Niue Language Week 2017.

To finish of Niue Language week for 2017 the Pt England Niue group prepared an item to share with the whole school for the special occasion.

Before they started Mrs Langitupu and a couple of students that knew how to speak fluent Niue did their introductions, and once they were finished a very popular Niue song come on and the Niue group started to sway and dance to the music. The girls were leading the dance while the boys were at back, all of the girl's looked like Niue Princess and the boys looked like Princes. To finish of the dance the Boys came to the front and began to do the Niue Haka.

When they dance was finished and were were heading back to their seats everybody could tell they were proud Niue kids and most parents had tears in their eyes. They all were proud of their Cultural, and the Niue theme for this year was:The Niue Language is the heart of Niue People.

Statistics and Probability


WALT: Use probability vocabulary to describe chances of an even.
To start of Term 4 Mrs Tele'a created a presentation about Statistics and Probability for Tapaono. In this presentation we were given questions of probability. For Example: What is the possibility of see a flying dog?", and we had to find out the answer for these questions. This presentation has helped me improve my thinking about Statistics and Probability much more.

Immerson Assembly

Term 4 has started and at the conor of Glen Innes Point England school were having their Immerson Assembly to start of the new term. Our new Theme for this term was Musical Madness!

To kick of the Assembly we had a surprise Performance by Mr Burt, Mrs Nua, Mr Sommerville, Mr J and Mr Wise man singing their new song called Musical Madness Saves the Day. Each teacher had an instrument to play, Mr J had his little trumpet, Mr Burt had his guitar Mrs Nua had a Tambourine,  Mr Wise man was on the Bass and Mr Sommerville was rocking it out on the drums.

The next performance was Team 1. In their performance they were playing cards while different kind of music were playing in the playground and they also showed different emotions towards the music. For Team 2 Miss Gaston was the lead singer who was playing the ukulele and singing the song Lion sleeps Tonight, while different teachers came and joined her. The first teacher was Miss Peck who was playing a Castanet, Mrs Tomahai came on stage playing a Xylophone and the last teacher to join was Miss Nalder who was playing the bongos.


Team 3 was next they played a movie where they lip sync songs like: Sorry, Work, Cake by the ocean, Chandeliar, and many more and they were also doing songs in real life. Team 4 did something similar but they were doing they songs in the car like Carpool Karoke, and at the end of the movie it said Make car rides more fun. Team 5 was the last to preform they performance was having a family movie night while watching lion king while differnt songs played in the playground like: Let it go, Roar and many more. My favourite part about team 5 item was when Let it go was finish playing Mrs Tele'a said: "Don't let the baby go" which made everyone laugh.

 My top 3 team's was Team 3, 4 and 5 because they had creative movies and performance and made me laugh and made me have a good time.

What is MMP?

Have you ever wondered what MMP means? While now you got the answer,MMP actually stands for:  Mixed Member Proportional.

In New Zealand, we vote using the MMP voting system and each voter gets two votes, one vote is for a Party and the other one is for a candidate, but only the people that have New Zealand citizenship and people that doesn’t have any criminal sentences can vote.

There are 120 seats in the Parliament, and each party needs the majority of 61 or more to win, right now National is in the lead with 58 seats while Labour has 45 seats. In New Zealand right now New zealand First has a very big decision to make about who to work with National or Labour?

So in New Zealand right now the leader of New Zealand first is talking to each leader of Labour and National to see what their Policies are and what their plans are for New Zealdn.So what do YOU think should Winston Peters(Leader of New Zealand First) work with Labour or National?
