Reflection of 2017

It’s that time of the year where the year 8’s head off to college and, the year 7’s become the leaders of the school. I’m a year 7 student and next year I will be leading the school and setting the examples for the younger students.

One of the things i’m most proud of 2017 is getting to know people and also building my confidence, while i’m in team 5. The other thing i’m most proud of is being announced as a prefect for 2018. I am looking forward to be leading the school as a prefect!

An important lessons I have learned throughout this year is, “ACHIEVE YOUR PERSONAL BEST”! What do you think achieve your personal best means to you? Personally for me I think it means to never give up with your learning, and also give everything a go! Like Sports, for an example you want to get the try, but you don’t quite know how to. JUST GIVE IT A GO!

I hope that next year I could focus on finishing my work and never getting distracted by my friends. I will always get distracted by my friends and part of that is because we always sit next to each other. So my goal for next year is to never get distracted by other people and, sit next to people that wouldn’t distract me.

If I come across challenges I will always remember to “Never give up”. I have one more year until I will be heading off to college, so i’m making the most of my time in intermediate.

I am looking forward to being leaders of the schools, and looking after the ones younger than me. I am so grateful to have a beautiful mother who loves and cares for me. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my mother. And also to my teachers who have taught me over the past years, I would like to thank you guys as well! Last but not least I would like to thank my family for always encouraging me to try my best at school! I can not wait for 2018!

Talk with Mr Patterson and Raenan

This Morning we had two special visitors come to team 5 to talk to us about Aspiration, Inspiration and Motivation! Our two special visitors was Mr Patterson and Raenan. Raenan is a former student at Pt England School. He came to talk to us about, what it was like being a year 9 for the first time. At Tamaki College he was announced as a deputy Head boy. When he first started college he set his goal to be a head boy, and after 4 years his goal was a success! 

Mr Patterson showed us a video about a boy who attends Manurewa High School. His Name is Dwight. In the video he talked about how his father went to prison for 8 years. His father was part of the Mongrel Mob Gang. Dwight isn't a confident speaker, But it was interesting to hear about his past life with his father.  

Raenan also talked about how it was his first time being a year 9 at Tamaki College. He Talked about how he joined the geek club. He took every Opportunity that was open for him. Raenan was also in the New Zealand Herald. He also got the opportunity to go to a boat with other kids for ten days. It was a really good experience for him. The last thing he said to us was to take as many opportunities because it could take you somewhere.

Perspectives and opinions

Last week Tonga and England played against Each other! It was one of the toughest game iv'e seen. It was the Semi finals to see who will play against Australia. This game was held at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland. It was one of the biggest crowd we've seen ever since 22 years ago! 

Mate Ma'a Tonga Letter

Dear Mate Ma’a Tonga Team,

First of all I would like to congratulate you all on making it through the semi finals against England. It was one of the toughest match, but it was a really good game to watch! I know how much this meant for all of yous but look on the bright side, yous made it to the semi finals. That’s something right! Even though we didn’t get the result we all wanted, at least you had a big crowd supporting your from the sideline, and also around the world! You made all the fans pray for you and also crying with happiness when they see yous.

I have learnt a lot about the supporters and how much they had faith in the Mate Ma’a Tonga team! I have also learnt a lot about myself and also to keep going and never give up even when things get tough! What I enjoyed the most was when yous made a comeback in the second half against England. Most of us had no faith in yous but then yous all worked as a team. I enjoyed the teamwork yous put on the field, it inspired the little kids to be like yous. I didn’t even know there was that much tongans in Auckland until now! Your team made a lot of people proud, especially the King who came from Tonga to watch the semi finals! I’m pretty sure he was very proud of yous! Congratulation once again boys! Otua Mo Tonga Ko Hoku Tofia!

Your Sincerely,
