Newspaper article about the new uniform.

WALT: use the structure of newspaper articles to write my own article.

What’s cool at Pt England school?

Pt England - Louis

The Point England senior school,  are not just cutting edge with their work, they are also leading fashion with their jackets.

The intermediate kids  sport black zipper jackets with a read line that runs across the sleeves which also the school logo embossed on the jacket. But the seniors also have an optional choice which is whether they want to wear a hat.

The seniors  at Pt England school think that there uniform is amazing.  Ms Flavell the clothing administrator says  “It just so that you can distinguish the senior children from everybody else.”

But all this may seem exciting but also expensive. The jackets are expensive they are $55, and some girls may have trouble buying their jackets because  they also pay for there culottes which are $56 and $10 extra dollars for their hats which comes to a total $121 . But on the other hand boys only pay $65 for the jacket and there hats.

Let the games begin

Finally, the Commonwealth games have begun, the crowd roared like fierce lion’s as response to  the dancers dancing enthusiastically.My perspective is the opening ceremony was fatal horror with corny music,and weird dance moves, no child would ever dare to talk about this event again.For this was the perfect nightmare.

But the Commonwealth games are not all horrific events, there is one specific event that will blow your mind,  it is called Rugby. Some people may not know the famous history of rugby or who invented the games, but you will be astounded to know the New Zealand rugby sevens team are going to the Commonwealth games.

Rugby seven’s was invented in Melrose in a small town in Scotland. This games is a shortened version game of rugby union. There are seven players in this game, and you play for 15 minutes,wait what 15 minutes I can’t even run 10 minutes. Anyway when your score a try it is worth 5 points and a conversion is worth 2 points.

Some people may have a favourite sport that they love well the one sport that I think is the best is weight lifting. I think this is one of the most important sport because it just rely on the physicality of the competitor but you also have to trained mentally, I don’t mean they are mental I mean that they concentrate on the task ahead.

Overall I think the Commonwealth games could be improved,Like they could have cancelled the opening ceremony, but apart from that I think this could be one of the best Commonwealth games that has ever existed.
