This year has been a huge 'way to go' and this has been made possible because of our AWESOME teachers. Parakai, year 8 leadership camp, rainbows' end and even visits from Andrew Patterson. This year couldn't get any better! Unfortunately this is my last year at Point England school and I wished all these events had happened sooner. All though, most of these events have a purpose to it. Such as our Year 8 camp earlier, the purpose of this was to learn, practice and take action in our leadership roles as we continue in the 2015 year. Here are a few reflections/flashbacks of my year at Point England School 2015.
Year 8/ Leadership Camp/ Term 1
Year 8 means to show what awesome looks like, be a good role model and care for our school. Earlier in term 1, team 5 had set up some cake stalls and our school had also set up a garage sale to be able to fund raise enough money for this camp (and we thank you for that!) This camp was very fun, amazing and inspiring too. We were all able to pick up on a few lessons and tips on our activities. Such as the water slide activity. Sure it looked like we were there just for the 'fun'. But we were able to co-operate and share our ideas openly and also be able to find new ways of formatting ourselves in lines to go down the slippery slide!

Tamaki College Talk Back For College / Term 2
In order to prep ourselves for college, a few students from Tamaki College surprised us with a talk about things that happen in college. We were also very lucky to be given Tamaki College enrollment forms. You can read about how I found this talk, and into more what they were talking about by reading a blog post I posted just half an hour after the talk! Shows how much I was very excited for college. http://pesjosephinef.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/tamaki-college-talk-back.html
Term 3/ Cindy In Da House
Every two or three years, Mr Jacobson and some other few teachers organize and set up a production for our school and community to see. This year, our school were able to perform an eye opening act called Cindy In Da House. Unluckily, I wasn't apart of it. But I was able to be a supporter and enjoy the amazing show!
So far this year, I was able to find myself as an independent person and be able to take huge responsibilities as a prefect. I have gained more knowledge in my leadership through out the year and I am very proud of myself. Next year I hope my teachers would be able to pick up on how a confident speaker I am. As I go off to college I hope to take these teachings , learn from my mistakes and be able to be a better person next year :)
