Akira's Visit

Last week the Nelson Giants basketball player Akira Marsters came to school to talk to Room 14 and 15 about how education is important and to never give up. He said to us that education is important, it's not all about muscles it's also about brains and that's why it's important to have a good education. He also said no matter what people say like "you won't make it" and "you can't become a great basketball player" you never give up, just keep practising and you could become great at what you do. The other thing he told us was not to be cocky because people won't like you and you also do worse when you're cocky. At morning tea we played shoot-a-hoop with Akira, it was 10 cents a shot to help fund raise so he can to USA to play basketball in 2014. At lunch we played a team match against Akira for fun. The other thing for fund raising was a sausage sizzle and a drink for $2.00.

  2. Cool! What did he talk about? Sadly I was not here when Akira came to visit our school.


  3. "It is so important to learn the etiquette of the internet and how to be safe in the cyber-world. You are learning life-

    long, valuable lessons from Mrs. Yollis. I am a pediatrician and I always talk to my older patients about internet safety.

    I tell them that the internet is much like the real world in that you should never talk to strangers. I remind my patients

    not to post what they look like, where they live or where they go to school. I am so glad that you and your friends are
