In 10 Years time

In 10 years time I will be 22 years old. I will have completed college. I will have completed my business degree which takes about 4 years. I will be renting an ordinary apartment in the city. I will have a rabbit called Larry.

Spend: I will be very careful with what I spend my money on. I will create a budget where I section my money. Before I purchase anything I will think about these things.
  1. Do I really need it
  2. Is it of good quality
  3. Is there a cheaper version

Save: I will budget my money well and try to save for a family trip. I will also save for an emergency like if my car breaks down.

Share: I will share my money with my mum and other family members. I also want to sponsor a child at world vision and provide them with food, water, shelter and a good education.

World Vision Scholarship Day

World vision is a generous organisation that supports children as well as families in developing countries by providing them with food, warm clothes, shelter, an education etc. World vision New Zealand works in 32 countries. World vision is also the company that does the 40 hour famine.
World vision has recently held a Scholarship Day for student in New Zealand that have participated in the 40 Hour Famine and because I was one of our schools top fundraisers I attended the Scholarship Day.
It was very entertaining. The student played a game. The aim of the game was to survive. You are first put in a team, there are 4 teams. Some teams began the game outside the border of the country. If you are lucky you will make it into the country on a working vesta. Once you have entered the country you will need to wait in line to receive a job in the factory.
The line is extremely long so it is difficult to earn money and if you don’t have money you can’t purchase food to survive and if you go without food for 5 minutes you die. Once you die you are dead. This is one way of dieing but you can also die if you have no money to become immunised at the health center. So the only way to survivor is to earn money. While you are trying to earn money the police walks around arresting people for no reason.
I received a fake Oscar for using my brain and for volunteering to work at the health center. Overall I had an amazing day. It was so fun and because the presentation completed early we went to Mcdonalds and got icecream.
My highlights

  • Winning an Oscar
  • Playing the game
  • Meeting others
  • Going to Mcdonald's

This is my week 8 thinkboard.  It is based on Integers. The question is -78 + ____ = 54 and the answer is 132. An Integer is a negative number.

Investigating Integers

This is my Investigating Integers presentation. During week 7 in maths, I learnt about Algebra, but now in week 8 our maths groups is focusing on Investigating Integers. Integers are negative numbers like -8 etc.

Parapara Tree

All around the world there are insect killing plants and trees like the Venus fly trap but have you ever heard of a bird killing tree. Native to New Zealand there is a tree called the Parapara tree. This tree is known to kill insects as well as birds. It uses a super sticky sap to trap the birds and until they starve to death.

New Zealand is known for its green grass and beautiful landscapes but if we grew Parapara trees everywhere it can make a big change to our country and affect our biodiversity. The tree will kill endangered bird species causing them to become extinct.

A group of children were at a local reserve one day and came across a dead Piwakawaka under some trees. They assumed a cat had attacked it and they covered it in leaf litter. They discovered the bird had been a victim of the Parapara tree.
