No because children don’t deserve to get hurt for nothing
No because it’s not good for children to get hurt
No because it’s against the law
No because it’s bad for you and it’s sore
It’s bad for the kids to get hurt
It’s not good for kids to get hidings
No because people can follow on what they are doing because it’s bad, dangerous, scary and the parents will die

Early Childhood Centre

It was cold once room 10 walked out of the classroom and went to the library. Once we got to the library we had to choose one simple book, a less complicated where the younger ones from the early childhood centre could understand most of it. Once we got our book we made our way down to the Early Childhood Centre. When we got to the centre we sat down then stood up to sing a song, the song we sang was "if your happy and you know it". After we finished our song we had to pick a younger child to read to him and play with him. Me and Lennyx chose Lucas. We read to him and played around with him, after that we had to leave because our time was over. We went to put our shoes on and was getting ready to go back class.

Year 8 TC Reflection

On Tuesday 28th of April the year 8s from Pt England, Tamaki Primary, Glen Innes Primary, Ruapotaka, Panmure Bridge , St Pius and Glenbrae met in the auditorium. We went to Tamaki College to have a tour around the school. They gave us name tags, a house code and a USB. My group was called R La, R La stood for Rata.

Our first class was science with Mrs Smallwood. Mrs Smallwood taught us how to make ice cream with a Ziploc bag. You needed 2 ziploc bags 1 large one and one small one, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 and a half cups of milk or cream, 1 quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract, 6 tablespoons of rock salt and enough ice to fill the large ziploc bag half way. We started the process with the small bag first by pouring milk in first then putting in the 1 tablespoon of sugar and then adding 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence. After we finished with the small ziploc bag we started with the large ziploc bag by filling the bag with ice until it reached the halfway point then we added 6 tablespoons of rock salt. We put the small bag into  the large bag and started shaking for 5 minutes until it was ready.

After science class we went to our remaining classes we had physical education with Doris. We played three games we had hand soccer, basketball and touch. we kept playing but the other team won then it was time for interval so we went back to the auditorium and ate.

Term 1 Inquiry Project

Details :

Name: Velociraptor or Raptor or Swift Thief
Abilities: Sickle claw or killer claws
Looks: Has a skin colour that blends in the bush
Height: 2m 6.6ft in length
Weight: 15 kgs and 33lb
Diet: Carnivore feeds on meat
Discovered: 1924
Lived: 65 - 75 million years ago`

Velociraptor F acts:

A Velociraptor existed 73 million years ago and it is the same size as a turkey. The Velociraptor uses its claws from its legs to kill there preys and it is also first ever reptile to be found dead in the Mongolia desert-1992. Velociraptor eats fly birds that are big and large, also keep claws closed and sharp on them so they would not escape.


The fossils, unearthed from a red sandstone mound in Inner Mongolia and China in 2008 consist of a collection of heavily eroded Protoceratops Bones with two small, curved, serrated teeth that belonged either to Velociraptor or a close relative. Back when they lived roughly 65 million to 70 million years ago, the area was probably a scrubby desert with lots of sand and rocks and not too much vegetation, though there were bodies of water, with life quite lush closer to the rivers.

When did it live:

Velociraptor roamed the Earth about 85.8 million to 70.6 million years ago during the end of the Cretaceous Period. Velociraptor is one of the most bird-like dinosaurs ever discovered. It was small and fast, and the sickle-shaped claw on the second toe of each foot made it a formidable predator. A special bone in its wrist allowed it to swivel its wrist sideways in a flapping motion and to fold its arm against its body like a bird. This motion allowed it to snap its arms forward to grab fleeing prey and is an important part of the flight stroke in modern birds.

Anzac Remembrance Ceremony

This morning Glenbrae School held a small Anzac remembrance ceremony in remembrance of the Anzac soldiers who went to war and died for our country. The whole Glenbrae School gathered up in the front of school near the gates to celebrate the remembrance of the Anzac soldiers. We started it off with a song He Honore, then our guest Left Lieutenant Geoffrey said a speech about Anzac and was explaining what it meant and where it originated. After his speech the whole school read a poem by Laurence Binyon a poem he wrote for the fallen on September 1914 it read “They shall grow not old, as we are left grow old : Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them in the morning”. Then we put crosses on the ground in remembrance of the Anzac soldiers, in orders of youngest classes to the older classes. After the ceremony room 10, 9 and 8 went to the hall to have questions and answers with Left Lieutenant Geoffrey.

Holiday Recount

My holidays didn’t really start off well. On good Friday we had church in the morning then a meeting after the church had finished.

Then when I got home i got dressed and then me and my uncle had caught the bus to Britomart. We stayed at Britomart until 10:51pm then we walked to Britomart bus stop and waited for the rail bus to arrive. On the bus timetable it said the last bus arrives at 12:35am. We had waited and waited until it was past 1:00am but no bus came so we had gone to Mcdonalds and gotten a family box and had to walk back to Glen Innes. We got back home approximately 3:31am and it had taken us approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes to walk back.

The next day was my brothers birthday he had turned 17 years old. My mum had called me to go with her and my brother to Sylvia park. She had bought him a XL beats by dr dre pill for his birthday present .

Easter Sunday had come and it was time to celebrate the sacrifice of Jesus. Easter Sunday was great day for celebrating Jesus’s sacrifice. Then things started off well to the holidays. My holidays were very busy and exhausting.
