Polyfest 2015 Gift Bags

Waiting to receive a Black ASB gift bag, I was full of curiosity. “I wonder what is in there” I thought to myself. I watched all the other students draw objects out of their bags. My classmates and I were at the 2015 Polyfest collecting ASB gift bags. Finally I was given a bag by one of the generous female ASB workers. I politely thanked her.

I assumed there was something like stickers etc, but the bag contained a small sized ASB bottle of sunscreen, an ASB water bottle, an ASB hackey sack, a pair of ASB sunglasses and an ASB sun hat. This is an amazing act of kindness, acknowledging a vast amount of students by giving each and every one of them an ASB gift bag that had all sorts of different things in it.

I'd like to thank ASB for providing all these gifts, although not many people thanked them. I would like to say a big thank you for everything you have done. I am truly grateful.

2015 Polyfest

Polyfest 2015 has arrived and Pt England Intermediate is lucky enough to receive the opportunity to visit it. We were all super excited as this is the first time a Pt England Class had visited the Polyfest as a group.

The Polyfest is an annual event that takes place in Manukau. This is a vast festival full of food and culture. The Polyfest has been going for 40 years! It was created to help students express and learn more of their culture.

A big surprise that happened during our visit is that the wonderful John Key the prime minister of our beautiful country aotearoa, payed a visit. It was great seeing the prime minister at the Polyfest.

We also received plenty of free gifts. Such as Sunglasses, Hats, Wristbands, A 4min Hourglass, Sunscreen, Breakfast Crackers, Coconut Milk, ASB Bags, Water Bottles and Lollipops. These are a lot of gifts. Although some of these gifts are very unusual we were all happy.

In conclusion I loved our year 7&8 trip to Polyfest. I would like to say a big thank you to all the parent helpers and others for attending the trip and supervising us. We are all very grateful as without you we would not be able to go to the trip.

Miss Peato's Birthday

Mr Wiseman was slowly strumming his brown guitar while Miss Peato was still talking! “Why is he doing that, how rude” I thought to myself. Suspiciously he started walking towards the Green room. All of a sudden Mr Wiseman kicked the Green room door wide open. One by one out come the rest of the team 5 teachers.

With extra enthusiasm the teachers sing happy birthday to Miss Peato. Miss Clark was recording it all on her phone, Miss Moala was holding a nice looking cake and the rest where playing different instruments in tune with the song. “Ohh now I understand, it is her birthday” I said. Everything made sense.

It was Miss Peato’s birthday that day. The Pt England yr7&8 students began singing along. The cake had one candle on top and it was also covered with white icing. I think that is a nice surprise. It really made Miss Peato feel part of the PES family.

The Beach

Staring out the window at the clear blue ocean as it crashed onto the sand. The sun shone brightly on the wave making them twinkle like stars up it the sky. I was super excited. It was a beautiful Saturday evening and my mother and I were on our way to the beach. We always visit different beaches in the weekends to avoid boredom.

“Here is a nice spot” my mum said while parking the car.
“Finally” I replied impatiently.
We were driving around in search for a shady place to sit for hours. I hopped out of the car and stretched. My legs were aching, I had been seated in the car for too long. We then began unloading the car and setting everything up. e.g Preparing the food and spreading the picnic blankets.

We finished setting up and began eating. I was starving! Opening the food container there was a vast variety of food I could eat. I spotted Chocolate, Chicken Nibbles, Chips, Fruit, Dip, Bread and drinks (Water and Spirit). I had made up my mind, I wanted to eat Chicken Nibbles. I began eating it one by one. Until I realize that they we all gone. I had eaten all of the Chicken Nibbles. Once my mum saw that I had eaten all of the Chicken Nibbles she was shocked.

I then began playing on my IPod. I open the application Crossy Road. Crossy Road is a unique game. The aim of the game is to control your character to succeed in crossing the busy roads. It is an addictive game. The fun thing about it is that you can change your character to nearly whatever you want.

I extremely enjoyed the time I spent with my mum at the beach and wish to do it once again. In conclusion I think that the beach is an amazing place to visit if you wish to get closer to family or friends or even just to relax.
