Te Hapua Excellence. # 3

This week everyone class in the year 7/8 hub moved to a new group for either Te Hapua,Buddy program or garden to table.I was In term 1 Buddy program and have now moved to Te Hapua;in Te Hapua we learn about robotics and coding.We get divided in to two groups and for four weeks each we stars by either going to coding or robotics and then switch around.My first four weeks is going to be in coding.At first I thought that coding was going to be very boring and hard to do.But as I learnt more and more,I found it quite interesting for the first week we had to make a small digital presentation were we had to make it so it told people about us and our hobbies.The website we used to make this is a coding website called Scratch.I really enjoyed it although I did fid it a little bit difficult as I am not very good with computer related stuff.



The care value I showed was Respect as I  respected our teacher who was Helen who is going to be teaching us for the remaining three weeks

Peer mediation #3

This week for peer mediation Milan,Andrei and I had our duty on the second half of Wednesday lunch.We had to change our days as My class (room 27 ) had Te Hapua every Friday which was my original day I was normally on.This week only Milan and I did it because Andrei did not show up; we got our vest and lanyards from the previous group and started to walk around.We mostly try walk near the junior area because, it is a area where we mostly get our problem and we barely get any around the kauri area.We got pretty much no problems to deal with but just got the odd couple of kids asking us to solve a problem like someone saying that this person is behind the classrooms and it was easy as saying just not to go there.

This week I showed TRUSTWORTHY because I showed up on time for my duty and did it,this shows trustworthiness as the teachers trust us to do our duty.

Evaluate statistical investigations or probability activities

In Maths we have been learning to:


  • Evaluate statistical investigations or probability activities undertaken by others including data collection methods, choice of methods and validity of findings.


Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.


Here is some evidence of my learning.





A part of this learning that I found challenging was The extend Abstract task as It took me a while to understand some of the questions. But overall I find it was not to difficult,The only thing I did not understand was firstly explaining the how the statistics quoted against the raw data.But overall I think the IXL activities were really helpful.


My next step is to continue to apply this knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.

Current events term 1



Current Events Term 1


In Current Events I covered these topics:
  • The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council.
  • Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan
  • Christchurch Earth Memorial
  • The new Ngā Puna Wai Sports Facility
  • The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan with a submission to the council.


My favourite topic was The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.because we could think creatively put our ideas forward and think about something were we don't have any restrictions e.g design a mall.So that is why this was my favourite.


Here is the Link the Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.
