Hi all hope you had a great time at (Kids for Kids).
We arrived at the SOUTHWARDS CAR MUSEUM, and we were put into lines of heights tallest to smallest. I was one of the ones at the back I was too tall to sit next to my friends. . We walked into the the big space that had rows of chairs all the way down to the stage, special Kids for Kids chairs. We sat in the rows of chairs that over looked the stage. From the schools that were yelled out there were, Raumati Beach school, College street Normal school, Fair-field school, Paraparaumu Beach school, and last of all St Patrick’s. We were all called up to come on stage in the rows we were in. The row I came in had the number 6 row. As we were sitting on our chairs/platform, the guy from (FUNKY MONKEY) comes out, every one yells and cheers for him. He does his little talk and introduces the lovely JACKIE CLARK. She gets a big round of applause, she comes out with her fancy walk (YAY WOW HI HI HELLO) everyone says in big voices. We start of with warming up our vocal cords lalalalalalalal mmmmmmmmmmm haaaaaaaaaaaaaa. And on. We start with some actions with the song singing along to it. We do a few more songs, then we get sent away for morning tea, while we are eating the soloist got to go up and audition, Courtney comes back with some great news. She gets a duet singing part. well we all know that Tash and Simone were the only ones that got to do the ukulele playing and they were great!!!. We came back on stage, got some points from the sound desk our highest score 10 billion. (WOW). After that day of practising we had to go back to school (oh man nooooo).
But we came back eventually at 6:45 pm, I was one of the ones that came early, I was waiting, then finally someone I can talk to, I said to Petra. Then every one comes bursting through the door. We get ready to take a picture. And we’re finally on stage singing with all our soul. lalalalalalalalalalalala. It comes to half time, everyone is busting to go to the toilet and it’s loud with lots of voices saying how good it was. “I can’t wait to go back on” someone said.
We arrive one very last time with our voices singing out to the audience. While we are in the second part of the second half we watch a little video for the poor people needing help. This little girl gets asked to show off the t-shirt, and then some more songs to do. For our last song we sing as powerful as we can.

We have now finished our monster descriptions for Miss Fraser’s class in Australia. How successful will you be in giving a description of your monster so that one of her students is able to draw your monster. If you have given them the details they need they should draw something close to what you drew. Let the fun begin!
Last Friday St Patrick’s School had their cross country, Which if you didn’t know is a running race. Years 2-8 walked down to the domain, year 1 stayed at school. Once we were all down at the park, we got ready for our races, years 2-3 went first, they had to run once around the park (400 m) all of them did very well. Except one little girl fell over, her friend stopped running and came to help her! Next was year 4, my brother is a year 4 so I was supporting him, they had to run around the big circuit, which went on the footpath, some people started out in first place, sprinting the whole thing, and ended up coming around second to last place, my Brother was coming 4th, then they ran behind the huge trees, and when they all ran out, Thomas was coming second! Francis came first!
Next was year 5-6 this was going to be a fabulous race, they all lined up on the start line and got into their start positions, GO! and they all ran off around the big circuit and once around the 400 m track. Some walked, others sprinted, many jogged. A boy name Conner won that race!
Next was year 7-8, NOOOOO! I quickly fetched my water bottle, and slurped a little bit of water. I stretched my legs and arms, and jumped up and down a few times, I was ready, I ran to the side of the start line, because the majority of peoples injuries happen because they were tripped up the the middle! Natasha obviously had the same idea as me and squeezed in next to me, GO! and we were off, Vaughan was in the lead and quickly kissed his Mum on the cheek, everyone else kept running, We had to run around the big circuit twice. My brother and friends were cheering us all on, “Go!” “Come on!” Run faster” they were yelling at everyone! We had done our first round, I ran past the Teachers, They cheered us on too, Vaughan was in the lead (No surprises there) I was in second with a big gap between me and the person the third, I normally always look back to see if someone is going to pass me, but I didn’t this time, I just kept running, Vaughan ran over the finish line, he had won! I came in second! Therese came in third and so on…
Once all my friends ran over the finish line, we all fell onto the ground, breathing heavily, “Congratulations____on____your___run” I could barley say a whole sentence without having to take a huge breath between it, We all caught our breath back and couldn’t stop talking the whole way back to school. The top 12 people from year 5-8 made it into the inter school run! Which is this week on Wednesday. I cant wait!

Do you like Greek Mythology and Goddess Girls? If so then this is the book for you! The story revolves around Artemis The Goddess Girl of the Hunt and how she is bothered by the fact that only boys are allowed to participate in the Games on Mount Olympus Academy. She of course has the total right to be frustrated, because if you were a girl and if boys were only permitted to enter a game ,because they think that girls are too sensitive, then wouldn’t you feel irritated? Now Artemis has to bring justice to the girls who are studying in Mount Olympus Academy. She has to somehow convince Principal Zeus to let them participate. It is her duty and she must do it , otherwise the boys are going to underestimate them forever , and that is seriously unacceptable! If that wasn’t bad enough, some nasty giants are being complete jerks and her brother, Apollo, thinks that her actions are stupid and just full of nonsense. Can Artemis win back Apollo’s trust? Will she be able to convince Principal Zeus to let the girls compete? To find out read Goddess Girls: Artemis the Loyal, by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams.
