We concluded that the paths taken can change for many reasons - but we can stick to the right ones through making the best choice possible. Everyday is an opportunity to pick out the path to success. Which path will you take...pick a path!

Animation is one of the most fascinating things in the world, but how did it start. Recently we have learnt, made and tested one of the tools used to start Animation, the famous Zoetrope. We even got to use a Zoetrope with the help of three men Ali, Maka and Nils.
To start off we watched a slideshow produced by the crew (Ali, Maka ,Nils). It showed things like the first ever moving picture and silhouettes. We had to begin simple, which was finding the middle of two symmetrical lines. It sounds simple but as we finished one after another, the lines got more curvy and curvier. This was practise for what was planned ahead.
As the workshop went on, we were introduced to the Zoetrope. We were shown an example first, then we had the opportunity to animate a jelly fish using a Zoetrope. It was so AWESOME! Even better than a animated movie itself. I was blown away.
In the end I thought how could this day get any better.
We were all rewarded with a our very own Zoetrope, that was also an awesome opportunity.

Being cyber smart is something we are all striving for in this day and age of technology. Taking good care of yourself and your reputation online is a vital part of being successful. Be careful with all that you post online. Think - how do you want to advertise yourself? This movie was independently created by a small group of year 8 girls from Room 21. Thanks to Toreka, Selena, Thora and Teari, awesome work girls!

It's the final day of camp, we're at our local pool Swimarama - the Warriors arrive to train at the pools. None of the children knew this was going to happen so it was a huge treat for the campers. This is how we typically wind up our 3 day camp where tents are pitched on our very own school fields and all events and activities are local. A day to relax at the pools after all the hard work over the previous two days.
Thanks to our parents, teachers, helpers and the Warriors for making this such a memorable camp for the year 7 and 8 students of Pt England School. Well done to Joshua and Kayde, on the spot reporters for PENN (Pt England New Network)
Go the Warriors!

Many parents whose children have movied on this year happily shared memories of the years their children shared at Pt England. For some it was their last child to travel through the school making it even more special.
Here's a movie showing you items that our year 8's taught themselves. We will also post our closing school song.
You can look forward to posts from our new extension classes soon.
