The Prize Giving

Yesterday I was so excited and nervous at the same time. It was Pt England School's prize giving. I did not get a prize but I was going to sing a song with Kalim and Sam. The worst thing was that at the beginning I had to do a solo for the first verse.

We all entered the hall and sat down the first group to perform was the Kapa Haka group they were amazing. They sang beautifully I was amazed. It was time for me,Sam and Kalim turn to sing I was so nervous I could feel my legs shaking. 

My favourite was the team 4 boys who did a remix and added different types of dance like Tectonic and Hip hop.

At the end of the day I was proud of myself for getting up and singing in front of a huge audience for the first time. But I was also disappointed in getting two nominations for rugby team spirit and sportswoman but not getting a certificate.... there is always next year!!

Market Day

This week our class & rm19 had a awesome experience. It was the first time I had ever been in a market day.When I got here in the morning everyone looked frustrated as they ran around trying to set up there stall and finish the rest of their product.

On market day our theme was around bugs my group(Tamara & Kezia) were making Insect birthday and Christmas cards. Me and Tamara got our stall ready and started to wait for the people to buy our product.

It was time for ever class to come past and see our product I was really nervous because I thought we no one was going to buy our product. Luckily we did sell some at the end of the day our group made $7.50.

But counting all the group classes made around $490.00. I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Nua & Miss Tito for helping us with our projects and giving us a chance to show the school what us year sevens can make!!I hope we have a chance to have another Market day.

A day for champion

I was last in line when I heard one of my friends say “Bobbi its your turn.” I stepped up to the mark.With the ball in my hand. I could feel my legs tremble I threw the ball as far as I could . I was so glad when Miss T told me I had won second place.

Yes! it was Pt England schools Athletics day(Athletics is when you do a bunch of events like Discus, Softball,Sprints and a lot of other stuff). Every year we put on a display of events to see to see who are the elite Athletes. At our school we are divide in to four house groups called Matatua,Te arawa,Takitimu and the best group of all Tanui.

After my cunning win of second place of with the softball throw it was time for Shot put. Having never came a place in shot put before I was nervous. This time I was one of the first people up. I put the ball by my ear as tension was growing hearing people cheering me on. Finding out my throw was good enough for 2nd place.

It was time for the event I had been waiting for I stood feeling a slight breeze run through my body really nervous listening to Mr Burt(Our Principle) Saying on your marks. I stood shaking as some people wanted to keep making us start all over again. It was time to get serious Mr Burt said on your marks get set BANG!! I sprinted down the track with the wind blowing through my face. Winning all my heats making it to the finals.

It was time for the finals I could fell mixed emotions as the Y7(year7)11year old girls were up. I ran down the track as fast as I could. My running was good enough for 1st in my 75 and 100 meter race.

The thing I liked most about Athletics was having a lot of fun and winning five certificates(1st in 75and100 meters,2nd in softball,2nd in discus and 3rd in shot put).I hope that when we find out the final results Tainui will come out on top for 2010 athletics. I can not wait until inter-zones!!

This week our school(PtEngland) was very fortunate to finally claim our netbooks. Our class and Romm 19 are so lucky because we are the first classes in our whole cluster that get to trial these netbooks. I cant wait to find out new things and have heaps of fun at the same time.

We have tried a application calledhave tried a new application called cheese. We have taken a picture to show how well our computer works. I would like to say a huge thank you to Dean farmer,Mr Burt and everyone else that made it possible for us to reiceve these Netbooks.

Totara Springs

My favourite part of the year has always been the holidays. No work just going places and sleeping in.

This holiday I was fortunate enough to go to a camp named Totara Springs with our Riverside club. On the way there I was so excited to do all the activities from last year again.

When we arrived at camp the first thing we did was go to our cabins. Georgia and Tapunu’u(our leaders) got us organised.

he next thing we did was go to the lecture theatre. As we entered I saw everyone and thought it was going to be a hard competition this year. Every year at Totara Springs there is a competition you have to sit up and be good to collect fake money and who ever gets the most wins. Pt England is well known because all of our teams won last year(senior and a junior girls and boys).After that we went back to the cabins we worked on our booklets(gives you points) so that we can defend our title as best cabin at prize giving.

After that we went back to the cabins we worked on our booklets(gives you points) so that we can defend our title as best cabin at prize giving.It was the next day it was time for the things I don’t like at camp devos(devotions). They introduced the new speaker for our camp. His name was captain Eric. He was really cool and fasinating because he used magic to make it interesting to learn about god.

It was finally time for our prize giving we were so nervous. Everyone quickly went to the lecture theatre. They said thank you to a couple of people and then it was time to see if we had defended our title as best senior girls cabin. They announced the junior girls first as the camp co-ordinator said “it goes to Pt England“ all of us started cheering. They were finally announcing who won out of the senior girls. We were so nervous we crossed our fingers as they said Pt England school all our teams stood jumped up and started cheering. It was time for the junior and senior boy to hear if they won. Obviously Pt England came out on to again defending our title as best cabins. At the end of the night we sang to the lord for the last time at camp as the next day it was time to go.

My favourite part of camp was GYOB!!(get your own back) it is when you are aloud to put mud, water and other yuck stuff on our leaders the best thing is that I got to tackle my principal (Mr Burt ). I cant wait until I go next year!!


After five weeks of practising we finally had the chance to show off our talent to our to families. As I heard Mr Burt shout out “Welcome everybody to Pt England school’s 2010 Fia Fia night!”I was so nervous. I was in Rm 17 watching every one’s performances. There performances were awesome.

We were nearly up I was even more nervous then before. While we were waiting on the side I could hear the choirs beautiful singing as the crowd happily sang along. It was Glee’s turn to go up and perform I had a mixed bag. I stood there waiting for the bell when I heard my family shout out “GO BOBBI!”. I wasn’t nervous when I started performing but I could still feel does butterflies. My favourite part of Glee’s act was when we did our final song because it gave everyone in the glee group a chance to show of there moves.

Our Fia Fia night was amazing and jamed packed with dancing,singing and acting. I hope all the families that came had a blast. I can’t wait until next year’s production!!

Jesse Martin's amazing solo journey

When Jesse Martin was 17 he set sail to be the youngest person to sail the globe. His dream was amazing and he was amazing and he was very determined to accomplish it.

Jesse Martin was born was born in the back of a Kombi van on the outside of Munich on August 26,1981. His parents names are Louise and Kan. His parents were hippies when they separated. Jesse and his younger brother beau lived with the mum.

Growing up Jesse Martin was like each other person with a lot of dreams. Surprisingly sailing wasn’t one of them until he was thirteen. Everyone thought he was crazy. His meteorologist(the branch of science concerned with the processes and phenomena of the atmosphere) Roger Badham told him to call David Adams to see if he would change his mind but it only him wont to go even more.

On December the 8th 1998 Jesse Martin set sail on his journey as 20,000 people watch him leave.When he wassailing he didnt have any clue for how to work the sails. When he was departure his attempt but it didn’t start until Port Philips Heads.

Jesse went on his trip early for two reasons. Its because a man named David Dicks might break the record before he dose. Also so he could come back before his birthday.

Jesse’s journey was amazing and packed with adventure and not much shower. Jesse came back to Australia on the 5th of January 1999. It took 328 days.

Jesse was a great sailer that believed that you can achieve anything if you set your mind to it. I hope there will be a lot more teen mariners like him!!

Over 50 kg VS Year 7 girls

Today we were ready to set off for another exciting game against Viscount Intermediate. Unfortunately it was cancelled due to the weather earlier this week. But we did not care instead we versed our over 50 kg boys team. We got ready into our uniform nervous and thinking we were going to lose. Our coach's(Mrs Flavell and Bobbi) gave us some words of encouragement.

It was finally game time as we set up on the field our captain's trying to get organise as some people were mucking around. It was time to get serious the ball was let out as their forward pack came crushing down we all helped and someone rip the ball and passed to Etta scoring the first try of the game.

At the end of the game we came out with a cunning win 3 trys to 1. I think the best tacklers of the game were Racheal and Mauina because they took down a really big person(Richard ). But my favourite parts of Rugby is getting tackled and tackling.Having that game has boosted my confidence and I can't wait to have that match with Viscount!!

Life education

This term we went to the Life Education caravan. We learnt about how smoking can affect your body. Lyn (the lady that taught us in the caravan) also told us that cigarettes have 4000 chemicals and 200 can cause cancer. Some of the chemicals are white ant poison, nicotine, rocket fuel and floor cleaner.
But the most important thing we learnt was to do with making choices. Lyn showed us a video of what a girl did when she was given a smoke. Here is a movie made by,Rachael,Tamara and I.

My MI Test

This term we have been given a opportunity to complete a MI test(multiple Intelligent). The best intelligent for me is Musiucal smart. But the things I need to work on is Linguistic and Visual/spatial intelligents. I will try to improve on it by practising drawing and learning a new word everyday!!

If they should lower the drinking age our not

I disagree that the drinking age for teenagers,Should be lowered from 18 years to 16 years because there will be more accidents. People will think there solid and drink and drive. A couple of years ago my auntie p passed away in a car crash by KFC in Glen Iness because she was drinking and driving. That is why they should actually put the age up to twenty years and if anyone under twenty is drinking they should be fined. That is my opinion on if they should lower the age our not.

Put myself in a 'Volcanic Eruption'

It was 1 in the morning. The stars were bright and the moon was shining.

Until I felt a light breeze, then I heard a big "BOOM!" my eyes opened wide. I could feel the the ground shaking, I looked outside and saw lava flowing down from Rangitoto.

Everyone was screaming - we could feel a mixed bag of emotions. Ash was pouring down and destroyed my family's house. We rushed to the car crying as we saw dead people.
we drove
out of the city nearly burning to death.
We were so glad to make it out alive.
I hope we are never near a volcanic eruption again!

Mt Eden

Mt Eden is one of the volcanoes in the Auckland volcanic Field. It has a really popular park and is a key stop for tourist. Mt Eden has a complicated scoria cone structure with three main craters. Volcanologist (scientist that study volcanoes)say that Mt Eden our any of the other Auckland volcanoes are unlikely to erupt again which means its extinct.

Our rugby game against Henderson

There I was sitting in the car shivering waiting for our game. While we were in the car we were chatting about how nervous we were and how we couldn't wait to tackle someone.

When we arrived at Henderson Intermediate we thought that our game was going to be easy but it wasn't.

Everything started to get nasty the girls on the other team started pulling hair and defending the wrong way.

At the end of the we lost but at least we tried our best and never gave up. I think that we did really well I am so proud of myself because I got player of the day for the first time ever. I CANT WAIT UNTIL OUR NEXT GAME!!

Here is some footage of our game.

Mt Wellington Auckland volcano

This term we have been learning about our Active Earth. Here is a paragraph about Mt Wellington.
Mt.Wellington is well known for its quarry that has been recently been taken out. There has been lots of evidence found like food storage pits to show that Maori inhabited Mt Wellington.
Mt Wellington is also named in the honour of the Duke of Wellington.
Here is a video about Mt Wellington I hope like it

Volcano Report

people might think what is a volcano. Volcanoes are mostly shaped like a cone. When a underwater volcano erupts it can cause a Tsunami . volcanologist(scientist who study volcanoes) say there are more than 1500 active volcanoes in the world.

A volcano is formed on edge of the plates. As the plates crash we can feel shifting in many ways. Like through earthquakes and volcanoes.

A volcano eruption occurs by the mantle getting to hot(The mantle can go up to 4000 Degrees Celsius). Mantle has magma in it. When the mantle gets to hot,plates collide then the magma goes through the earths cracks and explodes. That is whey I think volcano in Latin mean 'break out'.

There are three main different types of volcanoes in the world . They are called cinder cone,Strato and shield volcano.

Shield volcano

Shield volcanoes are one of the three different types. The shield volcanoes are shaped like a ancient warriors that is where it got its name. The distinctive features are its flat bottomed craters and shallow sided mounds. Its low-silica magma produces long lava flows. Most shield volcanoes are also found on crust.

Strato volcanoes

Strato volcanoes are really famous. Mt Vesuvius,Mt St.Helen's and Mt Fuji are Strato volcanoes. A strato is really explosive of ash and cinder its magma is also terribly viscous. They also have layering of ash,lava and has steep walled craters.

Cinder cone

The cinder cone is one of the most common volcanoes in the world. Cinder cone volcanoes explode and sputter out fragments called cinders(That is where it got its name). They are important to us because
cinder cones are all around Auckland.

Most recent eruption

The most recent eruption has been really terrible. It has caused people to sleep in airports and has delayed a lot of flights. Now that the volcano in Iceland has calm down everything in airports are back to normal.


Even though eruptions can look really fascinating. They are dangerous and all over the world.

3. When Mt Vesuvius erupted it was so violent that it covered Pomepii and Herculam
4. The most recent eruption caused a big wait at the airport.
5. When lava is inside a volcano it is called magma which is kept in chambers.

My first Netball game

Ms Tito said "lets go," now I was feeling so excited as we jumped into cars and headed up to the courts. We were going to our first netball game for the 2010 season. I was so nervous because it was my first game ever.
The position I played was GD(goal defence).
Before we started our game we did a little warm up. Then the Game had started.
As soon as the whistle blew everyone ran up to the ball like it was the last cake on earth. As the ball was getting closer to me I got more nervous by the minute. The ball had finally came to where I was Playing. When I was defending the ball my confidence built up.
At the end of the game I was so tired that I was gasping for air.
We lost 16-7 our player of the day was April. I was really proud of myself and I cant wait until our next game!!!

Ice Skating

"Yay" I whispered to my friend. I was so excited as I entered the room it felt like I had suddenly entered a giant freezer. I zipped up my jacket tightly and wished I had worn my gloves. Yes it was my first time ever Ice skating. When I started Ice skating I was starting to get better until, my cousin threw ice t me causing me to slide ungracefully across the chilly rink. As I stood up it felt like a heavy breeze had hit me. By the end of the day I felt like I was skating like a pro. Im looking forward to going Ice skating again.
