Team 3 Visits the Stardome

This past Wednesday, the year 3 and 4 students from Team 3 spent the day at Auckland's Stardome.  We had so much fun exploring and learning at the Stardome before watching the very cool Planetarium movie. We also had a time period to hang out outside and have some kai before playing on the amazing playground, which included a flying fox!

Here is a short video highlighting some of the fun we had on our trip that we played during our school newscast PENN.  Enjoy!

The NED Show

We were very blessed to have a very cool assembly this week called "The NED Show.'  Ned reminds us all that there is a champion inside everyone.

NED reminds us all to:
1. Never give up
2. Encourage others
3. Do your best

Not only did we get to hear all about what NED stands for, but we were also able to see some pretty cool yo-yo tricks.  Students were even given a chance to purchase their very own NED yo-yo to practice their own tricks.

Cook Island Language Week

As part of Cook Island Language Week, we had an amazing group of students perform during our school assembly today.  It is always exciting to see our Pt. England students sharing aspects of their cultures with others. In the Pav, we were mostly proud of our sweet Lydia not only for performing beautifully, but also for being brave enough to speak in one of the Cook Island languages to open their performance. However, both Mr Moran and Mrs. Moala had a great time dancing up on stage when they were selected to be part of the "Around the World" dance at the end of the performance.
