Did you know?....... Ki o rahi

Did you know that ki o rahi was created as a peaceful way of
resolving disputes between
, hapu and iwi.

During the 1st world war,
princess Te Puea encouraged
Iwi not to enlist but to instead
revive Maori past times as a
result a number of Waikato
people began playing ki o Rahi
and other games.

I really want the snow to come back to Tawa. Maybe if I put a snow machine in the sky or make a freezer for the rain. I will do anything to make it snow again.

I remember last time it snowed I made snowmen and snowballs and threw them at my Friend's. I threw the snowballs too.

It was so fun amazing when it snowed. I want a proper turn in the snow so please lord let it rain again.

Silver medal

I was so tired. On the big microphone the man said It was a close game and I came #2. I did not win but I got silver. Not everything is about winning. Sometimes it's just about having fun. I stood on the stage with the people that came 1st and 3rd. They gave out the bronze and shook his hand. Then he walked to me and gave me the silver and shook my hand. I felt so good inside then I yelled "let's get this party on"
