Last year of intermediate

As it is getting towards the end of the year, it is getting towards the end of my intermediate years. I have attended Glen Innes School for about 5 years. Attending G.I.S was like the best choice of schools that my parents have made. This school has taught me a lot of things no matter how naughty, how disrespectful I would be but they still taught me and hopefully I will use the knowledge that I have been taught along the way. In G.I.S I have been through a lot with the students, teacher, as well as the principal which makes it harder to leave this school. The best memory of G.I.S was when we went to sport camp for 1 week. Sports camp was like the best. Getting to know students from other schools, making new friends but not only that also getting to know our teachers and our principal better. At sports camp we lost some of our games, we won some of our games but no matter how hard it got we played fair. If there is one thing that I would have to say about Glen Innes it would be ‘that no matter what people think or say about G.I.S. this school is a normal school. It’s just like the rest of the schools as along as you get taught that’s all you need.’ So make the most of intermediate because you don’t go backwards in life, you go forward. P.S A massive thank you to both Mr Hendricks and Ms Barry for making sport camp happend. ROOM 12 IS THE BEST!

An Inspiring Visitor

It was surprising news when Mr Hendricks told rooms 11 and 12 that we were having a special visitor. Mr Hendricks explained to us about Muskan Devta and why she was at our school. Once our conversation with Mr Hendricks was over we were all to be assembled in room 11 while he invited her in. When she walked into room 11 she introduced herself like all visitors do. Muskan Devta describe her life in a positive and negative way. She explained how she was born with partial hemiplegia disease. In fact in primary school everyone treated her differently from the rest of the students, and how she had no friends therefore every morning tea and lunch time she would always roam around the school or go to the library. But as she grew older and went into intermediate everything changed due to how much confidence she had in herself. She started having friends, and she also became class captain, and even better a radio journalist as well. She says she had a lot of blessing due to how much confidence she had in herself that year. The most inspiring thing about Muskan was the fact that even though she had partial hemiplegia she still didn't give up in school even if she didn't have friends she never gave up. After having Muskan at our school I learnt that you should always be confident and have a positive attitude and as long as you have these two you can do anything.

Maths 99 or BUST

Term-3 Week-4.

In maths class this week we have been taught how to play a game called  99 or bust . In this game we have to draw three columns and at the top of each column you have to write Ones, in the next column write tens and then hundreds . The teacher will throw the dice 7 times and with each of those numbers our job was to write each of those numbers in a column. It was our choice where we would put it and when we finish putting it in each column we had to add all our numbers up . The main aim of this game is to get a number below 99 there was only one rule and that was to not go over 99 if we do then we are bust. The top three students with the lowest numbers win.





In total I didn't go bust.
If you would like to play this game all you would need is.
1 dice.
a maths book and
someone to play with.
Its a very easy game and it also helps with your adding...

For the last couple of weeks room 12 have been learning about fraction of a set.
We each were given an equation and we were to write the answer and also see the way we got the answer. My equation was Rachel had 20 flowers and she wanted to plant one quarter of them in each row. I had to work out how many rows she would plant and this is how I worked it out.
I knew that 20 divided by 4 was 5 therefore one quarter of 20 would be 5.
I though that this was really easy because I knew my multiplication ....
