What is Conscience

Conscience is the sense/feeling you get when you know something is right or wrong.
Conscience is the part of me that enables me to judge whether something is right or wrong.

Maths reflection Term 4

During maths this week I've learnt how to simplify a fraction for e.g if you had to share 5 pizzas to 6 people equally. First you have to cut the pizza to the number of people which is 6. Each person has to get 1 piece from each pizza which is ⅙. But you have to have ⅙ from the five pizzas. So you basically have to add the 1/6 5 times.

The G.I Parade

There was shouting and laughing everywhere. The whole of Glen Inness were waiting for the parade to begin. Me my mum, dad and my sisters were all waiting.

Yes the parade was starting. Me and my dad were waiting right in front so we could take really good pictures.

Everyone was shouting and cheering it was crazy. The more closer the parade got to us the more louder the people cheered.

First we saw the St Pius Samoan community, the only colours we could see was red and blue as the Samoan communities passed us.

Then we saw these Chinese dancing dragons they were awesome and colourful.

Other countries started pouring in like Tonga, Fiji also India and all sorts.

The parade was over and people started leaving. In no time Glen Inness was back to normal.

My favorite part was when I saw the dancing dragons from china.

John Coakley's last mass

On a windy Tuesday morning Room 7 of Saint Pius X School attended the funeral of Mr John Coakley. He is the father of our principal Mr Coakley. The funeral was at St Michael Church in Remuera.

In the church, we waited quietly for the mass to begin. I was getting very impatient. I started to chat to the person next to me.

Finally the the mass began. We stood up for the opening hymn. I saw our parish priest Father Iosefa walked pass us. I didn’t expect to see him but it was great for him to come.

Mr Coakley went up to share the urology of his father. He looked very sad. I felt sorry for him. Everyone surely felt the pain that he felt when he finished his speech.

Yes, it was communion time. It is our turn to sing the communion hymn. I felt nervous. I am sure I was not the only one feeling nervous. The guitar strum and we sang. I noticed the whole church was watching us. I tried not to look at them. I kept on singing. At last we finished. I saw heaps of people smiling including the teachers that came with us. I hoped we helped comfort Mr Coakely and his family.

The final hymn was sung with the coffin of Mr John Coakley was carried down the aisle. I still felt the sadness when I walked out of the church.
