Year 8 - Tamaki College Experience

 On Tuesday the 28th of April, all the year 8 students from different schools around the Manaiakalani area were invited to Tamaki College to experience what college may be like. As all the school entered the Orientation area we took our seats and waited for the teachers to introduce themselves and tell us what we will be doing for the rest of the day. Everyone at Pt England school were looking forward to a day of science and all sorts of other stations.

First we were given a landyard to wear for the day so that everyone can know who you are and that you are will the school or group that is given to you. And conected to our landyards was a 8gb usb that is for us to keep and on our landyards it say "our full name first and last, our group name which is a symbol, and our school. So like for example it would say "Lizara Raupita - Tango, P RO, P.E". So once we were in our groups we followed our team leaders to our 1st station. While we were following our team leaders to our 1st station we were quite surprised about how big the school was and how hard it will be for us when we try and find our classes in 2016 when we go to college. 

We all had 5 stations to complete and our first one was maths and I love maths, so I was expecting it to be easy. The activity that we were doing was toss the coin, and what we had to do was go on this link that leads us to this toss the coin interactive activity then we have to make a chart of what we came up with. Then we went to have morning tea which was a juice and a calcium yoghurt. And after morning tea we went to science and we were looking forward to making elephant tooth paste that explodes out of the cylinder. Then we did P.E and our P.E teachers was Miss T and she was taking us to do Basketball, Soccer and Touch. But her rules was pretty interesting but at the same time it seemed really fun. Basketball has normal rules, but in soccer you had to play by doing it with your hands instead and you weren't allowed to kick the ball because than that just makes it an automatic hand over. In touch you can play normally but the 1 little tip is that you are allowed to pass the ball forward in her rules. 

Tamaki college was awesome and I would like to come here next year if I can. Hopefully they enjoyed having our company and hoping that we were on our best behavior.
