Manaiakalani Film Festival

Last week, Point England School students had the opportunity to go to Hoyts in Sylvia Park. We went there to watch movies that students have produced from other schools that are part of the Manaiakalani Cluster. Teachers and students could create any sort of movies they would like.

The year 7 and 8’s departed from school at 10.45am. This year I was lucky enough to get the chance to present our class movie with my fellow friend, Mary. We were presenting our movie about “The Life of a Germ”. It was about a germ that was spreading throughout all of the students in the classroom.

Once we arrived at Sylvia Park, all of the presenters walked to cinema two at Hoyts cinemas. We walked in and all I could see was a gigantic movie screen. I couldn’t wait to get tucked into watching all of the movies that were being premiered.

Mary and I arrived at our seating area and we were the 5th pair to present. I was getting so nervous  and there was so many butterflies in my stomach. I just couldn’t wait to get it done and over with.

Once we finished I was so relieved. I couldn’t wait to just go home and relax.

This afternoon we had Andrew Patterson came to our school to talk to us about college next year. He talked to us about being a great person in college and asked us to name some subjects at college. Most people said social studies, science and english. Everyone was actually looking forward to those subjects.

He was also telling us about the 7 habits that normal teens so know. Number 1 - Be Proactive, Number 2 - Begin with end in mind, Number 3 - Put first things first, Number 4 - Think Win-Win, Number 5 - Synergize, Number 6 - Seek first to understand then be understood and lucky last - Sharpen the saw.

A Normal Day at Point England School!!

Normal Day at Point England School!!!
By: Rave and Sarahnea

Sitting and waiting for a lovely day to start
Students were admiring beautiful art
Mihi and karakia were being said
We knew there was a good day ahead

Tuesday and Thursday we have tech
Walking in a line looks like a wreck
Graphics and Music are some subjects we do
Most of us don’t really have a clue  

Maths is something we do in the noon
Our teacher feeds strategies to us like a spoon
Gloss testing is currently being done
I really hope i'm not the first one

  • take care with your spelling and punctuation
  • give your writing a title if you want to

It was one lovely night and the moon was glissering high in the sky. I had been waiting for this special night as it is my birthday. I had some of my awesome friends come over to my house for a sleepover. My mother and I had planned an agenda for us to do.

First on our list, was to go and collect everyone up from there houses. My friends that were coming over were Lesieli, Nikita and Quasia. Nikita got dropped off but we went to collect the others.

When everyone had been comfortably sitting down waiting for what was going to happen. We decided to go and pick up some delicious pizza from Pizza Hut. We had already pre-ordered it so we just needed to pick it up. As I was sitting down, I could smell the delicious aroma of the pizza rising from the box as it was slowly making it’s way across the room. Therefore, it caused me to drool a little.

Once all of the pizza was finished, we headed to Skateland. Skateland is an indoor roller skating rink for anyone that is willing to skate just for fun. We had arrived and it wasn’t that packed with people. We had collected our roller skates and headed towards the rink. As I was putting my skates on, I could see exciting faces on people in the rink and I was so eager to get in and start rolling around.

Once I entered the rink, I was really nervous and excited at the same time because I hadn’t had skated for a really long time. When I first started, I held on to the side of the rink because I wasn’t ready to let go yet. Opposite me was, Nikita. She doesn’t really like roller skating but she gave it a go and I was proud of her. A few minutes later was flying like an eagle in the sky. She wasn’t even scared anymore and I wasn’t too.

We stayed at skateland for about 2 to 3 hours and then we decided to leave. When we arrived back home, and we set up our beds downstairs and had all of our showers. While, 1 was in the shower, everyone else was just helping to set up for our night time slumber party! We had already picked out our snacks a few hours before at Pak’n’save and we had a movie playing for us to enjoy while we were relaxing.

The next day, we headed to Jump NZ for just a little fun for us to have before we took everybody home. We had received our Jump socks and then walked into the Trampoline arena. We could see a foam pit, a dodgeball bit, a free run area and a basketball hoop area. We all couldn’t wait to just get in and jump around. We were so thrilled and delighted.  

We then decided to go and play dodgeball. It was so Hilarious. Lesieli nearly got a ball to the face and so did Quasia and Nikita. But the funny thing is, that we were versing little kids and they were better than us. I couldn’t believe it. It was just a game in the end though.

While everyone was jumping around, my mum had bought us some drinks so we wouldn’t die of thirst. Once, we had finished our drinks, we then went to get some lunch. We drove straight to KFC for lunch so we could put something into our empty stomachs. I didn’t really want KFC, I wanted Mcdonalds but sadly, my mum said “NO, we will just have KFC because it is closer to our house”.  

Next, we then, sadly had to drop everyone off to there houses. I didn’t want to but we had to because, Lesieli and Quasia had to go to church and Nikita, well, she didn’t have to go, but she didn’t want to be the only girl left. So, we just took her home anyway.
