Korean Visitor

This afternoon we had a very special visitor. Jared 's Mum brought Yun He Won to visit us in Room 4. Yun He Won's english name is Tina. She has been studying at Garin College this year and goes back to South Korea tomorrow.
She told us lots of interesting things about life in Korea and answered all the questions we had. Tina wrote our names in Korean on pieces of paper and we had a go at writing them ourselves. In Korea children don't start primary school until they eight years old. Lots of our boys thought they would like to move to Korea until they heard that the school days are much, much longer as you get older.
Thank you Marie and Tina. We have learnt heaps about life in another country.

Turtle Visit

This morning Sierra's mother brought her turtle to visit Room 4. She is a Red Eared Turtle. She is 20 years old. Red Eared Turtles are found in North and South America. They are not allowed to be breed in New Zealand any more because the Department of Conservation don't want them getting into the waterways as they compete for food with native species. The Thomas's buy turtle food from the pet shop. She lives in the garden. There is a fence around so she doesn't escape and she has a pond to swim in.

Tree Planting

Here are some of the Room 4 girls ready to head off to plant trees at Snowdens Bush with the Eco Group. It is a freezing cold day so they will have to work hard to keep warm.

On Sunday Dad and I went up 88 Valley to do a motorbike race.
First we did a practice ride. Then we raced. Dad's race was first.
Dad did a wheelie. My race was last. It was fun. I thought I won. Then everyone went to the Richmond pub. I didn't get a prize but someone else gave me a hat. We went to bed late.

Exciting Weekend

I had a very exciting weekend because it was Halloween and it was my sister's birthday. We went to a Halloween party at the Baptist church.
The next day when I went fishing Sophie didn't come because she was at her birthday party. I went with my friend on the boat. We saw 2 jellyfish right next to
my fishing rod. I was frightened. We caught 18 fish.
