We thought as a trip down memory lane for our community and school - we've dug out this interview. It has our students Sela and Tanielu in 2009 interviewing Prime Minister John Key at our local Ruapotaka Marae. We hope this serves a reminder also - to get out and cast your vote tomorrow - Saturday 20th September 2014. There is plenty of information regarding vision and policies for all parties online. Well done to Sela, Leoden, Cruz and Tanielu who interviewed and captured this for us back in 2009.

Vaiaso o le Gagana Sāmoa – Samoan Language Week: Sunday 25 – Saturday 31 May “Taofi mau i au measina: Hold fast to your treasures”. Minister of Pacific Island affairs - Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga, launched the Samoan Language week in Auckland at Pt England School. This was a wonderful occasion where we shared the celebration with our local Samoan language nest - Aoga a le Teuila, based at the Tamaki Pacific Islanders Presbyterian church. Tamaki College Samoan group were also part of the celebrations, ending our time together with a beautiful song all about the beauty of Samoa, it's way, language and youth. Malo faafetai lava mo lenei avanoa taua. Ia ola pea lo tatou gagana i totonu o tatou aiga, aoga, ekalesia ma nuu o loo tatou galulue ai.

This year marks 40 years of the 40 hour famine in NZ for World Vision. For us at Pt England it marks our 22nd years of participating in this event. Our school, whanau and community are very supportive of us and it's looking like we're going to make our goal of raising over $1,000! A special thank you to all our sponsors and the extra support we receive from world vision and their education sector. Looking forward to seeing how our funds support the children of Malawi.
