Trading Homework For Hard Labour

Gaza Strip a city of the state of Palestine.
Palestine is bordered by Israel, jordan,
Lebanon and Syria. It is in the middle east   
Ahmed is 13 and doesn't go to school.
His dad is ill, Ahmed does back breaking work.
He has to pick up gravel and metal and sell it to
the market trying to just earn a few shekels.
He takes his rumble to market with his donkey.
They get help from charitable organization but it
isn't enough.

I felt bad for them that there is people in this
world that rich and wont donate.
We are way different than them,
we actually have water and jobs that make money.

Try set up a donation for medicine for their dad then that could go out get a job.
This could be done by setting a website up and
ads on tv. That would help people see it because
mostly everyone watches TV.

purerehua poem

As I swing my purerehua in 360 degree infinite loop
It feel likes I halve a helicopter motor in my arm
It goes in circle as fast as a raging river.

It sounds like a kereru flying in the forest.

Book review

In The Can By  Christopher Stitt

Illustrator Ian Forss

This genre is fiction and it is about relationships.

The story takes place in a primary school in Australia .  
We know this because at the front of the book Christopher
Stitt shouted out to the schools that helped him write it.

The main character are Calvin and Lewis. Lewis is the boy
who asks Kate to the dance. Kate is most popular girl in the
school. Calvin is Lewis’ friend. I think the characters ages are 12-13.

The boy, Lewis, goes and asks the beautiful girl in school to
the dance. He gets rejected and he runs away and hides in a
shed where the school puts all their old stuff. Lewis crawls
under all of the old desks. He was sitting feeling sad when
he heard something buzzing. Lewis pulled down the cover.

It was a vending machine, it had cold drinks in it. He
thought in his head, “I wonder if it still works?” He put in penny...
Cluck! Bang! the drink falls down and it was a cool cola. He
skulled back his drink then he looked in the reflection of the
vending machine.
“I think the drinks made me cool!”
He walks past the girl that he likes and the girl looks up at him.
She notices him…

People that are immature should not read this book
