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!

Matariki Celebration T2 2022

Last week Wednesday our school held a Matariki celebration day. We usually do this every year. Fallen, Chevelle, and I filmed and edited this movie. We filmed Team 3’s Matariki Celebration. They did cooking, art, and ki o rahi. I had fun filming and seeing what Team 3 got up to. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Shrek About Me

Hello! Hi! Hey! How are ya?! What’s up?!

 My name is Shrek. I live in the land of Duloc. There is a certain swap there and a house near it. My front yard had a few signs trying to scare you off saying things like “go away” or “warning green creature lives here” or “walk in, if you dare?!”. These signs are just to scare you because I like peace and quiet and just enjoy being alone and mostly sleep. 

Going back to my signs saying “warning green creature lives here”. That’s who I am! I am a green creature also known as ogre. I am in a beautiful fantasy with different people and creatures around me. This fantasy is either I have good luck or other times I got bad luck. 

Other people would judge me as an impatient or aggressive person and I sometimes would say that. Only when I am grumpy or just not in the right mood. They think that because I’m a big angry ogre but they haven’t really met me. I would describe myself as overreactive (in a good way of course), friendly, careful, and other nice things.

 I enjoy taking mud baths. Like legit, I take baths in the swap. Like I said I enjoy staying by myself and also privacy. I have a donkey as my friend and pet. He kind of annoys me but a real energetic animal. That donkey won’t stop talking, haha! I really like eating human flesh and bones! AHH! KIDDING! I love eating pumpkin and onion, and basically anything that is yum and good for me! 


Hello, welcome back to my blog/welcome to my blog! This week for cybersmart we learnt how to write a about me. This about me wasn’t about us, instead it was about Shrek. We had to write good things about him and promote him in a good way. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Term 2 Immersion Assembly

Hello, welcome back to my blog/welcome to my blog! Today is the first day of term 2! Yay! This morning we had a immersion assembly with the whole school. Each team shared an item based on what they are learning for this term. This term’s theme/koreo is “We Know The Way”.

Team One Item – Bees, Team One’s item was based around bees. There were two bee keepers who were searching for bees. There was this one big bumblebee that they chase and followed. The bee knew its way, it went right and left, up and down, over and under.

Team Two Item – Pirates, Team Two’s item was based around pirates. I teacher was a speaker, one was Jolly Roger and the other two were his pirate friends. Jolly Roger pulled out her map and read/looked through it. She got some audience members to help her find her way. They would North/Never, East/Eat, South/Soggy, West/Weet-Bix. Other kids used google and google maps. I guess thats just they way now these days. Everyone if now using technology for mostly everything. Usually when people travel they would use google maps or GPS or the navigation system on cars. Some use maps and paper or just their knowledge. Sometimes they just know where to go. I usually use google, google earth and google maps. 

Team Three Item – Scratch+Coding, Team three’s item was based on a quiz show about Scratch. Three students and Three teachers came up to participate in the quiz show. Questions include what is scratch?, what is coding?, what do you do to fix and code mistake?, and etc. The PES students won the quiz.

Team Four Item – QR Codes & Scratch, Team four’s movie was about navigating and QR codes. The teacher in the movie navigated around the school as a new student. She found and looked for QR codes. The QR codes left some messages and helped her find her way. She eventually did and thought this school was just right.

Team Five Item – Sphero, Team fives’s item was about coding. One teacher read and the other two were students and the other two where robots. One student was precised and the other was rebellious. They helped each other and learnt how the code their robots. I think it was quite funny when the two students (who were teachers) dumped water on the robots head.
