Attitude Talk

Today team 5 were introduced by an awesome person called Jannah. Surprisingly her name
stands for Gracious Gift, I am super excited to tell you what she talked about because I
guarantee this information will help you throughout the future.

Today our topic was about friendships and how you can keep and give. Many tips Jannah
gave us was incredible as it was based on friends and how boys and girls deal with their sort
of relationships towards each other. The main things Jannah talked about were tips on
things you should do or say when you have close friends, one of my favourites she had
introduced/talked about was to be yourself. During the time we are with our friends most
people seem to not be themselves, so one thing I loved about her mini korero was to always be
yourself and to do what you entirely love.

Jannah did loads of funny/hilarious jokes as well as giving herself and everyone breaks due to
the amount of talking she had been doing. It was really important for us to know and remember
what she was talking about because we never know if friends will ever turn on us or stick
together as one, I really like how she made each of her points really clear and gave us a
main statement for us to know and of course herself and the teachers to know about. Friends
are people we should be able to trust, talk to and of course play with. I think from one of
her point of views I'd also say to always include others who are left out because it'll just be
sad and to let them see how much fun we are having compared to themselves. So I think
Jannah and Attitude really helped us and hopefully this short reflection helped you as well,
especially to those who didn't come.

Jannah was a super fantastic women to talk to especially about this main topic. I’ve really
enjoyed it, it was super interesting having her in our block just hoping that in the later future
she comes back to visit once again. I would like to thank Jannah for coming and hope to see
you again soon.

Thank you to Jannah and Attitude.

Polyfest Trip

Polyfest is what new zealand would call, the largest schools cultural event. Polyfest has
almost 10,000 performers every year, in Auckland polyfest is held in Manukau which runs
for 3 - 4 days. Polyfest is an incredible event to be attending as you’ll be watching all the
performers perform and of course you’ll be trying some of the best smoothies, snacks etc.

One of my favourite Stages was the Niuean stage,
I loved the Niuean stage because there were loads of activities, dance competitions and
more. The main stage was incredible but I was hoping there would be more action happening.
Although this was one of my favourite stages I would most like to say that the food was
awesome as well, the Watermelon Ice cream was fantastic surprisingly it took me quite a
while to finish it but I’m glad I did. I am hoping to go back for another visit and to see more
cultural performers perform.

One of my favourite Performers,
Unfortunately there were only a few cultural performers there, it was probably because our
school went on the speech day. A speech day is when different sort of groups talk for quite a
few and explain a little speech. Overall one of my favourite performance was the Maori
performance. 3 reasons is because it was the only stage we actually saw perform, 2 there
were so much support and aroha coming from each of these waiata, thirdly the school did
an awesome haka to give back to what there kapa haka group had performed. The school
that we saw perform was Otahuhu college and they were amazing.
