Yesterday Glenbrae school had their first day of clubs! The club I had chosen was Pasifika Dance Fusion. The teachers that were teaching us how to dance were Mrs Tofa and Miss Tuia. We are learning a Cook Island dance since it was Cook Island language week but, as the weeks go on we are going to be learning different Pasifika cultural dances. I was very happy I joined the Pasifika dance Fusion because I get to learn different cultural dances each week and, I can't wait to learn a Samoan dance next week for clubs!

3 state matters - Room 8

Today Room 10 went to Room 8 for science intensive. We were learning about the 3 matters (Gas, Solid, liquid). Our first activity was melting chocolate. The chocolate was first a solid and then once we melted the chocolate in the microwave, it became a thick liquid. Then we made figures out of them and let them cool!

Bonus Activity: You and your tour group have enjoyed your day in the mountains but you’re ready for a change of scenery. You ask Curious Kiwi to take you to Central Otago, a region of the south island with lots of rolling hills and flat, brown grasslands. While in Central Otago, you decide to join the Otago Central Rail Trail – a 150 km long cycle trail. Curious Kiwi and I (Rachel) cycled the Rail Trail in April and we loved it!
On your blog, tell us whether you would like to cycle the Otago Rail Trail one day. Does it sound like fun? Why or why not?
I would love to go Otago Rail Trail because………
I would love to see more about New Zealand and also i've never been to the South Island! I would love to see the amazing views while on the Trail! After looking at the photo it just makes me want to go on the Otago Rail Trail! (Plus this looks so much fun and sound like it also!)

Bonus Activity: On your blog, post a video or write a description about your week. What have you learned? What did you like about the trip? What didn’t you like? Was there anything that surprised you?
To earn full points for this activity, you must talk about what you learned, what you liked and what you about your great kiwi road trip.
For the past week I have been exploring New Zealand! New Zealand was filled with so many thing that can shock and surprise you! What I learnt while I was exploring was that I saw things that I never usually see back in Auckland! What surprised me was that I can’t believe that Hector Dolphins are killed every year due to fishing! That really surprised me and I couldn’t believe it! The thing I really enjoyed about this adventure was when I got to learn more about different places in New Zealand! I really enjoyed this adventure and I hope you did too!
Thank you Rachel, for what you have given my school and I thank you for the opportunities you have given us! Thank you once again!!

WLJ - Day 7 Activity 2

Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed.
On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!

What relaxes me …...
Is when i’m either reading a book and listening to music! Reading a book makes me stay calm and have quiet time to myself. Music on the other hand just takes me out of my comfort zone and it calms me down also. If i’m not reading a booking or  listening to music I would either sometimes study on my chromebook or go outside!

After a long soak in the natural hot pools, it is time to get back home. Your family and friends can’t wait to see you and they can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Take a moment to think about what you have seen and done over the past week.
