Garage Sale 2018

As part of our fundraising for Year 8 camp, Team 5 have their annual garage sale and this year we had it on Saturday 24th March. What a beautiful day it turned out to be with students turning up at 7.30am to help put their stalls together.

We had a long table filled with deliciously home made cakes, pineapple pies, cup cakes, muffins, cookies and some wonderfully made otai to quench the thirst. A candy floss stand was also a favourite for the kids. Parents got to enjoy some yummy seafood chowder made by Roz while our students were being great sales reps at the cheese toasties and hot dogs dogs.

It was great to see Josephine Bartley and Mrs Tele'a join us along with our Pt England babies.

We could go on and on but take a look at our video below to see more of our fun filled day.

A huge THANK YOU to our Pt England families and the wider community for coming down and supporting our students in their fundraising efforts.

We raised $1700!!! This is absolutely fantastic and will go towards our Year 8 Camp in Thames Valley.

Where does all our rubbish go?

Have you ever wondered where your rubbish ends up?

When you drop your rubbish on the ground - where do you think it goes?

Team 5 have been learning about this as part of our inquiry around "Kaitiakitanga i nga wa katoa".We've also been pushing our message of "JUST CLEAN IT" and "PUT IT IN THE BIN". Enjoy!

Visual Mihi

As part of our learning about "The Pt England Way" we are required to come up with a visual mihi. This a a visual representation about 4 things we value in our family. We are all proud of our cultural heritage so this was a major feature in most of our drawings. Here is a short clip we made for PENN to show case some of the awesome and diverse students of Team 5!
