This was my first trip overseas by myself!
This was my first time going overseas by myself without my parents! This trip lasted for 7 days, and brought us to the historic Chinese city of Xian. During the trip we stayed in the Ramadan bell tower hotel, and went to various historic and interesting destinations around Xian. During the trip I had to organize, look after, and take care of myself as I did not have my parents to look after me. It was a real challenge!
On the first 2 days we went to a local school, where we saw what students did, and we tried out some pottery and calligraphy, and read Chinese poems. we also watched a traditional Chinese play, and went to sightsee at the ancient city wall. But the main highlight of the trip was seeing the famous terracotta warriors! This was the historic site that housed over 800 terracotta warriors as a means to protect the emperor in the afterlife. After that we saw the wild goose pagoda, another historic site before returning to the hotel after a long day out.
This was one of the best trips I have ever had and it is definitely one I won't forget!
This was my first big international swim competition!
It was very exciting for me to see some of the international schools in south east asia come together for such an event! It was a pretty big competition with lots of great swimmers and was very fun to take part in.
I took part in 7 different events which were 50m freestyle, breastroke, backstroke and butterfly as well as 100m freestyle, breastroke and backstroke. The competition was held over a course of 3 days, with the amount of swimmers and events being this high the event just simply couldn't be held over just one day.
The event was very exciting for me because it not being just my first international swim meet it also had a amazing amount of swimmers and schools taking part in this event, which made it a really interesting, fun and enjoyable place to be in.
This was deffinitley one of the best and most exciting swim meets and it is one that I'm sure I won't soon forget!
Today was my early birthday party!
As you know, my real birthday is on the 28th of December, but this year I decided to have an earlier birthday party to celebrate the progress we are making on my misson to send 215 children in Laos to school. There were 22 of us at the party, with all the boys in my class and also from my previous grades, coming over to help make this an amazing birthday party and experience.
I also had an amazing cake made my mum's friend, Aunty May which incorporated a few of my favourite hobbies like golf, swimming and science experiements!
For my birthday party I chose LaserOps, an indoor laser tag experience,to have all my fun and games in.
We had tons of fun, and once again thank you ever so much to everyone who has donated, as you have made this one of the best birthdays ever!
