How do I get to school. - Writing an Explanation

I live in Otahuhu and my aunt lives in Papatoetoe. I have to wake up at 7:00 a.m. to get ready to come to school. It take about 20 minutes for my aunt to come and pick me up. She comes with my little cousin in the car.

It is about 16km to get to Glenbrae. It takes 40 minutes to get to school. You have to go through Panmure shopping centre and into Saint Patricks. There is heavy traffic sometimes when we come to school.

After we drop off my little cousin we have to go through Point England and then from the roundabout, past Tamaki College. You have to make a left turn into where the dairy is and you go straight, and there you are at Glenbrae school.

  1. What a long journey you have each morning Anthony! You must have to get up very early in the morning. I too have a long way to come each day.

  2. You described your morning routine clearly, Anthony. Do you, your cousin and your aunt have interesting conversations on the way to school?

  3. I like the way you explained how you get to school from home Anthony. Great to see the effort and thought you put in when you write. Keep up the good work.
