Week 6: Orienteering

Talofa lava bloggers

Every Thursday we do orienteering with Leon. At first, we thought it was a bit boring because we had to listen to so much new information. Miss Fortes said that even though it was part of our sports programme, there is always a time to sit back, listen and learn.

Now we think that orienteering is the best sport in the world. Here are a few photos of us completing a Motala. This means many courses or relays.

Week 5: Thank you letter

Dear Dosirak.

Thank you for the food we had yesterday for our lunch. It was lovely and I liked it. I loved the soy milk because it tasted like banana and strawberry milk. I loved all the food.

Thank you Jemma.

Week 4: Dosirak, made with love for NZ kids

Annyeonghaseyo. Pohatu Class-eyo. Bangawoyo.

As part of the 2017 Korea Festival School Programme, we had 100 Dosirak lunches provided for us. These free lunches were generously provided as part of the “Dosirak, made with love for NZ Kids” programme run by The Consulate of the Republic of Korea in Auckland in conjunction with the Korean Education Centre.

Arum was the amazing woman who gave us the opportunity to participate in the programme. We were so excited when we saw Arum pull up with her father. Some of us quickly ran up to greet her in Korean and help her unload the delicious lunches.

We would like to say a massive 'Gamsa-hamnida' (thank you) to the following people
  • Arum and her father
  • Korean Consulate in Auckland
  • Korean Education Center in New Zealand
  • Michael Choi and the other fabulous chefs
  • AUT
  • JR Wholesale Meats
  • BidFood

We learned to say 'kimchi' when we pose for a photo instead of saying 'cheese'. Here is a picture of us with Arum

Week 2: Swimming

This week we started our swimming sessions down at Cameron Pools. We all met our coaches and learnt about water safety. Here is some of our learning...

"It's important to swim between the flags because if you don't you can get into trouble." - Jemma

"If the water on the ocean is rough and there is a smooth part that is a rip and you need to stay away from it." - Nathaniel

"Hypothermia is when your body temperature drops too low and you actually can die from it. So you need to wear something warm in the water like a wetsuit." - Vitaraag

"You always need an adult when you are around the water and they need to supervise you. This means that they need to have their eyes on you in case you get hurt."

Do you have any other water safety tips you would like to share with us?
