My Sailing Experience! - Tyrah

On the 10th of May, the seniors of our school went sailing at Okahu Bay.  It was fascinating to learn how to steer a boat with a rudder and how to control the sail with a rope. The funny thing that happened to me while I was at sea was falling out of the boat and trying to get back in. Thanks to St Johns Rotary and Sailing NZ, we wouldn't have experienced this opportunity that has been given to us. And thanks for making our day special. My classmates, friends and I had lots of fun sailing. Especially falling out of the boat into the cold, freezing water! 



Diary Entry - Tyrah

 Dear Diary,

This girl made my day! She's not as bad as she looked. Having the same, damp yellow umbrella my father had meant the world to me. While the wind whooshed past my window, rain drops dripped down from the gutter I looked into her eyes. With cobwebs linking up with the cupboard and dust lying upon the window sill, she looked like the most happiest girl on Earth.

Diary Entry

 This is a diary entry which I have written in response to a short animated movie we're studying for literature.   

Heavy furniture scraping across the floor. Lots of pushing and shoving. Shouting and screaming. Hoping some day, I'll be out of this mess that my parents have made. Not knowing what they know... What's best for me...?

Clay Value - Tyrah

Today we discussed our values. We had to dig deep and think hard about what really counts.
I chose flowers as something I value because it is one of God's creation. We created our value in clay so we could think about it more and what it means to us personally.

Stations of the cross - Tyrah

On Holy Thursday, we performed a special event that happened back in Jesus' time. We call it "The Stations of the Cross." We had roles to play. The role I played, was being one of Veronica's (Asinate) friends. Only Catholic or religious schools like ours, perform this event. Ever since I was 5, I remember correctly and well that seniors like us have acted in this same act. I've always wanted to play a role in it. It seemed very fun and interesting to play one of the roles and wear the olden day's clothes. Here are some pictures that I like and some that I am in.
