Holiday Blog (Thank you)

The last chapter of my life at Pt England School as a Year 8 student has come to an end, and it's time to finally move on to my new chapter of my life which is, COLLEGE. I want to take this time to say thank you to my teachers who have taught me throughout my years at Intermediate and Primary, and especially thanks to the Year 8's and 7's of 2018 who made my last year at Pt England the most memorable time of my life. 

Even though tears were shred at the last day of school, I hope all my fellow Year 7's and Year 8's hopefully know that I may very grateful for their love and support they have shown me this past year. Including my teachers. Thank all for making me the person who I am today, I hope I see some of you over the holidays.

Vincent Van Gogh

WALT: Justify our thinking using evidence from the text
Have you ever heard of a famous artist Vincent Van Gogh?? While this week for reading we were learning about the life of Van Gogh and his many artwork. I learned so much from this activity such as, Van Gogh's artwork wasn't valued that much when he was alive but 100 years later, a new museum was opened in honour of Vincent Van Goug in 1993 in Amsterdam where his artwork is displayed.

Paideia Seminar 2018 (Term 4)

Today the Year 7&8 extension crew had our Term 3 Paideia seminar where we came together and contributed what we learned about health and fitness from the previous term with our groups. I think I did much better job in this Paideia seminar because I contributed my ideas and my thoughts more clearly and I talked much more. One thing that stood out to me from the Paideia Seminar was that obesity(being overweight) can actually stop you from joining in sports and other active activities. 

Lady Pink

In Room 5 we learned about a famous graffiti artist named Lady Pink. For our create task we had to create a presentation or a google drawing and show what we learned about this specific artist.
