The Treasure Box - Drama Class

This is an interpretation of what Iv'e learnt so far from drama class from the book called 'The Treasure Box'

The Book was about a library that has caught on fire, and it was about a young boy and his dad that came home with a book that he was able to get and showed it to his son, The dad said "This is more precious than gold, ruby's and more precious than silver the dad explained." and put it inside a box and called it "The Treasure Box."

New Blog Profile 2019

Hello, My name is Jeremiah and I am a Yr 7 student at
Saint Patrick's school in Panmure. We have been learning how to be a
smart learner in Cybersmart.

My favourite sport is Soccer. The thing I like about it is being a goal keeper.

What I am looking forward to this year is playing with my friends and learning
all new subjects. As a learner I do a lot of work (but not all the time).
The thing I enjoy is my math. I love math even when it is hard I try my best
to get it right. My goal for 2019 is to succeed in math.

My favourite bird is a Golden Eagle. I like them because they are big
and fast.


My achievements for this year are participating in outdoor and indoor
activities and putting my skill into education so I can succeed
in my year at Saint Patricks, and also to learn my x9
tables.

Celebrations in New Zealand for Matariki, Celebrating 3Matariki is gathering whanau (family) and reflecting on the past.  The festival’s connection to the stars provided an opportunity for families to remember their whakapapa(genealogy) and those ancestors who had passed away to the heavens. Offerings were made to land-based gods who would help provide good crops, and new trees were planted to signal new beginnings.
Many of these traditional celebrations are still practiced today, however there are many others ways that Matariki is celebrated also. Most celebrations focus around music, song, dance, food and family, and celebrations can last up to 3 days.

In the city streets
Vehicles engines smoking 
Poisoning the earth
