World Vision PES 20 hour famine team from SchoolTV on Vimeo.
Last week, on Friday, a group of kids volunteered to be involved in the 20 hour famine. During extension, we took the time to study about Malawi. This is where the money was going to be going to. We had already learnt a lot of about the famine before we participated. It was incredibly fun!
Some kids brought barley sugar and Just Juice but I had decided to try to go without it and just bring water. It was VERY difficult to not be tempted not to eat. Although, we did have many activities to distract us from the hunger.
Tyla and I were chosen to be team captains of Yellow. We were pretty competitive with Team Green. This movie shows you the awesome sleep over we had at school! Hope you like it!

This presentation shows the steps of the Scientific method. Hopefully, it is already explanatory enough. I used Sumo Paint to draw my pictures and edited my photos on PicMonkey. Special thanks to the kids of Class 14.

The following is my opinion on the whole Bring Back Our Girls matter that's happening around the world. :)
The popular hashtag Bring Back Our Girls has attracted so much media attention with the whole travesty involving the missing 300 girls. Many people around the world have used the hashtag and have great Sympathy for the families in Nigeria. But is this hashtag really helping make a difference?
I think that the hashtag hasn't been very useful when trying to find the girls. Although it has brought the kidnapping to people’s awareness, it hasn’t done anything but set a new trend on social medias. Bring back our girls to me appears just to be another thing on the internet that everyone is interested in but will soon forget about later.
It is clear many people care about the 300 missing girls but this hashtag is doing absolutely nothing!

3 weeks ago, Class 1 have been going to the Glen Innes Aquatic Centre for swimming lessons. Here is a piece of writing that's kinda an advertisement about Water Safety. It explains how to stay water safe and what water safety is. Hope you enjoy! And a side note, DO NOT call the number that is provided in my writing. Thank you!
Should you wait til you’re drowning in water to finally learn how to swim? NO! Of course not! Well, NOW is YOUR chance to learn about water safety right in the comfort of your own home. So grab those swim trunks and goggles and let’s learn together!
Water Safety is more about smarts than fitness. Before going out swimming in the ocean, you should know of the conditions. This includes the weather, tide and surroundings. So make sure you have those things sussed.
If you’re in a situation in the ocean, a thing you need to remember is not to try to stand up. Once that is attempted, you’re sinking. Another thing to keep in mind is that you have to keep calm and not panic. Whatever your circumstances may be, one of the best ways to survive is keeping calm. This way, you will be able to preserve energy and you’ll have a lower chance of drowning.
If you have no idea how to swim, then when at beaches or at the pools you should keep to the shallow areas. Trying to swim in the deep ends without experience will result with death. You should probably wear a life-jacket or floaties.
Now, the best thing to ever do to better your understanding of water safety is LEARN how to swim. What you need to do is call 0800 WATER SAFE4LIFE now! Or visit the Aquatic Centre in Glen Innes for lessons. Don’t be a rock and sink! Be a tree log and FLOAT!
