When You Thought I Wasn't Looking





When you thought I wasn’t looking

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you tuck me in at night
and I felt precious.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say goodbye to me when I left
and I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you get up early even though you were tired,
and I learnt that I should put others before myself.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you worry about my health
and I knew that there was always someone watching over me.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you give money to a less fortunate person,
and I knew that I should be kind to others.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you buy me new clothes instead of buying clothes for yourself,
and I learnt that sometimes you have to sacrifice some things for love.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you sneak fruit into my lunch,
and I knew you cared about my well-being.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you forgive me after we fought,
and I learnt how to forgive others too.

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I looked…
and I wanted to say thank you for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking!

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MUM!!!

Conquering Balance Island

Conquering Balance Island

“Maranita, you can go first!” Mrs. Kopua said as I stared straight at the two ropes that could possibly cause me to fall into the freezing lake.
I looked at my friend with longing eyes. “Unnie... how about you go first?” I asked her.
After a long time of trying to persuade her, I finally had the courage to try and complete the terrifying balance island myself. After I got on, my mind became dizzy and it felt as though a swarm of butterflies were flying all around inside my stomach. However, I started on my way.
As I looked down at my reflection in the lake, a very familiar voice screamed “GO NITA! YOU CAN DO IT!”
While I continued to try to avoid falling into the hands of the seaweed reaching out for me, Losaline continued to cheer very loudly, embarrassing me. Despite the yelling, somehow I managed to reach halfway. I looked at the end, mumbling to myself that it wasn’t far. I started on my way again, this time moving quickly. Time passed by and I finally reached the end!
I jumped off the rope victoriously and with a huge smile on my face.
“Good girl Maranita! Now walk over to the bridge and have a go on that one!” Mrs. Kopua yells.
My smile faded away as I made my way to the bridge.
‘Oh well! At least I completed the hardest one!’

My Family Community


In Rm 5 we have been learning all about communities and how to build communities. I have done a video to show one of my own communities, my family community. I created this video by using wevideo.

What's In My Head


In Rm 5 we have been working on an art project. My artwork has everything that is in my head and what I think about. It has food, family & friends, God & Jesus. It also includes some values that I try and show in my life and some words that have hurt me.

Kings, Judges and Prophets
