Elections

I believe that Labour will run our government because, Jacinda Ardern promises she'll make new houses and rebuild old houses. There has been news about Jacinda raising taxes but, that was just apart of the fight between National and Labour. Jacinda has a positive attitude and thinking.

Maui And... A Crane?

Maui And... A Crane?
Image result for Sun

We've all heard about Maui and the Sun right? But what if we put Maui in 2017. What would he do in a modern time? Let's continue then shall we.

Early in the morning we meet Maui. Maui works for an establishment an hour away from his house. He lives with his 5 brothers, he is the eldest. One day, out on the job Maui felt extremely hot. He felt like the day was never ending. As he went on with his job he felt a little vibration, coming from him pants. It was his phone.
"Hey bro, What's up?" I questioned him
"BRO, HELP ME OUT! I THINK THE SUN HAS STOPPED!" He yelled at the top of his lungs.
I thought he was joking but I couldn't tell.
"What do you mean The sun has stopped?" I questioned him again.
"I mean the sun has stopped, look the sun has stayed in the same place for 2 hours now!" He exclaimed.
I looked up to see where the sun was. The sun was I the same spot from earlier.
"Hey, meet me at my house. I have a plan, bring the other 4 too."
"Okay, you better have a good explanation."
(Beep Beep)
As my brother hung up I was zooming to my car.

I dashed threw traffic and made it in time to meet my brothers. Finally, I've arrived. All my brothers were there in front of their trucks.
"Okay, so what's the plan?" My youngest brother asked.
"Good, okay here's the plan. We all drive down to my work. We'll hire a crane, hook me up to it and I'll wear some sun protective glasses. When I'm high enough I'll wake up the sun." I explained.
"Sounds like a plan" My second older brother said while agreeing with me.
We were off, we rushed threw traffic once again.

Finally we've arrived at my work. I quickly dashed into the front office and hired a crane. My brother handed me the sun protective glasses and jumped back into his truck and waited for a signal.
"Meet me in Town Square!" I shouted out.
They all nodded. I was driving the crane down street, feeling a hole lot of eye's watching me. I arrived at Town Square with this massive crane and 5 trucks behind me. I buckled up my safety belt and attached it to the hook on the crane. One of my brothers thought ahead and brought a bucket filled with water.

I held the bucket in one hand and held on to the big chains on the crane.
"Let me fly" I said referring to 'Let me up in the air'.
My heart was beating... I was so nervous, what would happen if this didn't work? My brother raised me up into the air high enough to spill the icy water on the sun. Man, it was hot up there, I could barely breathe! I spilled the freezing cold water on the sun, I was waiting to see what would happen... The suspense was unreal. My brother lowered me down while I was shaking my head in a disappointing matter. Did my plan work? Did my plan fail? Once my feet were able to touch the ground I did not say a word. Silence. We were all completely silent... Then, all of a sudden one of my brothers call out,
"LOOK! THE SUN!"
We all raised our heads... My mouth dropped.
"It worked! It actually worked!" I shouted loud and proud.
The sun had moved from its original spot! We all cheered and celebrated.
"Who knew my plan would work! Well, thanks to you all it did!" I exclaimed cheerfully.

(Later that day)
So, we returned the crane, once again I drove down the street with the crane and a few eyes'. After that I drove home in my normal car to find all 5 of my brothers waiting for me.
"What's up?" I asked.
"Now the moment of truth... Will the moon raise." A brother stated.
We all looked up waiting to see the moon. A few minutes pasted and then... The moon bright as can be was found.
"Aright then, let's go inside. We're having a feast tonight to congratulate Maui" Said one brother.
We all went inside and ate a bunch. Then everyone went home and lived their lives.

The End

Te Tiriti o Waitangi

One People

(A paragraph from the text)
The next day, 6 February, the chiefs met again. Hobson wasn't expecting a hui (company) that day and was wearing casual clothes. He had to quickly put on his naval hat in order to look more official. The Treaty was read aloud, and then around forty chiefs signed it. As they did this, Hobson said, "He iwi tahi Tatou." ("We are one people.")
A number of copies of the Treaty were made and taken around the country. Not all iwi got to see the Treaty, and some chiefs decided against signing. Others were fearful about the Treaty would mean but signed anyway. Over the next seven months, over five hundred chiefs signed their names or moko - almost all of them on the te reo Maori version.



This was a very educational. There was a lot of information in the text that I did not know. I would recommend this article to the young youth who don't know much about New Zealand history.
