Did you know swimming can save your life? Because if you know how to swim then you will survive if a boat sinks.

If you were stuck in the sea and you had to swim to something and hang on to it until a rescue team comes. Which item would you pick. A chilly bin, Log, Fishing box, Plank wood, Ball, Oar. If you can’t stay with your boat any of these things will keep you safe until you survive.

But the most important thing you need to “WEAR” is a Life Jacket. That is the most important thing you need to wear when in the water.

My Story.

As I was sitting on the top of the hill looking over Te Rakau. Suddenly an idea popped into my head. I run back home and told my whanau. They said it was a brilliant idea.

So went to Mr Turnbull’s house, and we told him take those house down now, because that land does not belong to you. It’s Maori land, “you have no right” said grandpa. yea, yea, yea said dad, mum, and wiremu and his friend.

Just standing their with surprise Mr Turnbull said “you're right I can’t do this to other people’s land especially to Tane Mahuta. We need to stop this and we need to do it now. We got into our car and drove off.

Three weeks later the house was gone and Te Rakau was back to normal.

Maniakalani Film Festival

Sitting inside the theater, waiting for the film festival to start. It was exciting because I couldn’t wait. Suddenly the lights dimmed, and it started.

Do you know how to talk silently. Well  “The Test’ tells you all about it. The movie was created by a class from my school, Room 18.  The reason why this is my favourite movie is because it was funny ,interesting and entertaining all at the same time. Go to this link , here, and you’ll know why it’s all of these.
