Selwyn College Test Writing - Education

Education means learning and a lot of other things such as sport, music and even a tramp with some family members or your friends. Music means you learn how to play instruments for school bands/parades or a prize giving item. Most instruments go along with songs including the guitar, piano and even a flute.

Kapa haka is also education because you are learning the maori language. That goes along with a lot of cultures such as Niue, Tongan, Samoan and a lot of other ones too. In Kapa haka you learn lots of cultural dances and songs. I have been in Kapa haka and have performed and it was awesome.

A school tramp isn't much education but to keep yourself healthy. It keeps you fit and sometimes you can explore a lot of new things that you haven't seen before. Mountains and really steep hills are what most trampers tramp along. A lot of parents tramp to keep them self healthy just like I stated before.

Future Aspirations

Growing up i’ve always wondered what I wanted to be when I got older. It then hit my mind at the age of 10 that I wanted to be a lawyer. It takes a lot of determination and dedication because getting someone out of trouble is the main thing. Its not an easy job but I am willing to take the challenge. I still haven't decided on what type of lawyer I want to be. It is a very hard decision as there are a lot of different types of lawyers. Every one of them takes not only about 10 minutes but maybe 10 months to finish all the degrees and requirements.

If being a lawyer somehow gets out of the books then I would love to own my own restaurant named Marvin’s burger palace. It would be so cool to own my restaurant because it might inspire other people to run one too. It would sell lots of yummy food including burgers, fries, chicken nuggets and many many more things too. If you are wondering where the name came from it came from Mr Pinada at tech. It would be awesome to run my own business or even to save someone from getting in trouble.

My friend Melvin would like to be a surgical doctor so he could save a lot of lives including himself at certain times. Another choice would be to be an ambulance worker which would also help a lot of people when in need. Architecturing is also another thing Melvin would love to do because he could design and even plan to build some awesome buildings for himself and most importantly for others.

Literacy writing about Aqw

Adventure Quest is a online multiplayer game that is recommended for a lot of teens. At Point England School, it is the game that everyone is into. It includes heaps of classes like mage, warrior, healer, rouge and many more.It involves a lot of weapons and items which will make your character look better. If you donate for membership you will have more benefits than normal players. People can slay monsters and level up their characters to become stronger which will have a good advantage in the Pvm/Pvp Categories. A lot of people at our school have Nz_ before their name which shows that they are in the clan. In my opinion this is a good game and it is recommended by me.

Jungle Narrative Literacy Writing

My group and I were travelling through the jungle to find something in the Temple of Zong, when blocking our path was a huge wall covered in vines. We couldn’t go through it, we couldn’t go under it, we couldn’t go around it. So we had to go over it. We all looked up and saw how tall it was. Everyone quietly said to themselves “How are we going to do this?”

Ascending the long twisty vines and eventually arriving at the top to find nothing but more jungle was very disappointing but we weren’t going to give up. We then rushed through the dense plants and jumped over the patches of quicksand. Even though we were all tired and wanted to sleep, we were determined to make it all the way. Stopping for a break and looking around we stumbled upon a waterfall which was very astonishing.

Then deciding to dive into the water we found a huge crate that felt like it was filled to the brim with random items. Cracking the crate open and finding gold items, we were super happy!!! I thought in my head “ why would we get these gold things instead of someone else”. I thought it was a little bit fishy when suddenly I dived back into the water and stumbled upon a wire that seemed to have broken when we pulled the crate out. Yelling at the group saying “Leave the crate and run,  it’s a trap!!!!!”

Zooming out of the dense jungle and looking behind to find nothing but plants and trees wasn’t a very good sight. I was all alone which meant  I must of taken the wrong turn. As I walked back I found out of nowhere, footsteps which looked like they led to something interesting.

Suddenly the footsteps vanished and my only choice was to look up. Out of nowhere a panther pounced onto me and as I panicked I pulled out my machete and barely sliced its leg. Running around finally thinking I had made it away when the panther popped out of the bushes and landed on me. Throwing it off then running for my life I thought it was going to be the end. Quickly descending the huge wall and finally escaping. I then Arrived at the car and right there the group was waiting for me. We then drove home and went to sleep.

Syria Vs Auckland Melvin and Marvin

Melvin: I woke up in the morning with the light of the sun on my face. I continued to lie down in my warm bed. As I was falling asleep again, all of a sudden my dad came in shouting “Get ready for school”. I moaned and kicked the blanket off me. As I got up I heard my dad eating like a pig by himself in the kitchen as usual.

Marvin: The sound of people screaming woke me up every morning. Hopping out of my cardboard box in the abandoned building, I walked along the hard stone floor to eventually arrive at my mother’s room three floors down. I had always wondered why people were screaming until I walked outside and saw people getting shot everywhere. “Why are these people doing this”.

Slowly I walked into the kitchen with my arms hanging down beside me. I stared at the eggs and bacon for a second. I asked my dad if I could have some, but he said no and told me to wait for my mum. So I moaned even louder making me a bowl of weet-bix instead. I poured the milk in the bowl making the weet-bix soggy.

I then arrived at my boss’s house to finally see what job I was going to have to do today. “Water collecting” he said to me. “Ugh” I said to myself. I was sprinting around town gathering all the buckets possible then filling them up. Delivering was the most hardest part but I wasn't going to give up. I had finished my job for today and finally I could go home.

As I left my school at 3:PM I was feeling hot as the sun shined on me. I felt my back lifting me down because I just finished Athletics training. When I got home I walked in seeing my mum having afternoon tea with my brother and sister. I wasn’t hungry I just wanted to go to sleep. But I had to do my chores which was mow the lawn, pull the weeds, water the garden, clean my room and mop the bathroom. But at the end I had play outside and had fish and chips for dinner.

I was making my way home and right behind me was a little boy that looked like he had no home. Almost arriving at my house when he told me a very very sad story. He said to me “My parents died from some bad people cause they had a bomb”. Arriving at home and saying to my mom “this boy has no parents can we live with us?”. “Yes” she replied. We then lived happily ever after.
