2014 is now nearly over, sadly! It has been a bumpy roller coaster ride for me. But overall it was very fun and exciting! My teachers were Mr.Barks, Mrs.Nua, Ms.Paget and help from Ms.Va'afusuaga. My favourite part of this year was probably year 8 camp, it was very fun ! The highlights of this year were probably the year 8 camp,the art gallery and at the start of the year at the Point England Beach picnic. Did you know class 1 never stayed in the same class room for a term! In term 1 we were at the junior block. In term 2 we were in the street. In term 3 we had our own class room. then in term 4 we had Class 5 Class 1 and the street!! Overall this year was very fun and im going to miss Point England ALOT! But I am also looking forward to college!

Camp was a very great experience because I got to spend time with the boys and I got closer to everyone in my year. I loved the walk it was like an adventure or one of those Bear Grylls trips through the wilderness. Our cabins were really cold it had a concrete floor and about a 2m width.
On the night before we left for Marsden bay camp I couldn't sleep I was so excited. The morning came I woke up at 7am ready to go. My dad drove me to school with my cousin Christian (who also is in the same year as me and was coming to camp). We said our goodbyes to our family and had to go into the hall. One by one Mrs.Nua checked if everyone was here. "100 percent attendance", the bus' arrived , "Yo, Shayne me and you sit next to each other" ,I said. He replied with a nod.
We packed our bags onto the bus and off we went, for the first 10 to 20 minutes it was fun talking with Shayne listening to music, then I got tired and all I could hear was Henry arguing with all the girls. I told him to be quite, but then I ended up just joining the argument. Finally I just drifted off to sleep.
When I woke up and we stopped to get out of the bus, I thought we were there but just then we were stopping to go on a 2 hour hike!! First we had to cross a river, with a buddy . Mine was Jonathan. He was scared of the water so I had to piggy bank him across, 'SPLASH' I slipped on a rock we both fell in, after that we walked the whole tramp soaked.
The food there was great, on the first night we had roasted potato's, beef, and vegetables and I forgot the rest, But it was delicious. But my favorite was the burgers. But unfortunately I didn't eat the desert.
Overall I loved camp, it was good bonding with my peers and spending more time with the boys. The activities was fun but I didn't get to do Archery. My Favorite part of camp was the Camp fire it was fun and really really warm!!

Bang! The loud sonic boom from the two planks of wood startled me. It was time to see if our training for cross country 2014 has paid off! I could feel a little shake in my legs. After a while I got back on track, continuing to run my hardest. I pumped my legs furiously . Running around the corner I accidentally slipped, but I got back into a good position. I ran my hardest to the gate and caught up to my friends Rocky, Shayne, Isaiah, Jacob and Antonio. We started to jog together as a group.
“HHUU UGGH,” I was breathing heavily by the end of the race. My boys Rocky, Shayne, Isaiah, Jacob, Antonio and I all came last together. Although we came last we ran our hardest.
