Matilda was sent to us by Lucy a year 10 student from Geelong, Victoria. She is doing a project on communities. Matilda visited us to find out about our community. Matilda had a few questions for us. Our answers are below along with the photos our students took of the various special places around our Campus.

1. Why is the place you took a photo with matilda special to where you live?

The new playground is special, because it is a fun place to play and to get fit. (Luke)

The classroom, because if we did not have a classroom we would have to do our work outside. If it was raining our work would get soggy. (Alicia)

The gym, because we can do basketball, running, and netball and chasey. (Sean)

We like the PAC (Performing Arts Centre), because we all gather together and show our work that we do during assemblies. (Mikayla, Millie, and Izzy)

The playground , because we have lots of space to play and have fun. (Piper and Elise)

2. If you had one wish to change the world what would it be? Why?

To have more playgrounds around the world so  more kids can play on play grounds and get fit. (Luke)

To give people more money, because people are not getting enough money to feed their children, pets or themselves. (Alicia)

To make everyone trust each other. (Sean)

We wish that everything was made out of sweets, chips and chocolate except for people, because we love sweets. (Mikayla, Millie, and Izzy)

I would make the world made out of chocolate, sweets and last of all gummy bears and that they were all healthy. (Piper and Elise)

3. What do you like about where you live?

I like where I live, because we are close to parks. We are close to the school and  we are close to friends. (Luke)

That it is beautiful and I love listening to nature. (Alicia)

Home, because I have a big play room, big bedroom and a big back yard. (Sean)

We like Australia, because we have lots of animals like Koalas and Kangaroos. (Mikayla, Millie, and Izzy)

We love our homes. (Piper and Elise)

  5. Hey Mr Baldock’s class.
    I love all the photo’s that you took around your school.
    You all look like a happy bunch of students.
    I hope Matilda wasn’t too much trouble when she visited you.
    Thank you for answering all the questions and helping me with my project.
    I’d thought you’d like to know Matilda as been to the following countries: America, China, Estonia, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain and South Africa.
