Blog of the Week: BEN The Guest Speaker

this morning we had a guest speaker Mr Patterson he came to talk to us about our future he asked a couple of people what is there dream job he pointed at me and I said game designer. after he asked everyone about there dream job he asked us to figure out a little math question it was about our motivation he told us to figure out what the letters stood for  it was motivation , inspiration , aspiration, it stood for aim to aim for our goals.


he told us two story's the first story was about Mr Patterson at the airport in Australia his flight was cancelled so air New Zealand had to book a hotel room for all the people who were suppose to be on the plane. when he went to  the line he saw these two young adults with three kids at the back of the line so he put them all in the front of the line everyone in the line didn't complain about it they just let it happen. 

for the second story he told us that an eleven year old boy named Uili gave his lunch and his lunch money to a homeless man for two weeks the homeless man almost lost everything his job his wife and his house. after the eleven year old boy gave all his lunch money and lunch some people helped him as well now the homeless man has a job a rental home and is happy. in return for helping the homeless man the homeless man went to his school and told the school about what he did so Uili was rewarded a golden certificate. 

In conclusion Mr Patterson gave us a lot to think about for our future and that it has challenges in the future when we get older but to go for our dream job and to help others out in need like give someone at school doesn't have lunch then give the lunch to the person who needs it. I look forward to the future because then ill be older ,taller and hopefully have my dream job about being a game designer

Blog of the Week: INEZ Explanation Writing - Regular Exercise




This week our blog of the week is from Inez who explains 'why regular exercise is important'.

Read her awesome piece of writing below and check out her blog to see more of her work.


Greetings, I will be explaining ‘Why is regular exercise important’. There will be three main points that I will focus on, in this piece of writing. Why we need to exercise, What happens if we don’t exercise, and How you can do regular exercises.


Firstly, Why do we need to exercise? It is important for everyone to exercise, because it will lower the risks of us having diseases. Also it’s unhealthy for our bodies to not get exercise. When you exercise it helps you sleep better. Exercising can also help those who struggle in life. It can also take your mind off things and make you feel better. It can sometimes be boring and tiring, but if you make it fun, you will enjoy it. When we exercise it reduces stress from our minds.


So, what happens if we don’t exercise? If you don’t exercise it can cause the immune system to weaken. It also makes it harder for our bodies to fight viruses, such as the flu and cold. You’re likely going to find yourself getting sick more often, if you do not exercise.


Finally, How can you do regular exercises? You can do your own exercises at home. There are awesome sites online that can help you exercise at home. Also if you sign up to a local gym, there are people, classes, and sessions, that can help you with your regular exercises.


In conclusion, regularly exercising can help make a difference in your life. But it’s all up to you if you want to exercise or not. I think it’s good for our bodies to get exercise. Even though I don’t really like exercising.

Musical Madness


Welcome to Term 4! Loseli is a Year 8 student and shares her impressions of the Term 4 Immersion Assembly at Pt England School. Check out the highlights on the video above!

Hello people, the is the start of a new term which is Term 4. The topic for this term is called Musical Madness!!!. Teachers from different teams have created their own skit or item during the school holidays to present to the students of Pt England for the last term of 2017. Each team did a very good job entertaining us with their awesome skits and singing. 

To start off this term we had an eye-opening performance by the remarkable senior management team and one astonishing teacher who are followed by Mr Burt, Mrs Nua, Mr Somerville, Mr Jacobson and Mr Wiseman (astonishing teacher). They were singing their new song Musical Madness Saves the Day. Each teacher had an instrument to play. Mr 

Burt was playing the guitar, Mrs Nua had her tambourine, Mr Somerville was rocking out his drums, Mr Jacobson playing with his trumpet and Mr Wiseman playing the bass. Together they made a wonderful band.

Team 1 teachers did a item when they were playing cards and listening to music. There focus for this term is listening to music and how it affects their emotions. Team 2 did an amazing performance of Miss Gaston singing "The Lion sleeps tonight". As she was singing other teachers came in with different instruments. Miss Peck was playing the castanet, Miss Tumahai was playing the xylophone and last was Miss Nalder playing the bongos. 

Teachers from Team 3 made a movie about songs in real life. They were also lip syncing to different types of songs as they were talking to each other. The teachers involved Mr Moran, Miss King, Miss Eadie and Miss Davis. They were singing different songs. Team 4 teachers made a little movie kind of like carpool karaoke but they were singing different songs in a car. Each of them had a turn driving while they were singing their hearts out!! The teachers are followed by Mr Somerville, Mr Goodwin, Miss Scanlan, Miss Parent, Miss West and Miss Buchanan. 


Last but not least was the wonderful Team 5 teachers who performed an excellent item. The group of teachers are Mr Wiseman, Mrs Ilaoa, Mrs Tele'a, Ms Tapuke and Whaea Kelly. They were acting as if they were a family and they also watched the movie Lion King for their family movie night. There was different music in the audio and whenever it changes their emotions change too. It was really funny and amazing.


My favourite was Team 4 and 3 and 5. They had wonderful movies and made me laugh the whole time. It is pretty sad for me because it is the last Immersion assembly before I go to college.
