Cross Country 2k15

“Get ready, Get Set and Go,” says Manu.
Year 0, 1 and room 4 ran as fast as they could. Geckos coming first, Tui’s coming second, Kiwi coming third and Keas coming last. That’s what the others thought but actually it kinda turned out the other way around.

Year 8 and 7 up, it was my turn to run. It was tiring, we were running like their were no more tomorrow. Everyone was huffing and puffing. 2 rounds and a half was exhausted, I couldn't take it anymore. Stitches on my stomach, legs dying, mouth dried, everything looks like their is no more tomorrow.

Tei coming first for the year 8 boys, Justin coming second for the year 8 boys, Frank coming third. Hola coming first for the year 8 girls, Lupe coming second, myself coming third, Catherine coming fourth.

Now it was time to do the chants, Kiwi went up first, Tui’s were second, Geckos were third and Keas were last. Tui’s won the chant competitions. Kiwi won the cross country 2k15, it was a good experiment for the Kiwi’s because it was their first time winning an school sport activity.

Underwater Sea Visit


Down the stairs all the way to Scott’s Huts copy room. Scott’s Hut’s copy room looks exactly like his house at Antarctica. His house looks amazing, imagine if we lived there in the freezing cold weather.  

Kelly Tarltons got it’s name from a man called Kelly Tarlton. He died in 1985, he died in his sleep. The reason why they named it after him was because he was known for diving and archaeology.

Kelly Tarltons is an amazing place, it looks big when you're inside and it looks small when you’re standing outside. We visited the Penguins first, then the Sting Ray. There were 3 short tail Sting Ray and they were called Phoebe.

The Stingrays were massive and Intelligent. The Stingrays weighed around 200lbs. Cathy was the person who feed the Stingrays, she feed them with little squids. After that we headed off to the Shark tunnel.

In the Shark tunnel there were School Sharks, Broadnose Shark, Sand Tiger, Wobbegong Shark, Sea Turtle and many more. Shark time was over and it was time to go and see the Seahorse and the Sea Dragon.

Seahorses and the Sea Dragons were pretty amazing, it takes a millisecond for a Seahorse to eat one shrimp. Sea Dragons were long and thick, they were beautiful creatures. A minute after watching the Seahorses and the Sea Dragon it was time to head to the classroom and do some activities.

From time to time we all had fun and enjoyed every minute we spent at Kelly Tarltons. It was time to head back to school, I loved every creature they were beautiful and amazing.
