Isaac's Gifts to Pt England

We are so proud of Isaac for wining  the 2017 Year 8 Art Prize. He is an amazing painter and photographer with an eye for capturing the beauty of nature.  

We are also incredibly humbled to have received two landscapes that Isaac painted at PES in the last week of 2017. These are gifts to show the school his appreciation for its help throughout his years at Pt England.


We will miss you, Isaac and look forward to hearing about your journey as an artist as you head to Tamaki College. Good Luck!

Compressed Air Rockets!

 Over term three hundreds of rockets took off from Pt England School and flew into the skies! 

 We used PET bottles, water, a cork and air which we compressed with a bike pump. 

 We learned quickly how powerful and wet  the water-blast was so we made a blast shield and lift-off bucket. 

We also followed strict rules to make sure our safety came first!
