Celebration Of Excellence

Last night we had our Celebration of Excellence, it was a hit! Lots of parents came and supported us even if their child didn't win something they still were proud. It was a surprise for some kids because it was their first certificate. Here are some comments from some of the people that got certificates and trophies,
"it was really exciting for me because it was my very first certificate in 4 years" JD

"I was really anxious when I heard my name I got up and felt really proud that I won a
trophy for my first time and when I got my certificate from my teacher Miss Cheeseman had just finished calling my name and then I saw it on the screen" Ezrah

"When I got a certificate I felt like I was going to faint" Michael
"I feel so proud for myself that I achieved an amazing award for so long!" Gene

"I feel so proud to get a certificate because I have never ever had one before and it was awesome too" Dahria

The 5 categories of certificates were sports, Summerland Spirit, Creative Thinking, Academic and Personal achievement. By the end of the night everybody was tired but really proud and happy.

Pt Erin pools!

On the 8th of December the Pods Anawhata, Karekare and Piha went to Pt. Erins pools. There was a big spa pool that was nice and hot. One of the slides had a really long drop into the water. There was a deep end of the pool you had to do a swimming test to be able go on the diving bords and the big slides. There also was two diving boards. A big one and a small one, when you go up onto the big diving board it feels like you are very up high in the sky. It was funny when Megan got a tan and it looked like she was wearing togs! When you get in the pool it feels like you are in a freezer we had an awesome time and it didn't rain. We had loads of fun we really enjoyed it.

This video features all the things that I have done this year. While making this video I learnt a whole lot off things like how to add music, how to make it look more funky as it plays. I also learnt how to draw lines, and I learnt how to make hyperlinks. This video tells you about my year, what I've done and what new things I've learnt this year.


Lynette's 2009 Yearbook!



This Keynote slideshow is showing what was the year like for me. When I was learning how to make this I learned how to get shapes and write in them, change the colour of objects, making hyperlinks, copy things from the internet like when I want a picture I go to the full-size and command control shift 4. It was really awesome doing this because I had fun and I learned very useful information.
