The Power Of 40 (20 Hour Famine)

World Vision PES 20 hour famine team from SchoolTV on Vimeo.

"The Power Of 40!"
As the stars slowly began to rise the famine team (Extension Members) got the opportunity to sleep over at our school, Pt England. The extension members were doing the 20 Hour Famine. We are sleeping in the school library to raise funds for the children in Malawi. This money will go towards fresh water, better housing, nutritious food and a better school for their education. 

These children are unlucky because they have to travel far to find food and clean water. But here in NZ its right in front of us. For this reason I am doing the famine to experience what the Malawians go through everyday.

One interesting fact that I learnt from the 40 hour famine Ambassadors was that they told us, the toilets are just a hole in the ground, shared by over 100 people in the village. Another fascinating fact is that in some of the lakes there are crocodiles and the fish in Malawi is very delicious.

Down below is my family who are a part of who I am. Next is an image of God and this symbol means the most to me as he helps me to do well in everything I do, I also pray to him 24/7. Last but not least is an image of me.

Call Of Zombies Boat - Will It Float Or Sink?

Call Of Zombies Boat from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.
This is how you make a paddle boat out of cardboard. 

Step 1: Create two shapes out of cardboard 1 that look's like pant's.
Step 2: For the other piece of cardboard shape it into a house (this will be your base) but cut out room for the propeller (PANTS) at the bottom.
Step 3: Get a rubber band and wrap it around the base and the propeller
Step 4: Wind it up and let it go in the water and see if it will float or sink.

In Malawi the people there are unlucky because they eat the same thing everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner but here in New Zealand we have a variety of food to choose from. Like in New Zealand we can eat pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and many other things. But in Malawi they eat maise/maize which is a type of corn everyday for breakfast, they have boiled mice for lunch (Ewww!) and for dinner they have Nsima. Nsima is cassava root, corn plants and sorghum combined together. In NZ we have steak and mushroom sauce for lunch and for dinner we have butter chicken.

In New Zealand the cost of food is way more expensive than the food in Malawi. Why you might ask? Well its because in Malawi the type of food they eat is for free. The people there grow most of their food. Maize is the most popular because it can be grown anywhere and it can be easily harvested. Even children there plant and eat maize. I feel so sad for the Malawians because they have to wake up early around 6:00a.m and walk for 3 hours just to get to school.

I have come to know that children in Malawi don't have lots of nutritious food and clean water then us. That's why I want to raise money to help them to get those things. They have to walk to school which takes them 3 hours but here in NZ we have cars so we can drive to school.

My Nana's 60th Birthday

As the sun started to set, I lay down on the comfortable king size bed in one of the luxurious Skycity Hotel rooms. I watched the sevens rugby with my grandpa. NZL were playing FIJI and NZL won. After the game I fell asleep.

The next day I gave my Nana huge hug to say Happy Birthday. I also gave her a card with $500 inside it, thats a lot of money. When the clock struck 7:00 my nana, grandpa and I got changed to have breakfast at Fortuna to celebrate my nana’s 60th. After my grandparents and I got changed we headed down to the elevator and entered Fortuna.

“YUMMM!” I said in amazement. There were lots of food including bacon, hash browns, mushroom soup, scrambled eggs heaps of other delicious foods. As we ate the scrumptious food some of the Fortuna waiters sang Happy Birthday to my nana. I was singing to. My nana’s grin made me think it was one of her best birthday because they gave her a chocolate cake. I looked at the cake and it was huge. My nana, grandpa and I all dug in the cake and it was the best cake I have ever tasted. An hour passed and it was time for us to leave.

Celebrating my nana’s at Skycity was awesome. I loved all the scrumptious food. I hope this year I can have my birthday there.

Immersion Assembly

As I hopped out of the car I was excited to watch the performances at Immersion Assembly. Immersion Assembly is when the whole school gathers in the hall on the first day of the term. Our topic this term was I like to move it, move it. One of my favourite parts during assembly was Team 3’s performance.

Team 3 were talking about how light shines through glass and water, which bends the light and turns into a rainbow. So when someone looks at glass when light is shining on it they will see a rainbow. They also told us a interesting fact that light goes 300,000,000 meters per second. The next performance was our team, Team 4.

Team 4 asked questions about what will float and what will sink? The things that will float are big things like a stick, boat, cardboard and many other things. Things that will sink are small things like a marble, paperclip etc.
I am excited this term because I can’t wait to learn why things float and how things sink.
