Elections! Who do I vote for 2017

Political party
In Social studies I studied Political party policies of Education, Housing and health. The education policy that I best supported was the Maori party because they provide free schooling for everyone in primary and secondary schools. They provide free after school care and holidays programmes for the kids. So if your parents a going work They can drop their children of to after school care. I like the idea of giving children free education so that there parents don’t struggle working for there kids. It lets all kids around the world have the opportunity to learn. For the housing policy I chose Maori party because it’s aiming to end homelessness by 2020. Therefore everyone gets to live in a house. There will be more house for people to move in to. There’s a higher chance that people get to live in a house. The health policy I chose Nz top’s policy because then we get to see our younger generation grow healthy. We get to see them playing around on the parks with other kids. Getting to make New friends. We know when Our kids go out there safe. We don’t have to worry. The area will be safe.

The party I vote for in 2017 is Maori because there policies keep our younger and homeless people safe. Ending the homeless and keeping our kids safe. I am a Maori party Supporter.

Survival

Survival Activity
My group worked on a project about survival. We all got Hyped because we were flowing with ideas. My group was told to do steps on how we were to survive on an island if we got lost.  We were confident in our work.  

We chose our leader carefully, but instead of having one leader, we decided that we all would become leaders. The reason behind this was because we all had equal ideas.

During our work we had a little bit of struggles, because we had to many ideas on what we could do. We could of wrote a list of what we could do, but we pulled through an only included the ideas that were important to the situation.

I think our group completed this task because we were all focused and had loads of thoughts to put in the tasks. Lasalle made good decisions on our plans. Ben made good decisions on the battlefield, Ben had ideas on how to defeat the pirates and the formations we stand in. and Taki made good decisions on how we should build our hideout. He had a lot of ideas.

Social Reflection

SCOTLAND

In term Two I conducted a social Inquiry on Migration. My social inquiry focused on the movement of migrants from Scotland to New Zealand. The push reason why Scottish left their country of origin was the war that broke out in Scotland. The war was causing Scottish people to come to New Zealand. They all settled in Otago, Where they were able to get better futures and live freely. While they were in Otago they got jobs as Farmers,miners from fife and being shopkeepers.  Also some of the Scottish where orphanages that came to New Zealand. By 1936 the number of scots increased, That was the highest it’s been ever since 1886. The Pull reason to why Scots came to New Zealand was because they were able to find themselves better futures. Almost half of the scots that moved to New Zealand in 2013 were all professional workers.

CAMP HIGHLIGHT

It was a nice morning to wake up to. I was so excited to go camp for 2 days. Once we got to school I walked around looking for people in my year group so I can hang out with them. After waiting for a while I finally found My friends.

It was the first day of camp, Everyone was excited to get there. Once the time hit to go we all got on the bus and headed to our camp site. Once we got to the camp site we had to go for a 10k hike. I found this fun because everyone were wearing there good gear and all of it was getting dirty. There were a lot of mud pools which we had to walk through. We walk all the way to the top of the mountain. We finally hit the top, we had a little lunch break. Then we started to walking again. We hit the part of the mountain where it goes straight down. This was fun because we got to run down the stairs.

Mr Robertson Story

In our past Social Study class We had a Very special guess come in and talk about her Migration. This Special Guess Was Mrs Robertson. She talked about When she came to New Zealand and why she came to New Zealand. Mrs Robertson came to New Zealand In 1962 to full fill her dads Dreams. Her purpose of coming to New Zealand Was so she can work For money to get the supplies to build a Pakeha house In Samoa. The only Problem was when she came she never understood English. So she would always ask questions On what to do. She said she would always go to the Library.
