Who am I?

Hi, my name is Leo and I am 14 years old who is currently the Manaiakalani Ambassador for Year 9. During the holidays, I will be commenting on the Summer Learning Journey but also for another project which led by Mrs. Apelu( So, I will be staying grounded while my family goes to AustraliašŸ˜¢šŸ˜¢). For Social Studies, I really liked the interaction with my class to the teacher because everyone was engaged, mainly when we had the sustainability unit, our class was having fun and co-operating with each other to finish their project. I don’t know what I disliked about Social Studies because our Teacher made everyone have fun.My favorite place in Sydney because the weather is dreadful but the scenery is beautiful.

Even though it seems like the end of the year(Literally is), we are introducing ourselves since most of us have a new teacher for Social Studies(Mrs. Gordon). We are able to write a paragraph or paragraphs about us ( What we are doing over the holidays and etc...).

Success to me?

I think I’ve been successful in helping out represent Tamaki College as a Year 9. From being the Manaiakalani Ambassador to also be a presenter at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. I felt successful because I had to chance to represent Tamaki as a Year 9 and have a chance to become confident with large crowds and also be able to socialize with other pupils of my cluster. Also, getting the chance to bond with other students from my school. For Social Studies( With Mrs. Gordon since we have started Jumpstart) we have started our Social Studies activities. We have begun with working with Business and what does success mean? It is going to be a really fun year in Social Studies.

So, as part of the Social Studies Revision. We were researching about the government( Which had been researching since term 2). Since the elections have finally finished, it is a good time to reflect back.

My bubble about Social Studies so far

Today, for Social Studies we went back to term 1 and researched about our Sustainability unit we had completed. My group had decided to do focus on Rain Garden thanks to Promiseland.
