Tech at Tamaki College.

The chattering of children filled the street. You could hear the echo of everyone, hurting my eardrums. We all looked like a flock of sheep, with teachers as shepherds. The Intermediate assembled in the street and sat down quietly, because we all knew we were heading off to tech at Tamaki college . I was in the group 7a with my buddy and captain Toreka.

“WOW” was what I thought when I saw the room. I had just stepped into a new environment,and I wasn’t used to it. “ Grab a stool and take a seat “ said a mysterious man. I walked to an empty table and took a chair. Just then the man introduced himself” My name is Mr Grundy and I am your teacher “. So he is our teacher “ I thought. Then his thundering voice filled the class again: “ Now this is the class of wood works...

I glanced at all of the tools around this class and I must tell you I was a bit weary of using them, but apart from that I was excited. I didn’t know what to expect from this class. I was so jiggly and jumpy, because it was my first ever option class at Tamaki College, and I wanted to remember it.

“ UURGH “I said. I was getting frustrated with myself. Do you know why? Because I didn’t have any Ideas. I was trying to think outside the box but my brain was getting tired. My piece of paper was sitting there, It looked like it was staring at me, mocking me. Just then I had a tick in my brain. It was like my hands were doing the work for themselves. When I was done with my designs I had a variety of options to choose from. At the end I decided to make....Woops it was supposed to be a surprise.

Sadly the lesson had come to an end. I moved sluggishly to the door. I reluctantly dragged my legs to the steps. That lesson was a good one, I left wishing it could have lasted a bit longer.

  1. Hey Selena,
    I like the way you leave your audience hanging, wondering what the eventual product might be! I'm certainly looking forward to finding out.
