My Why Poem

This is a poem that I wrote about my memories and life treasures that happened to me in both the past and the present. This poem makes me remember my loved ones in many different ways. Limy first family photo. I admit, some moments were sad and some were good. This poem helped me show my life journeys in a different way.


Stations Of The Cross

Have you ever been a part of Stations of the Cross in your School before? Last week we experienced it as a class. Every year my School in Term 1 reenacts the time Jesus died for us; a play called Stations Of The Cross. I played a woman called Veronica, the woman who wiped the blood, sweat, and tears off Jesus before he was about to be  crucified. I enjoyed being Veronica, it was mostly about being in the costumes that made it more exciting. It felt like I was really there experiencing everything that was happening.


The end of the play was silent until the singing, where Daniel sang ‘Were You There.’ This was the perfect way to an ending. All I heard was silence and his beautiful glorious voice.


On Tuesday March 12 2024 my class went to  Akarana Yacht Club to go sailing in Okahu Bay. It was part of the New Navigators programme and our instructors’ names were Hattie, Lola, Jake, Nico, and Kim. All of them were really fun to be with. They gave us special gear for when we were to get into the water so we wouldn’t get cold or drown! It was a helmet, rash shirt, waterproof jacket, and a life vest. 


The first boat I got to be in was a speed boat. It was really fun. I had an instructor and my teacher with me. They also gave me a water gun which I used to squirt all my classmates as they sailed around. My second boat was called an Optimist boat. I got to sail in the boat by myself. It was scary at first but I got used to it and had fun. The last boat I had been on was called a Quest. It was like the Optimist boat but a bigger version of it. It was exciting when I was on the Quest boat especially while using the water guns.


It was perfect weather that day. It wasn’t too sunny or too rainy. The current wasn’t too strong, just calm and that helped me a lot when I was sailing by myself. 


The last activity we did was swimming in the sea. All of us had to jump in the water off the pontoon. Some people didn’t know how to swim or were scared but it wasn’t a problem since we had life vests on. We finished all the activities and that’s all we did. It was such a nice experience. I’m very thankful that my class got to go sailing. Thank you to St John’s Rotary for sponsoring our class giving us the opportunity to experience sailing. 


Making Lent Meaningful

I chose this photo for lent because it makes me remember that you can fast and give up some of the bad things in your life even when the 40 days of Lent are done. It makes me feel like I can still do good things in my everyday life to continue changing and becoming better.

Pope Francis

Pope Francis was born on 17 December 1936 in Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina. We call him Pope Francis but his full name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Why doesn’t his name have Francis? He chose his name in of Saint Francis Of Assisi who lived a humble life and dedicated it to the poor.


 Pope Francis is 87 years old and is famous for his humility and concern for the poor.  Pope Francis also loves to communicate with younger children and one funny thing he does is that he likes to take selfies of himself. Before he became a Priest and then a Pope he was a seminary teacher and bouncer. He graduated studying German Technology. Pope Francis was also a janitor when he was a teenager.


Did you know that the leader of the Church may live in the magnificent Vatican City but he chooses not to. He has no possessions. His declaration of poverty deprives him of all material possessions.


      Pope Francis encourages young and old people to restore hope and to be open to the future, to spread love just like how Jesus loves us. He spreads the word of God to both young and old.


My Backpack For Lent

What would I take on my Lenten Journey. I decided to bring clothes for people who may be cold. I also packed a Bible so I can read and always communicate with God. Money, so I can give it to the poor. Sanitiser, so I can always be safe from the Bactria that surrounds me. Healthy food and water for those who are hungry and thirsty…including me.

Who Is Euphrasie Barbier?

My first blog in Room 8, 2024 is about Euphrasie Barbier and how she used her qualities and attitude to change other people’s lives. As a child she was known for being a stubborn girl and not agreeing with the men of the Church. When she grew up she decided to travel the world and to be a Nun so that she could speak for people who are unheard  or in need. She is the founder of a group called  The Mission Sisters.

My Manaiakalani Film Recount


In the Morning we had some time to play for a while because the bell still hadn’t ring. We had an early Morning tea so we could be in the theatre in time. When morning tea was finished the teachers made sure that we did everything before we left. They made us line up in the top court then got paired up to some kids to look after.


There were two buses for the whole school to use. It was mixed up but there were three teachers each to look after us. When we arrived in the theatre we saw a lot of other schools. Some of them were even smiling at us and some just ignored us.


We got seated in our seats and got to see our other Schools’ presentations. Some of them were really funny and some were also good ones. It was really fun watching other School’s presentations and my School’s one too. The videos ended and we got lined up then went back to the bus.


I was just talking with the kid that I was looking after and with my other friends also. We arrived back to School and just had lunch. When we got back to class we watched some more movies. We even commented on some of the movies. We cleaned up and that’s how my day ended.


My Passion Project

My Passion Project


This is my first passion project this year that I’m working on by myself. It’s about superstitions in my country. I’m still working on it but I’m enjoying it. Because I get to share the beliefs of my country to others that might really like it.


I started the  passion project because a lot of people would always ask me about Filipino superstitions. So to make it easier for them I just made a slide of it. Because sometimes it’s a bit tiring to keep explaining and explaining to people.
