Paying It Forward...

Have you ever showed Manaakitanga by helping someone across the road?
What about showing Whanaungatanga by helping someone pick up papers that dropped on the ground even though you're in a rush to get somewhere?
Have you ever been inspired by the caring acts of other people?
Well our class have been watching this video which was based on paying it forward. Everyone in this video was inspired by another person, then they inspired another person.
Everyone was helping each other.
Check out this video, and leave your thoughts in the comment section below😊

  1. I think the moral of this story is to inspire others, inspire others to do the right thing and pay it forward when you witness something helpful. Like, helping people cross the road, or helping to carry something out, etc.

    Somehow to me the lyrics in this song, matched the video. Both the song and video were inspirational and it felt as if the artist wrote the song for this video.I think that the message of this video is to persuade others into choosing their right, and helping someone get back up when they're feeling down.

    While watching this video I was amazed at the acts of strangers to other people, everyone who was inspired helped out people they didn’t know. I think that this is an important video to watch because people can learn something from this, like helping and caring for others in times of need.

  2. The authors purpose of this is that the author wants us to recognise to always help others when they need it.
    I think the author used this song because if you give a little love you could get a little love from others.
    The message to this video is to always be kind and always show Manaakitanga where ever you go.
    By watching this video made me want to make a change by wanting to actually get into helping others and give something that they really need.
    This is a very important video because it is like really wanting to express yourself in showing this video to others so people know to always want to help.

  4. I think the purpose is trying to let others know that we should all work together and tell people to do the right thing and someone will back you up.

    I think that the song is trying to tell us is to show a little bit of love and show us kindness also respect.

    We need to show Respect, and that I think the message is that you should treat other the way you want them to treat you.

    This vidoe It makes me feel happy because I think that everyone should be treated the same and should be treat like the same you want.

    It is a good vidoe because I think why because that most of us should learn how to show respect to others and show kindness.

  10. I think the purpose of the video is telling other people if they see someone else showing kindness to others that they should help others and
    I think the person who made this video chose this song because it is like a song that is about helping others and it is sort of like the song is ment for the video.

    I think the meaning of this video is to pay kindness on to others that need help. This video made me feel happy because people were helping others when they needed some help And sad sometimes because some people just look and walk away from the person that needs help.
    I think this video is important to watch because people might watch this and think about showing kindness to others.

  11. My opinion:
    What I think the authors purpose of this video is to notice what struggles happen around us for us to help to keep each other happy and noticed.

    The song he/she used was interesting because it sound like being peaceful around each other and to connect with others feelings.

    The message of the film made me think that we should help each other and to pay it forward to give each other help.

    This video made me feel glad that there are people that are confident enough to do something good so that they have no shame.
    This is important because you could learn something and do it to help someone out. Because it is good to help others and to make them feel better and not to struggle.

    I learnt a lot from this and I hope 1 day I will do something like this.

  12. I have learnt so much in this video "Paying it Forward". I really like how people show kindness to others when they need help. The song for this video is a really matching song to the video. Watching this video was very inspiring because some people need to show kindness to others. From my point of view, I like the scene when everybody comes and paints the wall with the little boy. That's pretty much showing our school value "Manaakitanga"!😂😂

  13. What is the author's purpose?
    The author is trying to say that if you do something nice for someone they can learn and do it to someone else. It is called something like this
    (paying it forward).

    Why do you think the author used this particular song for this video?
    I think they used the song because it had the words to the message inside of it, and it kind of suits the video

    What do you think the message of the video is?
    How did watching this video make you feel?
    I think that the authors propose for the whole video was if you do something good to someone another person can see you and they will do the same thing to.

    Is this an important video to watch? Why do you think so?
    I think that this video is very important to watch because it can help you do more good in the world. For example if someone sees someone help someone out of a bus they go do the same thing.

  14. In the purpose of this video. I think this video is about the way they change when they help. When boy was looking at the boy get bullied. He thinking that he had to do something about the boy by helping him and he felt sad for him, So he help him. If he show's the school values everyday then he might have a chance to always show them by doing the right thing when no one is looking.

    In the video, I found out about the song that was played by the author's video. What I think about this song is that it helps the song to relate to the video that was playing. The song would help to show the school values and also able to help each other.

    I think this video will help people to try and do the right thing when no one is looking so that they can show the school values

  15. I think that the author’s purpose is to show people that we can help those in need we could start a chain reaction and people would start to help everyone else.When we help others you would also get some kind of a warm feeling inside.

    In the song it’s saying “ If you give a little love you can get a little love on your own”. I think that this a good message for people to learn because they will learn that they can get that warm feeling all the time if they help others. I also think that when the boy started to help the boy that little quote came in the perfect timing

    I think that this video is trying to show us how much trials we face in life and it’s showing that if we help others and help them through their trials we could have a better day and we would make their day.

    In the beginning of this video it made me feel sad about the things that happened or what people did to others.But when the boy started helping the video started to give me that warm feeling when I was watching people helping others.

    I think that this is a very good video to watch because it can inspire people to try help others facing challenges and trials. I also think that this video will teach kids around the world that we should have a positive mindset and not laugh when people make mistakes.

  16. I think the author's purpose to try to send this video to others that is around the world and let them know that when you are trying to help others let them know that you are helping them with love and kindness inside you so they can show it to others and when that person helps another person it can move on to the other person and it will keep moving on to others.

    Why do you think the author used this particular song for this video? So who ever is watching the video they can forces on the video and listen to the music on the background, so they can bring it together and see what is really happening.

    What do you think the message of the video is?
    I think the message of this video is trying to let everyone know that helping isn't just helping people by people its showing kindness and love to every one in the world so they can have some love for them-self and even you can have some love to your self too.

    How did watching this video make you feel?
    When I was watching this video it made me feel like a different person and making me feel like helping others more with love and kindness and because everyone can feel loved and that we all care for each other and that we should all stick up for our self and making the right choice.

    Is this an important video to watch? Why do you think so?
    (YES) because it's important to leave some footprints of you helping people so when they see it they can follow and make the right choice and so they can look up to you. And because you are helping others even thou they are not your family members or friends.

  17. I think the author purpose is to show kindness in each other and it’s awesome , and to teach people how to be kind to each other. When people are showing kindness to each other our world will be peace. For example if you see someone throwing rubbish and someone see’s you they will also do the same thing , and our world will be missy , But if we show kindness to our world , our world will be missy.

    Why do you think the author used this particular song for this video?
    Because it suits in the video by showing different types of kindness and by passing on and passing on two different types of people.

    What do you think the message of this video is?
    I think the purpose of this video is if you do something good to someone and someone sees you, they will also do the same thing too, and so on and so on. For example someone is picking up a rubbish and someone sees they will do the samething.

    How did watching this video make you feel?
    I feel for this video was that if you do something good(Kindness) to someone and someone sees you , they will also do the same thing. For example - if you don’t show good to someone and someone sees you they will also do the same thing to you . That’s why show good thing to other people cause people is watching u.

    is this an important video to watch? Why do you think so?
    This video is important because it means that you did good to someone and someone learns from the things that you did good.

  18. I think that the author's purpose is to get people to do the right thing and help each other so they can go to where they need to go like work , home or anywhere else . Because doing that makes them think that you are a kind person and they want to do the same thing in return.

    I think that the song that the author chose means that , If you show some kindness to others , you might get some of that kindness back for helping them and being so kind.

    I think that the authors message , is to help others all the time because they can help you as well .

    This video made me feel , Actually quite happy . Just seeing that a whole lot of people were helping each other when they drop their things.

    For me , I think it is an important video to watch because you could learn something from the video and maybe do the same thing as the people in the video did.

  21. I’ve watching this video many time,from this video I’ve know this video’s author is want to telling us helping each other,give a little love to others,you will get a little love from others.
    The background music is called give a little love,from the title I know that this song is about love.
    The song is a good choices to put in the video,because in the lyrics it says if you give a little love,you can get a little love of your own.Also,I think this video want to told us if we give a little love to others,others will give you a little love,if you give others help,when you need a help,it will have people to help you.Like in the video,they are helping each others and save them that don’t makes others get hurt!
    Why is this video is important to have a look?Because it will tell you how is important to help,a little help can even save a people’s life,in the video by 3:00,you can see a woman drags a man's arm that he didn’t get hurt by the car.
    I think those are the author want to told us,and this is a good video that can give more people to see.

  22. I think the author's purpose is to pay it forward and to let others know to do the right thing.

    Cause it suits the song and in the song it says “If you give a little love you can get a little love on your own”.I think that, that message means to give a little love and respect to others and if you do that then you could get love and respect back.

    To show random act of kindness to others.

    Speechless because there were too many good things happening.Also when they saw someone doing the right thing they payed it forward and did it to other people.

    I think it is important to watch so other people know what to do next time they see someone struggling with things .

  23. In my perspective I believe the message the author was trying to share was..

    To pay the good things forward. And that helping a little can change a lot.

    In my eyes the video and the song went. With the characters acting their actions to me spoke the lyrics of the song which was played.

    I think that this is a very important video to watch because it can influence others to do the right thing.

  24. I think the author's purpose was to let everyone know that whatever you do there is always someone looking and that if you show kindness to others it will keep on going around to other people around the world.

    I think the message in the video was that if we show more positive things like loving one another for who they are and also showing kindness everywhere you go.and if we do that the world will be a better places.

    Watching this video made me feel a lot of things,it made me feel happy,joyful and made me feel like helping a lot of people that need help with something in there lives or just need a hand doing something.And also this made me feel really emotional seeing everyone coming together and helping one another.

    In my point of view it was important to watch this powerful video because it made me learn a lot of new things, that if you show a little love you can get your own little love back and also there were good message,like if you see someone that is going through a hard time you should show them that you will be there for them by their sides everyday and that will surely make them feel happy.
