Student Council (Distinction badge)

Distinction badge Can-do

Student Council

Today I didn't have Student Council, because of Literacy week and the Leaders had to go around each class to get some photos of three or four students reading there book, which is why I couldn't do it and I am really annoyed, but next week the year 8's aren't going to be a school, because of Wellington which is bad too.

The things that I found on the Minutes was that we had to go back to the classrooms and talk to them about what we talked about in Student Council. 

This is a review of what Kyla has put down so far 
Student Council Minutes  
When it comes to the next Student council meeting I am going to be there,  because I need to and, because it is one of my leadership roles and it is why I got chosen by the class and I really need to go or it will be really bad for me when I have now idea what is going on and it is near the end of the year and I need just to go.

The learner quality that I showed was turning up on time.

The leadership that I showed was doing the right thing in Student Council.  

Parliament (NZ Identity)


This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that WE learned are NZ parliament are:

  • Where all the people sit in parliament e.g Our prime minister sits in the 4th seat
  • What all the people do in Parliament e.g Sargent at arms removes any members that are being overly rowdy
  • Before a law it becomes a law it was called a bill.

Explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.

Being a good house leader (Distinction badge)

Distinction badge Can-do

Being a good house leader

Today we had another assembly. This one was a very a good one for me. The class that was hosting this assembly was by Room/s 15,16 and 17 (The Juniors classes). We started off by singing our school Waiata with everyone doing the action excepted the leaders. After singing, we went onto doing the certificates. It started with doing the Leadership badges, but there were none, but I did get to up and get my Science which took me a long time to get and I finally got it. After doing the certificates we went onto looking at what Room/s 15,16 and 17 have been up to. 

After watching the small sideshow of what they did we didn't have enough time, so we didn't get to do them,  so we ended up singing the National Anthem in the end. Sam W, Monique and I had to leave early, because we hadn't done the devices.

The learner quality that I showed was not talking through the whole assembly.

The leadership that I showed was being a good role model in assembly.
