Secondary School orientation day recount:

Secondary School orientation day:

On Friday the 5th of December I went to PEGS for my orientation day I knew a lot of friends from soccer that were going to PEGS. We started off the day in the music auditorium and they presented a power point about what’s happening next year in year 7. We have a task over the holidays to get a photo to enter into a competition and you can win a prize. After the PowerPoint, we were split into our homerooms classes for next year and our teacher is Mr. Perciel he talked to us and answered some of our questions that we had. We then went to have recces on the soccer oval, my friends and I played soccer for half an hour. Recces finished and we went to do English in the library with our teacher Mr Stephens. We wrote a writing piece on our favourite holiday, my friend Dante randomly got a bloody nose. Then we had science with Dr Lane, we did an experiment on the aerodynamics of a helicopter and we learnt a lot, afterwards we had a tour of the school. We went to the canteen, the office, the art room and the library. Then it was lunch time, they provided us with lunch there were so many choices I had pizza, pasties, and some fruit before playing soccer on the oval for lunch.

After lunch we had art and our activity was to draw the Mona Lisa in a different background/setting. I drew my Mona Lisa at a supermarket. A lot of people put beards and moustaches on their Mona Lisa’s. After art our last subject was sport, the sports teacher made some really bad puns that no one laughed at. We played dodgeball it was funny because everyone was slipping over. Sport finished and it was time to go home, I am looking forward to high school next year and can’t wait for my first day

Canberra camp 2014

 

Moonee Ponds Primary School Canberra camp 2014 for the 5/6s.

My favourite day was Thursday because we went to AIS (Australian Institute of Sport.) We had a tour and saw the swimming pool, soccer pitch, Volleyball courts and the gymnastics room. We learnt that the facilities they have are expensive and that the swimming pool its self-costed a few million dollars because they don’t have chlorine they have another substance that is 10x more expensive but healthier. Afterwards we headed to the soccer pitch. It was fake grass, which we weren’t expecting. After that we headed to Sportex which was in AIS there were some fun games and activities, like shooting a hoop from a wheelchair. We did that for an hour, then we played some of the sports that AIS had to offer.

At the start w did sock wrestling where we were on our knees and we had to take each other’s socks off we played 1v1. First I was against tom and I won 2-1 and I made it to the next round but I lost to Ferris. Then we went and played soccer. We made teams and played a game. The game finished 1-0, Jules scored an own goal, then our last sport was hockey. We had two balls  to play with and no one could keep count of the score. After that we left AIS and headed back to our cabins at camp and we watched a movie and hade snacks before watching a movie and packing up our belongings ready to go for the next day
