Dear Junior School Council,

I went to Woorabinda Somers Camp last year as this is the most sustainable school in Victoria I have some ideas on how to make our school better.

This may include sustainably cooling our classrooms during summer as using air conditioning requires electricity. When you use energy it releases greenhouse gasses that go into the atmosphere and lock the heat in. This contributes to global warming.

I think we should have a power ranger program during the warm terms, where four or five kids dress up as power rangers and go around to every class room to check if all the windows are open the blinds are down and all the heaters and air conditioners and lights are off. Then they report back to assembly as to what year level was the most sustainable and then hold up a banner that has their year level on it which is then hung up and left there all week until the next assembly.

Thailand Trip

November18
  1. Hi guys,

Although we have only spent two days here so far we have done plenty like swimming in the pools all day body surfing at the beach a competitive game of water polo, sliding down a water slide that probably wouldn’t be allowed in Australia and going to the local market.

Before I left, Mr Andrea set me a couple of tasks one of the is finding out the currency in Thailand. That means what one dolar in Australia is in Thailand money which is called Baht. I found out that 1 dollar in Australia is 25 baht which means 50 baht is 2 dollars and so forth, but to make it easier with numbers like one hundred baht you simply have to drop the all the zeros in the number which in one hundred would leave the number one then you multiply one by four which gives you four so one hundred baht is four dollars but with numbers like 10,000  you drop the last two zeros which leaves you one hundred then multiply that by four which is 400 dollars.

Now using the information you have I want to know if you can figure out what  550 baht is in dollars as this was the price of something we bought in the market.

This is five hundred and fifty baht I'm not sure who is on the fifty baht but Thailands king is on the five hundred but sadly here recently passed away

This is five hundred and fifty baht I’m not sure who is on the fifty baht but Thailands king is on the five hundred but sadly here recently passed away.

Good luck👍🏻
