On Thursday once the 12:50 bell rang I went straight to the library because I had senior librarian duty. I was alone again because Madyx and Jonathan had something else on. When I got there I asked Mrs Ward to print out the overdue lists. We don't print out all the classes now because Mrs Ward emails the Kauri team because they should be checking there emails every day. When Mrs Ward went to grab the overdue lists I went to get a pair of scissors, a stapler and the folder. Once she got back I got straight to work. It only took me about 15 minutes. Once I finished I put the stuff back and went and enjoyed my lunchtime. I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to do my library police duty.
At 12:10pm I had to leave class because I had student council at 12:15pm. This week we had Mrs Hall who came to the meeting. First we did the roll to see what classes were and were not there. After that we sent 2 runners to get the classes that were not there. Once everyone got there we started talking about what the theme is for the mufti day that is coming up. We had lots of options to choose from but we had a vote and sports won. So the mufti day has a theme and it is sports. That is what we talked about for all the meeting. I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to attend the meeting.
On Tuesday I had to get to school at 8:20 because we had technology at Lincoln and the bus left at 8:30am. When we got there I went straight to class. This week we started a new class, I am in cooking now. This week we made a hangi. Some weeks we make 2 things but other weeks we make 1 thing. First we had Mandarin and then we went over safety and the rules for cooking. Next we made groups of four and chose where to sit. After that each group got a vegetable and we had to cut it up into 4 pieces. Then we put them all on a desk and we got a plate and got 1 of each vegetable and a chicken nibble. After that we wrapped them in tinfoil and put them into the oven for 45 minutes. After that we ate them, they were good. I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to catch the bus.

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.
Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:
- John Key has been kicked out of parliament.
- John Key sits in the fourth seat on the right.
- The Sargent in arms brings the maize into every parliament session
Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.

On Thursday at lunch time I had Library Police duty. Once the 12:50 bell rang I went straight to the library. This week I had Jonathan to help me out. We do not have to do as much work now because Mrs Ward emails the Kauri team when they have an overdue book. There was not much room in the library so we had to sit out the back. There was only about 5 classes with overdue books so it only took about 10 minutes. First we got Mrs Ward to print the overdue list. Then I got a stapler and a pair of scissors, Jonathan got the folder and the overdue lists. All we have to do is staple cards onto the lists. I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to do my library police duty.
On Tuesday I had to be at school at 8:25am because the bus leaves for technology at Lincoln at 8:30am . Once we got there I went straight to class. I am in science and we were doing robotics. First the teacher told us how to use them. Next we buddied up with someone and chose what robot we were going to make. I don't know what robot we made but it was a very hard one to make. We had a 45 minute session then we went to mandarin where we learnt about family's. After mandarin we had morning tea. After morning tea we had another block building robots. Half way through the block some people started finishing there robots. After you have finished you have to program them on the computer. We did not get to program our robot because we finished with 10 minutes to go and it would not program. I showed leadership by helping my partner with building our robot.
