School is AMAZING! But let me tell you about my life,excluding all personal info, OBVIOUSLY!

As many of you may know, my name is Sulia.I am 11 years old going on to 12 this year. I am a NZ citizen but I come from Tonga. I have plenty of favourite things to do, so I am just going to break down some of them. 1. I love spending time with Family, 2. Playing the piano, which can also be a hobby and 3. Singing.

I play Rippa Rugby and am now training and learning how to play Volleyball and Netball. NOW IT’S TIME FOR THE 2nd MOST AMAZING PART… FOOD! IF DON’T ALREADY KNOW I LOVE FOOD. I love eating fries/chips but IF IT HAS TO BE HEALTHY I also love eating strawberries and GREEN grapes.

Family is the most important part, my dad teaches my brothers how to play rugby and also teaches me steps to get a try for my team in Rippa Rugby. On the other hand my mum teaches me how to bake and how to play Volleyball and Netball, I love my brothers but sometimes they make MY HEAD BURST INTO FLAMES! But… we apologise after… a day. or two. Just kidding.

Anyways that is all I am going to say about my life.


Art ( Summer Learning Journal )

I have made a Google Slide to document my  Summer Learning Journal, so each day I will blog each slide I do. So here is my first slide


So far I have done more than 5 coloured activities which were all done in the Christmas folder in the colouring Book, here are the pictures that I have done.


If you saw my pictures you could see 2 photos that was different to the others, it is because those pictures were in the folder Diwali. ( An Indian Occasion where they celebrate ) I would also see that I have coloured more pictures in the Christmas folders than others, it is because the year is getting closer to Christmas and I need to maybe publish a blog about Christmas.


Summer Learning Journal

Here is my first completed picture from the first activity

This picture was in the folder called Christmas, and I chose this picture because it looked like the easiest pictures I could do. I chose colours that were common to cats and the last cat is green because I thought I needed to make it a bit different.

My Upcoming Story

Their mum explained that she was working for two weeks which is the whole holiday. As they were driving silently, they finally made it to their destination. Mia and Lucas got out of the car quietly and got out their suitcases sadley and went inside without saying a word to their mum instead of saying goodbye. 


Their grandma welcomed them warmly and led them to their rooms. As they were walking around the house they found a little room that was locked, so they called their grandma and asked why the room was locked. Grandma said aggressively and nicely at the same time to never go into that one specific room, Mia and Lucas started to get suspicious but never thought of it again. UNTIL they heard a knock on the secret room but it was the first time they heard it so they ignored.


This is only half of my story from my project called ” Lifting a Line “. Lifting a Line is when you write a story, then you pick your favourite sentence and then publish it as the new start of your story. I will publish the rest of my story when I have finished the rest of the parts.😄

Mission Day

Last Friday on the 23rd of September, it was Mission Day. First we went to the Liturgy and then we all had to bring a coin and each class had to put it in front of  the prayer table. After the Liturgy we all went back to class to do our tests, my class did a Te reo – a thon, later on we had to turn in our papers to our teacher, Mr.Bell. Then the bell rang for morning tea, during morning tea we had to buy as much raffle tickets as we could so that our name would be the common name that the teachers will pull out after school.


Following that we went to class and watched a movie called, Spirited Away which was 2 hours long, we watched the movie while Mr.Bell was marking our tests. Half way into the movie the bell rang for lunch, so we ate our lunch, bought some more raffle tickets and went in our bubbles to play some games. After lunch we went inside to quickly finish the movie before we went back to the canopy to do the raffle tickets. Later on, we finished the movie and went to the canopy for the teachers to pull out 3 raffle tickets. After they give out the prizes for the names that were picked, did our prayers and went back home.

Commonwealth Games Reflection

What are the Commonwealth Games?


The Commonwealth are games that Athletes enter for their Country. Commonwealth games are also different from the Olympic games because the Olympic Games is a Global sport for the whole world, but the Commonwealth games are just for original members that are in the Commonwealth Games.

What happened on the “ Road To Birmingham”?


We had to run as many laps as we could and we added up all the laps, turned them into kilometres and added it to our Road to Birmingham, because it was our goal to get to the finish line. We also could not travel because it cost too much money so we did it virtually. We had to virtually travel 1653.2km in 100 days, to get to the finish line.

Which Athlete did you choose/Why?


I chose Frances Davies, because I knew that she works hard and ecourges herself to reach her goal , which is very inspiring to me, it teaches me to never give up until I reach my goal.



4 Interesting Facts About Frances Davies!

  • Frances Davies was born in Rotorua
  • She was born 4th of March 1868
  • She started to play field hockey when she was six years old
  • At nine years old she started playing field hockey at Tauranga Girls College



How did we follow NZ during the games?


I watched the games with my uncle because he is the only one in my family that has sky TV to watch sports. The first time I watched only my chosen athlete but then my uncle encouraged me to watch some more sports with 

him so that I could discover more sports athletes.





I would like to do this again because it was so fun to find facts, and I would recommend this even if you are not sporty, because it will give you something to do instead of lying down on the couch being like a sack of potatoes. 😅


“How Can We Save Endangered Life”

We can save endangered creations by looking after our world more, because the world is a gift from God full of wondrous adventures. We can start off by throwing rubbish instead of throwing it everywhere. We can also look after  animals like birds that are endangered because of pests.


Pests like possums, ferrets, feral cats and lots more that eat little bird eggs, kill animals and eat them which makes animals get extinct and that is very bad because god gifted us food, sheep using its fur to make clothes. We also need to stop cutting down healthy trees all the time because trees give us oxygen to breathe and birds use it to hide from their predators.


We hurt the environment by building more and more factories which makes more smoke then the smoke goes up into the atmosphere and damages the atmosphere and hurt the birds that flies by with the smoke and makes them dirty. Another reason why we shouldn’t throw rubbish everywhere is because the rubbish goes into the drains and the drain takes the rubbish to the sea, which means that the sea creatures would think that the plastic is food and eat it, then they choke and die which is very sad. 





On Friday the 5th of August, we got the opportunity to go and learn about trees and pests, to protect the birds, trees, kiwis and ETC. In the morning we got to meet Chris,  Chris started to explain everything like how the traps work and how to use them.


After Chris explained everything we had a quick morning tea because the bus was waiting outside for us. When we got into the bus we had to wait for 20 min and then we made it to Cornwall park. It was so beautiful, relaxing and very fun to look at.


First we took a quick look at the map then we split up into 2 groups, one group went with Lisa and Charlie and the other group went with Chris. My group went with Charlie and Lisa first and the other group went with Chris/ Lisa and Charlie took my group for a walk and told us some facts about trees.


After we took a little walk we saw a tree with spider-webs and it looked like a Halloween tree instead of a Christmas tree. Later on we had to switch with the other group which meant the other group goes with Lisa and Charlie and my group goes with Chris.


First we had a look at one of the traps and one of the traps had the peanut butter licked off and we saw that the pest spit out some of the peanut butter. We also took a look at some of the other traps but it was all empty. But we found out that the pest that ate the peanut butter was a rat.


After taking a look at all the traps we all got some binoculars and tried to look for some birds. I saw a Fan Tail. It looked so beautiful and relaxed. After that we ate our lunch and played some games afterwards, then the bus arrived to pick us up. After another 20 min we  made it to school. We took a pest test and some of us got mixed up with all of the questions.


Later on we made our own tracking tunnels and some of us like me wanted to set our own outside. After that we went back home to rest. It was a really great experience.
