If Hannah Hansen became principal of Parkvale School these are the changes that I would make...
Ipads would be compulsory for doing work on because then all the children would all have to do the same thing but we would be allowed to take them home. The teachers would have full access to them. it would be easier and quicker.
I would make Wendy’s Burgers and Wendy’s out the front of the school and all the children would have to eat Wendy’s for lunch so then the teachers would know what the children were eating and if it was allowed at school.
I would make all the children at school have to wear mufti every day and then it would be easier for the teachers because they wouldn't have to worry about if the children were wearing the right school uniform.
These are the changes that I would make to this school if I became the principal.
Two things that are special to my family are a belt and three medals. It is my Dad's grandfather on my Nana’s side of the family. His name is Norman Godkin.
Norman was in World War 1 and was a prisoner of war. He ripped the belt off a train seat and sewed the buttons he had collected. The buttons and badges were from other soldiers. Many are from different countries and many are from soldiers that died. There is also a bullet on his belt which came out of his leg. Here are some photo's of the belt and the badges.

I am standing at the top of the waterfall, waiting for myself to get the confidence to jump. “Come on Hanny, I will jump with you!” said my dad. “1,2,3” SPLASH! As I was swimming back I was thinking, “That seemed to take for ages to reach the water.” I went under and came back up coughing but then I realized it was fresh water. I hopped out and then ran to my towel. It was so cold it felt like I was visiting Antarctica.
In our school we are having a special assembly where each class has made up a Learning Slogan and they have to chant it to the school. In Room 16 we all made a Slogan and then we voted which 2 we should do. This is what I created.
On Wednesday it was Read Aloud Day. To celebrate it Mr.M picked some children to go and read to a junior class. I was chosen and I went and read to Room 2. I really enjoyed reading to them and they were a great audience.

In maths yesterday we had to add up the points for the swimming sports. 1st place was worth 10 points, 2nd was worth 7 points, 3rd was worth 5 points and for
·Something I was pleased with was that I only got 1 answer wrong when we were adding up the points but I fixed it up at the end because we all went through them and were finding out what was the right answer.
·I really enjoyed doing the times tables above 12 because they were quite challenging we had to use a different strategy to work them out.
·Something I found hard was keeping up with the numbers of where each house came and then working them out.
·Something that made me think was my times tables above 12 because I don’t know them that well.
·Something I want to get better at is my times tables above 12.
Something I can do about it is work on them at home and not just do my times tables up to 12, I will do them above 12.
