Aroha's way


Aroha ventures into the forest and experiences feelings of depression and happiness.

Aroha ran free with the wind, her hair swaying on her back feeling peaceful hearing the birds twirp above her.  Aroha's friends were chasing her through the tall old trees, Aroha however ran so far through the forest her friends didn't know where she went...they thought she disappeared and began searching.

Aroha suddenly stepped wondering why her friends weren't there, her mind came into thoughts everything coming closer and closer. She starts to feel lonely & hopeless while tall old trees and bushes surround her. Aroha lays against a tree feeling tied down crying, saying pessimistic words to herself, her feelings of being free and at peace are broken.

Aroha got up and thought everything straight breathed in and out, she heard a slight voice calling her name. It was Aroha’s friends asking where she was, she began to be hopeful and calm.  Her friends took her by the sea, Aroha exhaled deeply and overcame her fears.

Diary Entry

Tis is a diary entry I have written as part of drama using the story 'Mophead' by Selina Tusitala Marsh


Today I went to a restorative justice meeting ....The bully got justice once and for all.  Both of our families sat face to face. Nervous shocks ran up and down my body as the bully confessed and apologised. My Mum & Dad and the rest of my family were sitting there shocked and furious with what the bully had done to me. It was my turn to speak and I said the same thing the bully had said, I left afterwards feeling happy because now I could live normally without any disturbance and be free forever.

A way to paradise

Possum life in Australia is hard for them because they have predators that keeps the possum population stable. Possum life in New Zealand is different because there are no predators that hunt for possums so they breed and breed and the population of possums explodes in NZ.

Bird watchers - drama

Yesterday, for drama we began a study on Rapunzel.  Instead of reading the story we had to design an article to support a 10 second drama around different artefacts associated with the Fairy Tale.  The artefacts consisted of black cape, bird/nest necklace, padlock and key and lastly a golden crown.

Here is the article my group constructed around the artefact our group chose.
