Cross country/ IMAX excursion

Hello people!

As promised, I will tell you about what we did at IMAX, but first, I want to tell you about Cross country.

If you know about cross country, please feel free to skip the next paragraph.

So, this Friday, Some people from St. Luke’s are going to run through Jell’s park, and compete with other schools. The first 20 runners to finish in each division go on to the next round. My age group, (11-12 boys) didn’t have a choice, because each school picks 8 kids in each age groups, and there are only 8 grade 6 boys this year that are here. (Jake‘s in Fiji.) I look forward to running this year.

Anyways, on Wednesday, we went to IMAX to see Alien covenant jokes, we went and saw: the search for life in space and our beautiful planet (narrated by Jennifer Lawrence)

It was very cool, because the footage was mostly from the ISS (International Space Station) AND it was in 3D!!!

We went to the city on a train, and I got to walk to Blackburn Station with my Dad! The ride was very noisy, and when we where walking to IMAX, we saw a FERRARI!!!!!

OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!!

It was SO cool!

Any ways, after we watched the search for life in space, we went to the Melbourne Museum to look at MORE 3D coolness in the shape of a video comprising of exploding volcanoes, massive asteroids, and LOTS of diamonds.

Then we watched our beautiful planet.

It was cool

See ya!!!

tsunamis

Tsunamis are a series of waves in a water body caused by the displacement of a large volume of water, generally in an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions, landslides, meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami. Unlike normal ocean waves which are generated by wind, or tides which are generated by the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun, a tsunami is generated by the displacement of water.

See ya!

My reflection on Camp Rumbug

 

The best part was when I did canoeing with Nathan and Miss van Eyk

The funniest thing was when Lachie and I fell out of our canoe on purpose because we won the Quidditch match.

The hardest part of Camp was doing the mud run, and struggling with the jailbreak.  

Something I learned, is that  a lot of people don’t like mud, and a lot of people do like mud.

Someone I got to know better is myself, because I really let my wild side out.

Something that surprised me was that nothing was as hard as I thought it would be. (except for the mud run and Jailbreak)

The most memorable part for Camp rumbug, was the disco, because it was very loud, and so much fun.

 

See ya!

My response to a video.

The video: http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s3953606.htm

Will H- After I watched the behind the news video, I felt happy that we would soon be producing electricity, just by putting rubbish bins on the curb. I also learnt that some sites with trees and plants on it, actually have rubbish buried 16 meters below it.  kind of like a fertiliser, that helps the rubbish decompose, and that there are 4 stages of rubbish.

  1. Thrown away
  2. Driven to Landfill
  3. Taken to a Landfill site, where it is:
  4. Buried, and has trees and grass planted over it.

I enjoyed watching that video, and I hope that more people will learn the difference between recycling, and rubbish. Additional question: How many recyclable plastics do you have?

See ya!
