Our Amazing Trip To PolyFest

On Thursday the 16th of March our year seven and eight students went on a trip to Poly fest. We had organised three busses to take us to Poly fest. It took about half an hour to get there and once we had arrived we walked to the centre and sat down. Not long after we had sat down and another school had sat down.Once all the schools had arrived each class had one tour guide. Our tour guide was showing us some of the place the would give us some learning time.I could remember two of the places which were the Police area and the ASB truck.
One of the highlights that I enjoyed from poly fest was going to watch the Maori stage. The Maori stage was breathtaking because of the way they showed they wanted to be there. They sang their loudest and that was what I liked the most about the Maori stage.

Another highlight from poly fest was watching the cook island speeches. The Cook Island Speeches were outstanding even though I didn’t understand what they were saying. I liked that they tried there best to try and say it proudly.

My last highlight of poly fest was the diversity stage. They were astonishing with the way the worked as a team and had fun while doing it.They looked like they were enjoying their dance because I could see that they were laughing.

After we had seen the stages and looked at the stalls it was time to go. We were ready to go so we walked to the bus at head back to school. When we had got back to school we walked inside and it was 2.30pm. Mrs Tele’a was telling us about how great we were at being responsible. We sang a song to the helpers for helping us at poly fest. After that we all went home and had a big rest.
