My great holiday!!!

Holidays are always fun for everyone!!! It is kind of a special holiday for us and especially for my brother because his birthday.

His first request was going to the movie. We watched “Ice Age 4”. It was really cool and funny, we all cracked up!!! Then we had our lunch at KFC because my brother loves their chicken. We went straight to the AMF bowling alley after lunch. It was disappointing because there was no available slot for us to play bowling. We had to move to paradise ice skating instead.

Ice skating is an awesome exercise. It’s odd how we sweat in the middle of an ice rink! We got better each time we try new tricks. We have improved a lot since our first time we tried it. It was really cool.

We all had an amazing day and in the next school holidays... can’t wait for my birthday!!!

The New Olympic Theme!

It’s a new term which means new theme and this terms theme is “GO FOR GOLD!!!” (The Olympic Games) Perfect timing because this term we're going to have the cross country race and athletics day. No doubt we’re going to have lots of sport going on in the term!!!

Today at immersion assembly my favourite team performance was team three. I liked their combination of movies and acting. The teachers pretended to be olympians from the nineteens Olympic Games!

I learned a couple of facts about the Olympic Games and some of the olympians too. Did you know that in 1952 a New Zealand olympian Yvette Williams won a gold medal for long jump and In 1954 at Gisborne she set a new world record with a jump of 6.29m! She held the record for 18 months (1954 and 1955) Awesome right!!!

Hope you enjoyed my story. In the Olympic Games I'm going to be cheering "Go New Zealand!!!"

My PEPA Experience

Hi my name is Jouan, and I'm here to tell you about my dream of being a ballet dancer and how (Point England Performing Arts) PEPA made it come true. Read this story if you want to follow me in my way to making my dreams come true!!! 

Do you have a dream, that you think will never come true? Well I'm here to prove you wrong and to prove that dreams do come true! I had a dream to be a beautiful and famous ballet dancer. 
Guess what it really did come true!!!

I joined PEPA  because I was inspired when I watch the royal ballet in a spacial field trip. They all danced so gracefully and they were all so beautiful. I just had to sign up for the PEPA ballet group.

It was a great and very fun experience for all of us that were in the group. We had a tutor from royal ballet her name was Hannah. She tout us all the actions and did everything. I think we got the best tutor that royal ballet can give!

Our song was "Black Eyed Peas - One Tribe". There were lots of training and hard work involved in the process but still all worth it!!! It turned out amazing and all our hard work payed of!!!

Follow your dream, work hard and it will come true. It did for me, well all of us!!!

KFC Ice Skating

Last Thursday we had a fund racing event for KFC (Kids For Christ). Can you guess what we did? We went Ice Skating at Paradise Ice Skating.

I went with my family, cousins and my aunt. I also saw some of my friends in KFC too. "This is going to be really fun," I said to my cousin. She reply back "No doubt about it!"

It was my first time to ever Ice skate, so I didn't know what to expect. Some of my friends say "When you get on the ice you will fall straight to the ice." It was so cold inside. There was a lot more people than I expected. 

When I got on the ice I couldn't go as fast but after a couple of minutes I got the hang of it. My cousin on the the other hand couldn't even stand up on the ice by herself!

We still had an awesome time and a great experience! Not to mention, it's for a good cause too. I can't wait till we come back next time!!!
