Athletics with Team 1

This afternoon we had our first athletics rotation with the whole of Team 1.  Room 19 got to practice their sprints, hurdles and sack racing.  We had a lot of fun in the sun today and we are looking forward to more practices over the coming weeks.

Here is a selection of photos from today's session:

Silly Hat Day

On Friday it was silly hat day at Pt England School.  Some of Room 19 made some great hats and others selected a hat from the hat box to wear.  It was great to parade over the stage during assembly and show off our hats.  Hendrix won a prize for his great hat.

The whole school with silly hats.

Some of Room 19 and their selection of hats

From today, all learners need to wear a hat in the playground to protect us from the sun, so remember:

Purua to Potae

Cricket Skills

On Friday we were able to try out cricket thanks to some great coaches from the Ellerslie Club and some of our Year 7/8 friends.  We were able to try batting, bowling and fielding skills in a series of rotations.  We had a lot of fun trying out cricket.  Check out some of what we did:

Niuean Language Week

To celebrate Niuean Language Week, at assembly on Friday the Niuean group put on a great performance.  Hendrix from Room 19 was involved and did an amazing job on stage.  All the dancers had put in time over the school holidays with their practices and they performed their hearts out on Friday.

Fakaaue lahi for such an amazing performance!

Kiwisport Football

This term for Kiwisport we are learning how to play Football.  In our first session we learnt about dribbling the ball.  It was hard for us to learn the difference between a kick and a dribble but we made some great progress.  We played a game called Rob the Nest which helped us practice our dribbling.

We are looking forward to our next session with our Football coach next week!

Welcome Aurora

Room 19 welcomed Aurora into our class at the end of last week.  She started her school journey well by receiving a certificate at team assembly on Friday.

Aye Myat also received a certificate from Room 19 for listening and following instructions quickly.  Here are Aye Myat and Aurora after receiving their certificates from Miss George.  Well done girls.
