We Are The World Haiti

In the Christmas holidays Haiti had an earthquake and thousands of people died. It happened on the 12th of January 2010. Haiti turned into a disaster zone. It was so sad that they showed it all over the news. While I watched it I saw people with no food, water and shelter. They had no choice but to sleep where ever they could. One amazing thing was that some survivors lasted over a week.

So lots of good singers made a new version of "We Are The World" to raise lots of money to help the people of Haiti. The song was originally made before I was born by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.

I really liked the new version because some of my favourite singers were in it, such as Usher, Justin Bieber, Micheal Jackson, Wyclef and others. I liked Wyclef because his voice sounded very cool. Did you know that he is from Haiti?

I hope the song makes stacks of money to help Haiti. So if you want to see the new version of the song go on Youtube and look up "We Are The World" Haiti.

Room 15 have been finding out about the Early Europeans who came to NZ. We read about the Whalers and Sealers, Missionaries, Settlers and Traders. We wrote scripts as if we were one of these people and recorded our scripts with our animations of the European ships arriving in NZ playing in the background. Mine is one of the ones that was finished and played on P.E.N.N. -our school news programme

My Family Walk

After Shortland Street had finished my family and I went for a walk around the block. While we were walking I was playing with a rugby ball. I threw it up in the air but when it came down I dropped it, and it nearly went on the road. My mum said ''Kingston get the ball'' so I ran for the ball and got it. While walking around the block I was getting puffed out because I kept having to run and catch up with my family.

When we got to Ruapotaka my family stopped for the twins because something was wrong with the pram. But I kept walking and while I was walking I was singing a song called 'Black Box'. It is sung by a person who won Australian Idol and his name is Stan Walker.

Suddenly it came to a point when I had to stop because I was a bit too far away from my family. So I waited for them to catch up. Just when we were about to walk round Glen Innes my brother Jordan asked me if I wanted to have a race with him, but I said ''no'' because I knew I was going to lose.

When we got to Court Cres my brother asked me if I wanted to have another race. I said ''no'' again, but my brother just sprinted off. While he was running I was trying to run with him too but I couldn't. So I just walked with shame. Nah I'm just lying, but I was tired. Finally I got home and I was happy. I waited for the rest of my family to get home. Suddenly they turned up and we stretched. Even though I was tired I still had a good walk.
