Reality Trip

What is a reality trip? Well I reality trip is when people from one country go to other countries to find out what they do as their technology and what types of jobs do they have for us. Their names are “Stephanie, Stevie, Peter, Kieran, and Ana”. Way before they even met each other when they were doing their usual old boring jobs.

So once they all came together they traveled to “Philippines” which took them over 15 hours to get their from “New Zealand” in Manila. The very first thing they did after heading off to the motel/hotel in the morning they started of the day by experiencing the jobs that the “Filipino people do in the Philippines”.

The things that they were focusing on to do once they met the boss is creating “Coil” to make hy-drives. And this one of the thing that they have just found out which was that most of them had no idea that “the Filipinos make the hy drives”. Did you know that they have to make over 15 thousand units a day so that’s particularly 300 units in 1 hour and 1 every made every second?  
They experienced that Esa the helper that works at the job where they create hy-drives for everyone around the globe. Showed them step by step how to make hy-drives with 2 little items stacked together, which is called “coils”. And what they do with the hy-drives is put them in computers, laptops, phones, i pods, tablets, TV's, and all those other cool technology equipment.

I will tell you about one person that is in this group that I know more about and not much about all the other people in this touring group! And her name is “Stephanie”. Stephanie loves her family, make up, dressing clothes, handbags, and other things that have to do all about her life. Did you know that Stephanie bought a $1000.00 painting as soon as she got out of the plane. And then she started going out to the supermarkets to buy clothing, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and dresses which cost over $400.00. And she gets paid $2000.00 every 9 months. So to be honest they're not really on a budget.

What was the most shocking thing that I have found out about this short film that we have been focusing on this afternoon. Which is that "Stephanie" gets paid $2000.00 every 9 mounts, and that people in "Philippine" don't have machines to do their work for them they have to do it by hand which is quite devastating and sad. And to be honest for me that isn't being financially responsible, if I was her I would rather save up all my money. I learnt that I have to be more rely able and respectful with my money, treat people that work there buts off fare and they way I would want to be treated, and the last thing is that going on tour is a nice thing to do especially in a group of people that you know that cares for you.

Trade an Enterprise


Our topic for 2015, term 3 is "Trade an Enterprise". So this topic is teaching and showing us how and what it looks like to "be enterprising, and how to be financially responsible. Team 5 is learning how to be "financially responsible" with our money. So we are doing a lot of creative things this term such as all the other teams at "Pt England school".

Shopping week 2 Explanation

For week 2 in our inquiry home classes we have to focus on how to be financially responsible, with our money, when we're on a budget? So the first thing we had to do is create a google form listing the things that we could buy from the store with the amount of money that we pick out the bucket as our budget. So our listing things are Items that we need at home, brand, how much does each item cost and what does it add up to once we add every single item together. And if we don't have enough money to spend on the items that we need that is already listed we have to list all the things that we don't need.

"I know by now that you don't actually know what I am talking about but I will explain it properly now"! So once we list all the things that we need for our budget, with our listed amount of money of the cost of each item and added them all up by "sum". Then we would need to go to our home teacher "Miss Moala" and pick out a small piece of paper that say's the amount of money for our budget". So for example lets say I got our $200.00 as my budget. And I got $2.70 worth f items then I would have to take away some items over $70.00. 

And the market that we have to shop at is "Count Down". Which is actually really hard because every would rather go to "Pack'n'save". Where everything is on a low price like "$2.00 week, $1.00 week and much more lower prices. And we are shopping by there site because they can deliver the food to your house instead of you going up to get yourself.

Shopping: week 2

Today for our inquiry task we have been focusing on how we can be financially responsible with our money? Today we will be listing items that are needed at our homes, and putting them down as our budget. When we finished listing our needed items we went up to our teacher "Mrs Moala" to pick out a piece of paper which tells you the price that is on the piece of paper that you have to spend. So I got $65.00 out of $1000.00! I mean I could've done better. This helps us 
with our team topic that we are doing this term. 

Second netball game for term 3

"Wow" I am so happy but scared being we will be going against one of the best teams on the court which is "Holly cross B". I know we will win this game today because we have worked a little bit well at training on Friday, besides its a good effort to be winning our game especially on the 2nd game back from our school holidays. We have courage, strength and hope to win this game tonight at 5.05.

Our team headed down to the courts at 4.20 o'clock', to warm up for our game before we head on the court in our positions. We started the 1/4 (1st quarter) of the game and our subs were "Lesieli and Asena". After 3/4 of the game we began our last quarter and they went on the court to win that game and have a lot of fun. 

"Daring dong dang" the buzzer went and our score keep and umpires told us that "we just won by 4 points out of 20" so that means we got  16 points and "Holly cross" got 12 points. We enjoyed a good game and hopefully we will do the exact same thing on our next game with the help of "Tana, Mariea, and Helen". Thank you all for the amazing help even though our games haven't finished just yet!

Shopping and Change

Needs VS Wants

‘NEEDS’ and ‘WANTS’

Introduction:
How we spend money all depends on things that we need and things that we want. “This essay will explain what the difference is between what a ‘want’ is and what a ‘need’ is. Its things that people are eyeing out, desperately want, or been needing it for quite some time. What does it feel like to spend money on things that is needed and wanted?

What is a want?
How can we be financially responsible if all people want to spend their money on, is on things that they “want” instead of needs? Like spending your money something that is just knew in the store that you really want, but you can’t hold back to wait and buy it later “because you never know if what you want is going to run out”. Things that you desperately want are things that are on high prices. Like for example Samsung touch screen water resistant, large TV screens, goodies (lollies, chocolate, chips, fizzy) and video games. Most of all spending your money these expensive items won’t really lead you to a happy life in the future “because these are just luxury items”.

What is a need?
What are necessity items that we need for our school, family and most of all ourselves? The parents children go out working for money to help pay for the bills, groceries, clothing and things that are needed at home. Things are very expensive in our days because when people go to the super markets “the shopkeepers put their prices so high, and sometimes it’s impossible for people to pay for items in the shop”. Like going to the bank early in the morning or late at night to get out the money from the bank. The first thing that we desire are things that we want but we desperately know we need to pay is groceries for the house and the bills (light bill, tv bill, house bill, electric bill). Clothing, food, water, drinks and so much more. These are all the things that we need not want. If we have no money at all then what can we do? That’s why our government had all these jobs for people to work their way for money for their families. Or holding a garage sale and selling some of the things that you don’t need or old things in your house!


Why is one more important than the other?
How do we find difference between a want and a need and which one is more important to help us in the future? From my point of view I agree with “need” because sometimes things just happen out of no where like for example “today is a ‘sunny day’ and 2 minutes later out of no where ‘rain’ starts pouring from the sky”. It’s just like me wanting to buy the Samsung 6 edge but they haven’t paid for the bills and food for the children and families staying our lovely homes. Most of the time I ask my mum for things that I want which isn’t fair for the rest of the people in the house and that’s why people work all day long by wages and celery for the money to help around the house. Needing things is much, much, much important than needing things because needing things is just you being greedy, inconvenient and childish. Helping out your parents is the most important thing in the world, not money, school, and your future even if it does count but it’s definitely family.

Netball post for Term 3 week 1

I am so excited about our first week back at school and the most important thing yet is our first netball game back from our school holidays. I hope I am able to play 2/4 game or even 3/4 game. Straight after school when we finished doing the netball team rolls with Miss Va'afusuanga, then "me, Quasia, Leila, Lesieli and Ebony started walking down to the netball courts". A while later the other girls started walking down to the courts but they went the other way.

Trade & Enterprise



This presentation shows you what me and my class room mates have been working on for inquiry. We are listing things that we shall need or want through out the holidays. Things we bought at the shops from the holidays to this day. I hope you enjoy my little presentation of "trade & enterprise".


Explanation - How do people receive and spend money?

Title explanation
How do people receive and spend money? Some people get money from working at a job, or asking for a loan (a loan is when someone asks another person for some money just until they get paid) because they're broke, or by earning the money. Like for example let’s say that the teachers at Pt England school and all the other schools all around the world get paid $100.00 ph as their wages.
________________________________________________________

Introduction-Paragraph 1
How do they and who do they receive the money from? The money is a world wide currency, that is given to the government and, the government gives the money to the school, mechanics, hospital, and those other jobs as well. But just for example let me explain the amount of money the teachers get at school for teaching the students. Well first the schools give the money to the teachers after getting the money from the government. How does the government know the right amount of money that he/she needs to give to the schools all around New Zealand? The government knows the right amount of money to give to the schools, because the principles that are in charge of the school tells the government the amount of teachers that are at school every day. So really it only depends on the amount of teachers that are teaching at the school.

Paragraph 2
How do they receive/earn the money? Some well earned kids will probably get paid from they're parents for helping out with the chores around the house. Or from delivering newspapers to the houses. Or if your parents got paid over the amount of money that they usually have, and then they just give you money for being a good girl/boy. Or holding a garage sale selling all the old stuff that you don’t want any more, or delicious baking. And your parents probably get paid from working so hard at their job, some parents get paid from wages or by salary. “Salary” the boss at the work has to pay the people that work they're have to get paid $12.70 per hour, they are not aloud to pay them less then that. Because if they do then they are just ripping you off, and besides it against the law to do that. So just for example if I work from 8am until 9pm then I should get paid $177.80. ( so I will be working for at least 14 hours -(14 x 10 = 140) + (14 x 2 = 28) = 168 + (7.0 x .10 = 7.00) + (7.0 x .4 = 2.80) = 9.80 + 168 = $177.80. “Wages” is when you get you paid every day, or week because some people get paid when they work at school, so really all the do is show up at school from the beginning and leave a while after the kids leave. Then they choose to get paid every fort night, day or something. Because I wouldn’t really want to know the right amount of money all the school teachers get every year the work!

Paragraph 3
How do we/they spend their money and what do they spend it on? If I had $250.80 I would save $50.80 for me for what I want and give the rest of the money to my parents for the bored. food, things they and we need. Or some people will either surprise them by buying them a gift like a video game if they like it, some delicious bakery food or things from the diary, Mcdonalds, Karls JNR. Or previously thinking about what the person could do with the money. However do you think that person will spend it all on her/his self, share it out between his/her family for groceries and house things. Or buying some sweets for the kids, or even saving it up for when it is needed. Clothes, magazines anything that, that person admires.




Paragraph 4
What are some additional ways that I could receive money? I actually earn money by helping out around the house, by doing house chores. I am a good netball player but still making my way from being a pro (professional) netball player like my friends, I am still working on some things. So what I am trying to say here is that I am one of the “professional netball umpires, that referees the netball games at the A.M.I netball courts”. I was a newspaper deliverer, giving out news papers to the houses. I some time baby sit my cousins, nieces and nephews so I get paid as well.

The very first thing that I do with the money is give half of the money to my mum, or dad, so that they can spend it on anything that want. I buy sweets, chunk food for me but most of the time I buy myself some fruit with some ice-cream at the dairy so that when I get home I can make me and my family a scrumptious milk shake. Most of the time I will save it up in my bank account, so that when I need something then I can use it if needed. I do a lot of things with the money that I earn. The only different thing that I do with the money is buying clothes, heaps of food, and shoes at Sylvia part.

Music at Tech - Tamaki College Assignments

My Anzac Movie

video

This short film just shows you what we have been working on for term 2 as our animations. Sorry for the wait, I just didn't have much time to publish my work on my blog that quick but unless I did it as soon as I got to school. It is about the World War how people survived and didn't survive. It has a lot of sad bits in it, but you probably wouldn't get it because of the cool music.

Yr 7 and 8 Art Gallery

First week of school holidays

“Oh wow” I can’t believe it, because our school holidays have started so soon and fast too. For me it felt like I have only been at school for 2 weeks in term 2, and out of no where school holidays have started. Usually people are really happy and excited about the school holidays, because they get 2 weeks off from work. Well to be honest I was happy and no that happy, because I was scared that it would’ve rained most of the time.

I had a good feeling about our school holidays because this means that I get more family time with my family, get to post more stories about my amazing holidays. I had to do more netball training at my aunties and uncles house. On Friday straight after school when I arrived at home, me and my family went to my nanas house in panama, just to say hi and have a family meeting for Christmas.
To be continued

Wurst day ever

Saturday the 18th of July 2015 - 18.07.15


Have you ever had such a big puddle around your street or neighborhood? Well today is not a wonderful day to be playing out side because there was such a big storm, lightning, and rain happening last night. The puddle may not look that big in the photo but in person it sure does. It is just like the puddles that you have at school.

How did the puddle start? Well the thing that creates puddle is not only the rains fault. It is because you must have a deep whole where the whole that started, that is exactly our the puddle around my neighborhood started.  

It starts the way everything starts, it starts small and makes its way bigger and bigger. The rain started poring down and a while later it got stronger and stronger.  “Oh” and out of know where I heard a “bang and boom” it was the lightning and storm that was coming out of the dark grey clouds from the sky. And that's what created the puddle.

Why is it dirty? Well the dirt mustn't already been on the hard concrete and as people drove past on there cars, there wheels mustn't been diary as well. The mud is always following you around. But about 4-5 hours later a “boom, bang, clash” sound came out of know where beneath our feet. It was the forks and fireworks that was happening in G.I last night celebrating Maori week “Matariki light trail”. So the puddle was a humongous disappointment but happily the forks made us feel better, even if we didn’t get the chance to see it close up. It just matters that we didn’t miss it by going to sleep but I know that it was loud enough to wake the entire city even.

___________________________________Another version

“Wow” what such an enormous puddle, that has surrounded the neighborhood that these people live in. The color of the disgusting gigantic puddle is “brown, with a little touch of black”. From the looks of it people must been waling around it unless they have gumboots that are at least below your knees. But I know that everyone must be having such a dumb, boring, upsetting day today, because of the puddle that took over most of the space, unless there is a solution. Like some people going out in there cars, van, or trucks. Which is exactly what everyone would want to do if they didn’t want to stay in side feeling sad and lonely, but I would if there was time to have a little rest. So I thank the puddle and some people don’t thank it!

Family day out on the last day of school holidays

G.I Matariki Light Trail

17.07.15
Everyone who lives around G.I are lucky enough to have a night out at the “light trail”. Why did these wonderful people decided to do something so special and cool? Well this “light trail” isn’t that knew or old to us, because this happen only once a year, for 5 days one week. It is Maori language week and Matariki is the most important thing that always happens on Maori week.

Its just like when it is Samoan, Tongan, Cook Island and all those other countries week. They do a cultural performance for everyone or a Mihi telling and showing people who they are, where there from, and what they are like. For example “Ko lizara toku ingoa - My name is Lizara, No Glenn Iness toku kainganoho - I live in Glenn Iness, Tekau ma rua okau tau, I am 12 year old”.

Today is Friday the 17th 2015, and there is one day away from the “light trail”. And yes I did say that “the light trail starts and finishes 5 days at 6.30pm until midnight at 12.00”. But the only special thing about tomorrow which is Saturday the 18th, it is because the people who sets it up controls the entire thing lit up “forks”. I am so excited about tomorrow because me and my family, with my cousins and uncles will be going tomorrow to watch the “forks light trail”. Hopefully they have amazing and cool prizes that also go with the game and activities that will or should be held there.

My time at Pt England school for term 2

How was your time during term 2? For our topic at Pt England school we are learning and focusing on doing "Tinkering tools and toys". My 3 most favorite highlights for term 2 is enjoying my short amount of time with the year 7's, the teachers and all the other students at Pt England school. If I had 2 wishes one of them would be for me to stay at Pt England school, because I am so scared of college it just seems so hard and confusing. But everyone say'd "that college is hard especially on the first day, but you will enjoy it once you get to know everyone that likes having your company".

The 2nd highlight for term to, is beating my high scores in reading, writing, maths, Kapa Haka, helping the teachers, and even better P.E.S ( Pt England sports). I can not wait until holidays start, but I can not wait until term 3 starts for 2015. My very last highlight for 2015 term 2 is, finishing off my work properly, but still need to work on presenting and being confident enough to talk in front of everyone with out a glitch "because being shy is one of the things that I am really, really good at".

The 2 thing that I will improve in term 3 is, getting higher levels or scores in my tests, and competing in every sport and auditions.

Me and my groups Tinkering tools and Toys presentations

For our year 7 and 8 block project we have to focus and doing a well used project that can make our school better. Which is what we have been doing for the last past weeks, and then we would have to present it in front of the year 7 and 8 students for the last week for term 2. Me and my group have been working on creating a mascot with all the year year 8 students in it with the Pt England school logo.

Today we will be presenting in front of the younger children around our school, for them to see what we have been planning on for 3 to 4 weeks, but finished it in 2 to 3 days. There will be about 3 or 4 groups from each class room presenting in front every one. It goes from the year 1's up to come and see our amazing work. So like if their isn't enough time then we might show them tomorrow afternoon or after the school assembly.

Then their will be 8 students from each classroom out of 5 will be going to the classrooms to get the children to come around our little museum art gallery. We hope everyone who have seen it already or is still to come and enjoy our projects have had so much fun seeing our creations. If you are still waiting to come and see our creations then you are in for a treat. Hopefully you will all enjoy it especially on the 2 last days of term 2. Isn't this a nice way to end term 2.

PES should not have a school uniform

PES should not have a school uniform:
What do you think Pt England school should do, from deciding if we should have school uniform or not? I agree that we should not have school uniform, because it saves the people’s time who creates them for us at Pt England school. And if we don’t have school uniform then it saves us from paying money to the school, when we can just wear the clothes that we already have. our mufti clothes.


But there's another twist. Because the money that we pay the school to buy our uniform helps our school save up money for things that are needed. The children can look the exact same instead of looking O.T.L (only the lonely). Ever since weave continued wearing school uniform everyone enjoyed wearing jackets, jumpers, culottes, track-pants and all these amazing clothings that have been created by these amazing people.


If Pt England school students don’t have proper uniform, which is what we call “not wearing it with pride”. Then everyone will start wearing mufti then everyone will look really odd. I agree that Pt England school shouldn't have to wear uniform in school. Because if we don’t have school uniform then we would have to get a “dress pass from Mr Jacobson”. It can also save people from washing their uniform and waiting for them to dry in just 2 days, because sometimes it takes longer to wash and dry or you might loose your uniform and then you would have to buy more uniforms for yourself.

So I would just like wear mufti instead of wearing our school uniform. because most of the time I can’t find my jacket and culottes. So I just go to school wearing my school T-shirt and shorts, but it is so cold because I can’t find my jacket so I just wear a mufti jumper.

My home work - Time tables

This afternoon I have been working on doing and focusing on with my home work. Which is to do some time tables from 1 to 12. Here is the example that I have just done down the bottom of my writing that you are now reading.  Hopefully you are practising on doing your maths home work of time tables. “Just like me”! It took me about 47.28 seconds to do it. Can you beat my time?
