FRIENDSHIP DAY

On Wednesday 15th of June, Year 6 went on a trip to the Kinma School for ‘Friendship Day’.

Our secretary, Mrs Boyadjian, took us to the Kinma School. There were a lot of students from different schools there. Some of the teachers and students introduced themselves and showed us around the school. They also told us where to sign in and put our bags.

After signing in they told us that we had to write our name on a piece of paper then fold it up and put it in a bowl. Then we put our bags in the hall and started to play.

A while later they called us into the hall. In the hall there were speeches and we were told why we were at their school and how ‘Friendship Day’ started.

After their speeches they told us to get into a circle. This is when they got the bowl out with all our names folded in it. Everybody had to pick out a name, but if it was someone from your school or someone you knew then you had to put it back and pick out a different one.

After everybody picked out a name and a name tag, each person had to decorate the name tag for the person they chose from the hat. After everybody had decorated the name tag for somebody else, we had to go and find that person, meeting new friends along the way.

Then it was question time. This was when some students from the Kinma School asked each of the schools some questions.

After all of the questions were asked it was time for morning tea. For morning tea we had veggies with dip, fruit and sweets. It was very yummy!!! We then played for about 10 minutes.

When morning tea ended, it was time for a bushwalk. On the bushwalk we went past the stream. On the bushwalk there was clay on the ground and we got to hold it and mould it.  There was an Aboriginal rock which was shaped like a boat, and this rock was used as a Birthing place by the Aboriginal people. At the end of the bushwalk they gave us a small box to put our clay in.

After we washed our hands and put our boxes full of clay near our bags, then it was time for lunch. For lunch we had spaghetti Bolognese. It was really yummy too!!! When we finished our food we were able to play. We played for a long time.

During lunch some of the students helped a teacher get the wool and clipboards, so anyone who wanted to, could make friendship bracelets. There were a couple of students who taught us how to make two different types of friendship bracelets. We made the friendship bracelets for about half an hour.

When it was time to go, everyone got their bags and clay creations. We waited at the basketball court to be picked up.

When we got to school we told our class what we did there and we also taught them how to make two different types of friendship bracelets.

So that is the end of our trip to the Kinma school.
