Alcohol Satire


Walt: Use Satire to express meaning.
Image result for alcohol

WARNING: I'm sorry if you're offended by this piece of writing I have written and please don't believe any of this because half of it is not even true. 

Don’t adults just love drinking these days! I mean it’s like a nectar from of the gods. Isn’t it mouth drooling just looking at alcohol? Did you know that alcohol is the world’s best solution to all of your problems? Remember just sitting there consuming a whole bottle of alcohol straight after you’ve just lost your job. Ahhhh great memories!

Tons of people around the world are doing this thing where you drink and get drunk then go for a drive. I know right that’s so cool! *cough cough*. But wait there’s more as you drive you can’t see anything it completely blurry. It’s so fascinating! If you keep doing that the cops will drag you to the best place in the world….jail. I mean it’s like staying in a hotel for the rest of the night. Anyways as I said before alcohol is the world’s best solution to all of your problems. It actually works (no it doesn’t. Like if you lost your job? Alcohol, Got in a fight? Alcohol, Had to find another place to stay because you didn’t pay your rent? Alcohol! I heard that it’s getting more cheaper. Spending more than $30 on a beer is so affordable. I mean who would rather go buy milk and bread for like $5 when you can buy alcohol for $35.

I think that reading this piece makes us all realize that alcohol plays a good part in our lives. Alcohol is basically a best-friend! It’s so cheap, very helpful and delicious. Now we know not to worry about anything because we are in alcohol’s good hands!

Task Description: Last week Room 1 literacy wrote a Satire piece of writing. Satire is kind of like sarcasm but in a nice way. We looked up examples of Satire so we can get an idea of what we were going to be talking about. Some people decided to write about School and even the old man himself Donald Trump! I decided to write a satire about Alcohol so I gathered lots of information about alcohol and began writing. This is my finish piece enjoy!

Term 3 Paideia Seminar - EXTC

Today the Y7&8 EXT participated in a Paidea Seminar. A Paidea Seminar is when we come together in our own groups and argue about different statements its like a class discussion but better. There were different groups the Nutritionists, Athletes, Teachers, Doctors, Parents and my group the Shop Owners. In my group was Paikea, Sheena and Naomi. We argued from a Shop Owner's perspective about healthy food. I thought that my group did well in presenting our research and we contributed a lot about Shop Owners. Other groups had very interesting statements to make about healthy food especially the doctors. They said that 50% of Maori's had obesity but pacific islanders had 69% of obesity which was very scary to hear.

 I think that I did well during our discussion better than last term but I think that I should've included more people into our discussion because most people weren't discussing with the whole group. Overall I enjoyed the Paidea Seminar and I learn't lot's of interesting facts and information.

Te Wa Toi Research


Task Description: Last week Team five did some research on five different types of artists. This rotation went from Monday to Friday switching to a different class each day. I learn't about artists that I never knew before and some that I thought I knew well but I turned out to be wrong! I found out lot's of interesting facts and discussed about it with my friends. Our task was to fill in the boxes with different facts and images about the artist we learn't about. I enjoyed learning about Lady Pink because she was interesting and had amazing artwork. Enjoy!

MTV KRIBS // EXT MOVIE KPMG



A few weeks ago the Year 7&8 Extension and a few selected students got the opportunity to go to KPMG. KMPG is a professional service company and is on of our school's biggest sponsors that helps us pay for stuff like chrome books, iPads and more. We visited the place and got to do a ton of cool things. We were divided into groups and we were each given a category to film about. My group was lucky because we got to do an MTV. We gathered the group together and we decided to do an MTV KRIBS. This MTV was just the tour of the incredible building but not the whole building. This is the finishing results of our movie.

"Being famous and/or rich would make me happy"

Walt: Consider both sides of an argument.
"Being famous and/or rich would make me happy"
Image result for Debating

I partly agree with this statement because if I was famous/rich it could help me travel the world to help others who don’t live in safe places, give to the people who need clean and fresh water or just lend a helping to those who need good shelter and homes. Being famous/rich could also help me to inspire others to work hard and reach for their dreams especially those who suffer from severe conditions and can’t do what most people can. I could also live an easier life because if I was famous and/or rich I could  earn heaps of money. I would be living in a pleasing house that is maintained by housekeepers, gardeners, cooks and other servants to help me. This goes to show that being famous and/or rich can make me feel happy because I’m basically rich, I can give to the homeless and have a happy life!

Yet there are still a few things that would make me feel miserable about being famous and or rich. I have to worry about my safety because I have to go through threatening messages saying that someone wants to kill me. But it’s not only my safety that I have to worry about it’s also my family’s safety. Speaking of family I can have a hard time because I would have to be away from them so much because of things like meetings and tv interviews. Online gossip is also one thing that would bother me while being famous/rich. There are alot of untruthful things that go around on the internet which could also ruin my career just because of haters.

Overall I think that I would be famous and/or rich because of the benefit of helping others in need and also to support my family with what they need help with but only for a period of time.


Task Description: For this task Room 1 Literacy talked about a statement and we debated about the statement. The statement was "Being famous and/or rich would make me happy". We looked at both sides of the argument and then looked at it from our own perspective. We all discussed our opinions whether we agree or disagree in little groups then formed our own statement. This is my final opinion.
