My infographic

My infographic

My infographic is about the separation of powers, why and how this is done in Australia’s government. I tried to work on my paragraph structure and make all of my paragraphs clear and understandable. I also tried to use tons of icons throughout my text. I think I did a good but could probably could of worked on maybe adding diagrams or captions throughout the text.

100wc but how did she get up there.

Goal- to use descriptive words

I agent Hannah wells was the best FBI agent there was, all of my cases were solved in the first 2 months and I always got the culprit  in jail, yet this case was different . I was  trying to figure out who’d  killed some girl who’d been missing for 20 years.   I’d been on this case for 5 months now hadn’t found a single lead until yesterday. I was exploring this victims bedroom and all of the sudden I looked up to see a girl suspended in mid air above me, I blinked and who ever I saw was gone, but how did she get up there?

Understanding  

 

 

Ever  few years all Australian citizens over the age of 18 get to vote, but for a long time it wasn’t like that. Women were though of as overly emotional simply not smart enough to vote, by the late 1800’s suffragettes (women who demanded that they be able to vote), they wrote articles and led protests. Finally in 1902 they were granted the right to vote,and Australia became the very first country to allow women to vote and go up for election, but that didn’t mean everyone could vote. Aboriginal Australians couldn’t vote, they could finally vote in 1949, but that was only for those who served in the army.  It wasn’t until 1962 all aboriginals had the right to vote. Did you know the voting age was 21 until 1973 ?!

 

Currently can aboriginals run for parliament?

Are there any country’so   now that  don’t allow women  to vote?

I understand that it took Australia a long time to allow all Australian citizens to have the right to vote.

 

btn Governor General

btn Governor General

Facts 

When we think of the most powerful person in Australia we probably think of the PM, but did you know there’s actually someone who FIRE the PM and they’re called the Governor General ( or GG). They represent the queen ( because we are a monarchy) and make sure the Prime minister is following all the rules. Although they have private jets and mansions that doesn’t necessarily mean they have it easy, they have to attend many events and shake LOTS of hands and of our previous GG’s attended at least one event every day for the whole time she was GG. And you know back in 1975 the GG John Kerr fired the PM Gough Whitlam, this caused a ton of controversy, so it fair to say its not a job to take lightly. 

Question

Will a GG ever fire a pm again?

Who is our current GG?

 

Understanding 

I understand that being GG is a really important job even though they might not get much credit or publicity and is not a job to be taken lightly.

100wc ( the cup)

100wc ( the cup)

Unlike most cups this one  did not hold pitiful liquid, for this cup held secrets dark secrets, sacred secrets know one could ever know. Yet it didn’t just hold secrets it held memories, precious memories of  joy and sorrow from far and wide. As it drifted from place to place enlightening all who came in contact with its memories and secrets, leaving all who bearded the cups wisdom wise. You may not ever see value in a mere teacup, and you may not ever need to, for the cup is long gone and only remains in the memory  and myth.

 

Goal: Really include the prompt in my piece.

Facts

understandings 

 

There are 3 very important levels of government, federal , state and local, they all work separately (although they may overlap) to keep our country and it’s states and territory’s safe. Federal looks after the big stuff  like monetary issues and taxes, foreign affairs, defence and so much more. State look after things concerning it state ( or territory) like police the fire department and ambulance, it looks after roads ( particularly large freeways) , schools, and hospitals. Local looks after the smaller things ( although there are over 500 of them through out Australia) they look after permits, pets and garbage. Although sometimes they disagree federal alway gets the final say.

Who is or local leader? 

What dissargements have the 3 levels had recently?

I now understand who they 3 levels of government are and the roles and responsibilities  they have.

my 100wc

I went to school, tired and lethargic, to notice the teachers and staff all sitting patiently at the desks. Miss Brown my teacher, waved to me and greeted me, “Morning…. well aren’t you going to do the role?” Uhh yes, or gestured to the my desk and hesitantly started to call out my students names. After role there was an arkward silence, what was I suppose to teach.  “Miss what are you gonna teach us,” said one. “Uh about that- um, er, you can read, yeah read,”

100wc slow brown ladder flew goldfish

The soft brown sand rubbed against my toes, the bright sun shining down on me, the sun golden like a goldfish. The water crashing along sand, slow and steady. Seagulls flew above , gossiping in the warm sun. I felt calm and safe. After that I went to the treehouse and climbed the rickety ladder to the top. I looked out the treehouse to notice the beach just like how I left it, un touched and calm this was my place, my happy place.

Letter to mum about government

Letter to mum about government

Dear mum,

At school I learnt about government ( and now I probably know more than you) Did you knew our country is a constitutional  democracy because the queen has somewhat of a say, and that we federated and made a constitution in 1901 this was all very much influenced by the US and England as they were some of the first successful parliamentary democracy’s . Because of this we have rights and freedom and speech and a stable government and live in  the great country  of today.

There are 3 levels of government federal, state and territory and local (we are a part of the Moonee valley city council).

A question I have for you is, who is in charge of our local government ( the Moonee valley ) and state government it would be great if you could answer that.

From Lexi.
