I Wish I Wasn't Sick! by Athens

The other week all the seniors and juniors went to the Botanic Gardens. I was so excited! But I ended up being sick. 

That day I woke up extra early to get ready. I wasn't feeling great when I woke up. I woke up to a sore stomach. While I was getting ready I felt like vomiting but I ignored it and thought it would go away - unfortunately it didn't.

My mum then took us to the bakery to buy us some yummy treats. After we bought the food we went back into the car. I felt like I was going to vomit any second and I did. I vomited all over my mum's car. Some of the vomit touched the food that we bought. It wasn't a pretty sight.

I kept on vomiting throughout out the day so I didn't go to school for at least three days. It was really boring. I'm happy that I'm feeling well now.

Practice, Practice, Pratice by Sophie-Isabella

As we all know Term 4 is the busiest terms of them all. Test are coming up and we have to work harder for the next new year.We are all studying and preparing for our upcoming assessments.

Some of the year 8 students will soon be heading off to College and be developing more on their learning: a new year, new opportunities  to face.

Time to set goals for our next year to focus on and attempt to succeed. Hopefully College treats our Year 8's right next year.

Exploring The Botanic Gardens by Sophie-Isabella

Our school had the opportunity to visit the wide variety of plant life at the Botanic Gardens. We all had worksheets to fill out where we had to explain what they are and a little description of the plants.

We passed through the Rock Garden near the lake to get to the Urban trees where we found our first answer. Next we followed the signs to get to the Native ID Trail where we spent most of our time searching for answers.

We all learnt lots of things we had not known before. But we only had a few minutes left which we used to admire the Rose Garden.

By the end of our trip most of us were exhausted from walking around all day. We enjoyed our day very much and look forward to our next visit to the Botanic Garden.

It's Finally Our Last Term by Anavea

We're finally back from our two weeks holiday and it's the last term of the year. It's the time where we have our end of the year assessments and I'm pretty excited about it but worried about getting a low score. Goodbye intermediate, hello college!

Skipping by Athens

Nearly this whole term we have been working on our skipping! 

On Thursday we performed it in front of our parents and Room 11. It was a really fun time. We had our own individual groups. Sophie, Pallas, Tyla and Meana was in my group. We came up with alot of good tricks. Most of our tricks included the long rope. My group only did a couple of acts then we stopped and just watched Heilala's group. 

One of my favourite tricks were when Aydrian did a cartwheel into the skipping rope. It was super cool, I wish I could do that! My second favourite trick was when Anavea and Maranatha did push ups inside of the skipping rope. It was an overall really good day.
