Maree's Opinion

Agree Or Disagree 

I agree that pests should be treated with some respects. Because in the article  I read it said that This
group wants New Zealanders to own only one cat and not to get a new pet, if their cat dies.
They state that cats are “pests” which are “wiping out our native birds". Cats hunt birds,
lizards, insects and other wildlife. And I don't like it how there saying that we can only have
one pet and not get a new one if your pet cat dies. and to me it's kind of dumb that cats
turn into pests which are wiping out our native birds and that cats are hunting lizards birds
insects and other wildlife. that is so not fair why can't we help to do something to make
our animals that are pests better so that they can get along with native animals and so they
can be friends and now kill other animals because it is not fair.

New Zealand In 2048

(Life )New Zealand in  2048

Intro : Today we will be talking, taking and exploring with you about New Zealand in 2048.
 This writing is going to be about ( Mostly ) New Zealand in 2048 and is also going to explain
to you about what the future is going to be like in 2048. Your future might not be as simple or
definitely fantastic as my future is 2048 ( If I’m still alive) But anyways let’s carry on with our

Para 1 : What is the Environment is 2048? And were back, So the environment in 2048 is
Global warming like Foods, Tornado’s, natural disaster’s air pollution, well so not amazing and I can say it’s a bit amazing because they still have Food. ( Well who here wouldn’t love
food) You can tell already that I am into food but yeah anyways lets just carry on.

Para 2 : Is there going to be amazing electronics in 2048 ? Well Maybe yes or maybe no I
would have to go with both because yes there will be more inventions and no because there
will still be same inventions that exist’s in 2048 but yeah let’s not worry about that because
we still will enjoy using electronics like phones , cars robotics and all of those creative
electronics in our 2048 world.

Para 3 : What will the language be like in 2048 ? I Belive that our language in 2048 would
still be the same but words and languages might change and have new words but yeah.
My one important thing about Language is to make sure that people are not using proper
language and to stop racism language because that is rude to call people black or white
like how would you feel if someone called you names and calling you black and white. It’s
probably because you called them names and now they would want to do it back to you,
So if i were you I would treat people the way that I would want to be treated.

Conclusion : So thank you for reading my writing about New zealand in 2048. I hope
you have learnt something and please pass it on if you see someone that is being
disrespectful towaards you or towards anyone else. So please be free to comment down
below and leave some comments that I could use to make my writing more interesting and

Writing about Slavery...

Slavery is not a a good thing but it is good to people that want money money money!
If i saw a person that was for sale at a market I would buy them and literally set them free
Because it is unfair that people work for free for you because then people are literally used to slaves.

Para 1: History of slavery? Did you know that in the early events. In 1619 twenty africans were
brought to the english and to the colony of jamestown, Virginia to. Historians are undecided if the
illegal practices of slavery began there!, even though since at least some of them had the status of
the indentured servants!!!

Para 2 : Why do people have slaves? Well people have slaves because they want other people to
do there jobs and all that stuff so they can keep on getting heeps and heeps more money. People
also want slaves just because of money money money and because they want to become richer and
richer, but people should know that it is not fair to treat other as there slaves even though these people
that are being sold at markets are being tricked and they have no idea about what there doing being
sold at the markets and all that.

Para 3 : Slaves in 2018 ? Well I could say that Slavery still exiss in some countries like Libya but I
mostly think that Slavery does not exist that much in 2018 because it would unfair if it still existed in
2018. Even if it was happening in 2018 I would try and escape from this place because some slaves
can even die. Did you know that slaves do not get paid and that sometimes slaves don’t get a choice
to eat or to have a break?

Conclusion : Well I hoped you have enjoyed reading my writing about Slavery and I know that Slavery
to me is a important and I would really really love and I would enjoy it if people can help and donate
money for charity to stop Slavery. To me Slavery is a bad thing to me because even though in the past
some slaves actually died for being forced to do a lot of jobs and Slaves have even been forced to do
things that they would’nt want to do.

This person is my Grandmother I wanted to share this story with everyone that is reading it because it is a person that i love and care about and my grandmother and she is a person that I looked after me, a person that fed me food and also made sure that me and my siblings had a warm and comfy place to sleep on.So my grandmother was a very lovely and quiet person, she loved it when we always helped her to bake. We used to bake cakes, make cupcakes and make different types of desserts it was amazing when we baked with her the smell of the baking was delicious, fabulous and it smelled really tasty and scrumbscious it smelled really nice that you could even fall in love with it.
Anyways let's get back to where i was oh yeah my grandmother had passed away when I was at the age of 8 and it was very sad and emotional because at her funeral I couldn't even cry, but when my grandmother funeral was finish I started to cry because going back to her house and packing out all of her stuff it was emotional because just remembering all the memories we’ve had in that house and walking into her room was like a dream of a story like a girl walks in and just starts to cry and feel emotional.

Children Need To Go To School

It is vital that all children attend school to gain an education. At school children are
taught a range of knowledge and skills that they will need to succeed in the future. For
example, children learn to read and write which enables them to communicate with others.
Without the ability to read or write, everyday life would be a struggle; you would not be able
to read your bills, find a job or learn about new things. Therefore, school is really important
to enable children to have a successful future.

My six word story

I want money - have to earn.
God gives - give it back.
Parents love you - love them back.
Need something - show and earn it.

Anyone that is crying - help them cause they helped you.Show your teacher respect - And they’ll
show you respect.

The Rip

The Rip
You never know how much someone means to you until you are faced with the thought of losing them.
This is something that I learnt the hard way.

I was twelve years old and I was enjoying my first summer in New Zealand. Mum had let me
spend some of the holiday with my friend Atawhai, who was visiting her Nana and their Marae
up in the Bay of Islands. We had been camping out in front of her Nana’s house for two weeks
and I was having an incredible time. Atawhai had taught me how to row, to fish and catch kaimoana
and we had spent a lot of time trying out all of her cousins games on the Playstation. I was enjoying
it so much that my family decided to drive up and spend the last few days of the holiday with me.

When Mum, Tom and my siblings reached Atawhai’s Nana’s place, they decided it would be nice
to take Atawhai out for the day. They chose a beach about half an hour away as it was somewhere
Atawhai hadn’t been before. We bought a packed lunch and found a place along the long sandy
beach. The tide was out so Tom suggested that we eat and play on the beach before we went
swimming later on. I watched the calm turquoise water fifty metres from us and longed to dive in
because it was a scorcher of a day.

An hour later I asked Tom if it was okay for Charlie, Atawhai and I to look for Pipi’s by the ocean.
I was really keen to show Charlie what I had learnt about Kai Moana. As we were twins, it was
pretty rare for me to learn something that he didn’t know! We were pretty successful and Tom came
down with some of the girls buckets for us to put the Pipis in.
“It’s alright if you want to go in for a swim now” said Tom, smiling as he looked at our haul “I’ll
bring your sisters down in a few minutes”.
“Thanks Tom” I replied. Tom was a pretty cool guy.

We had our toggs on underneath our clothes, so we were able to jump into the water pretty quickly.
Charlie and I felt pretty confident in the water, we had been champion swimmers back home and
Tom was taking us to junior life saving lessons before we arrived in New Zealand. I dove straight
into the surf, cherishing the feel of the cold salty water on my skin; it felt like heaven in the heat
of the day.

Charlie and I decided to swim a little deeper. We loved having competitions to see who could
swim the fastest or hold their breath the longest. Atawhai decided to wait in the shallows for our
three younger sisters. She was the youngest in her family so she enjoyed spending time with them.
Charlie and I got so caught up in our competitions that we forgot that she was still waiting there after
a while. We didn’t realise that we were moving further away from her and the shore.

Suddenly, Charlie disappeared from my vision. When I turned around to look for him I saw
treading water about ten metres from where he had last been. He was reaching his arms high up
into the air as if he was grabbing for something that was floating just above the surface.
“Cut it out Charlie, you’re not funny” I laughed, but Charlie did not reply. His face grew pale and
he began to move faster. It looked like he was climbing a steep imaginary staircase just under the

I turned around to look at Atawhai and spotted the panic in her eyes. We both recognised that
Charlie was drowning, although I refused to believe it. How could my brother, the champion
swimmer drown? It didn’t make any sense.
“He’s caught in a rip current” shouted Atawhai “ I’ll call for help”
I looked back at Charlie in desperation, remembering our life saving lessons. I knew that if I
swam out to grab Charlie he would push me down and drown me too.

As Atawhai waved frantically back at our family, Tom and my little sisters waved back. They
didn’t understand what was happening so Tom began to bring my sisters down for their swim.
Atawhai had a tough decision to make. She turned back to look at Charlie, who was growing paler
and continuing to panic. We hadn’t learnt about rips before so he did not understand what was
happening to him.

Atawhai dove in and swam to where I was treading water. She told me that we needed to calm
Charlie down and that he needed to let the rip take him further out to sea. I didn’t hear what she
told him, but somehow she managed to get through to him and he began drifting out. We swam
closer to Charlie and pretty soon we were being pulled out by the rip as well. I was pretty scared,
but I knew if I followed Atawhai’s instructions and kept calm I would be okay. I wasn’t so sure
about Charlie though.

We were swept out for several minutes before Atawhai gave her next instruction. We swam
sideways so that we were following the coastline and kept going until we could no longer feel the
pull of the rip. It felt like we had been swimming for hours and I knew that it was adrenaline that
was keeping me going. I kept glancing over at Charlie to make sure that he was okay. Atawhai made
sure that we didn’t swim too fast for him as she knew he would be pretty tired.

Finally we were able to swim back into the shore. Charlie collapsed as soon as he reached the sand.
Tom ran out to us, he was angry at first, because he thought that we had swam out that far on
purpose, but he soon knew something was wrong when he saw Charlie. It didn’t take long to
explain to him what had happened and his anger turned to concern pretty quickly.

That evening we returned to the campsite where my family were staying. Charlie had been checked
out by a doctor and given the all clear and we had learnt a valuable lesson about rips. Mum decided
to cook up the Pipi’s we had caught, despite being told by Atawhai that they wouldn’t be ready.
Once again, Atawhai was right and they were still pretty sandy after being cooked, but we didn’t
care. We were so relieved to have Charlie home safe and I had never felt so glad to have a friend
like Atawhai.
