Tuesday night, the year 8 students, the teachers and the students parents attended the Graduation for 2016. Awards we given, speeches were told and food was eaten. Sione Taufa had given a speech that had powerful messages. To dream big, embrace the struggles, and to work hard. He was very inspirational as he talked about being the only pacific islander in his department, and his steps and how he got there. I'm proud of how far we have become and I hope everyone does well in their future education.

We have been learning how to enlarge our image. I first selected an image, put in on a Google Drawing document and placed a grid over it. My grid was 8x6. Each square was 1cm x 1cm.
I worked out my scale factor which was; 1cm represented 35cm. I practiced how I was going to draw my grid on a piece of paper. To practice I used a scale factor of 5 cm. I marked 5 cm, 8 times across and 6 times downwards. We then went outside and drew our grid. We used measuring tapes, chalk, and straight meter rulers to draw the straight lines. I measured 35 cm across 8 times, and 6 times vertically. I didn’t have time to complete drawing my image, but I managed to complete my grid. It was easy to mark my 35 cm but I found it a bit difficult to draw the straight lines.

Walt: enlarge a picture.
I learnt how to enlarge pictures by 2 scale factors. I counted the squares to make sure I drew my picture on the correct square. I found this a bit challenging as I had to make sure that I copied my picture accurately on the grid. Next I would like to enlarge a picture by 3 scale factors.
