Our task was to create a Timeline throughout our years in Saint Pius X School. I have been in Saint Pius X School since 2007. It is coming to the end of the year, and we still have to prepare for much more. I have arranged my year photos from 2007 up to 2015. I have also arranged photos of my last year. I hope you enjoy :-)

On Friday 6th November 30 of our students including myself here are St Pius X Catholic School had the privilege to represent our school, at our very first Cluster Culture Festival. We had 4 different ethnicity groups including : Samoan, Tongan , Cook Island , and Maori.
We were all united with the Liturgical Dance. We told the story of our school by dance. Our story commenced when the Holy Faith Sisters arrived into New Zealand and started our school. This is when the Maori people arrived. Our Maori Group performed beautifully. It was a great start to the dance. The dance then concludes onto the Cook Island group (performed by Aurora), The Samoan group, and ends off with the Tongan.
We were all reunited with the Liturgical Dance. I was relived and happy that it was over. All of our hard work and late practises paid off. At first I was definitely anxious. I felt proud of everyone including myself. After performing we all gathered together and watched the other schools perform. I was exhausted and could not believe that it was over.
The day of Sailing had finally arrived. We were lucky to receive this grant of having two days of sailing. Since the sailing activity could only take up to 12 people, my class was split into two groups. Fortunately I was in the first group. We had 3 hours of straight sailing. The thought of it sent shivers down my spine.
“Is everyone here Room 7 ?” inquired Mrs Tui. “ No not everyone has arrived” I answered . Horror was painted onto her face. “ We will be going very soon!” cried Mrs Tui. I was as worried as a convicted murderer. “ Everyone hop into the car” announced Mrs Tui. I slowly dragged myself into the car, and rolled away.
“I can’t wait!” yelled Seuati. I smiled brightly pretending to act happy. Judging by his tone he seemed somewhat animated. “Whoa these boats are really small!” I thought to myself. For the half a hour we got prepared and learned about the yachts. Once we had finished we released the yachts into the water and headed off. “ Hold on Aurora, Be careful!” I shrieked.
“Look, Justin’s boat flipped over!” I wailed. We all laughed in response of the incident. “Jump in Sonya” urged Aurora. I was getting ready to run away. “ Come it’s not too bad!” she squealed with frustration. I slowing plodded myself on the platform. Off I went. The wind wasn't too heavy. I was eager to reach the deadline, so I went as fast as I could.
“I think that I am going to sink” I thought as I gradually continue. “ I have to get this water out of my boat immediately” I thought to myself. I sigh heavily wishing I’d went with Aurora. “ You have to get the water out as fast as you can!” shouted Reuben as I drifted off. I could feel my face slowly shutting down. “You can do this!” I tried my best to be strong and concentrate . “ You made it!” yelled Aurora as I pulled onto the beach.
Before we could have our lunch, we had to get changed. After getting changed we had our lunch. All of the Sailing had made me ravenous. “ I wish we could stay for longer” I sighed as we drove off.

This morning we had talked about the choices that we make. We talked about how it can affect other people, And how it makes a big impact on our lives. Our task was to display the vocabulary we had learnt in a creative way. I hope you learn something from my poster:)

Dear Almighty Father
I thank you for watching over my family and close friends. I also thank you for guiding me in making the right choice. I ask you to watch over my Grandfather in your heavenly kingdom. I also ask you to watch over my uncle.

This morning we had a on-line Math test which is called PAT. At first I felt uneasy and scared. I was not looking forward to it. I started to get familiar with the questions. I felt unsure in my answers. There were some questions that I didn't know, but I didn't let that stop me. If I’d reached a question that was unknown to me, I would pick a answer which I thought was the best. I am not so confident, but I tried my best.
