On wednesday the whole Manaiakalani cluster went on an adventure to Sylvia Park.It was the film festival!!.We all went in a bus, but the presenters went in a car.
When we walked into the theatre I saw hundreds of chairs. The chairs were as comfy as a marshmallow. The screen was taller than Mr Blakey. It was really cool.
I sat next to Jahzara in the front because we were presenters.It was amazing and my favourite movie was Stay Young.

Money is what we use to purchase the things we want. It comes from the reserve bank in Wellington.
I use money in a variety of ways. We need money because if we didn’t have enough we couldn’t buy a house, food or clothes.People go to work and earn money doing their jobs. Kids earn money by doing chores. When old people retire the government gives them money.

First we walked and walked through the tress and bushes to get to the wonderful Cathedral Cove.
While walking through the bushes I didn't even know what Cathedral Cove was. My mum wanted to surprise me and so I kept guessing what it would it be. I thought it may be a normal cathedral like in Christchurch or maybe the trees had made the cathedral.
But when I got to the Cathedral Cove it was .... a cave. I was so surprised when I saw it. My eyes nearly blew out of my head! It was fun.
Once we were back to the car we were so tired from two long walks in the bushes.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl called Ella. She had a lovely mum and dad. But one day Ella's mum got very sick and so one day she died. The family were very sad.
Time passed and Ella's dad married again there was joy in the family. But Ella's dad didn't know that the woman that he married was unkind to Ella.
Time passed and Ella's dad did.
Time passed and Ella's stepmother got more cruel and mad. She made Ella sleep in the attic. When everyone was asleep Ella would go downstairs and sit down by the fire and ashes. But one time the stepmother saw Ella sitting by the fire and so she called her Cinderella.
One day an invitation arrived saying the king was holding a grand ball at the castle. Cinderella wanted to go to the ball but the step sister's you can't go to the ball. You are our servant, you have to make our dress.
Cinderella did what she was told and made the dresses.
Cinderella's fairy godmother saw she was crying and patted her back and said, "that's okay my dear. I can get you to the ball."
So Cinderella's fairy godmother picked up her wand and pointed it in the sky then pointed at a pumpkin and it turned to the most beautiful carriage Cinderella had ever seen. She made her a lovely dress to wear to the ball.
"You must be home by midnight," said Cinderella's fairy godmother.
When Cinderella was walking down the stairs at the ball everyone stared and was jealous of her amazing beauty. The prince danced with Cinderella all night.
At the strike of midnight Cinderella ran out the door. One of her glass slippers fell off.
The prince found her slipper and told his guards to look for the maiden his lost this shoes.
The next day the prince and his guards set off to. They tried the slipper on every maiden in the land. But it couldn't fit any of them. When they got to Cinderella's house it didn't fit any of them. Cinderella came down the stairs. She tried it on and it was a perfect fit.
"Will you marry me," said the prince.
"Yes," said Cinderella.
They lived happily ever after.

Once upon a time Maui was sick of the sun going too fast. the days were too short and the nights were too long.
So one day he said to his brothers “Come and help me make the sun go slower” His brothers laughed and laughed “We can’t make the sun go more slowly” said Maui’s brothers “That’s crazy” But Maui never gave up.
So he managed to get his brothers to help him get the sun. But the brothers said “How are we going to control the sun?”
“We can use flax ropes.”
“Great idea Maui” his brothers said.
So once they got all the flax ropes ready they set off walking in the darkness.
When they got to the enormous rocks where the sun came up, they hid behind the enormous rocks so the sun wouldn’t see. Maui said to his brothers “When I say 1, 2, 3 jump out the grab the ropes and pull really tight.”
“1, 2, 3 Go!” The brothers jumped out and grabbed the ropes.
The sun said “Let me go, Let me go!”
“I don’t care” said Maui.
“But I am going to die”
“If I let you go, you have to promise you will go more slowly.”
“OK I promise” said the sun.
“Let go of the ropes” said Maui.
When the brothers got home they were happy because they could have plenty of time to hunt and plenty of time to fish.
