The stars in the sky are shining, brightly and beautifully. “Shhh, please can you be quiet? I am trying to sleep.” “Ohh please Branchy can I just sing one more song??” “Uhhhh... nope!!” “Fine then” 4 seconds later, BOOM! Lalalalala, When I was singing my friends from the forest started singing along, they are the reason why & how the forest got its name. Then out of nowhere my friend Stewart (he is hilarious) went on Branch and he looked then my brother furiously flicked it off. I wasn’t surprised at all because he was mostly grumpy! I was singing my heart out just to change his mind. I tried everything to convince him but he kept on his furious face, when I finished I thought I saw a smile but it wasn’t I just noticed it was an evil smirk.
When I finished singing with my friends, I went directly with my ukulele and finished off with a riff I made up. Guess what he wanted to play my ukulele, so I handed it to him with happiness and said, “Go on, play it” so he grabbed it and said, “Thank you very much, I want to do something” I was over filled with joy,happiness ohhh my, there are so much to describe I was so happy I finally changed his, huuhh, he suddenly chucked my ukulele into the fire and I stood there watching my precious ukulele burn to death, then he finally said, “So I can do that!, now go sleep!” My mouth dropped so low it felt like a stone was in my mouth, while my brother was having good night sleep I was sitting there having a memorial for my precious ukulele.

My experience at retreat was amazingly awesome, I really loved my time there because I had a chance to get closer to others who I weren’t really close to. I really enjoyed the activities that Brother Philip had prepared for us that evening, also I really enjoyed my time there because I had laughing moments, sad moments, angry moments and silly moments too.
My most favorite part of the retreat was the treasure hunt, it was fun and a little bit soaky. It was funny because we had to hold on a brown long paper, and if we let go then we were disqualified from the treasure hunt. It was funny because we kept on ripping the brown paper, but when it started to rain we were saved because Brother Philip thought that the rain was the reason why our brown paper broke but really? :) the most annoyingest part of the treasure hunt was when my group & I had to run all the way to the mailbox which was all the way in the front where the entrance was, and it was kind of creepy cause we never knew if someone was driving up but we kept on looking back in case.
My group was Sini,Paul & Rosrine, we were the first group to finish our treasure hunt. I was excited cause we had to do a skit for the class and Brother and also Mr Coakley and Mrs Tui to see.
Anyways the reason why we went to the retreat at St Francis is because it was our time to show our leadership and learn how to be a great role model for others.
Well that was my experience hoped you enjoyed and read more next time or stay in tune for my next post!!!
My experience at Te Oro was amazing. I really liked meeting and greeting others to me or my classmates. I also really enjoy having little talks with the special people that attended the art gallery & much more. I really want to thank the people for making us feel
What I liked about this part was when we walked through the door of Mercy. I enjoyed my time their because I learnt a lot about other priests and other Saints as well. Also I really enjoyed learning about the door of Mercy and how it becomes from an original door to an Door of Mercy! That was fun!
