The Treaty Of Waitangi by Mya and Sapphire.

On February the 6th 1840 there was a contract between the maori and the british people. William hobson brought the contract from britain on behalf of Queen Victoria. One of the maori chiefs signed the contract.

What it was like when the treaty was being signed?
before the treaty was signed people were arguing about what will happen in the future, and what the treaty will bring. It took months for the moari chief to decide if they sign it

What the treaty means for us at school?
Without this treaty pakeha and maori will start a war. but don’t forget there's more different kind of cultures out there who knows what will happen this might be the time for a catastrophe.

The Point England Way.

The Pt england way is our main quote, besides better together and tiaki taonga. it means to be kind, safe, happy and to learn. Its a way to say that we always do the right thing!

it was created in 2001, which was about..13 years ago! Miss meleisa helped alot with writing that quote. many other teachers that I don’t know helped to write the quote.

The purpose of it is to always do the right thing, like chucking your trash in the bin, treating everyone with respect and playing in the right place. It helps everyone learn, behave and it makes everyone happy.
