Last week was our last week at the life education caravan. The life education caravan educates us to learn about how the body works. This year the year 7 & 8’s learnt about how drugs and alcohol affect your brain and body. The life education caravan is where we learn about the brain/roro tenana/body and life/ora.
Hauora or well is the human body. The human body goes through puberty in different ways. Puberty is one of the most difficult forms of life to go through. As you go through puberty it would be stressful for you because you will be hungry all the time. You will have a lot of growth spurts your body, mind and emotions will change just like that.
As we grow the brains maturity will extend around the brain. Well the rest of your body grows your brain will stay the same and have the same number of neurons as you were born with. Without the brain you wouldn't be able to move breath and you wouldn't even be alive.
People that are addicted have drugs or drink alcohol 20.4.7. People that take drugs and their brains have the maturity of a five year old. People that drink at a young age could die or be unconscious because there tenana or body can not handle the power of beer or wine.

8-Ball is a popular game in many country. 8-Ball was started in the 19th century. The first ever 8-Ball recorded was in 1908. 8-Ball is a popular game in the U.S.A there are 16 balls and there are 15 coloured balls. The ball colours are 1 and 9: yellow, 2 and 10: blue, 3 and 11: red, 4 and 12: purple, 5 and 13: orange, 6 and 14: green, 7 and 15: brown, 8: black and the white is the cue.
You can continue playing until you do a foul or you don’t hit a ball. While in the process of the game. When you're playing eight-ball one person is chosen to break which means you hit the ball and you have to try and split all of the 15 balls. When you get the ball in the holes you get your numbers if you get a one in you get 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 and the others get 9,10,11,12,13,14 and 15 the 8 ball is the last ball to get in for any player.
8-Ball is a fun moving activity for a party game, Friendly game or a family game. 8-ball is also a difficult sport to play you have to stretch and try to hit the cue before you run out of time. You only get a certain amount of time to hit the ball with cue. The best part of the game is when you win.
When playing 8-ball you need technique and patience. It would be hard to hit the ball if you're shaking or not concentrating. When you hit all your balls in all you would have left is the black ball. If you hit the black ball in without hitting the other ball it would be an automatic win for your opponent and you will be disqualified from the game.

The Commonwealth Games are refered to be the ‘friendly’ games. The commonwealth games are a sporting event which include many sports such as sprinting, rugby, high jump and many other events. There are 21 sports and 272 events in the commonwealth games this year. There are 51 countries in the commonwealth games, however 73 teams compete in the commonwealth games.
The first Commonwealth Games were held in Hamilton Canada in 1930. In 1942 and 1946 the commonwealth Games were delayed due to the second world war. From 1930 to 1950 the commonwealth games were known as the British Empire Games. The Commonwealth Games are held every four years in a different Country. The way they have the commonwealth games in there Country is by bidding on the commonwealth games to host it. New Zealand has held the commonwealth games twice.
The athletes in the teams are the best of the best in their country. My favorite sport in the commonwealth games would have to be shooting. The thing I like about shooting is the men’s small-bore rifle 3 position 50m. My favorite male is Warren Potent from Australia and my favorite female is Natalie Rooney from New Zealand.
