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,

Samoa

Perspectives and Opinions


Rugby League has already started and there has been a lot of celebrations happening at the moment! It has been a busy week for all the teams! This week I have been working on the Rugby league game and what my opinions on what the teams a feeling! I support every team playing and hope for the best! 

How to engage your audience for Manaiakalani.

What does it take to make a good quality movie to keep your audience entertained for! Manaiakalani Film Festival, what does that mean? Every year we make a movie to show on the big screen! You probably have no idea what i’m trying to explain to you, well stay tune to follow these easy step on how to make an entertaining movie!

Look alive! When you're being asked to be in a video always look alive even when you don’t want to, just act like you do. When you're looking alive it will make your movie even more interesting to watch, and the audience will just want to keep watching more of it! If you're not going to look alive while filming then it will make your movie look boring, and it wouldn’t be fun to watch it. Even if you're not in the mood for filming, you still can smile until you have finish filming.

The last step is to Speak clearly, so that the audience knows what you're saying and what the topic is about. It is very important to speak clearly, so that we could hear everything you say. The easiest thing to do is write a script and learn it so that you know what your talking about. Always make sure when you're learning your script, have expressions so that you could make your film look Funny and also entertaining. As easy as that!

Here were some of my easy steps you could do to make your movie have good quality and entertaining for us to watch. I hope my advice was clear and understanding for you to read.

Achieving your personal best!

How would you Achieve your personal best? Or have your already achieved your personal best during school on athletics day? If you have no idea on how to achieve your personal best then follow my steps on how to achieve your personal best!

On Athletics day we have events like Shot Put, Javelin, High Jump, Discus, Relay and Sprints. Whatever activity you're not best at you should always try your best. There are heaps of activity you’re really good at, but your shout always train for the things you’re not best at.

Another way to achieve your personal best is to always stay calm in whatever event you’re in. If you don’t make it into the top 4, you shouldn’t always be sad, you should always keep your head high and always end with a smile. Why? Because it doesn’t matter what you come in these events, at least you tried your best!

Another to way to Achieve your personal best is to find somebody that you inspire. Once you have found somebody that you inspire, then always follow their example. It is always good to follow that person you inspire, because it would help you to achieve your personal best!. Well who do I inspire? Well my mother inspires me because she would always tell me to try my best even if I don't make it. So who do you Inspire?

So there you have it, follow my three steps then maybe one day you will achieve your personal best. What activity do I like on Athletics day? Well my favourite event on Athletics day is sprints because it will help me to achieve my personal best by running as fast as I could?

What it means to be a good role model?

Have you ever been recognised by someone as being a good role model? Or maybe you had someone in your life who has taught you how to become a really good role model? If you have absolutely no idea what i’m talking about, then follow my steps on how to become a good role model!

Well, being a good role model is someone who is always Confident in themselves and always positive. You wouldn’t want someone who always tries to put you down. For an example my friend Sabrina. She is always there for me even when i’m feeling sad. But most of the times she is always Encouraging me to do my personal best! Sabrina does anything to make me have a smile on my face everyday. A really good role model is somebody who is always there by your side even when things gets tough. And That is what a good role model should look like!

Another way to be a good role model is to always show respect to people around you. If your not showing respect then that’s just telling people that can not handle being a good role model. If you're stuck with an equation, but your teacher is talking to another student. What should you do? First you should wait for their conversation to finish and then you may ask your teacher for help. Treat others as you wanted to be treated! That is another way to be a good role model!

What I was trying to tell you is that a role model is somebody you would look up to forever. if you didn’t understand what I was trying to say then maybe read one more time to get the idea. And there you have it if you have followed my steps on how to become a good role model, then maybe one day you will be recognised a one.

Inspiration Talk!

This Morning we had a special visitor, that came to talk to us about Aspiration, Inspiration and Motivation. His name is Mr Patterson, Mr Patterson was talking to the year 7 & 8 block about what you would like to achieve in the future. He also was talking about a touching story about a 11 year old that goes to Manurewa intermediate.

The First he talked to us student about a formula which was A + I = M, also known as Aspiration, Inspiration which equals Motivation. After we had  figured the three point's we asked us what those mean. As he asked us kids I was thinking that I would like to be a Police officer but my plan b, is to be a nurse, And I know that it would take a lot longer to study about it but that is something I would like to become. 

Mr Patterson also talked about a touching story about a 11 year old boy giving his Lunch money to a homeless man. His name is Willy. His story was about how we saw a man sitting down crying, so we gave his lunch money and asked the man why was he crying. The reason why the man was crying was because he got kicked out of his house, His marriage is no longer happening and he has no job. But then things started changing for that man, because he got a job and also a rental house for him to live in. Willy is a brave boy, he isn't those kids who see him crying and just walks past that person, no Willy gave his lunch money without anybody knowing.

Then Mr Patterson just got back from Australia, he was meant to come on Monday but then he got a notification saying that his flight has got cancelled. As he was waiting in the line, as well as 100 other people he saw a young couple with three kids under 5 years old, and the first thing that came to his mind was that he was going to talk to that family and ask if they are okay. But he didn't just do that he also told that family to follow Mr Patterson to the front and they could be in front of Mr Patterson. And so He wasn't being a taker, but he was being a giver.

One thing that I have learnt was that instead of thinking about yourself, you should think about other as well. And the other thing I have learnt in life is that you should never walk past a homeless person, you should ask them if they a alright .

Labour Day!

Labour day was first celebrated on the 28th of october 1890. New Zealand was one of the first countries to celebrate Labour day. Labour day is a day where people take a day off work. I will be talking to you about why we celebrate Labour day in New Zealand.

back in the days People didn’t get the choice of working less than 10 hours. Sadly some people even worked for 18 hours. Nowadays people around the world celebrate working less than 10 or even 12 hours. That is every year on the 4th of October.

Samuel Parnell is a man who stood up for his work hours to be shorter. Samuel Parnell decided that he would only get a new job as a carpenter,only if he would work for 8 hours a day. Samuel would always go to court to explain why we should work for only 8 hours straight. Because of Samuel Parnell we should all be thankful that we get to have a day off from work, and also from School.

it was fair that New Zealanders was the first to have the rights of claiming the right to have an 8 hour per day. Wellington judges decided for everyone in Aotearoa also known as New Zealand and other countries to have the opportunities to be able to work 8 hours.

And that is why we celebrate Labour day every year. Now you know why labour is always celebrated in New Zealand. What do you think about Labour? After reading all my reasons why then why not just Celebrate it!

Mr Jacobson's talent

As part of this terms topic "musical madness" Mr Jacobson showed us some amazing instruments that we didn't even know existed. He talked to us about the different wind instruments from around the world, and when they were invented. 

Image result for shofarMy Favourite Instrument that Mr Jacobson showed us was the Shofar. They are made by cutting off the horns of rams horns. As he blowed the Shofar it made a deep sound that is used to communicate to people that a far away from you. 

Niuean Language week

We don't have that much Niuean students at Pt England School, but it's so cool to see how many other students who would like to be a Niuean and would like to participate in the Niuean performance. There are 14 villages in Niue, and the capital city of Niue is Alofi. I haven't been to Niue, but I hear so many things about how Niue is such a Beautiful place to visit. 

This Morning we had our assembly, and the Niuean students has an amazing outfit, and there performances we Beautiful. They didn't just start with a dance, but they some kids to who said a short speech about themselves and what village they come from. We always celebrate Niuean Language Week, but I got to say that this year has been my favourite Niuean Language week I've seen!

Immersion Assembly


Our theme for this term is Musical Madness, but I didn’t know what that meant. But as I sat down on the chair I knew that I was ready to start term 3. I was excited to see what every team was going to focus on for this term. And so we started our immersion assembly, each team had to either make a movie or do a play to show what their team will be focusing on for this term.

Most Informative?
Every team gave us informations about what they are focusing on, but the Most Informative for me what Team 5 because They had more informations about what they will be focusing on for this term. Throughout the whole item they explained how they were feeling. Team 5’s focus was How do composers use music to evoke an emotional response in an audience.

Most Entertaining?
I reckon Team 3 was the most entertaining for me. Team 3 had caught my eyes because they had a conversations using songs to express how they feel about that person. They didn’t show them having a conversations but they also showed their emotions and how they felt. All the movies made me laugh but throughout the whole item Team 3 had caught my eyes, as I was watching the movie.

What do you want to find out more about?

I want to find out what songs make me feel happy, sad and also calm. By the end of the term I would like to express my feelings with the songs I listened to and why does it?

The End of term 3!!!

It’s the last day of term 3! This term has gone to fast, there is only One more term until it’s Christmas! I am really sad to see the year end so fast, I am going to miss all my friends, and also teachers. But it's alright because they is only one more term, and once it hits term 4 I am going to spend every moment's with my year 8's friends.

This Morning we had our final assembly for term 3. It was a really long assembly but I really enjoyed the assembly with some special things happening, in the morning. As Soon as assembly started I really exit iced to see my friends going up to the stage to celebrate the win of coming first for the sevens Tournament. I was really proud of the Sevens teams, because they had practise everyday and all the practises was payed off.

After they got their medals and we all clapped for them, They then sang their song that they have been practising while they were at Tauranga. Then the Moment I have been waiting for, Their Haka. I was nearly in tears, while they were doing their aka. It was a emotional assembly, but it was all worth the practise, for the sevens.

If the girls went Tauranga do you think we would've came first as well? I am really proud of my friends . This is going to be the last post for this term.

Multiplication Pyramid week 8 & 9



Farming Flounder with kauri flats




Who else likes to eat flounders? I’m not a fan of eating flounders, but I know my family loves to eat flounders. This morning the whole pt england school walked to riverside ave to catch some Flounders. And yes we are not eating it but we are to farm the flounders. We are in partnership with Kauri flats.


Today in the morning all of the students from Pt England School all walked to riverside ave to catch Flounders. Why? So that when they grow we could put them back in the ocean. That because back in the days we had a lot of flounders, but nowadays we are getting less flounders then we had back in the days. We have caught over 20 flounders, which is pretty awesome!


When we got to our destination, Judah started off with a Karakia (Prayer), we then sang a Himene (Hymn), to bless the students and teachers catching flounders. We then shouted some words to entertain the flounder team. They will be placed in a special flounder tank where we could keep them safe and will take care of them until they grow, and then we will put them back where they belong.

We are looking forward to seeing them grow, we would also like to congratulate the flounder team.

Aim's ll 7's Boys come back with a gold medal

My Journey to the Manaiakalani

Every year Pt England School takes part in the film festival, that is run by Manaiakalani. Today I will be talking to you about my experience with the film festival this year. Every class from Pt England School has to come up with a movie that is only 3 minutes long, and I got to say that filming a movie that has to be 3 minutes long is pretty hard to film. 

Image result for ManaiakalaniFilming a movie is challenging because sometimes you have to control your laugh and sometimes when it comes to a serious scene you have to act like your angry or even sad. Trying not to laugh is one of the things I find difficult, because looking at the person right in front of you will just make you laugh out of no where. Whenever I look at someone and I am filming I also tend to laugh. 

Trying to learn your lines is really hard. For an example when your an Main characters and you have a lot of things to say and you are always in every scene is pretty hard to remember. If I had to be a main character I would rather practise every day until I remember all my lines. that What I would do!!

Cross Country Highlight

After all those trainings, It’s the event we’ve been waiting for. Yes that’s right last friday we had our fun run. Team 5 has been training everyday for nearly two months, to achieve our personal best. The day before the cross country we have been running everyday, even when it was raining.

There were four house colours, Hikianalia, Hine Moana, te Aurere and last but not least Hokule'a. My House colour was Hokule'a. Not to get cocky but I have a chance that we may come first. I put on my P.E top, and that was when I knew I was going to run two whole laps. As I got out of my classroom All I could see was bright colours filled on the netball court. It was getting close to the year 7 girl’s, and that was when I started to get butterflies.

It was my turn to run. I got up and my leg started shaking, I started to get butterflies and couldn’t stop talking about how nervous I was to run. As we all stood in a line I started to panic, and was almost about to throw up. He said “Set”, my leg started to shake even more, then he said go I started to sprint. To be honest my plan was to sprint all the way to the black gate then stop. I know that most of yous would’ve did the same as well.

It was so Awesome to see all the whanau, the parent and also seeing the spark helpers to come and support our cross country. As I was running all I could see was teachers and helpers supporting every student to “Never Give up”. As they said told me to never give up I tried to keep running till I get to the finish line. I nearly got to the finish line, So I kept running until I finish the race. I was so proud of myself because I completed the race, and that was one of the things I tried to do, from the start.

So there you have, this was the highlight of PES Cross country. Here is a advice about not wagging school just because you either have cross country or athletics. Here is another tip for you, and that is to NEVER GIVE UP!

Speech competition

Have you ever said a speech in front of 100 students? I will be sharing to you about what happened on friday. Every class from team 5 had to pick the top 3 students to come up and present their speech in front of all of us. There was 15 kids presenting their speech to us, we also had the Pavilion joining us. I will also tell you who I thought was the most appealing, and the most entertaining. Some of them were emotional and entertaining.


The most appealing speech was Amelia. Her topic was about Her Grandma being happy about seeing her Grandkids. The reason why I thought that Amelia was the most appealing was because she talked about her Nana but the thing that Amelia didn’t get was why she was happy about cleaning dirty toilets. The reason why Amelia’s grandma was happy all the time, was because she was happy to see grandkids everyday. As she delivered her speech, it spoke to me because she gave the audience clear point about not knowing that her nana was not only happy to clean classrooms but happy to always see her kids. So in my mind I thought that maybe I would’ve talked about my grandparents as well.


The most entertaining for me was president Muba. His topic was about if I were a president for a day. He talked about if he was a president for a day, the first thing he would do, would to provide a shelter for the homeless people. The second thing he would do, would to Take the pollution level down as well as bill depts. And the last thing he would do is to make the world a better place. The reason why I thought President muba was entertaining was because he would provide a shelter for the homeless people, and the first thing that came to my mind was that he would be an awesome president one day. He’s actually funny as well, he even knows how to make people laugh and that is one of the things I like to do as well. Is to make people happy and also make them laugh as well.

So there you have it, They were the two students who I thought was Most appealing and the Most entertaining to me. I hope that my opinions was clear to you, and maybe you would like to visit their blog to see more about their speech.

Speech: Should Pt England school have a college

   Should Pt England School have a college?

so my topic for today is Should Pt England School have a college?

There are many reason’s why I think Pt England School should have a college. I will be talking to you about my reasons of why Pt England school should have a college! You are probably wondering why Pt England School doesn’t have a college? Well I have 3 important points to show you that we should have a college?

I personally think that in the future we should have a college. Why?

My first reason is because students who are heading off, don’t need to apply for a scholarship to other colleges. They can just stay here, and wouldn’t worry about meeting new teachers. They can just get along with teachers that they already know. See no big deal! If I had to pick what college I would go to, I would most likely attend this college.

The guardians of the galaxy

Imagine if you were fighting aliens, what would you do? Well maybe you might know what our topic for this term is? The Guardians of the galaxy? We are learning about the Sun and Moon, and how you would survive on a different planet.
Team 1’s focus for this term is about Solar system. Their topic is based on how life could be without kids. All six teachers from team 1 made a movie about how you could see the sun and also the earth. But I gotta say that the movies we have been watching, has been one of the entertaining and creative movies we’ve seen. Team 2 are focusing on the Sun and Moon. Their focus is all based on how the Sun and the moon changes over night. So they will be talking about how the sun changes to the moon.

Furthermore Team 3 are learning about, Time season in space and in earth. I am really looking forward to what their team are about to show the whole school what they have been learning about, for this whole term. Team 4’s is about the Planet earth 2.0. This is the video that made me understand what they are learning. And last but not least, the amazing team, Team 5. Our focus is based on what Impact does the moon have on earth? All five teachers from team 5 did a live show. Mrs Judd is a wonderful singer.

Which was the most informative? The most informative focus was Team 4’s because it gave me more information about what they are learning about. And I am really looking forward to seeing what they are going to create for this term. Who was the most entertaining? The team that was the most entertaining was Team 5 because all five teachers were drumming, playing the guitar and the piano and also Singing. What are you looking forward to finding out about this term? I am looking forward to seeing what the whole school is about to create and show how creative they could be.

technofreeze project

This is just another update about my group’s project. If you don’t know what my group and I are designing, well we are designing a basketball shelter. It was a bit challenging for me and my group because, we first had to think about where the shelter would start from, and where would it stop. But the most challenging one, was to figure out how many pole’s we need to make the shelter still.
