Pull Reasons (Positive)
There are more people moving from Tokelau
because they find better things over in New
Zealand . They are all being attracted by certain
things . Like better education , and better
technology .There are a lot more migrants
moving over from Tokelau to New Zealand .
For scholarships , the school doesn’t hand
it out , but they must earn it shown through
education and work . Another reason is ,
a better lifestyle .Parents in Tokelau
leave their origin country to  get better
living conditions for their family .
So their children grow up in a
better environment and have

Push Reasons (Negative)
Unlike when people leave from Tokelau ,
for positive reasons , They leave
because there is something bad that
may threaten their future . Maybe even
families kids . They leave Like climate
change . Meaning the temperature
would raise the heat almost making
it unbearable to live with . Another
reason , is because there are storms that

Tokelau In 20 Years Time?

Tokelau in 20 years Time.

Tokelau in 20 years Time. What would that look like? One outcome is that they have reached high potential. Or they could plummet under rising sea levels. If that does happen, however maybe Tokelau would have been evacuated by their friendly country New Zealand. Or, maybe it could be the other way around and Tokelau would be one of the most famous countries yet becoming a world internet hub.  

Tokelau hasn't really been their own country so maybe in due time, that could change because they could become independent not having to be so reliant on New Zealand's resources again being a Solo country. Even better, If they were so advanced, they could develop technology if not better than anyone else's tech in the future. 

Or if not any of these outcomes, They haven't changed much at all. And they've chosen to remain this way. They might have chosen to stay with true to their traditions. Only making small changes. Like their seawall for example. Because at that time, The sea levels would have probably risen by then.

Science Term 2 : What Have We Learned?

For the last few weeks and so , We have been learning abut several subjects . Cells and Microscopes . Microscopes came first but It was more or so about seeing cells . We used microscopes to see a lot more than just a tiny object . Me , Lyndon and Montel were the first to nail a hd view on really small words using the microscopes.

Learning about cells was what was going on inside our bodies . There was more than just eating , swallowing , and so on . Like the nuclear membrane . The barrier around the nucleus . The core of the cell . We learned several more things about the cells . And it was very surprising for us to learn. 

We also learned about living things , How they work and how they function. All of this coming near to the end of the term with a whole lot of exams ahead of me . Of us .

Another thing I learned , 
M - Movement            G - Growth
R - Respiration            R - Reproduction
S - Sensitivity              E - Excretion
                                     N - Nutrition


To be honest , The term went really fast.

Climate Change

What is climate Change?
Climate change is the catch-all term for the shift in worldwide weather phenomena associated with an increase in global average temperatures. It's real and temperatures have been going up around the world for many decades.

The normal or reliable temperature records began in 1850 and our world is now about one degree Celsius hotter than it was in the period between 1850 and 1900 . This was commonly referred to as the "pre-industrial" average .


This change is even more visible over a short period of time compared to the average temperatures in in 1961 and 1990  . Last year was 0.68 degrees warmer , while 2016 was 0.8 degrees warmer . Thanks to an extra boost from the naturally occurring El Nino weather system.

I have been trying to practice some simple chords slowly improving heading onto a actual song . I'm still on practising basics though . I've been trying to learn some songs but my main goal is to try and nail Tennessee Whiskey  . I've been using my class time to try to nail simple chords . I'm only making slight improvements though

English - One Experience From My Lifetime



After Lunch Fitness - Last Year , Though lunch
breaks were the 20 minutes of fun outside doing
anything we wanted except anything that was bad .
Except start fights and all of that . But anyways ,
After lunch there was something to do before going
into class and just lie there pretending we were dying
after fitness . Either that or it was bragging about getting
there faster than anyone else . But fitness had it’s perks .
One day we would only last 30 seconds before lying on
the ground , the next , We would probably last 5 or 10
minutes doing planks (I only lasted 2 minutes). Every
day somebody would improve something . And we
would have to be proud of that because our teachers
believed that we could do anything . At one point ,
We would have to run around the school block , go
in through the Summerville entrance , and then run
all the way through the gates back to the top courts .
It was struggling . It really was . I tried to prove myself
resilient by trying to keep up with the faster boys that
would always get there before me . Every time I would
slightly improve even by the smallest bit . Even if no
one recognized it I would always because It’s Me
running . Or jogging .

At one point in time , It was just splitting into three
different groups doing our different exercises . One
of them was Wall or ground pushups and Shuttle Runs ,
One of them was Squats and Step ups , The last one was
…. Planks and Star Jumps . I nailed the Squats and the
Step Ups . Sometimes the girls were ashamed of doing
the Squats . I wasn’t . I considered the Squat* an exercise .
Either that or they were too lazy .

Now what does resilience mean to me exactly? Resilience…
To me , Resilience to me meant not backing down or at least
not trying to back down . It also meant going to my limits if I
wanted get something then I had to strive to get it . I wouldn’t
exactly die while doing it . But If that “ Something ” I wanted
was REALLY , REALLY , Precious to me , I would have to do
what it takes not letting anything stop me in the process . Whether
It was getting parent lectures saying that “ I Suck ” or “ You shouldn’t
be doing it anymore ” , I wouldn’t back down if It meant so much .

It is important to be resilient because Getting a bad comment ,
And letting it get to you wanting redemption as in punch them in
the face , You’d probably think this is what’s best for them . But
worry about only yourself not letting negative comments or thoughts
get to your mind . Even if they punch you in the face , Stand your
ground . Maybe a less violent option will do . Standing your ground
is relatable to resilience because you haven’t backed down from anything .
Whether it was a class test , Or a tournament.
