#Respect!! =D

One of the values that I really like is, Respect. Respect is one of the values that we use at Point England school. Respect is really important for me because if you’re not respectful then you’ll just be rude and disrespectful. That is where you get no where.

“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that's real power.”
  • Clint Eastwood

This quote that I found is on Respect Quotes.

#Timeline Zeal Zone!!!

This week in Zeal Zone, each group were given a date from the timeline of WW1. Then we had to find five facts and images about that day to show you all. Our group got 3 February 1915. That was the day when the NZ soldiers first saw combat. They were defending the Suez Canal from the Ottoman Empire who were trying to destroy it. This image shows the facts that we have researched and put together for you. We hope you enjoy.

#Aunty Emily's Concert!

#Memorial Grounds Of ANZAC =D

As you may know, we have a memorial here at Point England School. The Memorial is placed in front of class 3. The special occasion commemorates, ANZAC day. As you can see, there is a image at the very top which is the memorial's out line.

At 10:00 am class 2 and 5 went to the memorial grounds and worked on an image (Image at the top)  that everyone attended to work on. We are also reading a book called “The Anzac Button” which is based on a soldier that kept his “khaki” and it then passed on to another generation to another.

I had alot of fun learning and working on ANZAC day and what had happened on that tragic day. I hope we learn more about Anzac soldiers and what happened to their families

#Marsden Pt Camp

For the past couple of days, I have been at camp. Year 8 camp. Camp was held in Whangerei, One Tree Point. But the campus was called "Marsden Pt" Marsden Pt Camp, was a camp designed to help us with leadership and how to lead others as Year 8's. We were all split into 4 groups, Marsden, Ruakaka, One Tree Pt and North Beach. I was the leader for Marsden B with Byron.

We had 2 weeks to organise ourselves but I accidentally packed on the night before camp (✌️accidentally✌️) But I got everything ready in 9 minutes!!.. When I had finished packing my bag, I went straight to sleep...Well I tried because i was so excited.

As soon as I woke up (Oh and F.Y.I, I had to be at school by 7:15 am 😑), I probs had about, 2 hours sleep. That's how excited I was. My gear was all packed, I had breakfast, I was changed and I did my hair. The only thing I didn't do was, my bed 😞. So I secretly closed my door grabbed my bag and went to the car.  When my mum and dad came into the car, we went straight to school.

When we arrived at school, I saw my team sitting there with "Awesomeness 😌" I was so proud. But then I saw the time on the clock and it was as 8:30! What a waste of my time waking up at 6:00 😞. But it was actually a bad influence on my team, so I'm thinking that it wasn't a very good start to my leadership experience. I said my apologies and started my day with a smile. I also said my goodbyes to my family.  When we finished saying our karakia (prayer) we then packed our stuff into the 2 buses and headed straight to Whangarei. 

It took us ... 3 hours to get there 😩 but we all survived. I was falling asleep and everyone was watching a movie. I was in the bus with all my friends. So it was pretty loud. But we made it and I was so happy. Some of us got car sick but they needed to get a little bit of air. 

As soon as we got there, we took our bags out, had lunch and went straight to our cabins. In my cabin was, Ana.V, Angelina.V, Rave.M, Ata.F and Josephine.F and Me 😁. We were the first cabin on the girls side, cabin 9.

I had a lot of fun, with and without my teammates and friends. I had my ups and downs, but I made it with out crying :) I learn't a lot about leadership and how to lead others. My highlight was knowing others from my team. Marsden was Awesome!
