Camp Quality

Coming up at St Therese is a little day called Mission Day. It is a day when the year 5/6’s create some stalls that can sell or do anything you want, so it is pretty much a day of fun. BUT… it is not just all about the fun and food we are really doing this to raise money for the charity we chose and whichever charity wins gets all the money that all the stores raised. So my friends Emma, Ella, Catelyn and I have chose to raise money for Camp Quality. Camp Quality helps children and their families that have cancer and they take them on a camp to do all sorts of different activities so that they can feel comfortable with kids that have cancer too. One of Camp Quality make the kids laugh so that they don’t well so down and upset about having cancer. Laughter also helps the children’s resilience. Our group chose to raise money for them because we all think that it is really sad that children even our age have to go through the pain and struggle of having cancer.

I remember when I was little I would always take a walk through the gardens at the park, sometimes I would go along the grey gravely paths or other times walk among the trees and stop to look at the bright purple flowers in the middle of a damp green bush. I would have fun with the butterflies and watch them land on leaves and plants where they would stand out because of their magnificent colours. My mum would always take me to the slides near the park and I can still remember my first time I went down the slide by myself instead of my Mum having me on her lap. But that all changed when I turned seven, there was a big fire at one of my favourite parks in the world, but I couldn’t change what had happened. There was no more bright flowers amongst the green bushes or butterflies standing out because of their colours, there was only dark, dark black bushes and trees standing along the hill with no colour or fun at all.

BTN Plastic Oceans

Plastic Oceans!
This news report is all about how plastic bags and other plastic objects are affecting the marine life in the ocean. In some countries they’re trying to make sure that plastic from other water ways like rivers don’t get into the ocean by making some barriers on the shore of some beaches. I think that it is a terrible thing to have plastic leaking into the ocean. I really like the idea of having some barriers because it stops plastic from killing our animals in the ocean. But I also think that you should clean it out every once and a while because in the video it shows you what they look like and it is really disgusting, I bet that it will get a bit smelly too. When I was watching this it really made me wonder, why people don’t take care of our beaches and other environments that are getting littered by plastic. Because everyone talks about it on the news, at school and in this case the BTN clip. If I could I would probably ask why supermarkets and factories around the world STILL use plastic bags when you are told not to because it hurts our environment! It really makes me upset to hear that people don’t listen to what others say and it also makes me upset to hear that animals in the ocean die because humans are littering. I hope if you just red this that you will change the way you feel about the environment and stop using plastic that can’t be re-used. Thanks for reading what I really think about this problem and I would really love to hear what you think too.
