Why over stayers get deported

“Are you worried that one day you might get deported from NZ?”
People from other countries come to NZ to live. Some others have an expiry date on their visa and when they stay  longer thats how they get deported back. I believe that overstayers should stay in NZ, so they could get a better education, be better connected with their family and they can contribute to the society with skills they learnt from their country in all topics.

First of all, Education is important for us because we learn things that we have to learn in life.They can learn how to read and get told things you ain't allowed to do in the future Education takes us to a higher level in the future. It also gets the overstayers higher grades. Good jobs will help the overstayers and it helps the family in the future.

In fact Overstayers should stay in NZ to get closer to their family members.                                   In addition, Some family members of theres can help the over stayers to get a great life. Also they can get family members to sign the papers so that they can finally be a NZ citizen.

In addition, The society should contribute to this, so more kids  could get more opportunities for their own life and care. They should let little kids from other country come and learn here and get a better life. People such as overstayers wouldn't want to be deported back to their own country after 3 or 4 years living in NZ. They might of found a home brought a new car felt like they belong here and last of all made close friends. I feel sad about the government not letting the overstayers come to live in NZ for good because some of my family members my get deported back if their visa date might be expired and so I might not see them any more.

As you can see it is extremely important that the immigration should consider the people whose more settled with life here in NZ and probably send the horrible people who do bad things in NZ back to their countries. I believe the government should change the law, so that it can be fair for all the overstayers to come and live in NZ  for good.

Today was a very cold and windy day. We had a softball session with some softball coaches. First they introduced themselves to us then we played octopus for a warm up game. We learnt the same basic skills but with a softball glove on.

Then we got straight into it. My partner and I were facing opposite each other.We had to stand in the monkey position, which was the very for the first skill we learnt was the crocodile. We also
learnt the 12 o’clock catch.

Last we had a competition. For each catch we catched we had to take 1 step back. If you don't catch the ball then you stay in the same spot. Then the 3 teams made nearly up to the top of the field. The rest of us went to go sit down and watch the other teams playing. There were only 2 people in a team. The 3 teams were competing to win and it only came down to 2 teams. After a while there was 1 team that won and went to class with nothing.

The Great Alfonso Q&A

  4.    What do you think is the main idea of the poem?  To show everyone that the great Alfonso has special skills at being a magician

 5.    What is the new trick the magician is training to do?
Float a goat

6.    Does Alfonso use complicated tricks or words in his show any more?
No because he's sticking to simple magician tricks

 7.   Do you think the information in this poem would be useful if you wished to become a magician? Quite likely because some of his tricks sound easy to master

  8.   What question would you ask Bertie? How does it feel to cut people in half and just leave the person there?

Can you think of a possible problem with teaching a goat to float?
The great Alfonso might fail his trick because the goat might be too heavy to be floating

Can you think of a solution to Bertie’s problems?
If its possible to do an undo trick for magicians then ‘Bertie’ can probably do the undo trick to save the lady from just sitting there and dying in the box she got sawed in.

Do you believe magician’s require much skill, practice and training?

Yes because if you're on stage and you forget to train but you think you know how to master it, you might fail and look like a total fool

Softball Recount

On the second day back at school I was surprised to find out that we had a softball session with three ladies from Auckland Sport. As we walked in a straight quiet line there were 2 ladies who introduced themselves to us students.
Firstly we played a warm up game. The game we played was ‘Red light Green Light’
The aim of that warm up game was to stop when its Red light and go when its Green light. After a while we had to pair up in partners. We lined on the white and yellow line facing the opposite of each other. We learned how to throw the ball straight, and make it bounce.

Overall I had a fun time learning new skills and I’m looking forward to learning more new skills.

Movie Day With Tame'e

Yay! In the holidays Tame’e and I went to the movies. We decided to watch despicable me 2. First we went to buy our ticket then we zoomed off like rockets to buy some snacks and drinks for our movie.
When we came back to the movie theater. “Oh we’re lucky we got here in time” Tame’e said while she was catching her breath.
We pulled out our movie tickets to show the security that we have paid. We walked in as quiet as cats so we didn’t disturb anyone. We pulled out our snacks and slowly opened them so no noise would be heard. “SSSHH” I said whisperly to some people at the back of us because they were as loud as 10 million parrots talking at once. Advertisements were shown right before the movie and that part was really boring.

The movie started and everyone slowly started to quieten down and little yellow minions were talking in an alien type of voice. The little minions were so cute. As the beginning of the movie had started

Tame’e and I were laughing because a man was dressed up as fairy for a specials girls birthdays. The little girls name was Agnes and she was a HUGE fan of unicorn.
The movie was half way through and I was so entertained from it. The movie was Hilarious.
I was stuffing HUGE hand fulls in my mouth. We still had heaps of lollies and chips in our bags.

The movie had ended. It was a great animation movie, even though it was suitable for younger children Tame’e and I still found the movie entertaining for us. We both had a funny time watching Despicable me 2. Hopefully we do this again sometime next holidays.
