Isn’t every child’s dream to be famous, is it really worth it? Do you really know what it is to be famous? there are some very strong reasons that fame is a nightmare instead of your childhood dream.
Firstly, privacy is a huge concern for the celebrities. Paparazzi are renowned for hounding them down in order to just take a snapshot of them eating a hamburger. Privacy is something we all take for granted. Everyone remembers princess Diana, Don’t you? being chased by the paparazzi to the point of DEATH!!!!
Secondly, what about their reputation? Famous people have a huge standard to live up to, as they are always in the spotlight, even the slightest indiscretion can be magnified and exaggerated by the press.
Finally, fame attracts “parasites”, and those who seek to take advantage of your fame and use it for their own benefits and privileges. So all up there are very few people they can trust, and often they choose the wrong person to confide in ,and their worst nightmare catches front page!!!
“There is certainly a price for fame.”
Lies & Rumours
Who can we trust?
Holes is a story set in Texas, it is a story of conflict, which involves itself with one person in particular, Stanley Yelnats, a boy in the big city New York. This Story is an invigorating story which jumps back and forth from present to future to past. It is full of characters from all races and the most interesting people that you wouldn’t find in an ordinary novel, you’ll find yourself questioning all you know!
Stanley soon finds himself in the juvenile detention centre (camp green lake) for simply being in the wrong place in the wrong time . His expectations are soon let down when he arrives at his destiny.
The boys soon found they weren’t Digging to build their character but to find a long lost treasure that has been lost for hundreds of years.
I found that i could really feel for Zero (one of the boys from group D) because of all the things he had been through and experienced. If you read this book you’ll find yourself experiencing the same emotions that i had when I read this amazing novel.
In the process of Market Day we learnt all about how to make a successful business , we all soon found soon that it wasn’t as easy as it looked . My group (Claudia Balfour, Isabelle Mattingly and Zara Beasy) sold handmade Tie-Dye singlets and Stress Balls
My group and I were very successful in our marketing and sold out in everything, but we could’ve improved by making more singlets and stress balls because we sold out of all of our singlets before the seniors came.
I think if we were to do this all again we would’ve made more singlets and Stress Balls.
We all could’ve worked on our communication skills.
Overall I think we did very well, but could’ve improved as I said before on our communication. On the market day I think we were very successful on our marketing and Team work.

Monday the 14th was the first day of the yr 6 camp to wilsons Promontory.With 100 students to organise the teachers were very busy .We soon boarded the bus. the bus tri soon came to a stop at leongatha we stopped for some fresh air and to get some food into our rumbling stomachs, and for a a play on the playground.
We soon arrived at Wilsons Promontrory eager to get of the bus and set up our tents. after a short demonstration we got to work on our tents, claud and I set our tenst up surprisingly fast. we had dinner at 4:30 and soon after hiked up Mt Oberon belle and I stormed up to the very top soon to see the beautiful sunset.
The next morning we woke up to a morning run. We came back to the smell of a beautiful breakfast.Then we all went on a walk to squeaky beach and went rock hopping. The rotations began, 6D had surfing with Bones after catching some awesome waves and doing the Coffin several times we headed in for lunch. After lunch we went for a bike ride and bought some goodies at the shop. Later that night we went for a walk on Biddies trail.
we woke the next morning ready for some some fitness activities on the beach. After breakfast we got stuck into our rotations abseiling/canoeing and boogie boarding . The class was split into two groups one group went abseiling first and the other canoeing first i was in the canoeing group, my partner for canoeing was Zara i must though Zara and I were the bomb at canoeing.Abseiling; Abseiling was pretty cool, I was proud of my self in abseiling because i was the first (demonstrated) to go down Mushrooms rock. Boogie boarding was really fun even when you didn’t have a boogie board and you were just body surfing.
Thursday came very quickly and every one was a bit tiered and sore, but that didn’t stop us! we had electives and beach activities to come. The electives I chose were Orienteering and Rock ramble.In Orienteering I was in a group with Zara, Ted and Nic, Zara and I got lost and had to go to get Ted and Nic to help us find the last puzzle piece we got there last but we still got a bag of treats. Rock ramble with Mr Welshwas very fun and interesting. That night we had the flag finals with Claud.w and Ruby representing our class for the girls and for the boys Ted and Jay. Claud w ended up winning the whole competition even beating all the boys!!
Friday came and we all packed up and got ready to go. Before we left we went for a walk to the top of Little Mt Oberon, and learnt all about the bush fires when we got back we took down our tents and boarded the bus. On the way back we stopped at Leongatha again for lunch. we were back at school in about anhour and a half all of us were excited to see our mums and dads and have nice warm showers. thank you so much all of the teachers. THANK YOU!!!!!!
