My Final Post for 2015

We've come to the end of our journey at Saint Pius X Catholic School.  Our journey's  here at Saint Pius X has been challenging because We've faced difficult tasks but managed to get through it.  Our role this year especially was to   my our principle, teachers and students who need help and most importantly is to become good role models to our younger  generation in Saint Pius X. We will always treasure my time here at Saint Pius. Here is a short film of the year 8's. Farewell SPX

My Best Writing 2015 - Anthony

Sailing at Kohimarama Beach
The day of  sailing had finally arrived. My class went together with Room 6. They got the chance to take part in sailing as well. I was very excited.  Once we arrived  a couple of yachts were lined up. Once Reuben had  finished describing how the yacht works, we got into pairs. Luckily my partner was  Christopher. We each grabbed  a yacht and dragged  to the shore .     

Then we prepared the yachts for the sea.  The ocean  seemed dangerous. I jumped into the boat and started sailing to the point. At first it  was scary but it slowly got better.  I slowed down to wait for the others because I was ahead of them. So I waited and waited until Seuati catched up so then I started to sail again.
Then when I got back to the shore, Christopher went. I saw him struggling so I encouraged  him.  My legs were cold so I sat down and covered it  with sand until chris came back. I saw chris ahead of them when they returned back. It was exciting because when chris came back we were allowed to go together .

Finally Reben said we are done. Then we got changed and settled down and Reben gave us a certificate.  

My Best piece of writing 2015 - Folauhola

On Thursday morning my class had the opportunity to participate in sailing. We were divided into 2 groups. The first group left from school at 9:00am. The second group had to met us at Kohimarama Beach at 12pm. Sailing was at Kohimarama, near the yacht club.

Most of my class had never been sailing before. Our transport was the Sacred Heart Van.  There were 12 students who were in group 1. We finally made it to the yacht club. I couldn't wait any longer, so I grabbed my gear and jumped off the van. We met our instructor Reuben.

6 sailing boats had caught my eye. Our first task was to  set up the yacht.  We were paired up and each one of us had to chose a yacht. Before we could start, we had to put on our safety gear, to keep us safe. We dragged our sailing boat down the path walk and into the beach. The girls were up first to sail.

We had to sail to the tilly that was anchored to the sea floor, that area was the deepest. After coming last, I was enjoying. My partner and I took turn and it was turning out great, until we went together. When we reached to the deep side, my side was facing downwards to the water and water was coming into our boat. We were both scared and nervous that our boat would flip over.

It’s was too windy and we couldn't control our boat so we let it go and all of sudden we were in the sea. The sea was deep and I was nervous because usually when I’m at the beach my feets are always on the ground. Luckily Reuben came with his boat and told us how to flip over the boat.

It was time to say goodbye. I wasn't ready to stop, I wanted more. By the time we started  packing our gear, we met the second group who made it to the yacht club just in time.
