Christmas all Around the World

How do you celebrate Christmas ?
Well people all around the world celebrate Christmas differently because everyone has different ideas. I wonder what it feels like to have Christmas overseas.

I wish everybody a Merry Christmas!

My talented Friend

This is my best friend Edwina. She is very talented and smart. She always tries to prove that she can do the best of her abilities. When she is at school she tries make as many friends as she can so she can be a good role model for the younger students.

I hope she gets a good job so she can prove that she is PERFECT!!!

Avoiding hazards on the bike.


For the past 2 weeks the years 4, 5 and 6 have had cycle safety lessons from these talented instructors Eddie and Adrian. They taught us the safety rules. Every body was told to pull the quick release underneath the seat so the height is up to your waist .We all had to wear helmets to prevent our head from getting injured, because if you fall off your bike you might injure your head. We also learnt how to look back over your right shoulder because that's the side the road is on . To always prevent your head from injuries wear a helmet!!!

Today Glenbrae school hosted the Inter school athletics.8-10 schools were involved. All the kids tried their best in all the events. There were 5 events that the students participated but the limit for the events were 4 events because others would not have a turn. We all tried our best to achieve what we were going for unfortunately some students didn't come anywhere but at least they tried.

So why doesn't everybody have a go ?

Election Day

The 26th of November is election day. We have elections in New Zealand every 3 years . Three years ago John Key's party, National,  was elected  and he became the Prime minister because National had more votes than the other party groups. I hope Nick Bakulich from the Labour party wins because he would be a great leader for the government in the future.

The Boy who Cried Wolf

Hi my name is Guy , Guy the massive sheep. I have been living in this paddock for almost 7 years with an annoying Shepherd boy. All I ever do is chase ,chase and chase the fluffy dog because I need to get fit but I feel so lazy.

One day I was chasing the dog when all I heard was the shepherd boy yell out “ help help there’s three wolves trying to eat my sheep”. So all the villagers came running down with pitchforks, fire sticks and lawn mowers and then the villagers stopped at the paddock and all you could hear is peace and quite.

Then the next day the villagers recognised that he was obviously lying so they decided not to believe him anymore.

Then the wolves really did turn up. He was shouting his head off saying,”help help they’re 3 humongous, nasty wolves. The villagers would not listen so they didn’t come.

The sheep ran to old ladies houses for saftey.

The Shepherd boy was snoring in his bed at home when the wolves knocked on his door.

A wolf ate the shepherd boy but spat him back out because he didn’t taste nice.

The shepherd boy shepherd was never believed again.

My Wonderful Weekend

Wow!! What a wonderful afternoon going to a big party and performing. My sister and I were performing for my cousins 21st and we did 2 dances. The hall was surrounded with people. There was a live band and it was so cool. After my sister and I had danced we went to go and count all our money. We made a lot and then we went to go and watch the others perform. I reckon their performance was better.
