Final Goodbye

Today is my last day here at Pt England School. It has been an honour and privilege working here for the past 11 years. I have loved working with amazing staff, team and children. Thank you Pt England, I will miss you. Thank you everyone who commented and helped me throughout my journey. God bless. Love Priscilla Lavakula

End of Year Class Party/ Fun Day/ Shared Lunch

It was our second to last day at school and we decided to have some fun. Our first game was the chocolate game. There were two plates with a cake of chocolate and forks and knives on each. Children had to roll a six and put on three items: one on their head, one of their face and one on their bodies. If there were already two children changing and another person rolled a six then they had to tap one out and start putting on their costumes.

The second game we played was the Balloon Stomp game. Each child was given a balloon and had to blow it up. They were given a piece of string and tied one end to the balloon and the other end to around their ankle. When the teacher said go, each child could run around and stomp on another person's balloon. Once your balloon is popped, you were out. The last person with their balloon still inflated and around their ankle was the winner. We had two winners yesterday: Kurtas and Simon but they were so good to include Noah as well.

Pt England PIcnic 2016

Today we had our annual school picnic at the Pt England reserve. We had to postpone it twice earlier in term one because of the weather. We weren't too sure today about the weather because it was overcast. But from 12pm today, the sun came out. It was a great day and we all had a great time. Here is a short clip of some of the things we did.

Kiwisport: Cricket

For the remaining weeks left of school, our class have been learning about cricket. Our coach is teaching us skills to play the game first. Here is a short clip of us practicing our bowling. We need to keep our arms straights and it has to be an overarm bowl. We are trying really hard to hit the wickets with the ball.

Pt England School Bike Track

Our school is in the process of having a brand new bike track made for us. The track is set around the outside of our school field and also goes around the junior and senior playground. It has been so much fun watching the men making it, hard at work. Our children have loved running over the dirt piles too. We can't wait till it's finished so we can ride our bikes on it.
