Conclusion : Overall Summary

Just imagine a day where people got the chance to put themselves in others shoes, do what they do, think what they think, see what they see, go thru everything they have, and Live their Life. What does empathy really LOOK like.

Empathy is something that is hardly discussed in this world, but it is something thats needs to be talked about. There are many reason to show empathy and why to show it, one of it being that the world would be a much much happier place, people would feel like they belong, there would be no segregation, and the world will be a better place to live.

There are many reasons and many ways to show empathy. Practising Empathy is the biggest skill in life, the world is basically full angry people. Showing Empathy can help you, and others , lead you to a brighter future.

Sympathy is often muddled up with empathy, but there are different meanings to these two terms. Empathy is having the ability to understand and to share feelings of another. Sympathy on the other hand, is having sorrow and pity for another.

Empathy is something that need to be talked about, really often. People nowadays need to be empathetic towards others. Be Empathetic.

Immersion Assembly

Term 3 has came and gone and I must admit it was a pretty hard term, but now, after all the things that we have done I have to say I'm excited to see what this term brings, standing at the back of the hall fascinated at the way people dressed I was surprised by our topic.

Mr Burt had a device tapped to his stomach, others were dressed as french artist, and some were dressed in colours from the colour tray. Art Attack was our theme so all teams were assigned to prepare a show/play about the main topic that they would be talking about.

Time flew fast and it was the last team, Team 5. In my head I was absolutely blank I had no idea what was happening. I sat there and looked at the way they painted, steady strokes was made through the Team 5 performing session.

I looked towards the board where the 3 pieces of papers, 2 was black and one was white. Ms Langitupu was on the left side along with Ms Paget, in the middle was Mrs Nua and Mrs Squires, and on the right was Mr Barks and Mrs Clark.

At first I thought the paintings were ninjas but as the photo started to fall into piece I started to see what they were drawing. I call it body painting it were you create a image that look like something else but really its a body part. Like today the body part was a face.                                                                                                                                                                    There were 3 faces Mrs Langitupu and Mrs Paget was painting Mr Jacobsen, Mrs Nua and Mrs Squires painted Mrs Jarman, and Mr Barks and Mrs Clark had the chance to paint Mr Burt.

Over all the day was great, watching all the performances gave me sense of what teams were learning about.

Elections 2014.

I woke up at 6:00 ready to go to Whangarei, but wait were was my aunty. I jumped up and ran towards the door, just find she was gone. 20th September, it's elections day today that's right I forgot she had told me the other night she's going to go and vote before we go.

The General Elections took place on the 20th of September it's where Party's are determined to rule the New Zealand Parliament , and come head to head with each other and battle for New Zealanders vote. 

It was half past 6:00 and my aunty had returned, me being nosey I asked her who she had voted for. She replied 'If only we were aloud 2 votes'. Her husband voted for something else and she had voted for a different party.  

National is promising One – they live within our means. Two – they start paying off debt, and 

Three – they will keep generating new jobs as well as working for New Zealand Families and Local Communities

Labour is promising that they will make sure that Kiwi Kids get a good start in life, the Policies will give parent more time to actually be parents and they will empower young student to succeed at school as well as outside school.
