To the Manaikalani Trust

This year I would like to thank the Manaiakalani team for letting our school use these precious netbooks. I would also like to thank you for all your hard work.

Tuesday, December 6, 2011


Having a netbook is like a treasure to you because it’s yours and it’s yours to keep. I like having a netbook because you can always get access through your work easily, and when you’re looking for an answer to your question you can always go on different websites to search it up.
Games, Games, Games, sometimes when we have finished our work we can go on netbook games ONLY! because it has already been set up on our netbooks and is free to play. It’s also easier to publish posts on your blog. You have your own internet connections, TLN MANAIAKALANI.

As much as I love having a netbook there can be some upsetting moments like, waiting for Internet connections to load, and not taking your netbook home. Drawing on the paint applications on your netbook isn’t the same as drawing with pencil and paper. The worst part of all is charging it overnight because you bring it out and then put it back in the cupboards( If you don’t take it home ).

An advantage is that you can go online at home and work an school things and that helps you get ahead in your learning.

Most of the time I’m sometimes in the right space and sometimes not so much. I’m cyber smart most of the time because I am aware of what site I am on.

It would be very devastating to have our precious netbooks taken away. The reason is because lots of people have worked hard to get us these learning tools and it would be a waste if they were taken off us because that is all the people’s hard work gone down the drain.

“Boing! Boing! Boing!” There were so many balls bouncing around. Room 20 were learning how to play tennis at the netball courts, it was quite hard I tell you. All the balls were bouncing everywhere.

“ Aaaaaahhh there’s flying balls trying to attack me!” I shouted as I hit the ball crooked. I was struggling hitting the ball up and down on the raquet. It was quite hard I tell you, playing tennis was not my kind of sport.

Our tutor began to blow the whistle, everyone knew what that meant, so everyone held their raquet and ball except for some people. He started teaching us how to hit the ball on the edge of the raquet it looked pretty hard, but then I thought that I could manage to do it. “ When I say start you can go and have a try “ he yelled. At first I was shaky but then I got used to it. Some people were hitting it crooked, some people were hitting it outside of the court but most of them could manage.
