Future Aspirations!

Amelia - Fashion Label
Andrew Patterson
Anthony S
Try your best
Never give up
Do good in life

Today at Pt England school, the teachers had exciting news for us. We had 4 inspiring and intelligent people come into the senior block to talk about  future aspirations. It was held in the street. The names of those 4 special people are Paula Fakalata, Amelia Unufe, Anthony Samuels and Andrew Patterson.

Speaking first was Anthony Samuels. He was talking about his life when he was involved in a kids show called ‘What Now’. It was a long time ago. And he was also talking about ‘To Miharo Hoki’, which means ‘You are amazing’. Anthony has also worked for many people. He has worked for Jason Gunn and Simon Barnett.

Next speaking was a guy by the name of Paula Fakalata. Paula is a presenter for a group called ‘Attitude’. He was talking to us about what he does and how we need to try our best in everything. He was also funny. He was talking to us about his funny stories to us and he was really entertaining.

Last to speak was Amelia Unufe. She was talking about fashion. She had a passion for fashion and clothes. Amelia really wants to do her own fashion label. Amelia is Tongan and she had an interest for clothes, fabric and sewing too. She plans to do her own business for clothes. She also had support from other people to encourage her to do better.

Overall we were glad how they felt and told us what they want to do in the future. Those 4 people came and they taught us about something in life. We have to make good decisions and make sure that we always try our best at everything.

Thank you letter: Shantna

Dear Shantna,

I would like to say a big thank you for your help. Without your help we wouldn't have gone on the trip. Thank you for giving up your time and supporting us on the trip.  A big thanks for your help on the trip to the Auckland Museum. You were really helpful and you were funny as well.

We were glad that you came on the trip because you were a very good parent helper. I was really hoping you were going to be in my group. And you were. I have never had a funny and independent parent in my life. You were really kind and its was a pleasure having you .

I really liked when we were all listening to you sometimes at the moment. As the girls going up and down and the boys wandering around I think that our group was pretty good with you. We were co operating as a team and helping each other when we were all stuck on something all because of you.

But anyways again thank you very much. You have been the best parent helper. So thank you and I hope you can come on another trip with us some time. Thanks for supporting us, we appreciate it.

Yours Sincerely
Nikita (Class 2)

My Weekends!

During the weekends i had so much fun on Sunday. As me and my family were getting up early in the morning. My dad decided that we should go out and have a bike ride at the BMX course.

So we quickly got up and got dressed and make sure that we had water incase we get thirsty. And then we starting riding our bikes while my mum and my 2 little brothers were in the pram walking.

As we arrived at the course, me and my brother went on the course and we were going to race. My dad shouted “ 1 2 3 GO!”.  Off we went on the track. We were going up hills that were dangerous and going down hills which was the fun part, and around a curved part on the track and then to the finish line.

My brother was catching up to me but i was too good for him to beat me. I was winning and he was at the back and he was angry at me because he was slow and i was faster. I won. I was so happy my family was cheering for me and i was so proud that i won.

We left the track and came back home and had something to eat. We had pizza with hot chips. We ate in our garage and played some pool. Pool is not the pools that you go to its a pool table. We ate and after we finished eating then we played some pool and we were listening to music.

I was playing against my dad in pool. I was so close to beating him but then i lost. My dad has been practising and we have so much fun. My dad does tricks to get his pool balls in, because he tries to be funny and he is. He makes us laugh and he dances crazy.

Overall it was fun and my dad was really entertaining. That had been the best day of my life with my family. I was so happy that we got to do something fun. I had a blast and so did my family. Next week on Sunday we are going to do it again!

In school you can achieve many things if you try. During school you get to learn and share things that you haven't learned before. As for students you need to work hard and never give up no matter what you are doing.

You have teachers that help you learn at school. Teachers are well educated and they really help you when you are stuck with something. The teachers at school help you, that’s just what they do.

Being at school is really important for you. Its good for your brain and it helps you learn more things and you can become intelligent. It also helps you to create good habits, such as, making sure that you are on task at school and you're doing the right thing at the right time in the right place.

You don't want to get in trouble for doing something that you have done wrong. Learn from your mistakes and be a role model at school. School really helps you and teachers co-operate with you to make sure that you make sure that you are on task and learn more instead of doing nothing and mucking around. That’s not what teachers are there for.

They are here for your learning. And they don't have to waste their time helping you if you don't want to learn anything. No one will be able to  help you at all. So be a role model and remember learn and you can achieve anything. Never give up.

What is fireworks you ask? Well fireworks are things that set up into the sky with a boom! When fireworks are lit up and into the sky there is a boom and different colours of different fireworks coming out of sticks and many more.

Fireworks a things that get lightened up and set off into the sky. Fireworks happens once a year on the 5th of November. Guy fawkes is for children to enjoy and have fun on this special occasion.

Every year some people decide if they want to do fireworks or not. Maybe your family would love to watch other fireworks light and set off if you're not doing fireworks.

If there was one fireworks I had to choose I probably choose black cat. Because it looks cool. And it has a lot of different things that you won’t expect. I love their neon lights because they are fun and cool. There are many more brands but I had to choose black cat.
