On Monday 21st of May, all of the leaders from Hokowhitu school went to something amazing, The National Young Leaders Day. It was so cool, the following people spoke to us, Kelly Wilson, Lisa Tamati, Jono Naylor, Riley Hathaway, Vince Harder, William Wairua. I liked when Vince Harder and Will Wairua sang Wowee. The speakers said a lot of inspirational things e.g face your fears, follow your dreams. By Will

The kids lit quiz!

One rainy morning at Hokowhitu school, the kids Lit quiz team Anisa, Tiria, Madeliene and I, charlotte were waiting out in the cold and wet.We were waiting for Mrs Gifford-Moore to come and take us to P.N.I.N.S. for the Lit Quiz. Finally she arrived in her pitch black Mercedes Benz, It was like something out of a fairy tale. "Come on you lot get in or we'll be late!", she yelled out. Once we were in the magical Mercedes, Anisa started singing pop goes the weasel. Suddenly the car came to a holt, "we are here" Mrs Gifford -Moore bellowed.We were finally here at P.N.I.N.S about to win this amazing competition. Wow, there's a lot of schools here. By Charlotte.

Last Thursday we had a man come over to do some science, he showed us a lot of interesting and cool things. My favourite experiments was the experiments with the dry ice, I liked the frozen marshmallows, yum! I also liked the balloon one, seeing them deflate them inflate again was so cool!

On the 22nd of May 2018 we did Science.
We had 5 cups. In each cup there was a substance labeled either A, B, C, D, E, or INDICATOR.
My buddies were Gemma and Sihui.
Before we added the INDICATOR we smelt them all. A smelt like L&P, B smelt like Vinegar, and all the others smelt like chemicals.
After we added the INDICATOR A, B, and D all turned a shade of Pink. The C and E turned a shade of Green.
We found out that C was Dishwashing Liquid. We still never knew what D and E were.
We talked and we think that the INDICATOR was Red cabbage.

E, D, C, B, A                        By Gracie .A
