I-lluminate came to visit....who??? Read on...

'I-lluminate' came to visit PES all the way from America - yes, America.  Mr Burt is always reminding us you never know who is watching - so do your best. This happened when the lady from the US Embassy in NZ came on a school visit to us.  She liked what she saw so much she decided to invite her friends to come and perform for us.

Faith and The Chrysalis

Today Faith bought a surprise to school for her friends in Room 17.
We looked very carefully at the chrysalis and drew pictures in our writing books.
Then we wrote a story as a class....

The Chrysalis  

Faith bought a swan plant branch to show us.  

It has an amazing chrysalis on it!    By Room 17



Duffy Theatre Came to PES...

Leonidas meets Duffy at PES.


In the show, Duffy had an amazing time travelling machine which helped him travel back to save his friends Dad from dying in WW2. 

Room 17 tamariki said "We are so happy that Duffy helped his friend and she learnt to read. That was kind like Mr Burt said wasn't it?"
