On the 3rd of May I went to Queensland. It took 2 plane trips to get there. We took a plane from Launceston to Sydney, then from Sydney to the Gold Coast. We went with another family. As soon as we got there we got picked up by a car and went to the car rentals place, where we got a car to drive around in. We got to the house that we were staying in and had a look around. The house was awesome! It had a salt water pool, a sandpit, and enough room to sleep 15 people. The day after we got there went to Sea World where I got my hair plaited with beads. At Sea World we saw penguins, polar bears, sharks, stingrays, SpongeBob and loads of other fish. I went on a ride that was Viking themed. We went on it about 5 times and still wanted to go on it again. At Movie World we went on the Wild West Falls where you go down backwards and down forwards. It takes a picture of you when you go forwards. We went on it so many times that we ended up pulling funny faces by the of the ride where they take the photos.
I had a fabulous time in Queensland.
Have you ever been on a holiday out of Tasmania before?
Monday the 21st of March was Harmony Day. Harmony Day is a day to celebrate cultural diversity. It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Yesterday our class celebrated the day by sharing things about the different cultures within our class. Isabel, Bree, Bianca, Eason, Eve and Shaykira brought in items for our class and shared with us stories about their families and culture.
As a part of our celebrations we enjoyed trying some homemade traditional foods, looking at artwork, different dances, and currency and learning how to crochet and speak in Chinese, Spanish and Filipino.
Thank you to Eason’s family for making our class dumplings (Chinese), Bianca’s family for cooking Chicken Adobo with rice (Philippines) and Isabel’s family for cooking Empanadas (Chilli). All of the food we had to try was delicious. Thank you to Eve’s gran for teaching us how to crochet too.
It was a fun day learning about different cultures.
