Netbook Reflection 2012

I must admit, this year has been pretty challenging but it has also been a lot of fun. I love using my Netbook to share all my journeys with the world. It is also a great learning tool. For example...

Our Netbooks help us to learn at school and for most of us at home too. There is an advantage to taking your Netbook home. Like, getting ahead or catching up on your work. At my class we work independently. So we can work on whatever we want, when we want. It is also helps us to be cyber smart. We also like to take charge so instead of bugging your teacher or our friends, you can just search it up on the internet. Plus it’s way better than working on a boring old books and pencils.

But Netbooks are not perfect. Sometimes the internet doesn't work. I think we should make the Netbooks safer and stronger because it can break really easily. I would like our Netbooks to be a higher quality. And the webcam is also has a couple of problems.

But over all I have loved working with my Netbook. Thank you to all the people that made this happen. I'm very excited to use this amazing tool again next year!

Camp Moments

Camp... it’s fun, a great place to hang out with friends and make new ones. Camp is also full of hilarious moments. And most of the time they come when least expected. Like...

There was this boy called Henry in my camp team, I must admit he not a boy “boy” If you know what I mean. But we were still friends. Our first activity was Kayaking, thats were we found out that Henry was terrified with stingrays!

Here’s the story Erin (our kayaking instructor) had a great day for us planed. We were going to kayak to an island called Survivor Island! And on the way there we past stingray bay. Were obviously we saw heaps of stingrays. We even named one “Mr. Mansion” because our team name is Mansion. Weird right?! “Look Henry, there’s a stingray under your kayak,” I yelled out (In a good way). Of course that was before we knew that he was gonna hit it with his padal! “HELP! AHHH,” he screamed in absolute fright. He ALMOST tipped out of his kayak.

We started cracking up! And guess what, when we went sailing we tricked him to thinking that there was a huge stingray under his sail boat. Once again he panicked and almost fell out of the sail boat... AGAIN! I was speechless. Two second later... Everyone and I absolutely Everyone was laughing at him! If I could describe Henry in one way it would be, HILARIOUS!!!

Telecom Christmas Tree!

There are some, well lots of up sides to having a special job at school. For instance I am an ambassador  at school. And I got invited to a very very special trip to the Lighting of the Telecom Tree!

 Only very special people in the school got invited. We got to take our family too. Telecom also  provided us with transportation and a small dinner. Did I mention everything was free! That's right transportation, dinner, whole family, plus fun for the kids and entertainment for the adults. 

By entertainment I mean famous artist like Massad and Titanium!!! If  you have not heard of them they are awesome singers. When I saw them I ran on stage to have a better look ;)! And when they have finished they of course people want photo's and autographs. So go over to see the them! I got to hug Massad and take a photo with two members of Titanium!!! I was so starstruck!  

Of course everyone came to Victoria park for the fun but most of all the lighting of the tree.  I could never think of a better way than this to start the Yuletide Season. Thank you very much Telecom for  the magnificent night! Merry Christmas to all!!!
