Billy Graham

Today Billy Graham came to speak to Patu Team about the value of listening, how to be a good friend and making good choices. When we got back to class we wrote some personal responses about what we were thinking. Mrs Adams wrote her one on the board.

Hi my name is Lachlan and I am going to talk to you about one of the coolest, funniest and nicest guys in the world…

My opinion is that he is sooo confident and he will not judge you.He told Trentham School that someone who can do something but not very good, is better than someone who can not do it at all.

He can play the mouth organ, the guitar and probably heaps more of them.
Billy Graham is called a motivationist.

Saving Money

Today we had a visit from an ASB representative that gave us some tips about saving money...

Rudolph is telling you what he learnt....

Do chores at home and outside and save your pocket money.
Run a small business with a group like a sausage sizzle or a Garage Sale.
You can get an eftpos card when you are 12 and a credit card when you are 18 or over- you can bank your money.
Spend some money and save some too.
You could babysit or do some jobs for other people.
