This year we have done a UOI unit on sharing the planet. We got split up into groups of our interest based on things similar How peace and Conflict change the world.
I was in a group with two friends, Kaitlyn and Bella.We focused on Inner peace and how it can change how we act and think.We also did some looking at foods that help your inner pace.Foods like Mandarins, Berries, and chickpeas(Surprisingly).They help because of the acids and nutrients.
I found this unit very fun and interesting to research!
This Monday and Tuesday we came to school and had the Year 7 orientation.There were lots of new girls and many I knew already. But one girl I had no idea who she was until my mum told me She is a family friend of my cousins and rises my favourite horses up on a farm that my cousins grandma owns. She knows my cousins well and her brothers os a really good friend with my brother.I had no idea who she was at the start!
We also did some activities to get a taste of the high school.We did science, Art, Drama, Sport and Food Technology.In science we tested different chemicals reactions to other chemicals.In Art we drew a portrait of a friend with our eyes closed and we couldn’t lift our pencil of the paper.In Drama we did space jump where you pause and play the drama and continue from where we stoped and it had to be a different story.In sport we played cricket and our team won both times.I hit this really good shot right in the middle of the bat.And in Food Technology we made cherry ripe bliss balls.They are chocolate coconut balls that taste like cherry ripe.
We also had the head door talk to us, Head of outdoor education and Head of co curricular.They told us about senior school.
Orientation was really fun and I can’t wait for next year!
This term we have been doing an online coding website called GROK.It’s were you have a number of course like newbies,beginner, intermediate and expert and you can compete in any of them and learn block code and python.
I have been doing beginner which is were you learn python and do something like the photo shown below.And the best part is at the end of each week if you complete it you get a lollie python!
What did I enjoy most about the experience?
I enjoyed the experience most by discovering what was in my room actually.I had so much junk and It was interesting finding what I had.I actually found about $5 in my room.
What did you learn most from the experience?
I got really good at area and measuring. I had to be really accurate when I got the paint,paneling and desk.
What would you do differently if you did it again?
I would keep up to date with my spreadsheet. I stopped using it halfway throughout.
Which passion projects did you find inspiring/interesting and why?
I found Imi’s Interesting.She displayed hers well and she used her time really well.I would love to braid like her one day.

This post I will tell you about all my week so far in doing my room and I put my budget in a excel so I will have the link later on in this post.I will also do a table of all my recourses, Info,materials and skills I will show/need this week.
Ok so firstly, I have been taking all the things out of my room so all I have is my bed and my big bookshelf(you can see my bookshelf in my first post).I have been to my local bunnings last Saturday getting all the paneling,wood and paint for my room.I started painting my room the white that we got but we realised the colour on the card was more creamy than the actual paint so We used some of the left over paint I had originally on my walls and mixed it into the white pain and made it a bit more creamy.I have only done the first coat so far and next weekend I will do the second one.
Ok now on to the next part.This is my table of my resources and skills I will need/learn this week.
This term we are doing this big project for 7 weeks.We have to choose a passion of ours to work on and I choose room design.I am re doing my room with a budget of $800 and I have created a floor planner of it.I have made it already and am starting to do some research of how much everything costs.I am making tie die bed sheets because I LOVE tie die.
I have started a book of things I would like cut out of magazines.I will be starting to remove all my furniture and everything I don’t want I will sell on ebay to get more money and other things to charity.I am also not getting a new bed or book shelf because those were really expensive but I am getting a new desk.
I will be posting the updates every two weeks or so.Comment any feedback on this post!
This Thursday and Friday we had Peer Support Training were we train to lead little groups from k-5 with about 8-10 people in our group.
In Peer Support Training we had a booklet were we had some scenarios and we had to think of a problem to solve it.One of the scenarios was that your group was very talkative and I chose to play a game with them outside.We also had a lot of team games like dressing up someone in a mystical creature with newspaper and tape.My group dressed my my friend as a fairy.We also made a lot of skits showing our body language can make a huge difference.
I have really enjoyed these past days and Please comment any feedback!
