AIM for success.

Today Pt England School had an unexpected encounter. The name of that person was Mr Andrew Patterson, he came to our school to talk about the year 8's future but the year 7 had to tun in and listen too because this talk was going to happen to them next year.

The first thing that I remember that Mr Patterson was talking about was that time don't slow down for anyone, and you should make the most of your time before you pass on. There was something that Mr Patterson said "My friend counts and reminds himself of how many days he has left." I also have a saying of my own, treat every day of your life like it your last and enjoy the most of it.
