Social Responsibility

What is Social Responsibility?
Social responsibility is making the right choices through your actions. Whether it's in Pysiccal Education in school or outside of school.
What level were you during our lesson and why?
I think I was at level 3 because I displayed respect and good choices. I showed respect by listening to others such as the P.E teacher/ instructor and also my teammates. I made the right choice by standing up for a team member who is neglected or being put down by others.
What could you do in order to improve your level of Social Responsibility for the next lesson?
I need to improve in working with people that I don't usually work with. Also complimenting others besides my friends and people that I know. That's pretty much it.

I disagree with spraying 1080. Even though it is used to track down the pests but it's also killing other unharmed animals such as our native bird's kiwis. I think that they should put a stop to 1080 because it's too harmful and dangerous for the environment. We need to use a different and unharmful method to track those pests. I think that we should just take the birds and kiwi's to a safe place and then use the 1080.

The Process of a Law

The process of a law:

First, an idea comes into parliament, the government, opposition or people that may be interested.  That idea is turned into a bill which will be written down as a draft.  Now the bill has its first reading in Parliment which is the house of representatives and there are about 120 representatives. After that, the bill is sent to the select committee. The select Committee studies the bill carefully, any interested people can submit ideas on the bill to this committee. After going through the bill, it is sent back to the parliament for its second reading. There's another vote. The bill is voted clause by clause which is called the "House in Committee" stage. The bill is then read to the parliament for the third time and another vote is taken. Lastly, the bill is taken to the Governor-General. The Governor-General makes her decision if she agrees she signs the bill if not the bill is sent back to the select committee.

I disagree and agree with the fact that the Australian government is deporting New Zealand
people. Surely the australian do have the right to send them back for presenting bad behaviour,
although I also disagree that new zealand people are being sent back without fair trial or have not
charged. Since Morrison became Prime minister of Australia, I think that he will have a strong
relationship with Jacinda Adern.

I think that foreign land owners should not be allowed to sell New Zealand bottled water overseas. Just because they bought the land still doesn’t mean they have the right to take our water.  Like Marama Davidson said "We need to ensure that we are not giving away this resource to international corporations to reap profits from at the expense of New Zealand's best interests."  If they use our water they should at least label them and say it’s from New Zealand because the water does not belong to them. I feel disgusted because they are basically using us to benefit themselves. So I  deeply agree that the labour and the green party should make a new Act and stop the company such as Chinese bottler Nongfu Spring Co Ltd from extracting our water.

If I was cyberbullying someone, one strategy I could use is talking to someone about my situation and why I am bullying them online.

  1. Don’t give out personal information online.

Plastic Bag Ban

Today I read an article on the government decision to ban plastic bags.

I disagree with the government's decision because like Simon bridges said banning plastic bag is not going make any difference. Of course, it would definitely be a good impact on the environment but how would we pack our shopping? Or where do we put our rubbish? The prime minister should focus more on business crisis because from Simon bridges perspective business is a bigger problem then nagging over plastic bags because the supermarkets already have it under control.
