It was on a Thursday morning last week May 21st, I woke up from a sleepless night, excited, I couldn’t wait to go to our class retreat in Mt Roskill. I was the first from my class to arrive and soon after Pepe rocked on up, it didn’t take long for the rest to arrive before we all car-pooled to go.
My car-pool was with Salote, Lupe, Sonya, Jane, Catherine. Salote’s brother-in-law was kind enough to drop us to hill borough . It was a rowdy funky music drive all the way, and thank goodness the trip was under an hour, more than that, I would’ve lost my hearing.
When we got to our destination we were allocated into our groups. Yours truly was paired up with Catherine and Jane. Brother Philip went through some house rules with us, such as taking shoes off before entering the house.
The two days was very interesting as it forced me to understand and work alongside Catherine and Jane as it was not what I was used to in class. The learning I got from being with Catherine and Jane was to put aside any negativity and get on with whatever tasks needed to be done. Our first activity was a treasure hunt, Brother Phillip gave us each of our groups a clue, then we were off for our adventure. Supper was after the big day of activities. Lasagne with potato wedges and mixed veggies for dinner. After supper had ended and we all ran upstairs to our bedroom, then a few minutes after resting we headed to the meeting room to play some games. The day ended when everyone had a shower before nine o’clock…. lights out. Most of the girls were scared even me so I slept with Ierei and we had our own little conversation with because we are best friends so to us it was normal to sleep in the same bed. After a while of talking we both went into a deep sleep.
The next day was when we have to check-out of the retreat centre and hit the road back to school. The experience forced me to work in a team and learn from others. It was kind of like camp, it was heart breaking when we left at least I had a great experience there and it was so fun.

On the 13th of may 2015 Room 7 went for their first swimming lesson in the swimming pool at the court.
We went from 12:00 - 12:30, I wasn't involved in swimming because I had a fever, when we got to the pool a lady named Pam greeted us, then we went into the pool (well the people that were swimming actually) it was funny because everybody was splashing (even though when you swim your not aloud to splash) and screaming because the water was cold. There were two instructors and there names are Joseph and Emma, there were two groups 1 and 2, group 1 was the group that had the people that were learning how to swim and group 2 were the people that were familiar in swimming.
Soon after that, each group got floaties and did streamline. Finally when everybody the lesson was done and they got out they were all drenched then went to the bathroom to get changed.
My swimming experience was awesome even though I didn’t swim.
