Distinction Evidence: Deputy Head Girl 9

The other day I had Student Council. We talked about the mufti day we will be having and what the theme will be, we decided on sports stars. We also decided that the pet would be changed to another date which we would discuss with Mrs Trotter. Then we came up with some ideas for the fun day at the end of the year, we only included the ideas that would actually be able to happen. 

Below is the minutes that I took for the meeting. We didn't have Mrs Trotter there with us because she was busy, instead Miss Hall joined us. We also didn't have any homework for this meeting because we didn't talk about anything new. But we told the students to tell the class about the fun day and the mufti day theme.

26 Oct:
What we did:
We are changing the date for the pet day (to be decided)
Themed Mufti Day Idea:
Sports/Sports Star
Fun day at the end of the year:

The care value I showed was respect because I showed respect to the people talking.
I showed leadership by sharing my ideas.
I was a role model by not talking while other people were talking.

Parliment

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • The Speaker of the house is called David Carter
  • The Sergeant-of-arms carries the mass
  • The Deputy Prime Minister sits in the 3rd seat

Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.

Distinction Evidence: Technology 5

On Tuesday the year 7&8's went to Technology. When I was on the bus I made sure that I was quiet and that I was only talking to the person next to me not anyone else. 

Once we got to Lincoln we went to the Woodworks room and got our stuff ready. Then we did some sanding before we left for Mandarin. 

After that we left for Mandarin and revisited some of the things we learnt in the past and learnt how to say what is there name in Mandarin.  

After Mandarin Mr Bowers attached our table top to the legs and told us to sand over the bit the he sanded. He also taught us how to beeswax. The beeswax smell like gas but when we put it on the wood it didn't smell and it actually made the table shiny. 

After we were done we packed up and then we got to take our table home with us on
the bus and headed back to school. I made sure I was only talking to the person next to me and whispering. 

The care value I was showing was Respect because I respected the bus driver when I was on the bus. 
I showed leadership by helping others with the beeswax. 
I was being a good role by not talking to people that weren't sitting next to me on the bus. 

Distinction Evidence: Kapa Haka 9

Yesterday I had Kapa Haka. I turned up with my poi even though I didn't think I needed it. When we got there we got in our lines. Then the teachers talked to us about how they were going to change our lines up, so instead of lining up in age groups we were lining up in height. So four year eights stood in the centre in a line, I was one of them. Then they got everyone else to line up on each side height wise. 

After we sorted out the lines, the boys went on the stage and the girls went underneath the stage. Then we went through the the songs, I knew all of them but one because I was away the week before. 

We went through the whole routine then when we finished, the teachers told us that we were going to perform at the Gala, the Senoir Citizens Concert and possibly the Prize Giving.

After that they told us that we could leave. 

The care value I showed was respect by listening to the teacher.
I showed leadership by listening to the teachers when the were showing us where to stand. 
I was a role model by not talking over top of the teachers.

Distinction Evidence: Deputy Head Girl 8

On Monday this week I had a meeting with Mrs Trotter (the principal) and the other heads. It was at 11:00, that's at morning tea, so we brought our food with us. 

We talked about the mufti day and just if we were going to have face painting and stuff like that. 

After that Mrs Trotter told us about the student council photo that we took and asked us to get the names of all of the student council members. We started to do the top row because they were all year seven and eights. Then when we got to the second row we didn't know there names so we decided to go back to class and leave it for later. 

After a while Hannah and I decided to go around the classes and get there student council members names. Hannah held the photo and I had a paper and pen so I could write the names. We went around all of the classes and got all of the names. 

Once we were done we took it back to the office.  

The care value I showed was excellence because I decided that we should get it done before we forget. 
I showed leadership by turning up to the meeting. 
I was a role model by listening to the principal while she was talking.

Distinction Evidence: Technology 4

On Tuesday the year 7&8's went to Technology. When I was on the bus I made sure that I was quiet and that I was only talking to the person next to me not others around me. 

Once we got to Technology we went to the Woodworks room and got our stuff out. Then we did some sanding before we left to go to Mandarin. 

After that we left for Mandarin and revisited some of the things we learnt in the past and played a game where we had characters and we said 'there name is _____' in Mandarin.  

After Mandarin Mr Bowers attached all of our table legs together and gave us some little wooden stub things to put in the holes that the nails were in. We had to hammer them in and it was really hard because you had to position it perfectly and if you hammered the wrong place it would damage your table, so we helped each other. Once we did that Mr Bowers sanded the ends off so it wasn't sticking out.

After we were done we packed up and then got on the bus and headed back to school. I made sure I was only talking to the person next to me and using a quiet voice.

The care value I was showing was Respect because I respected the bus driver when I was on there bus.  
I showed leadership by helping others with the hammering. 
I was being a good role by not talking to people that weren't on my seat on the bus.
