On Tuesday the 22nd of May we
went to see a performance on cyber safety. There were two actors, Brett and  Alice. Brett played Dylan your average guy and Michael the cool dude. Alice played Emma, a new girl at a new school and Hannah the popular girl that got  jealous. It had lots of singing but taught us not to believe everything you see online, because Dylan got tricked online by a 45 year old man who pretended to be a 14 year old girl named Sally. Also Hannah tricked Dylan and got his phone and sent bad messages to Emma. For this Emma feels really really bad. Then the
police turned up and Dylan kept on blaming Hannah and Hannah got the blame.  
Our favourite bit about it was that it taught us a lot. We learnt that  not everything online is real and if you get caught up in the wrong things it can be bad. For example, if somebody bullys you online there is always evidence and they can be traced. I thought it was a good idea for Emma to ring 0800Whatsup for help.
Overall it was a good play which taught all of us a lot and it was helpful to us.

PictureKate read a poem about trees
On the 9/05/2013 at one thirty, everyone at Ashburton Borough School took part in the UNESCO tree planting annual event. The goal for New  Zealand schools is to plant 100 million trees by 2017. Our school planted 6 trees which was 1 liquid Amber 4 Hebes and 1 Black Beech tree. But before we started planting Adam and Cameron presented a speech plus Kate from our class presented a poem. Kirsty Clay from The Guardian also joined us on this special day.

At morning tea, me and the rest of the class walked to the Ashburton River and we met a lady named Debbie Eddinton from ECAN. She helped us to find bugs in the water and measure the temperature and the clarity. But there was a suprise, a stick insect came out of nowhere! Then we saw room 15 coming. It was time to go. When we were walking back, me and Charlie made the big trucks hoot. After that we had lunch and went to play.

First of all Mrs O Neill gave us a blank piece of paper with a  t-shirt drawn on it. Then we started drawing on it and different people did different  t shirts.
After that we showed Mrs O Neill and she said they were  FANTASTIC.
Last of all we showed the class our t shirt.
