Secondary Experience – Day Three


Today was really fun,.  My favourite part was Technology with Ms Sackey. We programmed spheros to make a shape or picture on a big piece of paper. We also did Art, and Peer Support. I have never gotten to do anything like what we did in Technology which shows that you get much more opportunities in high school.

In Art with Mr Watts, we painted a spooky, abandoned, city, with blue, white, black, and green paint.

In Peer Support we did a Question and Answer. I asked the questions “what was the hardest thing you thought would be going into secondary school and was it? How do you keep your assignments and homework organized? What is the best thing about high school?


Secondary School Experience – Day Two

I enjoyed my second secondary experience day. PDHPE was really fun, we talked about all the changes that are going to happen in the next few years and how we can cope with them. In the sport section everyone had a lot of fun and was very excited about the fact that we will get to do that in high school. I think PDHPE is a good time to share any troubles I have about school and studies. I think this will help me cope with all the studying and troubles of high school.

We also did peer support, in peer support we played a ball game in the same groups as day one. We were practicing the skills of concentration, teamwork, and communication.

Secondary School Experience – Day One

Day one of the Secondary School Experience was great! I really enjoyed the classes, my favourite part was Science with Mr Hazelton. We put turmeric and methylated spirits on toilet paper and saw what colour it turned in an acidic mix, and a based mix. We also did Peer Support, Maths, and Pastoral Care.

In pastoral care we where put  in to groups and we sat in a circle, we chose one person to get to shape or object from Bronte and they had to make it with play dough, their teammates had to guess what they where making, and the first group finished got to go out to out to recess first.

In  Maths we made a paper tunnel in our groups to carry a marble from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’. We made the marble travel slower and faster, using only 2 pieces of cardboard, sticky tape, scissors, 2 cups and the marble.

In pastoral care we filled out worksheets asking us if we feel safe in the social media community, which social media sites we use and why.

The classes are much different in secondary school than in primary school in regards to classwork, you get more of an opinion during discussions, and  you have different classes in different classrooms, rather than in the one classroom.
