A surprise

It was Sione's birthday and his family surprised him with his favourite, a chocolate cake with a strawberry layered filling. He got lots of presents and was so happy because he thought that everybody had forgotten about his birthday. Happy Birthday Sione, best wishes and lots of love, from Mrs. Lal and your classmates in Room 18.

He got lego books, a transformer and monster trucks.

A rich delicious chocolate cake from his mum and dad.

Here is Sione with his brothers.

Thank-You ANC

Last week Thursday whilst we were practising on the court with our team two lovely girls approached us and gave the coach and manager a big chocolate bar. Mrs Dwyer and I were quite surprised but they said it was a gift (koha) from Auckland Netball to all coaches and managers. After the game we decided to share the chocolate amongst our players and parents. The girls were super excited. We the children, managers, coaches and parents appreciate all that is being done on your behalf to ensure that the teams learn the skills of netball but most importantly PLAY and have FUN.

From -The Sparkles
Pt. England School.

The Beekeeper

I can see a beekeeper. The beekeeper made a hive for the bees. she like to make honey. By YiYi.

Yesterday we had our first netball game for the Year One girls. They played against Sylvia park. The girls played really well and had a good game. We are so proud of all of them. Maddison got player of the day. She kept her feet glued to the ground when passing and with the help of her team mates she managed to score a goal.
Maddison was very happy.
Well done you!
