The Longest Walk - By Giselle

 Chris,Jodine,johnny and Elizabeth, The Rapsey family are going on a long walk. They are following a route called Te Araroa, Which means the long pathway, longest track in the country. This family is not like other family walkers, some people walk maybe a mile or more but this family walked three thousand kilometres. The family started at the top of Poukirikiri.  Most nights they camp in there tents sometimes they stay in tramping huts or houses. They went from Cape Reinga to Bluff. This Trip took them 3 months and don't forget they walk Three Thousand Kilometres.

Personally I would love to do this, I love how this family has so much energy and I honestly believe they love to follow and complete their Goals, Which Is really Amazing.

Aroha's Unique Way


In a world where I live, perfection is all it is

Beautiful white smiles, no hair looking wild

All boys slick hair and games

All girls dressing the same

Everyone being perfect and pleasant  

but no one is

being who they are and different


I stand up and try to be different 

put uniqueness in peoples


but just one look 

the protest starts

A world against one

 I close my eyes and give up

that one heart is now done

she becomes the same just like all

a perfect world with no one appalled

walking home her smile dropped, her heart broken down and popped

she rips the bows off her hair, wipes off the make up with her tears

looking at the mirror she sees the girl she once was

her heart had that little warm fuzz

the next morning

she wore what she wants she didn't dress the same 

  like a type of font

Once again its a world against one

she looks at all and says

you don't have to be perfect and the same

the world looks at me with so much shame

but Aroha knows

she doesn't need a tweak she's perfect the way she is and 

she is

Red Zone Christchurch-By Giselle.

In the 2010 to 2011, many areas in Christchurch were harmfully affected by, soil liquefaction caused by an earthquake. Once the earthquake ended, that area became a red zone meaning it was land that cant be built on. People only got a couple minutes to grab their belongings, obviously they did not get much. People must have lost family pictures, clothes, cars and their homes. If I would have lived in that area I would have been terrified.

Mophead - By Giselle


Today my class and I did a creative diary entry piece for Selina Tusitala.

Diary Entry:

I n
ever told them I was getting bullied, I didn't want them to be in my college drama. I saw the look in my parents eyes, It looked like they were thinking I was getting an award. The principal came in looking at Giselle with anger, he sits down , explains what Giselle has been doing to me. My parents look at me with a face I didn't know explain but all I know they were sad.

I was in a Restorative justice meeting with the bully Giselle and her parents, and mine. I felt like throwing up not just because i'm in the same room as the bully, because my parents are here!!.

Coming home they talked to me " why didn't you tell us", My mum said. With no reply I walked up the stairs to go to my room my parents said " we love you for who you are and who you want to be. Slowly I came down the stairs and I ran to them and gave them a giant hug.

The Child Hero - By Giselle

Arriving at the hospital, a child on a gurney seeing lights flicker, gurney wheels squeaking, hearing his family crying heavily then suddenly, very slowly everything goes dark.

The child's eyes open to see he's in a room with nobody to be seen, Everything was so quiet all he could hear was beeps from a heart monitor. A person walks in the room, thinking it was the child's mother he has a smile on his face but his smile drops as soon as he realizes it is the doctor ready to stitch him up. 

The doctor injects an anesthetic in the boys intravenous, The child's eyes shut and he goes back to that dark universe he once was in.

The boys eyes open to see his mother and sister beside him. The child's sister hugs him and his mother hugs him too. The boys sister taps his arm and says "I love you, you are my hero."
