Writing by Haley

Writing is awesome. I like it because you get to write what ever you like and because I like reading it with my friends you get to us a pen or a pencil and some times you get to draw with your writing. I like it when you can work with a teacher or on your own

Linwood park

Some geography students from the University of Canterbury wanted to find out what we use the park for. We drew pictures showing the places we like or don't like. We had to explain why we felt the way we did.

Yesterday we installed these crosses from the The Fields of Remembrance Trust. The Trust's objective is for communities across New Zealand to create Fields of Remembrance to honour those in their community who served and died in World War I.

The people named on our crosses come from our region - they all died in service for our country. Also included are a nurse, and heroes who won the Victoria Cross and died in battle, Sergeant Dave Gallaher, captain of the All Blacks, was killed at Passchendaele. Private Basil Mercer was the youngest to be killed.  He was just 17 years old.

There are many more soldiers from our area who fought.  Their names can be found on town memorials and Rolls of Honour in schools, halls, RSAs and churches.

Hints for Healthy Heroes -My Good Deeds


Your task here is a simple one but an important one. 
Try and do at least one thing every day for someone without having to be asked.
It could  be for your parent/s, a teacher, a friend, someone at school who you don't know (like a younger student), someone at school you wouldn't usually talk to etc. Try and do something every day for someone and remember that you need to do it without first being asked. It may be as simple as opening a door for someone, pushing in the chairs for your teacher, doing the dishes or cleaning your room.
