Market Day!



Before we even had our market day, I was very very nervous because we haven't
finished all of our final products. It was the very last minute until all the tables had to
get set up, so I zoomed like cheetah to my classroom and started painting all of our cooling fans. My partner Casey saved the day by baking muffins and sticking Lot's of lollie worms on them, He brought it to my table and we started decorating them.

Here is a movie on what happened at our market day,

I HOPE YOU ENJOY!!

Ikale Tahi!

My favourite team, the 2nd best rugby team in the world are warming up, and are getting ready to get smashed by the winners of the 2011 rugby world cup team ''The All Blacks''.
Their Forwards Line up is amazing,
They have experience Tongan rugby players who had contracts signed from around Europe.
The back line formation is pretty fascinating, players like Taniela Moa and the super 15 star Fetu'u Vainikolo.

Surf Life Saving Ed!


On Friday we had the privilege of being invited to Mairangi Bay for the Surf Life Saving Ed.
We had an amazing time, We were getting tips of how to survive, learning how to save people but the most important thing we learnt was rips and tides. I was cruising with my boogie board on the big huge waves.
These 10 rules we learnt from the life guards are to keep you safe in the water:

1. SWIM BETWEEN THE FLAGS!
2. HAVE AN ADULT WATCH OVER YOU.
3. LISTEN TO THE ADVICE FROM SURF LIFEGUARDS.
4. NEVER SWIM OR SURF ALONE.
5. IF IN DOUBT STAY OUT.
6. BE SUNSMART.
7. LEARN TO RECOGNISE RIP CURRENTS.
8. ALWAYS USE THE CORRECT AND SAFE EQUIPMENT.
9. NEVER SWIM WHEN TIRED OR COLD.
10 AND FINALLY CONSIDER OTHER SURF USERS.

Four Nations Fan Day!


Wow Rugby League stars every where!
Our school was invited along with others to go to the 'Rugby League Four Nations Fan Day'.
I got to meet lots of stars like Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Billy Slater and even got a chance to have a photo with the legendary Darren Lockyer.
Here are 2 links to the website that shows movies of our amazing time at Eden Park.

Experiencing Rotorua!

It was a chili morning and we were cruising on a long trip to Rotorua. I went with the Smokefree-Pacifica-Beats national champions Babylon Rhythm. During our trip we saw the beautiful farms in Matamata and we enjoyed the amazing sites of the beautiful landscapes and forest’s.

It was very long journey. When I saw the Whare, We were told that we could stay in any room so I rushed straight in and looked for the best room possible.

At Ten o’ clock in the morning, I went to the stadium with the boys and had a sound check before smoke-free-pasifica beats nationals.

After the sound check, we were all sweaty, smelly and exhausted. So we decided to go for a swim just next-door to our whare. I jumped in like a dolphin but swam like a dog because the water was so cold, I was freesing.

After the nationals finished, the next day was our final day to experience the whole of Rotorua. First up we headed past the Maori villages and ewwwwwwwwwwww it was smelly, but the carvings at the marae were amazing. Next we went to the museum and looked at some of it’s history. Our final stop was at the geyser it was the biggest, bubbliest, hottest water flow I’ve ever seen.

We said our prayers to go home safely and said our goodbyes to the owner of the house. We headed back to our hometown, Auckland.

I really enjoyed experiencing my time at Rotorua, I can’t wait until I go back!!

Touch Rugby


It was a very big day for me, My very first intermediate touch tournament.
We went to Dunkirk Reserve, Our very first game was against a pretty good team
which was Panmure District school. We beat them 6-0, Our defense was amazing along with our attack. We beat teams like Parnell, Stan Hope and Kohimarama!
We won all our games, but then we had to play our neighbours and our rivals Tamaki Intermediate, We had a draw which was 4 all. There were no semi finals or finals, It was just a round robin match so we came second, and Tamaki Intermediate came first by just one point.

Babylon Rhythm now known as ‘Babylon Riddim’ is my favourite Reggae band. The lead singers name is Charlie “Marley”, and the two vocalist names are Douglas and Mau. Their past achievement was they won the Smokefree Pacifica Beats.
Their new single ‘Reggae is my heart’ has made a huge impact on other reggae bands who wants to be a professional band.
Babylon Riddim reminds me of my favourite singer Bob Marley.

Immersion Assembly


Every term our whole school will have a topic to study and find facts about. At the beginning of each term, our school runs an Immersion Assembly.

If you’re wondering what on earth is an Immersion assembly, it is when the staff members or the teachers dress up  and present an act to us.   Part of their act will always have to be about the topic we are learning about.

One of my favourite Immersion assemblies was when our topic was ‘Food Glorious Food’. When everyone sat down, people who sat up straight, Received  a Sausage with bread or a piece of B.B.Q chicken on a plate.  I could still remember Ms Garden one of our teachers at our school giving me lots of ‘Corn Chips’ with her famous ‘Guacamole’ during assembly.

Pt England is the only school I know that has the best Immersion Assembly’s.

Our Hard Rugby Game.

We had a very tough rugby game against St Marys. They were a
hard team to beat, their defence was very hard to break. But the best thing
that I was impressed with, was our defence, because whenever they ran hard on
us boys, we would go straight to their legs and tackle hard. Even though they were bigger than us
and they scored six tries, we still used our school korero "CHAMPIONS NEVER GIVE UP".

Hopefully next year we'll be harder and stronger than any other intermediate rugby team.

We had fun!!

On Friday my teacher Ms Tito took the top three students of
last term for afternoon tea.  Ms Tito took us to the beach
that looks across to the beautiful volcano,  Rangitoto Island.
The three students were Gabrielle, April and I.  The reason
Ms Tito took Gabrielle was that she was The student of
the term.  Me,  It was because I was Beautiful, Nah It was
because I was the Basic Facts Champion.   The reason
April went with us was because her and the student of the term
Gabrielle were the first people in our class room19 to make a podcast.

At St Heliers beach we ate hotdogs, Burgers and Hot chips.
Here's a movie I made from the flip video.
