Today I was gifted the privilege of attending this years GEGNZ (Google for Education group) Student Summit and Ormistan Junior College. The group that attended was the year 7&8 Extension group along with Mrs Langitupu. Starting the day we had a huge welcome from Ormistan Junior college and primary.
We were split in two groups as we were presenting two different workshops. My group did a scratch workshop teaching others how to create a game using coding. The other group showed and presented how we use a school network to get notices around, that is called PENN (Pt England News Network.)
There were over 400 different students from schools around Auckland and even some from down south. We had a range of different workshops like Telligami, Robotics and loads more. I even got to see my old teacher Miss Lavakula. We met her classroom and took heaps of photos.
Four students from Pt England school won prizes they were Mitchell, Simon Ana and Yvonne.
The prize range was huge! Chrome cast to smart globes. I hope to go to this event again next time.
