Cross Country 2022!

Last week Friday our school had our Cross Country run (last year we didn’t have won). We got dressed in our house colours Hikianalia (yellow), Hokulea (green), Te Aurere (red), and Hinemoana (blue). I’m the house captain for the blue house. The house captains shared their chants which we all enjoyed doing. After that we went in random order of age groups to start the run. I came 4th which I’m quite proud of. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

 

Tongan Language Week 2022

Last week was Tongan Language Week. The theme for this week/year was “Ke Tu’uloa ‘a e lea faka-Tonga’ ‘i Aotearoa”. That week was so packed with fun and exciting things (mostly to do with Tonga). On Friday we did our Tau’olunga and shared it with the school. The boys also shared their dance. I had so much fun that week and really enjoyed it. I hope you have enjoyed this post.

Hamilton Temple – Open House

On Saturday my ward and I went to Hamilton to see the Open House. There is a (The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints) temple in Hamilton that has been closed for four years due to work and construction.

I was so excited to go because I haven’t been here in a long time. I was also excited to go on a tour and visit all the rooms. The Celestial and Baptism room were my favourite. The Celestial room gave me a glimpse of what heaven would be like and the Baptism room was where I could baptise the dead in a couple months time.

I really enjoyed that experience and can’t wait to do work for others and for some of my non-member family.

End of netball season!

Last week’s Tuesday was the last netball game for the season. It was my team and my last time playing for Pt England. My team consisted of Fifita, Mele, Melemanu, Lesiali, Mariko, Paula, Jayla, and myself. Our team was called the “Warriors”. I’ve really enjoyed my time playing for PES and especially with my own team. We’ve won some and lost some, but overall we did a great job. I’m also grateful for my coach, managers, and family/supporters. We came 5th in a grade which is a cool result. I hope you have enjoyed this post.

KPMG Trip!

Today some of the year seven and eight students went on a trip to KPMG. When we got there, there were people who introduced themselves. After that we went on a tour around the building/office. My group consisted of Emeline, Kolotita, Nora, Jade, Kahziloyu, and one of our helpers Chris. Then we came back for morning tea (which was amazing!). Next we took some pictures with Jez who did photography and drew some artwork pieces. Soon we had our delicious lunch. Lastly we played with clay and made stop motion animations. This whole trip was based on our term’s theme, Art Works. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

 

Saineha 1st Ward International Night

Yesterday Friday night my ward (Saineha 1st) had an International Night. Every quorum chose a country/continent to represent. Nursery did a pageant, Primary represented America, Youth represented Japan, YSA represented Mexico, Relief Society represented India, and Priesthood represented Africa.

Vaha and I were in the Youth item. The girls did a fan dance, the boys did a Kung Fu fighting, and we all did a tiktok dance. Catherine and Keni were in the primary item. They danced to the song Party in the USA. My Mum and cousin were in the Relief Society item (my Mum was in the Youth item and my cousin was in the YSA item). They did an Indian dance. My dad was in the African item (and Youth and Primary).

I enjoyed all of the quorum’s items and food. I also enjoyed dancing. I had SO MUCH FUN! I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

2022 Term 2 Highlights!

Term 2 has been another crazy and awesome term! We’ve had sports, camp, fun activities, celebrations and much more. I’d like to thank everyone (teachers, parents, staff, and basically everyone) for helping out this term and making this term another successful term. I will share my highlights.

We have started netball at the start of the term. My team is the PES Warriors. We have been improving (which we are proud of) and are excited for our upcoming games. My tech classes have been very fun and educational. I’ve had CTRL in term one and cooking in term 2. I loved making lots of healthy delicious food. We’ve had our amazing Year 8 Leadership Camp which was such a good experience and so much fun. We’ve had our Matariki celebration and celebrated my lovely teacher Miss Hall’s time at PES. She will be on her new journey so have fun and good luck! Thank you!

Sub-Topic Movie Brain Storm – Myths & Legends

This term for extension we learnt and researched about Local/Tamaki history. After we learnt heaps about it we moved onto a different topic. We chose myths and legends because there are some certain myths and legends about these iconic areas in Tamaki. I worked with Eva and Legacy. I learnt quite a lot about myths and legends. I found it fun and interesting. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Year 8 Leadership Camp – Highlights

During week 3 the year eights had their leadership camp. This camp was supposed to be fun and help us with our leadership skills, it really was. Our camp was at Carey Park Camp and I was in Waitakere. I have many highlights and things I wanna share but I will share just a few. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog. (There were certain activities that we couldn’t do because of the rain but we still had a blast).

Highlight 1/Activities – There were so many activities that would put me out of my comfort zone or they would’ve been so fun! Two of my favourite activities were flying fox, crate stacking, (much more but those two). I screamed so loud when I went on the flying fox because it was so high and it was insanely fun. The crate stacking kind of put me out of my comfort zone because I stood on unsteady crates but it was still super duper fun.

Highlight 2/Area – The area was amazing and beautiful! There would be signs like a green sign, yellow sign, and red sign (you probably get what that means).  There was a park, trampolines, fun play areas, a lake/river, etc. The cabins were also cool. As well as our meeting area, the dining hall and the court.

Highlight 3/ Food – We loved the food! I promise you that we were well fed and the food was delicious. I loved dessert and lunch. Thank you to the chefs and teachers for helping out with serving our food.

A HUGE THANK YOU to our helpers, parents, teacher, chefs and host/people at the camp for this amazing camp we had. It was super fun and I did not regret not going because I had a blast. I had a great time with my friends, watching others step up and lead, and the awesome activities. Thank you!

Tech@Tamaki/Cooking (and CTRL) – Smoothies

Hello, welcome back to my blog/welcome to my blog! Today we had our first new rotation, cooking!

Our new teacher is Miss H. In cooking we made smoothies. We sliced and diced our apples, sliced our bananas, rinse our spinach, poured milk and yogurt, and then blended it!  I worked with Aye. At the end we washed our dishes and added whipped cream to the smoothie. Thank you Miss H!

Before the lesson started Mr Daniels came to give me my packet of jelly snakes. I came top of the CTRL class. Thank you Mr Daniels!

I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.
