Previously men have been the only people who work on construction sites but more and more girls are learning about construction sites and how to build.
Girls should have the same opportunities as boys. Firstly girls always pay more attention to detail and if you are building a house and one of the bricks are not straight then the whole building is at risk of collapsing. Also we need more people in the building industry because it is a high risk job. Also men don’t leave school as early as they used to and get into the building industry instead they keep on going to school and do they’re VCE exam. So we need more people in the building industry and girls should have the same opportunity!
On the other hand construction sites are dangerous work places. Girls might not be as strong and if they have baby they would need a maternity leave and it would be to expensive for the employer. Also other workers could be at risk if a girl drops a heavy block and it lands on another persons foot, it could injure them badly.
In conclusion there are obviously two sides to this issue. In my opinion girls should be allowed to work in the construction industry. What do you think about this issue?
On Thursday 29 of july year 6 went to a place called CERES, CERES is an environmental park with activities that help you learn about the environment. CERES is in east Brunswick and also on Wednesday and Sunday’s they have a market where they selll to the public.
The activity that showed me how much to care for the environment was the Australia 2030, you had to go around and plan what you’d like for your future and then they would tell you what your life would be when your older. my generation was generation H, first of all my sun wasn’t happy and the schools and streets were overcrowded and there was some pollution and only 78 years of petrol left. it showed me that if i keep living like i am now that when I’m older my life won’t be very nice. i think the point of the activity was that some people have to change the way they are living and think more about the environment.
This book is about Sanley Yelnats the 3rd and the curse that previously his great great grandfather’s friend/fortune teller put on the whole family because he didn’t repay a favour.
Now many years later in the busy streets of America, Stanley is accused of committing a crime he didn’t commit. he was sent to a Juvenile Detention Center called Camp Green Lake. Every day they have to dig a hole 5 feet long and 5 feet deep. Sanley asks the same question every day, why are they digging?
Stanley meets a small homeless boy called Zero who doesn’t tease Stanley about being overweight. When they exchange digging for learning they both become better friends and uncover secrets about their families history. Digging is hard especially with the Warden, a woman with red curly hair and freckles, on your case.
The boys at Camp Green Lake spot a storm near camp and in the light of a lightening bolt stanley sees a rock formation shaped as a big thumb. He can’t help thinking of his great grandfather finding Refuge on Gods Thumb. When Zero and Stanley get into a fight with the other boys they find themselves in a muddle with lizards and onions and then they have no other choice but to gather up all their strength, courage and bravery and do something that they would have never done in their life….
I found this book very good because i like the type of stories that all the little details add up to something good. Holes was about courage, friendship and a very bad curse!
Like humans, dogs can donate blood as well and save their friends from blood loss caused by rat poisoning and car crashes
Cats can also donate blood and in a case where a cat is low on blood a dog can use it’s blood to help the cat, but the cat unfortunately can’t return the favor. Mitzy was a dog that had to have a blood transfusion because some rat poisoning fell from a shelf and she ate it and was rushed to hospital for a transfusion. A blood transfusion is when a dog eats rat poisoning and need some blood from another dog to flush away all the poisoning. Mitzy was really sick so she had to have three transfusions the transfusion luckily saved not only Mitzy but a lot of other dogs too!
When you are taking a dogs blood you have to weigh the dog first and make sure that the dogs weight is over 30kg they also have to be healthy, aged between 1 to 7 years old and have a calm temperament. Then they have to attach a drip, in the drip is nutrients that were in the blood that was lost in the transfusion. The vet also gives the dog something to make it calmer. After the transfusion the blood is kept for a month and if it is not used in a month it has to be thrown away.
I hope that lots more dogs keep donating blood and that no more dogs get into mischief eating rat poisoning! If you have or had a dog how would you feel about it donating blood?
Boy Overboard is a story about a family living in Afghanistan under the Taliban rules and they have to leave because the government finds out about their illegal school. They want to move to Australia where they an start a new life but on their way they have to face a lot of problems.
I think the author wrote this story so he could get the the message across that some people in Afghanistan are living in a life death situation. And and to say that the afghans are not bad people.
I admire Bibbi because i think that even though she is not allowed to go out and things she still does. and i think she has some great expressions.
I think it was a very deep and meaningful book and I’d recommend it to anyone who is ready for some adventure and also a tear in their eye. i think that everyone should realise that this is actually haperning.
Australian athletes are worried about going to India because of a major warning from a terrorist group. Some athletes believe that safety comes first and and some just want to play sport. so will they go?
Over in India there has been several terrorist attacks and with the Commonwealth Games and Cricket I.P.L coming up terrorists think it’s a perfect opportunity to get attention.
India want to have a successful Commonwealth Games so then hopefully hold an Olympic Games. Indian security are trying very hard to make it safe.
Natalie Von Bertouch from the Australian netball team says: “We had a bit of a look in the athletes village very very high standard it’s not complete yet but it’ll definitely look good in the end. I felt very safe there.”
Blues Paceman and Bert Cockley are glad they missed out on making the cricket team. Bert Cockley a cricketer said: ”I think that sometimes you have to put your safety first. You know you can’t go over there and not come home really.”
So will they go to the Commonwealth Games? Lets just hope for the best!
On monday 99 students from The Peninsula School set off on their camp to Wilsons Prom. when we arrived we set up our tents and settled in to our cozy camp. Then in the evening we hiked the steep challenging Mt. Oberon. when we got to the top we were amazed by the breathtaking view.
The next day we walked to squeaky Beach and the sand made a funny squeaky noise when you stepped it. Next we were challenged by canoeing Annie and I came last in the the race. Then we bike rode down to the shop bought a post card to send to our parents back at home. Last of all we set off on the haunted Biddys walk I think everyone was scarred by the spooky story behind.
On the third day we did oriantering it was very interesting even though it was a bit boring. Next we did surfing which was my favourite activity out of them all. I stood up heaps of times! Then we went to the education center it was really fun and interesting and I made a cast of a front paw of a wombat which we saw a lot of. In the evening we had trivia night our team was called the mango jam and we came 5th.
On thursday we did beach flags and games I didn’t do very well in beach flags but at least I still had fun! We also played some really fun games that involved lots of teamwork. After lunch we went boogie boarding and made sand castles. In the evening a big thunder storm arrived and our tent flooded so we had to sleep in the caravan in our drenched clothes!
On the last day we took down our tents and I think we were all a bit sad and happy to leave but when we got home we all enjoyed the nice comfort of our own bed that night!
