Speeches

So I made it into the speech finals, super exciting! I made it along with three other students who are Meana, Salu and Henry. We are all very thrilled and have been working super hard to do our best. 

My speech is about procrastinating which I, myself do a lot of. I know I'm not the only person in the world who does this so my speech is to help out everyone else who has the same problem as me. I hope on Friday I can please the judges and maybe even come a place.

Second Place!

So my wishes didn't come true after all, after hoping and praying that Mr Reid doesn't make us run up and down the tracks. Guess what happens the very next day? That's right! He makes us run and get ready for athletics day.

Somehow on athletics day I placed second in both the 100 and 200 metre races (don't ask me how I did it, I don't know). So that meant that I was going to the inter-schools competition! 

The students and I trained every single morning to get ready for it but sadly I ended up catching the flu from my brother so I had to stay home. Luck is never on my side.

Athletics

Athletics day is quickly approaching and to be completely honest, I'm not that thrilled. This year's athletics is a tiny bit different from last years because the 75 metres dash no longer exists. Instead we now have to run a long, sad 200 metres. 

So far we haven't started practising and I don't think we are going to get to it. We are all currently busy with relays but who knows? Mr Reid might surprise us and make us run up and down the tracks. Let's just hope he doesn't.

Film Festival

Yesterday was one of the greatest days ever! Mainly because we showcased our movie at the Sylvia Park Hoyts. Another wonderful thing about this is that we earned a break from the everyday, boring things that we usually do at school. I feel as this event occurred at the perfect time because I'm pretty sure everyone including the teachers needed a break from all the testing that's currently happening.

Here's the movie that we put blood, sweat and tears into.

A Total Disaster!

Last week's fitness was a total catastrophe. Everyone was all over the place! Mrs Riley herself even said that she was confused. I could see why; 8 groups running at the same time would drive me insane! I wouldn't even know which team to keep my eyes on.

Gradually over the week everyone started to get a hang of it. This just proves that practice makes perfect! Everyone knew which team they were in, how to play, what to do, etc. The teachers also decided that only 4 teams should be running instead of 8. Which was a good decision on their part. So far I'm enjoying fitness.

Mixing Colours Together!

This week our class conducted a science experiment. The main focus of the experiment was the colours that changed whenever we spun the discs quickly. 

At first I was all over the place but quickly I became focused and stuck into it. I made sure my buddies and I didn't mess up because we didn't want to face the wrath of Mrs Golder. 

This is definitely my most favourite science experiment mostly because I enjoyed everything from step 1 all the way to the end and it was pretty fun spending our afternoon just playing with the discs that we created.

Glass Work!

This term for Tech the Year eights are finally doing glass work. Mr Grundy introduced us to it last year but said only the Year eights get to do it, which made me upset because I had to wait a whole year and when it comes to being patient I'm the worst.

Cutting the glass is more difficult than it looks. My hands would always shake whenever I'd cut which then made my piece of glass lopsided and asymmetrical. After cutting for a while my hands would turn red and start to hurt.

Even though I'm not the greatest at glass work I'm going to persevere and try my best! I can't wait to show off my finished product.
