Camp reflection

It was a bright sunny day in  shafts-bury St but all was quit  apart from house number 46. I was no ordinary day at no. 46 in fact it was a very special day for the youngest daughter. She had been waiting for this day and it was finally here “School camp” she shouted whilst doing a happy and very funky dance. “Brigitte be quite” shouted her mum “You will wake the whole house up”. I remember being so excited that I wanted to leave at 5 am but that was far from happing. I just had to wait until it was time to finally leave and boy that was exciting.

As they loaded my towering suitcase onto the bus I could almost feel sparks shooting up my body.” Hey “one of the girls said to me “Are you excited”? I asked myself do I really have to answer that ? ” Of coarse I am”!!!!

20 mins later

We were all talking and getting hyped on the way to warrantable apart from one man at the back of the bus . zzzzzzzzzz snort snort he was sleeping already!! But instead of help the situation two girls decided to play musical cameras and pass the photo of him sleeping around to every single Pearson. I must admit it was pretty funny but also got the whole bus to crack up in laughter.

Our first stop was the very moment that I realized my nectarine had been squished to death and died all over my new bag.It was also the aboriginal centre. were we learnt about bush tucker and got to throw a boomerang.  We also had a guided nature walk through the tribe lands of the wanderer people. It was very interesting and a very great learning experience because I got to experience the difference between old times and new times. As it was a very special day in modern history as the one direction album had been newly released and I already missed listening to the overpowering sounds of midnight memories (the album)

This trip to the Narana Creations really reminded me of a trip we to to flagstaff hill. Flagstaff hill is another olden times venue that we visited. Flagstaff hill taught us about the olden times of Victoria Melbourne. It was really interesting my favourite part was the lazor light show the lazor light show was so cool because all the people in the front row got wet by the water fountain.

By this time we had already been settled into our cabins and we had stayed for roughly  one night. Unfortunately there was no hope in hell that i was getting sleep that night night. We had a girl named Madeline in our room and she was making noise the whole night some was zzzzzzzz another was ppppppp and finally ssssssssssssssss. It was so hard and after the trip down and all the activity’s we had done already I just wanted to have some rest. So I face planted my head into my pillow, blocked my ears, and finally I got to sleep.

My favourite activity was when we got to make our own kites. My kite was a tree branch with leaves and two birds on the top of the branch. We made our kites with permanent text as. Finally when we got back to school and we got to fly our kites.

So that’s basic my favourite moments of camp and i cant wait until we go to a camp next year.

National Tree Day

http://planetark.org/

On Friday the 26/7/13 it was School Tree Planting Day. School Tree Planting Day is were all the primary schools across Australia each plant some trees in there school to help involve  nature in our every day life. At our school every class planted a tree and looked after there own to take part in the activity.

On Monday the 22/7/13 every class dug a hole for there tree to be planted in. Everybody got to dig one scoop of the hole to feel that they were part of the activity. We decided to plant our tree furtherest away from all the others because we wanted to give it lots of room to gracefully grow from a little plant to a big tree.

I really enjoyed this activity because it meant that we could all plant our own trees without having to go by anyone’s rules. I also liked it because it got everyone out and about in the sunshine and fresh air. I think it would be really cool if high school students got this opportunity as well because it would make them feel like they get to be a part of something important to Australia.

Winter Sports Is The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am from Moonee Ponds Central School. I fell that winter sports is the best thing since sliced bread because it is a really fun activity and it gets kids really active on a Friday afternoon. Every Friday for the first semester of the year there is something called “Winter sports” it’s where different schools from around the district verse each other in four different sports Soccer, Footy, Tee-ball and Netball [ I was In Soccer]. Whoever wins the most games in the four sports gets to go to divisions. I loved winter sports and I wish it could go on for the whole year.
