My name is Ruby Simpson. I’m about to head into the final year of my

Primary Teaching degree and I’m super excited to be working with you all during the Summer Learning Journey.

I live in Auckland with my Mum and Dad, 2 brothers, a sister, and dog (who is totally part of the family). We haven’t moved once since I was born, and it’s great to be living in the house I was brought home too.

I am a big fan of all things music and love to play the piano and sing (which drives my family crazy). In my spare time, I also read a lot of books, bake a lot of cookies, and knit a lot of blankets. Hanging out with my friends and family is always important and I enjoy being a part of my local church as well, where I work as the administrator.

I’m really looking forward to getting to know you over the summer and can’t wait to hear what stories you have to share with us through your blogs.

WILLY - Blogger

My name is Willy and I'm currently a student at Edgewater College. I used to attend Tamaki Primary, where I went into digital learning and, began my blog. I have a passion for blogging, as it allows me to really share my thoughts and learning with the world, and I've been doing it since 2012! Isn't that a long time? I also enjoy sports, like badminton or volleyball; it really gets the blood pumping with the action going on! I also enjoy listening to music. My favourite musical artist is David Bowie. I can't forget reading books as well - my favourite genre is thriller. It just draws me into the twists and turns - really thrilling. Anyway, I can't wait to see what's in store for the Summer Learning Journey these coming holidays!

Hello, my name is Leo Aholelei and I’m currently a Year 9 Student at Tamaki

College. I am grateful to be part of a project that can also  provide feedback to people.

I am in love with art (specifically manga or anime). I feel like art can be expressed in a multiple of ways. My favourite piece of art I’ve read or watched has to be the Fullmetal Alchemist series for its creativity with introducing characters and also creating  intriguing  plot devices.

That aside, I am in love with computers (probably like most people). I can’t spend 2-5 hours without having a device which can connect me to the internet! It’s really strange to be very honest.

I am very honoured to be part of this journey and hope whoever reads this has a good time blogging!
