11/11/18 Armistice Day

This Sunday is Armistice Day. A Day where we celebrate the truce made by Allies of WW1.

 My class decided to commemorate Armistice Day by creating slide-shows fulled of information and pictures from WW1. My group is made up of very skilled people when it comes to slide presentations. With help from Pupuke, Tristan and Tiari we were able to make an outstanding slide presentation about Armistice Day.

Phones on Silent Please the Movie Will Begin Shortly...

Wednesday 7 November... The day my class and I become FAMOUS!

Today is the 11th annual Manaiakalani Film Festival. There are 13 schools in the Manaiakalani cluster... The theatres were crowded! So many films were show-cased that I'm not completely sure which film was my favourite but I am definitely proud of my school and my class.

Here is my class film. Filmed by Tupouseini, edited by Saluselo, script holder, Riiana and directed by me, Jessica.

Shh... Testing in Progress - Test Week

It's almost the end of week two and my brain has been working extremely hard. 

We've had all sorts of tests. From writing to mathmatics our week has been completely messed up. I am 75% positive I have improved my scores from the beginning of the year. 

Out of all the tests, my absolute favourite would have to be... The PAT mathmatics. Not completely sure why but, I think I love looking at the different diagrams and reading the story problems. I know what some of you may be thinking, "Well, that's a bit weird" but it's what I like.

Making Logos - Graphics with Mr Pineda

Today, the 17th of October, my class returned to Tamaki College. My group and I, were designing logos for a charity we chose.

I chose Domestic Abuse as my charity. I believe no one should be treated as if they don't have a life by being physically pushed, kicked or worse. That's why I chose Domestic Abuse as my charity. As I've mentioned before we made some logos supporting our charity. Here are my logo's so far.

Hello Term 4 and Goodbye Term 3!

The holidays have ended and Term 4 has begun. This Term is going to be the busiest by far! I am so excited and nervous about what lies ahead.

Preparing for Culture Groups

This week, we've sorted out our culture groups for the end of the year. We have a Maori, Samoan, Tongan and Cook Island group. I'm in the Samoan group. 

We are a few steps ahead by, practicing now. I am so thrilled that I can take part in the Samoan group! I enjoy learning more about my culture by dancing and expressing myself. Mrs Folu, our Samoan teacher, has been teaching me for three years so I am very thankful for her help. 

I can't wait until next term. The real journey begins. My adrenaline is going to go through the roof! Here are the Samoan girls from last year.

ToonDoo - Graphics with Mr Pineda

This week at Tech, I'm with a new teacher with a whole new style.

My new teacher for Tech is a man called, Mr Pineda. He does things based on drawing and designing. In other words, graphics. I am so stoked! Mr Pineda welcomed us into his classroom and introduced himself.

A few minutes of chatter and introductions later, we finally started our activities. We created an account on a wondous website called ToonDoo. Here is what I've created so far.
