last year at Pt England school.

Kia Ora. I am a year 8 student at Pt England and I am in room 19.  This year will be my last year attending Pt England school.  I first started here at the age of 5 and I was a year 1.  I'm looking forward to going to college next year but I am going to miss all of my friend's here and the teachers to.

Saying good bye to my friends and teachers is going to be sad because it is going to be my last year attending Pt England school.  I'm going to miss my friends, Jorja, Lisia, Wakatere, Anamei, Henry and Ane hanging out with them has been fun I am going to miss our fun times with them.

I would like to say a huge "BYE" to the one and only best teacher Ms Tito. Ms Tito so far is one of my best teacher's.  The one thing I didn't like in my class was the lectures that Ms Tito had given us.

Next year I'm looking forward to college.  The school I will be attending next year is Auckland girls grammar School. I cant wait for next year, Next year I wan't to achieve all of my goals. My goals I want to achieve Next year are to improve in Maths and Reading.

This year the thing I have enjoyed the most is spending my time with my friends. Leaving this school and going to college is exciting for me but I am going to miss everything I have done here and learnt here.

Year 8 camp 2013.

The exiting moment us year 8's were all waiting for "CAMP". The camp grounds us year 8's were staying at was Keswick Christian camp witch is in Rotorua. We went to Keswick Christian camp because it was our last year together at pt England school so we went to camp to spend time together. We all went down to Rotorua in 2 bus's with teachers and parent helpers.

We got to Keswick camp grounds and meet a man who worked there his name was Simon. Simon told us were every thing was like the toilets and kitchen and some rules. We all were put in to groups my group was T.F.K witch means "The Fashion Killers". After we were all in our groups we all girls went into our cabins and the boys went into here cabins.

The most thing that challenged me the most was on the first day we all went on a long bush walk. The bush walk was tiering and hard, My legs were saw from going up the hills and down the hills. There was one thing that was fun for me witch was getting to the end of the trail and hoping on to the bus and having a rest.

My highlight of camp was the sheep show I enjoyed the sheep show because we got to see different types of sheep's. My favourite sheep that I liked was the Merino, The Merino had thick hair and big horns. My favourite thing at the sheep show was patting the animals and feeding the little lamb milk.

Net Book reflection.

This year has been the third year our school Pt England have been working on Net Books. Working on Net Books are easier than using a pencil and paper. My favourite thing to do on my Net Book is going on maths whiz. Searching thing's up on the internet are easy, So if I don't know what a word means I go on Google and search what the definition of it means. The help of the internet is great because we get to Google thing's we don't know about.

The thing I have learnt on my Net Book in he past three years is how to use Google docs and blogger. One thing I have learnt by myself on my Net Book is how to use photo bucket and many other sites. In my classroom we sometimes work in partners and work together and one thing I have learnt from my friends is to help each other when they need help on the internet.

This year I have helped people on there Net Books by telling them how to create new things on there Net Books if they don't know how to. We go on maths whizz and every thing by using internet and many other things by using internet. On my Net Book I have learnt on the internet what many words mean.

This year I have managed myself using my Net Book by being at the right place at the right time. I don't have to get wait for my teacher to tell me what to do I can just get up and do my work.

My highlights of the year.

1st highlight: My first favourite highlight of the year was picking flax. The reason why I liked picking flax was because  it is fun. We all had to pick a flax each and we all went back to school. When we got to school we weaved it and that part was really fun. When we were weaving the flax it was really complicating but fun at the same time.

2nd highlight: My second highlight of the year was Tuakana Reading . I enjoyed Tuakana Reading because we got to teach little kids how to read and read books with them. We always used to go to the library every tuesdays and read with little kids in room 9. We had to get a little kid from room nine every week and read different books with them every week.

3rd highlight: My third highlight of the year was basketball. I liked basketball because we got to learn new moves. In basketball we learnt heaps of cool moves and got to play some cool basketball games. Basketball is fun, We meet some new basketball coaches and they all taught us different things each week.
