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!
