Car Wash

It was a divine sunny morning on Saturday as we had to attend the Car Wash Fundraiser at school at 7:30 am to get ready and starts at 9:00 am and finishes at 1:00 pm. We were fundraising for our Year 7 and 8 History Camp at Waitangi a lot of cars came today to Glenbrae School. A lot of Teachers and teacher aide came to help join in with the cooking and with the sausage sizzles. We were split up into teams when a car entered the school four people had to go and wash that car the reason why it was four people because one was washing the front of the car and one at the back and the two others at the sides of the car.

While we waited for the other cars to come we were offered free sausage sizzles by the Teacher aide from the BBQ we had to eat in a hurry because the cars started to come in ready for a wash when they parked their car we were well equipped with bucket filled with soapy water and a sponge. We cleaned and cleaned customers who came in to get their car washed would be accompanied with delicious and nice cakes or cupcakes or some BBQ (Sausage Sizzles and Chopsui and Potato salad).

Each customers were very happy and delighted with their cleaned cars as they left School then we had a rest while the other groups of people go and wash the other cars. While we waited we started playing then a lot of cars suddenly came in and we were they as fast as we could to wash them and clean them. At the end of the day we raised $910.60 dollars and we cleaned up and pack all the stuffs away and went home tired.Image result for carwashImage result for carwash

Kiwi Can Diary Writing.

Date: 03.09.2015

Today at Kiwi Can we talked about our Theme (Resilience) and our Topic (Dealing with challenges) we talked about how to deal with challenges that comes your way. Then we played a game called circle hands it was a challenging and easy game for me cause I stayed focused on the hands that was tapping but also challenging for the others. Then we finished our Energizer and carried on to the two activities that our teacher Mac had for us our first activities was called ‘Do it’ we each had to follow our teacher’s commands in this game it was pretty much about Active Listening and we moved onto the last activities. On this activities we were in five groups the game was called ‘Distraction’ and one person was in the middle and the other fours were on the sides each person was to do something to distract the person in the middle then we’d be routed around then we’d finished at the end with the total points it was an intense moment for us because our goal was to get to 25 when he announced it we were glad and filled with joy.
