30/3/17
Today after school me and Savanah went around all the classrooms to collect pozis as a part of our weekly duity as house points cordinators. Me and savanah have a system in place where we go to the class rooms in order so we dont disturb any important lessons.

Key Leadership-Counting pozis-Merit post #5

18/3/17
On Thursday I went around the school to collect in all the pozis. First we started at the year 6 hub then went down to year 5 hub so on. This time it was very hard because a lot of the teachers keep forgetting to write the totals on the box I will solve this problem by putting something in the teacher notices to remind them. Also another problem was that in some parts of the school the internet was playing up me and Savannah solved this by writing the totals on a piece of paper and entering them in when we had internet. I showed active thinking by thinking up ways to solve our problems and I also showed community because I contributed to the community of Oaklands School by collecting the pozis.

leadership in choir and buddy programme-merit #5

17/3/16
This Morning I headed down to the hall to do choir First we started With some warm ups
(mini mini ma minni minni ma minni minni ma ma ma ma mouse) Changing the pitch and speed each time.
Than we sang Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong I think I did well especially on the harmony
And we also sang Africa by Toto and I think I did well by powering my voice the whole group sounded great.

After morning tea I went to go do buddy programme I took a game of Captions Coming but me and jade changed it up a bit to make it easier for the kids to understand. I think me and jade did great because we got the kids to listen to us and at the same time the kids had fun. Also I showed community because I was contributing to the community of Oaklands School.

Year 7/8 Writing Blog Post

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is the first paragraph in my writing.

Leadership is a skill of being able to motivate people/teams to work towards a goal. To be a good leader you need to be able to properly demonstrate these six traits of an effective leader: Integrity, Trustworthy, Resilient, Goal Focused, Active Thinker, and Motivational. My key leadership role for 2017 is House Points Co-ordinator. This means that I am in charge of counting Pozis and presenting the results in assembly.

Games with minimal or no equipment.



In PE we have been participating in a variety of games that require little or no equipment.
Below is the Matrix which shows our progression in this unit of learning.


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 12.32.06 PM.png


The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.


Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
Hospital Tag
Captions Coming

Cones and bibs.Because just in case we are bored or if we have to look after a group of juniors and we can entertain them.


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning Is coming up with great ideas to change the game because The teachers asked us to make so changes to make the games even more fun.


My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment Is to know more games that don't need to many players Because All the games i know need around 10 or more players.

Key leadership blog post-first time presenting house points in assembly-merit #4

6/3/17
Today after lunch there was a whole school assembly I was very nervous for this assembly because this was the first time I had to present the house points update. Sitting up the front waiting for my name to be caled was nerve racking. Once I was on stage I suddenly felt all right I think I presented my bit well by putting enthusiasm into my voice.
So far Rata is winning then Miro then Kowhai then Rimu.

I think I showed Active Thinking because last minute before assembly there was a problem with the presentation and Mr Muller and I quickly solved.

Leadership- Joining Choir and joining Kapahaka showing community-merit blog post #3

2/3/2017
Last Friday morning I decided I would join choir. Choir started early in the morning so I had to go to school a bit earlier. Choir was held in room six with Mr Rule. First we did a Wiata then we went through the songs we will be singing at the Music Festival.


Not too soon after I joined kapahaka we sang ka Waiata and we did a cool harmony where the younger students their sang their version and the older students sang their version and we sounded really good also we started to learn the lyrics to Aotearoa by Stan Walk.

Overall I think I showed community really well by contributing to the community of Oaklands School.

Key Leadership-exciting leadership meating-Merit post #3


1/3/17
On Monday the 27/2/17 Mr Ladbrook took all of the student leaders in a meeting. Everyone got a chair and we formed a circle. This meeting was a very exciting meeting because Mr Ladbrook said that all of the student leaders as well as the Head pals and Peer Mediators will be going on a school field trip to the council.
This is really exciting news because I have never been to the council before. After all that news Mr Ladbrook asked if Savannah and I could come to school a bit early the next day to soft out and organise some stuff to do with house point co-coordinating.

The next day Savannah and I came to school early. First we sent the google slide we made to Mr Ladbrook for him to say weather it is good e for assembly then Mr Ladbrook ask me if I could sent out an email to inform all the teachers about when me a savannah will come to their class to collect there pozis.
