Touch was awesome in the weekends. In the weekends I was invited to a touch tournament that was held on at magere house course in the center of the field. My friend Wyatt had invited me to his family touch team. I had to be at Wyatt house at 7:30 to prepare everything to take. Wyatt Mum and sister had left the house at 7:45 to cook the sausages at the tournament to fun rise.

I had arrived at Wyatt's house at 7:35 to be taken with Wyatt and his Dad to leave going to the tournament. Wyatt had invited to other friends that I had known for two years playing rugby. We had arrived at the tournament looking for a parking close to the field. We had found a parking and had found the field where the tournament was.

I had meant Wyatt family that I was going to play with I had known one of them because they use to come to Pt England School. We had Played our first game we were sidestepping without being touch We were unstoppable. We had won our first game it was 30 minutes every game but we had enough subs to rotate around.

We had came to our other game that was when the fun had stop. We were losing our team had given up. We had lose 9-3 we were no unstoppable team now. We had one more game after that but after playing that team we played a team called the bulldogs. It was a close game 4-7 we never gave up but we were still happy. No matter if we lost we still had a lot of great fun.

Te Tuhi art gallery

Today class 2 and I had gone to Te Tuhi art gallery. Te Tuhi is located in Pakuranga and is an art gallery and a cafe. Te Tuhi was an amazing experience about Tapa and what's different about other kinds of Tapa. We had seen a Fijian Tapa and a Tongan Tapa. It was awesome learning about different arts and how art inspires artists. Most artists paintings are about their life style and whats about their family, interested, culture and home. Te Tuhi was a really great place for learning about paintings.

The tournament was supposed by genesis youth trust that had gave prize away. We had taken two touch teams to play against other great teams. We had to be at the school at eight o'clock if we weren't there before that time we would be left behind.

We had arrived at magere at nine o’clock we were one of the first schools to arrive at the tournament. After a while we had seen other teams arrive, There teams look really good and talented. We knew it wouldn't have been an easy tournament but we never gave up.

We had done a view exercises and fitness and runes to warm our body up for training. we had trained pretty good from my perspective point of view. We had trained on two mean move’s which were monster and b,k. They were two great moves that help our red team come second.

We had played four great teams that were very organised and forces. We had played our best as well as having fun at the same time.

Athletics Day

This was the best athletics every!!!
On Friday November 14th at (PES) Pt England School we had our school athletics day.
On Friday morning we had our normal school activity because we had waited for the objects for our athletics. The objects we had to wait for to dry up was mostly High jump, the grass and javelin. We had done a pray to have a sunny and wonderful day during athletics.

We had started athletics after morning tea and had walked out to the court for our teams. We had started off with discus and we were able to choose from non-competitive or competitive. I had gone to non-competitive because I had never been good at discus.
discus is a really hard sport for me because it hard to keep it strange.

Them we had moved to javelin which was the next sport for us. Javelin was another hard sport because I had trouble trying to keep it pointing. I wasn’t as bad because I mangent to keep 1st place for 5 minutes.  My friend Frankie had came 1st He was really great at javelin.

Our next course was hackie sack and tug o war. Hackie sack was one of the challenging course for me because it was hard to get into the hackie sack. We had mangent to win 3 rounds for our house. Then we move on to tug o war my house Te arw had won the championship because we had a lot of strength in our team.

We had moved on to the other sports which were a lot of excitement moments because we were enjoying challenging our friends and having fun. This was the best athletics that I had during being at Pt England School.

Yr 8 camp

On Tuesday The year 8’s and I went on our camp because it was their was our last year at Pt England school. On our camp we Had to leave school on Tuesday because it was labor weekend so we had Monday off school. We had loaded the bus with our logiech
Which took 20 minutes to do and had said our goodbyes to our parents.

After saying bye to our parents we had loaded the bus with kids. We had wave to our yr 7’s friends and had left the school. We had left the school at 8:30 and was heading towards Waipu. I had ask one of the teacher how long would the ride be. She had said it would be an hour and a half.

On our way to Waipu we had played game Games just involving our hands like shadow boxing, chopsticks and eye spy. I had sat next to Wyatt trying to sleep on the bus. But it was to hard to sleep when we have just woken up and gotten ready. In a hour and a half time we had arrive at Waipu beach for our walk.

Arriving at Waipu we were relieved to get out of the bus and have lunch. We didn’t know we were going to walk near the beach after mrs Squires told us we were walking on the bath that we had to cross the river to walk. The walk took us an hour because of all the mud there was on the track .

The yr 8s and I, feets were covered with mud which slowed us down and made our feet heavier. Walking throw the bush walk just seeing a path that leads out on to the the road with light. It was a great feeling making it to the end. We were all confused because it took a while for everyone else to come and we thought we took the wrong path.

Just rearsling that we had to walk down to the beach where the buses were. As I was walking down to the beach I had seen the nice clean beach with huge waves. Just wondering if I was allowed to swim but I had no togs or towel. I was badly wanting to swim so I did.

I had swim with my friend Wyatt and running in and out of the water on to the sand. After swimming Wyatt and I had sat on the bus with no t-shirt on just our towel. Setting in the bus with no t-shirt I was waiting to get the camp site. As I was waiting on the bus I was looking thru the window at the house’s and farms.

After arriving at the campsite we had a little tour around the camp talking about things we are allowed on or not allowed. We Had enjoyed ourselves jurying camp sleeping with our friends in our cabin. Just getting to the end of the camp feeling like we had just been their for a day.Near the end of the camp on the last night of the camp we had sang around the fire singing songs of famous artists. we had sang our heart out and having performance. Going to sleep we didn’t want to leave.

We had woken up early in the morning ready to have breakfast and pack our things to go to Waiwera. We pack our bags and clothes being the first one we had left the campsite after cleaning it spotlish. We took photos and said thanks to Mr Coop for cooking for us.
Just heading towards Waiwera we had to wait for an hour and a half.

Just getting to Waiwera we had smiles on our faces ready to swim. Just entering the pools no one was there including the superficial. We had gotten change quickly and went for a swim. After going on the slides and going in the hot pool it was time to leave. It felt like we were there for minutes. Leaving Waiwera and the end of our camp were tried and finish of fun. The yr 8s and I had enjoyed our camp because it was a great place. We didn't to leave the campsite but we had to let it go. It was the best camp I've had so far.

Why is it important to have enough sleep and to be on time?

At Pt England School (PES) the year 8s have to be at the school by 8:00am or either right on 8:30am. The reason why we come to school is to earn a good education. There are many reasons why we have to come school and to get enough sleep. First let’s start with why we need our sleep. Every night near 8:00pm we should go to sleep to wake up early the next morning ready for school work and getting to school early.

The reasons why we need our sleep is so our brain functions properly at school, home and at test’s. Today at (PES) the year 8s have a reading test but we take our reading test separate. About  75% of people in New Zealand sleep at the right time. However, about 35% don’t.

Students come to school so they can earn their place in the world and to have a family when they become adults. Most kids that go to school don’t realise the importance of being on time and being punctual. This will earn them a good education and  it might help them get the job they always wanted.
