GEGNZ Student Summit at Ormiston Junior College

Today the Year 7 & 8 Extension class luckily got to go to the GEGNZ Student Summit. We got to show other schools how we create the news on PENN. We got to present our speech that got given to us and also we had to memorise it. There were so many different schools there. The first thing we did was we had to go into to their auditorium and they welcomed all schools that were there.

After the big welcoming we got to go and have a break and have morning tea. After having morning tea we had to prepare for presenting, we had to walk up the stairs and get to the room that we were presenting in. I was quite nervous because I didn't know how many people were going to be there. When it was presenting time we had a small audience that turned into a big audience.

It was really fun and some of our students got prizes and I was also one of them.

Education Speech


First of all I would like to say good morning to the class and also to the teachers. Today my speech is about why all education should be free. Education is very important in schools and it also plays a very important role in our lives. In some schools kids can't afford education so then different people pay for it.The more knowledge we get, we grow and learn more in our future life. Education doesn’t only mean being good and getting certificates it means more like the people that can’t afford education there probably just self taught and won’t have any friends or even a teacher to guide them through what they're learning. That’s why we need free education for people who need it most. So my question for you is Do you think that we need free education in our schools.Image result for education

My IKAN Test

Talofa lava and welcome to my blog. My name is Ana and I go to Pt England School I am also in Tapawha, yesterday we got to sit our IKAN test. What was different is that we got to do it on our own Chromebook and we even got our own headphones. After the first test we got to sit the test again because we were just going over the questions that we haven't answered and it was actually really good sitting the test again.

When we started the test I felt nervous and kind of comfortable at the same time, I felt pressure coming in. We were finally halfway through the test my nerves we going away and then I felt relaxed. I was so happy with doing my test. At the end of the test I was proud of myself and I was also proud of all the other's that did the test with me. I had a really positive good feeling at the end.

 The next day we got to mark our test paper's. We got to look at our test papers and compare it to the answers to see which answers we got wrong and which answers we got right. I was really happy of my test answers because if I can do it so can many more people. So when you are starting test don't get nervous just be happy because you never know what your test results will be.


If I get any time to do my IKAN test again I would like to improve on my place value. On our next I will try my best and hope that I get a better result then my last IKAN test. My test scores were 6, 5, 4 and 5 I hope I can do better next time.

Space Technology

In extension I read an article about space technology and how it's helped us. I learnt that our satellite has helped us with a lot of things in so many different ways. it helps people travel and also go to different places. Satellites help us know whats going on around the world. So here is what I picked up when i read the article. Hope you enjoy reading.
Well I think that space technology has helped us with a lot of things such as TV’s, Telephones, Computers and many more. It even helps us with telephone calls and also it helps people find out what weather will be today and tomorrow. Some  satellites can help with Cars and also airplanes. This is why satellites are so important to us.  Space technology has helped us understand how Earth works and how we can keep it healthy.  

You probably wouldn’t know this but satellites have helped us understand what’s happening around our planet and it also shows and tells us how we can take care and protect our planet.                 Here is the link to the article
