attitude presentation

On Friday the year 10’s were all brought to the school gym to hear a presentation by attitude which is a program that goes around from school to school about things that affect us all. The presentation was about technology. The presenter Jordan talked about things such as facebook, phones, bullying, sexting, our digital footprints etc. Everything affects people differently and people deal with it in different ways. Jordan used many examples such as the nek minute guy (also known as Levi  Hawken) or the starwars kid. He told us that the “starwars kid” had over 26 million views and because of it he got bullied at every school he changed to and eventually had to be home schooled because of how he was effected by it. The presentation has taught me to take more caution will what I am doing whether its online, towards people etc.

The book that I have been reading is The Fallen by Thomas E. Sniegoski. It was two series in the book called the fallen and Leviathan.

On Aarons 18 birthday he begins to hear strange voices and is convinced he is going insane. But having moved from foster home to foster home, he doesn't know who he can trust anymore. He starts to have a crush on a girl at his new school however hes afraid she will think hes crazy as well.

Then a mysterious man begins to follow Aaron. He knows about Aarons troubled past and his new powers. And he has a message for Aaron, as the son of a mortal and an angel, Aaron has been chosen to redeem the fallen.

Aaron tries to dismiss the news and resists his supernatural abilities. But he must accept his newfound heritage. As the dark powers are gaining strength and are destroying him.

Ears pricked, bright green eyes widened.
Tender grass blades crunching under foot as she stalks her pray.
Skulking in the darkness of the garden, waiting for the right moment to pounce.
A sudden noise breaks her focus and the bird is gone.
Sulkily she retreats to the four walls of comfort, looking for cuddles from someone.
her rough, sand papered tongue licking her bright, shiny coat.

my teacher

i choose ms Cottee for my inspiring teacher because she is a really bubbly and fun teacher and always puts a smile on my face. She explains class work really well and i always look forward to going to her class even tho i don't like social studies. She always comes around the class to see how we are doing and is very encouraging.

should synchronized swimming be in the olympics?

I think synchronized swimming shouldn’t be a part of the Olympics because all it is, is dancing under water and it’s not a very good spectator sport. All you see is heads and legs popping out of the water ,as you can’t see the full sport. It’s basically rhythmic gymnastics under the water which isn’t really necessary.

Synchronized swimming involves swimming, dance and gymnastics. To be able to do this sport you need to have water skills, amazing strength, good timing, endurance, flexibility and you must be able to hold your breath for awhile while you are under the water upside down. It is judged by how difficult the routine is, their timing and they get deduced if the routine is out of order. In the 20th century synchronized swimming use to be known as water ballet.

So, to conclude I think synchronized swimming should not be included in the Olympics as it hasn’t got much to do with sports, it’s more of a dance performance.

greatest moment in olympic history

The greatest moment in Olympic history was in 1992 in Barcelona when a 19 year old boy had promised his mother that he would win gold in boxing, 2 years before the games were to start. She died of cancer not long after but he kept his promise. He became boxing's golden boy, winning 10 world titles before retiring and starting a new career as a promoter.
