Valedictorian Speech 2015


Hello and welcome everyone to my latest post and today’s topic is all about me and my valedictorian speech this year. I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to comment and follow/subscribe! So what are we waiting for? Let’s release the VALEDICTORIANS!

                                                                                                               VALIDICTORIAN SPEECH

So, here we are, almost at the end of our journey at primary school. But at the same time, we’re about to start a whole new journey in high-school, just as we started our journey here in prep. I would like to congratulate my fellow year 6 classmates who have also completed their journeys. It has been an honour to be at Moonee Ponds Primary School for the past 7 years.  In some ways, these 7 years have been long and short. Long because of all the drama and extra homework, short because of the life-long friendships, the lasting memories and the truly amazing things we have learnt throughout our time here. Good or bad, long or short, I will always remember this place. Our teachers, of course, spend an inhuman amount of time here, and most students do as well. Most of them even do it off their own choosing.

I remember when it was my first day at school; I was in a surrounding that I didn’t know. But as time went on, I started to like this place. By the end of prep, I already made quite a few friends. I remember I used to chase Tait, Cian, Ben and Ferris around at Lunchtimes, and once I even crossed the red line and got in trouble for the first time. By year one, I started bragging about being older than all the preps and grade ones, until one day, Madeline Vorrias approached me and ben grey and asked us if we were preps last year, we nodded. Then she started bragging about being in grade two, and I had learnt my lesson.

Whatever we decide, most of us will agree that Moonee Ponds Primary School was a great place to foster our minds and bodies in this critical learning phase. I am a totally different person than I was seven years ago. I hope I am also a better one. I learnt so much- my interests, myself and so on. I feel like if I go back in time, my younger self won’t recognise me! I hope this passion for learning carries on when I have to search out into myself instead of biking into class and taking notes.

In grade two, I had one of the greatest learning years, being the spelling bee in the class! The biggest event was the grade two sleep-over. That’s when we first got to sleep at the SPC; boys were on one side, and a whole row of girls on the other side. There were only about 10 boys in grade two then, so we took a little corner. We had casual clothes on that day, so that was awesome. I slept next to Tait, and we practically talked all night.

Grade three was one of my best years at M.P.P.S. I missed camp that year, as we were off to London, so I had something better than camp. But I did hear that camp was great that year. We did quite a few special things in Zoya’s class that none of the other classes did, like having a fish and chips picnic at the end of the year. The most interesting part was that I never got full marks on my maths tests until the very last test, when I got 50 out of 50. Now that’s a huge improvement!

The biggest thing I have learnt again and again, I am probably speaking for a lot of us here, is that we only get one trip around this rock. We might as well enjoy it. If you find a balance between work, school or otherwise and have fun. “All Work and no Play makes jack a dull boy.” It’s not just the quote from a movie, it’s the truth. A well rounded person is someone who knows a little bit about every topic his or her friends discuss. And an interesting person can take that information and make a conversation about it. Even if his or her knowledge is lacking.

Grade four was very interesting, as I was in ant’s class. I loved the way he taught us things beyond our learning standards. It really helped on the following year in lee’s class. The most interesting part about grade four was camp. We had three days to explore sovereign hill. We focused on learning more about Australian History. In class, we also got to pour water on our heads on very hot days when everyone had a water bottle. That was pretty awesome. But that’s not it, I also got my pen licence that year.

In grade five, I obviously loved being in lee’s class as I really like being around software (that’s why I want to be a software engineer). That year was also one of my best years at M.P.P.S. with a load of friends in my class. It was also one of my huge learning years, as I improved A LOT on my handwriting, making speeches including impromptu speeches and much more. By the end of that year, I was a completely different person than I was at the start.

Others may get the right to work, or even take a year or more off to decide what they want to do. Leaving primary school is such a brutal decision, that I don’t know what the world has in store for us. Just thinking about all those exams and decisions between high schools give me the headaches! But I do know how do deal with those life events, though: By using the skills and information I have picked up here. It all comes down to help, and I have got plenty of people to thank for that. Parents, of course, teachers, friends. I guess the biggest thing I have learnt in primary school is to help others when needed.

Finally, in grade six, my last year in primary school, I am in Jude’s class. I learnt quite a few new statements and words. I think the biggest event of this year was Camp, which I sadly missed due to the confusion of a trip to Bangladesh. Jude tells us heaps of stories in class time…so I guess I’m lucky to be in Jude’s class!

To everyone who changed our lives, we all say thank you. To Parents who stood by us no matter what. To teachers who tried to give us a passion for learning. To administrators who tried to make our primary school experiences as amazing as possible. To friends who were always by our side and all the people we depend on. Without each other, there would be no purpose of being here, no way to advance. Life, like society, is exactly how we make of it. So I thank everyone for being with us in every step.

Sincerely, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you all.



Bangladesh Cricket


Hello and welcome everyone to my latest post in which is all about Bangladesh CRICKET! My absolute favorite sport. I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to comment and follow/subscribe! So, what are we waiting for? Let’s release the awesome skills!

Cricket is a world famous sport. It is sponsored by many companies, like T20, or ICC. The ICC stands for the ” International Cricket Council”, and these fellows are the organizers of the ICC cricket world cup. It occurs  every four years, with fourteen different nations participating. The nations that participate include:  Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, UAE, Afghanistan, England, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Sri-Lanka, South Africa, west Indies, Ireland and finally, Zimbabwe!

 The last ICC cricket world cup was just this year, starting at mid February, and ending at late-March. The finals, Australia and New Zealand, the two hosts of this years world cup, versed each other at  the MCG(Melbourne cricket ground), here at Melbourne. I am not that familiar with T20.

As you might have already guessed, my favorite cricket nationality is Bangladesh, closely followed by Australia. Bangladesh because me and my whole family is originated from there, and Australia because I have and still is being raised here. So, in small words, I was born in Bangladesh but raised in Australia.

My favorite Bangladeshi cricketer is the world’s first T 20 2 All-rounder, Shakib Al Hassan! He is known as the longest lasting cricketer ever in Bangladesh cricket history. He has been playing for about 10 years! Therefore, he is the ex-captain of the Bangladesh Cricket Team. Shakib Al Hassan gained the captaincy role a while ago, and just as the ICC cricket world cup started this year, Mushfiqure Ra-him took over.

17 years ago, The Bangladesh Cricket team where no-where near as good as they are today. The Bangladesh national cricket team (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দল) is the team that represents Bangladesh in international cricket. The team is administered by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). Bangladesh is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test and One Day International (ODI) status. It played its first Test match in 2000 against India in Dhaka, becoming the tenth Test-playing nation.

Bangladesh’s first official foray into international cricket came in the 1979 ICC Trophy in England. On 31 March 1986, Bangladesh played its first ODI match, against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. For a long time, football was the most popular sport in Bangladesh, but cricket gradually became very popular – particularly in urban areas – and by the late 1990s had surpassed football.

Bangladesh made its full debut in international cricket in the 1986 Asia Cup.
In 1997, Bangladesh won the ICC Trophy in Malaysia. By doing so, it qualified for its first Cricket World Cup, in England in 1999. There, it defeated Pakistan – creating one of the biggest upsets in its cricketing history – and also Scotland. On 26 June 2000, Bangladesh was granted full ICC membership, playing its first Test match in November of that year.

Bangladesh holds the record for most consecutive losses in Tests (21, between 2000 and 2002) and ODIs (23, between 2001 and 2004). After gaining full member status with the ICC, Bangladesh had to wait until 2004 for its first ODI win since the 1999 World Cup. The team on the losing side on that occasion was Zimbabwe, who also participated in Bangladesh’s maiden Test victory in 2005; by securing a draw in the second match, Bangladesh won their first Test series. In 2009 Bangladesh toured the West Indies for two Tests and by winning both secured their first overseas series victory.

As of 2 December 2014, Bangladesh has played 88 Tests, winning only seven. Its first victory was against a young and inexperienced Zimbabwe team, which was hit by a player crisis; the next two were against a West Indian team crippled by a players’ strike. Results have improved recently though with draws earned against full strength Sri Lankan and New Zealand sides and a win against Zimbabwe The lack of a first-class tournament in the country before it was granted Test status has been cited as one of the reasons for the side’s struggle to adapt to the longest form of the game, and Bangladesh’s performance has led to repeated calls for it to lose its Test status.

The 17 year old Cricketer, Taskin Ahmed, is a very big inspirational fast bowler for the Bangladesh Cricket team. He is just SO GOOD at bowling. He even matches my initials, TA! I am Takee Al*f, he is Taskin Ahmed. Taskin is only 4 years older than me, you know. I’m 13, he is 17. I just admire the similarities.

If you wish to know the names of ALL the Bangladeshi cricketers, then your in the right place!

Flight to Bangladesh: day 1


Hello and welcome everyone to my latest post to my flight to Bangladesh! I hope you enjoy reding and don’t forgot to comment and follow/subscribe! So what are we waiting for? Let the fun begin!

Flying to Bangladesh all the west from Australia was a great experience. I have learnt so many new things that could be handy on life. I will get to the main points later on.

First of all, the day started of just like any other day, with the wonderful view from my bedroom window. I slept in ether longer than usual. I woke up at 10:30 AM au time. It was the first day of school, which means the end of the holidays. Somehow, that exact day was  the day we were going to Bangladesh(although we were leaving at night at 10:30PM AU time). So,all my friends got a two week holiday,whereas I get a months holiday, as I am staying in Bangladesh for two weeks and the holidays go on for two weeks. my friends say that this is unfair, but you know, you just have to DEAL WITH IT! I’m really sad that I’m going to miss A LOT of schoolwork especially the SEPEP program. You might have already heard the rules and tactics and roles from my previous posts. I might also miss new jects and stud which I’de hate to miss. So there’s ups and downs in everything.

It was a LONG day, that Tuesday. we went to the bank, did some shopping, and did SO MUCH more that cause boredom. While shopping, my mum bought heaps of chocolates to give to people in Bangladesh which made me water my mouth. (Although I was fasting). After that LONG day, as I said before, I settled down to watch some last TV shows in Australia. It was just before 7 PM when I started watching an awesome show called “Doctor Who.” Unfortunately, it was an episode I had already seen, but you know how it works, I had to deal with it!

It was quarter to 10 when we left for the airport. A kind uncle had offered to drop us off, ans as we took the free-way, it took us only 10 minutes. We entered through terminal two, which is for International travels. As for all of you who do air travel should know that terminal one is for domestic Air Travel, which means national. Before we knew it, we were waiting in a not-So-long line for packaging our luggage.

Upcoming tour to Bangladesh


Hello and Welcome everyone to a brand new post on my upcoming tour to Bangladesh! I’m guessing most of you have read a bit about this post from my previous post. I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to comment and Follow! So what ware we waiting for? Let the fun begin!

As most of you have heard, I am going to Bangladesh on the 14th of July, right on the day our school starts. I’m going to be there or two weeks, So I get a months holiday, while all my friends and classmates only get a two week holiday. Although this might seem fun and all, I’m going to miss a lot. I’m going to miss the first two weeks of the SEPEP Program, so I’m not going to learn what team I’m on until I come back on August 1st, followed by missing two wholes games out of a 10 game total.

As some of you might not know, SEPEP is a futsal unit our school runs in which we play a whole season of this sport(Until the end of term). There are teams of 7 or 8, and everyone HAS to have a job. Jobs available include Captain, Coach and Manager(especially for the grade 5’s) and Umpire, First Aid, and Referee(especially for the grade 6’s). There are two duty groups each week, running the other eight ongoing games(Umpiring, First Aid and Referee’s). Points are added to each to every week and the top two teams are on the grand final on the final week. My team made it to the Finals, but sadly lost and and came second. So it’s really a pity that I’m going to miss the first two weeks.

Other than sport, I’m also going to miss a lot of schoolwork. Who knows, may be I’ll miss a project or something. But I can’t help that, can I? Plus, you actually learn when you travel. So that’s a bonus,  as I am at least going to learn something! I’ll also get the opportunity to play heaps of sport in Bangladesh, although it’s really hot there.

As I am going to be back on August the first, I will only have to wait one week in Australia before it’s my birthday, on August the eighth. As most of you know from my previous post, it’s my 13th birthday in just over a month(34 days). So that’s something to look forward to! To be honest, I think that this is going to be a fantastic month, as I mentioned in my previous post. But the thing is, as I get older, I’m starting to loose interest in my birthday. Because as I age, I will not always have those sorts of HUGE parties with 3 or 4 cakes(Just like my 9th birthday), but instead just a simple get-together, with maybe a small cake with some friends and relatives.

The main purpose of my journey to Bangladesh is to Celebrate Eid. Eid is a special celebration in which Muslims celebrate the end of the holy Arabic month of Ramadan, in which we fast from sunrise to sunset. You will learn more about Eid on the Eid page. Here in Australia we have to get up at 5:30 AM and break our fast at 5 PM. That’s 11 and a half hours. But once I get to Bangladesh, I will still have to fast for two days before it’s Eid. In Bangladesh, we have to wake up at 3 AM and break our fast at 6 PM, that’s 15 hours, just 3 and a half hours more fasting than Australia.

So, that’s all I have to say about my upcoming trip to Bangladesh. Once I get there, I will certainly write about my time in days. e.g. Day 1….Day 2…Day 3…. etc. I hope you enjoyed reading and don’t forget to comment and Follow/Subscribe!

New Month, New Facination


Hello and Welcome everyone to my awesome post on the new current month, July. I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to comment and subscribe! So what are we waiting for? Let the fun begin!

As all of you know, today is the fourth of July! exactly one month before the fourth of June, when everyone says “May the force be with you.” The fourth o July is also famous, as it is mentioned in most songs. My favorite song in which the fourth of July is mentioned is “Firework” by Katy Perry. Unfortunately, today is a Saturday, so no shops nor anything are open. Anyways, it’s still the holidays!

But, even MORE interesting than that, my 13th birthday is coming on exactly one month and three days on august 8th! That’s exactly 34 days(because July has 31 days). I am really excited, as I am going to transform from a pre-teen(Or a tween) to a teenager. Now that’s a huge curve in our life. I can’t believe that I am actually going to be a high school kid in less than six months! WOW!

In just over a week, on the fourteenth on July, on the same day our school starts, I will be on a trip to BANGLADESH for two weeks. I’m leaving at 6 PM, so I might as well go to school. I’m going to be back on the 1st of august, just a week before my birthday, on my friends birthday. I am so excited. I get a months holiday while all my friends and classmates only get a holiday for two weeks. But that also means that I’m going to miss out on a lot. Read my following post to learn more about my trip to Bangladesh, and when I’m actually in Bangladesh, I will write about my Adventures in the form of Day 1, Day 2 , Day 3 etc. Just like I did on my trip to Sydney.

There will also be a new high-tech shopping center opening this month, and we might actually rent a shop! That’s going to make a big difference!

So that proves that for the whole month of July, I will be Fascinated with heaps of wonders that will always fill my mind. I hope you enjoyed reading. I only have one thing to say THANKS FOR READING! Don’t forget to comment and subscribe!

Summary of Being in 5/6B in 2014


Hello everyone, I would just like to write a short summary of being in 5/6B in 2014. I hope you enjoy reading and feel free to leave a comment!

This year was one of the best years I have ever experienced in primary school because I have never had a teacher like this years before. We’ve had so much fun in class while learning at the same time! We made funny jokes and riddles once in a while which was the best part. So leaving this class next year will be sad, but everything has to move on.

We’ve gone through many events this year including Gala Sports, Winter Sports, Cross Country, Sepep, Athletics and many more that I can’t name. Most of which have been successfully run last year. But next year will be different because me and 15 others will have to run events like these. So I’m looking forward to that, even though I’m a bit nervous. But being nervous won’t help. We’re the grade 6 school leaders next year and we have to successfully accomplish our jobs without fear. NO JOKE.

Sadly, there are a few teachers leaving next year along with this years grade 6′s. :( So I’m wishing them best of luck for their year ahead. I’m still sad that I didn’t make great friends with this years grade 6s because I might never see them again… :( But I have a Whole year ahead of me to make new friends.  The last few days of this school year was very tiring due to teachers shifting classrooms which were filled with junk. So thats when we came to the rescue!

We have been using a personal device throughout the whole year called a ‘NETBOOK’. This is like a mini-computer that most students use in Melbourne(Australia) and is very popular. But not any more because we’re introducing ourselves to an ‘IPAD COMPUTER’. Us grade 6s won’t get them but next years grade 5′s will. So we have to be stuck with our old NETBOOKS while they get the good stuff. :(

I’ve enjoyed MVIMP this year, an instrumental music program we do with three other schools in which I played the Violin and I wish to continue next year. So that’s just one thing I’m looking forward to! 🙂

So that’s pretty much all I have to say about this year but I will be back with more. (There were a lot of sad faces today) I Hope you enjoyed reading and again, feel free to leave a comment!

Thanks, By Takee, Bye!
