Thank You Letter HBHS

Thank You,

We really appreciate you for coming to our school (Parkvale Primary) and performing the Pasifika and Kapa Haka. I really enjoyed the Kapa Haka because I liked the Haka and I really enjoyed the Pasifika because of all the dances and the chants.It was so cool because you showed passion for what you were doing. It taught me a bit about what you do at your school. Also a bit about the Maori culture. It was really really fun to watch,I was like WOW when you came in and the really loud music started to play. Once again we really appreciate your time here.

 Thank you Hastings Boys High School.

Lost in the bush

Lost in the bush


One day there was a camp going on. My name is Jake and my friends are Jack and Jessy i’ve got way more friends. They are just my best friends. We were all so excited about camp that I was getting nervous that our camp group might be silly on camp and might get lost. Anyway the camp was in 6 weeks so I should probably save my nerves until the big day.


6 weeks later…


The big day arrived we had to be there really early and then waited an hour until we were on the van ready to go. Maybe I was excited in the inside but on the outside I was totally terrified. Anyway on the van we went and I said to myself “no turning back now maybe I should’ve stayed at home”. But my friends Jessy and Jack were so excited.


At the camp we were, I had to go to the toilet and the camp group nearly went off without me until I caught up with them. The next day we went on a track and my friends and I nearly slipped off the track and held onto a branch and then the branch broke and we all screamed “AAAAAAAA RRRRRRRR” and we fell onto a piece of rocky dirt, I nearly broke my spine and so did my friends. We just lay there until finally we were fine. So we tried to follow from where we fell and we ended up running into a restricted area where bombs were tested and we were like uh oh worried and then boosh went a bomb. Luckily the bomb missed us but as more went off it seemed like that the bombs where they are tested were following us boosh…


“Jack!!!!!!” Screamed me and Jessy running as fast we could go. All of a sudden a silent bomb went off and blew up Jessy’s foot. Now Jessy had to hop AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR  JESSY!!!!! Jessy just got blown up because a bomb hit his heart and blew up R.I.P Jessy and Jack.
Although I was the only one who didn’t die. I still made it,  really do not know how I survived but I couldn’t find my camp,but I did see a van and I thought it must be the van. But I got it all wrong there was only one man in the car and he had a pistol in his hand. UH OH I thought to myself i'm going to die.


I had a plan to jump out of the van and try to find our camp van instead of this. So I did just that and guess what it worked!! I found our camp van and all went back home and now i’m never going on camp ever again.

Interdependence Post

On Monday the class did an interdependence activity. The activity was creating an art piece and writing our own rap or song about the school holidays.We made a whole list of what are group did in the school holidays and we put our favourite thing that we did. We then showed to the class what we had done. I didn't really like the song because the people who sang it had no tune to the song and they could've made it better if they were more enthusiastic.
