Christchurch Earthquake

On the 22nd of February at 12:51 a second major earthquake happened in Christchurch. It was a 6.3 magnitude quake. It has been a devastating time for the people of Christchurch. Many have no homes to sleep in so they have to sleep in their cars or on the ground in sleeping bags. Some of the people's loved ones are still trapped under piles of rubbles. Rescuers are trying their best to try and get the people those people that are trapped out.

I feel so sorry for the people of Christchurch we are all trying our best to help them, by fundraising for Christchurch. We are all thinking of Christchurch because some of our families are there as well and we also feel so sorry for them.

Tamaki Technology

On Monday the 14 of February at 8:30 am the year 7’s and year 8’s went to Tamaki college for technology. There were Wood work, Food tech, Electronics,Science and Graphics. Wood work - Wood Work is when you make something out of wood like a truck or a car. Food Tech -Food Tech is when you make different kinds of dishes like chocolate brownies, at the end when you’ve finished making the dish you have to start cleaning your area that you worked in and then you have to write the recipe such as what ingredients and equipment you need to make the dish. Graphics - Graphics is when you create different kinds of objects like a spinning wheel, it is when you turn the wheel and then you will see some interesting facts.

The group that i was in was electronics. we didn’t actually do anything we just talked about safety rules and solved problems just so we know what electronics was all about. Our teacher’s name was Mr Malhortra he was a funny teacher he always made us laugh. After a while we got into groups and sat at our tables and then we discussed about what we want to make next week.

What I was thinking of making was a hat with a fan on top of it or a light on top of a hat so when it’s dark and I can’t see i can use the light from my hat to show where I am going. The fan on the hat was so when I am playing and I am to hot and I still want to keep playing and I don’t want to sit in the shade I can just turn the little switch on and then the motor will make the fan turn on.
