Camp Adair

At camp there was one particular thing i really liked ,was when we had to build a raft. I found it challenging working with team mates. It was fun because we learnt how to build a raft and what to do if we were lost in the middle of the sea. To be honest i didn't really wanna go to camp ,but i should of just said thanks for the opportunity.  With building the raft i just loved how we worked as a team and knew what we were doing. I loved the person who was teaching us how to build it ,he was very nice. For a thought there i think camp was average i don't really like leaving home ,but anyways it was pretty fun. My highlights were camp item that was the best part for entertainment and laughter. It challenging for me to sleep near people and leaving my stuff there thinking that someone will take some of my clothes. For me as a student of Tamaki i think that i begun to learn about different things and to  Conquer my fears. The year nines for next should bring more clothes due to water activities and raining days ,they should remember to bring covered shoes and a hat for safety reasons.

The Story Of Tamaki Makaurau (in my own Words)

         The Story of Tamaki Makaurau 
                  Tamaki Makaurau is the Maori name for Auckland.

Long ago there once lived some people called the Patupaiarehe. But they did not get along so to avoid getting into fights they splitted apart. One of the tribes (Iwi) lived in Hunua ranges down south and the other tribe lived on the other side out west on the Waitakere ranges ,so they were out of each others way. On some nights two young members from the tribes will often play a game. They would sneak out and race quietly to the other (iwi) to get a token and show there friends they been there. On one night Hui (Waitakere son) came home with nothing in his hands ,the other youngsters started teasing him for not coming home with nothing. So the next night Hui ran again but didn't return home with the rest of the boys ,so they became upset and angry and telling each other they should of take,n, good care of him. When the rangatira found out that Hui didn't return home with his fellow friends he was angry and demanded war to happen but so as they saw to people walking towards them it was Hui holding a young beautiful. So instead of bringing back a token he brought her. Hui's father was delighted and begun to ask questions he ask what was her name ,she replied 'I am Wairere the daughter of Hunua. When the chief heard that his daughter was over at the Waitakere ranges they came marching down hard at Waitakere. So Waitakere took magic out of the earth and cast over them and they began to fall down one by one. After he open the hole underneath the ground the god of volcanoes and earthquakes Appeared and was angry at Waitakere. And that's the story of Tamaki Makaurau.

Rise Values

Responsibility=Having the Responsibility to get to class on time and stop marking around.
Integrity=Being honest on why you were late to class.
Success=Having the purpose of why you were late to class and having a good excuse.
Respect=Being respectful to teacher and making sure your there early waiting to be let in.

How should we use our rise values in class?
We should show that we care about our learning and about why teachers are here to teach us. We should show what's the purpose about our learning.

Why should we show rise values in class?
So that the teacher can give us higher marks. And that we can focus and strive higher on our learning.

Why do you think some students find it difficult to maintain these values?  I think cause its just how they act at home they dont wanna learn at school.
