The Feast Day Of St Pius X

The Feast Day of St Pius X was on Wednesday but we celebrated it today. The whole of Saint Pius had Mass to celebrate the feast day of St Pius our pope. We then went into the hall and had a cake. We sang happy birthday and cut the cake. Pope Pius was a poor boy, he lived poor, grew up to be poor and wish to die poor. He even walked to school with bear feet because he didn't want his new pear of shoes dirty.

Music Mentoring
For four weeks a group of students made two songs. They wrote there own lyrics and and some help from a professional song writer and producer. My group wrote a song about the Islands and here are the lyrics :

Chorus :  Islands like dimands hot in the tropics 6 37 degrees oceans in motions palm trees are a swaying in the cool summers breeze

Verse 1
Stars in Heaven shining down on us, shining bright so we can see the right path,
friends and family look upon us as we live and cherish one another

Yeah we back in the islands and we don't wanna leave just kicking back here feeling the cool summer breeze you know it's true cos its just me and you walking through the path seeing pretty palm trees. Taking some pictures with a group saying cheese, click click cheese, click click cheese, taking some pictures with a group saying cheese

Chorus :
Islands like dimands hot in the tropics 6 37 degrees oceans in motions palm trees are a swaying in the cool summers breeze

Verse 2
I wanna take you to the island of Tonga and Samoa we wanna show you our finest things show how we sing, show you our island dreams
Coda :
Shining down, down, down
Shining bright, bright, bright
Shining stars, stars, stars
shining light, light, light

Chorus :
Islands like dimands hot in the tropics 6 37 degrees oceans in motions palm trees are a swaying in the cool summers breeze

That is the lyrics my group wrote about the islands and the video will be up soon.
First of all we brain stormed our ideas of words we would like to put in our song, my group just came up with random words and suddenly we thought of back home in the islands. We then came up with these wonderful lyrics.
We then jammed on some instruments and came up with a sound. We put it together and made a nice hummable beat. Finally we put our lyrics together with the beat and made this song. We recorded our song and did some editing and final touch's. The video will be posted up soon.

Report Cross Country

Cross country
Cross country is a sporting event where you run long distance. Where  schools, class’s and people run for race’s. Some cross country's are held around the world where you can bike or run.
Standing at the start line, waiting for that brick to smack together, suddenly, “ BANG” Off we ran. Together as a group the girls ran slowly and tried to keep up with each other. Time was ticking, we were running, huffing, puffing and slowly running.

I ran past the church and down the hill looked back and saw a lot of people. I soon became tired and lost my breath, talking well running really made me tired. It came to the second hill and I had already started walking. I felt good because I knew all the 12 yr old girls will come a place. After going up that hill, my friend and I started running then we stopped and ran again.  We often stopped running to catch our breath and then will just stand and talk. I was at the end of the race but then I was told one more round, I just felt like disappearing. I picked up my legs and started running for my second round.

I barely ran the second one round, I was so tired I stopped running then walked. I would often stop to catch my breath and start running again. Every time I had finished going up hills, I would stretch my legs then start running. I jogged the last couple of miles and when I was at the church, I walked slowly to the finish line.
Some face turned to see who was the last to arrive at the finish line, luckily I was not last. I was happy the race had finish, actually I was relieved.
