My time at Pt England was the best. It was so fun at Pt England because we explored a lot. We went to awesome camps that we haven't been before. I even made Awesome friends named Dante, Kimberly, Senolita, Elizabeth, Te Rina. My Teacher taught us a lot and my favourite thing to do is making movies and Painting New Zealand icons.

We even visited a shop that looked like Lolly world but it was full of Jelly Beans. Pt England was a great experience.


Yr 8 camp was so amazing because we did a lot of cool activities all over rotarua.  We went to a awesome pool that look like a spa but we had to walk threw bushes and trees to get there it was so hot.
We went on buses like every single day but it was fun it was better than running every morning.

We went to the luge and it was so cool. we had to get into groups to go in the skyline I was with Turuhira, Kan, Jesiah, Mr Chong Nee and Hare. The skyline took us very high. Hare was so funny she thought we were going to fall she covered her eyes and everyone was laughing.

There was a shop called the Jelly Belly it was full of yummy jelly Beans. t was so cool seeing all the colourful lollies. there was even jelly Beans art work and you could eat the jelly beans .

Net Book Refection 2013

Having a Net book is a Awesome because we can research a lot of different things. Mostly on my Net book games are so Popular since I'm going to be a teenager and they are addicted to gamesI would always try to finish my work so I could have time to play some of my Favourite games.

At school we work on or net book a lot that we have no time to go to our teacher. So my teacher made a site for us so we know what we are doing for or work and what is happening during school. Having a net book is so amazing because I've learnt a lot of things. I've been on a lot of different websites like scratch its fun we could create our own games and little animations.

The Day Santa Came To School

Secretly a group of people came to our school during assembly with an amazing surprised. We were told that they were going to give every single person would get a present from there four wheeled Slade. Everyone was shocked with happiness.

We got into a two groups of boys and girls. The boys was on one side of the hall and the girl was on the other side of the Hall. One row at a time the girls and boys stood up and grabbed one present each from inside of the red sacks of presents.

The presents were a mystery no one had no idea what was in the presents. Everyone tried to take a glimpse of what the presents were look like. We are so grateful and like to say a big thank you to Johnson and Johnson for the wonderful donation donation.

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela is was one of the greatest men alive.  Nelson  Mandela was born into Madiba clan in mvezo. He was named after a teacher who was name Nelson. Believe it or not he was the first dark president of South Africa.

Nelson Mandela attended a primary school near a town called Qunu. Nelson even went Clarkebury Boarding Institute in Engcobo. Nelson went to Healdtown, the Wesleyan College at Fort Beaufort He was lucky enough to go to the university of fort hare in Alice.

Nelson was Arrested and charged for violating the Suppression of Communism. He was Elected to be the ANC President. Convicted with J.S Moroka, Walter Sisulu and 17 others under the Suppression of Communism. He was sentenced to nine months imprisonment with hard labour, suspended for two years. Nelson Elected first of ANC deputy presidents and he opens South Africa’s first black law firm with Oliver Tambo.

An important event happened  when Nelson Mandela was released from prison on Robben Island in South Africa where he was serving a life sentence 1990. An international campaign had lobbied for his release. which was granted in 1990. After becoming ANC President, Mandela led negotiations with President F.W. de Klerk to abolish apartheid and establish multiracial elections in 1994, in which he led the ANC to victory.

Nelson Mandela was a great inspiration to the whole world. he helped a lot of people who was treated like slaves. he is like a father to the world.

Sadly in 5 December 2013 (Age 95) Nelson Mandela died.  He left a lot of memories  and hopefully he would go to heaven still remembering them.
