FiaFia 2018 @ Pt England

Last week on Thursday night we held our School FiaFia for 2018. This event is held every two years at our school and is an amazing way to share our many different cultures at our school. It's also a great way for our parents, families and communities to come together. Most importantly it was another opportunity for all of our students to shine.

The movies can be viewed on our school PENN archive. Congratulations to all of our teachers and parents who tutored and managed the groups. Thanks to all of our Pt England families and friends for turning out to support even though the weather was not the best.

Here are just a few of the groups from FiaFia.

FiaFia Rehearsal 2018

On Wednesday, the day before our school FiaFia, the whole school met in the hall for our FiaFia rehearsal. We couldn't sit in front of the big marquee like in previous years due to bad weather. Luckily for us footage of the rehearsal was streamed live onto the screen in the hall. Here are some highlights from the day.

Digital Nations 2030 Experience in 2018



Our Year 7 & 8 Extension students were invited to attend the Digital Nations 2030 Summit being held in Auckland on Monday 19th February. OMGTech and Code Avengers were running a showcase for local and international visitors to see what a digital programme might look like for students.

This was an amazing experience and our students got the chance to learn to code and play with robotics and electronics. Our students also had the opportunity to speak to visitors about what they were learning. Thank you to OMGTech and Code Avengers for an awesome experience!

Fast and Furious 8 - Manaiakalani Film Festival 2017



Do you like fast cars? Have you seen any of the Fast and Furious movies? Who is your favourite character? Well the Year 7 & 8 Extension students wanted to create their own movie based on 'Fast and Furious 8'. They had a great time creating their movie and hope that you enjoy it!

Back in Da Day - Manaiakalani Film Festival 2017



Have you ever thought about what your parents did when they were kids? Life was very different back in the day. Technology has changed so much since when your parents and grandparents were kids. They didn't have access to cell phones, computers and the internet. Imagine if you had to live without technology.

Here is our Film Festival movie starring our Year 5 & 6 Extension students. It is based on their inquiry (Term 2) into how technology has changed over time and how it impacts our lives. Earlier this year they created a mini production called 'Back in Da Day'. Some of the dance footage is used in their movie. We hope you enjoy our movie!
