Wesley College

Our school rugby tournament is going to be amazing experience at Wesley college ?

Tomorrow is our school rugby tournament at Wesley college. On the 23rd of September we are going to Wesley college to represent the East of Auckland. We are the only school team representing the East of Auckland at Wesley college. We are leaving school at 7:30 and will being heading towards Wesley college.

We have to get to school at 6:30 or 7:00am at the latest. We are going to be at Wesley college until 3:25pm. It is going to be an amazing experience for most of the boys because it could be the college were going to next year. We are going to play 10 minutes are half and we will be playing 7 or 6 teams at Wesley college which will be hard.

The reason why most boys are going to the Wesley college is either getting a day off school. Or trying to make it in to Wesley college. Wesley college is a good school to go to because you can get a lot of opportunities for your future or for getting in to a good rugby team like the all blacks.

Jonah Lomu use to play rugby and was amazing he was unbelievable he got a try with 5 men on him. Jonah Lomu came from wesley college in South side and got notice for rugby. Wesley college could be a big jump for most of our rugby team.

Cross Country

Cross country was awesome!

On Thursday the 11th of September, we had our school cross country. Cross country is a sport which is held every year from Year 1-13 until you finish college. In cross country you have to run in your year levels. If you're a boy you have to run with boys, and the same thing goes for the girls.
My friends and I were supporting our house team, as we were holding up our house flag. I am one of the house captains for Te Arawa team. As I was singing our chants for our school to learn, my house leader helpers sang along with me. All of team 5 had to do a 3km run. We had to run to the Pt England reserve and back twice.

My friends and I jogged during the cross country run because it was a long distance run. Cross country isn’t meant for everyone. Cross country is for people who are fast, fit, and who love running. We had to run the whole cross country without stopping or walking.

My friends and I waited for one another and had stayed together like family. We didn’t worry if we didn’t come 1st, 2nd or 3nd because we were having fun at the same time. We didn’t worry as much as we should have. Eventually we came 6th as a group (in a line) just jogging without stopping. But we still came a good place and had fun and that’s good enough for me.

My friends and I had jogged the whole cross country without stopping or walking. We had came 6th just jogging!!!! I had run with five of my closest friends and came a tie together. This is my last year at Pt England School and cross country will be another great memory.

plastic bags banned

Plastic bags should be banned in NZ because too many sea creatures are dying because of plastic. About 50% of sea creatures are eating plastic which people leave lying around without picking them up and putting it in the bin. People worldwide who are shopping use 500 billion plastic bags per year.

When plastic bags are left lying around it always ends up at a dump, the sea or in trees. Too many plastic bags are killing sea creatures which is destroying sea life. Sea creatures are dying from plastic bags because of they think it is food.
There are little pieces of plastic in the water because of sea turtles eating it which breaks it down into small pieces. Fish mostly die by is eating plastic or rubbish. When fish are found dead they take it to a special place for it to be opened. When they open the fish there a lot of rubbish and plastic inside the fish which show how the fish died.
Did you know New Zealand used's one billion plastic bags a year and its just in New Zealand. Another thing did you know is theirs was 5.6 billion plastic bags used in 2012. Every year there's a million of plastic and plastic bags found in the ocean.

30 other country have already ban plastic bags which leaves us behind. We should ban plastic bags because our 100% pure is at state and other country think New Zealand is a very clean green country. Marine biologists are complaining that too many fish and turtles are dying from plastic bags and should be banned.
