Reflection 2011

My name is Brandy. I have been in St Pius for a year now.  I think this year has been the bestest year in my learning life because I'm nearly at where I'm supposed to be.  My class has been very supportive even though we fight most of the time.  We managed to talk it out and sort it.  I have learnt lots of new things at St Pius. I learnt that Jesus came down to earth to show us how to be virtues people.  I also learnt how to swim.

I am really sad that I'm leaving St Pius.

Rangitoto Island

On Friday Room 7 from Saint Pius X School went on a trip to Rangitoto Island for their Activity Week.

At about 8:00 a.m, we walked to the station to catch our 8:30 a.m train to Britomart.  When we arrived, we had to walk to the ferry terminal to catch our 9:15 ferry to Rangitoto Island.  After the short ride we finally arrived at Rangitoto Island.   

My mouth dropped when I saw how tall the mountain was.  At first I thought it was easy then we had to go up the stairs that's when I struggled because my legs were sore and tired.   After the long walk  I finally arrived on top. The view was magnificent.  We ate our lunch and took a class photo.

Finally we had to walk back down. I kept on slipping because it was steep.  It wasn't really that hard but it was very hot with the sun steaming brightly.

I really had fun walking up Rangitoto Island because I have never done anything like that in my whole entire life.
