The Sky City Fire-By Storm

On the 22nd of october 2019 there was a fire that  hit the Auckland Sky City Convention Centre. 

Large flames were coming out of the building just after 1pm. The fire started in the roof cavity and it was difficult for firefighter’s to get inside the building and to the top. More than 200 people made it out in time before the flames really took off. The fire services are still there now watching the building.

Ruapotaka on 3...1, 2, 3 RUAPOTAKA! - By Leanah

Yesterday Tristan, Leaaepeni, Konzay, Nataaliyah, Mary-Ruth, Kate, Agueer, Madisyn, Kotipi and I went to the inter-school netball tournament at the Auckland Netball Centre in St. Johns. Our first game wasn't until 10:20 because we had a BYE. We played 6 games in total, lost 3 games, won 2 and drew 1.
 We placed 13th out of 20. We played against St. Pius, Pt. England, Glen Innes and Sylvia Park in our pool. The Sylvia Park team won it overall. We then played Glenbrae in the Semi Final and Panmure Bridge in the Final. I enjoyed playing beside my teammates and I am proud of how well we did.

Kayaking At Vector Wero Whitewater Park-By Ana

On Friday Room 8 went on a trip to Vector Wero Whitewater Park, we got the chance to kayak with professionals and wear swimsuits. Once we all had the special gear on we had to get in a line from the shortest to tallest. The reason for that was because the instructors needed to give us the right kayak that our legs and our body could fit in. After that we got to go in the water. 
A Lot of people were struggling in the beginning but they got the hang of it. We had to follow the instructors all the way to the bridge. We learnt heaps from today and it was super cool.

Plastic Bag Ban-By Riiana

During the weekend I went to Sylvia Park and almost immediately, I noticed that most stores stopped selling plastics bags. I had thought it was only supermarkets so once I got back home I searched up the cause of this.

I read from here that stores are now banned from selling plastic bags. Any store caught could potentially be faced with a fine, or the ministry will contact the business and try to figure out why they haven't stopped giving out plastic bags.

It's wonderful that there's now a law against plastic bags. Around 28% plastic waste have been discarded, leaving 72% to end up in the ocean or stray somewhere in our environment. Even if it's only a little bit, we're reducing plastic waste.
