Some time ago my school had what I think is our first school news paper called the "Compass". I read all the articles yesterday they were very interesting. In there was one about the HKA boys soccer team that was wrote by Aaron Francis and Murray Goebel. Winning a soccer tournament called ACIMAS, the soccer tournament was held in Guan Zhou which they won with only conceding three goals and scoring 21! Then the second article was about Point Of Information by Jake Riordan and Dylan Sparks which was very interesting again. The second last one was about Artists In Residence by Michelle Geffner and Emma Seay. What they said about it was what happens and what it was like compared to last year and who came and participated. The last article was about two girls which have passion and have fun dancing which are Elsa Helmer and Shannon King. This was written by Meagan Scantlebury. She wrote about what type of dancers they are and what type of dancing they like.
 
Yesterday I was a participant of a concert called the future rock school and I was the drummer for a drum solo and a song called Seven Nation Army By White Stripes. The first were 2 little girls singing 3 song of Michael Jackson's Tribute. Then there was a song called freak by silverchair. Then there was No woman no cry by Bob Marley that song was played by my teacher and two 10 year old brother and sister. Then it was my turn and I was stressed to play because I was the only kid that was not from The French School. But as the song played I got more and more confident. Then I finished the song and there claps and smiles ad laughs and people who were drinking and it was really fun.


Then There was a group of Chinese people. They played like 5 songs then It was time for the five drummers including the drummer from the Chinese group and we all did solos and they were really good. The next song was called song 2 By blur there was my friend and he is 8 years old and he played drums and he is good for his age. There was a little girl who sang for this song and this song is very crazy. Then there was my guitarist friend who played should I stay or should i go by The clash and that was a fun song to listen to. The last 3 songs were french songs and they were sang by adults and they were fun to hear. Then it was over and I was really tired and we went back home.
 
In math class we have been working on our unit assessment. The problem I found to be the hardest was an open response question, you had to find a fraction for each box and all of them had to add up to one. Then you had to write down how you got the fraction for part F which wasn't that hard, then you had to answer a question that asked you to list a combination of parts that make up 2/3 of the whole. I found this hard because I'm not good with fractions and equivalent fractions.
 
Today we went to the Chin Lin Nunnery which is a Buddhism temple. First we took a bus from school to the temple (it took 45 minuets to get there). After we got of the bus we had snack. Then we saw an orange bridge which was connected to a solid gold building. After a while of drawing on our I believe book we split to our tent groups because the people told us that we are a big group and that we make too much noise. Everything around there was with trees and special rocks. After that we looked around a souvenir shop that had very expensive praises. Then we went to an building that had chinese architecture. Then we saw some fish in a lake. After that we continued to see the main place where all the Buddhas were. There were lots of big and small Buddhas and each place there had fruits that were given to the Buddhas. After that all the groups met together and we took the bus to school.
