Kitiona's post about

Have you ever heard of the hip hop group named the Black Eyed Peas? Last week was a very interesting week for the Point England kids because (the lead singer of Black Eyed Peas) came to our school.  He came to donate a cheque for the Manaiakalani Education Trust to help  provide the schools with  new computers and ipads for students to work with.

I felt very excited and delighted at the time because a very famous pop star came in to donate a large amount money.

So, I would like to say a big thank you to for your support and your kindness to our trust.   Hopefully in the future we can succeed in what we would like to be.

Karakia DLO

During Te Reo, all Year 7 and 8 Students have been learning our School Karakia (blessing).  Students were given a brief to create a D.L.O (digital learning object) to teach the rest of the school the karakia through P.E.N.N.  Their audience is both students and teachers and the purpose of their DLO is for the audience to be able to recite the karakia in Māori and to also gain understanding of what the karakia means.  Here is an excellent example from Kobe and Carlos! Tau kē korua!
