My poem

Dear Lucy
I saw gun
 powder shattered all around me,
                        I heard roaring cannon’s and guns,
         I felt shattered bones beneath my feet as I tried to avoid them
             I tasted rusty blood as it scattered down my throat,
                          I smelt rotten dead corpses,                                    
       I wondered if this was a game.  My comrade said this isn’t a game we are going  to die.

              By mckaia koridon

Anzac poem

 I saw Turkish soldiers firing bullets and blood shots, I heard the Turkish cannons make a sound go ka boom! I felt hungry for food and water, I tasted hard tack, I smelt blood coming out of soldiers, I wondered if I was the last one alive.

Mr Freke farewell assembly

Today was Mr Freke's farewell assembly.  Some of the student Councillors did a speech of all the wonderful things that have happened before he left.  It was sad day, but he will still leave a hole in our school.

Mr Frekes wonderful poem

Room 14 made a poem for Mr Freke. Each group write a part and the writers club put it all  together. Here is the poem we made.
Mr Freke Poem from Room 14
Role model for all,
Best principal of all,
He gets the job done,
And we always have fun!

When you’re fishing, your never missing,
You’re catching and kids are snatching all the ideas you’re getting.

Mr Freke you’re so smart,
Just like art,
Also you’re intelligent,
A lot more than an elephant.

Whenever we have something to share,
We always come to you,
You take in our ideas,
Just like sticky glue.

Mr Freke you’re always cheerful,
You are also never tearful,
Mr Freke you are kind
You leave nobody behind.

You’re a star at showing the 4R’s,
You show the TRUMPS without any bumps,
You are really funny,
Just like Bugs Bunny

Mr Freke you’re a fair player
You could be a future mayor
You never ever cheat,
Which sometimes is a very hard feat

You work very hard
Always ready, on guard,
You deserve a break,
How about a piece of chocolate cake?

You will leave a hole in our school,
You cannot be replaced,
Endeavour Ave is lucky

We will be left in disgrace!
