Laser Cut Earrings Design.


Fiafia Earrings Design with Google Draw 

Our Year 5 and 6 students are designing earrings that reflect their culture to cut out using our laser cutter. They will have the chance not only to take them home but to sell them at our Fiafia night.

These earring ideas reflect the Muslim heritage and interests of one of our students. We can only use two colours in this design process. Red tells our machine to cut and cut, and black tells it to engrave or draw.

Those people trashing our oceans should watch out, they don’t know what’s coming to them. Remember kids, pick up your rubbish before the King of the Monsters gets grumpy…

Preparing the Garden for Active Families

This year Makerspace and Tāmaki Wrap we are partnering with Sport Auckland! 

Pt England have students and whānau taking part in Sport Auckland's Active Families programme. We are helping by sharing one of our raised garden beds and starting a Pt England Mahi Māra Gardening Club.

Our first job is to prepare the garden. Over the hot, dry summer holidays the soil dried up so we are going to replace it with healthy compost from the EcoMatters trust. 

Volunteers from Room 1 and across the school have been working every day to loosen and remove the hard soil- it's hot, hard work but together we are getting there- Kia Pai te Kotahi!
