World Teachers Day Video

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may know, me and a few other kids appeared on the world teachers day add for 2015. It was really fun to make and the video has now been released!!

Books I’ve read in 2015

Hi Everyone,

Today I’ll be telling you about the most memorable books that I’ve this year.

SmileThe book in ninth place is ‘Smile’ by Raina Telgemeier. This book is a graphic novel. For me, it was an easy read but it had deep meaning.

SistersIn eighth place is ‘Sisters’ also by Raina Telgemeier and it is the sequel to ‘Smile’.

Alex as wellIn seventh place is ‘Alex As Well’ by Alyssa Brugman. I read this book in less than two days because I was glued to the pages. I recommend this book for people above twelve.

Murder Most UnladylikeIn sixth place is ‘Murder Most Unladylike’ because this murder mystery keeps you guessing the whole time and you can’t stop reading until you know who’s done it!

Arsenic for teaIn fifth place is ‘Arsenic for Tea’. It is the sequel to ‘Murder Most Unladylike’ and I enjoyed it even more.

The boy in the striped pyjamasIn fourth place is ‘The boy in the striped pajamas’. This book is so well written that it actually made me cry. It was so emotional and fascinating.

Findind GraceIn third place is ‘Finding Grace’ because it is a book that really makes me think about how hard it must be to be disabled.

WonderIn second place is ‘Wonder’. This book also brought a tear to my eye because of the amazing emotion and description.

Paper townsIn first place is…….. ‘PAPER TOWNS’. Paper towns is in first place because of the spectacular description that John Green used. I recommend this book for people above twelve.

I read literally hundreds of other amazing books but these books were clearly the best so go to your library and borrow them!!!

 

 

 

My Broken Foot

On Friday, some you would have noticed that I had a sore foot and was walking around on crutches. On Friday I didn’t really think that there was anything wrong with my foot but today I found out some bad news. I have torn one of the ligaments in my right foot and because of that a part of my foot bone has become chipped off.

At the moment I’m on crutches and I have to wear this big moon boot to help the healing process. It will take about 6 weeks for my foot to heal but in the mean time I’m not allowed to do any sport. That means I’ll probably miss out on netball finals, dance concert and my netball try-outs.

I’m sure this will be very hard for me but I’ll just have to take it easy.

Term Four

Hi everyone,

I’m going to be telling you about what I want to achieve in term four.

Firstly, I would like to go well in my regional athletics and progress on to states because last time, at regionals, I came fourth in high jump and that has only made me more determined to make it into state this year because of how close I was last year.

I will also try my best to elected as one of the school captains for 2016. I will work hard on my speech but I will understand if I do not get the position that I want.

Another goal of mine is to place in the school’s writing competition. This goal is probably unlikely to happen because the competition is out of the whole of Australia and even though I have tried hard I will more than likely place very far below the top fifteen.If you want to see my story go to the ‘Writing With Mia’ page and the story is called ‘The Footpath Kid’.

In all areas of my life, outside and inside school, I will strive to do my best. Whether it be practicing consistently for netball (I’m not vey good at doing that) or putting extra effort into my work, I am going to try my very hardest for the whole of fourth term and bring my positive attitude into term one next year.

So these are my goals and I’ll try not to give up.

School Concert 2015

Last night my school held the annual concert at the Besen Centre. The title of the concert was ‘All Aboard’ and it was a totally fantabulous performance.

The concert was based on globetrotting which means travelling the world. Our school visited many countries during the two hours and ever single one was memorable.

Every class performed two dances and mine were Waka Waka and La La La. The other dances were; Bills/ Money, Money, Money/ She works hard for the money, Hit the Road Jack, Roam, Fly Away, Born to be Wild, Camel Train to Yamba, On the road again/ I’m on my way, Walk like an Egyptian, Maps, Run through the jungle, Tigabone, Waka Waka, New York/ New York, New York, Uptown Funk, La La La, Party down by the sea and Holiday.

As part of the show there was some acting parts and I was the actress behind the amazing air hostess; Margery. My co-star was Melissa who was played by my dear friend Helaina. Lots of people came up to Helaina and I and congratulated us on our hilarity.

Of course we had to wear costumes and they were great. Here is a list of the costumes I wore:

Waka Waka: African head scarf, African skirt, black leggings and a bright top.

La La La: Soccer top, sport shorts, runners and a flag

Air Hostess: Navy skirt, Scarf, white shirt and flats.

Shout out to Annie for making part of the costumes!!!

So, overall our concert was amazing and I am definitely buying the DVD so I can watch the brilliant school concert.

My Amazing City Experience

Hi everyone,

I have been in the city staying in a hotel for a few days and it has been so much fun.

Our hotel was called Wyndham and it had a pool, a gym and a library. The pool was rooftop which was awesome and it was also heated which was lucky because the weather wasn’t all that hot.

In the city we did a range of activities and they included; going to Federation Square and looked at exhibitions (the main one was on David Bowie), doing the Eureka Tower (88 stories high), MCG tour followed by an interactive Sports museum at the ‘G’, going on the Melbourne Eye (the thing that you see going on the freeway that looks like a gigantic ferris wheel and going on a shopping spree at DFO.

Here are some pictures:

By Lead News Journalist Miezy’s

On Monday the 24th of August, schools all over the country celebrated Book Day!

At St Scholastica’s Primary School, the amazing day kicked off with the book parade! Some fantabulous book costumes were witnessed but some of the most memorable costumes were; Charlotte the Spider, Green Eggs and Ham, Netball Fairies, The Lone Ranger and the Queen of Hearts.

Throughout the day, the totally brilliant five- sixes planned activities for the younger children to enjoy. These consisted of; Noni the Pony at the Beach, Pig the Pug bookmarks, My Two Blankets pictures and celebrity heads. The most spectacular activity of the day was the lion face from ‘The Stone Lion.’ Mia and Isabella did a particularly spectacular job in helping the younger children.

The winning picture books of the year were My Two Blankets by Irena Cobold and Go to Sleep Jessie by Libby Gleeson and illustrated by Freya Blackwood. These books were incredibly deserving of the award and the books were very nice and heartwarming.

The marvelous day came to an end after the five- sixes performed their story telling. Mr. Gleeson ended the day with his story. This was all about his life.

2015 Book day was phenomenal and it was definitely one to remember!

Random Acts of Kindness

I class we have been watching videos of random acts of kindness. I think this video below is the best one because it has lots of meaning to it. I also like this video because it has a lovely phrase in it which is ‘A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple that comes back  you’

Watch this amazing, heartwarming video
