Valedictorian Speech 2015

December17

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.

Takee

 

Last Day Of 2014

December31

Hello everyone, this is the LAST POST of the year and I wish you all  a Happy New Year! Be sure to read my post about the fireworks Visit next year (Tomorrow)!

This year, 2014 has been the best year I have experienced so far due to friends and family. Without them, this year wouldn’t have been as good. I’ve enjoyed all the fun things about this year all the way from school activities near the start of the year to the Christmas Holidays(Even though the Christmas Holidays aren’t over yet). But  that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the boring things:) And after all that, here we are today, on the last day of 2014. I will miss the year but at the same, I’m looking forward to next year.

As you might already know, I am going to Docklands tonight at around midnight to see the fireworks. It was really fun last year and it’s a great way to experience the first minute of the year. The best part about it is that you get walk on the roads! I’ll write a post about it tomorrow where you’ll  get some more detail. So see you there if your going!

I’ve enjoyed all the ups and downs this year, especially in Tournaments Of Minds in which we had a lot of arguments. But at least we were able to perform on stage with the right materials. I hope next year is a bit better. But the most interesting things about this year is the excursions, Incursions and Camps we did at school such as  GTAC, the school Concert, Canberra Camp, Met Challenge and many more that will take ages to name. We had so much fun with all these(even though I didn’t go to Canberra Camp). Next year I’m looking forward to being Captain with most of these events!

Another great experience was this years school Homework! As you might already know, we had the 100 WC, BTN, Spelling City, Maths Mate and putting them in Audacity. But that’s all school stuff, lets get back to the whole year! I’ve been to heaps of places, festivals, exhibitions, movies and much more, making this year the funnest and most explored.

We were very busy near the end of the year because of Christmas and New Years Eve, Of course and Moving houses. We moved into a pretty big 2 bedroom house with pretty large back and front yards. It was a big hit for me because we lived in our previous house for 7 years and that’s where I grew up! So I was a bit sad to move but I got over it in a month or two.

So that’s pretty much all I have to say about this year! Feel Free to leave a comment!

Thanks, By Takee, Bye!

The End Of Year Music Concert

November14

Hello everyone, I am Takee and I am going to talk to you about the End of year Music concert that occurred in my school.

That evening, I was a bit early, afraid that I might be late. I had a bag with me that had some food, my i-pad, my music book and a pair of extra shoes just in case. These were all the things I was asked to take. I was dressed in Black and White because we were asked to wear Black and White. I waited for all my friend to arrive by having a seat at the side of the stage were all the Musicians sat. I sat at the place were the musicians at my school were asked to sit. By then, all my friends had arrived and they had a seat next to me. We all played games together and ate our food that we brought until the Concert started. We went upstairs first, to tune our instruments by our teacher. Then we headed back down to the show room and went to our seats. Before we knew it, we were all on stage playing our instruments. When our performance was done, we went to were our parents were sitting and sat next to them. After a while, we had to go back upstairs to were our teachers were as we were instructed. We had to get ready for our next performance and again, before we knew it, we were on stage performing. After our performance, we packed our instruments upstairs and went back down to sit beside our parents and watch the rest of the concert because we didn’t have any more performances. We saw the concert end and I said goodbye to my friends and we all headed back home.

So, that’s the story of the end of year concert 2013. I look forward to next years end of year concert 2014 But I guess this is were this post must end. So see you next time!

Thanks, By Takee, Bye!

Spring Music concert

November14

Hello, I am Takee and I would like to talk to you about a Spring Music Concert That was held at my school a few days ago.

It was a fantastic evening were all the musicians in our school got to play a peace of music. I was one of them and I played “the Violin” . I have been playing the Violin for the last 4 years and I been waiting fir this day because I really wanted to show everyone my talents. The concert was held at my school which was easier for me because otherwise, I would have been late. When I first started playing the Violin, I didn’t want to learn how to play it but when I did, I was into it a lot. I wasn’t the best player but not the worst. We had thousands of people as our audience that evening. It filled the whole room and when they all talked at once, It echoed loudly across the whole room. So that was quiet an audience. I was used to this because this wasn’t my first concert. My first concert was in year #1, when I was 8 years old. I wasn’t quiet long ago, in 2010. That was when I did my first concert and I was really terrified of the crowds noise. But now, I am really used to it. Finally the concert ended and everyone had to go home because it was already 9:30 PM. Time passes by so quickly when your having fun. So that is were this post must end.

Thank you, by Takee, bye!
