When I arrived at school I was so proud to perform in front of everybody .While we were getting ready for the fiafia I felt so scared to perform at the same time. Our group did very awesome. I was in the Cook Island group. When I was dancing I think I did right at performing in front of my family and the whole school.
My favourite performance was Precisely That. This is Mr Barks and Mr Somerville's group. I loved the precisely that because I loved the way they moved after each others and I just liked it. They hooked me into their smile and the way they did it so beautifully.They are just one hundred percent awesome.
Right now I am feeling so excited.Next time when we have fiafia I am hoping that the cook island group to do their bestest and to give one hundred percent.Next time I am going to be in the hiphop group.

Do you know how to swim?Learning to swim is important.
There are lots of reasons why swimming is important I‘m going to explain three of them to you.
One of the reasons why swimming is important it’s because New Zealand has one of the highest drowning rates in the world.We have swimming lessons so we can get better at swimming and getting better at surviving in the water.
If you don’t know how to swim you can go to the pools with someone that knows how to swim so they can teach you how to swim.
New Zealand is a small country that we are surrounded by oceans and Beaches, Lakes,and Local pools.In summer when it is hot most familis loved to go to the pools to swim,but some of them dosent know how to swim.
