A Fun Mission Day

On Friday we and our whanau celebrated Mission Day.  On Mission Day we raised lots of money for the orphans in India.  Orphans are children who do not have parents.  

First we went to Mass at church and then we came back to school and sat quietly while Father Matthew blessed our new playing area.  

Then we had playtime while the teachers put all the activities out.  Some activities were outside and some were in the classrooms.  After playtime I bought a traffic light flavoured ice block, an orange drink and some yummy lollies.  Then I went To Room 8 and had my face painted.  I was Penny Wise from the movie called 'IT'.  I looked really cool.  

Next my brother Xavier, my cousin Cameron I went to the library and sang Karaoke.  My friend Sione we won a prize.  It was a jar of lollies.  Then we went on the library computers and played some games.  They were reading games.  

After that we went to Room 2 with Miss Craig to watch a movie.  It was called Cat in the Hat, and we ate salty popcorn.  Later, before home time, we went to the new play area for the raffles to be drawn.  Then we went home by walking in the school walking line.  I had a fun Mission Day.

Our Family Gathering

On the weekend I went to my cousin's mum's house because my cousin's dad's mum was going to Samoa.  My cousin's name is Cameron and we go to the same school, but Cameron is older than me.  He is in Room 8.  We went to spend time with my cousin's family and farewell his Grandmother before she went to Samoa.  

My family and I drove to Cameron's mum's house in Williams Cresent. When we got there we all went inside and sat in the sitting room, and talked to each other.  There were a few people there already and then more people arrived.  I talked to my brother Xavier and my cousin Cameron.  We talked about the trampoline outside.  We wanted to go outside and play on it.  We said that maybe we will be able to play on the trampoline another weekend.  That would be great!

After talking for awhile we ate KFC and potato with gravy and chips, and cold slaw chicken (ck).  We also had a drink to go with our food.  Before we ate we said a prayer to thank God for the food that we had to eat.  We talked as we ate our food.  I liked eating the potato topped with gravy the best.  It tasted good.  

Later we left to go home.  Then I did my homework and went to sleep.  I like getting together with my family.
