Dear Parents and Friends of the School


This is the time of year where everything should slow down. But in point-of-fact the opposite happens and we become very busy: * Exams to prepare senior students for; start on the 11th of November * Camps to prepare for and run; Deep Cove Yr 7/8, Camp Wellington Yr 9/10, OPC seniors (students vs wild) * Science Road Show, Junior Athletics, New Zealand Secondary Schools Athletics, Cricket, Quadrathon, Gutbuster and Prize Giving All combine to make for an interesting and busy term for students. Rochelle Gordon, Police Education Officer is working with students with regard Cyber Safety and Cyber Bullying. E dangers for our students are very real. Having strategies to avoid these dangers is very important. This is an issue that we would encourage parents to discuss with their children. Rochelle is to also run a parent information evening. We will advise parents of date and time.

Kind Regards John Auld

A story of horror, hope and life: Life was normal, amazing, before, they came anyway, crumbled our walls, Taken, moved out, beaten, controlled, Stolen from life, thrown into horror For what we dont know, cannot guess. From comfort, known, everyday, To squeezed in the stones, many of us, The walls, wires, cages and dust, All those enclosing, cold iron bars, And our souls slip out between them.

Paige Cotton The Year 10's have also sat a NCEA Netball & Squash Mathematics Standard and all passed with Excellence Grades. Autumn Forbes, JJ Houpapa-Barrett, Eden Wilson, Cheyanne Robertson, Taylor Whitehead, Eloise McLaughlin

Were worked too hard, and fed too little, And we are forgotten by the world, Crushed, abused, tortured in silence, Life in a jail, yet not for our crimes, They steal the meaning of the world.

The stone, gas, ash, cramped, living dead, But help arrived, an unlikely man, To rescue us from hell on earth, Hes a lying, cheating, scheming man, Yet the best to set us all free. And he saved us from our captors, He means more to anyone of us, Than we do to ourselves, He risked it all for us, remember, All that we shall never forget

Oskar Schindler; he who saved a single soul and saved the world entire. Holly Shaw

A ball point pen is an everyday necessity. It is such an uncomplicated yet brilliant tool. It allows you to write by imprinting marks on the paper, so it is visible to the human eye for later use.

The ball point pen is made up of small parts that make it functional. The main parts are; the ball which is a very tiny sphere rolls around in the nib, slowly releasing the ink. The nib is the section of the pen that connects the ball to the ink tube. The ink tube is what holds the precious ink. The clicker presses the ink tube down using a spring to make it possible to write. All of this is wrapped safely in plastic with a rubber grip. To operate this tool you must begin by pushing down the clicker, which will expose the nib so you can scrawl down your works. Secondly grasp the pen on the grip at the lower end of the pen, to give optimum control and accuracy. To avoid hand cramp, do not hold the pen too tightly. Move your hand in the form of the desired shapes, well pressing down on the paper to leave the ink trail. Pens are the superior tool compared to pencils which need sharpened and often break. The pen is the kin of writing utensils; everybody looks forward to getting the privilege of using the pen. It is used worldwide to leave notes, write stories, practise sums, writing in the office, learning and just writing in general.

In conclusion the pen is the finest option to write with, because its simple, effective, long lasting and just brilliant. Where would the world be without the ball point pen? By Eden and Autumn

SHADOWS
A shadow is made by the sun. A shadow is stuck to you when your shadow is on the ground. Arnika

A shadow is our human body blocking the light. A shadow is completely black. Our shadow changes when the earth moves. Bryce

A shadow is something that blocks the sun. The sun stays in the same place, it is the earth that moves. Isla
