1.What do you Enjoy in the weekend?

I enjoy going to Barry Curtis Park to go along the tracks and ride our bikes and after biking we climb the rope tower and race to the top and back down. And next to the tower there is a toddler play set, and a pair of swings.

2. What is your favourite place to go?

My favourite place to go is GameOn because the game has cars, dance, music and fishing games. There are also vending machines too. The candy floss machine gives you one free candy floss if you run out of money in your Gameon credit card. The games you won will earn tickets in your card so if you have tickets, there is a gift shop where you have to pay tickets instead of money.

This is Marcus when he was reading a book as one of his activities during the lockdown.

Mele gladly did her Gratitude Journal on paper and shared with Mrs Fonohema.  Thanks Mele and mum 'Ofa for trying your best to send me the works that Mele had completed.
