Intro- We have been comparing similarities and differences between Omar’s life’ a girl that live in Malawi and our life here in New Zealand. We’re going to be looking at how hard Omars school life and home life is compared to ours.

Para 1- Omars school life is hard because, students have to be at school at 6.30 to sweep the dusty playground, half an hour before school starts. Students also have to share 1 book between 4-5 people. Not having enough money to buy books, pens or even pencils is hard for kids. 1.30 is the time they finish school, during that time they only have two 10min breaks. One at 8.40 and another at 10.40. Since they don’t have any where to hold their assembly they have it outside.

Para 2- Sadly Omars parents died, so she now lives with her grandparents. Her  grandpa is the chief of her village but they live in a poor home. Inside her room she has no bed because her Grandpa sleeps on it. She calls it her bedroom but she has no bed so its basically just a room. On the floor is where Omar sleeps. The toilet and the kitchen are in two separate blocks outside.

Para 3- Exams are really hard to pass, because students don’t have enough time to study. But when they do go home they're too busy helping out with the food and chores. Teachers sometimes have students at the age of 12-16 in their class, because they didn’t pass their exam. If students were unable to pass the exam then they stay in the same class.


We wear shoes to school but Omar doesn’t. She has to walk 6 kilometres to get to school whereas we just live down the road. In New Zealand its a must for us to go to school unlike kids in Malawi most of them stay home and learn to cook and do the chores. They also get their water out of a little well, however we get our water out of the tap. There is a lot of differences in Malawi.

There are some similarities such as we walk to school, we have assemblies, sing the national anthem and play sports. Omars school does the same as us. Another similar thing is that us and some schools in Malawi have desks and chairs. Books are provided but shared between 4-5 people in Malawi schools, unlike us we have netbooks and also get our own books.

its the kids responsibility to come to school early and clean the school. As for us we have don’t have to clean, instead we have a caretaker and cleaners. Mwaya school starts at 7.00 and finishes the day at 1.30, which is way different to Pt England School. Electricity, we have this but Mwaya School does not. They have no computers and they can’t even flick the switch to turn the light on, because there's no electricity.

For breakfast they grow Cassava and make it into a porridge. Here in New Zealand we have a variety of breakfast cereals to eat. Instead of living in a house with a kitchen and a toilet, they have them in two separate blocks outside. But after using the toilet they have no sink to wash their hands. These are all so different to how we live.

Auckland'er dragged behind a Humpback Whale

In fiji a Aucklander Has been dragged behind a humpback whale. The Person that got dragged by it was trying to untangle him from fishing gear that someone had dumped into the sea. The person who tried to let the whale free said that the knife he was using was a butter knife.This whale could not move its tail but as soon as it was cut free it had started to swim away.People have said that the fishing gear look like it was only under for a little while.There diving instructor knew that it would be a risk to jump in with a 12-m long mammal.So the whale is pretty lucky to be alive and that there is nice caring people out there.

My 1963 Story

Every day I have hoped that everything will change but it seems that it won’t ever happen. Being black in america is always hard because there always someone else who puts me down.

Right now I am marching to the Lincoln Memorial with my friends Monike. and Jazelle.We are holding signs and singing while we march in unison with hundreds and thousands of people. Our arms are getting tired from holding the signs for such a long time. We stop at the reflecting pool just as we hear Martin Luther King’s name get called out. A loud cheer comes from the crowd as he stands onto a platform.
I feel full of hope that maybe the law will change for the blacks. I look up and hear Martin Luther King shout out, “I Have a Dream that one day our nation will rise upon all racial people and have freedom as well as us (Black) people and (White) folks will treat each other equally”.

Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, August 28, 1963

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon of hope to millions of slaves, who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. But one hundred years later, the colored America is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the colored American is still sadly crippled by the manacle of segregation and the chains of discrimination.

One hundred years later, the colored American lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the colored American is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we have come to our Nation's Capital to cash a check. When the architects of our great republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.

This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed to the inalienable rights of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given its colored people a bad check, a check that has come back marked "insufficient funds."

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and security of justice.

We have also come to his hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is not time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.

Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy.

Now it the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.

Now it the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.

Now is the time to make justice a reality to all of God's children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the determination of its colored citizens. This sweltering summer of the colored people's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end but a beginning. Those who hope that the colored Americans needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual.

There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the colored citizen is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities.

We cannot be satisfied as long as the colored person's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one.

We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating "for white only."

We cannot be satisfied as long as a colored person in Mississippi cannot vote and a colored person in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote.

No, we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of your trials and tribulations. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by storms of persecutions and staggered by the winds of police brutality.

You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.

Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our modern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you, my friends, we have the difficulties of today and tomorrow.

I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.

I have a dream that one day out in the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; that one day right down in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be engulfed, every hill shall be exalted and every mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plains and the crooked places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith that I will go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.

With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.

With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to climb up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning "My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring!"

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

But not only that, let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi and every mountainside.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every tenement and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

I had went back to work and I keeped on looking up so I could see were everyone was going but nothing happen I was thinking that some people went somewhere for a test.So then I had went back to work wondering if every was disppearing or not .Then I looked up and everyone was gone..I dash out of my class room to look at all the other class rooms and they all disappeared to

.I was looking around my hole School for Everyone  then I was getting scared that something might of happen to everyone.Because everyone was gone the teachers were gone my friends were gone and everyone else but not me.Then I went back to class to see if anyone came back and they didn’t. I was yelled for everyone for ages I was thinking of going home But I didnt I just went to my class room and waited for everyone to come back.

Then I screamed then all of a sudden I was on my table screaming and everyone was back and I was thinking was I dreaming or was I awake.Then I had told my friends all about what happen and they called me crazy.

Show not Tell

With the sun bearing down on me I felt like melting like an ice cream on a cone in the sun, drip by drip. Throughout the day I was getting really tired from the heat. I felt completely exhausted and had sweat dripping on the right side of my face.
