High dives giraffes

The leading giraffe keeps walking up the ramp. It thought it saw something move. They keep moving to see the food pile for each giraffe. They eat the leaves without noticing that they are being sent back to the start by a very quiet escalator. They continue walking until they go to the right which leads up and outside of the testing facility releasing them into the wild.

 Alma was breathing heavily as she looked around in panic and confusion seeing where she was. Her breathing starts to regulate as she calms herself.

Alma looked down to see that she was on a shelf and not standing on the couch where she was, trying to get the doll. She tries to move her legs and arms but they are stiff making her movement limited. Panic is starting to build up again when she hears a bell door ringing. Looking up she sees a little girl that looks her age but with red hair. She is walking in looking around the shop at a doll that looks like her on the table. The girl has red hair, purple mittens and a red scarf. She walks to the table trying to pick up the mirror imaged doll but gets distracted. Alma sees the doll disappear, like in a hot fire it burns like a piece of paper, then in a blink of an eye there is only ash.

As the girl looked up to see it disappear into thin air she looked around trying to find the mirror doll for a minute then looked on the shelf to see it  standing there. The girl walked to the shelf, climbing on to the couch to be closer. 

Alma knew that the girl didn’t know it was a trap. She tries to get her attention so she won’t suffer the same fate. It is too late, the girl touches the doll.

Overcoming fears

Aroha doesn't know who to ask for help but she has to overcome her fears. She breaths in then out slowly if she is sad. She begins to feel better. 

                                  Overcoming fears

Aroha was playing in a forest near the ocean. Navigating around the trees feeling energised swinging a small tree branch she picked up on the way to the spot, she walks to a broken, old log and stared into the clear sky.

 As Aroha gaze up the clear sky she started getting anxious and heard a voice saying she is not good then Arohas face changed from happy to sad,open to close and never spoke to anyone about her problems

Maybe this is what she needs to do to overcome those fears

Mop head

 This is piece of writing for drama on Mophead by Selina Tusitala Marsh


Dear Diary,

Today after school I was at a restorative justice meeting with my family and saw the school clerk, one of the school bullies and his family. We talked about why he did it and what actions should be taken. Also, to promise not to do it again. If he does it again he will get a warning. We agreed, all of the families, that he should apologise. "It's ok, just don't do it again," I said. The clerk nodded and we parted ways and left Mr Crystals office.
