Pt England - Live Stream

Yesterday Glenbrae school went to Pt England to watch there Live Stream. It was a good day to perform the production because it was sunny. 

When we arrived we went inside to there auditorium and waited until they were ready to perform, it was there first time performing with there costumes in front of an audience. The play they performed was written by students at Pt England. It was about 4 bugs that went around the world looking for a place for Tuna to stay because she had the flu and the river was filled with rubbish, Taniwha was the one transforming them from one place to another. 

After they discovered places they went back to the river where Tuna was staying and told her the news, the 4 bugs told Tuna to stay there and they will clean it up. They all cleaned up and everyone from the places they went to came and helped them clean up. At the end they performed a song and dance, everyone who was placed in the production came out and danced. Then one student from our school came up and said a thank you for your wonderful production.  

Glenbrae school enjoyed there production because it was a musical and it was based on the world. We all hope to go back and watch another production written by Pt England because it was funny and creative. We enjoyed your Live Stream Pt England.

Brushing our Teeth

Brushing our Teeth
Brushing our teeth involves a toothbrush and toothpaste, it also helps with our hygiene. We brush our teeth twice a day so we kill all the bacteria on our teeth and we don’t have bad breath.

We need to brush our teeth so we kill all the bacteria and we don’t have bad breath. Bad breath is caused by the bacteria, the bacteria poops on our teeth and causes it to smell even more. Bacteria can also cause health problems like Toothaches, it would leave you in pain and you’ll have to go to the dentist before it gets worse.

We brush our teeth with a Toothbrush and Toothpaste. There is different kinds of toothbrushes like hard, medium and soft. There is different types of toothbrushes because some teeth require a type of toothbrush. There is also different kinds of toothpaste like colgate and sensodyne, sensodyne is used for sensitive teeth.

Everyone brushes there teeth twice a day, in the morning and at night. We brush it in a circular motion so we get everywhere in our mouth and so there’s no bacteria left. You could also brush your tongue with the bottom of your toothbrush and remember to floss.

Our teeth gets dirty from all the bacteria that grows in our teeth. Your teeth will stay dirty for as long as you don’t brush it, it will become yellow or black from the food you eat and drink. Some teeth might fall out because the bacteria grows on your teeth and goes to your gums which will use force to pull out the tooth.

We have to brush our teeth daily and look after our teeth so they don't rot and stay healthy.

Camp_Pompallier Mission House

On 22 August 2017, Glenbrae year 7 and 8 students had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Pompallier mission house as a part of our school camp.
As soon as we arrived at the Pompallier house our Tour guide Julie introduced us to the Pompallier house. Julie told us all the history and stories that are held in the Pompallier house then she took us into the Print room. In the print room there was big tools for pressing down the words and there was other tools for the printer.

We then went outside and she showed us the Tannery. The tannery was full of leather pieces, they would take it out and would place it on a rack to dry then they would take it upstairs and cut it or place it on a book as cover. We then saw long cubes with letters on the top of them and that’s how they would print books back in the day. They would also use ink to make pictures for the books and they would put it on a rack to dry, there also was a hole in the floor which they use to use for putting things down stairs if they were really busy they would pass it on down stairs to people who worked in the printing room.

The next room we went into was a room full of Leaves, Books, Paper scraps and Tools. There was a clear box full of books with leather covers and there were leaves on them. There was a window open for fresh air because sometimes in the room they could be dusty and you can look out to the beautiful ocean. Julie told us all the things that the workers use to do back in the day and they all had very hard and busy jobs to do.

We then went into the room next door that had machines with torches we could shine on the letters to see what it says and it was all facts and history that was held in the pompallier mission house and everything that happened there. After a few minutes we ended that all off with a huge thank you to Julie for showing us around the house and then we sang Hallelujah.

We all had a fun experience because we've never visited the pompallier mission house and we all learned heaps of facts and history about the house and what happened to French when they were working there.


On 24 August 2017, Glenbrae year 7 and 8 students had the wonderful opportunity to sail on a catamaran at Russell as a part of our school camp.

We arrived at the Russell beach, we met Luke and Rachel who owned the Barefoot sailing adventures boat. As we were getting on the boat we had to take our shoes off because it was a barefoot boat. Once we found us a seat we had to put on life jackets and stay put because it was going to be a bumpy ride.

We went sailing around the open sea and mountains, we also saw 4 dolphins and a blue penguin the most smallest and sweetest penguin ever. We took videos and photos of the animals we saw then started sailing for a few hours. After a few hours of sailing we came amongst big waves and heavy rain. We all put on our raincoats and we weren't allowed to sit on the edges because it was a bumpy ride.

While there were big waves they turned off the boat and let the waves and wind move us so Luke took down the sails and let the waves ride us. Once the wind came back he put the sails back up and turned the boat back on and we started sailing again.

They then turned the boat around and started sailing to the Waitangi treaty grounds our destination. We then had to stay put for a few more hours because it was a long ride to get to the waitangi treaty grounds so we all played games and then the Explorer boat came by and they were waving to us.

Once we got the waitangi treaty grounds Rachel threw a chain in the water so the boat doesn’t float away when everyone gets off. Once we landed everyone grabbed their bag and took off our socks because we were walking on water and wet rocks. We then took a photo with Luke and Rachel and then thanked them for this amazing adventure with them. We then walked up to the footpath and put our shoes on then went to the Waitangi treaty grounds.

I had an awesome experience with sailing because i’ve never been sailing before. I enjoyed sailing and seeing the awesome sea-animals. Sailing was fun because i got to bond with people i barely communicate with and with my friends. I look ford to going sailing sometime again in the future.
