Noah's 2nd Niuean Language Week about Wind Instuments

After the incredible Niuean performance Mr Jacobsen (Assistant Principal) came on the stage and brought out a few instruments with him, he said that there were lots of wind instruments, and that you had to blow it like a rasberry. The instruments he had were a Conch Shell, Shofar, Bugle, Trumpet and a Cone.

He first grabbed the Conch Shell and said "Instead of shouting to a nearby Island they would use a Conch shell. Next he used a Shofar, it was a antler that was carved into a horn and it makes quit a good sound. After that he introduced the Bugle, the Bugle was used in the war Especially WW1. One of the prefects then ran up on stage and put a cone next to the trumpet. Mr Jacobsen put the Bugle back skipped the cone and started to explain the trumpet.  he then tryed to play the cone but it did not make a noise.

Noah's Laser Tag Experience

Hello Readers, how is it going? Are you having fun in the school holidays, well I will be writing          to you about my experience about LASER TAG! Laser tag is a game played with friends and family; you have suits and guns, the guns shoot laser beams out from the front of the gun and the vests that you wear have sensitive targets on the front and back of your vest, and also shoulder targets aswell (You will see the gun and vest on the top right hand corner)

You would have probably guessed by now that I went to laser tag with my Family, and that it was awesome and had so much fun. So back to the story, As my mother drove out of the Pakuranga Plaza carpark, I was so excited that I didn’t stop talking the whole ride to our destination. We finally got there, told the lady at the desk that we were going to be playing Laser tag/Laser strike for an hour, after that we were told to follow an instructor where he told us to wait and watch the screen telling us boundaries things that we are allowed and not allowed to do.

Then the doors opened and we were told to put on vests it didn’t matter which colour you had it would change unless you asked for it to be changed, the man played this voice recording of this lady saying “Game will Start...NOW!” As soon as I heard that message the music started playing and I ran to a corner to sneak attack someone.(By the way we had four rounds but I’m going to skip 3 of them) the game went on as we shot each other, points got higher, people came and left and the place got so hot and Smelly (Like B.O Smelly) on the very last game this new family came in and had lots of kids that would stay in one big group, so it was a easy target. So there you have it hopefully you can go to Laser Tag because trust me with heaps of friends and family it is Magnificent!
