Camera 100wc

Once there was a girl called Ali she live a hard  life. Ali loved photography but her family was never rich enough to buy her a camera. She was walking home from school   when she stumbled across an old camera shop.

She decided to have a browse in the shop, she cought her eye on  brown camera even though it was old she seemed to like it better than the rest.

“Isn’t a beauty,”

She turned around to see an old, lady behind the counter.

“Hi,”

“I’m Jess, I see your a photographer.”

“Well yes.”

“What type of camera do you have.”

“Well you see my family could never afford one,”

“Take a camera,”

“Really? Um well I’ll take the brown one, thank you so much! Goodbye,”

“Bye!”

She was stunned that the shop owner gave the camera for free, she could imagine all the fun  afternoons she would spend with that camera.

Brief summary-black

 

This video was about how Anh Do fled Vietnam to create a better life in Australia.

–  Anh Do survived two pirate attacks, the pirates dangled his brother over the ship but     in the last minute sparing  his brothers life, his brother actually became the 2005           young Australian of the year.

–  A German ship rescued Anh Do and his family.

–   Once in Australia they were welcomed by two nuns from st Vinnies , they gave them      a bag of clothes, but somewhere in the process getting misunderstood and gave             them boy and girl clothes when in fact they had two boys.

–   Why did the pirates spare Anh Do’s  brother?

–   How long till the German rescued them?

–  I admire Anh Do’s  sense of gratitude and his humble nature, he displayed a positive attitude during tough situations as a child and was always humble and kind.

 

100 WC (How Could Something so Tiny…)

How could something so tiny have such a big impact, just three words I hate you change  could the rest of my school life.

Last week our friends had a fight, a big fight. Basically one of my friends (Lucinda)  was excluding one of my other friends (Sophie). Sophie told Lucinda she thought that she was excluding her and being mean, and that’s when the bomb went off (not literally) .

“I hate you!”

“What have I ever done to you Lucinda, name one thing!”

That happened two days ago I haven’t heard from any them since then. What happened to us?

This weeks BTN reflection

This video was about how Australia’s colonies joined to become a federation.

Australia was founded in 1770 by Captain James Cook. The British set up colonies, by 1850 there were 6 colonies, it was like they were different countries they had their own defence forces, their own railway systems and their own trade policy’s . But eventually they decided to join forces, meaning they would have a bigger defence force.

But the colonies with larger populations ( Victoria, New South Whales) were worried they’ed have to give lots money to to the smaller colonies ( Western Australia, Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia) and the smaller colonies were worried that the larger colonies would have too much power. Finally they all agreed that each colony  would have the same amount of senators so the smaller colonies wouldn’t be out numbered.

On July the 9th 1900 great Britain decided to let the colonies go, later on, on 1st of January 1901 they became a federation, the commonwealth of Australia.

Spider (Camp recount)

“Good mor-,”

“Ahhhhhh!”

“Eloise what is it this time,” I sigh.

“You woke me up,”said Emily,clearly annoyed .

“Ther,r,re is a spider on my bunk,”she squealed “And it’s spinning a web!”

I can’t believe I’m getting out of my cozy sleeping bag just to kill some spider. Unbelievable! I have to work my way around mountains of clothes just to get to her bunk.

“It’s just daddy-long-legs ,” I say.

“I don’t care just kill ittttttttt.”

“Fine.”

I grab the the first thing I see and… Wack.

“Ewwwwww, that was my best sock.” whined Eloise.

“Sorry.”
