District Cross Country Reflection

                                      District Cross Country

22.5.2018

Today I took part in the district cross country and came 38th out of 49 girls participating in the 3 km run. I am very proud of myself and the achievements I’ve had from this year to last year. I’m also very happy about my efforts since the track had steep hills and sharp turns, and also because I wasn’t going to go in the first place. Also because i was racing against year sixes. i’m just very proud of the effort since I don’t train and i’m ecstatic for just finishing and giving it a go!

Story:

As I walked around the lonesome dessert the rushing of wind going past my ear I saw out of the corner of my eye a majestic baby elephant slowly walking across the sand the moonlight shone it its eyes. As it saw me it froze and slowly walked towards me and it was then that I first realized that it was not a normal elephant, it had red bows and a tribal print of blue and pink across her back and then I saw the stars in her eyes and it was then that I realized that it was magic.

Hawaiians are running from the volcano Kilauea volcano spews out lava ash and toxic gases on to the Hawaiian streets at a temperature of 1150 degrees and has destroyed 26 homes and spread 19km away from the volcano. This all started with a 6.9 magnitude earthquake on the volcanos south side on Friday. The biggest one since 1975 which caused a rise of sea level and rock slides.  Then the ground begun to split and caused lava coming up 70m in to the air. Most of the new activity is near the Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens areas or towns of the Island of Hawaii. Kilauea is the most active of the five volcanoes on the island and in the world. It has been erupting constantly for 35 years. Most of the eruptions are a type called effusive eruptions meaning they flow continuously but not exploding and have been flowing in to our ocean. How long has this volcano had its grounds in Hawaii for? Has there been any other times in Hawaii or other countries where there has been a situation like this? I now understand the true devastation frustration and sadness of the Hawaiian citizens now that their homes schools parks and local areas are being destroyed by this large erupting volcano.

As I walked home a train of new thoughts went through my head. I looked around my neighborhood and saw a floating rug outside of my neighbors neighbor’s house. It was purple blue red and blue “when did it arrive?” I said out loud. The old woman walked out of her house and eyed me she walked out quickly grabbed the carpet and rolled it up and walked back in side. I continued my walk home thinking of the very unusual event that I had just witnessed I guess that neighborhood was not as normal as what meets the eye.

In a cyclone Darwin’s winds can reach 130km an hour. The cyclone left 23,000 homes without power the day after. 70 homes and one school where lost in a bushfire in Tathra on the NSW cost and a further 10 homes in Victoria which left 20,000 without power and took 280 aircrafts to put out.  Has Australia ever had higher winds than 130km an hour?  How long did it take for them to fully put out the bushfires?  I now understand the true effects of natural disasters.

My walk home to school is a lot more eventful than an ordinary 12 year old. I walk past a graveyard where there are a lot of graves I always look for a new grave each day. Then I walk past my old friends house she shouted every day I think that’s why we are not friends anymore. I walk past an old playground where there used to be a nice crimson slide but it’s now brown from the mud. Finally I walk down at all misty hill then frantically run till I just make it to school on time.

 

                                                        A New World

Written by Amelia May 2018

 

The icy breeze blew thought the meadow. This winter was the coldest winter the            meadow had ever faced icicles formed on all of the remaining leaves and all the              animals where nowhere to be seen. On early frosty morning a young girl walked        through the meadow she had strawberry blonde hair and bright blue eyes she looked as if she was walking through the meadow to get rid of stress or something was bothering her. Suddenly the young girl burst in to tears and collapsed in the meadow crying her heart out.

A small mouse crawled out from the hollow tree trunk where took shelter from the cold and ran up to the girl making small prints in the thick snow that covered the meadow. The girl screamed at the sight of the mouse and stood up her knees covered in snow the mouse squeaked at her as if it was to say “it’s ok I’m not going to hurt you.” The girl put her hand out and to her surprise the mouse licked her finger the girl sat in the snow to stroke the mouse.

No more than 5 minutes later a young boy dashed in to the meadow he looked the same age as the girl with the same strawberry blonde hair and bright blue eyes as her as well. He ran up to her stop her. “Why are you out here at the hour,” he yelled at her this only made the girl cry more. “Leave me alone,” she called back and turned away to go back to patting the mouse. “No” he replied “me and mum have been worried sick about you we thought you were kidnaped or something along those lines. “The boy seemed very distressed behind his angry face “Well firstly its mum and I and secondly I don’t want to come home this is all too stressful for me I really miss dad. I  don’t really want to come home I hate having this feeling like somethings missing it’s all too much.” “Well you’re not the only one but we can’t sit here all day crying about it nothing’s going to happen unless we make an effort and no matter how much we think we’ll lose him you and I know that he will always have a place in our hearts.”

A tear ran down the young girl’s cheek it was clear that the words had really struck her. They stood there in silence for what seemed like forever until the girl finally said “thanks that’s exactly what I needed.” The girl slowly stood up her knees covered in snow until this moment you would not have had noticed that her face was as pale as the snow and her lips slowly became blue. The girl hugged the boy and they began to walk out of the meadow the girl took one last glance before following the boys fast pace.

They knew that their lives would be different after they lost their dad but they had no idea of the magical adventures that where coming for them.

Story:

To be honest I don’t like to walk though the woods to get to school. Every day something changes like last week the where two large legs with a tree trunk between the legs I could not see anything above the tall legs no sign of a body what so ever. So, I walked past the next day and took the same rote and did not see them anywhere. I told my friends and none of them believed me well I guess none of them would believe it unless they saw it I guess you don’t see this every day.
