All about me!

Hi, my name is Ella and I love to read and write, although I love maths as well. I am in Dance Academy, I am starting Netball and Rowing in term 2, and I am currently practising for the New Zealand Spelling Bee. I like swimming and I have a Guinea Pig named Mr Cuddles! This year I would like to write about major school events and do some reviews/recommendations. I also love taking photos, so hopefully I will be posting some interesting ones. I look forward to writing about our amazing school!

What to conclude?

If everyone has come to the same conclusion, then surely that conclusion must be true. But if everyone has come a conclusion because everyone else has come to that conclusion, then surely it can not be the truth, can it?

MAGS Film Night 2016

Monday the 17th was the MAGS Media Film Night where some of the highlights from this years media students were presented at Event Cinemas St Lukes. The videos on displays were from the year 11-13 students and featured advertisements, music videos, and documentaries. It was a lot fun and the pieces were filled with great comedy, drama, and some very talented students.

Here's one that was shown on the night, hopefully we'll be able to post the rest of them soon - yeah it's pretty great (not that I'd be biased or anything >cough< >cough<).

Farewell to Ms. Todd

Ms. Todd is leaving MAGS as of the end of this term and we, here at the blog, would to thanks her for her three years of support, dedication, and creation of the school blog. This has been an interesting and fun opportunity to work on and it would not have been possible without her.

Random thought of the week #4

Random thought of the week

There's a saying that you never truly know the value of what you have until it's gone, you know like those cliché stories of how the guy doesn't realise he's in love until the girl is gone and it's too late? Passenger even wrote a song about it. It's as if it's been drilled into our society to take things for granted, to live in the moment. But how could we survive if everyone we loved and who loved us just suddenly disappeared? We would be lost, empty. We'd have nowhere to run. So when you hear YOLO, instead of thinking it means you are the centre of the universe, think of everything in your life that truly matters. Think of all the people you would be lost without, and then do your best to make the most of the time you have with them, before it's too late. Cherish every friendship, every kind word, every memory, because after all you've only got one chance. So let's make the most of the chance we've got, before it's too late.

Poetry Day!

It's poetry day... So here's a poem!

Golden shimmering leaves fall down, down, down,
Softly landing by my own bare feet.
Dew like the teardrops that glisten in the sun,
The place my world fell down.

Into an abyss of numbness I'm sent
As your laughter haunts my memory
And stifles our hopes of long nights out
And the fate that youth imagines before the fall.

If only I had been there
If only I could have stopped you
And told you you were not alone
But then again, you're gone.

I know Regrets don't change a thing,
But that only rips the heart string
Named hope
And love.
