When I walked past the brown wall today there wasn’t just plain old brown it was something new what was on there today was something creative, unique and well…beautiful. At first glance it was hard to figure out what it was but really could of be anything. At first I was a bit worried that the painting will be covered with scrawl and graffiti but it didn’t I thought it was so camera worthy. It was so nice but sometimes I stare at it for a long time and it goes back to brown but I sort of liked it that way……

Australia- a Fedaration

Australia – a Federation

 

1642, Abel Tasman found Tasmania if he stayed we all would be speaking Dutch!

1770, James Cook, took a big chunk of Australia for Britain.

 

Before federation, WA, NT, SA, NSW, VIC, QLD were all different colonies and they were sort of like different countries but Britain is the big boss. This is obviously since European settlement. Aboriginals had their own tribes, culture and regions.

 

Back then you couldn’t travel from Brisbane to Melbourne because the train tracks were different widths. After a while the colonies started to think they could join together because for one thing, if they did, they could make bigger army’s with more defense.

 

But the colonies still had suspicions about each other. The colonies with the most people (VIC and NSW) were worried they would have to pay to the smaller poorer colonies but the smaller ones were worried that NSW and VIC had too much wealth and power. It happened in America as well but ended up much worse so now there’s America and Canada. But for us it went with no wars. They first decided to have the same number of senators. So the colonies weren’t out numbered.

 

But on July the ninth 1900, Britain decided to leave the 6 colonies, (and make Country!!!) and then on January the first 1901, the 6 colonies formed the common wealth of Australia! ACT and Northern Territory were added later. But it wasn’t all fun and happiness, Woman couldn’t vote in federal elections till 1902, and Aboriginals couldn’t vote until 1962, and they weren’t counted in the census until 1971.

 

We are bettering off united as a country than 6 different states divided.

H.W.C #4

Today we were going on an excursion to a typical super computer. I say its typical because it’s the year 2025, there’s literally a super computer in every house! Oh yeah and there’s this new kid in my sector, (class) he claims that he’s from the year 2017 I think it was like December or something? Well I don’t remember for sure… but any ways.

On the quantum trans (bus) I had to sit next to the weirdo apparently his name was Marco. He was explaining that ‘they were on the verge of something new’. when we got there we got to see the  CPU (Central Processing Unit) in all of its glory but then Marco cried out “BUT HOW CAN SOMETHING BE SO TINY!?”

video reflection

Two guards (Suds and Thompson) try to steal some cloth but the weird thing is they want to get caught. Guards don’t get enough pay only to receive boredom and brutality. The guards think that being in the convict colony is a better life and they could even own a piece of land but times are changing and governor darling wants to make an example from these two. There punishment will be that they are transported to Australia for 7 years, hard labour in chains. The chains are torture it makes it harder to walk or stand up.

Suds is very ill as well, his stomach bloats and his arms and legs swell, his taken to prison hospital and dies 3 days later.  When Suds had died the gazette and the monitor try to protect the governor they said stuff like “the chains were more heavy as thought” and that “he was already sick”. But then W.C Wentworth decides to stir things all up…….

When the yellow Lear jet landed at the private airport the millionaire gingerly walked out of the plane however what he didn’t know is that soon he wouldn’t be a millionaire any more…

when he got to his factory his employees didn’t look at him twice when he got to reception he asked Sally what was going one and what she said was remarkable. when he got home didn’t know how to explain it to his family.

But at that moment he got a text discovered that it was all a joke and his brand wasn’t sold and he was still boss.

H.W.C 3

 

It was a dark, quite night but when out of nowhere a bright streak of lightning struck an old tree in the park. Nothing happened to the tree but something deep inside it woke up……

The next day a boy named James came to the park. Park he went over to the old tree and sat down. He was listening to his mp3 when he dropped it when he went down to look for it, it wasn’t there. Where could it have gone? It was like it had been swallowed up. Then out of nowhere a big hand reached out and took the tree

What had happened? Why had it happened?

No one will ever know….

camp poem

Surf surf

Splish splash running into the water

Pull pull paddling through the water

Turn turn get ready for the wave

Glide glide flying through the water

Balance balance try stand up

Splash splash wipeout!

 

 

Cave cave

Crawl crawl squeeze through the tight gaps

Roll roll on the dusty ground

Climb climb the big rocks

Catch catch the frogs that jump through your legs

Help help the frogs through the cave to their home

Walk walk back to the equipment
