Student Leader Nomination

Strive to achieve. A motto I have followed for 7 years going on 8. Although I have speaking difficulties, I'm not the most popular or liked person, and I still struggle with my grades, I strive to achieve. Being able to have even been nominated as Head boy for Panmure Bridge School was a huge honour. I have confidence that I will lead Panmure Bridge School in the best way I can during 2016 if elected. As a leader I can promise you that I’ll be respectful, have a positive attitude, be humble and most important of all, remember that leadership is action, not position.

Yesterday, I received an great surprise. I was nominated for a school leader for 2016. To show what I could do, I tried to persuade people in the senior block to vote for me to become an Student Leader in 2016.I showcased my attributes if I did become one. I am proud for the people who decided to nominate me in this Student leader nominations.

Why do we need a Critical Friend

What is a Critical friend great for. A critical friend is arable to help complete a task or show the mistake you make in your final result. They can show you the possible changes which you never had thought. This can help when a test is happening and you know the types of what you need because of a Critical  Friend.

Supermarket Trip

It was a cold damp morning as we drove away from school we were silent( well maybe), Room 6 & 7 were going to visit Pak N Save. As we walked into the nearly empty lobby. many of us saw Room 5 and its buddy class leave, meaning it was about to be our session.  My buddy and I were assigned to a teacher aide or parent. In my group were Amato with his buddy and Ana as well.

We began our search in the aisle to categorized some types food into which we can eat everyday and what we should sometimes( occasional foods).We first began our search in the cereals aisle. This aisle was very healthy and not. As many of you know that wheat biscuits and rolled oats are one of the healthiest cereals you can have. So we went with Harraways Rolled Oat's as an everyday food. We then examined Coco Pops O's.It was pretty clear from the results that  Rolled Oats were the clear winner. 

As we continued our search for the more healthy foods we found Vita Meal as a more healthy snack food to eat against Chocolate Chip cookie. Pump water bottle was healthy than Red Bull even those it was very close.Light Blue milk was actually healthy but didn't have enough calcium as the chocolate milk. Vogel multi grain bread was healthy than iced finger buns.

In the end we were playing a type of scavenger hunt as we named fruits that were same colours and put it in the category which was recommended.This was very fun and was actually hilarious. As we headed back to the starting point our two classrooms were given a 60 dollar voucher that we could use for our healthy sandwich. Thanks to Mrs Paton and Mrs Millward for taking us to this trip sponsored by Heart Foundation.
