It was that fateful day once again but even more painful. Cross country, no one likes it well except for the ‘’expert’’ runners. Last year I did well, kind of. I’ll tell you what happened, I came 2nd I promise but it was a bumpy ride to get there. So I was running with my mate on the track and soon as felt like puking up my breakfast. We were moving very fast when I tripped over my mate then fell over the people in front of me and vomited and made people slip. It was on the finish line.
It’ll all started that fateful day of my death and disappearance, well if i’m dead you’re probably guessing how i’m talking well i’m half dead. It started, one dark afternoon my family and i where dining at a Dad’s restaurant. I went out to feel the breeze on my face, as i was grabbed around the neck, i tried to run but they were to strong. And i suddenly kicked the person down without a sense of thought. And then in a blink of an eye there was a bright light, and now i’m eyes of the statues, i’m the soul.

Dear Ant and everybody else,
First lot of things I want to say is I’m excited to be in year 6 this year, and I want to enjoy my last year of primary school with my wonderful class, friends and my support from my teacher.
Favourite things are
My names Aaliyah so some of the things I like and I’m interested in are tennis (I play competition and do lessons), my teams is maribyrnong park, I love sports in general, listening to music, writing and drawing. I love my family and they’re very supportive of me and help me get through school. My friends are the best and are awesome, when I was younger in kinder to grade 3 I only played with boys, until I met an awesome group of girls. Then my best friend left me, but she might be coming for high school where I’m going. I also love playing my musical instrument I played the cello for two 3 years but I changed to saxophone this year. I love watching movies, and one I watched recently was wonder. And I’m not girly girly like other girls.
What is my family like?
In my family I have my mum Clare, my dad Vikas, my twin brothers Ishwar and Ram and my sister Amira. My brothers are only twenty minutes apart and are always getting into trouble with their friends. They’re in grade 2 this year and are always hooked up to computers or anything technology based and went to code camp last spring holidays. They love the computer so much I bet you when there older they’ll be doing something based on tech as their job. And their always hanging out together. Know my sister on the other hand isn’t a girly girl but is sort of. She loves playing most sports. She’s one of those quirky acting girls. She also plays tennis like me and plays competition but in a lower grade then me. Amira loves listening to her music on her headphones and always starts dancing in the backyard and in our room. And one thing I have to say is as the middle child it means that she gets jealous all the time. Know my parents, my Mom Clare works as a manager at a gym, she’s the same age as my dad and has got 2 siblings. And right now she doing an MBA. My Dad Vikas is Indian, and he’s going to India for 3-6months for work. And he’s always picking us up from school and we always visit his parents all the time. And his dad (my grandpa) can do cartwheels proper ones. In India there house is three stories and when I came out of the airport I vomited after seeing a cow. My English grandma lives in Trentham and was the president of the garden club, my cousin Neallah is half French an also live lives in Trentham when we see our grandma we sleepover at our cousins and see kangaroos on the road and wild birds. Our uncle lives in Yea where my grandma lived as a child and they owned so many animals. With a dog curly who I thought was a horse when I was younger, but died a few years ago.
Something to share
Some of you may know this in grade 3 and grade 5 I did fundraisers. So for my 9th birthday I did a fundraisers for the royal children’s hospital, and had my birthday at the awesome park next door and instead of presents asked for money. I raised 350 dollars. And in grade 5 I raised money for the against malaria foundation for mosquito nets. I made origami rainbow flowers décor. And I raised about 5-6 hundred dollars.
What did you do in the holidays?
In the holidays at the start I went to my English grandma’s house and spent a few nights up there and spent Christmas there with my family. My mom got tonsillitis and we had to stay an extra night because she couldn’t drive home. 1 Week later we went to the Mornington peninsula and stayed with one of my mums old friends, and went to beach and saw jellyfish. Then after that we went to Hastings where we saw my one of my uncles my aunty and my little cousin Eva who’s very bouncy and bubbling. She’s always energized. She has a toy car and a doctor toy bag, where she used the tools as equipment to fix the car. We slept in tents there. And went along the beach where Ram started singing to the sea. 1 Week after that we saw them again in Yea where my great aunt lives, we were celebrating her 76th birthday and her selling her house after 50 years. Yea is a really nice little town with lots to explore. There was so much family at the party, to be honest I didn’t even know some of them were family. I made friend with my cousin Rosie who’s 13. I told you guys that Eva sat on my head, I was lying on the ground I thought she was stepping over but it was worse, now I literally scarred for life. Other times on the holidays we watched movie like when we went to watch Wonder with my grandma and I cried 3 times, and another time we saw coco with Zedekai and his family. Me, Amira and my Mum went to the Australian open. We went early and made a plate for a donation to the food foundation and ended up getting free passes to rod laver for the day. We saw Svitolina and Siniakova and I got one of their towels they used. Then we saw Wozniacki and Fett, Wozniacki was down the first set but she came back. After that we saw Nadal and Mayer and man did Mayer have a fast serve his fasted was 208 km an hour but Nadal in the end won. We saw a bit of Zverev, and a French player on a show court. But our last match we saw went from 7:30 till 10 something it was Carla Suarez Navarro and Babos. I actually got Carla’s signature. But from week 3 to this friday we had the boy’s class turtle, bubbles who was so cute, on the really hot days we couldn’t take him outside on the grass, so we turned the bath on and put some water in and his rock, and his swam there. Other days we went on playdates or stayed home.
What do you hope to do in the Future?
I don’t really know what I want to do in the future job wise. I really have a big passion for tennis, and play competition. I’m actually the youngest in my team, and for a young age I’m doing well for how high I am. But there’s probably going to be a lot of different jobs in the future. But in the future years in high school I want to do more of my fundraisers for different organizations.
Thanks for listening, see you guys in class 😄
An Aussie school has been making apps so people all round the world can play it. Students from Aberfoyle Park High school, their schools even become the first in the country to be registered as a developer under its own name. They’ve created all using coding. Every twice a week they meet up at lunchtimes for a coding workshop. It’s been running for about three years know. Coding is using a combination of letters and blocks making a set of instructions on a digital object, that follows instructions. Coding is a bit hard to start off, but then it gets easier as you learn more. They code on tablets using a coding language called python and an app called pythonister. Python is a really easy to understand coding language and it allows them to use their iPads to create their own games. They need to work as a team to design entertaining and challenging games. And once they’re happy with their creation, they give their finished code to their teacher who sends it through to an app store. So far, the school’s got 7 games registered that anyone around the world can play. These guys are hoping to use the skills they’ve learned here to get a great job in the future.
Some of the kid’s opinions- RYAN: With all the new technology and robots coming out, I feel like coding is going to be an important aspect in the future so I want to use it to get a job and help me make a financial balance. GEORIGIA: I’d really like to get a job doing this kind of thing one day. I think it would be a really fun experience. TYLER: I’m definitely hoping to make this work in the real world especially since I’m very interested in html and I hope to code websites as well as games cause I heard you can make quite a buck out of that!
How many people are coding in the club?
Is it easier or harder than what we’re learning?
I now understand how coding is important, and it will be a huge part of the future. And how much it is encouraged at schools, and it’s becoming part of the curriculum. I know now that anyone can do coding, and this school real helps children and has a good program.
‘’Come on it’s been years, what makes you think after all these years we’ll actually find it.’’ Said Jake
‘’Well do you think there’s anything else to do on this island were stuck for the rest of our lives so what’s it to you. ‘’ said Michael
‘’I was just saying’’ James exclaimed
‘’Well James I think I going to make your day’’ said Michael
‘’Wow really’’ James said enthusiastically
‘’ Well I just found something through the cave, it looks old and precious worth a lot’’.
‘’Oh my god it gold, but where would we hide it all’’.
It’s that time of year again, when you wear a mask and dress up. When you’re a ghost, monster or demon. But when you get to that age you know there’s no such thing as monsters. But this Halloween was different. We were on a holiday in America and it was pretty late at night and we’d finished trick or treating we went to get Starbucks. But when my family went off I got pushed and fell into this dusty mist. I looked up and there were thousands of ghosts just walking around, and I raced to hide but they were everywhere.
Alyssa would have celebrated me being gone, all I wanted was for her to trust me. That kid hasn’t trusted me since I left her Dad in the war field. Her eyes swimming among her anger, red burning flames. She’s been so lonely and has been shutting out the whole world. I just couldn’t tell her why I left him in the field. She wouldn’t believe me. As I sat down her face turned fully white. I told her once the gates open you go out and don’t come back. The war outside our world is real. This fantasy you’re living in is not.” Tomorrow is where it begins.
The screaming and yelling echoed all through the apartment. Tears dripped down my face slowing. As the door slammed, I knew he was gone forever. He drove of down the alley way. As I rushed quickly down the alley, but all I could see was a few cars speeding through the lights. But then I saw his car him looking back at me. My Mum came out from the apartment, and I fell into her arms. How could he leave us like that? And more importantly how could he leave me like this? He shouted but I was too broke to listen.
