Holiday writing

My awesome holiday highlights. I got to  ride a Dirt Bike for the first time in my whole entire life. It was so cool. First my friend taught me how to ride it and how to start it. After that I rode away in style. My other highlight was going shopping with my mum to get my Birthday present.

My lowlight was staying home and doing nothing it was so boring I was just thinking of something to do. This was my lowlight because is was so BORING.

My dream holiday would be to travel all around the world and meet all the famous graffiti artist and have them teach me these techniques also paint with them. And come back to NEW ZEALAND.

Circle the gifts that the Holy Spirit brings people at Baptism

belief in God        the Bible    the Eucharist    hope in God   
faith makes them sons and daughters of God            help to live with the love of Christ

Match column one with column two
Original sin-weakened human nature            

Personal sin-knowing yet choosing to do something                                                                      

Faith - Whakapono-helps people trust in God’s goodness                                                                             

Hope - Tu- manako-helps people know and love God

Look up these Scripture references in the Bible and match them with the sentence that best fits the text
John 14:17 -* You can know the Spirit because the Spirit lives with you and is in you.

Galatians 4:6 -  *Since you are children God has sent the Spirit to live in you.

1 Corinthians 6:19 -  * Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit - Te Wairua Tapu   

 Finish these sentences:
To be a child of God means you are part of his family.

The Holy Spirit helps people to turn away from sin.

One way children can show love - aroha is by caring for each other and treating others the way you want to be treated.

Nicksons vist

On Wednesday we were lucky to have a visit from Nickson From Mai Fm. He came to tell us about what it is like to work at a radio station.

First we started with a prayer.Then he told us about working at a radio station. He also asked some questions and recorded it on his awesome looking phone. He asked us what kind of songs do they play on Mai Fm. Taiwan said that they play One Direction songs. Then he started laughing and asked him to sing a little bit of the song.

He told us that they only play 170 songs a per week. Also that he gets up very early in the morning. He said he gets up at 3.30am in the morning. I can't believe he gets up that early. I can't even get up that early.

He has worked at 5 different radio stations in 7 years. He said that his friend Toast always walks around on cold days in shorts and jandals.

His other friend Nate always gets him into trouble at work. When he was a primary school he never got bullied. He also said look for a job with heaps of money.I really enjoyed his visit.

He made a man see.

Jesus heals a boy with a demon.
Jesus died for our sin
He washed the disciples feet.

Jesus looked after us.
Died for us.

He spent 40 days and nights in the desert.
Jesus had the last supper

-So we can be like him
-For our sin
-He obeyed god's rules

Dear Miss Leaupepe
My name is Dalaney Pihigia I am a 12 year old boy.I am a Niuean boy.I was born in Auckland New Zealand. I am from my dad’s side of the family.  I am looking forward to learning heaps of things this year. I also get distracted easily.|

I have 2 sisters. They are pretty annoying especially my little sister named Katelyn she is 7 years old.Which means she is 7 times more  annoying. Second sister is Nicole she is 17  years and is going to university this year I hope she does good .I have heaps of cousins.

The best thing i like to do is to go fishing. I also like watching movies,playing rugby and mustang cars. That is my dream car.My mum’s cooking is the best.I also like boxing. My favourite food is called dakihi it is a food that Niuean people eat all the time. The things that i don't like are people  who annoy me and I dislike kiwi fruit.

My goal for this is to get better at my maths on go on to a higher level and to not get distracted easily.I am looking forward to have you teaching me this year.
Yours sincerely,Dalaney
