Thank you GI whanau for your support.

Today our community came out in force to support our car boot and garage sale. Our stall owners were up bright and early to set up and be ready for crowds that came through our school hall today.

It was a fantastic day where many bargains were made, a lot of yummy food, gorgeous pre-loved were sold clothing and more! There was even a chocolate fountain that was a huge hit with all kids who came through.

Thanks to Mrs Flavelle our head organiser, the wonderful families who ran stalls and all who came through today and bought so generously. May many good things come to you and your whanau. Fa'afetai lava le alofa.

Being Cyber Smart

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!

Pt England Ambassadors meet teachers of the future

Our year 6 ambassadors presented today to a group of teacher trainees at MIT, Manukau Institute of Technology. They are actually in their third year of training - so they are very near graduating.

This was a great opportunity for our students to share what we do at school as well as educate the trainee teachers of what school is really like for students today. Our year 5 and 6 extension class have put together short movies where our year 5 students interviewed the 6 ambassadors who presented at MIT today.

Warriors on Camp...

"This is the best last day of camp ever!!" Many excited year 7 and 8 students of Pt England School couldn't help but say this as they looked on to one of their favourite NRL teams.

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!
