Musical Madness


Welcome to Term 4! Inez 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.

Blog of the Week: Sabrina - Team 5 - Speech Contest

Sabrina shares her thoughts below on the Speech Contest finals for our Year 7 and 8 students last week. Feel free to read more of her posts here.

On Friday Team 5 and Team 3 came together and there was 15 students that came and shared there speech to everyone and the person that said her speech was Amelia and her speech was about her nana and her mother and Amelia Nana was the cleaner at a school in. Pakuranga and it is called Riverina and her nana always smile at Amelia when she sees her.Also Amelia told us that her nana had passed way and my favorite speech was Muba
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. it was a great time i enjoyed it

GOOGLE Student Summit 2017

Today the Year 7 & 8 Extension group went to Ormiston Junior College for the GEGNZ Student Summit 2017. We went arrived in two groups which were P.E.N.N Team and The Scratch Team. Registration was the first place we went and were handed lanyards to put on.
( PS: I was apart of the PENN Team)

The GEGNZ Student Summit was attended by over 400 students from : Ormiston Primary, Ormiston College, Tamaki College, Stonefields School, Bucklands Beach School and many other schools. We went to many presentations and workshops where taught different things from different schools.

The P.E.N.N Team was the first to go back after the introduction in the Auditorium. Two groups of schools came to our Presentation were Holy Cross and Ormiston Primary School. After presenting, We let the school make their own NewsTo be honest when we were trying to pick workshops to go to, it was tough because most of the workshops required ipads which didn't have.

To Reflect upon the day, I have to say it was pretty fascinating seeing how technology has improved and has become part of our daily lives. What I learned from the trip to GEGNZ was how to use a program called Teleorgami. It's a app where you can record yourself saying something, and it has a avatar replaying
