Green Team Application 2014

Hi my name is Raymond. I have been at this school ever since prep. I have never been a green team member so that’s why I want to give it a crack. I have 2 siblings, Jack and Elina. Jack’s in year 7 at Rosehill and Elina’s coming to prep next year. I have been involved in a lot of things in this year, like the econnect presentation, the school cricket team, the prep transition etc. I like to have some fun in class as well as learning new things.

I have great organizational skills as well as communication skills and I’m always opened to new learning experiences. I’m good with organizing people because I have organised a lot of people throughout my time at this school. Like that time when I helped James in PE. I helped him by teaching him how to catch a ball when it’s coming at you at full speed. Another time was when Declan, Devlin and I wanted to be house captain and the teachers told us to organize the 5/6s for their sport session. I was in the school cricket team this year with a few other boys in 5/6. Kallum and I helped organized the lunch time training and help set up for the training.

I’m really good at communicating because I have spoken to a large group of people/parents in the past few years. An example was the econnect presentation for the 3/4 parents a few weeks ago with Angus Beaumont, Lilli Coulson, Bryn conliffe and Grace. I have spoken in assembly a couple of times last year and the year before. I am a 1/2 ICT buddy this year, with I communicated with Senada a lot to tell her how to do something on the computer. I have communicated to the prep teachers a lot in prep transitions, like when I introduced my sister to the prep teachers.

I am always opened to new learning experiences because I want to learn more things. I think that if I’m a green team member then I would learn a lot more about flora and fauna. I also want to be a part of the coastal embasitors program with will help my extend my learning as well as have fun. I also want to be a green team member so I can help set up the nude food day.

That’s why I want to be a green team member for all those reasons.

The 5 Big Questions: Surfing Mr Petrovic

Earlier in the term the 5/6s were split in groups of 5 or 6 and were given a book to read for the next 5 weeks. Our book was Surfing Mr Petrovic. My group consist of Alex, Shikira, Tommy, Cindy and myself. Hear are my 5 big questions about the book.

Big Question number 1: What makes this story good?

This story is good because it has lots of funny parts as well as very emotional parts. The emotional part is when  Blooch dies. The funny parts is when Tao picks his nose.

Big question number 2: What would make this book better?

To make this book better it needs longer chapters and more descriptive words. The chapters are too short which means it doesn’t have a lot of action in each chapter.

Big question number 3: Whats the one most important thing the author wants us to know?

That if someone tells to do something, doesn’t necessarily mean you have too. If someone told you to jump off a bridge, you wouldn’t do it . So never do something you think is dangerous or if you don’t feel confident with.

Big question number 4: Why did the writer write this?

The writer wrote this book because he wants us to know that you must stand up for your self when it comes to difficulties .

Big question number 5: What does the audience need to understand and enjoy the book?

Sometimes the audience needs to knows is that this book has some colourful language, funny and sad moments, angry parts and all up trouble. This book shows the true courage and standing up for your self.
