How to survive the school holidays

How to survive the school holidays

Every year every school gets holidays which means they go off school for 2 weeks or more. Everyone loves the holidays because you don’t have to do work or listen to the teachers, Glenbrae Skids is doing fun activities and you are more welcome to come.

In the holidays if you are bored you can just go on
  • Youtube/T.v ( i suggest watching scary videos and if your watching T.v watch cartoon network or home and away because it’s a lit tv programme and i suggest staying up until 3am so that you can play the ouija board )  
  • Play game ( play gta5, rugby, nba 2k12, modern warfare 3 and every game because all the games a lit and you can play it all night but only if you own the games or a playstation, if you don’t own one go play outside or play fun activities with your siblings )
  • Fun activities/Carnivals/Fun places/Movies ( You could play games in your backyard with your siblings or even ask your parents to go to Carnivals or Fun places like Jump and Rainbow's end or even carnivals and ride the roller coasters or go to the movies and watch a movie you've been wanting to see in ages )

TECH_ART

Today the year 7 and 8's had tech. We had a little play around while we go to our classes and learn what we have been doing. After that we were getting prepared for our tech classes. We went into our classes and we had our wonderful teacher Matua Brent. Matua Brent was demonstrating on what we did last week Friday. We were telling him the steps on what we have been drawing and it was a Wheku, a wheku is a craved head piece and it is a Maori face. We were learning how to draw the Wheku step by step.  We then had to draw another Maori face which was also called a Wheku, but a different shape of head. This time is was a little challenging for us because we had to curve the head which was pretty hard. Some of the students had got the curve right and some well...they still had to practise until they get it right. We had to do a half a face and when we are done with that half we have to do a mirror side of the face. We were practising for ages until we all had it right. We did the same drawing on the cardboard and we did it really good on cardboard...Maybe it was easier for us to draw it on cardboard. Metua brent was showing us some Maori faces in pictures and was talking about their tribe and what they do even how they were craved. We all finished and we went to line up with the Year 8's and we all went to school with what we learnt....
