Aroha - Paul


Her hair blows in the wind, her free spirit flows letting the negativity go. Her name is Aroha meaning love. 

But everyday is not a regular day, the screams in her head. The offensive  jokes that she cannot cope with but she always stay silent, sometimes silence is violence.  She's  forced to deal with what she feels. She drowns in sorrow some times Aroha want to die and never come back tommorow.

Aroha has a friend meetup, they all walk to their favourite spot, peaceful day with the birds singing, their free spirit flys like kites, they both shine bright and they share their light and the sun shine with teeth smiling white.

They all play around in the woods thinking of nothing but everything good. The wind sings with birds flapping their wings and the trees rustle a beat. Its like life is a song going through high notes and low notes with also a sad or happy end. The happy laughs from Aroha and her friends, they all forget about the bad things. Aroha overcomes her fears, and she also takes away the tears.

This is me competing in the Iron Tamariki. I this in Google Drawing. 
I did this drawing for my reading activity as part of the story Iron Tamariki. If I did this race I would be very tired because I am moving in water which isn't a fast thing to do.

Dear Diary,
Something  happened that flew  me off today in a Restorative Justice meeting or something like that. Only me, my parents, the mean bully and her parents were in the room as well. I saw something wrong with the bully she was shivering in fright, When the principal came in looking like she kidnapped someone. She looked mad. I got scared because my parents and the bully’s parents were there too.  The meeting went well. I felt joyful hoping I will never be judged again. I also felt sad even though she is mean her parents gave her a big growling.

The Hero- Paul

Boy wakes up in the hospital trying to focus his sight but all he sees is nothing but lights. Doctors rushing to get help. Boy sleeps again. 

He wakes up still kinda buzzed out.
He sees his sister. He's happy he's okay and he sees his family and friends, some were crying in a joyful way. They say how brave he was to save his sister, he woke up as a hero.

The doctors put Bridger the boy to sleep again to stitch him up. Professional surgeons come and work on his broken face, they stitch him 90 times. 

He wakes up happy. He said to his family “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” 

 After hours in the hospital they go home in the car. The boy sees where he was attacked.  He tries to  forget about it. 
They go inside and the mum takes pictures of the brother and sister. They post the story on social media

It goes viral. 

 What I found out about telegrams:
Telegrams were sent by an electrical telegraph person or telegrapher using Morse code, telegraphers or telegraphist were an operation to use Morse code to communicate. 

The telegrams were made in the 1830s and 1840s by Samuel Morse. Telegrams were sent by a submarine telegraph  cables. In the United States, Western Union shut down its telegraph service in 2006. At the time, the company reported that only about 20,000 telegrams were sent in the previous year. Telegraphs were used to send  letters to people in olddays.Telegrapher | I found a box of lost negtives that included t… | Flickr

A Wink and a Blink

Yesterday, for drama we began a study on Rapunzel. Instead of reading the story we had to design an article to 10 seconds around different aretifacts associated with the Fairy Tale. 

The Artifacts consisted of a black cape, bird nest/ nest necklace, padlock and key and very lastly a beautiful crown. Here is the article my group constructed around the artifact our group chose.
