Paradise In Rotorua

Waking up to the smell of of freashness in Rotorua, Staying at Cosy Cottage with a walkway to the lake and a big swimming pool and 3 spa’s. It was really cool at th holiday. Me and my family go down to Roto-vegas (Rotorua) to watch rugby league at the park.

There are many attractions in Rotorua like the luge, Agrdome, meet the locals, parks and many others. Every year we go out to a place but this year we didn’t because we went to my aunty and uncles place. There house is really big and really cool. I played with my cousins.

We went to see my brother play rugby league for Tamaki Makarauand they played five games and won the the tournament and so did Counties Manukau for the Wahine Toa. My sisters, sister played for Counties and they took out there section.

After all the games we were all tired and i fell asleep. The next day we packed and left to go have breakfast and then we hit the road. When we go home i never fall asleep even on the way there. It was really fun and i was gutreted we never went any where this time.


Yay Tennis had arrived to Pt England school. Today tennis was enjoyable. It was intense, competitive and exhausting. We were practising how to use a tennis racket, We were on the senior courts with a man named Marcelle. He plays tennis for a club

It was hard and easy but the boys got it done easily.The girls just weren’t eager to face the boys in the mini comp. We moved on to doing drills but before we started playing a mini comp we had to know how to handle a ball and the tennis racket. So we spilt up into different groups and practised hitting and the whole class got to have a turn with playing on a mini court.

We played a game called King/Queen Of the Court. In groups we had to pass the ball over to the king (which was me) and then I had to hit it back to them without hitting the ball over to the line or hitting it out. It was fun and then...

I got moved to another group so I could get a challenge but I still smashed it at the other group but I was still the king. It was really funny because every time someone won they had to do a victory dance. I had to do it all the time.

Next week we have another session in the morning, Marcelle said to rm 21 we will practise using our back hand and and have a big tournament. He was saying we are really good and really sportie, It is really exciting.

Manly take it out 2011

Last week the Warriors and Manly played for the 2011 NRL grand final, fighting their way through a tough season. Who is going to win ? Well considering the way Manly played this year it was really good and that they read the game well. It was a pleasure that the warriors stood out this year also. It was Nerve racking and also fun.

It was the warriors second time that they have made a grand final. I was watching with family and my aunties and baby cousin. We were all yelling supporting both teams and it was very loud. It was really emotional too.
They all played good games and played hard in the final, but the one that stood out the whole year was Dally Cherry Evans ( Manly Half back). He played exceptionally well and is an awesome kid.

I thought that it was really cool that the Warriors made it but the Manly side took it out. Maybe next year the Warriors might take it out
