Personal Profile

We have been learning about personal and private information online and how we present ourselves online. Personal information is information we can share safely on line. Private information we should never share without the permission of a parent, guardian, or teacher. If we are not sure we will keep it private. 

My name is Zheiyna and I am year 6 and I am a Samoan girl. I'm also very proud to be a Samoan. My interests at school are, writing, R.E and maths. But mostly I enjoy performing arts in and out of school. I enjoy watching movies like Karate Kid and Puss In Boots because I like the funny bits in them.  I like listening to Reggae music but my favourite singer is Jamie Mcdell. 
My favourite books to read are non-fiction because I like learning about the solar system and also about the world.

Women's Handball

Women's Handball


The women's handball is an Olympics game, played by a group of women from different parts of the world. They all come together to compete for this year's London 2012 competition. Each women’s Handball team plays with confidence, skill and speed.They pass the ball with strong and powerful throws to each of their teammates until it gets close enough for the of the athletes to throw it into the goal area, passing by the goalie from the other team. The opposing team try hard try hard to make sure the ball doesn’t go into the net. The women’s handball is an amazing Olympic sport. No knowing about the women’s handball, always gets me imagining being on the exact court representing the country I come from in an Honoured and grateful manner.
