What I have learnt this week in maths.

This week I have learnt what equivalent fractions are.  Equivalent fractions is a fraction times two. For example : 1/2 = 2/4 = 4/8. Maths is fun is a helpful site that I use with my maths.

Lectio Divina

Today in prayer time I did the Lectio Divina. The scripture was Matthew: 14 23-33. I have chosen the word Faith. I have also written why I have chosen the word faith.

The Islander in me!

My hair is rough like the husk of a coconut. My voice is as loud as the choir singing in the church. My eyes reflect the light coming from the sunset. My skin is as brown like that palm tree trunk that reach over me when I walk outside.

My feet sinks down into the soft green grass every time I step out the door. The hot wind blows my hair back and forth. Trucks go past blasting music louder than a lion's roar. Village people carrying baskets made from long palm fronds across their shoulders.

The sounds of animals rings through my ears as I walked pass derelict houses abandoned by owners may be through tribal wars. The aroma of freshly cooked umu food causes my nose to twitch. Roasted pork, still on the burning fire, leaves my mouth watery as I would savour just even the slightest drop of water.

Tired from walking in the hot rays of the sun, I stop to catch my breath, faster than I could catch a ball.  For a moment it feels like the sun peeking through the clouds. Then I thought “What a magnificent and beautiful place Samoa is.”

A great start to Cook Island language week

Full of excitement and wonder my heart was pounding as I entered the TakiTumu Reo. As I walk inside of the kindergarten I see smiling little faces on each child's face. I see children running, dancing, singing and playing with toys. I see the beautiful Cook island dresses that they wear. I hear guitars, drums and little kids singing. I thought that today was a wonderful experience about the Cook Island culture. I experienced the language, the dancing,  the songs, the instruments and my favourite the food. I felt proud to hear the history of my culture. I loved the different kinds of Cook Island foods that was prepared. I also thought that I learned a good amount of knowledge about the Cook Islands.
