First day of High School!

Hi people,

Today was the first day of High School! I was really excited and nervous (mostly excited)

There is 111 students all together in Year7, so about 57 new girls which is a pretty huge year to me! Today we got our timetable, found out who was in our Pastrol Care groups, and had a lot of fun! We also got told where our locker is and got a padlock for it which was really difficult to lock and unlock.

We didn’t have any work today but tomorrow we are starting classes and having our school photos done!

Are you starting something exciting, but also nerve racking at the same time? Did you enjoy it? Are you maybe in the Year7 too and know how I feel?

Also, just a quick Sydney FC update, unfortunately they lost 3-1 against Melbourne Victory last Saturday 🙁 Joel Griffiths scored a fabulous goal and Del Piero did a fantastic cross!

Another thing is that I have now graduated from Year 6, and the Junior School! I am now ready to move onto the BIG High School, which I have mixed emotions about because I am so excited, but also a little worried about it too, even though I am going to have a BLAST!! I will miss the Junior School, all of the teachers and students, but I look forward to seeing what challenges I am going to face in the High School, along with lots of friendships and work too!


And finally today is…THE FIRST DAY OF THE HOLIDAYS! Yay! I hope you all have a lovely holidays and Merry Christmas, AND  a Happy New Year!

Year6 final dinner

Hello everybody!

Yesterday (27.11.12) Year6 had their final assembly and dinner. It was a fantastic night full of dancing, Gangnam style, yummy food and hilarious moments!

We got assigned to a table with our friends and the parents got assigned a table too! We sat down ate our first meal, which, by the way was SO yummy! Then Liana and Caroline, our school captains talked. There was then a slideshow of all of us and the pictures were so cute and pretty! Then some music started playing… (AKA what makes you beautiful!) And so of course everyone jumped up and started dancing! There were a couple more songs and then we sat down again and Mrs Vaughan, the Junior school principal did a speech and the teachers of year6 also did a speech, and Mrs Krimmer, the principal of the whole school also talked. They were such nice and touching speeches! All of them were! After that, I am pretty sure there was desert, and then the dancing started!

We were all dancing together and it was so fun and funny! The parents went up to the foyer to have some food, and so we danced…and danced…AND danced…AND danced…until the parents came back down, but that was not the end of the very fun dancing! The parents joined in to songs like YMCA, nutbush, and the Dads especially danced to this one…GANGNAM STYLE! It was so funny I am still laughing 😀 After we danced a lot more, it was time…to go home 🙁 🙁

What a fabuloulistic night! Thanks to all of the people who organized it, and thanks to all of the teachers for teaching us for our final year of junior school, and both the principals! 🙂

I will post some pictures of the night soon!
