Radio Show by Isabella

During term 2 and the beginning of term 3 my friends and I were working on  our… ‘radio show script’. Mr Kelly gave us some tips on what we needed to have like we need to have at least 4000 words. to be honest I thought that we would never get 4000 words on our script because it seemed like so much but actually it was very achievable. We could’ve done about 5000 words but we did about 4138.

We really enjoyed going down to the radio show room and recording our script. One day when we went down we recorded the whole script, thank goodness. Afterwards we went to Mandarin and during Mandarin Mr Kelly called us in because he said he couldn’t hear us. When we got back we realised that one of the microphones was not working. So as soon as we came to school we had to mark ourselves on the roll and go straight to the recording room. Finally, finally, finally… we recorded it. Yay!

Our Wakakirri Experience!!!!!!!!!!! (By Sidhya)

On the 4th of August the students who participated in Wakakirri, story of dance, went to the Frankston Art Centre to perform the story they have been working on over a term (about 10 weeks). This year’s performance was called “Together Divided”. It is about a mother who has twins, but sadly she doesn’t survive the birth of her twins so the father has to look after them but he gets sent to war. The twins were sent to an orphanage and two mothers adopted them (one rich and one poor). Sadly the twins dad dies in the war.

Ten years later the rich and the poor had a street fight and finally the twins meet and everyone made peace. There were a lot of schools participating. We first had 2 dress rehearsals.

It was a magnificent experience to  perform on that stage with our friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would want to go back on that stage and perform it over and over  again:)


Wakakirri By Jordy

On Tuesday the 4th of August, some of the grade 4, 5 and 6 students arrived at the Frankston Art Centre to perform their Wakakirri routine.

Once we found our dressing room, everyone put their bags somewhere and then we were off to do our dress rehearsal. Basically, what we do at a dress rehearsal is, well, you would run through your routine twice. The first time you dance it, you would do it without the lights and the smoke and on the second time you dance it (last time) you would do it full out with the lighting and the smoke.

Wakakirri is where lots of different schools come to a competition and compete against each other and they have to tell a story through dance. The signature item this year was a chicken and not many schools used it but we did.
Our story all starts when twins were born but sadly the mother doesn’t make it, so the father takes custody of the twins, but then the father gets sentenced to war, so the children got sent to an orphanage and get taken away by two different mothers (one rich, one poor) with each child not knowing that they have a twin sister.
Ten years later the rich and the poor have a street fight and the twins have no idea that they are fighting against each other. Luckily, the twins realise that the are twins and finally the war ends and everyone thought that “it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, we are all the same.” Our story was called “Together Divided”.
When it was time to perform, everybody was really, really excited to go on stage. We were so excited that we wouldn’t be quiet.
It was an magnificent experience to perform with all of my friends. I had a wonderful day and I hope everyone else who participated in Wakakirri did too.
We would like to thank Mrs Montgomery for being an awesome choreographer and for being there on the day and to Miss Quelch for also being a great choreographer as well, and last but not least Mr Kelly for encouraging us and being there on the day.
I hope everyone had a magnificent day!!!

Planet Ark Day (Green, Lean and Keep Clean Day) By Stephanie

On Friday the 24th of July it was Planet Ark Day and all the students of Berwick lodge had to wear the colour green to represent all the green leaves and grass.

We all had lunch with our buddies but before we ate lunch we planted our own snow peas to take home or to leave at school. We got split into two groups and half  the grades went to our classroom and the other half stayed at our buddy grade’s classroom. It was a very fun day, especially when we went to footy clinic as well.image(10).

Footy Clinic by Stevan K

Footy Clinic was for four weeks at the start of term 3 but I missed one week because I was sick but I still had fun. Ok let’s talk about the good stuff. The first week we did some different marking like over head mark, chest mark, outside mark, and the specky.

We played a game and I did some good marking and I did a specky and it was good. After we played that we played 2 more games and it was octopus and golden child and it was so so fun and I had a great time doing footy clinic.




Footy clinic by Riley

In term 3 the grades Prep, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 had footy clinic that went for four weeks. It was run by SEDA Sports Academy. We went with the same people twice and then other people  taught us skills and games. image(38)

Footy clinic by Puneet

image(20)We had footy clinic for 4K. We had split into 4 groups. For footy clinic we didn’t play the real game, we learnt skills and played games.

First we played footy island. The rules for the game are you should catch the ball when the person on the opposite side throws the football. Then you punch on the beanbag.

The next game we played was a different footy island. The rule for that game is when the teacher says to catch the ball you have to drop the ball, when the teacher says drop you have to catch the ball.

Radio Show by Nadia

A few months ago, a few of my friends and I were chosen to be a part of the 97.7fm Casey Radio Show. When I was first told about it I was very excited I was going to be on the Radio! But it was not that easy!

First my friend Jordy had to set up the google docs account. Each of my friends had too help write a script.

There were five segements, each segement was different. For example , the first segement was about getting to know each other, then inquiry for the next, thirdly interviews, then litracy and finally the conclusion of the show. Between the segements there was songs.

When we finished our scripts my friends and I were sent to the film studio (which is Mr Kelly’s room). We read our scripts on  the microphones. Everything was fine until the microphones broke!

It took a few days to fix up the microphones. We read our scripts once again and finally the show was finished!

On the 12th of August the radio show was on broadcast on the Casey Radio. All our work came to an end. I can not wait until it is our next radio show!
