I was in the car with my dog moose (moose – i – bear) and we just came out of the gym when i went to start the engine of my car. I looked at moose to make sure he was sitting on the chairs and not somewhere he would get stuck on our way home. As i looked i saw him stuck at the top of the sits and when I saw that I thought to myself ” but how did he get up there…” there was no steps, no ledges he must have just had so much energy he could climb it by himself.
The btn was about people who have perspectives about Australia day. For most of us it is a celebration for the British in 1700s who found Australia for us. but for the some of the aborigines it is a day that they remember as invasion day because that is when the British took their land. on the 200th year of Australia day 26th of Jan 1988 you would have been able to see a lot of aborigines protesting. Some people thought we should change the day of Australia day so most aborigines could celebrate it as a great day and not invasion day. it’s of people thought we should change the day of Australia day to 1st of Jan because thats when our country federated, some people think the 25th of Jan a day before the British arrived so the last day the aborigines owned the land and some people think Australia should share the 25th of April which is ANZAC day as well as some people think it should be on the day Australia’s first federal parliament was opened or wattled day in September. Australia has not been changed yet but they are thinking about changing it.
I understand the different ways people can react to the same day
why did they send convicts to Australia and not other countries?

But what would of happened if i was it?
In Australia we have 3 levels of government federal, state and local each of these types of government take care of a different parts and they have different powers and control. The highest level of government in Australia is the federal. the federal takes care the whole of Australia which includes defence, immigration, money, trade, communication and environment. The second highest is state and it takes care of the 6 states in Australia and the different jobs state does are education, health services, roads and trains and lastly agriculture and some others. then there is local which has over 500 local governments in Australia and they take care of local things in your area like rubbish, pets, buildings and permits. But before the 3 levels or a federation everyone was doing there own thing. then in 1901 all the states in Australia federated and became one country. But as time went on more and more people started coming to Australia and soon enough they needed more types of government so the state government gave most of there power to the federal government. then in the 1970s local governments became popular and that’s what gave the people there own money and places to live.
i understand the responsibilities of the 3 types/levels of government
I understand the 3 levels of government and how they were created
whos idea was it to federate the whole country?
if you can’ read yellow highlight it and you can read it
One day I was doing the washing you know like putting your cloths in water and soap well I was doing that. After I was done I realised that the dryer was in the dark,Brown and did I mention scary well then SCARY BASEMENT!!!! So I started to walk very slowly down the ladder I went when I heard a snap and I flew a cross the basement floor while I was down the l saw my old friend Goldie (he is my goldfish)but anyway I put the cloths and in the process of doing that I met a couple of spiders down there to.
Australia day is where family gets together and has a big bqq right well there is actually a different reason why we have it. Back in 1700 ( around there I am not 100% sure what date ) captain Arthur Phillip was leading the first fleet to Australia they weren’t sure what to expect but they thought it would not be good. They arrived in Australia at 26th of January 1788 in Camp Cove that is in Port Jackson ( around Canberra ) and they stayed there for years and years and while they were staying there they discovered other parts of Australia to. Australia day actually used to be called foundation day but the people didn’t like the name so they changed it to Australia day which is held on the 26th of January every year.
I know now that Australia day is named by the people because they didn’t agree

Hi I am Emily and you probably know me because I am in your class but anyway I have at this school since prep I have 2 younger sisters Michaela who is in year 3 and Georgia who is in year 1.
Over the years that I have been at this school I have really learned that being organized is one of the most important things you need to know. Being organized is a good skill to have because you are ready for unexpected things that might happen and you are ready to make the changes immediately. I have had experience running a SRC meeting and running a couple clubs that the SRC created and I feel like I did those jobs really well.
I am very good at speaking out loud to people which brings me to my public speaking. I am very good at public speaking because in my last years at school I have spoken at assembly and have been confident, not rushed and tried to stay calm. Another thing I am good at with public speaking is debates I know that most of us year 6’s have done it and year 5’s will do it later this year but in my debates I feel that they have really helped even more in my public speaking and have to also make some speeches on the spot.
When it comes to saying my ideas I will not be afraid to say them, I will not make fun of anyone’s ideas and will take it them to the src meetings. I am also very good at listening to what people have to say. If you want to give an idea I will write it down and tell everyone at our next meeting, I will be your voice.
I will always remind you of what is coming up such as any fun raisers as well and special events. I also love helping our school in any way as possible so that in future our school will have more equipment and other useful stuff.
I also think that showing the school values ( ROCC) is a very important thing to do and I always show them in my day to day life. I will show them in class by collaborating with others in group work like in maths. I always respect and care for others inside and outside of school and I am always optimistic even if I don’t win something or don’t get something right, and I am always optimistic to others by saying you will do it next time or I know you can do it.
I know what it takes to be a SRC because I have done it before and my classmates in the previous years have really helped me with my being more confident in my-self.
SO this is why I think I would make a great SRC for this year.
Back in the day (700bc) it was the ancient Greeks in Athens who came up with the idea of the rich not poor men were voting for what they think is right they also said that if you were a women, a slave or poor you could not vote. the word democracy came from two greek words… Demos= people and Kratos=rule or power and thats how they made the word democracy. But then time change and democracy was no longer common because then in England came kings and queens to make the rules which is called monarchy which means that kings and queens rule the country and make all the dissensions for you and you got no say in what you thought was right. After that a document came out called Manga Carta made England’s monarchy more or at least a bit more fair to the people that lived there. It promise the people basic needs and slowly from there democracy became more and more popular. Now days democracy has became one of the most form of government around the word. But instead of everyone going to meet and vote on the laws we now have a government called a representative democracy where all the people vote for one person to represent all the people in Parliament. they are called politicians and it is there job to make sure all there voters voices are heard in a national level. A good politician has to make sure all the people get freedom of speech, equal rights and the right to justice that is how democracy is in Australia but there are other types of government as well like in Saudi Arabia are a absolute monarchy you are born in the role to one day be king or queen there is dictation ship is very similar to the absolute monarchy but they not born a royal they also normally rule a country by force like north Korea the people don’t really have many rights and control the people and they don’t take very much care of them as well. But Australia’s government ( democracy) is to listen to the people make sure that everyone is equal and everyone has the same rights and not everyone agrees to it but it has been working well because we have good government and good politics to represent us.
I understand that democracy is the fairest in my opinion government
I understand what democracy is and what the other governments are and how they work
Why are some places still monarchy?
What made England came up with monarchy in the first place?
