Reflect on 2016

2016 whatta crazy year, let’s go back when I first started school in year 7. I was in room 3 for my home class and all other learning classes.   I was lucky enough that I knew one person from Pt England and his name was Alfa Kepu Saafi. He was the one that introduced me to the boys, first game we played was touch.  It was a good friendly game.  As the year went past I made new friends boys and girls also teachers.

I have enjoyed been part of team 5 we have great memories and some not so good. Sports - first sport of the year was tag I was nervous but when you have great friends nothing is possible. This year I have been in tag,touch,rugby,soccer,softball,cricket,Ki o rahi, athletics and netball. It was a great experience playing sports with the boys it means alot to me knowing that the boys supported me too.

I am proud of all the things we have achieved this year.  Ki o rahi was a great game.  The first time I played it  and my team and I took it out. I was shocked,  when we won the team that we played in the final did us a haka!  This shows great sportsmanship, even if you lose or win still show respect.   This got me wondering if we should have a haka for school - for next year.

I will never forget those who help me throughout  the hard and easy times because without you amazing people I would've never got this far.   I would just like to say a big thank you. I will cherish my time I had with my friends,  for always being there for me when I needed you guys the most - thank you!
