Guilt Station -By Asinte

As the boat is moving side to side  my head hits a box and luggage. People are talking, snoring, walking and sleeping.
Babies are crying. People are shaking full of hunger. Dead rats and cockroaches crawling. As kids hit their head on the hard wooden ground.The kids cry so they can go home, as parents saying to the kids "it is for your own good." People sitting  in dark corners that smell like B.O.

The Mask

My Memory -Asiate

Tall, long green grass. Big and small rocks...take me back to my memory.

Grandpa telling me to go and look at the giant palm tree. Me saying to my grandpa, “why the tree built like that?” Gigantic trees, enormous big rocks. I felt a mosquito bite and blood dripping from my feet. Birds tweeting into my ear. Long branches in my way, trees that look like Christmas trees. My sister and I collecting rocks big and small. Mud on my shoes.All takes me back.

                                         Euphrasie Barbie
Adèle Euphrasie Barbier was born in Normandy, France, on the 4th of January 1829, the child of Louis-Désiré Barbier, a shoemaker, and his wife, Jeanne Adèle Le Cler.
Euphrasie founded the Mission Sisters Christmas Day in 1861. They arrived in NZ 1864 and set up schools to help educate all people especially woman and children who were marginalised. 
Euphrasie Barbier was confident, brave, inspiring and generous.
I can be like Euphrasie Barbier by inspiring my friends an dpeole around me to do the right thing.

My First week back at school-By Asnate

             My First week back at school

My first week at school was good. At first when I came to school I wanted to go back home and sleep.When my principal called out my name I was to go to room 8 and my teacher was Ms. George.
She is a nice teacher. First we learned about the Coronations and did some art on our hands. We did some maths too. Also, I was very happy to see my friends. It was fun and cool. My first week at school in room 8 was OK.
