Tech At Tamaki College

I was filled to the top of my head with excitement because today was the day of our very first time experiencing "Tech at Tamaki College"!!

We all gathered up in the courtyard and before we left Mrs Nua explained a few rules and we were off. We had finally arrived, had a little talk and we went our separate ways, prior to that moment we were parted into 3 groups, I was in group 2. My group was sent off to the hard materials department with Mr Grundy (-sir.)

There were 2 other activities which were cooking and graphics. I think that most people would've liked to be in the cooking department!! But in hard materials we weren't so lucky because we didn't do anything exciting, we just pretty much did nothing but listen to Sir talk about safety. Of course this was all for a good cause, because if he did all the talking today then there was no need for him to talk next week.

So all in all I think I had a pretty good first time experiencing what it was like to be a year seven doing tech!!!!

Back to school in the new year of 2010

Pt England school hasn't changed except for the fact that it now has an intermediate!!!! What is so great about Pt England having an intermediate is that I am amongst the very first students of Pt England Intermediate and I don't have to go to another school.

We've got some new uniforms and even some new desks. The only thing that's missing is our classes, we're just in the rooms of 5 and 4 for now until our new classes are built.

I'm glad that we're back at school because now I can play with all of my friends. Its Like a whole new start because I've got a new teacher (Not really, I've had her before) who's name is Mrs Nua, and I'm in a new classroom (again, not really).

I look forward to the different kinds of activities we will get to do now that we're Year 7's. For example we will get to do Tech at Tamaki College and we will get to have better camps.

I can't wait until all that stuff happens!!!!
