Polyfest - making history!

History has been made at Pt England school. You’ve heard of Polyfest, right? On Thursday, the 19th of March 2015, the year 7’s and 8’s went there. Mrs Tele’a had enrolled in us in a competition that involved 5 schools. Everyone could not wait.

And so yesterday, we got onto the bus. We were going to Manukau, so it was quite a way to go. In the bus you could hear chatter, singing and laughter. That might’ve been the reason the cars were going so quickly.

After a while, we entered the parking lot. Just by looking around you could tell that Pt England wasn’t the only school there. After signing in, we went over to ASB’s ‘The Cube’, and waited for the other 4 classes to come.

ASB, being kind, had already set up a rotation for us. Each class would go around doing different activities until Morning Tea. Our classes first activity was going to the Glo-bug stall. We were quizzed about energy use, before getting given a 4 - minute timer. It is to be used in the shower, as a 4 minute shower saves lots of energy.

Next station was a tennis station held by ASB too. It was to see who could hit a tennis ball at the fastest speed. The record for that day was 111 km/ph for the girls, and 120 km/ph for the boys. The world record was a whopping 236 km/ph! After 2 tries, I reached an average of 105 km/ph.

Morning tea soon arrived. We sat down in front of the stage to eat before going onto our next activities. I liked all the stalls. AUT university told us that they are doing 3D printing and game creating. The radio station Flava got us to pose while they take photos.

Later, ASB gave us all a bag, cap and sunglasses. You could tell that everyone was happy. We sat down for lunch, before going around in our groups. So much fun.

At around 2:15, we got together before going back to school. Polyfest was one of my favourite school trips ever. I hope I can go there again.

    I enjoyed reading your work. One part of your story made me laugh. Looks like you guys had a busy and exciting day. I've been to the Polyfest just once and the atmosphere was really nice. Look forward to reading more posts...
