Extension Tossing food

Pt England

Thursday 25th August 2016

Dear Prime Minister John Key,

Malo e lelei my name is Samoa I am 10 years of age, and I attend a beautiful school named Pt England School. I am from a beautiful Island called the Kingdom of Tonga. I am a year 6 student and in room 6,7 and 8. I live in Auckland, and I have 3 amazing teacher whose names are Mr Somerville, Mrs Moala and Miss Lavakula.

The purpose of this letter is because I have a complaint to say, I think that people around the world and around Auckland should start thinking about not tossing plastic papers and plastic Bottle into the drain because it is not safe for the animals and it is not safe for the country to be living in. This is so our environment doesn’t get dirty. Otherwise we wouldn’t have stuff like, food, water and all sorts of plastic bags and plastic plates.

Well I was thinking that you may like to gather good people who understands the importance of the environment, to help our community become a better place. And also you may see that it will make the environment a happy place to live in. Well I hope that this letter will make you understand the importance of our pollution.

Your sincerely,
Kind Regards,
From Samoa,

Technology as a Performance Enhancing Drug

So here I will be writing about Performance-Enhancing Drugs. Technology can be considered cheating in the Rio Olympics 2016, because it is not fair on the Other Athletes. Why is Technology is very similar to Performance-Enhancing Drugs?
Well Technology is very similar to Performance-Enhancing drugs because way back in the days in the Olympics Athletes had never used technology, but then now Athletes do use technology to see what can make them faster and how to win the Gold, Silver and Bronze medal. So that gives them adventures to other athletes that do not use Technology to compete in the Rio Olympics for 2016. Technology and Performance-Enhancing drugs use to have it at the beginning of the Olympics. Well for an example athletes that are doing sprinting, well the kind of shoes they wear, they have spikes underneath to help athletes to run faster and it may help them to win the Gold, Silver and Bronze medal.
Furthermore why is technology allowed in the olympics but performance-enhancing drugs is not? Well the reason why I think technology should be banned is because it is  very very similar to performance-enhancing drugs. Technology helps athletes to become faster than what they actually are, but technology can also help athletes by beating the world records. So why isn’t performance-drugs allowed in the olympics when it’s similar to technology.
Moreover Technology can be seen as cheating because it’s is very similar performance-enhancing drugs but it is way different because performance enhancing - drugs can do something to your body, and it will not be good because that is the reason why they want performance-enhancing drugs in the Olympics. But technology only helps the outside of your body and how you can do your movement.
Walt: write an effective explanation about why technology can be considered a performance-enhancing drug

My Olympic

What is special about Olympics? Well Olympics is special to people because you can see how athletes do their own sports and also see how athletes show off their talent like sprinting and also like weightlifting they can show off their bulky muscles. And swimming is showing how fast you can swim.  And it is special because it is world’s largest sport organization for adult and also children's. And I also think that Olympics are special because Maybe some kids may follow their dreams to be a athletes. In every four years the Olympics are held.

In every four years the Olympic games are held. Each country competes against other countries. Every athlete trains every day, for an example justin gatlin uses four hyper speed cameras to see how he starts when he starts running, it help justin gatlin to get faster as he is running and the, and they use the hyper speed cameras to look at what kind of position he does as he starts to run. And volleyball they wake up 6:00 in the morning to practice and practice for their big day. And sometimes they practice till 3 or to 4 hours a day.

What is used for athletes to win? It can help Athletes by wearing the right uniform and wearing the right shoes that will make you comfortable to run in. For an example sprinting it could help Athletes by doing the right position as they start off for their run.  And by that it could help you by leading the rest of the athletes to the finish line. That is how Justin gatlin uses his hyper speed to see what could make him faster.

Some Athletes get rewarded for competing and winning a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal. And also showing their skills to the whole wide world, and people screaming and shouting because they are relieved that they came 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. And when they come Gold,Silver and bronze they always get their flag and hold it up to represent their country’s. And Usain bolt always does his special move.
