Accenture Trip

Today, the 26th of September we went to the Accenture which is held in Auckland City. Even though I have never heard or have never been there, just by the information that Mrs Anderson told us about, I knew that we would have a great time!
Okay, so today we went to Accenture. For me personally just arriving in Town and seeing the building I did not want to go inside because I thought that we were going to go all the way up, but lucky we only went to Level 12. When we arrived into the building we met Daniel, Bryce, Jess, Sed, Luke and many other amazing workers of Accenture. I think my experience this whole day was totally different and exciting at the same time. Even though I knew nothing about coding or IT, they explained everything and they also offered help which was lovely. 
Overall today was amazing, learning new things such as coding, virtual reality things and many more cool things. I think my favourite part of the trip was just getting to know more about Digital…

Career´s Night

Career´s Expo

Last night which was the 29th of August, we had the Career´s Expo night, where we come and take a look and chat with the teachers who teach the different departments about what they do in that subject so that we can get a clear mindset of what subjects we want to take. It is really important for us because we are heading to NCEA next year and we need to make sure we pick the right subjects which we know about and the subjects that we know is most suitable for us as individuals. 
The highlight for me last night was getting to see all the different departments and what they teach and I think that it was really useful for me personally, mainly because of the fact that we are weeks away from Jumpstart, it's getting more freakier and scarier knowing that we are just weeks away from selecting our subjects and just weeks away from actually starting NCEA.
The department that I think stood out the most or the department that I think really presented their subject was Social S…

Week Two - Hot Cakes

Today is our cooking day in Food Technology. We had to make Hot Caked/Pancakes. Even though our Hot Cakes looks a bit burnt but I think we tried out best and even though all of our group were not participating, Saane and I tried our best to finish what Mrs. Tuipulotu told us to do. Out of 10, I think that we did about 8 because our Hotcakes were kind of burnt, one of our members weren't participating well enough but at least we made the product! I hope you enjoy my reflection on today's work. 

Japanese Visitors

Today some of us Yr10 students were hosting or showing these amazing Japanese Visitors around the school. There were about 26 of them and about 9 of us. (Magnolia, Rowana, Johnlee, John, Pote, Pareata, Jolise, Vasa, Levi and myself) As you can see in this photo there are 6 lovely young ladies, who came with the Japanese visitors and we were lucky to have these 6 ladies in our group. So we showed them around the school basically and we had great laughters at the end when we had the last break with them. One of my highlights was when Magnolia told them how many siblings she had (7) and they all were shocked because they only had 1 or 2 siblings. They all had great personalities and beautiful smiles! May the Lord continue to bless you with your journey through Auckland and may he protect you, also when yous head back to your hometown Tokoyo x  PC : Magnolia

Today in graphics we have been learning how to describe objects such as the shape, texture, form, people who use that object, size, flavour and many more !

We have been look at the TC SOLO and we are working on multiscructual (describing) This has been a great lesson with Ms Ferguson ! Here's a presentation of objects that my partner (magnolia) and I worked on, its not yet completed but hope you enjoy :-)
