Walt: Take care of little things in our writing.

I guess you're wondering what PB stands for, no not peanut butter this PB stands for ‘Personal Best’. Last Friday we had our final annual School Athletics Day (for the yr 8s). All the seniors had their mind on only one thing. To achieve their personal best in each activity. I have just 3 simple steps so you can achieve your personal best no matter what!

First, make sure you practise practise practise. Without practising before the big day your body will be unfamiliar with the amount of movement so fast. It’s better to prepare your body for some certain activities as well like, sprints, high jump, javelin, shot put etc. These things will require more movement so it’s best to practise them more.

Another very important step is to make sure you make the most out of your day. Being my last year I know that these are very important Last memories of our (yr 8s) year. Make sure to dress up and have fun with your costume. Getting there is the hard part, am I right? Your dreading one activity the most. Try to have as much fun as you can because before you know it the day will be over.

My last step for you all, Focus on yourself and Participate. It doesn't matter whether your racing the fastest person in the school or playing tug-o-war against the strongest girl. Focus on yourself and try your hardest to achieve a new personal best in every activity. Participate even if you know you won't make it, try your best. Do everything with a smile!!

I hope you've learned a little bit about how to achieve your PB (Personal Best). Following these three simple steps you should be able to have the best Athletics Day, well at least for you personally. From experience you'll have massive fun!

Our Game and Mission:
You are to complete an explanation of how you can achieve your 'Personal Best' during school athletics day! Each of you will start on 100 points. For every silly mistake I find in your finished writing will cost you 5 points. Every person with a score 75 or higher will receive a prize from me at the end of the week!

Wish Me Luck!

Coming to you.. Streaming for more than 10 years!

It's streamed for over 10 years. This year almost 100 films made. It's the Manaiakalani Film Festival!!! This is an annual Manaiakalani cluster event. 12 schools from around our community. Each class creating their own movies. Last Wednesday teams 4 and 5  travelled to the sylvia park movie theatre to attend the Manaiakalani Film Festival. My favourite movie streamed was called 'Ask Your Aunty' it is about a group of aunties on a tv show giving advice to children with simple problems. I'm very happy to be attending Tamaki College next year as I will still have the chance to make more manaiakalani movies. Although I have 5 more years this was my last PES Film Fest movie, I'm sad but happy. I'm also ready for the next movies!!
