Smart Goals

A smart goal is a goal that is:

Specific
Measurable
Attainable
Relevant
Time-bound




1. I want to be able to be an accurate three-point shooter in basketball by the start of next season.

2. I want to read 20 books by the end of week 3

3. Make the West Coast touch team by the end of next season by working hard.


The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior

The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior from a French perspective.

We should not be a nuclear-free NZ if there is a war we need to be able to defend ourselves.
We can also sell the nuclear bombs and make money. I agree with the French who tested these bombs. They were testing them on atolls away from civilisation. How are they supposed to prepare with annoying ships sailing round the atolls. The island belonged to the French!

Ok so they blew up a boat in Auckland harbour and killed someone. Maybe they shouldn’t have done that but what’s the big deal! They paid NZ $13 million and NZ still sentenced the two people who blew up the boat ten years in jail.

After spending a year in jail they were sent to Tahiti to spend the rest of their imprisonment there. However after only a couple of years both had been smuggled back to France. Of course NZers were furious but there was nothing they could do the agents were on French ground and the NZ government could do nothing without declaring a full-blown war and giving all the time the French had spent on nuclear bombs the French would win it, which is why we should not be a nuclear-free zone. If we had nuclear power we could have gone to war with the French and won. After this NZ became completely nuclear-free.

Thank you for reading my opinion on the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior. I wrote this from a French perspective and do not actually believe this.

1981 Springboks tour.

1981 Springboks tour.
I’m a protester I don’t want the game to be played because;
In 1921 Springboks beat a NZ Māori A South African reporter was disgusted seeing white NZers cheering on Maori.
SA didn’t want to play black people when half their population is black!
This isn’t fair anyone should be allowed to play rugby. In protests hundreds were injured.
This game should not be played if the black people can’t play.
Black people are some of the best players. When ABs went to SA they lost without Maori. With Maori they won. Imagine the ABs today without black people!
If they played the American basketball team today imagine who couldn’t play! LeBron James! Kevin Durant! Draymond Green (Imagine his reaction)! Black people can be amazing athletes. Running: Usain Bolt Basketball: Michael Jordan Rugby: Aaron Smith I could go on for ages.

Thank you for taking the time to read my opinion on the 1981 Springboks tour.
