Will.i.Am from the Black Eyed Peas today visited our school. He is a recording artist, song writer, performer, entertainer, philanthropist and more. He came with a big group of people that included the media, friends and family. Hallensteins clothing company helped to bring him to our school. Will presented us today with a cheque of $100,000 for Manaiakalani. That's right he gifted this to us all! He shared many important messages with us. We've included a couple of these in our movie here. We've captured his korero with us and will post more soon. Be sure to check the individual blogs of PES students to read about this wonderful experience.
Our school usually hosts many visitors during the year. Yesterday we received a visit from the honourable Paula Bennett, Minister of Social Development. She briefly visited our class with Mr and Mrs Burt and Pat Sneddon. We were later told that she enjoyed being in our class. She was interested in what we were doing and how we used our netbooks for our learning. (3rd April 2013) Room 21 Pt England School. Thank you for visiting us Paula Bennett. We hope that what we shared with you will help you in the important role you have for Aotearoa.
