This term we have been learning about mascots. It had to have an iconic figure from New Zealand. We pretended that our mascot will be the next representative mascot for the next commonwealth games for New Zealand.

My Mascots name is Kaiwhakaora O Pounamu. The english translation of this word “Kaiwhakaora O Pounamu” Is Savior of greenstone. I have chosen this name because Pounamu is sacred and is a treasure to the Maori culture. And L and P bottle thrusters with kiwi fruit shoulder armour. And on the chest a Pounamu arc reactor.

Most crime in the world is based on drugs. At the life ed caravan we are learning about different types drugs and what they do to you. Our teacher’s name in the caravan was Lynn she taught us about the importance of not using drugs. We also learnt about code names for drugs

I learnt that marijuana is a gateway drug. A gateway drug is a drug that most people start out on.

Astria Countdown to impact

The Yr 7/8 extension group are testing a new game called Astria Countdown to impact. The most difficult part of the game was the key code. I found the clues easy because the weren't very hard to find. I found all the clues and unlocked the key code. Tomorrows session will be easy because we already know what to do.
