Niva Retimanu

Today Niva Retimanu came to our school and talked about her career. She works at the radio industry for 30 years and a samoan journalist and she was our Duffy Role Model. She also lived at Invercargill  in the south island and raised from Samoan parents.

After she introduced herself she read us a story called Kiss Kiss Yuck Yuck. The story was about a young named Andy and he was annoyed because every time a girl sees him she always kisses him. Everytime she kisses him he says ‘Yuck Yuck’.

Then Finally, Niva helped us present some duffy books to students in each class. We ended the duffy assembly by singing the duffy song and she left feeling happy and we really enjoyed getting to know her.

Bush Craft

On Wednesday the 23rd of August Glenbrae school 2017 year 7&8 had camp at Russell. My group which was group 1 did Bush craft with Michael because it was part of our activities for our year 7&8 camp near the campsite.

First thing I saw was a lot of ropes,bamboo sticks,tarpaulin, and pegs top teach us how to set up a tent. Michael taught us how to tightly tie up a knot then told us to listen carefully because we had to do it after him on a tree. So we picked our partners and chose a tree and tried a knot and we got it right on our 1st go. We both were proud that we got it so we continued to repeat it so it could be stuck in our head.

Next, Michael showed us how to tie a knot to a tree or bamboo for an example. So we had to repeat with our partners but we got a simple little mistake that made us get it wrong. But we tried again and we got the little mistake away and got it correct. So we did the same as the knot on the tree we started repeating it over and over again till it was stuck in out head.

Then Finally, he showed us how to set up a tent for the night that we’re going to sleep outside. So after about 30 minutes we setted up the tent and the good thing was we used all the knots that Michael showed us how to tighten stuff so the tent wouldn’t fall down.
