Zac's writing

Tuesday, 21 May 2013

Below is an extract from Zac's story. This story was written about being pushed out of your comfort zone.

It was dark the next morning. We were standing on the dock where all the yachts like ours were tied. It’s not a great feeling when you’re the only one feeling down and everyone else is enthusiastic. We loaded all our bags and the food inside the yacht, Dad hoisted the sail and we set off. Once we were out of the sounds and Mum had headed inside, I saw dark clouds on the brim of the mountains of the sounds.
“Dad,” I said in a worried tone of voice, “There’s clouds just over the hills and they don’t look awfully happy.”
Dad turned around casually and replied “Not to worry, The Metservice said it was going to be a light northeasterly so I reckon once the sun hits the land it’ll heat up and the wind will fill in from the north-east, blowing those clouds of yours away.”
I was almost convinced.

We chose this story because it used a wide range of vocabulary and made you want to read on.

Hi room 13,

Well done to everyone! We had our cross country on the 22nd of may and it was impossible! All the year 8's had to run 3km's and most of us were dying near the end.
