I really enjoyed Watching Lady of Fatima with the community! By Uinisieti

On Sunday afternoon, my family community and I went to Room 9 to watch a movie called Lady of Fatima.


When we were waiting for my mum to drop us off to  church, Lupe and I had to take a basket of clothes and some pegs to hang out the washing. And this was to be done at the back of our house. When we had finished our chores, we hopped into the car. It took us 15 minutes to get there


When we got there, my dad sister and I went to Room 9 because it is where we are  watching our movie. We prayed and  said the Divine Mercy before we watched the movie. The parish community prepared food for us and also food for everyone to share. Soon it was time for us to watch our movie.


The movie that we watched was about a little girl who saw Mary and when she told her family they did not believe her. Her mum even smacked her.


My friend Hope and I went back to the food table to get ourselves more food to share with our friends. We had chicken and chips, cookies, sandwiches, hot dogs and more.


While we were watching our movie, I went to the back of the room to look after my cousin's baby because we was running around and making too much noise.


Lastly Father Andrew told us we will be having a movie night every after two weeks and he told everyone to take some food home.


The part of the movie I liked best was when the little girl saw Mary and everything that Mary said to the little girl, she obeyed. I want to be like the little girl.

Have you seen the movie 'Our Lady of Fatima?' By Leolupe

Image result for our lady of fatimaWow! I never knew that the movie 'Our lady of Fatima' could be so interesting! On Sunday the 7th of May, my cousins Eti, Anastacia, Joyla, my uncle and I went to the St. Patrick's parish to watch a movie with the parish community.

Before we left, my aunt asked me to hang out the washing. I grabbed the basket with the wet clothes and a bag with the clothes pegs in. Then I went out and walked out to the backyard. When I was hanging out the washing, something came and rubbed its head against my leg, so I bent down and pushed it away.

After hanging out the clothes, we all grabbed our jackets and ran out the door with socks and shoes in our hands. We listened to the music on our way to the parish. When we arrived at the parish, we walked to Room 9 because that was where the movie was taking place. We waited for our friends Peter, Kylie, Asia, Emanuel, Frances, Peter, Shanice and Star to come so we could all go in together.

When we walked in, Father Andrew gave each of us a plastic plate so that we can walk to the food table to choose some food to eat. I got a hot dog on a stick, Macaroni and cheese and chips. After a while, Eti, my cousin Petra, my friend Hope and I walked to the front and we went to the left side and sat on the floor. We watched Our Lady of Fatima. The movie was very interesting because it was very different from the movies that I have seen before before.

Afterwards, I walked outside with Emma and her son Michael. After a little while, Father called us inside so we could all gather together to pray together. After the prayer, Father gave each family a plate of food to take home. We got a big plate of hot dogs, cocktail sausages, Biscuits and a cup of juice for each of us. We said our goodbyes to our lovely friends and drove back home. Eti and I ate a little bit of food and then we went straight to sleep because we were feeling really tired.

My favourite part of the day was when we watched 'Our Lady of Fatima' because it was very funny and interesting.

Learning Intention: We are learning to develop our vocabulary bank.
Success Criteria: I know I can do this when I use a thesaurus to find interesting and descriptive words to describe watching movies with the parish community.

Glenfield mall is cool! By Roneeza

Glenfield Mall!

On Sunday, the 30th of April, my family and I went to Glenfield Mall because there was no power at my house.


First, we dressed ourselves in some warm and cosy clothes and, then we had some breakfast We had some toast and eggs. Straight after that, we hopped in the car and drove to Glenfield Mall. It was a very long drive, so my sisters and I played games like Sandwich and I Spy.
Before we knew it, my dad parked the car and we went inside the lower case. We saw a lot of shops and a lot of people. It was crowded, most of the people were in the cafes so they could talk to their  friends or relatives.


Then Tyrah and I noticed a skating rink. We were very excited because we haven't skated for a while. We asked our parents if we could go, but my dad said we had to buy some socks for me because I wasn’t wearing any.


After that, my dad paid the man who was in charge of the skating rink, it was ten dollars for each of us .Then the man asked us the sizes of our shoe. My dad told him and he gave us a pair of skates that were the right size for us. He put my shoes aside while I was putting on my pair of skates.

It was fun skating around the rink. We were going up, down and around. I was getting dizzy so I stopped and took off my skates.


Later on, we sat at a table. We were starving so we ordered chips and burgers from McDonald's. It was a very long queue, so  we sat down and waited table. Then, me and my sister   It was very appetising. I was full from eating too much chips!


What I really liked about the mall is that there was a skating rink because most malls don’t have them. The part I liked about going to Glenfield Mall was when we ate at McDonald's. I loved eating the chips! I hope I can go there again soon.
