Tamaki College

On Friday the yr 8 students of Pt England school went to Tamaki College.
Once we got there we started to walk around the school, then we went to the school hall. The dp Principal was introducing us to the teachers that we are going to have for our activities. When the dp Principal was finished talking we went to get our stickers that had colours on them to show what team we were in. Red,  green, yellow and blue, After we got our stickers with our name and colours we went to the Tamaki colleges school field.

I was in green, The first activity my team done was called The Blindfolded Obstacle Corse. We had to walk around the poles and jump on thing and go under objects. That was terrifying and fun. Once we finished that activity we went into the basket ball court. We played octopus, and jump the hula hoops. That was tricky because you had to make it to the other side of the court with three hula hoops. You weren't aloud to go out of the hula hoops.

We went on to the next course it was called chain tiggy, you would have to tag people and chain up with them to catch everybody else. It was hard because sometimes when you're not tagged you have to keep running, and you sometimes get tired. When there is lots of people who are chained up they sometimes corner you. When we were finished we had to have lunch and morning tea. Then the fun day was over. The students of Pt England Headed back to school.

Writing About Google Expedition

Yesterday afternoon the yr8 students of Pt England School went in the the senior middle block. We lined up in our groups Tahi, Rua, Toru. Ms Tele’a was speaking to us about what we are about to do, we all were filled with excitement. But it had to be one group at a time. My group Rua went first.

Ms Tele’a gave us one Google cardboard each. There is a phone inside the special cardboard, I call the Cardboard special because there is a type of material inside of the cardboard the helps you see lots of amazing things. When you look into the special cardboard you can see all sorts of things, when you move around.

There almost like the oculus rift. When you move around it’s just like it's really there. They are very confusing, because when you're standing up and walking round you just might walk into a wall. That is why it is important to sit down while your with the gadget. The best place I thought was scary was floating outside of the tallest tower in the world.

That was amazing and scary at the same time. Pt England school is the first school to try them, We are so lucky to get to try them. If you come past one of these gadget you should probably buy one of them. I would like to try the gadget again, it is extremely fun to play with, you can go any where in the world.

One day my friend and I went to go to the Sylvia.  We went to Sylvia to buy somethings for his birthday. He took me to Mcdonalds and to The Ice Cream shop. We were looking for something that he really wanted.
He didn't get to find something he really wanted, So he bought me some food to eat it was delicious. Once we were finished shopping from Sylvia, We went back to his house to have dinner. Once dinner was finished we had his Birthday cake. It was nice.

When dessert was finished we went back out to see the Matariki light trail
It was amazing seeing lots of colorful lights around us. So Brandon and I went walking around the area where lights were. After that we went to walk close to the stage to watch the performance from the Cook Island kids they were amazing.

When the Matariki lights turned off. It was time to go home. When we got back to his house. We went straight to sleep We were soo tired. When we got up, We had to make our beds and then have breakfast. I had Weetabix and toast He had the same as me. I was still sleepy, After that we went walking around Glen Innes looking for something to do. Once we found something to do we weren't bored anymore.

We went the Internet cafe to play some games and listen to music on Youtube. When our time was up we went to Mcdonalds to buy two frozen Cokes. They were super cold but super tasty.
