Logo Design

Wondering what this is, It's a logo I made to represent my house colour Hine Moana. This terms focus is art and In our team 5 block we are rotating around every class trying new types of art. 

My pattern represents Hope and growth, it's not very detailed but I tried my best. I put patterns in from places and things that represented my house colour. 

Hope you like it.

Wool & Nail Art

Wool & Nail art, the year 7's and 8's are focusing on art this term. We rotate around our space trying different activities, today I tried Wool & Nail art in Mr Wisemen's class. 

How we did this - We used a stencil that looked like a star and with 11 nails we nailed down the edges and from then on we tried to make our own shapes. If you can't guess what we made it's a sad face.

Immersion Assembly 2016

Term 2 has just started and to start off this term we always have a special Immersion assembly, all the teachers dress up in costumes to show what their team will be learning about. This term’s topic is “as I see it”. It’s all about art and all of the school Team 1, Team 2, Team 3, Team 4 and Team 5 are working on different types of art.

The focus for Team 1 is “My favourite things”. Team 2’s focus for this term is all the seasons Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Team 3 are learning about building and they actually based their movie and item for Immersion Assembly on a actual program that comes on t.v Grand designs. Team 4 focused their art on comics and making their own superheroes. Lastly Team 5, we are focusing on ancestors and the four waka Hikianalia, Hinemoana, Hokule’a and Te Aurere.

I really liked the Team 3 idea, building, fixing and designing. I really like their idea because you can really go crazy with what you build. I also like their idea because one day I could turn out to be a great builder and maybe I could even build my own dream house. You could make anything that comes to your mind build a house, shelter, shop or even a school.

Team 5 are just learning about art and colours, I do like our topic because one day I might decide to become an artist like Vincent Van gogh, or Picasso. I am really looking forward to this year.  I can’t wait to find out what we'll be doing  this year and I’m also looking forward to learning about more types of art.

Little Helper

Family Outings

What I have learnt this Holiday

I have learnt a huge amount of things about kindness this school holidays. I've learnt to use my manners and even when to use them. Before the school holidays started I was just an ordinary kid but now i’m like a kindness superhero. Being kind doesn’t apply to everyone but it’s just the right thing to do.


Today is the last day of the school holidays, I have been blogging since the first day of the holidays and I have missed some days. All my posts have been about Kindness, helping and simple acts of kindness. Kindness can be a quality of being a good friend towards others and putting yourself into other people’s shoes, by respecting their wishes in life.


I have had a great holiday and I hope that you have too. Spending time with family, friends and having fun with them. I bet we all would rather stay home for another 2 weeks but I think going back to school will be fun, what i’m looking forward to is seeing all my friends and my teachers.
