Tamaki @ TechOn the first day of school we had tech at tamakI I was so happy that we had tech on the first day.So we had to line up to get ready to go to tech,then we started walking to tech in different groups like wood work cooking and other groups that we do.When we got there we had to line up where the teachers are standing so we went to our class we were writing about how we find out things like how they make things.In wood work you get to make anything like a truck and a car. I really like tech because teach people how to lean things.

The tornado hit North Shore suburb of Albany at around 3pm yesterday,killing one person and injuring around 20, with winds of up to 200kmh ripping through roofs and tossing cars. A steady stream of people have been shopping and taking photos and about 10 workers from the Place makers construction site have been at the scene since 7am waiting to be allowed to return to their workplace. Inspector Gary Davey said police hoped to have a better idea in the next few hours stores at the Mega Centre could reopen. Shopping centre workers are lining along the road next to the mall waiting to hear when they will be allowed back to work.
