Sometimes when I turn on my mini device the mouse freezes and I have to reboot it or it will not function. It takes time to re-pair netbooks and my one has been away for at least three weeks and I might not be getting it back until next year. Often when I click on the google chrome button it takes long to load my home page and I keep clicking, is it a network problem,computer problem or is it a me problem? NOT quite sure!
I have an advantage with my laptop. How you may be asking? Well I can get on with my work faster than usual. I don’t have to look in a dictionary, I can just type it in the search bar and there it is. Also another advantage is that I don’t need to write what I want to say I can type it, if I spell something wrong there would be a red line underlining the word.
The hardest thing for me was having to do work that was difficult because sometimes there is more hard work when I finish. The greatest challenge for me is been cyber smart on the Internet and keeping myself on task. Most of the time we are doing our work but if we’re lucky we might be allowed to play games. From time to time my electronic devices network would fail.
If the netbook scheme was to fail, some people would be defiantly be extremely angry! It would have been a waste of time working with a device like this if it was to fail. I think it would change our routine that we have stated lately.

When we finally arrived I was excited and tried to help everyone with everything. We did eventually transfer all of our luggage and food for the week from the ferry to the lodge.
Of all the activities that I got to participate in, sailing was my favourite. After a short time practising on a sail boat, we sailed to a seawall and then on to an old boat on the shore. I was going at least 5KM and it was so much fun! As I was sailing at great speed, I was yelling “yeah buddy”! I truly had fun learning to sail.
Abseiling was also a highlight from camp even though it was a significant challenge for me. Why was this such a challenge? (you might be asking yourself). Well, let's just say that when I hear the word "heights"... I begin to sweat profusely! Yes, that's right, I am afraid of heights. As afraid as I was, once I got to the top, I was determined to get to the bottom. As I began to abseil down, I felt like I was power walking on the wall. Determined to get to the bottom, I eventually made it.
Every afternoon except for Thursday, we were allowed to go for a swim and jump off the pontoon. When we jumped off the pontoon I always made a funny face. Once when we were on this platform, everyone was on one corner of it and almost made the water cover the pontoon. Jumping off was both fun and exciting.
I felt good at the end of the week, but sad at the same time because I didn’t want to leave camp Bentzon. I enjoyed my time and can’t wait for next time. Kawau Island was a great experience for me. I had an awesome time and I know that you would too!

At camp I hope that we will be allowed to jump off the wharf and do bombs. I hope that we can play some foot ball when we have free time. When we go on hikes I hope that we will see some interesting things along the way.
I’m excited about camp because I’ve never slept on a island. I can’t wait because we are going to learn how to sail a sail boat by ourselves. Also making crafts will hard but exciting because we get to take them for a try when we finish.
I hope that the weather is FANTASTIC for the whole 4 days that we are on camp. If the weather is fine I hope that we can play some sports like foot ball, rugby in the water and much more. During the night before we go to bed I hope we can play some spotlight. (if the weather is fine)
Camp sounds so exciting and fun I can’t wait to go! I think going to camp would be a memory to remember. I reckon we will have a great time at camp. I feel excited anxious about at the same time.

Every team had at least one year 8 leader and a leader 15 years or older. The older leaders that were looking after my team members and me were Jerome and David Clark,they were awesome leaders! We also had two more leaders that were year 8 and there names are Cameron and Kalim. In my cabin there was six of us and all of our names are Gabriel,Levi,David,Calvin,Francis and me. Every cabin had to come up with a name for their team and our name was the Spartans.
My most favourite part of camp was when we got to play on the Willow Park toys. The Willow Park toys were quad bikes, green machines,the scooters and the wobbly bikes. I always played on the quad bikes when it was time to play on the toys. I went as fast as I could and I even overtook one of my friends, Anthony. Another favourite part of camp was
get your own back. Get your own back is a game where you can get your leaders, you can throw mud and old food at them. You can even get sponges and put mud and dirty water and shove it in their mouths. Would you ever want to play this game with us?. When I was trying to get some mud Miss Va’afusuaga grabbed mud and spatted it all around my face and in my head I was yelling NO!. I can’t wait until the next time we play get your own back she’s my first target.

The Warriors Versing the Melbourne Storms was a really good game to watch because they are two really awesome teams. The first try was scored by the Storms then the Warriors third Warriors and the last for the first half Storms. It was so close in the first half because the Storms were winning then the Warriors and Storms I didn’t think the Warriors could do it. A while later the referee called a penalty against the Melbourne Storms, James Maloney took the conversion and got it in and the score for half time was 14 12 to the Warriors.
Now the score is 14 12 to the Warriors I felt like the Warriors were going to win at the beginning of the second half. There were so many chances for the Storms to score a try and be winning but they just couldn’t and the Warriors stayed in the lead for the rest of the time. “Go Warriors run! run!” I shouted. The Warriors scored a try and the referee up stairs had to look at it from the cameras. When the referee was looking he saw that Kevin Locke had knocked the ball on and it was called no try by the video referee. Go Warriors go yes yeah! the warriors just scored another try and are in the lead by 4 points and the score is now 18 12 to the Warriors. James Maloney did the conversion and got it in so then the score was 20 12 to Warriors. Now that the Warriors are in the lead by 8 points there’s no way Melbourne can catch up. At the last play of the game Shaun Johnson kick the ball straight to Manu Vatuvei and the ball just went out and they just let the time run out and the Warriors won 20 12.
I really wanted the Warriors to win and they did I am so happy for them. I liked it when the Warriors scored the tries because it made a more likely chance for the Warriors to win even though they did win. I hope one day I will play for the Warriors and be successful and maybe win the cup too.

Pack it up-Pack it in, let me begin.
Much respect to my peeps from Point England,

Thank you very much Point England Tu meke,

The Vodafone Warriors is one of my favourite NRL teams. The vodafone Warriors are a NRL team that have played very well through out this year. During the quarter final while the Warriors play I will be supporting them all the way. The Warriors lost against the Brisbane Broncos and just made it to the quarter final because they are coming 6th on the leader board.
The Wests Tigers are one of the best NRL teams that play. They have won every one of there games this year, and if they were to lose the game they would have been out of the tournament. I’m not saying they won or they lost. Earlier during the games the Warriors versed the Wests Tigers and the Wests Tigers won.
When I saw The last try I saw that Krisnan Inu went for the try and the Video referee had to look at it. Then suddenly... The video referee said it was a TRY! I was so excited to see the Warriors win that game. The final score was 22- 20.
I am so happy to see the Warriors win and can’t wait to see their game against Melbourne Storms. I hope that the Warriors win the game and go to the Grand final versing the Manly sea eagle or the Brisbane broncos and win the Grand Final Winning the cup.

Nah I told you she’d be Important, ya see instead of sharing the suns gift, this women, mother Gothle horded it’s healing power and used it to keep herself young for 100’s of years, and all she had to do is sing a “special song.” Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine make the clock reverse bring back what once was mine”.
Alright you get the gist she sings to it she gets young creepy, right?
“We found it”
The magic of the golden flower, healed the Queen. A healthy baby girl, A princess was born with beautiful golden hair. (baby happy sound) (happy proud adoring chuckle) I’ll give you a hint, that’s Rapunzel to celebrate her birth the King and Queen launched, flying lantern in to the sky.
and for that one moment everything was perfect......... and then that moment ended.
“Flower gleam and glow let your power shine make the clock re” the old lady gasps
(a crying baby) Gothile broke into the castle and stole the child and just like that GONE! The kingdom searched and searched but could not find the princess, for deep within the forest in a hidden tower Gothile raised the child as her own.
take what has been lost that once was mine gothel has found her magic flower.
But this time she was determent to keep it hidden “why can’t I go outside?”
The outside world is a dangerous place filled with horrible selfish people you must stay here where your safe do you understand flower.
But the walls of that tower could not hide everything....... each year on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousand of lantern into the sky. In hope that one day their lost
princess... would return..........

The skills we learnt first was the drop punt. The skill was a kick. The name of the kick was drop punt (as you may know), it is similar to a drop kick but you don’t drop the ball and kick. The AFL rules for kicking is quite different to how New Zealanders would kick a ball. When we got a AFL ball the first thing Megan told us was that you had to keep the laces away from you and kick the ball. We went away with a buddy kicking each other, suddenly I heard a whistle been blown and saw some kids running to Megan. Then she taught us a new strategy to go with the first one. The strategy was not to have muddy toes, muddy toes means that you flick mud at your partner (not literally). So we went off in our pears and My partner De’vyne and I did really well.
This the first time I’ve ever heard of Aussie rules and It is awesome. I didn’t know that Aussie rules existed until about a week ago and it was a sport I’ve never played or learnt before in my life. I like my school because we have the opportunity to play a lot of different sports with the your friends and teachers. Learning Aussie rules is different for me because the sport has different rules to rugby and league.
My favourite part of Aussie rules is the part when we get to play with the balls and play with our partner. Also getting to throw a ball at our teachers and coaches at the end of the first session. You should try it out if you can because it is fun!

I do really well with typing tutor and it teaches me a lot when I start to type. Sometimes I get tempted to cheat but I don’t and keep going. I’ve done ten certificates and it’s hard to get shift keys, getting my tenth made me proud because I thought I wouldn’t make it. Now that I’ve got my first ten I’m to aim to get another ten but change the time limit to twenty words per minute. Doing this makes me wont to complete ten every day, that would be awesome.
Typing tutor gets harder and harder every time I do it. It gets so hard I have to do it like four times in a row because I haven’t done fifteen or twenty words per minute. I can just pass some of the twenty words per minute and while doing them I want to look down at the time but if I do then I’ll stop and I might fail. I think typing tutor will get very hard and I might not be able to complete it, but if I keep my mind to it I reckon I will succeed.
When I keep my mind to completing typing tutor certificates I will improve my typing and hopefully get all of the certificates. During typing tutor lessons I get confused on where the keys are and sometimes push the wrong key. You should try it and see how well you do, and you would be amazed after a while just like I am. When I grow up I hope to be an excellent typist.

The first thing that we did the next day was go to walk around the city. When we were walking I was going to go and touch it from behind but suddenly Ra! I got a fright. We walked around the river and saw freaky things along with the walk. My grand father took a photo of me while we were walking. The photo was with this Man Who to me looked like a bat costume, He Had long fingers and put one hand one the top of my head and the other at the bottom of my head. It was weired to me but also fun.
Waking up to the sound of laughter... My grand parents and there friends were laughing at something I did’t understand but the laughed really loud. Aaaaa “I'm so tired” do you know what the time is, I asked Joshua. What are we doing today I asked my Grand ma. We are going to the market. Do I have to go with you? You can stay home today if you want to.Yes I will stay home with Josh today. Josh what are we going to do today... “Do you want to go to Dandenong it’s the big mall around here. Yes it sounds like awesome fun. Who are we going with? My mum is going to take us, he told me. I asked if his sister was going to come? He said “defiantly. If you’re wondering who his mum and sister are the The sisters name is Daniel and her mums name I’m not sure of but she’s my auntie. The first thing that we did in The shopping mall we went to Rebel sport and looked at there stuff that they had on sale. They had a mini basketball hoop that came with a ball for $20’s, along side you could pick your favourite team of the stock that they had and buy it. “Where are we going next”, I ask Josh. Any where you want to. No where to go that I know of. He said come with me and I will show you around the store Mya.
As we were looking in the store Mya we couldn't find his mum so we went looking … later on we that very same day in the mall we found them down stairs and his sister was trying to find us too. Lucky we found them other wise we might of had to walk home.
I felt sad that I had to leave and come back to New Zealand but I had a lot of fun while I was in Australia. That was a grate experience for me travelling to Australia and doing some awesome things. My time in Australia I will never forget.

During the amazing holidays I like to do things with just my dad. Do you know What we did? Well I’ll give you a clue. We traveled by bus and got off in town. The amazing holidays was the Easter holiday’s.
As my dad and I got off the bus we had to walk to Queen’s St. We were walking and I turned to a different street as my dad said “where are you going It’s this way”, I responded to him “isn’t it this way because you turn to a different street”. I was thinking to myself he might not have noticed that I walked somewhere else I could of got lost.
Before we did anything else we went to get something to eat. Do you like eating Chinese takeaway food? Well I do. I had noddles,rice,curry-lamb and curry-beef. It tasted very good, I don’t usually eat there. As we finished eating we walked out saying “thank you”...
Walking down the street, we were almost there... Suddenly I had to go to the toilet. I asked my dad if we could go to the Mc Donald's so I could go. When I walked in there were people steering at me.
As we crossed the road , I was thinking to myself in my head. I was saying please,please lets go play some spacies. We walked into the big foyer, and I quietly cheered a lady looked at me weirdly. When I walked down the stairs I tripped and almost fell down the rest of them.
Playing games is awesome, do you like playing games? My dad and I enjoyably watched a man racing on the game. Asking my dad “can we play that game to” “no” he replied. Then he said “put your money in then”, we began our race at the beginning he stared to win but we kept on changing placers. In the time we raced we always crashed into each other. “dad you just won the only reason why you seemed to have won because you crashed into more times then I did”.I said. “Challenge you again” I asked my dad. “yeah” he answered. I’m going to beat you this time man!. As we were beginning to race and suddenly on the screen it said new challenger please wait. Waiting for the race to start I had to adjust my seat. The race started and I was in second place until the other racer over took me. A couple of seconds later I was coming last,but... in the end beat my dad.
At the end of the day the best thing that happened was me beating my dad at a racing car game. That was most fun I had all holidays. Thanks for reading my story.

I’ve heard,saw and felt what it’s like to have joy in you. Have you ever had that feeling in your life? Well I’ve already told you I have I think having that feeling is great because you feel great your self. I hope you have the feeling that i’ve had before! (If you haven’t.)
I’m having difficulty making my work interesting. I hope that you enjoy my story. To me joy looks like sun shine on a summer day. It's like watching birds chirping as they sit on the green branches, In the afternoon breeze while they whistle songs back and fourth at each other.
Joy makes me feel like I have butterflies floating in my stomach like when your in the back seat of the car as it heads over a hump in the road that makes me giggle with delight. I just want to do it again and again like riding the INVADER at Rainbows End.
When you hear joy you hear laughter,gigging chattering and hussle and bussle of people coming together from all countries throughout the world. Joy is connectedness and the sharing of each others stories of how they came to be here.
I thought joy was a good value to choose because it sound’s happy in a good way. For me joy was a bit easy to write about. The value joy can be taught to anyone in the world. You can learn good things from the value joy!!

I got my netbook taken away from me because I wasn't using it with respect. I was playing a game and pushing any keys that I wanted to. I shouldn't have done that because thats not taking charge. When I play on my netbook I always use it the Pt England Way. I will not treat it the wrong way because I might have to work in my writing book. I will be respectful with my netbook .

Room eighteen Rocks!!!
Room eighteen is the class that I am in this year at PT.England school. 1 thing that I like about my class is that we have a deck outside our class. We also have doors where the wall use to be. Awesome!... Its cool having doors with a deck really close to us. If you amazing reader follow this link then you will go to this image I have chosen.
