PES Korero

Today at assembly, Mr Burt shared a new korero. The korero for the week is Smart Footprint. Mr Burt asked us to think about the digital footprint that we leave behind when we are online. As part of this, he asked us to think about the photo that represents us on our google accounts.

Here is the video he shared:



He finished the korero with a quote by Doris A. Wright: “The future lies before you, like a field of fallen snow; Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.”

How are you ensuring that your digital footprint is a good representation of you, your whānau and your community?

Assembly on Google Hangouts

Today we held our second Pt England School Assembly via Google hangouts (aka Google meet). Jahzara and Toby, our school Rangatahi, led us in the karakia and mihi.


This is a great way we are able to stay connected as a community during this time we are all in lockdown. Last week's assembly drew a crowd of more than 200. How many do you think took part in this week's assembly??

Remote Learning - Awards from assembly

This week, the way we do school changed. With the whole of New Zealand in lockdown for the next 4 weeks, school has gone remote! The children in room 10 are doing some amazing learning from home and have not let this change phase them!

Congratulations to our 2 recipients of awards from today's Pt England School assembly online!

What an awesome 3 days of camp we have just had! Last week, 120 year 5 and 6 children camped for 2 nights on our school field in tents! During the three days of camp, we took part in a range of fun activities which helped us learn how to work as a team and build our confidence! Here are some photos from our camp:
