Talent quest

Last Friday we celebrated the feast day of St Pius X.  Our school celebration began with a whole school mass also a talent quest show.

Everyone rush into the hall after mass and tried to find a seat.  Parents,cousins,and preschoolers were asked to be seated. It was dead silent.  Everyone was waiting for the two host to appear,“what up Saint Pius!!” the hosts started.  First up will be Room 4, and so on. My cousin Salamona was in it, he did his Kempo (Material art).

Soon they announced that Room 7 will be performing.  I froze.  Everyone stood up,and walked. I looked around,what’s going on?.  I stood at the back hiding my face. Then the voices lifted “as we gather may”............
As we finish we all seated.The talent quest was over.

Subtracting with tidy numbers

This week in math I have been learning to solve problems by equal additions that turn one of the numbers into a tidy number.
e.g-183-68=add 2 to 183 and 68 so

I am learning to figure out strategies using Tidy Numbers.
I know it very well and I’m good at it.This strategy is simple.


189(4)+6=1900 1900+100=2000

Ash Wednesday

It was Ash Wednesday, the St Pius X students had a mass in the late morning.
We were receiving our brand new net books.

While Father was talking to us about the net book, I was just
thinking how exciting it will be when we get it. I felt like I
had ants in my pants. Then we stood up, got our net books and stood
up in front of everyone. Wow, how embarrassing to see my family take a photo.

"Now open your net books and type your user name, now type your password"
come on! hurry up! it rushed through my mind quickly

Net Book or No Net Book

Net books are not a great tool
These net books are a great tool but it could make us lose our handwriting skills.We can use these equipment but not all the time we have to get ready for college because some people can get really lazy and tired of writing,and then comes confidence's they can just chat online line with each other but when they go college will they have the confidence's to talk up?
Cuber Bully its very dangerous, is it really worth it?

Students look like they on tasks,but are they? there are a lot of inappropriate website like,Face Book and YouTube, and Games.
One click of a button and your there.
What happens if someone or your child drops or brakes your net books will you get a refund or do you have to keep on paying?

Also in our math there a calculators installed in our net books so people who find math exhausting they cheat and then they get put in the wrong group, and just think of there life they just might just take the easy path and then struggle in tests.
Net books are very addicted in room 7 I could see studied of St Pius X ,they just can’t keep they hand off the net books our teacher Mrs Tui gets very frustrated.
