The Blue Square

On the tenth day, on the tenth month, on the tenth year, there was a demon from the depths of the Halloween Underworld. It was known as the Blue Square. The Blue Square had teeth and nails of copper, eyes made out of acid, skin as hard as the Great Wall of China and was blue as the planet Neptune.

It was given the task from the King of Halloween to create a plague to spread onto the planet known as Earth by Halloween night. It created a ball of lightning which can use the smoke in volcanoes to spread the plagues. To make sure the plague works it needs to thrown into the highest volcano in the world. So it went to the Chile / Argentina border line to find the Ojos del Salado. The people screamed in terror as the Blue Square petrified everyone that came in its way. Some were burned by its blue fire and others were crushed by its weight.

Fortunately, a group of monster hunters were near the volcano with bullets made out of lead that could penetrate the Blue Square’s skin. The demon approached the hunters and it tried it’s best but the bullets were too strong. But then one of the hunters backstabbed his friends. He was actually the King of Halloween. He grabbed the ball of lighting and threw it into the volcano.

The volcano exploded in clouds of smoke and the king died. To this day those clouds of smoke still roam to this day, spreading diseases too all of mankind.

Bush tucker garden safe

We have been planting a bush tucker garden at the front of our school. We have planted native plants that Aboriginal people eat and we can eat.  Last weekend a fire caused by a fallen power line a came very close to our garden.  Lucky, all our plants didn’t get destroyed and our bush tucker garden is safe.

*The red circle on the photo shows where our Bush Tucker Garden is. We’re SO lucky the fire didn’t jump the creek, but there was lots of smoke

This footage from a drone shows how close the fire came to our school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Two Wolves

One day an old Cherokee Indian was talking to his grandson. He said:

“Inside all of us we have two wolves. One is evil. The other is good. They are always fighting with each other”

His grandson said “which wolf wins the fight?”

“Whichever wolf you feed. If you have negative thoughts and feelings like being jealous, sad, unkind, rude, frustrated, giving up or thinking you’re better than other people, you’re feeding your bad wolf. You feed your good wolf by thinking positive happy thoughts. If you’re a good winner, have a good attitude, and you’re kind, loving, generous, friendly, responsible and polite, you’re feeding your good wolf.”
