Welcome To Pt England ( My World )

video This is a short but creative film that I made during 'Taonga Time'. It explains what Pt England does in our beautiful world. Some of the clips lists the Pt England Way... like : Being respectful to one in another, Taking charge of your duty and being courteous . Play Sensible Games, Playing in the Right Places and Bin it!

I think that the Pt England way is important to our school because we can be good role models to those NEW students at our school. Also because we want to keep our school clean, safe and happy!

I hope that you leave a comment and explain how much you liked it and how I could improve more! So sit back and enjoy the show!

I LOVE U..... Pacifika Festival


Spending time with Family and friends was the best time that I had spent down at Pacifika. Especially how we got to see different cultures on how well the performed! It was GREAT!

The best section out of it ALL was the " Samoan Section" it was really thrilling but at the same time incredible. I liked how they were dancing with this DANGEROUS knife , doing flips and everything with them. i just couldn't even speak..... I'm even speechless right NOW!!

But the best thing... was the food. Different types of food from different cultures. Like Hangi, Pork, Chop Soy and more Polynesian Cuisine . My favourite one was a cut Pineapple, the was half scrapped inside , with creamy, cold vanilla Ice-cream in it! It was DELICIOUS!

At the end of the day, with the sun still up striking at us and the sound of people finishing there songs had bring " The Pacifika" to an end! Even though i wished that it would've gone forever I knew that it had to end sometime!

This Inspires me!






The song ' Price Tag ' is hopefully known ALL around the world. This song had inspired me on how well and how she sang it. The best bit that I like was the first verse:

Seems like everybody's got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second,
Just stop, for a minute and
Smile:

I thought that it was really good. Especially on how the first sentence was describing on how everyone had a price! It was really good. I hope that you listen to the song and you leave a comment on how you think the song is good!

Year 7 & 8 Camp: Rockup, Dunker


My BEST highlight from camp was going on the Dunker. Even though there were butterflies in my stomach I still maneged to get through it. One by one they were throwing balls at the target, trying to get me out! Until SPLASH... I was finally in the cold water, that was making me shiver.

As I crawled out on the tub, I anxiously awaited to see who was next! BANG! Just like that he was gone! Disappearing into the water! With my hands wrapped around me like a blanket I suddenly looked around me feeling a cold breeze making me EVEN more cold! I knew that this was NOT going well.

At the end of the day going on the dunker was fun but I knew that I had to face some consequences, like getting a seriously COLD! But it was also FUN! Thank you Rock up for the awesome time.


P.S : I hope next time there would be NO push ups!

Science Down At Tamaki


‘ STOMP, STOMP’ Walking down to the science room, I waited eagerly to go in. Swishing my head from side to side I was already imaging me pouring hot liquid into a tube! “ Come on Ala” Sylvia said “ You’ve been standing out here for AGES...are you trying to get out of classes?” “ NO!” I replied.

As Mr Dewan handed out papers, I grabbed out my pencil ready to write down what experiments we should do! I was thinking about SO much that I didn’t even know which one to put down first!!
As I was moving around on my chair I heard Mr Dewan say that we were going to learn about Nutrition!!!

Hearing about this made me a bit sad! But I was glad that we were going to learn, what is good for us? And what is bad for our bodies?

Did you know that all foods are healthy? Even if they contain FAT, SUGAR and CARBOHYDRATES! All of them are healthy! Weather your eating KFC, Mac Donald's or Wendy's.

I can’t WAIT till the next day of our Science!



Equipment
Pegs
Hammer
Poles
Fly (Outer tent)
Base
Interior
Inner tent
INSTRUCTIONS (Be aware that this may not be suitable for some types of tents)During this process, make sure that you put spare pegs and poles in to the bag it came in.
1. First of all, you will need to unfold the base of the tent and lay it down. Ensure that the opening of the tent is facing the right way. Get a peg and place it through the eye lit. Hammer it in to the ground at a 45 degree angle AND so it is a bit hard to pull out. Repeat on every corner.

2. Once you have finished hammering the pegs, you will have to get the poles out and thread them through the inner tent. Once they reach the other side of the tent have a friend pull it out and put it in the second smaller eye lit. Repeat this process for the second pole.

3. Thirdly, you will need the fly (outer tent). Place it carefully on top of the inner tent. Make sure that the fly’s entrance matches the inner tents door.

4. You will find that there are little ropes attached to the fly. These are called Guy Ropes. You will need more pegs for this. Hammer them down as you did the same with the four corners. But you don’t need to secure it as tightly.

5. Once you have finished that, you may lie down in your perfectly pitched tent.

Statistics


In maths we because we created them on our very special NET BOOKS. While gathering the data about who likes chocolate bars was kind of hard for me. Since well...... I was imagining of the smooth chocolate in my mouth with nuts and sweet caramel!

I think I am really happy about making and completing this was GREAT! Even though I didn't eat a chocolate bar that is alright with me!

Studying about all the different ways that I could possibly display my graph to you having it as a pie was probably the best! Knowing and learning what statistics were all about was great! You know I never knew how much maths was fun and also important is the same way!

Thanks a lot to Google Apps for making this Graph happen for me!
