Highlights for this Term (1)

This term was action packed with lots of excitement going around. We have had lot's off exciting activities such as camps and video conferences. And outside school, services and birthdays. In Poly fest my cousin got 2nd, for "Best Manaia" too. The extension group also got to talk to a famous man called D'wayne Edwards. When I heard about this video conference, I thought D'wayne was going to talk a lot about shoes. But when the time came, all he really talked about was his journey and his motivation. Which I think was actually better that talking about shoes. Incase you don't know, D'wayne Edwards is the head designer of NIKE. He's designed shoes, tee shirts and also some fancy caps. This year we are joining in a project called Walk our world (WOW). As part of this we also get to walk all around the world. This term has been really cool and even though it is the quarter of the whole year it just might be the best.


  1. It is hard to believe that Term 1 is almost over. I guess it's gone so fast because it has been jamb packed with so many interesting learning experiences.
    But tell me Erene, are you really going to walk all around the world? Do you have to do fitness training first? What do you do when you get to the ocean? How much food do you have to pack? It certainly sounds like a huge WOW to me!
    Please post more details, I'm fascinated to hear more.

  2. Hey Erene

  3. Talofa Erene, I agree with you that this has been a very exciting term. It's been great to see you take charge - working hard in extension this term. I also agree with what you wrote about D'Wayne Edwards. His shoes were exciting -then we got more. His life journey and the way he shared it with us was inspirational. I hope you enjoy your break, I'm sure I'll be seeing you soon. Keep it going Erene!

  4. Hey Matthew
    Yes I did enjoy term 1 and yes I did enjoy the conference with D'wayne. I think that we are really lucky to talk to a man like him. Although it was busy and we had our ups and downs, it was fun to share the term with you and all my friends.

  5. Hi Erene,
    I really like your work and I am proud to see that you are posting a lot of posts this term!!!
    Keep up the good work.
