Control!


Yesterday my group and I had our second session in control tech. This week and last week was basically "preparing" because we mainly focused on naming our slides, folders and setting up our google classroom.

Since coronavirus is still happening, we have arranged seating places so that we are all spread out but we can still talk to each other and see the teacher. One thing I enjoy about this class is that we don't get dirty and we don't have to move a lot.

Tubro Touch!


Today was our second session of turbo touch. Since lockdown came in place a few weeks ago we sort of forgot some of the rules and skills that coach Chris taught us. 

After going over everything we played football touch. The aim of the game is to share the ball around your team and trying to tap the other team. Team 1 wore orange bibs, team 2 wore green bibs. I'd say this is my favourite game even though we've only had 2 sessions.

Cyber Attack


There has been a new cyber attack on the New Zealand stock exchange. This means that NZX has stopped all trading in most of its markets. It's the fourth cyber attack that has happened in the last week.

No one knows who is behind this whole attack. "Two to three percent of the profits of the traders could be wiped out by cyber attacks" New Zealand's Central bank said. The New Zealand government has now begun activating the national security system.

Remembering The Christchurch Earthquake


At 4:35am on September the 4th 2010, residents of Christchurch had been awoken by the large noises and shaking of the big earthquake that happened that day. The earthquake damaged buildings in Timaru and Dunedin. 

To this day Christchurch cathedral is still being repaired as well as many other buildings. This earthquake had killed 185 people.

How I Feel About Lockdown!

Since this is the second lockdown that New Zealand has been through, I'm not really that keen to be staying home. Although its boring one thing that is good about staying home is that we get to stop the spread of covid-19 throughout our community.

Staying home also gives me and my family time to retrace where we've been and to limit the contact between family members and the public. Maybe after this lockdown we will have a less amount of covid-19 cases than the start of it.

Volleyball Tournament!

This year I was able to represent my school at the volleyball tournament held at the Barfoot and Thompson Stadium in Selwyn College. Our first match was against Panmure district. We had a mix of 3 girls and 3 boys for the Y7&8 team. 

A few parents came to watch and support the students from our school. During our breaks we went outside to practise our digs, sets and how to call out for the ball. I enjoyed playing volleyball this year and hopefully I get the chance to do it in college next year.

Technicraft


Last Wednesday I got the chance to finish making my box to put my necklace in. After I saw my box was all finished Mr Grundy polished the wooden box with wood oil. As soon as that was done I tried to finish my workbook while the oil was setting.

On the workbook I had to write down the steps on how to make the pewter necklace and explain what I used to make it. It was fun making the necklace.
