P.E.S Tofa Soi Fua.

Hi my name is Kitiona and  I'm a year 8 student at Pt England school and will attending college next year. What I will be missing about this school next year is going to be Ms Tito because she lectures me sometimes when I'm silly.   I will also be missing my friends because we always make funny jokes and play touch on the field.  The thing I will miss the most about this school is the teachers because they've helped me with my learning and especially my attitude.

My best friends this year will have to be Tana and Lave because they always make me laugh when we play together.   The sad thing is that we have to go off to different school's and also study new things that we want to do. What I will be missing about Tana and Lave is their funny jokes and also our games we always play like hand ball, touch and walking around the school.

I would like to say a big farewell to all the teachers, Principal and staff.  I will miss you all when I leave.  I would also like to say thank you to all the teachers that help with my learning and telling me how funny I was and also telling me that my attitude can be poor and sometimes my attitude can be good. So teachers thank you.

What I want for next year is a good attitude and also make new friends and meet new teachers in college.   Next year I want to work on showing respect to the people around me and also want to prove to people that I can be a good kid.

I have enjoyed my time here at Pt England School and I will miss everyone .

Unforgettable Netbook Moments

Having a netbook that connected to the internet made my learning better because I can search down things that I didn't know about,for example I get stuck with my 8x table and I went on the net and found out the easy way to learn 8x table.

What I had discover and learnt by my self is finding out recipes of how to make a chocolate mud cake. Our class gets work sheets that we have to try finding the answer to online, lets say that for example I didn't know my 5x then I looked on line and there it was.

The special thing that my teacher taught me was being a leader for the class and also out of school, my teacher also taught me that having a bad attitude towards other is very bad.

I have learn't that disrespecting other says bad thing about me.

My friend has taught me to share my work with my teacher and also how to chat with my friend when I need help with something.

I have helped other kids with their work when they need help and also telling them not to play game during class time.

I think that I have grown in participating with others what I haven't grown in is managing yourself and thinking

Yr8 Camp.

Recently we went to keswick christian camp in Rotorua for our year eight camp, when we were getting ready to leave school Mr Burt was talking to us about having the best attitude and acting the pt england way. As we were leaving on the bus everyone was waving out to the teachers out the window and getting ready for a long drive.

When we were driving along the way to Rotorua we stop at a park so that we can have lunch and also have a little bit of fresh air,so we got back into our sets and get ready for another long ride before we get to keswick christian camp.

When we got to the campsite we all jump out of the bus with excitement and enthusiasm just wanting to go throw our stuff into our cabins and to try out our beds. In our Cabins there were five to six people in one cabin. As we all thought that we were just stay in our cabins Mrs Nua blew the whistle to tell us that we will all be going on a never bush walk.     

During our camp we did a lot sightseeing around Rotorua like going to see amazing things like
watching the geyser exploded into smoke. As we were still sightseeing we shot off to the campsite to unload our stuff then we jump back into the bus to go the pools.

on the last day we went for a ride on the luge and on the sky lines when we got in the skylines it was like we were floating in air. When we were at the top of the mountain we went to the luge for a hard ride down. As we were going down the hill everybody was nearly crashing in to the side of the barrier. Then when we finished we headed back to school.

Nelson Mandela Story About Hi Life.

Nelson Mandela was born on july 18 1918 he grew up in a small village called Rolihlahla Mandela at Mvezo in the Transkei,his parents were Nosekeni Fanny and Gadla Hephakanyiswa. Nelson Mandela had 9 siblings.

Rolihlahla Mandela  went to a local Mission school in his Home village Mvenao,When he received and educations to Clarkebury to boarding school Institute for his Junior Certificate. Then he went to a secondary school which was called Wesleyan.  When Rolihlahla Mandela was still in school he came a long to a teacher who called him Nelson because the teach couldn't pronounce his name properly.

In 1962 Mandela was arrested and charged with high treason along with his collaborators. The Rivonia Trial, as it came to be known would turn Mandela into a symbol of the struggle against apartheid.

In 1990 nelson mandela was finally released from jail, But he still thought against the white to get equal rights. He was Elected by Parliament as the  first president of a democratic in South Africa. Then he launched his autobiography long walk to freedom.

What i learnt from nelson mandela was to treat people respectfully weather they are the same colour as you or not. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
