Do you keep a map in our pocket? I do now. Because you never know you might need a map like when you're on a road trip or trying to find the rugby stadium or when your going for a bike ride you never know . This is the story of why I carry a map.
It was the worst shopping trip of my life. I was at pak'n'save with mum we were in the worst aisle of all... da da daa.. THE VEGGIE aisle. All I could see was disgusting green vegetables. In my mind I was spewing . I sprinted as fast as I could trying to get away. I didn't notice where my mum was or where I was . I was scared out of my mind as a five year old kid would when they've just been lost.
I was screaming at the top of my lungs. I had to think of a plan to find my way back. I knew what to do- I will backtrack to the vegetable aisle where I last saw mum . I shivered with nerves hoping my plan would work. I found the vege aisle to find mum. I felt like I was spy, a really sacred spy. I scanned the aisle, looking for her but she wasn't there. Luckily I had I plan b, I was going to find her this time.
I ran as fast as I could to the customer service desk asking to the lady “Do you know where my mum is?” She asked for my name. I replied with Cooper. She spoke into a big black microphone “Has any lost their kid called Cooper? My plan worked, my mum came straight away.
And that's why you should always carry a map because you never know if you might get lost at pak'nsave. If you don't you will regret it.

Our class has been learning about Maori rituals. We learnt about what they do to welcome people, they do a powhiri which is a welcoming ceremony. At the start of the year I knew nothing about Maori culture so I was prestructural. But now I know much more about Maori culture and how they welcome people so now I'm relational because I know when and how to use it. Now that I know about Maori culture I respect it much more. Here is an audio link of our learning
