Kids for Kids Concert

On Monday 17 September, I went to the Telstraclear Centre at Manukau with my father. when I went there I was happy to be there because I got to sing and do a little dancing. The first ones that went to the centre were me Caroline, Catherine and Illaisane, then it was the twins that came.

When we got there Miss G did not arrived yet and we had to stay outside. Then we saw Miss G coming in. After that we went into the first garage and we sat on the floor and listened to the person that was talking. We sat down and we played with the knucklebones and played with the cards. After that Daynah was talking and she told us to clap the way she claps.

We had to sit on the seats and some of the other kids sat on the chairs and the little kids sat on the wooden longboards on the stage.  When we sat down we looked at the curtain and we had a little practice at doing the claps again. They opened the curtain to each side and then we looked at the people and we saw there were a lot of people that came to the concert.

At half time we all had a rest and we ate chocolate and a biscuit, we had fun and we had a little play while the people were waiting for us to return to the stage. A big screen showed up and the people watched the World Vison video and some of us had a little peek while they were watching. We watched the world vision video because we had to look at the kids who are poor and help them which is what the concert was for.

The show was almost finished and we all sang one more song then  I went to the takeaways and I brought fish and chips to eat with my dad. I was happy and he gave me $10 for being so good. I thought that I sang good and so does the other people who sang. It was a great night at the Telstraclear Centre.

X - Country

On Friday 24th August, Saint Pius X school had cross country, at cross country there were teachers holding the flags and there were parents waiting for their children to race.

We waited and waited and then the race started, first it was the boys in room 1 then it was the girls in room 1. It was very very fun and some of the kids were standing and saying “go! go! go!”. It was room 4 then room 5 but still the boys had to be first and the girls had to be the second. After that it was the 10 year olds, Jane was the first one to come in the 10 year olds they were very fast. We all were waiting for our turn to race but we were racing in the 9 year olds, we were almost the last ones, I was hungry and thirsty.

When the children were ready to race they got into their places and they got ready, Miss G was the teacher to blow the start whistle. When she said “are you ready kids?”, then we said “yes”, she said “on your marks, get set, GO!” we all went running. When  I was running on the course it was so hot I was tired but I kept on running then I started to do the power walking then I jogged. When I was almost at the end I sprinted it and I was at the end.

When all the students were back from their running we went to our classrooms and we sat on the mat and ate our fruit. We all went home tired. It was a lovely day.
