Migration Model/paragraph

Many people are migrating from Tokelau to New Zealand and not much of them are wanting to go back to their home. There are multiple push and pull reasons on why people want to stay in New Zealand. The push reasons are the negative reasons that cause people to leave their home or their country and the pull reasons are the positive reasons that force people out of their home country. There are two different flows, in this migration model the mainstream flow is bigger because there are more people migrating from Tokelau to New Zealand. The counter stream flow is thinner because not many people are moving back to Tokelau. Most people move to New Zealand for a better education or a better life in general. Then there’s some people who move to New Zealand because of the weather or maybe some people like the food in New Zealand and they don’t really like Island or the Tokelauan food in particular.

Tokelau in 20 years time

                                                            TOKELAU IN 2038

                          Predict what the future of Tokelau will be like in 20 years time.

In 20 years time I think there may not be any more land in Tokelau due to all the climate changes happening to all 3 atolls and also rising sea levels. I also think there might be less traditional foods eaten or events because Tokelauan people are starting to only eat imported foods and using more modern ways to gather and collect food. Another possibility that could happen in 20 years time in Tokelau is that they might have modernised houses and cars. They might also have proper lined concrete roads instead of just plain gravel or rocks. In the future they might also become more independent and no longer a part of or teamed up with New Zealand. It is also possible for them to have hovercraft vehicles that get them to different destinations faster. These are all just ideas but maybe in 20 years time Tokelau could still be the same.

A trip to remote Tokelau

                                             A trip to Remote Tokelau

Sitting on a boat, full of excitement and happiness wondering how happy my family would be to see me. I lay down for a while and attempt to take a nap but the excitement was a bit too much for me to sleep. I know my whole family, especially my parents would be very happy to see me after many years I spent studying back in Australia. Getting closer to my village, noticing all the changes and thinking about the even better changes that I can make with all the knowledge that I've gathered from the Australian people.

Social studies concepts.

Today in Social Studies we learnt about 2 new Social Studies Concepts, one was Migration and Globalisation.

The first concept Migration means moving from one region to another. There are two different migrations the first one being external migration and the other being internal migration. External Migration is when you move from region to region (country to country) while Internal Migration is Moving areas or houses in the same country or region.

The second social studies concept we learnt about was Globalisation. Globalisation is the process by which businesses or other organisations develop international influence or start operating in other countries and becomes worldwide. For example Facebook which actually started in America but is now worldwide and internationally famous, this is a good example of Globalisation.Image result for migrationImage result for globalization

What does A.N.Z.A.C Day mean to me?

What does A.N.Z.A.C mean to me.?

To me, A.N.Z.A.C day is a very important day because it has a lot to do with the soldiers and also everyone else that was involved in WW1 in Gallipoli Peninsula.  It is very important because it is a day to appreciate and commemorate the soldiers who passed during the war and also the survivors that returned to their families in relief.

Why is it important to commemorate A.N.Z.A.C day? 

It is important to commemorate Anzac Day because it is a special day or remembering and honouring those who had the courage to fight for their country in the WW1. Also because we will never forget the heroes that fought for us and our country back then so it is important to commemorate them on this special day.

Toro Nagashi

The tradition I chose to do my presentation on is Toro Nagashi which is a Traditional Japanese Ceremony. I chose to research on this tradition is because Japan is a country that I know nothing about and I thought that researching about a Japanese tradition would help me learn much more.

Some interesting aspects about this ceremony/tradition is that they actually use a special type of paper to make the lanterns that they put in the water. Another interesting fact is that the ceremony is actually held on the final night of the Bon festival which is another Japanese tradition/celebration.

Last week I had to present my work to the class. While I was presenting I felt confident but I know I could have done better. I feel I could improve in providing more information in my slides and having more eye contact with the audience. There were some positive aspects during my presentation such as the volume of my voice. I felt like I spoke clear and confidently.
