Camp Reflection – Snorkeling:

 

 

When the time comes at the end of the day, we squeeze into our tight, damp wetsuits and pull on our life jackets. We climb into the boat and the rough ride to the jetty has begun. A few long moments later, we pulled into the jetty. Joe told us to climb out of the boat pull on some flippers and a snorkel. Then to go sit on the edge of the jetty. Joe showed us how to use our snorkel and covered the safety rules. We all gave it a go in some shallow water and had a look what was around us. We saw lots of interesting things e.g. fish and a heap of seaweed. Once we understood how to snorkel, we climbed back to the jetty and back on the boat. Off we go to the cage.

As we pulled up along the side of the floating deck. We climbed back out of the boat with the things we need to go snorkeling and up onto the floating deck. We jumped into the cage and stuck our heads out of the bars. It felt like we were in a large jail cell. However, it was just pure aqua. When Indigo stuck, her head out she pulled her head straight back into the cage took her snorkel out of her mouth and yelled “OH MY GOD, THAT IS SO SCARY, I FELT LIKE A SHARK IS GOING TO COME OUT AND KILL ME!” I personally thought it was beautiful.

The water got cold very quick so we were not in the water for any longer than five minutes. We then headed back to the beach in the boat. Then there was the struggle of getting our wetsuits off.

We then had the pleasure of walking back to camp.

Letter to Senada (All about me 2017)

Hi Senada,

My name is Jacinta. I do a few of things outside of school. They are Dance, Gymnastics and Tennis. I have been doing Dance for 7 years (since I was 3). I have been to two dance schools in 7 years. I have been doing gymnastics for 6 years (since I was 4). In addition, I have been doing tennis for 5 years (so since I was 5). I enjoy all three of these things. One thing I like to do at home for fun is baking. I love to bake things like cupcakes and cakes. Every year for my birthday, I make my birthday cake with my mum’s assistance.

On the holidays, I did a lot but I will just share three of my favorite things I did. The first thing I did was I went up to Moama for my cousins 19th birthday on Boxing Day. They were camping down near the Murray River at a place called Picnic Point. We went down there for the day. We floated down a small part of the river probably around 50 meters.

The second thing I did for a lot of the holidays is I spent a lot of time with my cousin. Mia she’s 9 turning 10 this year. We stayed at her house for around 1 week, at my grandmas for two nights and my house for 2 nights. They also live near the Murray River. We have a lot of FUN together.

The third thing I did on the holidays was I went down to McRae for 1 night with some friends from school. They were staying at the caravan park so all we had to do to get to the beach was walk across the other side of the caravan park, which only took about 3-6 minutes.

On the holidays I watched a lot of movies. They were Red Dog: True Blue, Middle School, Sing and Ballerina. My favorite movie that I watched on the holidays would have to be either Middle School or Ballerina. I also watched Kooza Cirque Du Soleil It was outstanding but unfortunately, the contortionist’s were not performing that night.

I have a family of six including my two dogs. They are Border collie cross. My parents do not exactly know what there crossed. However, they are 11 years old turning 12 this year. There Birthday is the 6/4/2005. They are getting old. Their names are Buster and Jed. Jed is the oldest in the litter and Busters the youngest. I live with my Mum my Dad and my twin sister Ebony.

Some of the things I am good at are social skills, art, P.E/sport, comprehension, and reading. I would also like to improve a bit more in my reading, as I want to be the best I can be. Other things I know I have room to improve in would have to be, my mathematic skills, Italian, writing, having a bit more confidence to just give it a go. My goal for 2017 is, to gain more confidence.

This is my last year at Primary school. However, I am super excited for year seven.

As you may not know my dad was born in Australia, but his parents were both born in Malta, along with is step Mum. Malta is a small country at the bottom of Italy and next to Sicily, the capital of Malta is Valletta. All of dad’s relatives still live in Malta. In the past 10 years, he has only seen them 3 times.

On the other hand, Mum was born in Australia as well as her Mum and Dad, except her Papa (Mums Grand Dad) was born in Wales in the U.K. However Mums great Aunt and my great, great Aunt turned 100 years old in 2015, last time I saw her she showed me her letter from the queen and governor general of Australia and his wife Lynne. She is now 102 years old.

Christmas would probably have been one of the best things on the holiday. We started the day by opening all of our awesome presents, followed by getting ready to go to my Dads Dad and step Mum’s house for Christmas Lunch. It was DELICIOUS!

Safer Internet Day

Today we watched/listened to a webinar and it outlined how to be safe and responsible on the internet. We learnt that you should always turn your profile setting on private other wise people can hack your account and find out your personal information. Not having your privacy settings on mean s you will have a much larger digital footprint.

The behaviors they talked about online were should never hurt people online and always be responsible. Should NEVER give out your personal information e.g address, phone number, e.t.c. If people found out your personal information they could stalk or hack you. If someone does do that then tell a trusted adult immediate. If someone does hack and finds out your personal information then they could post your personal information on your page like you posted it. If you aren’t 100% sure of who they are then immediately tell  a TRUSTED adult.

People can set up a fake identity and use someone else profile picture and pretend to be someone there not. You can’t tell who people are online that why you should always be very careful what do put up online.
