Polyfest Highlights 2015

For the first time in the history of Pt England School, the year 7's and 8's had gone to the Polynesian Festival 2015. Another way of saying it is, Polyfest. We all arrived at the Polyfest with 4 buses. Us, year 7 and 8's had the most amazing opportunity to go because we were 1 of the 5 schools that were chosen out of 20! So we were very lucky to be the first Pt Englanders to go on an awesome trip to Polyfest. It was actually a good time to go because it was there 40th anniversary!

So before I start my highlights, I would love to say a big THANK YOU to all the parents who had made a big decision to come and join us for Polyfest or go to work. If it wasn't for all you, we would of not attended Polyfest 2015. Thank you for even buying us food. So thank you again for your kind and loving help.

The highlight of the day for me was when my group played Jenga in one of the stalls. In my group our parent helper was Anas dad, Mr Vaafusuaga. I was in a group with Ana, Angelina, Promiseland and Taakai. The record for the day for the game Jenga was 30 stacks high. Each of us had turn to take one block out. We were so close to the record but when it got to 28th stack, it all fell down. Overall it was great because all of us were working together and trying to not make the stacks of blocks fall.

I cannot wait until I am a year 9 because I would join the Samoan group for Polyfest 2016. Polyfest was so enjoyable to watch, but soon I won't only be watching, I might be performing on the stage. It'll be so fun to perform because your not only there to dance in your cultural group, you also learn more about it. Polyfest 2015 was an amazing experience, maybe on 2016, the next year 7's and 8's could go and watch again.

  1. Malo lava Jordenne! Having read this post after a number you wrote last year I think your writing has improved. This a well detailed recount that includes your thoughts and feelings about this special event. I have no doubt that you will perform in such an event as you are a talented performer and it's something you love to do! It's great that you acknowledged the parents as you're right - we really couldn't have gone without their presence. Well done Jordenne, a very good recount!
