Rainbows End Night Rides

On Saturday night me and my siblings went to Rainbows End. We arrived at 6:00pm, it was still morning when we first arrived there. The theme of our clothes were black and white, I was filled with excitement, and it was my first time going to Rainbows End. Me and my sisters rode ten rides in 5 hours, do you think that is even possible. Well I think so and it was very enjoyable for all of us.  When it was getting late we got ready to go one last ride and it was the stratosfear. I felt butterflies in my tummy and my legs were shaking. So when the man called us to come in and take a seat, I couldn't really feel butterflies in my tummy anymore. Then I was fill with confident and boy was to scary when we went upside down, it was like I was off my seat. So when my sisters went again I took a video of them screaming as if they were going to fall off. The rides that we went on was Corkscrew Coaster, Scorpion Karts, Family Karts, Log Flume, Invader, Power Surge, Bumper Boats, Fearfall, Gold Rush, Motion Master. Those are the ten rides that we went on.

Room 12 Manaiakalani 2017 Film

Yesterday we went to Sylvia Park to present our schools film. Our film was based on rugby values, we were very good at presenting our school. Me and Vaimoana were presenters from Ruapotaka school. We had to present our movie in three different sessions. It was very hard to get to the other sessions because we didn't really know where we were suppose to go. So we ran the whole time till Vaimoana found where we had to present. We were 5th to go up and present in the first session, and in the 2nd session we were 5th up. So the last we were 8th one that we presented in was for Tamaki college. It was a busy day for us and me and Vaimoana were very happy when it was time to go back to school. I gave five autographs and eight photographs to people that I knew.

My Trip To Australia During The Holidays

In the two week holidays I jumped on a plain and went to Australia. At first I was surprised because it was my second time going to Australia. I was filled with excitement and I felt emotional, because that would mean that I wasn't going to spend a lot of time in New Zealand for the holidays. The city that I arrived in was Sydney. My mum called my Aunty to come and pick us up. As soon as I saw my cousin I burst into tears. I haven't seen him in two years, also my family always say that we looked a like so they called us the cousin twins. I have no idea what that meant but I just went with it. So when we drove to my Auntie's house a kangaroo jumped in front of the car. I was surprised but then I got use to it because it happens sometimes. When I walked into the house I felt so hot because it was 45 degrees. We enjoy our meal and then me and my cousin stay up all night so that we can sneak back into the kitchen, and eat the leftover K.F.C. that was covered on the table. We stayed in Australia for two weeks, and then we came back to New Zealand.

Call to change New Zealand national bird

A seabird conservation group is calling for a bird that can actually fly to replace the kiwi as the country’s national symbol. Its co-founder Chris Gaskin is throwing his support behind the Buller’s shearwater, also known as the rako, to be the new national trademark. Having a seabird as a national bird is far more representative of who we are and that is what makes us New Zealanders. Many New Zealanders feel a connection to the word kiwi and that would be hard to change. I think that we should still go by the name of a kiwi, also that is what we are known for all around the world.

Cross-country

Today we ran down Tripoli Road and through Hinaki and then up Torino. I had a good ran when we were doing our daily fitness routine. But I also ran with my friends and I ran mostly with Mary. She always encourages me to keep on going and to never stop. So I kept running and then she past me and I then had to run by myself. I did a lot of running and I swaeted a lot, I also kept running even though Mary wasn't there to tell me to keep running. When it was the last round I ran my hardest and I made it before the fittest boys in my classroom and that was Min Zin and Tamote Jnr. In the end I had a lot of fun and I did well on my own.

Government's $3m plan to save critically endangered sea lions

Their are people in New Zealand, that can give in money so that they can save the endangered sea lions. The sea lions live in New Zealand and they are endangered because their are not that many sea lions that live in New Zealand. Their's about 12,000 sea lions that are remaining in New Zealand. Nearly all of them breed on Campbell and Auckland islands, and there are small populations on the lower South Island and Stewart Island. Also the Government ministers say that this plan will go on for about five years. I think that this is very good because they are helping the sea lions of New Zealand.

🐶Wow, you're lost!': Invercargill farmer rescues stranded seal pup from paddock🐶

One day there was this farmer that went out to his paddocks on Monday morning. He went to see if there were any baby lambs but he found a baby seal pup instead. He was then startled and he tried to look after it and keep it safe. When Dee Knapp first saw the little seal pup, he thought that it was a bird that had broken it's wing. After he reported the stranded sea pup to the newshub people, and he told them "Wow, mate, your lost." Then he told newhub that, he had never come across it before. Also there was no mum to been seen and with the sea around 10km away. Mr Knapp said that he thinks that the baby seal has been travelling for days. He then did some research and he picked it up in a blanket. He also feed it some fish and after it had a little rest he went and set it free in the water. Mr knapp could have faced 250,000  fine for picking up the baby seal. But his heart was in the right place and he did the right thing. He also knew that if he had left it out there on it's own it could have not saved. With all thoughts dogs and other animals out there.
