Cross Country Excellence #9

On Friday I went to the south west zones cross county with the other people that came 1st 2nd or 3rd in the cross country for school in their event.
In the school cross country I came 1st and that means I go to zones. We had to be at school before 8:30 on Friday so we could get to the event on time and sort out where we are sitting and things like that. I kept getting more nervous as the races went on and throughout all the year groups. Finally our race came and we had to take off all our jackets, it was freezing.
We then lined up on the starting line and the horn went off. We were racing. I got puffed straight away so I was wondering if I could finish the whole race in a running pace. The race was 3km. I was so relieved went I crossed the finish line. Overall I came 7th as I found out on the sheet. Which means I get to go to Canturburys and represent Oaklands school for it!

I showed excellence by participating in the zones

I showed leadership by representing my school positively.

Student council Excellence #8

On Wednesday the heads and deputys went to student council and everyone else who got voted to be there classes representives. The meeting took place at 12:35 in the hall foyer set up in a circle.
This was about our 5th meeting for this year and we started off by writing down our name on a piece of paper to say we were in the student council and it was kind of the roll.
Next we talked about pink shirt day beacause it was happening this Friday.
Then Mrs Trotter asked if our classes had made posters to say that it was pink shirt day for anti bullying.
That was basically all we talked about until it was 12:50 which is when student council finishes

I showed respect by contributing to the group discussion positively.

I was also being trustworthy by showing up on time and not being late.

When we got there we walked to our classes and in my case it was to design and textiles.

Once they had set up Maya and Cat went for a wonder and they run into a boy called Carlos who shows them to ghosts and cat is afraid of them and Maya runs to them  is the ghost tour guide and the find ghosts and it is halloween and Cat goes with her friends then there is a twist at this point and and they dress up. This is a great book for people who like graphic novel.
