Special Nightime Job


night chicken 3   

Last night me and Wendy and Rihanna went to school for taking the little white chickens to school because they are flying out of her chook house.

We were doing that job at night because they were all sleeping.

Wendy took three of her other old chickens back home and we put the white chickens to their new house. It was a good night and we were happy to be helping do a special job. We also saw this big green happy frog on the step.

When we went to garden this morning before school, we went into the chicken house and we saw the three white chickens and  I saw they laid 2 eggs in the new chicken house!

from camping


On Monday Ellemor 8 and 5 went to Bible Camp for camping. We went to learn with yolngu ways.

The girls were making a rangan and boys were making a spear. The rangan for oysters and the spear its for killing  the fish or something in the water. Then the boys went to fishing  and girls went for oysters and I got lots of oysters. The boys  kill a big fish. First they cut the fish then boys cook the fish after that we eat the fish.


At night we went for sleep I was sleeping with lots of girls in the tents they were too noisy at girls tents!


Next day I saw lots of shells, its nice colours with me.


Thank you yalu ladies for teaching me.

Shopping for Camping


On Thursday we went with Ewen to the shop and we bought some food for the camp at Bible Camp next week.

We bought chow mein and fried rice ingredients, it was exciting and fun  to going up to the shop. When we went up the shop there was lots of kids not coming to school. We said they should go to school and then they can come on our camp too.


Then we went back to school and us 4 kids went back to Ellemor Eight. Ewen got the food so we going to Bible Camp it will great day and happy time.

On Friday we had a practice of cooking the chow mein in the classroom so we will be cooking it ourselves on the camp. It was so yummy and fresh.
