Boo at the Zoo

On Thursday we were going the zoo. We had to go to the hall first because we had to put on our name tags, so that people would know who we were, if we got lost.

St Pius was excited because we were going to the zoo. In our bus was Room 4, Room 5 and Room 6.

When we got there, we were told to sit down for information. The first place we went to was the kiwis but I was afraid, so we went to see the giraffes and zebras. The zebra babies looked Cute.

We then went to go see the lion. There were two males and three females. They were fighting.

After that we had morning tea. I had a steak and pie for morning tea. It was delicious. We were eating in front of the elephants.

After morning tea we went to see the monkeys. Most of them were sleeping. One or two were awake. Then we went to see the tigers. One of the tigers was playing with a ball. Then the tiger popped the ball.

After that our group went to kid’s zone. We were playing for about five minutes. We then had to go back to school, because it was home time. Some of us on the bus were sleeping. We were mostly tired but it was a fun day at the zoo.

Flim Festival

The buses had arrived. We had waited a long time.
We were on our way to Sylvia Park. I was sitting next to Sefesi. We were looking out the window at all the people and the cars.

Finally we arrived and hopped off the bus.
We were so happy to be out of school.
We walked in to Hoyts cinemas, and walked in to the Extreme Screen. On our way to our seats we saw our presenters. They were so nervous.

The movies started and our seats were so cosy.
Movie after movie, Presenter after Presenter and then finally Saint Pius. We cheered and cheered.

We had so much fun and what a great time it was!

The Zoo Trip

On Thursday 21st October 2010 St. Pius X students were invited to go to the zoo. We all had to pay $6.00 to go. We all had to go in groups. I went in Maria Tai’s group.

Next we all waited patiently in rows for the bus to turn up. Julia and I hopped onto the bus and sat together with Melefusi and Lose. We got there at last. We all hopped off the bus and walked toward the entrance.While we all waited, we were shivering and talking to each other.

The first animals I liked looking at, were the sea-otters swimming. They looked so cute when they got out of the water.

The second thing I liked most, were the cheetahs. They were running so fast like wild cats.

When we got back from the Auckland Zoo nearly everyone on the bus was sleeping, but we were alright. I felt so happy getting out of the soaking rain and to get home safe and sound.

Film Festival

On 11 November 2010 we went to the Film Festival to watch other schools films. The first film was from Tamaki Intermediate School. Room 7 was second. Next was Point England. The movies were frozen.

Then the manager said, “We will start over again. Then everyone said,” Yes! Yes! Yes! We carried on watching the next movies.

My Favourite Film was, “Boy” It was funny. It was cool. I Love it. I wish I could watch it again, but we had to turn it off because everyone was noisy. I still want to watch it again.

Everyone was on the bus. They made a big noise. Everyone was tired from our movies and we enjoyed our day.

Baby Sam

On a Thursday afternoon after icing the cup cakes, I got dressed into my best clothes. After dinner we all drove down to Aulthop village lodge. (Aulthop village is a retirement village were my nana lives)
We all helped to put all the food on the tables and started making the punch and the ice water.
When every thing was ready my Grandpa and my aunties Grandpa Roy arrived. Once everyone was there the book launch started.
First up on stage was my sister and my Samoan dance. It was fun! Once that had finished, my Aunty Lizzy (the author of the book) got up and said her speech.
Once she had finished her speech a lady sang a song named “From the Angels”. After she sang that beautiful song, my cousins “Jack” and “Sally” read out Baby Sam. After performing to a song called “I am a Friend of God” it was time for a snack. When everything was packed we all drove home.

On the 11th November 2010 the St. Pius children were all excited to go to Sylvia Park to see the St. Pius film stars on the Extreme Screen.

As we travelled in the bus, we went over heaps of bumps and past houses that we knew.
When we got to Sylvia Park, we went up the stairs and into the movie theatre. We waited patiently as we stood in our three groups.

Later we had to wait patiently for the Schools to take their seats . We still had to remain in our three groups.

When I was about to sit down, Mrs Gleeson said, “Catherine and Genevieve you two girls come and sit down here, so that there is more space for you girls”. As the movie started, I got excited I was getting my self comfortable.

My favourite movies was from Tamaki College and St. Pius. The St. Pius had the most cheers and everyone had an enjoyable day, even though it was our first time.
