This is my poster, it has some facts that I already know, and some questions, that I am curious about.
Talofa Lava & Greeting,
Here at Pt-England school it is our first day back of term 3! how amazing are we to start the term. this terms topic is based of Healthy Me Healthy You! today I will be sharing my highlights about this mornings immersion assembly!
My favourite performance from the team teachers was..........
Team 5! team 5 was a great example to us on how they showed the meaning of, Healthy Me Healthy You, there actions were based on the Tokyo Olympic 2020! on how they had three flags to represent, USA,AUSTRALIA, & NEW ZEALAND! team five teachers told us by there actions that, we are focusing on what is the mean on well-beings, and taking good care of our body.
My conclusion from the immersion assembly was that all the team teachers did a very great job, they made sure that there actions were easy for the younger children to notice. This topic gives us a good view of keeping our body healthy!

The parents of matariki are Wainui, the mother, and Tangotango the father. Matariki is a cluster of 7 stars, representing the seven sisters. Their names are Tupu-a-nuku, Tupu-a-rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipuna-a-rangi, Ururangi and Matariki. They are very energetic and they would always whizz about. They would zig zag all around the other stars. It would make Puanga, the red star, and Takurua, the blue star, very annoyed. They would complain about how the 7 sisters are moving around too much. Wainui and Tangotango overheard the complaints of the other stars and called their daughters. Wainui and Tangotango gave the 7 sisters a task to do. It was to be the sign for a new year. Now Matariki signifies the beginning of a Māori New Year, remembering our past loved ones, and celebrating our lives to come.

New batch of Covid-19 vaccines arrive in NZ
(Kiwi Kids News)
A new bundle of Covid-19 vaccines has reached New Zealand’s destination, two days ahead of schedule.
The delivery of 150,000 doses was received into Auckland Airport yesterday afternoon. The vaccines have had to travel into New Zealand and kept at ultra-low temperatures to ensure that they are safe and effective. New Zealand Covid Minster, Chris Hipkins, said the untimely arrival meant New Zealand would not run out of vaccine. We were scheduled to do so on Wednesday if the shipment had not arrived.
Minster Hipkins speaks on how one million doses were being delivered this month which meant the vaccination programme could start being renovated. The rollout plan has the general population in group 4 start getting the vaccine from late July.
Also an online booking structure will be online from 28 July and those over 60 will be invited to book from that date.
What would you do if you were vaccinated? If I was vaccinated I would first and further doings recover, or just stay isolated in my own apartment, to prevent the spreading , also being more careful towards myself, and my surroundings!
Man Wins Lottery Twice In Four Years!
(Kiwi Kids News)
Have we ever discovered the world’s luckiest man?
A US man has won one of the lottery for the second time in the last four years. Stephen Toto from Framingham City in Massachusetts, had bought a ticket at the A-1 Gulf store. The ticket turns out to be a $1 million top prize winner. Stephen Toto was already familiar with the procedure for claiming a lottery jackpot, after winning $1 million from a $4,000,000 Payout scratch-off ticket in 2017. The winner was selected for the lump sum option for his latest winnings, taking home $650,000 before taxes.
I’m trying to figure out what this lucky wise man did with this jackpot?
What would you do with a load of Jackpot? If it was me, I would share it to the homeless, also to the charity out there, along to help a few whanaus that are in need!
All Blacks v Fiji from Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin
Yesterday night on the 10th of July me and my family watched this horrific game Live on (Sky Sport), All Blacks v Fiji from Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin! This was a contented attention, that it was a very close game. Fiji was full of meke, and was prepped up to play a pastime. The All Blacks were also pretty good, their tackles were AMAZING as well: Fiji! The nine tries to three win wasn't without a scare, with Fiji
A magnificent sweep by just eight points halfway just through the second-half with a man upper hand, after the impressive David Havili was yellow carded. But suddenly a clear try by Dane Coles rolling savage mode, a try with 16 minutes to go, took the All Blacks clear and they finished stronger to complete the 34-point victory. Coles scored an beyond belief four tries on the night after coming on as a replacement for Codie Taylor in the 50th minute to spare.
This game took NEW ZEALAND a WOW! Because Fiji was an awesome play - as well as the All Blacks! Fiji laid hold of a win four me! they were just fantastic, they had a very BIG personality that showed instantly! They were strong as a rock, and were fast like a cheetah, whereas they were ready to take the win. But unfortunately they lost, but they were really impressive and were in BEAST MODE!
What makes Jacinda Ardern a great leader?
TIMER: 2m 53s
Talofa lava and warm Pacific greetings, my name is Sauma and today I’m going to be sharing my oral speech about what makes Jacinda Ardern a great leader. Let’s get started!
First and foremost, it is important to know what the meaning of a leader is. According to the Oxford dictionary, the definition of a leader is someone who leads or commands a group, organization, or country. Even though this description tells what the role of a leader includes, there are a lot of values and factors that go into being a good leader. Some of these qualities include being courageous, honest, humble and helpful. However, a stand out trait of being a good leader is having compassion.
Someone who possesses compassion in their everyday leadership is Jacinda Ardern. Jacinda Kate Laurell Arden was born on 26 July 1980. She was first elected as a member of parliament in 2008 and has since served as a politician until being made Prime Minister of New Zealand in 2017. She is the 40th Prime Minister and is the third female Prime Minister to lead the country. Throughout her reign, she has done many things to show compassion and leadership.
The first example I will discuss is Jacinda Ardern’s response to the Christchurch Mosque attack in 2019. Following the tragic event, Arden showed solidarity with the muslim community by wearing a headscarf and delivering a speech with the famous statement ‘they are us’. Jacinda’s heartfelt words while wearing the cultural attire of those who had their lives taken touched, everyone in New Zealand and all over the world. Any leader can respond to a tragedy with plans of prevention but not all leaders can show empathy and emotion. This is what makes her different.
Another example of this was her actions during the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Jacinda Ardern was one of the first leaders worldwide to enforce a strict and long nation-wide lockdown. When other leaders worried about resources and the economy, Ardern sacrificed money for the health and safety of her country. She made sure that everyone was protected and worked together. Her government also provided support for families and workers affected. This just shows that again, she puts compassion in her leadership to not only guide her country but genuinely care about her people.
Through these examples, it can be seen that leadership goes beyond just making decisions. It is about caring and serving people with a compassionate heart. When leadership combines effectiveness and empathy that is what makes a leader great. Jacinda Arden is the best example of this.
That concludes my speech today thank-you for listening.
A big thank-you to my aunt for helping me write this speech, on What Makes Jacinda A Great Leader? it was a writing competition in our literacy class through the Team 5 block, but unfortunately I was not chosen, but in the end I wanted to share my speech, and show what have our prime minister Jacinda Arden has done, I hope you all enjoyed my writing, but make sure to take a look above.

The virus that causes COVID-19 can be killed at temperatures similar to that of other known viruses and bacteria found in food. Coronavirus disease As Of (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a recently discovered coronavirus. The majority of people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment. scientists had to discover a test for China weather they wear (Mask) to prevent the pandemic, also they had to go into lockdown to prevent the pandemic spreading.Much of the high death rate can be attributed to crowding in military camps and urban environments, as well as poor nutrition and sanitation, which suffered during wartime.
