20 Things Pt Englanders Should Say More Often.

In response to Kid President's latest clip about 20 Things We Should Say More Often - Room 15 made their own version for Pt England. This group put a nice spin on the idea by including some of their brothers, sisters and cousins.

The Swap - Manaiakalani Film Festival



Gloria, Kaycee and Tyla began writing the story for this movie back in May. Originally the story involved many characters with intertwined stories. It was really quite elaborate. Upon storyboarding the shots, the girls discovered that we needed far longer than 3minutes to be able to tell the complete story. Therefore, we decided to cut back the story to simply two of the characters but maintain the intertwined storyline as best we could.
The most fun part was certainly choosing songs to be able to convey the message and tell the story - we hope we did a good job.
Because of really clear storyboarding, filming was a breeze - not to mention having great actors in Isara and Tyla.
Editing really was the trickiest part of the whole process. After saving every fourth frame of the filming, importing the jpegs to Hyperstudio, they built an animation around each scene. This became quite confusing and certainly time consuming. The girls had to think really carefully about the scenes, the animation and the message.
Eventually each animation was imported into iMovie and the story began to take shape.
The whole process of putting together this movie was long and involved, but Miss King is super proud that we were able to tackle this new technique in movie making.

Safer Journeys - Walking to School

Pt England Safer Journeys from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

When looking at road safety, the kids in room 15 knew that concentrating on walking was a good idea as most Pt Englanders live within walking distance of school. Studamyer, Jesiah, Potaua and Rocky made this movie to enter the Mix and Mash Awards. They received a commended prize.

During our literacy time the whole intermediate school has been having the opportunity to get creative with their writing tasks. This week Room 15 had the chance to turn our writing into fantastic movies. This movie by Isara, Rocky, Jabez and Jesiah certainly captured the audience's attention at our Friday showcase. Great job boys.

Making Bread

We were lucky to have a fabulous experience where we actually got to make our own bread.
It was fun watching the yeast do its work, kneading the bread as well as eating of course!

Share it Maybe

Our favourite part of learning most definitely has to be sharing our creations. Does this song say it all?

Happy TV

What have you done today that made someone's day more awesomer?
Room 15 decided to share some happiness and joy with the kids and teachers at Pt England today.
We had been working for sometime on a concept where Pt Englanders had the opportunity to share simple stories of good news with their community.
What unfolded as we discussed happiness, joy, empathy, sharing and building community, was the idea of a happiness flash mob.


We only hope that you enjoy our movie and perhaps focus on those simple happy moments with your family, friends and classmates.

Pt England Rap Stars










The brief was to write encouraging lyrics for an existing tune that already had an uplifting or motivational chorus.

Room 15 quickly got down to business and wrote some great lyrics and then recorded them on our ipads. Filming the MTV added an extra element of planning and fun to our task.

We hope you enjoy these 3 movies.
