Merit Evidence being a role model for the Kakano team 1

Being a role model for the Kakano team

At assembly I was a role model for the Kakano team by showing the CARE values.

Community- I showed this by keeping my hands and feet to myself

Active thinking- I put my hand up to answer the questions that were being asked

Respect- I faced the front and listened to the speaker

Excellence- I sung with pride in the National anthem

When we exited the hall I did it respectfully and quietly. (What I did and the values I showed).

Merit Evidence

Swimming Sports

On Friday the Kauri team had Swimming sports at Jelly Park. The Kakano team also went but they got to go in the outside pool and just play while the Kauri team competed in races and games for the houses.

When we arrived the house captains got taken to a line of seats in front of the pool. We got to sit there because so we could cheer on everyone competing. While I was sitting Mr Ladbrook came over and asked the house captains what one of us wanted to demonstrate the start for the width races. I put my hand up and I got chosen. I headed down there and demonstrated it.

Next it was time for the width races to start. All the house captains moved from their seats to the side of the pool so we could cheer on all the people racing. One little girl got scared so Sam W jumped in and gave her a piggy back so she could finish the race. After that we just cheered om everyone till the width races were finished.

After the width races it was time for the house challenges. My groups activity was Madness and we were up first. You play Madness by throwing lots of objects into the pool and time the houses to see who can do it the fastest.

Next the other group do their activity. Their activity was the Biggest Splash. You play this by getting 2 houses lined up (lengths way). Then you say go and everyone will hold onto the edge and go on their tummies and do the biggest splash they can by kicking.

After that we went outside to join the Kakano for lunch.

When we got back it was time for the length races. I was competing in these races so I had to get ready. When my race was called I went over and received my lane number. I did this twice for both of my races. I ended up coming first in both my events.

At the end of all the length races it was time for the class relays. We did it in year levels. In my year level my relay team came first. (What I did).

I showed Excellence  by trying my hardest.



W.A.L.T: Describe the traits of an effective leader
My solo level is Multistructual because I can describe the traits of an effective leader

Over the past new weeks we've been learning about how to be an effective leader. As a class we came up with 6 traits that we think an effective leader has to have. They are:

- Integrity: We read a book about Sir Edmund Hillary and I thought he showed integrity because he doesn't consider himself better than everyone else even though he was the first person to climb Mount Everest.

- Trustworthy: My understanding of trustworthy is someone who can be trusted to do something. I read a book about a girl called Nancy that was trusted to get radio codes in the second world war.

- Resilient: Resilience is when you never give up. I read a book where this guy went to a boot camp and he had to have resilience to get through it.

- Goal Focused: Being goal focused means you're determined to achieve you're goal. In the book about Sir Edmund Hillary he was goal focused because he didn't give up so he achieved his goal which was to get to the top of Mount Everest.

- Active thinker: Being an active thinker means you come up with new ideas which will help you reach your goal. In a book called Desert Kaupoi Tony showed active thinking by coming up with new ideas on how to stop the machine gun post

- Motivational: Being motivational is leading people towards a goal and making people want to achieve their goal.In Outward Bound Sam motivated himself to finish all the fitness activities.

My next step is to compare and contrast the traits of different leaders.
