Sams Life Education Summary

Life Education Summary

As part of the school health program in Room 6 we just attended the Life Education classroom. For the last two weeks Reremoana has been doing the Life Education van to learn about all the types of ways you can bully people without knowing you are doing it. Harold the giraffe is a puppet that teaches kids how to not bully people online and offline in three ways of being a bully online and offline. I thought it was sad when some poor kids put some photos on Instagram and got cyber bullied by people they didn’t know or had heard of.

Life Education!

Life education:
Have you been on the life education bus? Have you seen Harold?  Well if not you will enjoy this us trip so much that you will never want to leave. It starts off great, your class in a line and walking up into the mobile classroom where harold stays. After we have sitten down inside the bus we are greeted with a welcoming lady who tells us what we will do today.

To start off the leason, the lady in the bus told us a little bit about bullying,mean and rude. Each year when we go into the education bus we have a different topic to learn about. This year was about bullying,mean and rude. Before we could see Harold we had to watch two short videos  about kids around our age who have had problems when online. After we watched a video about the kids we shorted different questions out into problems online or problems off line. We figured out that most of the problems and questions were related to online or both online and offline scenarios. Then just for a bit of fun before we watched our second video we played a game called look up look down which was a great game. The times that she was talking were a bit boring but I realized that all the things she was saying were really meaningful and the helped us with our learning.

For anyone who has not been on the life education bus before you will love it! It's a great and new way of learning with fun games too. The bus is not to big but at the same time it's not too small. It's so cool and I would hate to miss out on going. I can still remember when I first went on the bus when I was five and the nice lady gave me a pencil and a sticker. Even though I have only got that pencil once I still get stickers every year.(even though it's a bit childish) You will never forget this amazing experience so enjoy it while you can go.

Overall today was great even though I did not get to experience both the days we had the bus come I still really enjoyed learning about the three different topics.You will love going on the bus if you haven’t already been.

Thanks for reading

-And Harold!

Life Education Evaluation - Dylan

Life Education Evaluation

Is Life Education worth it? Yes, it is. I am here to write an evaluation on Life Education. Life Education is a great way to learn things, and it is more entertaining than normal education.

Let's talk about the good bits. To keep you focused, every now and again you’ll get to play a quick and easy game with the whole class. This means no-one is off-task, resulting in a better way to learn. They can teach you the difference between rude, mean and bully. They teach you about cyber-bullying, which is online bullying, and normal bullying, which is offline bullying. They don’t just talk, they also use media to keep you interested. They also get everyone involved rather than just one or two people. The main great thing about them is that EVERYONE is always involved and on task, unlike in a normal class when people are on task and not ONCE when everyone’s focused. It’s also a lot more quiet. If you do it you’ll meet harold, a cute little giraffe (Not a real one, I mean a puppet, but DON’T CALL HIM THAT!)

I have to tell you the negative side to it as well. It is very positive, so there is not much to put here, but here is the one’s I can think of. The first problem is the time. The sessions are a good duration, but they don’t happen very often. You get a session once a week, and a session is an hour or 2, so it’s not that much. The second problem is that it is a little expensive, due to how short it is. That’s the negative side.

Now you ask if it’s worth it? It definitely is. It is a great thing to do, and because of how good it is, it’s worth paying the few extra dollars that makes it expensive. If you read this then you should now know if it is worth it or not, which I would say it is!

Marae Trip

On the 29th of May, Room 5,6,7,8,17,18, Went to the Manurewa Marae on Finlayson Street. We went on four buses the most part I hated on the bus was the load of Screaming. As we arrived at the Marae Camille, Alysha, Zoe, Aaliyah, and I were the Karanga girls I was super nervous at the start begging hoppily we don't screw up but we took it very well. We lined up in boys and girls, girls at the front and boys at the back the Karanga girls had to go at the very front.

We were greeted and welcomed onto the Marae by both people. These two people leaded us to sit down under neath a shelter. They began to tell a speech in Maori we were all trying our best to understand most of the Maori language. Then after they told there speech Mr fourie Stood up to tell his speech some people were smiling and giggling as he began to tell his speech. But I think Mr Fourie did a awesome job.

After the speeches were done we went for Morning tea we didn’t sit on the grass because it was a bit wet so we sat on the bench next to the toilets. The lady and the Man showed us some out of bounce areas that we were not allowed to go. After morning tea eating we got to have a little bit of playtime next to the bench there was a fileld. Some people were doing gymnastics some people were playing tag and some people were just chilling and talking to their friends.

After morning tea we got split up into groups room 17,18,7, Were group A and room 5,6,8, Were group B I was in group B our first activity was heading into the whari but we were told to take off our shoes but we were allowed to wear socks. Our first thing we learnt and did inside the whari was an acting show. I’ve got to tell you there was some pretty funny embarrassments going on. We all laughed giggled and having fun watching these funny people acting. The actors were Katie,Kalush,Danielle,Avansh,Scarlet,Samantha they did some pretty good acting.

After our acting show was over we got told some interesting facts about these people who have pictures about them on the wall. And we got told some different arts that were also near the door we got to have a little look around.

After we finished our first activity we headed outside and put on our shoes and got ready for our next activity it was playing a game in Maori. We were all introduced by a lady she showed us some movements and words we had to do before the game. Basically what you do is you do what the lady ask you to do and she says the words in Maori for the movements Maunga was for whari or house tekoteko was putting up two fingers on you’re head like a piece sign. (I forgot the rest of the movements and the words sorry).

After we did our two activities we headed over for lunch after lunch eating we had a bit of playtime but the some students got to go to the field across the road I didn’t get to go over because It was boys soccer only and I don’t really play soccer but it was alright I moved on I also saw Mr Worsop and Mrs Gordon playing Split the banana this is how you play if one of the people who you are playing with lose they have to spread out there legs and if the other person wins one round or another they don’t have to spread the legs I got to tell you it was pretty funny.

After Lunch we all headed into the whari for a waiata or a karakia It was pretty hard to pronounce and the words were difficult to follow as well but we did get the hang of it a little. After our lessons in the whari we went out and put our shoes back on and went to go grab our bags. And ready to head on the bus back to school. After we arrived at school we all meet at the court yard we thank the parents for helping and we also thanked Miss Bailey for Organizing the day (Well Mitchell did).  I had such a fun time at the Marae It was such a great experience and I learnt different types of things that I haven’t been thought before.
This day was awesome.
