Year 8 Camp

Last week all of the year 8's went on camp! It was really fun. it was a great opportunity for others to step up and be leaders. we all learned that everyone is a leader in their own special way. Also, we talked about what we do and what we say. we also did some fun activities like... going on go karts, shooting air rifles, going on the rail way jiggers, riding BMX bikes, played paintball, had a ride on the flying fox and more awesome and cool activities. we had a cultural performance where each groups performed their items, and also we had 4 groups. Thames, Coromandel, Kaearanga and kauri. the campsite we went to was Kaearanga valley christian camp. we all had fun learning how to be leaders and having fun as a group. link to photos:  

prefects korero

This weeks korero is T.E.A.M. we chose this korero because we had people coming in and checking what we were doing and we all worked as a team and showed them the Pt England way. after the visitors left we got some good feedback and we were all so happy.

What is Latitude and longitude

Task description: 
today I learnt the differences between longitude and latitude. My explanation for longitude and latitude is right above and the coordinates for longitude and latitude for our school is on there too.  

compass descriptions

WALT: use compass directions to describe locations.

Task description:
This term our inquiry is "I like your Latitude". we learnt about the compass directions. we had to look at the map of New Zealand and compare different places using the compass directions. for example Bluff is the south of New Zealand and the south of the south island.

Just clean it

The prefects korero is... Just clean it. Since the holidays has just passed and everyone is trying to get back into the normal ways, we decided to do just clean it as our korero for the 1st week of term 2. Our school was a bit dirty and had a lot of chip packets lying around and we thought that just clean it was the best korero for this week.

My school Holidays!

What did i do in the holidays? Well in the holidays I mostly spent my holidays inside and on my Chromebook. But in the holidays I went to the Manukau cinemas and I watched the new avengers movie ( The Avengers: End game). But besides the movie I went to a holiday programme  in Mangere. The holiday programme was called Teine Toa it is a programme for girls in year 6-8 to learn about rugby and our samoan culture. It was a good opportunity for girls like me to learn more about rugby and be more confident in my culture. At the Teine toa programme we had people from the black ferns and the manusina girls team , teaching us about rugby. so my holidays were GREAT!
