Camp TC

I felt extremely ecstatic and so excited! My bags were already ready for camp. This year I was looking forward to camp because unfortunately I didn’t go camp last year. This years camp was from Monday - Wednesday. On Monday people came in mufti and also with their luggage. Everyone was so filled with joy but first we had to have a camp meeting with Mrs Nua then headed off to our activities with our group. My Group were the Participatorz. Our leaders were Helen Tui and Charm.

Day 1:

The first day of camp was really exciting for me. Through the whole day we were all playing

games and helping out with the Hangi. Our 1st game was with Mr Harris which was Khan.

The aim of the game was to roll the ball in the middle of the cones and run and get it back.

The first team to get the most rolls in the cones until the times over wins. For this game we

were divided in half and had 2 Teams against each other. I was in Helen’s group. When we

finished we were moved to different activities through the day. One was making our tents up

our tents we were told to get our luggage

and put it in our tent.

Day 2:

In the morning at 6:00 we had to wake up for Jump Jam. Some

wouldwake up earlier or just sleep in. After Jump Jam was breakfast.

It wasdelicious. Then finally it was Rock up time. At Rock up we got

told thateach group were challenging each other for the treasure box.

In thetreasure box were soft drink cans, chocolate and lollies.

At Rock upwas full of different types of activities, there was the

Alligator Alley, Rock Wall, Ski Boards, Archery and the Dunker.

My favourite highlightat Rock up was the Dunker. Getting people

dunked, wet and splashed was cooling and fun too. It was so hot

that I felt like I was going to meltbut thanks to the dunkers

getting me wet I survived.

Camp T.C Concert:

At Camp there was a concert. Each group had to perform a Item and an MTV and a special

item. We had 3 judges which were Mr Jacobsen with the help of two people, Peni and Cindy.

I really enjoyed seeing lots of items and MTV’s. My favourite item that night were the Motivaterz

and the Thinkers. It was really fun.

Going to a school camp was really fun. I hope that at the end of the Year the year 8 students

get to go on another camp.

Christchurch Earthquake

As you may of heard a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch. It was sad. The next day when I went to school we had an assembly. Our assembly was based on what happened on the 22nd of February which was when the earthquake struck Christchurch. Tanielu and Paulitia said a prayer for those who got injured and those with lost families and prayed that they would be well again. At the end of our assembly we agreed on helping Christchurch. Our principal Mr Burt suggested that each class had to find out a way to help those in Christchurch. My class chose to fund raise and give the money to help the people of Christchurch.

Back at Tamaki Tech

On the 14th of February it was Fun. We were going back to Tech. This year was different. The Year 7's last year are now year 8's and the 6's last year are also now year 7's. At first we got to know our groups and then we headed down to Tamaki College for Technology.

I am in Electronics. My Teacher is Indian. There are different types of groups for Tech. There's Electronics, Graphics, Food Technology, Hard materials and Science. My room number is EP1. At Tech I sit next to Mauina and Junior. I hope that this year it will be more fun from last year.

Funtastic Holiday

During the holidays on the 29th of January my family and I had a family picnic. My cousins from my Grandpa’s side organized the picnic. It was held at Maraetai beach. We arrived there at 11:00 and came back at 7:00.

As soon as I stepped out of the bus I felt like it was my birthday. Everyone around me were putting up their tents and my brother playing touch with my boy cousins. I joined in playing touch with my brother and cousins.

After that it was time for us kids activities. Firstly we played Tree, log and bridge. After that it was time for the Water Slide. At first I didn't join in because I didn't have any spears so I just sat down with my sister and cousin. It was now round 2 so then I joined with the clothes that I was wearing. Coming down the slide was scary. Since it was slippery I came down the slide fast. I was screaming like I was in a horror movie but it was fun.

After all that fun playing activities it was time to eat. As we were playing before my Mum, aunties and uncles were doing the BBQ. The BBQ was delicious.

All about Me

All About Me

Talofa Lava my name is Mui and I am 12 years old. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. I go to Point England Intermediate school and live in Glen Innes. I am full Samoan and part Chinese.

My hobbies are singing and playing musical instruments such as piano and guitar. Wherever or whenever I see it I would ask the person who owns it and see if they will let me use it. When I was at the age of 7 I learnt how to play the guitar. It was FUN!. It took me about 3 weeks to learn and it was hard but then I got use to it so now I know how to play a guitar.

As you may already know I go to Point England Intermediate school. I’m in a classroom mixed with Yr 7’s and 8’s. My room number is 21 and my teacher is Mrs Lagitupu. She is Niuean and is also brilliant. I love my class and my teacher and I hope we have a great year this year.


“ Yeah today’s Picnic day ” screaming kids in the street. On the 24th February at Point England School was Picnic Day. Every Year at Point England School we have a special day to go to Pt England Reserve for a Picnic. As the bell rang people were rushing through people in the street trying to get to class for assembly. At assembly our principal Mr Burt gave us a few safety rules on heading down to the reserve. After assembly we were getting ready to head down to the reserve. We went there in classes and also with our parent helpers.

When we got there we got told our boundaries and rules. One of our rules were to have fun.
People were already setting up nets and activities for the kids to play. There were many types of sports that were about to be played such as Volley Ball, Softball, Grid - Iron and all kinds of other sports. There was also swimming, we were only allowed to be in the water for 20 minutes. The Juniors were first then the Year 6,7 and 8’s were last.

Everyone was having a great time. People were even having shared lunch and hanging out with Ms Tito and her guitar. Those who were with Ms Tito were learning a new Waiata. Some were singing and some were just there to listen. I was getting bored so I asked Ms T if I could borrow her guitar. I sang and played until I felt tired. My friend Helen was with me and Mauina and Victoria.

At the end of the day everyone had to go line up in there class lines, and wait until the whole school was ready to go back to school. It took long. When everyone was there Mr Burt asked Ms Tito to play a Waiata before we did the closing prea, we sang Wairua Tapu. After the closing prea we all headed back to school to class and got ready for home time.

So....... I really had FUN and I'm sure everyone else had fun too.
