Recount Writing

My sister's birth

I have experienced many exciting things during my short lifetime such as bungee jumping it was an exhilarating experience, diving which was a frightening experience and many more . I have also missed out on things like going to Rainbows End, travelling out of New Zealand and many others, but one thing I’ve always been pleased about  was getting the opportunity to have a little sister. The moment that I saw her I knew that she was going to be an amazing little sister.

“Paige here is your new baby sister Mikyrah”. As my mum said that I felt joy jumping inside of me as if I had won the lottery!!!! I was given opportunity to hold my little sister who was sound asleep wrapped up in her silky white blanket. 5 minutes later mum took her off me and we had a family photo around her. After that we got to go home and enjoy Mikyrah for ourselves. Our journey home was bumpy as if we were driving  through a construction site which had large boulders. I looked out the tinted window to find that we were in fact driving on an uncompleted  road which was covered in rocks. I looked ahead to see a new smooth road. Within minutes we reached that new road. The rest of the ride home was peaceful as everybody had fallen asleep because the ride was long lasting.

2 hours later we finally reached our destination which was home. Our warm, cozy home. I jumped out of the back door of our black ford and darted to open the door as mum was holding baby. As I went to put the key in the door I was so unfocused had a liat I hit my head on the door is opened. I fell on the floor and my dad laughed which woke up Mikyrah.  She opened her big brown eyes and looked me straight in the eyes.

The next day we had thrown her a little party. Afterwards we left her to sleep. This experience was amazing

How to prevent yourself from contracting illness this winter

Image result for germsNobody really likes being sick. I know I don’t because when I am sick I can’t do as many things as normal. Why do people get sick? How do people get sick? Where does sickness come from? Hopefully this explanation can provide you with some helpful tips on how to keep you well this Winter.

Getting sick can come in many different ways such as the flu, cold or sometimes it can be worse - a terminal illness. In cases of viruses travelling around your body you can be admitted to hospital as the virus can take over your body.  Contracting sickness mostly occurs during the season of winter as the temperature can drop to about 3 - 4 degrees celsius during the evening in Auckland.

To help keep yourself well you need to eat well. If your body has a balanced diet with all the nutrient that you're body needs  it will be unlikely that you would get sick. Also cut down on sugary treats like chocolate, ice cream, cake, cookies, and. Did you know that if kids don’t eat right for upto three months they will have to be admitted into hospital where they will be fed through a tube.

Another way to keep well this winter is to stay warm. As you may already know Winter can get super cold especially when it gets to the evening. During the night in Auckland the temperature can drop down to 3 - 4 degrees celsius.  Becoming cold in the night can lead to contracting a flu or a cold. To prevent this illness you can make sure that when you go to bed all the windows in the house are closed, you have warm clothes on and most importantly you cover up.

Also keeping yourself well can include making sure that you have had you're flu shot. Flu shots cause serum to develop in you're body about two weeks after your shot. This serum can provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.

In conclusion, preventing yourself from catching illness simply means that you need too make sure that you stay warm, eat the right food, have your flu shot and give your body a good exercise when need. These undemanding steps can be the keys to your wellbeing this winter.

Ms Uninverse coming to Pt England School

Yesterday at 1pm Pt England School had very special visitors come. They were the 20 finalist for Miss Universe New Zealand. Miss Universe is an annual international beauty pageant that is run by the Miss Universe Organization. We had these people come to our school because even though they are competing in a beauty pageant they are rasing money for kids that don't have everything that they need. Miss Universe contestants are helping out kiwi kids who are on the waiting list for a kiwi kids sponsership. 

They came with there manager who was Jack Yan. The visitors were escorted to the staffroom. I had the privellege of going with them and filming there visit. As the girls sat down I got to know some of them. They were really cool. Today they are travelling into Manila,Phillipines to compete. The girls finished there beverages and we moved out of the staffroom and into the Tusitala room where the year 6 ambassadors talked to to them. 

The year 6 ambassadors gave a mihimihi of welcome to our visitors. They then talked about things that we do at our school. They showed archives and recent movies from the Manaiakalani Film festival held at Sylvia park. After the year 6 ambassadors an amabassador from variety came and takled to the girls about what they are fundraising for. She showeed a movie that was made to tell people that the kiwi kids sponsership. 

When she finished talking we moved onto the senior block where 3 girls talked to our senior block about being entrepreneur. A entrepreneur person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.About 15 miutes later the girls split into groups of 3 - 4 and put themselves in a classroom to explain futher. 

At the end of the day, before the girls left they took photos with classes. 
This experience was truly ammazing as we were the first school that they had visited. I am so thankful for the things that they are doing as they are not just thinking about themselves they are thinking all about others that are in need. These girls are kind,giving, loving and pretty. A piece of wisdom that i would take away from this experience would have to be that "Be lose because when you are lose you are yourself". They inspied me to be the best me I can be.
