Why should we have free time on our netbooks.

I think that the class should have free time when it’s is raining outside and when it’s not raining then the class can play outside.

Every week  when it’s before lunch and playtime  you have to finish your work.I believe that we should have free time so we know how to show respect your device and looking after your belongings.

I think that the class should get free time when they finish all there task that they aspost to do when they are learning on there netbook.One of the things we should get free time for is to do good work and respect your learning.

I think that we should get free time on our netbooks cause have been doing good stuff in class and outside of class.Our problem with games are people a going off task and they are not learning much.The other situation with games is that some of the game

If kids get free time on their netbooks the games that they play can damage their eyes and cause some severe injuries.Kids should not play games and do their learning so they can be smart in every subject and when there a question you can answer.

The problem with games is that people are playing games at school and they are struggling with work.

Argument about uniforms

My arguement is about wheather we should wear school uniform.

Dealing with school uniforms?

We should wear school uniforms to school so that the people in the
community know what school we go to. We are also representing our school when we wear our uniforms outside school grounds. So it is important that we give our school a good name.
A school uniform is a uniform worn primarily for a school or otherwise educational institution. Dealing with school uniforms is a big issue because people might think that our school is not a healthy learning community centre and also you will have to wake up and wear any clothes you want and that will make you  horry and embarrassed. Then it makes the government think what a bad school and he will never put a school like that.

What kind of clothes should you wear?

Without uniforms kids can wear whatever they want, which is all good and well, but there is a lot of judgement.

Not respecting our rights

I think that teens should not wear school uniforms because that is violating our rights. We have the freedom of speech so we should be able to wear whatever we want to school.We have the freedom of speech so we should be able to wear whatever we want to school.
I think that students should wear school uniforms?

Because, what if they went on a trip and they did not wear uniforms? What if they went on a trip and the building caught on fire and there were a lot of people with no uniforms? No one knows, no one remembers, so I think uniforms are a good thing. School uniforms makes your school bright and shining and makes you look

Car Wash Recount

The first thing I did on Saturday morning was to have a shower and get my clothes ready to wash some cars. The car wash was at glen brae school Leybourne circle and it started at 7.30 in the morning.

When I got to Glen brae, I had to wait for my mum to get dropped off to work and while I was waiting I had something to do. I had to stand outside and call in some cars so we can raise more money for our camp next term.Then all of a sudden I turned back and  saw my sister driving into wash the car.She came with the tray of drinks and I gave  $20.00 and I got $10.00 change.Then she went of with a nice clean car. The next car that came in was Alisi car it looked so cleaned that it was already clean and ready to go.

The next car I washed was so cool cause I got to wet myself. The coolest part was when I got to wash the window of the car with soap
my hands were going around like circle donuts.

While we were washing, we had some sausage sizzle for lunch it tasted so beautiful that I could taste the mustard and tasted some onion.

In the last part was the coolest. Everything was so free that the table was nearly finish eating and Miss Tiua shouted us sausage sizzle with drinks. That was the happiest day I ever had with the school and teachers. We raised so much money that it nearly went up to $1000 but we actually raised $910.We still need to raise around the 5 thousand more because camp is expensive so we are going to  raise more money   by washing more and selling more food.

Child abuse report

Child abuse report

In Other types of maltreatment recognized by some states and experts include Abandonment and Trafficking. Certain risk factors that have been strongly linked with maltreatment include Parental Substance Abuse and Religious or Cultural Beliefs and Practices.

I think that child abuse should be banned by the government because lots of little kids are getting hurt and they are come school sad.
