This topic was about Code Red which is a new warning system for Bushfires around our country.
Many people around Australia are protecting their property because of the bushfires incase they come back again.
This is very important to all people because they can lose homes, family and and other supplies. It is important to leave early because you have less risk of getting yourself killed.
The bushfires which happened in Victoria were the worst bushfires Australia has ever had. There have been many weather reports on the weather to see where the bushfires are coming this summer and making people aware to head out of their area early at the right time.
At Marysville there is nothing. It was burnt in the bushfires and every thing was gone.
Think of all those who have lost their lives in Bushfires and act early.
Koalas are famous animals to all people around Australia. People visiting the zoo love cuddling the koalas’ and enjoy playing with them but they all feel sorry about them because all their home have been wrecked by the governments decisions. Koalas are one of the most recognisable animals we have in our Australian population. Many people from companies have made heaps of things to enjoy other people and children like toys, equipment and chocolate for example Cadbury Koalas.
The amount of Koala’s around Australia has dropped massively. Some of the major things about the koala’s is their homes some of their homes have been demolished by clearing. Up to 80 per cent of koalas’ home areas have been cleared for building houses and for roads works. This is extremely important for all koalas because without gumtrees and leaves they will not survive and that is one of the reasons why the population of koalas has gone down.
National threatened species scientific committee to check what number the animals wether there endangered or extinct.
They are making decisions about the koalas at the moment and the decisions will be revealed soon.
This story is about animals who help soldiers in war. The animals I am talking about are dogs. They can sense enemies who are about to attack. These dogs are very helpful to the soldiers to find their way and also to protect them.
Unfortunately, dogs are the same as humans thay die at war as well. But to protect them they have knitted masks with something hard to protect them from poison or anything that affects them. A horse in the war was extremely helpful with carrying luggage and first aid kits so after the horse had diedthey put the skin of his head in the War Memorial.
Did you know the Dickens Medal was awarded to pigeons? They were rewarded because they send messages to the soldiers and that helps there spirit or what the soldiers have to do.
I think that it is great help for the soldiers to have animals in the warbecause they can protect them and they can also save your life.
The reason why I don’t think that animals should be in war because they risk their lives for the soldiers and it’s very sad to see them die.

People around Australia are have too many cigarettes. What shall we do? Here are some ways not to have cigarettes.
Smoking cigarettes has a huge effect to the human body. Mainly, the lungs because the smoke can go your throat and effect your lungs, struggerling for you to breathe. You can also get cancer around the body such as the lungs, mouth and so on.
Overseas countries such as Indonesia might not have the equipment and medication to help you, and you could be lucky to be alive. But it has taken away many lives. Smoking can effect many children more likely for them to die because their lungs are developing and are getting stronger and if something happens to them it will be tough for them if they continually smoke over and over.
Most people don’t enjoy the smell of other people smoking and if the smoke get into your lungs and might make them worse.
It’s not a good idea to buy cigarettes because they are quite expensive at $10 or more a packet and there unhealthy.
If I were you I wouldn’t smoke because in a few years time you will be in a mess!
This BTN story is about water being used in bottles and should they be banned. It wastes water and plastic. What I think is water should be in the glass bottles filled up with water from the taps.
Bundaloons banned the sale of bottled water because we are wasting too much plastic each day. Human body is made up of 60% of water and human beings need to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water each day. Water helps with many things keeping you hydrated throughout the day, takes away other pains, and keeps you alive.The bottle industry is ‘booming’ because people each day buy about 1000L bottles of water of tap water costs $1.20, although water that has al ready been used can be $3000.
Other people say it should be banned because it is using up a lot of resources when we drink bottled water. Its easy to use big glass jugs because you can use it again.
Bottled water is needed when its really hot and you really need a drink.
I think its fair to ban bottled water because the machines are using a lot of energy and resources. I think we should use glasses.
This story is about a boy who suffered a bleed into his skull which put preasure on his brain after falling of his bike on a slippery road. The main reason why his brain was so badly damaged was because he wasn’t wearing a helmet in bad conditions.
The boy lives in Marybourough and went straight to the town hospital. The doctors tried to work out the problem with his brain. They didn’t have a proper drill so they had to use a hardware drill. Nicholas was taken to be cared for at a hospital thet had the facilities to deal with this kind of problem, and will recover soon.
Nicholas learnt that he should have worn a bike helmet and taken more care of one of his important parts of his body. He also learnt what damage accidents can cause to your body.
Here are some tips why you should wear a helmet:
A helmet reduces the risk of head injurys 60%.
It’s against the law if you don’t wear a helmet you can also be fined.
Make sure the helmet your wearing fits properly.
Look after your helmet. Keep it out of sunlight because then you might not see where your going when your on a road.
Treat your bicycle as you would , and obey the road rules.
Never ride on the wrong side of the road or go through red lights.

This story it about a boy called Jeremy. He likes a girl called Jill. Jeremy finds Jill on the school netball courts and the story why he likes her. So, Jeremy thought of buying Jill a present with his pocket money a wriggling guppy. He wanted to get a bike for himself but he really liked Jill. The fish cost him two hundred and ten dollars. Jeremy gives the fish to her and feels upset because he thought she didn’t like it so he went to the toliets. He saw Jill and Jill had broken the the bowl for the fish but she was crying because she accidently caught the fish in her mouth. Then Jeremy and Jill swapped the fish into their mouths. When they got to the taps Jill had swallowed the fish.
Here is the book.
This story is about a famous rugby player called Brett Stewart. He has been arrested for going to a night club and getting drunk. He is not playing rugby for at least 4 weeks.
The boss was extremely angry because most of his team were getting drunk. I think it is a fair decision because the whole of the team was getting drunk and doing the wrong thing.
The main concern is that it can effect young people because they see it and they think it’s good so they go do it when there older and there can cause a lot of damage because they could hurt someone once there drunk. Brett Stewart was setting a bad example for viewers.
I also think sports stars should be sent off the field who have behaved badly because it gives them time to think what they’ve done.
The issue is should homework be banned. Some think it should be banned and some don’t. So do you think it should be banned?
Reasons why I think it should be banned because people think it’s boring and they’ve done work for the whole day. Other reasons why it should be banned is because people think they don’t need it and it’s a waste of time and plus there are better things to do. Some say thet it should be banned because they don’t need after school work because they spend the whole day doing it and most people say it is so boring!
On the otherhand people say they should do it because when they’re older they know how to sort out money and be a lot smarter. People say they should do it because when people go to University they know escactly what to do and how to do it. In the same way people enjoy doing homework because you learn a lot more than not doing homework and when your older you can teach other people how to do it.
Now to my conclusion
Each ways some people like to do homework and some don’t. However I would of chosen both because there are a few good things about homework and maybe when you’re done have a little free time!
