Tech

Today LS2 went to Tamaki College for tech. We had our new rotations and they are art, stained glass windows and cooking. The year eights are doing stained glass windows with Mr Grundy. We have started to draw our design and colour them in. Near the end of our session we spent a little time learning how to cut glass. I can't wait to see what my design will look like when I have finished it.

A Day At Tamaki College

Today the year eights from Panmure Bridge School stayed at Tamaki College for a day to experience what it would be like if we decide to go there. First we had technology as normal. We were doing stained glass windows with Mr Grundy. After that we had morning tea. Tamaki College was really kind and provided morning tea and lunch for us. Our first class was Maths and our teacher was Mr Jones. We played a game called Battleships. After that we headed off to Science where we did some cool experiments using static electricity. Our teachers were Mr Stoddard and Mr Singh. Then it was lunch time. We had Subway for lunch. Four of our students who showed the Tamaki College values got a $5 dollar tuck shop voucher. I got a voucher for showing Responsibility. Our next class was English and our teacher was Mr Stevenson. Their we had to look at some words carefully and memorise them. We then had to write them down on a document and find images of the words. Our last class was P.E. Our teacher was Mr Moyes. We played a game of Turbo Touch. I had a really fun day and I would like to give a really big thank you to everyone who looked after us at our time there.
