WALT show smart relationship qualities

Today in cyber smart we were focusing on showing smart relationship qualities. Our challenge was to make the tallest structure out of edible food.
Criteria: 10 minutes of planning, 10 minutes of building. The tower has to be free standing and we could only use 12 spaghetti sticks and 8 marshmallows.

My partner was Mikey and our group name was "Friendship." We had quite a good plan I thought because if you put 4 marshmallows on the bottom and build up then the tower will be quite stable.
After 10 minutes we had to stop and Mrs Collins measured everyone's tower. Ours was 31cm high but the winners one was 36cm.
It was a good exercise and we learned to work together.

My Digital Footprint

My Digital Footprint

This is my digital footprint which tells people whether my internet use is positive or negative. Mrs Collins rated me 50% which she said was quite good because I am using some good sites but maybe too many game sites. 
                                   St Patrick' Day

On Monday had St Patrick day because it was his feast day. It was fun and the best day ever. Early in the morning the whole school went to mass. Later we were sorted into teams and mine was the Shamrock. Our first activity was 'Capture the flag' but unfortunately we lost.
We had lunch together and then in the afternoon we did some St Patrick's activities. 

Catholic Schools' Day


                                                         Catholic Schools' Day

Last Tuesday we had Catholics Schools' day and St Ignatius and St Pius x (x means 10th) came to our school. The whole school was so excited to meet the other schools so many children ran down to the gate. Luckily the duty teacher  heard the loud screaming and she ran to stop them from going out of the school grounds.
We all went to mass and St Ignatius is such a big school that they took up ALL the pews on the left side of the church. There were three priests instead of one. After mass Room 4 from St Pius did a liturgical dance.
We all went back to school but the weather was not very good. It was so cold and rainy outside, so we didn't get to do our tabloid sports. We were sad because we wanted to play against the other schools. They had to leave early on the buses.

Tika, Pono, Aroha

We have been learning how Jesus respected the tapu (sacredness) of people.
One day when Jesus was going back to Galilee, he met a Samaritan woman at a well. He asked her for some water but he wasn't meant to talk to her because she was a Samaritan and he was Jewish and Jewish people hated Samaritans at that time. 
Another story we read about how Jesus treated people was when he healed a man with leprosy, which is a skin disease with lots of sores and is very contagious. Jesus spoke to him and spent time with him before he healed him. 
This shows that Jesus showed love (aroha) and compassion to people who were not accepted by others because of their looks and identity. 
I learn from these stories that I must respect the tapu of others even though they are not like me because God loves everyone the same amount and we are born in the image of God.
