Kevin Durant is my sporting hero because he plays for my favourite NBA team which is Golden State Warriors. He is very talented at what he does and enjoys doing it. I look up to him because of the moves that he does and how a good sportsmen person he is. When he's not playing he is cheering and supporting his fellow plays and encouraging them like me. Kevin Durant is my sporting hero and will always be.

Activity 3 - In honour of the rise in popularity of the ‘selfie,’ take a selfie and post it on your blog. Try to show us at least one of your hobbies or one your favourite things (maybe a special toy or book).

Summer Learning Journey Day 1 Activity 2

Summer Learning Journey Day 1 Activity 2 

Activity 2 - Imagine that instead of spending the money on the movies, Peter Jackson decided to give all of this money to you. Lucky you! On your blog, tell us what you would do with $300 million dollars. How would you spend it? It is a lot of money so please think carefully about it and spend it wisely :-)

If I had this much money I would first take 100 Million and split it equal with my family.
I would then put at least 50 Million towards StarShip Hospital.
After that I then have at least 150 million and I would then put 20 million aside for back up in case something happens and I need money.
I would then put that 130 million towards my city and help families have the house of there dreams. Also give a place for homeless people to stay and have a roof over there head like I do.

Summer Learning Journey Week 4 Day 1

Summer Learning Journey Week 4 Day 1 

Activity 1 - On your blog, tell us what you and your family do to celebrate special events, such as birthdays. Do you have a special meal or go to a specific place? In our house, we usually make a pizza and bake a special cake. What about you?

When it comes to Birthdays we usually go out like for dinner or lunch. Then right after that we then choose something from the Warehouse. Then after we go and get the cake we either get 2 or even 3 cakes but when it's you're 13th or 16th birthday you get 4 cakes and 3 cheesecakes. For the last minute of your birthday you get to choose what you want for your room but you have one hour whether it's 3 phones or even 4 tablets. You get to keep it all. This is what we do for our birthdays.

Summer Learning Journey Day 5 Activity 3

Summer Learning Journey Day 5 Activity 3 

Activity 3 - The new Labour government have promised to give up to three years of free post-secondary education to all New Zealanders by 2020!
On your blog, tell us what you think. Should students have to pay money (tuition fees) to go to university? Why or why not?

I think that we should not be paying in order to go to university because we are doing it for our education. Some of us can't even afford to go to university because it is to expensive for us. If we don't pay for tuition fees then we would be able to all learn and have an education. Therefore, I personally think that we should not be paying for tuition fees.
