What an exciting time indeed! We awoke just the other morning to find a long list of emails from the other side of the world. Although a little confused at first, it soon dawned on us that we had fellow bloggers from California wanting to know all about us! This is very exciting and we are currently working hard on putting together an information video explaining all about us, where we live and what it is like living in our wonderful country. Hopefully some of our emails will reach them shortly. Then we will be able to start communicating more frequently and learning all about what it is like going to school on the other side of the world. Here are some things you may not know about us already:
- Our year is almost over. We are about to start term 4 and will finish just in time for Christmas.
- We don’t have middle schools in Australia. We have Primary School ( Kindergarten to year 6) and High School (Year 7 to Year 12).
- We are just about to enter summer. Winter has just about finished and we are currently warming up. We can expect to get up to around 40 Degrees Celsius on some of the hotter days. Without air conditioning we would be in BIG TROUBLE!!! P.S – many schools don’t have air conditioning in every class.
To find out more about our wonderful school, please visit our school online newspaper site – merrylandseast.com. Here you will learn all about our students and the fabulous programs we run at our school.
Please keep the emails coming and we look forward to getting to know you!
