Inspire me tour

Covenant Events - Brings 'INSPIRE TOUR' to Point England!

It was an awesome time for all our year 7 and 8 students.  Learning valuable lessons for life right now and into the future!

Here are some gems from the show:
How can we achieve the goals we set ourselves?  Have you set yourself a goal?  Do it!
ASK - don't be afraid to ask for help.  It's the best thing to do when you're stuck.   People WANT to help you!   BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - having the confidence to give things a go is another key to achieving our goals!

Through play, song and dance Maio and Levi entertained and taught us.  Likely a message we've heard from our own families, teachers and friends.   However it's always good to hear again.  Maybe for some of us we haven't had it said enough.

Our boys had the privilege of spending some up front - close and personal time with these two talented young men.  They got to have some real talk about being Pasifika, Maori and Kiwi boys who CAN achieve what they want to.

Thank you  Covenant Events - Levi and Maio for this wonderful experience.   No doubt other Manaiakalani schools will be keen to have you visit them too!

Malo lava le faasoa ma taumafai auā fanau a le Pasifika ma Aotearoa.

How to be a good role model - Htet htet

Good role models are everywhere around us, they usually help us with our work. We can talk to them about stuff that we are uncomfortable with and we can take notes and lessons from them about how to be a good role model.

The 1st way to be a good role model is to behave and do appropriate things in front of kids. If you do any rude or cheeky stuff in front of them, they’ll just copy you. That means you’re not being a good role model.

The 2nd way to be a good role model is to respect others and treat them the way you want to be treated. If you treat them with no respect then they will treat you the same way you treated them.

To wrap it off, you make sure that the words that come out of your mouth are kind and appropriate. If you say kind and appropriate stuff then your mind will start becoming positive.

For conclusion, I think that we just need to behave and do appropriate stuff in front of kids. Reason being is because, they are the future of our next generation and what they learn from us now, they’ll teach and show to those around them.

For our first week of school we started off with a explanation writing.

Flounder Catching

                                                     Catching flounder:                                               
This morning 12 of our Pt England student went out to Pt England beach to catch some baby flounder. We walk down and singed a waiata to the students who were catching the flounder.  After they catch some flounder the flounder will come back and we will look after them until they grow up. They used a really big net to catch the flounder. We put the flounder into a big water tank with sand at the bottom so the flounder won't die. thanks to Kauri Flats School this wouldn't of happend to Pt England School.

Week 9 Learning Rap

In team 5, Mr Wiseman made a rap for the team to help motivate us for the week. Everyday we do the rap class by class and get points. To get the points for your class you had to do the rap loud enough and participate. The rap goes like this:

It's week nine be on time
Let's do our work when we're online
Be positive, don't cry and whine
Lead the way it's time to shine.
