Tarawera Movie

The extension group have been making a movie about how the Pink and White terraces were destroyed in an eruption. We all had different parts to this project. My part was when Sophia was taking a group of tourists to see the astonishing Terraces. I hope you like my movie and if you like it, can you please comment. I would be really happy. Hope you ENJOY!!! Thank you.

P.E.S Tour

Have you visited Pt England School? Do you want to? Well today I am going to take you on a virtual tour! It might not be a REAL tour but I still can tell you, all the astonishing and hard working things that this school does.

Pt England School does this very unique thing called PENN (Pt England News Network).In this we tell the school what people have been up to and we also show them a few of how the classes work. Every day a class is timetabled to be on news, they have to work really hard to create a movie for this, and we watch it EVERYDAY!

Mrs Tele'a who edits this show everyday, has a small group of year year 7 students who produce this show. She also has a small camera crew who film this event. Then there is a larger group of people of year 5 and 6 students who are the news presenters. Here is a little video of how the news is created.

In Pt England school the classes all have blogs! Do you have one? All of our year 5/6 and 7 students have their own blog! They use their blog to tell the world what they have been up to. I am 1 of the students who love to blog (Writing is one of my favourite subjects).

I think I have told you enough of Pt England! If you really want to know more, why don't you come and visit our school. Our School loves visitors, we treat them with respect and honour.
