The Top Information...

Though all birds are good at flying, the Pukeko is quite the clumsy pilot, when taking off. But once in the air, they're okay. Did you know, that when they're on land, they can run up to 200ks! These native birds are simply amazing. If you think about it, this creature,is kind of like an athletic bird. Pukekos, are born with very large feet, so they can swim through the fast flowing water.

Nerve Wracking Netball

It was a hot summer's day and I was sweating more than a man who just finished a marathon. We were trialling for Pt England's Year Six Netball team. Man it was hot! After I clicked a few bones, and almost had a heart attack, from running too fast, I got switched to the 'Center' position. It was quite hard. Everyone was crowding around me whenever I got the ball. That's why I was happier when I wasn't playing in the 'center' position. Playing netball last year, was really fun. One time, it started raining and my team, were the ONLY people who stayed outside and practised! Although it is tiring, it is quite fun. I hope that I make it in to the YEAR SIX netball team this year. I would also like to say GOOD LUCK to all the other people who trialed for the team.
