Life Education Notes

Drugs are one of the most common committed crimes around the world, and at the life education caravan we are learning the effects. We learn about a few peoples life who has either died or been affected by illegal drugs.

One of the lines that Lynn (our teacher) had said was ‘Drugs don't choose people, people choose drugs’ and ‘All drugs are medicines but not all drugs are drugs’. There are different reason people, some people do it because of peer pressure and others do it to be cool. Did you know  if you do drug’s from the age of 12 to 25 years old than you will not have a fully developed brain!?

My Mascot

We were learning about mascot’s and it’s job’s, and it’s role at events like Commonwealth games and Olympics. So then we had a task  to think about and create our own mascot pretending that the  next Commonwealth games were going to be in New Zealand. We had to
choose appropriate icons to include.

My mascot’s name is Waitangi. I chose the name Waitangi so that all the countries could come together like how the treaty of Waitangi brought two different peoples together. He has a silver fern across his chest. He is also carrying the New Zealand flag on his back. I included these items to show that he is a kiwi icon. Waitangi’s job at the commonwealth games is to give a friendly welcome to visitors. It is important that he does his job properly so that when the visitors leave, they have a good image of New Zealand.
