Summer Learning Journey - PBS

Today Panmure Bridge School had a special assembly. We were lucky to have Rachel announce the Summer/Winter Learning Journey for 2017-2018. Rachel was followed by the Woolf Fisher Research Centre and the NEXT Foundation. Our Head Boy AJ and Head Girl Mia introduced themselves to the visitors. The Kapa Haka Group performed and the visitors were really proud of their performance. Daniel, Mele and Ofa spoke about how they have participated in the Summer/Winter Learning Journey. The SLJ program helps a lot of people with their reading because it encourages us students to read and talk about our learning more. After the special visit everyone including the visitors had a free lunch proudly donated by Eat My Lunch which was very delicious. The video above shows Daniel our Manaikalani Leader showing people how Panmure Bridge is a digital school and how we are part of the Summer/Winter Learning Journey. Thank you to the guests who visited our school:Rachel and Hazel from Woolf Fisher Research Centre,
Mr Grady who is the Chairperson for the Board of Trustees, Mrs Grant from Manaiakalani, Mr Burt Point England School's Principal, Mrs Jesson from Woolf Fisher Research Centre, Mr Sneddon who is the chairperson for Manaiakalani, Mrs Lee, and Mrs Pitchard.

Christmas in Switzerland

To celebrate Christmas we got into groups of four and worked collaboratively to find out about Christmas in different countries all around the world. My group worked on Switzerland and we found a lot of interesting things about Switzerland like how they call their Santa Samichlaus. .To show our learning we recorded our google slides using screencastify. I worked on this DLO with Jorja, Calvin, Sylis, and Lyric.

Tech at Tamaki College

This year I have been going to Tech at Tamaki College every Friday. I like Tech because it’s fun. My first activity was Food Tech. I really liked learning to cook and make yummy food. My favourite was making the quiche with Mrs Linda. I think Mrs Heka is a nice teacher.

I made a clock with Miss Ferguson. It was fun drawing my design and watching the machine cut the shape I drew on the wood. My clock was a heart shape. I painted it purple and pink and yellow. They are my favourite colours. Miss Ferguson is a nice teacher and she helped me a lot.

This term I made a stained glass picture. I think it is really pretty. It was easy to cut the glass but it was hard to get it the right size. Mr Grundy is kind and he helped me with my stained glass picture.

I have really liked going to Tech because I have learnt new skills in a fun way.

Fire Station Visit - Maata

For our inquiry we have been focusing on our community and how the Emergency Services help us.  Yesterday we were lucky enough to visit the Mt Wellington Fire Station. We began our visit with the Fire Officers speaking to us about Fire Safety. We then went outside and were shown around the Fire Truck. It was very interesting to see all the tools kept on the fire truck and learn about what some of them were used for. We were extremely lucky to get to see the firemen using the spreader and cutter tools to cut the windscreen, doors and roof off a car. This was awesome to see. Thank you to the Firemen at the Mt Wellington Fire Station for making this possible.

Police Men Police Dog

Yesterday Panmure Bridge School had a visit from the Police Helicopter. It was very exciting seeing the helicopter land on the field. It was really interesting to learn that the helicopter had a camera on the front. We were also extremely lucky to get to see the police dog and hear about the ways that the dogs help the Police. Thank you to Constable Cyrus for making this happen for us.

Maata Fireworks - Safety Rules

I have created this DLO to remind people of ways they can keep safe on Fireworks night. It shows some basic rules to follow so everyone can enjoy fireworks without getting hurt.
