Day One of the Holidays and Back in School Uniform!

As my hands took hold of my mobile I scrolled down through all the messages and strangely I found a message from Mrs Tele'a. I read "Hi Mubasshira, can you meet me at school at 2:30, today in full school uniform, for a photo shoot for the NZ Herald". I quit out of my messages and was astonished by what time it was. I raced out of my bed, got changed into my school uniform and headed towards school.

Mrs Tele’a introduced me to the two men who were standing in the ICT room. “Hi my name is Simon Collins” and “My name is Dean”. As Dean started to talk to us, Toreka and I were given our positions to take. The article they were writing was mostly about how people leave college, work and university at certain ages.

After Dean had taken the photos he walked away and started to have a chat with Mrs Tele’a, while Simon sat beside Toreka and me. He started asking both of us questions and had a good look at our blogs. One of the things he did was to count how many countries our blog viewers come from. First of all he started by counting Toreka’s ones. She had around 80-90 countries. Simon started to count up my ones and at the end, our result was amazing. “104 countries represented on your blog!” Simon gasped.

“We had a great time talking to you” Simon said as we all walked towards the car park to see them off. After they had gone, Toreka decided to drop me off home. I had a great time that day, I was going to be in the NZ Herald! Now, that was an accomplishment for me.

If you would like to see the article that I was in, here is the link.
If you would want to know more about Simon Collins then here is the link.
I hope you enjoy reading the article.

Glee

Whenever our classroom is taught by Ms Muliaumaseali’i, we do art. During this time I was appointed as the chief movie-maker. The movie appeared on the screen in the hall during our performance for Glee, I felt immensely proud. I have really enjoyed doing this movie and here, I am about to reveal more.

You must be wondering what Glee is? Dancing, singing, rapping, hip hop, etc would be the type of club I would explain this as. What is my role in this club? I operate the sound and anything involving technical devices. I also make movies for this club.

Making movies for glee is really an exciting job since I get given advice from a professional director. Videos which were made for Glee weren’t really easy because they always need the best soundtrack that fits the movie and everything has to be perfect e.g the images, videos, etc. The video’s that are put in this movie have to be a certain length. I also have to make sure that I didn’t misconstrue Ms M when she tells me to do things for the movie.

Glee is a very cool club which makes people confident. It enables us to show and share our talent to people around our school. Sometimes, if we are lucky enough, we get to perform in front of a concert to! I think that this club is an amazing place to dance, sing and it’s also very entertaining for our school. Glee is all about being confident since this ‘C’ word inspires a lot of people and it tells them to take themselves to another stage.
