This year has been amazing! Because this is my last day of school, this will potentially be my last post. From extreme camps to quiet school days, this year has had its ups and downs. Exams this year were one of the biggest lows but spending time with my friends were the biggest highs. Today is my last day at this school because I am moving to a different school. Although I am exited to move, I will really miss many of my friends. This for me is a high and low. School camp was a ‘blast’… not really. I think most of us would agree that our camp was the worst school expereince in our life. Camp put us out of our comfort zones. Although we got to meet new people and become closer with our already existing freinds, I think we were all happy to leave camp and come home to our beds. Exams were as terrible as the title suggests but I think we are glad to have them over and done with. We also havent decided the pronunciation of ‘Iraq’ which has become a big dilemma in our ICT class. I think that this year has been a very different type of year from the ones in the past. Stay safe for the holidays and have a great Christmas 🙂
Recently, we have had our Spring Break. I visited North America and it was amazing. After the very annoying 15 hr flight, we arrived in LAX. We didnt staythere for too long as it was only a stopover but then we went to Colorado. Colorado is typically labelled as a snow state for skiing and snowboarding, but becauise we went in Fall, there was no snow. The views of the mountains were beautiful and we went on many hikes. I saw many of my friends there and the weather was amazing. Although, on the last few days, it was snowing. It got a bit cold but it was very sunny. Once we left Colorado, we went to LA and stayed there for a night. We visited Disneyland I saw many of my favourite disney characters. One of which is Winnie the Pooh. I saw him and went on the ride there which was very cute. We also went to California land and i went on California Screamin’ which is a very fast rollercoaster that goes upside-down. I loved it so much that I went on it twice. Once we finished there, i went to the Mad-Hatter shop where I bought a winnie the pooh and belle hat. I loved my trip to America and i Want to go back again. If you have any inquiries, dont be afraid to comment!
Here is an audio recording of Man from Snowy River. It’s a recording of the last verse, which is my favourite, because it shows that even many years after the accident, the story is told by the stockmen. I love this poem as I grew up with it. I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I do.
