Narrative Writing

Once upon a time there was a boy named Caleb, he had a next door neighbor, she was a girl Caleb liked her but he was afraid to tell her, her name is called Juliette but Caleb and the other kids from school called her Julie for short, Caleb and Julie were best friends.

They told their parents that they were going camp which was in the forest, they accepted it and said that they could go. It was a long walk, it was getting dark so they set up their tents and their other camp stuff. Caleb was tired so he went to sleep but his best friend Julie was still awake looking up at the sky singing twinkle twinkle little star.

Then suddenly Caleb was annoyed by her singing and said, “Shhhhhh i'm trying to sleep here.” Julie grabbed her ukulele and went into the dark and started to sing her favourite song. Then Caleb turned around and said, ‘Do me a favour please, go to sleep” she ignored me and continued to sing. I was furiously cross with Julie, after she sang and came back Caleb asked, “may I borrow your ukulele?” She said yes then Julie handed it over to Caleb then he threw it into the fire. She was so upset, Caleb didn’t care cause he was so tired. He couldn't go to sleep because of her crying He felt worried about her. So he said i'm really sorry i was tired i'll buy you a new ukulele tomorrow Jullie smiled and said promise then Caleb said Promise. The End

Book Day

Book Day.
Today St Pius X School came as a characters in our favourite book.. The reason why we came in our character of our favourite book is because it was a way of enjoying reading. I came and I was embarrasses because nearly the whole class had costumes . But Miss Tui had some. so some of us choose and put it on. We went to the hall for a Duffy assembly. Each class had to go up and say what character we are and from what book.   

Today was a Amazing day because almost everybody came in their favorite character's. My favorite part of the day was when we had to pick what to wear. :)  

Trip to the Cathedral

Trip to the Cathedral
On Friday the 1st of July St. Pius X School went on a trip to the St Patrick’s Cathedral. We traveled there by bus. We went to the Cathedral because it was the year mercy and we went on a pilgrimage journey which is a journey of Faith and Mercy..

Once we arrived  we waited outside the Cathedral then we walked into the door of mercy which the bishop had blessed.. We walked inside and we touched the holy water and blessed ourselves, and genuflected then went to sit down..

After that Fr Larry started singing and coming up to the Altar which was the main place where all priests stays. Later on the mass kept on going until after communion. Later on Mrs Tui told us to sing a song while the Parish members were going up for Communion, we had to sing bread broken, wine shared.

Later on we all had to go to the altar so we can take a school photos. After that Fr Larry gave us a little tour around the church, the first thing he told us were the Stained Glass Windows. On the Stained Windows there was a picture of Jesus and Mary on the day of Assumption.

Meanwhile Mrs Tui told us that we can go for morning tea which will be held in the Parish Hall. After morning we had to come back to school so we can go back to school. We had the most exciting day. We wish we could go back sometimes. 


Year 8 Retreat

Retreat was very fun and cool. I wish I could go there once again. My favourite thing we did there is going to the chapel to Pray,trying to make Noah’s art with 2 rocks on it and the last favorite is sleeping with our room partners and watching kid president. The year 8 sure had an fun and learned a lot by being awesome time and I wish me and the yr 8 went Back again :) .  


My whole school went on a trip to the Ruapotaka Marae. We walked there because it was not far. When we finally got there this lady from the Marae was calling us in Maori and then Ana-Lei replied back in Maori because she was representing our school. We stayed at the marae till we had to go to Technology. We had so much fun making new stuff and learning new Maori songs. I wish we could go there again sometime.
