Sweet Tooth

Mid afternoon sugar craving? Really need a pick me up? I know the feeling, that only chocolate could ease! Hey in case you didn't now I am a chocoholic!

My mum always says I've got her genes. We never miss a day without having our sweet food. We also love to bake desserts. It's amazing how we satisfy ourselves with all our sugar cravings!

One great athlete!

Have you ever heard about a great olympic athlete called Mariana Avitia? Her full name is Mariana Avitia Martínez. She was born in September 18, 1993 in Monterrey, Mexico. She is in the Archery Women's Mexican team.

The sport that Mariana competes in is Archery. As you may have heard she is really good at it. She won bronze for the individual women's Archery in the london 2012 summer olympics. At the 2008 Beijing summer olympics she finished her ranking round with a total of 641 points. The women's Mexican team (Mariana Avitia’s team) finished with a gold in the 2011 Guadalajara Pan American Games!!!

The reason I picked Mariana Avitia as my favorite athlete is because when I saw her play Archery in the olympics on television... I was amazed of what she can do. I was very inspired by her determination. Just by watching on television she taught me to never give up whatever happens!!!

I hope you have learnt something from this story. And also enjoyed it. Whatever your goal is don’t stop untill you reach it. Even if it takes a while, keep going!!!

Our Great Valerie Adams

Did you hear about our awesome Valerie Adams? She just won GOLD!!! This is because her rival Nadzeya Ostapchuk was taking steroids and when the judges heard about it she got disqualified. Adams went from silver to gold!

At first Valerie was very disappointed with her silver and also because she lost her record for the three times she won gold in a row. Now we all know that Valerie is truly the best shot put player ever!

I just found out this morning that Nadzeya Ostapchuk accused Valerie Adams for using steroids in 2005! But we all know Valerie would never cheat and would never disappoint her country. Valerie Adams is a true champion!!!

We look forward to the Rio De Janeiro 2016 olympics. I can’t wait to see Valerie in action once again!!!

The Awesome Life Education Caravan!!!

Last week on Thursday and Friday Room 16 went to the life education caravan or life ed for short. The life education caravan is a fun place to learn about all sorts of topics! This year we learnt about our tenana (our body.)

Lynn is the one who introduces us to Harold the giraffe. She is also the one who teaches us everything we need to keep our tenana healthy. I learnt some facts about what our tenana needs every 24 hours. Did you know that energy drinks have caffeine in them?

I learnt that I have to feed my tenana every day to keep it in tip top shape. We learnt heaps from harold and Lynn. And we got some new friends out of the experience too.

My favorite part in the experience was when the whole class sang karaoke! The song we sang was “Supercomputer”, it is a really catchy song. It was a funnny song but even the boys sang along. In fact the boys in my class sang louder than our teacher and all the girls combined!!!

We all love going to the life ed caravan. I hope you will get the opportunity to meet harold as well. I think you’ll like him.

Getting ready for an awesome camp!!!

All my bags are packed for a great weekend getaway! Not even the rainy weather could stop it. It will be an exciting, fun learning about God with my friends at KFC (Kids For Christ.)

Our theme for this event is MOVE... by God, for God, with God.I will be performing in the “World Changers” song. There are also interesting line ups of cool workshops. Three of these workshops got my attention. I signed up for journalism, photography, singing and recycle runway fashion.

We are so blessed to be part of this community because not only we get to do cool stuff but also we get to know more about our coolest friend, Jesus!!!
