I’m looking forward to many things like going to Albury, going to my friends house, Easter and….. CHOCOLATE!!!
I’m going to visit my cousins who live in Albury, Wodonga, and we rarely see them because they live so far away. My cousins are really fun and we go there for Easter. We normally go to mass and do Easter egg hunts. Last year my cousin woke everyone up really early and she toke some of her chocolate.
Easter is a very special time of year and we can often forget the true meaning of Easter. The chocolate eggs are awesome but sometimes Jesus is forgotten. Jesus sacrificed his life for us and was crucified. He resurrected on the third day. The reason for the Easter egg is that it signifies new life.
This year all grade five participated and competed in a public speaking course.
Sylvia is the lady who ran the course. She was strict but as a result of that we have learnt so much. We have prepared many speeches and we have also done impromptu speeches. These speeches are very challenging as you have to make up your speech on the spot.We have talked about visual aids, gestures, emotions, projection and standing correctly with one foot forward and NO FIGLEAF! ‘Figleaf’, is standing with your arms clasped in front of your body and it is bad because it restricts you from making gestures and doing other important things.
On Wednesday night we had our public speaking evening for 2015 and we had the top ten speakers competing on the night as well as impromptu speeches and skits.
I we all did a great job but I would especially like to congratulate the top three; Katrina, 1st, Benedict, 2nd place and Mia (myself) in third place.
Thankyou to Sylvia, Mr G and the year five teachers for organising this amazing event.

In class, we have been talking about the school with no rules. We watched a youtube video about a school in New Zealand with no rules.
Although it did seem fun, the amount of risks these kids were allowed to take was astonishing. What I saw was kids having fun but in a very unsafe and unhygienic environment. But I also think that there is also good in what was going on. I can’t decide what side I’m on!
I have the link below and once you have watched it tell me what you think.
