Last week on Friday the Kauri and Kakano teams went to Jelly Park, the Kauri team went because we had swimming sports for the whole day and the Kakano team went because they had a fun day outside Jelly Park while we had swimming sports.
Once we had finished the width races the house captains ran two simming activities for the Kauri team to participate in. The two games we ran were Madness and The Big Splash. For Maddness we just threw objects into the pool. The house that won this was Miro. After this we ran The Big Splash for this we participated with our house and Kowhai came first.
After we had finished this we ran the length races I came first in backstroke and second in freestyle. I had fun running the house activities and can't wait until the next time I get to run some more.

Over the past few weeks we have been learning about leadership. As a class we came up with 6 traits of an effective leader. My solo level is Multi Sturctual because I can understand what the meanings of the 6 traits are. These are the 6 traits:
Motivational - My understanding of Motivational is that you push someone to work towards their goal.
Goal focused - My understanding of Goal focused is that you keep heading towards your goal even if you do have to sacrifice something to get there.
Active thinker - My understanding of Active thinking is that you keep coming up with different strategies to achieve your goal.
Resilient - My understanding of Resilience is that you keep trying even if you do find it difficult at first you keep trying.
Trustworthy - My understanding of Trustworthy is that you earn somebody's trust before you start to work with them.
Integrity - My understanding of integrity is that you're honest and make sure you do the right thing.
As a class we also came up with a sentence about leadership - Leadership is a skill of being able to motivate a team/person to work towards a goal. My next step is to put these traits into action and prove that I can show them around the school.
