Communication of Saints

On This side this is Saint Christopher. When we are going on a journey to a country, then we can pray to him and he will keep us safe on our journey.

My testing week :)

For the last 5 days I have been doing lots of testing. At first it all felt hard practising, but it was all worth it. I was happy with my gloss test because I came out in Stage 6 to 7. I was so happy with my spelling because I have done more than last year. 

I think I have been doing very well in my testing's.

Cross Country Report
Opening Statement :
Cross Country at St Pius X is a day of running.  Cross country started at 1.30 in the afternoon, the whole school gathered in the school tennis courts.  The races were just about to begin.  The first load of runners were getting ready.  
Paragraph one / first aspect of the Event - Cross Country :
The 12 and 13 year olds started first with their run,  then it went on from the 11 years olds down to the 5 year olds. But of course the senior and junior syndicate had totally different courses.  `Each age group from the senior syndicate went straight after each other.
Paragraph two - Second aspect of the Event
The starting point was at the back of the church in front of the school office.  
Each student of each age group stood at the starting line waiting for the big BANG for them to all start running. Most of them jogged down the hill and carried on until they reached the hill and started walking.
Final Paragraph - Last aspect
The senior syndicate had finally finished all their laps and it was up to the junior syndicate to start with their races.  The junior age groups went from 8 to 5 year olds. It went 8 year old boys then 8 year old girls, it was the same for all the junior age groups. Cross country was almost finished it was just up to the 5 year old boys and girls. The last race was very fierce for the 5 year olds, everyone of them were catching up with each other and there was a lot of speed in them. Although the course was really small, the course for the juniors was just around the school field but the senior course was 2 rounds around the block.

Description about my Father

My father means the world to me.   He has white and black hair.   He is kind of roundish, He is short ,strong and handsome.   My Father has curly straight hair and is really holy.   My Father has brown outlines on his eyes and has beautiful dark brown eyes.   My Father is brownish .
I love my Father because he is very humble and a very wise man.   My Father really loves reading , he says that if we keep reading alot then we will understand our Maths , Religious Education , Spelling, Writing and lastly Reading.   He is very good at singing and playing guitar.   My Father really likes Maths but most of all he likes Music.

When the house is messy My father would get really really angry.   He is a really tidy man.   When My Father smiles and laughs that means its a sign of happiness, But when he is telling me a really sad story of when his Grandmother died I can tell that he is sad because his dark brown eyes start to get watery.

My Father can be a angry, happy and sad but no one in this world can ever replace my Father.   That is why my Father is really awesome

Swimming Experience

Splish! Splash! This was My first swimming experience at Saint Pius X this term. When I walked inside the pool I could feel the water climbing up my body. It felt so cold, but I survived. Mrs Tui game everybody a number. I was the number 5. Mrs Tui called our number one by one, When it got to my turn I had to do a streamline. I had a really fun time. Especially when I had free time for only two minutes. My hardest lesson was when I had to do freestyle, But one day I will know how to freestyle. This Experience was really fun.
