Career week .

In week 8 , the students of Room 7 had to chose what career we would like to do when we grow up.

I have chosen to become a Aviation security officer (ASO). As a ASO  they are to perform duties to help ensure the safety of New Zealand. To be a Aviation security you have to be dedicated , responsible and willing to commit to the safety within the airport. 

They are required to 
  • Screen carried on luggage 
  • Screen check in luggage
  • Watch the airport workers 
  • Search the aeroplane
You need a 
  • Full New Zealand licence 
  • A New Zealand residency or citizenship
  • Good english (Other languages would be an advantage)
  • Flexible around work hours
  • Good peoples skills , integrity , honesty and trustworthiness .
  • The competencies we look for are:

Striving – Drive for achievement, need for expertise, drive to put beliefs in action;
Thinking – Focus, discipline, personal responsibility; and
Relating – Empathy, attentiveness to individual differences, ability to persuade, taking charge.

Personally I would like to become a ASO because I would like to experience someone trying to import drugs.

    My Decimals

    This year decimals were my weak point. Going through this year I now know how to solve decimal equations. I am now going to show you how I solve my decimal .

    For example. : 7.2 x 1.8= ?

    First I multiply these numbers avoiding the decimal point. 
    72x18=1296. But then where do I put the decimals ?

    Looking at my equation there is 1 place before both decimals. 1+1=2. So I move the decimal 2 places from the end of my answer. 12.96

    Camp 2012

    There was so many things I enjoyed. Archery was one of the best. It was my first time and a great experience. It was harder than it looked. I wasn't to good but got some good shots. If I had another chance to play I would take it . Camp was great.

    My nutrient is Carbohydrates. To share what I have learnt my group and I have made a Acrostic Poem.

    C- Complex carbohydrates.
    These carbohydrates  are found at the bottom of the food pyramid . These foods give  us long lasting energy.

    We should all have a good attitude towards our eating. Making sure that what we put on our bodies are healthy.

    Both of these foods contain Carbohydrate, Vitamins , Fibre , Minerals , Water and Fat.

    Oxygen is part of the 3 main things we need to live. W-Water O-Oxygen F-Fitness

    H- Hazel nuts
    Food grown from the ground contain fibre and carbohydrates. 

    Different yoghurt have different fruits. We should have at least 2 serves of fruit a day.

    D- Diet
    A diet is food that people and animals Habitually eat.

    R-Rock melon
    Rock melon is a fruit and is often compared to a Watermelon.

    A Appetite is how much you eat. 

    Treats are yum . But it is better to eat less of lollies and more of Vegetables.

    E- Exercise
    Exercise helps our bodies to breath better , Makes our heart and bones stronger.

    S-Simple Carbohydrates
    Simple Carbs are found at the TOP of the food pyramid. Chocolate, Fizzy drinks , Lollies Etc. These contain ALOT of sugar. But they also change into fat REALLY fast.

    I hope you have learnt something about the nutrient Carbohydrates.
