Today we went to Tamaki College for technicraft. When we arrived we had to wait outside the buildings for the teachers so we could find out our classes, The year 8's went to Mr Grundy's workshop and the year 7's went to graphics with Mr Pineda.

 In Mr Grundy's class we discovered that we were doing stain glass. First, we watched a video on what we were doing and how to do it, Later we went back to our desk and we all got a piece of paper for a brainstorming it was then time to go so we went on the bus and went back to school.

On Tuesday the Year 7 & 8's had Orienteering. First we lined up and started heading to the park. We then were given our map courses and a clip card to make sure we already mark the places. While doing the activity I was confused and things were mixed up I was feeling stressed but later on I managed to finish all of the courses.
