  1. Kia Ora Paihia School
    Congratulations on your successful cross country. It really looks like you guys enjoyed the day! By the look on your faces I can tell you guys gave it your best. Winning isn’t everything.

    I have a question about your video though. Are any of the kids in your video of different age groups? Maybe something for next time would be to say that this is a video with children of all ages. This will make it clearer to your viewers and lets them know this isn’t the students of your class.

    Something in our class that we have been learning is about how to do speeches and how to present these speeches. I still haven’t spoken mine but am first on Monday to do it. My speech is about inspiring people and how my uncle who passed away about 2 weeks ago has inspired me. It would also be great if you could check out my blog. This is the link.


  2. Dear Paihia School,

    Cool video! I really like how there were sentences on the bottom of the video telling you all about what cross-country is about! It is definitely not about winning! I also like how you said, “We were all champions of the day!” That is really encouraging to make you get out there and do it!

    Next time though it would be cool if you showed some of the kids celebrating! I know for a fact that most kids would love a reason to celebrate!

    I hope you guys had a really fun day! Here is the link to our blog if you want to check it out!

    Bye now Tara!

  3. Hello Pahia School

    I would like to say that your animoto was really good. The message in there was good too. The way you set it out looked like it was really special to your school. I hope all the school students really liked doing cross country all day.

    I remember our schools cross country and I really enjoyed it. It was such an energetic atmosphere to be around. I was happy to get to the end of the race because I was so tired. I hope that the students had a good time and felt proud of themselves.

    I bet all the helpers at the cross country were really happy to run the event. The way you told the world about your cross country was really good. So many people need to present in a different way and I'm glad that you did. I hope all the students had a good time.
