A Day To Remember!

A definite highlight for me to look forward to on Day 1 was KAYAKING! I mean I have loved paddling in these vessels ever since I started camp in year 5.

First of all we were given rules, not just any rules but RULES that were going to help us kayak better. It was quite a breeze there so we had to be cautious to kayak on the left only because it's better to paddle with the wind instead of paddling into the wind.

Anyway when it was my turn with my buddy MATTHEW RYAN, we gracefully enjoyed ourselves by relaxing on the way! It was quite lucky for me as I almost tipped my self out of the Vessel! We went around the green pole and headed to home base. Mr Burt announced that we had approximately 30 minutes to enjoy ourselves in the water. Sadly our time there was over. Time sure flies by quickly when you are having a lot of fun: I said. We headed over to the patchy grass above. Mr Burt had congratulated us for walking to the reserve making no fuss! We were on our way camp on our camp grounds and I said to my self, "TODAY WAS A DAY TO REMEMBER!

How to Conquer pitching a tent.

By Joshua and Matthew EQUIPMENT PACKAGE :Hammer,Fly.Pegs,Base,Poles,Guy Ropes

If you haven’t quite conquered the task of putting up a tent for camping, you should read these instructions. The very important part of using pegs, is to always set the pegs on a 45 degree angle. This is really important part of building a tent.Because if the pegs are on a 90 degree angle,the peg will fly out,with the wind. Ensure that when you are not using the equipment, place them in to the tent bag.

1.Now the first job is to unpack,the package and ensure that the following is in the bag i.e. Fly the base the pegs and the poles.

2. Now ensure that the base of the tent is flattened straight out. It is important.

3. Remember to hammer in the pegs on about a 45 degree because bad weather can pull out the pegs.And do the same with the other corners..

4. Finally set the poles across the base and Repeat the same thing on step 3 which is to Hammer the pegs on! Put it on the second Eyelitt.

5 Now hook all the hooks on to the poles across the base. After you tie up a knot like a shoe at the top.

Now cover the Poles with the fly. Make sure the door is facing the camp site.

Once again hammer the pegs on a 45 degree angle in to the guy ropes. Proceed with the other corners and sides again.

put the last pole through the tent door.

Now you are done!

You have now learnt how to pitch up a tent.

In Maths this year, we have been specifically learning about Statistics. It has been a challenge for me this year because we had to collect data through google docs spread sheet. After that we had to make a form. Everyone had different unique ideas but I chose WHO IS YOU FAVOURITE 7's Team". As you can see above on my pie graph, SAMOA(my Culture) is the most popular 7's team. The least popular is Russia, England, South Africa and Tonga.

In the end of my pie graph, I felt like doing another Pie Graph!
