Samoan Language Week

Here on Team 5 we have really enjoyed celebrating Samoan Language Week this week. We  have been blessed to learn two new hymns that we sang regularly during the week.

Here are videos that we have created with the help of our lovely Samoan Fiafia group. The words are included in case you would like to sing along.

Welcome Back Level 2!

Today, we were able to welcome back some of our lovely students to Term 2 under Level 2 of the Covid-19 Lockdown. We enjoyed learning from home, but we are so excited to be learning at school again!  All of our classrooms are open, and we are excited to see more of our students join us everyday!

Spirit of Anzac

During our weekly school assembly, our prefects presented our weekly korero. This week, as we prepare to celebrate Anzac Day tomorrow from our isolated homes, our prefects reminded us that there are many ways we can still allow the spirit of Anzac Day to continue from within our isolated bubbles.

Check out this video of their presentation from our live feed:

Good Manners for Good Meets

With Distance Learning sweeping the world, the students at Pt England are so lucky to be able to still gather together every Friday morning for our school assembly.  The only difference is that our assembly is live streamed of course!

Here on Team 5, we really enjoy seeing our prefects during the assembly as they present the weekly korero.

This week, our school korero is Good Manners for Good Meets. This is exceptionally important as we are all using Google Meets to remain in contact with our teachers for various reasons on a daily basis.

2020 Visual Mihi

Every year the students of Team 5 spend the first few weeks of Term 1 using Hyperstudio to draw their own visual mihi. Each student starts off by tracing a picture of themselves. It is important to note that when it comes to using Hyperstudio this is generally the only thing that are students are permitted to trace. Therefore, as you look at the different visual mihi in this movie you will see original graphic artwork from our students based on 4 important aspects of their own life as they see it right now.
