Graphic Design Group - Balloon Toss by Mehi, Lyric and Kahlicia


This term for Technology I am in the group Graphic Design. For Graphic Design we are creating a activity that can be used in our school playground. I am with year 7's, Lyric and Kahlicia. We all agreed to do the Balloon Toss game which is basically like a bean bag toss game but instead of having a board we would be using buckets instead. This presentation shows the considerations for our game.

Describing Myself - Kahlicia

Kia Manawanui students have started taking part in the Attitude programme and the Year 7 students had 3 sessions looking at friendship and how to be yourself. 

After hearing the students struggle to describe themselves positively, I asked each student to create a DLO and brainstorm different words that they would use to describe themself and then also to ask for words from a few of their classmates too.


Here is Kahlicia's DLO.

Investigating the history of Rugby by Marcus

Today in class we each chose a recent sport and investigated further.

Fun with the Trolley by Chardonnay



This recount is about a past experience that I experienced a few months ago. Me and my current best friend were bored during my mums shopping day so we decided to play around in the trolleys. This event happened to be a very memorable day for me and my best friend. I hope you enjoy and read the WHOLE presentation. Our WALT is to write a past experience relating to something we 'myself' did in our childhood. AKA(childhood memory.

Year 7 & 8 Girls and Boys Netball

AAIMS Eastern Zone Netball Tournament

Tuesday 4 August AMI Stadium

On Tuesday T.P.S. had 3 teams represent the school in the AAIMS netball tournament. This year we took one Year 7 and one Year 8 Girls team as well as a mixed Year 7 & 8 Boys team (that played in the Year 8 competition).


The teams were excited and nervous to be playing out our first AAIMS netball competition. The coaches were all so proud on the day, as our students showed great spirit and drive competing. 

It was a long and full on day, with between 4 and 6 games played by each team. We had some wonderful help umpiring the games and the students got a buzz from seeing such a range of skills and ability on show.  

Each team managed to secure some wins along with some loses and one draw - all the while showing our school values of "humble winners and gracious losers". I was impressed to see lots of encouragement and support for each other and students also were showing great growth mindset in keeping on trying even when it got tough, and learning from challenges and mistakes.

Check out one of the Year 7 girls reflections on the day below.
