…..a story

Suddenly I wasn’t the girl that cared about getting her hair wet or making excuses. The inclination to lounge in the sand was gone, and I desired to jump into the waves. I wasn’t scared anymore. I had conquered my fear of the ocean. I wanted to be drenched in sun, then pounded with saltwater, pushed under the deep, crisp sea and tossed around. I opened my eyes and watched my underwater surroundings spin around me, whisking me in a whirlwind of waves as if I was a giant magical wheel of wet clothes in a dryer.

·Halloween Poem·

Halloween, Halloween
Spooky, Spooky Halloween
Ghosts and Goblins can be seen.
They come on Halloween!

A haunted house designed to scare.
Go inside…if you dare!
Scary monsters you will find
Dressed in costumes of every kind.

A chilling mist in the air
Scary creatures everywhere.
They knock on doors…say “Trick or Treat!”
Then fill their sacks with food to eat.

Halloween, Halloween
Spooky, Spooky Halloween

A Bit About Me…

Hi, I’m Georgia from Australia

Adventurous, bubbly, kind and unique are some words that describe me.

I’m a student at Wilderness School. I believe everything happens for a reason. I have been Community Care Representative at Wildy for Semester 1. I really have really enjoyed this position as I learnt many new life long skills and knew that all my hard work and determination changed many lives of those in Nepal at the Bhadure School. I love going to school, especially Wildy. I am so grateful and appreciative that I am fortunate enough to go to this amazing school. My favourite subjects are geography and english. The sport I play is volleyball. I was born at Canberra in 2003 and moved to Adelaide in 2009, Adelaide is now my home.

This blog will have many different posts but are all mainly a form of school work. I am very privileged to have such great teachers who have set up these student blogs as another fun and interesting educational tool. One of my main goals this year as a leader of the Wilderness Junior School was hoping when I leave the Junior School that I have left a positive footprint. Another goal of mine is to be the best learner I possibly can, to be mindful and achieve to the best of my abilities. With the heart of a lion I can accomplish all of my goals, change the world and achieve my dreams.

Hope you enjoy my blog!
