Parents sometimes wonder why their children don’t want to go to school anymore, especially if the change is sudden and their child had been okay before. A reason could be because of bullying. Bullying can leave a child both emotionally & physically scarred, it can lead to a lifelong lack of confidence. Recently at school our teacher showed us a movie of a girl who was trying to stop bullying and to do this she asked for a meeting with John Key. The movie showed a fight between two girls, it was a really nasty fight and you saw one girl throw the other to the ground and start kicking her in the ribs really hard, she then took the girls hair and smashed her head on the concrete floor at least 5 or 6 times. It was a really nasty attack which knocked out the other girl but this didn’t stop the bully who started to kick her again. I couldn’t watch any more so I looked away and as I looked at the faces of my classmates I could see that they were as shocked as me. 

The message that I want everyone to know is that if you see bullying is wrong and you can’t just walk away from it. It is everyones responsibility to try stop bullying.


It was a dutiful sunny day, and it was my turn to choose where we were going to go. But my brother didn’t want me to choose. He wanted to go to the pools. But his try’s to persuade my parents were effortless. We arrived at the beach I ran across the sand dunes. While I tried to keep my feet of the sand as much as I could, because the sand was like little balls of fire, burning the skin of your foot until it reaches your bone. And the waves had a never ending pattern of eating each other; there would be a small wave, which would be eaten by a medium size wave witch would be eaten by a large wave. By now I was sprinting towards the water. As I neared I noticed little blue bubbles all across the shore line. My parent shouted at me to get away from the water. I dug my feet into the ground to stop and I turned around.  My parents explained the bubbles were bluebottle jellyfish. The day ended by my obnoxious little brother getting his way and we went to the pools.
