Disaster in Christchurch

Rescuers Looking at the terrible sight hoping there are no people left inside. In every direction they look there is complete destruction, and the death toll rising by the hour. Nearly everything destroyed, and everywhere danger lurks beneath the grounds of Christchurch.

Sensational Tonga

Such a hot day isn’t it. Tonga is both hot and WONDERFUL! I thought in my head. I, Seini-Mino was at Lavengatonga beach.

Sitting down and sinking my toes in to the hot sand felt really nice. After a few hours in the sand I decided to go for a swim, but just when my toes reached the water I shouted,” COLD”, the water was freezing . After that I just planned to run in to the beach instead of just walking in, so I could get it over and done with. So here it goes, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH”, I shouted as I ran in to the beach.

“COLD”, I shouted at the very top of my lungs, as my head popped out of the freezing, cold water.
My cousins told me to move around a lot so I could get use to the water. “ Aaaaaa" , at last I was
I was floating peacefully.

Until a big, massive wave came smashing down on my face . I was swept to shore and even better ,was that I had sand in my hair! What made my day that was my aunty from Austraila asked me if I wanted to go snorkeling.

I was full of excitement when I put the mask on. Down I go underwater and it was amazing!
I could see little tiny fish, but mostly the ones with black and white stripes on them. Until I saw a rather unusual looking fish, this fish was red and weird patterns on it, Acutally I was kind of scared so I swam away, but I think it was the other way around.

While I was underwater I could hear the water come past my ears and also the fact that everyone was following me and saying,”Mino can I have a turn”, It was so annoying! So I gave up the snorkel and the mask and gave it to my cousin, so now everybody can go annoy her now.

The thing that was most irratating of them all was, when you wanted to go eat the sand would stick to your feet. That was pretty stink I said.

I had LOTS of FUN even though there were my ups and downs mainly the downs that still didn’t stop me from having lots of fun. The day ended as the sun went down, it was 8.47pm, so that means I was there till 12.00 pm to 8.47pm. One word WOW. that was the 2nd longest time I have ever been at a beach.

It was a long way home ,I got hit with raindrops because it started to rain, It was like I was getting hit with pebbles, I was on the back of a truck ,but that was all part of the fun!

Net books,net books and even more net books!

It is very cool learning with net books ! Instead of having lots of books and even better you can easily carry it around, also it connects to wireless
(you can go anywhere in the school and go on the internet without having to plug it in to a modem) I think that's absolutely amazing.

In the school all the year 5,6,7 and 8's have this opportunity, that over 200 net books! The picture above I took on my net books

I am very greatful to have this opportunity.
