Year 8 Camp 2012

“ Camp Already “ I said as I woke up to excitement . It was a great day to go camp . The only concerns was the weather . It was said that it would be showers all week .

“ All aboard “ we entered the bus for a looonng drive  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Finally we arrived , and was pumped to explore the campus . First we enjoyed our selv’s on the playground . 

And then gathered in to be told instruction’s . We collected our gear and placed it in our cabin’s and got ready to go on our “HUUUGE MOUNTAIN WALK !!! “  Jephte , Matthew T , Kaiden and I  , were running down the mountain knowing we could brake a bone , fall down hills , smash into tree’s and cause tremendous damage . But we still did it like Ninjas .

After that 3 hour !!! Bush walk , we got ready for a relaxing swim . Then had a wonderful lunch and dinner then got prepared to watch a movie . After a long day we wet off to bed and had a great night .

On the last day of Camp , we went to Waingaro Hot Springs . It was my favourite part of Camp . There was a pool were we could bomb , and there was a hydro slide . The hydro slide was cool when you had a mat because it would go a lot more faster and you would jump and rock side to side . My face was eager for speed and action and it delivered when i was on the slide . As I went down the slide the water ran fast up my nose and it caused damage to my throat but i was alright .

My Highlight of camp was being together with my friends and sharing great memories and the hydro slide . I wish I could have another camp so we could make new memories !

The Whitening Snows Of Venerable Elder. Charles F Goldie .

The reason why I chose this specific painting , painted by Charles Fredrick Goldie,  was because  I thought it would be a difficult challenge to draw it and that I liked how the man’s facial really brought out his feelings . The year this painting was produced was 1916  , so this year , the painting is 96 years old .The name of the painting is called The Whitening Snows Of Venerable Elder.  What this painting looks like to me is , that he is thinking about the past and something really bad might have occurred.  

Charles Fredrick Goldie .

Charles Fredrick Goldie was born on October 20th . As a kid he was brought up by his mother and father. He was raised 7 other siblings including himself. 8 KIDS ! They were a poor family and David Goldie and Maria Parkington were struggling to feed and bring up their kids.

This Term For Extension we were given instructions to search for a painting and then craft it on hyperstudio . The theme for the term was art . We all selected our painting and drew them and put it up for a expo at school .

I liked my painting because i spent a lot of time on it , and it show's how much passion in it

Basket Ball

It has been three weeks since Term 3 started , and it has been great .  To enhance our Term , we have been learning the important skills of Basket Ball .  

Our previous session was good.  But yesterday was awesome. First objective of the lesson was to line up.  Our allies room 20 also came along to join us .

The instructor’s Tie and Brooke explained to us about the game that we were going to play for our warm up.  This game was called “Red Light , Green Light .“ To begin, they told us the rules . we had to run to the other side of the court with out getting the calls incorrect.  One of them would call green light . That means Go and as you think red would be stop. So we started and they tricked us straight away. Half way through I was almost there and was played because I ran we he said green and then I was back to the start. At the end of the game my friend Havea won .

Now we started to get serious and play a few games.  10 passes . My team won and then we lost. Then we did several drills. Dribbling , ball skills shooting and passes.!

That's was basketball this week . I wonder what holds for next week.?
