picking up rubbish at school


Today we was picking the rubbish at school. If you can  help  you can get a yellow football from Wendy. If you like to picking up rubbish and helping make our school clean, you can also get a certificate with Wendy. I was helping all my friends and I like making our school clean.

Packing up the tents, moving on


DSCN1621 DSCN1623

The emergency helpers are taking down the tents.

The people who were staying in the tents went to their new houses and they have new furniture and washing machines in their houses. They have new kitchens and kitchen things and they have  new toilets too!

Me and my little family  went to the new houses to have a look.  They have 3  bed rooms and they are really flash.

The cyclone went to Milingimbi  too and it went down to  the Maningrida. But now everything  is finally getting fixed up and the community is very happy for that. Now we can have the oval back for football and water the very dead grass too.

Wendy’s sick day off


Yesterday Wendy  was  sick. Me and my class went to other classes.

I went to  Ellemor 1 and we  were  having a good time.  

We had free time and  we played with ipads.

I was feeling sorry for Wendy.

But today she is back at school in our class because she was missing us and feeling sorry for us!

I am happy that she is back.

Working in Carol’s class


Yesterday, Wendy was not here because she was very very sick at her home.

Then we all went to the other classes. We were having fun in the other classes. We went to Ellemor 1 and 2.


I went to Ellemor 1, Carol’s class and we were having freetime! Carol is a friendly lady and she was kind to all of us Ellemor 8 kids.

The Assembly


This morning Liz (our principal) told us at the assembly that if we keep throwing icypole sticks and wrappers on the ground she will shut down the canteen because there’s a lot of rubbish at school and it makes it harder for Jacob and the yardsmen.

I just hope that all the kids got the message because almost everything in the canteen is made out of plastic. The rubbish is becoming a big problem but I understand that if we want icypoles we have to put all our plastic in the rubbish bins so that is a win for all the teachers and a win for us kids.

Today lots of kids were stealing the clamps



Today  lots  of  kids  were stealing  the  clamps from our irrigation at lunchtime.  Then  we  were  going to ask them for clamps.  Ewen, Tony, the Secondary kids and the Rangers did that irrigation for us.

We was  going to ask because  Western and Williams  stole them and we were feeling angry at first, then sad about our garden getting broken.

We went to their assembly so that everyone  could  get the  same story and help us  to fix  the problem straight away.

The Garden is for all kids  so we all need to look after it and show respect just like in the classroom.
