My Samoan Holiday by Matthew


On Wednesday I went with my brother and Dad to Samoa. Then we went in the big van to my Village. I went to the main gate. Then we went  into the house. We are sleeping in the morning. When we wake up, we went to the island and we played a game called dare. I ran into the sea and I found a necklace. Then I went to the shower. I put on my clothes and we went to the next island and  I had a swim with my dad and my family.  We played volleyball on the sand, after that we went to my Mum’s Island. Then I went to visit my cousin and we played tag. It was so cool being back together with my cousins. I had lots of fun with my cousin

Paralympics by Joel

On Friday we went to the Waterfront next to the CBD in Auckland. We went there to watch the Paralympics. We went into the fish market. They had a big TV with a fanzone. We saw the swimming event. Some one from the NZ team called Rebecca Dubber won a bronze medal. We had some food in the cafe. I had juice and chicken nuggets. After that we went to the waterfront bridge. It was big and it opens and closes. When it opens it goes up and when it closes it goes down. It has to let the boats go through it. Next we saw the boats and we saw the little library. Then we went over to the playground. I saw where my dad works. He works in a black building next to the Sky Tower. After that we went back to school for lunch. It was a really fun and a nice day.
