Taekwondo

This week in Taekwondo I learned a new kick called the scissor kick, It also goes with the self defence block.
There are five Tenants that Mrs Robinson taught us Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, Indomitable Spirit.

These past few weeks in Taekwondo was tiring and hard especially learning the new scissor kick when you have to jump up high and kick.

Room 7 had two practices of the assembly we were having technical difficulties.Until the bell rang !.I played a very important part in the assembly I was the announcer.

When Ofa started us off with a prayer I was getting very nervous,Then Dorothy ended us with a bible reading,I was getting even more scared Angelica said, “Its alright I'm scared to we can do it”.

The Intro from the news came on and then up goes the paper on with the glasses and were on live.Angelica says the first part then Siliva then me.I start to get nervous and I muck up a little but I start getting use to sitting up in front of the whole school and talking.

Then the videos go onto the screen and then all the classes show up.Finally its time for room7 the kings of rap time to go up and start our rap.Then the song.Mr Coakley was called up to give out the certificates.Then Mrs Pole called out the caught being goods.Mr Coakley stands up and says a few notices, The two girls Ofa and Dorothy say a few more words.

Blood Brothers

On Thursday, after morning tea the year 7 people in room 7 and one person from room 6 went to Selwyn to watch the Blood Brothers. When we got to Selwyn we had to wait a little while the performers get ready and in their places. We finally get into the theater Mrs Glesson says for us to go to the bathroom because it will take quite a while.

I walked inside the theater. It felt a bit cold. Kohimarama school comes in and joins us to watch the show. Then the show begins and I start to have butterflies. People started singing I was getting a bit scared the singing was very loud to my ears, my ears were about to blow up. When the singing was finished the real action started.


The lights turn off and the narrator walks in looking very scary I was holding on tight to the chair. Then he speaks in an Irish low voice. In 1960 a woman Mrs Johnstone was a poor lady with her family she couldn’t pay any bills her husband walks away from her to another lady.

Later on Mrs Johnstone takes a job as a cleaner for a rich couple Mr and Mrs Lyons. She finds out that she is pregnant with twins but she can't afford to have two other children. Mrs Lyons really wants to have a baby but it can't happen. Mrs Lyons has an idea !. Because Mrs Johnstone can not afford to have another two Mrs Lyons suggests that Mrs Johnstone gives one of the babies to Mrs Lyons. Mrs Lyons picks on Mrs Johnstone and says if the twins find out they are brothers bad things will come to you !!.


Seven years later Mickey the son of Mrs Johnstone meets Edward the other twin but yet they both don’t know they are twins and they become friends and while their talking Edward would say something and Mickey says the same thing like their birthday. Soon the two friends become blood brothers.


Mrs Lyons is worried about Edward being friends with Mickey. She wants to move her family far away from Mickey and his family.

1967 Mickey's family move to the inner city slum area of Liverpool to a new house in the town of Skelmersdale.

The acting stops and I thought it was over but they were just taking a break till the next act.


ACT 2

1974 Eddie and Mickey are now 14 years old, they bump into each other and become friends again

Four years later Eddie leaves for university but not before encouraging Mickey to ask out Linda. During Eddie’s absence around the turn of the 1980’s Mickey is made redundant from his factory job. Mickey soon finds out that Lind is pregnant and they decide to get married.

Eddie comes back for christmas ready to have a party and to have fun, but Mickey realizes that they are different. Mickey is poor he needs money. Mickey assists his brother Sammy in a robbery that goes wrong and becomes to a murder committed by Sammy. He is put in prison for seven years. Soon Mickey starts taking anti depressants and turns from Linda. She is very worried about Mickey and soon she meets up with Eddie. Eddie's mum sees them together and tells Mickey about it. Mickey is angry over Eddie and Linda’s innocent affair confronts Eddie.

Mickey is about to shoot Eddie and Mrs Johnstone tells the two brothers the truth. Mickey doesn't care about Eddie anymore he points the gun right to his chest. Mickey shoots Eddie accidentally killing him then the police shoots Mickey. Mrs Lyons knew something like this would happen and the narrator whether the class was more to blame?.

Opening Mass

On Friday of the second week of the term, it was the first mass for the school year 2012. It’s a really special occasion for St Pius X.

There were a lot of parents and grandparents at our mass.

The teachers took up the offertory . Lavinia was part of the offertory to represent the students of Saint Pius. It was really lovely to see all the teachers with a student doing it together.

The first reading in the mass reminded me not to be lazy. Everyone need to work hard to get something. This will be my goal for the year.
I will do my best in all my learning. It was a great start for the year.

Tennis

This morning was an exciting morning. After line up Room7 hurried to the tennis court because Room7 was playing kiwi sports tennis. Our instructors name was Marcel. Room7 sat on the ground and Marcel was talking to us about tennis and how the tennis rackets and the balls are new and not to hit anything but the ball.

Marcel asked the girls to grab a tennis racket and a ball .I ran to get a ball and a tennis racket. Then I ran to the right side of the court. I was really excited to learn how to play tennis. The girls went to the right side of the courts and the boys went to the left. The instructor, Marcel said to put the racket on the ground and pick it up like a frying pan with four your four fingers on the bottom and your thumb on the top.

Marcel showed us a few warm ups, how to bounce the ball on the racket, and roll the ball side to side I thought it was easy. Marcel said, “ line up and get a partner” then we split the partner went to one side and the other went to the other side. One partner put the ball behind them and held the tennis racket the other had a ball. We then just bounce the ball and just hit the ball.

Later we got to play King of the Court. The people at each net lined up in one line. Marcel showed us how to play. The first one in line went to the other side and we played real tennis !.It was my first time play tennis. I was running from side to side. I had a lot of fun playing tennis for the first time.
