Future Aspirations 2

Today on Wednesday the whole seniors were in the street so we could hear some of the people who were young and had a good dream. First of all we had to make sure the place was cleared and make sure the shelves were moved. After that we sat down on on our mat and that's when the visitors came in.

First was Mr Patterson, and he introduced himself. Then Mr Patterson introduced the other visitors to our whanau. There names were Anthony Samuels, Amelia, Paula and another person but he didn't say a speech. The visitors were going to have a turn having a speech and also gave us some messages that would help us in the future.

Anthony’s story was about being an actor on What Now, and also owning his own company. Second was Paula and his story was about when he was young but quite tall. Paula told us that he joined the swimming team because he was quite good at swimming. But Paula actually used a secret weapon which was his tall legs. When it came to the race he nearly drowned because the pool was too deep.

Last was Amelia and she talked to us about how her friends thought that she couldn't make it in anything, But then she discovered that she could do fashion. That was all of the stories of the future aspirations people who came in to talk to us about. Then the visitors told us there messages, and first was Anthony s message which was your past does not have to determine your future. Paula’s message was to keep trying. Last was Amelia's which was believe you can do it believe you know it and believe you deserve it I think.

And that was the end of all of there speech. We ended it with our school song which was Mihi Mairai.

Whanau Tangle pattern

If you have two classes who have joined together but you need something that can make people realize that you have joined together, then a whanau tangle pattern is what you need. I will tell you how to make one.

First you need to make a pattern on the paper that has been outlined with a pen or colouring pen. After everyone has done that, you then have to make a celtic knot. The celtic knot is knot that has no beginning or end cause it is a whole group. To do the celtic knot you need to do a weaving that goes under and over.

After you have done that you should have your own whanau tangle pattern that you created with others. When we first did it I felt like it was going to be hard to make the tangle pattern. Because we don’t have any instructions to tell us, so we made up our own.

That is the best activity to do if you wanted to join two classes together cause they also have there own pattern that they created, don’t remember that. It would always be different because thats what some of us are. I hope you enjoy making your own whanau tangle pattern with everyone.
