This video was about koala proofing our roads.

Sadly about 100 koalas die or are injured on north Queensland rods each year. Koalas try to cross roads because their habitat is being destroyed to make homes. The most affected area is koala cost just south of Brisbane. I now understand how this issue affects koalas. I also understand what we have to do to help. When do they aim to end this issue?

Story:

“Mum I’m going on this ride” I said I’m not so sure,” mum whispered. “I’m sure,” I replied.  I walked over to the ride and lined up this was an indoor ride. I got to the front of the line as the door slammed, I knew something was wrong. A security guard opened the door and closed it behind him. “It’s ok,” he said in a croaky voice “the ride just broke down everyone is safe now can you slowly exit the building.” I dogged people to get out to mum. “There you are I’ve been waiting for ages honey!”

This video was about our school standards.

Over the past decade our country has fallen behind other countries. Australia is in since and reading and in maths. They are going to give more money to the schools who need it. I now understand why we need to change it. I also understand who made up this idea. Where did they come up with this idea?

This video was about kangaroo population.

There are around 47 million kangaroos in Australia which is about 2 per person. There are too many kangaroos which is harming the environment. This is causing debate on how we can put the back to normal population. I now understand what this can do to the environment. I also understand how we can protect the environment. Why can’t they transport them?

Story:

They have been with me ever since I was born. Taught me things loved me and cared for me. So many games and adventures there may be new editions or people who move away but I know it will always be the same. The adventures and games where new and exciting every single time. The bed time stories the night time cuddles that’s what really matters to me. As much love as I need I will get. Every person’s value of this is different but this is what really matters to me this may not be what matters to you.

Story:

We were playing netball at lunch and the ball was being passed around to Ellie, Sophie, Bell, Luna then it was passed to me but instead of catching it just hit me on my arm. The next couple of minutes were unclear to me the Luna said “Kate are you ok?” “I’m fine,” I replied “Can I watch you play just until my arm feels ok?” “Yes we would not make you play,” so what lies ahead of me is unclear but I know I want to keep playing netball. Who knew I would become a professional netball player.
