My Uru Mānuka Logo

This is my Logo of Uru Mānuka, which represents Uru Mānuka.
The trees represent Uru Mānuka, the flowers represent the 8 schools in Uru Mānuka, the colour Green represents harmony, the colour Brown represents how solid Uru Mānuka is and that it can’t be broken, the colour Blue represents how professional Uru Mānuka is.
I used Google Drawings to make this Logo.

This is my logo design process: I had to make a logo of Uru Mānuka, so I got an idea of a swamp/marshy region, because Uru Mānuka is based in the former swamplands in hornby.

So I started with a circular base for where the water will be, then I started to add trees (preferably Rimu trees) and a small patch of land for where I will put 8 flowers (that represent the 8 schools in Uru Mānuka) and then I coloured in the water, the trees and the flowers.
For more of a swamp effect, I added more trees and white lines for a reflection effect.

 It would be really great if you could give me your feedback about my Logo to me, thank you.

I came 1st in a category at Digi-Awards!

On tuesday, 5 / 9 / 2017, I had to go to the digi-awards ceremony with my family & Ian, my friend & work partner, came along too.
when we arrived, we found a place to sit down, then more of Ian's family members came as well, then the awards for each age group and category, when it finally came to the Movie Making - Music category for yr7-8 and then, we couldn't believe it, but we had came 1st! Excited, we immediately came to the stage and got our certificates plus 2 boomboxes each for our prize for coming 1st and saw our music video (Hospitality Town) playing behind us. Later, we decided to go to back to our homes.

The next day, I opened up my new boombox, it was amazing, I quickly knew how to use it and get it all set up. I am proud that I won a category in digi-awards, especially with a friend. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and please comment down below.

On Monday, 14-8-2017, we had a visit from the author, Bill Nagelkerke, who told us about what to do write good stories, how hard it is to write one, and what he did with writing in his childhood.

I learned a lot from him at this visit and I really enjoyed it, especially when he did a magic trick.

William Pike visits Rimu!

On the 9th of august, 2017, William Pike was coming over to our school at 2:00pm and we were getting ready for his arrival. Well... Base and I were getting ready for William's arrival, we made slide-show of what we have done so far at WPCA this year (we did rope climbing and sailing so far) & we also mentioned last year some people did it too, as well as that Base & I are the william pike leaders in our school.

When he arrived, we were told to greet him and to lead him into our classroom, then he talked to our classroom & I ChromeCasted my slideshow onto the television screen & showed the photo reel of our activities that we have done so far.  Then it was time for Base and I to lead William outside so he leave.

I had lots of fun and thank you for having a look at this blog post, if you want to comment, pls comment down below.

Wednesday Rugby & Netball zones

On Wednesday, most of my class (including me) were going to zones & we had to climb into a bus.
We stopped at our first stop & our Rugby team walked out of the bus, we later dropped of our yr5-6 Netball team, then finally my yr7-8 Netball team were dropped at Rolleston College.

My team's matches were just fine until it started raining at the start of the 3rd match and my right hand went numb. After the match we had to place our bags inside the school building, lator we got out in the rain again for the final game. 

I had to find a way to keep my bag dry outside in the rain, so I zipped it up on a fence.
After the last game, my hair was drenched! We went to the bus, went to pick up our other Netball team and our Rugby team, then went back to school.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. If you have a comment to say, go down to the comment section below.
