How to be a Successful Point England Student

Do you know how to be a successful Point Englander student? I am going to explain to you why and how to be a successful Point England student. Being a successful student is important to people. It is good to use it wherever you are.

Trying your best- Trying your best means when there is something you can’t handle or can’t do you just have to try your best. For example if the teacher says go and work on your maths and the person thinks they can’t do it he thinks again that he could try his best. Trying your best also means giving 100 percent in everything you do and not giving up.

Using your manners- At school people always use their manners when they are with the teacher or some where else. For example if someone needs a rubber they can just ask like this, May I please use your rubber for a minute.   

Ignoring- Ignore means when somebody says something mean to you, you just ignore it or talk about it. For example if you walk past someone and they swear to you just ignore or tell the teacher on duty. It is important to ignore because if you don’t it will might start a fight.

Conclusion: Strive to succeed

Our school has a song called strive to succeed and I will write it but a little bit. The world is waiting for us to show the seed thats in our soul success is growing deep within our faith has made us bold. That song was written by Mr Jacobson but he is a tall man.

Use my brain, use my heart, I'm going to be cybersmart

Use my Brain, Use my Heart, I’m going to be cyber smart.  Have you ever heard of these special words before? Those special  words are one of our school korero words. I’m going to explain to you what this means in our school.

Use my brain: Use my brain helps me to think about what I say and do to others first. It means thinking ahead. Here is a good example if you have a chain email or a doggy mail screenshot it and send it to the teacher.

Use my heart: When I think about using my heart that means I should do my best at everything that I do.I need to give 100 percent on what I do

Audio and voice recording >>
Here is my paragraph. Look and see where I have put the correct punctuation marks.

“Oh man I don't want to go back to school”. The term holidays flew by so quickly and just when I was having fun. The first week was spent sleeping in, cleaning and doing chores. But the best part was going to Rainbows End for night rides!
