Neil Armstrong...

Neil Armstrong passed away August 25 2012 at the age of 82. He died from complications with his heart following surgery. America had known him as their American hero but he was always reluctant in being this. If you are wondering who Neil Armstrong was, he was the first person to step on the moon.

“One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”, In 1969 the commander of Apollo 11 Neil Armstrong, said these words while he was stepping on the moon. Along after him became his partner Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.

The Treacherous Track...

With a determined look on my face I was ready to start the race. “CLAP” everybody started to sprint off in a rush, some just jogged.

Huffing and puffing I got to end of the field, leading us into a big muddy patch of grass. Mud splattered everywhere on me it was hard to maneuver along the treacherous track.

As I got to the bush walk my muscles were aching and I was dreading to go the rest of the way. There were hanging over trees, steep steps I fell on because they were muddy and slippery. The bush walk wound, up and down, wound until we got to the end.With determination and perseverance I was able to carry on with the race. “OMG have we got far?” as I said with exhaustion.

As I passed people on the way I was quite embarrassed. I thought that I was one of the last people to arrive to the finish line.  As I got the near the finish line I gave it a big finish “Wooah” I go as I slipped and slid over on to the ground face flat. Everyone was laughing and I was too. I finally made it over the finish line. Yay! I go as I passed the finish line!

What are the harms of smoking...

To check of of these photos out go to:

It is really not a good idea to start smoking at a young age or even ever start smoking. Smoking can cause multiple health issues,  can affect your appearance and is a total waste of money. My advice to you is don’t even think about smoking.

Smoking can cause heart disease. The chemicals in cigarettes block your arteries because the blood isn’t flowing through all of the body properly. Later in life it can cause heart attacks. Most parents regret smoking after all the disasters happen, they want to see their children grow up and see their children’s children grow up, but for some it’s been too late.

Smoking can also cause damage to your face. Skin often becomes wrinkled, teeth turn yellow, fingers get stained, and you will have Bronson breath. If you start smoking you would probably look older than your age.

To save money for you and your family the best idea is to not smoke or if you do, quit smoking. For smokers you spend 14-15 dollars a packet, so $105 dollars a week if you smoke a pack a day. You are actually wasting money on something that could cause your death so basically you’re buying death.

If I had a chance to go back in time and stop my family from smoking I would, especially now that I know what happens to the human body when all the 4000 chemicals, in every cigarette,  go in it. So my message is to you to don’t ever start smoking.

Valerie Adams A disappointing loss...Awhina & Aliza

With a very disappointing loss Valerie Adams came in with the silver medal competing in the shot-put. Unfortunately she was defeated by Nadzeya Ostapchuk. Valerie’s personal best was 21.34 which didn’t match Nadzeya Ostapchuk’s winning shot of 21.36. Following the competition she had a personal interview which she was visibly upset and had an emotional evening. All though she came back with a silver medal all her family were proud of her achievements.
