Kia ora my name is Kiana Elizabeth Eminia Barber and I am here to convince you that passion week should really be passion day. Why? Because I think passion week is too long.

Firstly, we should have passion once a week on Fridays because it is the most fun day of the week. it also gives kids an opportunity to follow their dreams.

Secondly, you learn your maths, reading, writing and then at the end of the week you learn the passion which you get to choose.

Thirdly, we should have passion week because it is something new that you can learn.

In conclusion we should try to change passions every 3 weeks or more because for some people it can get boring.
