Tonga's aftermath

Tonga’s aftermath

Tonga climbed the ladder all the way to the world cup semi finals for the first time in history. Tongan fans had followed the Tongan rugby league team since the very beginning.

I have enjoyed watching Tonga’s success because they achieved their personal best in their history. Tonga maybe a small country but they do have hundreds and thousands of fans, who support them all the way and even when we loose the celebration never ends.

Tonga is a proud country where people can be crazy or sensitive. Tonga was always looked down on, but this was Tongas time to rise and show them what Tonga was made of and how crazy the supporters were and/or is now.

Tonga has been one of the most clinical teams of the tournament completing over 80 percent of their sets in the past three games. Throughout the tournament they’ve played for a full 80 minutes and they never given up. This is a really memorable game to remember because it's the first time since the warriors inaugural NRL season 22 years ago, Tonga’s supporters have flooded Mt Smart stadium.

It was a hard loss to take but we were very proud of our Tongan team. This has helped me as a young person to never give up even when things are hard. It’s made me remember where I come from and who I represent.

Explanation Writing

WALT: Take care of the little things in your writing.


Athletics is a day of fun sports and games. The point of athletics is having fun and trying hard to be successful in a category. Coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd is a step closer to success and also going to eastern zone, for a challenge.

Do you have a goal that you want to achieve and make your personal best?
Well, today I am going to share with you about how to receive a personal best in high jump. Here is three qualities you may need to think about before attempting high jump.

High jump obviously includes jumping, and there is steps to winning a successful jump. First is your run up. Most people run up from the centre of the bar at 7 - 9 paces. You have to measure your jump and your timing right.

Secondly is your mindset. It’s really easy to make a plan of jumping the 1.95m, 1.98m, 2.01m, 2.04m, but you have to know where your mind sets and where your feet lifts off. So you got to measure your steps and left off.

Thirdly is patience. You have to be patience and do the training to learn what you are doing wrong and think of how to do it right. Patience is the ability suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay.

This may or may not help you in high jump and it will work on different people. Sometimes you need to take games and sports in a fun way and know when to take it serious. :)

Guest Speaker

This morning we had a special visitor, who came in for a special talk about our future. His name is Mr Patterson and he works with year 9's achieve their goals and dreams.

One important thing I took away from his presentation, was to be a giver and not a taker. What is a giver? A giver is when you care about others and yourself. Than what is a taker? A taker is when people who just want to keep things for themselves and not for others. 

A experience he shared with us was about, a 11 year old boy and his name is Willie. Willie was just casually walking to school one day and meet a homeless man who was crying. He stopped by the homeless man and gave him his lunch and lunch money for two weeks. After a while the homeless man now has his own job and has his own home. 

Mr Patterson is a inspiration to students, and he helps others achieve their goals and dreams.
