Yr y Rainbow's End Trip

On Wednesday 20th November, the year sevens were fortunate enough to visit Rainbow's End. This is a trip that we hold every year, to celebrate the end of year seven, before we come back as the leaders of the school.

We spend the entire day there; we get into small groups with a parent helper and then get to explore the park with them. Here is a promo movie of the trip, we hope it will prepare next years year sevens for the amazing event!

2019 Manaiakalani Film Festival

This year, Room 1 created a movie for our annual Manaiakalani Film Festival called "Dear Future Me."  We had a lot of fun making our movie and seeing our faces morph from the 5 year old me to the present day student that we now are. We hope you enjoy our movie!

Genomics Hui

Today, the students of Pt England were joined by the year 7/8 students from Glenbrae and Glen Innes Primary to have a celebration hui. For the past term (or more), we have been studying Genomics along with Dr. van Hees and Dr. Theirry from the University of Auckland. Our students have learnt so much and it was so fun and rewarding to come together with the other two schools and celebrate by sharing our learning.

Here are some pictures from our celebration.

Mrs.Ilaoa welcoming the students to our learning space and introducing our timetable. 

Students were put into mixed groups to share their learning and compete against the other teams in a Genomics quiz.

Students were awarded spot prizes for their learning achievements during the term and the competitions of the day.

Niue Language Week

Today marks the end of Niue Language Week and here at PES we were treated to an amazing cultural performance by our Niue Cultural group.  We are so proud of these students for supporting their culture and for others who chose to learn about a culture other than their own.
