Alicia- Omaru Creek

                                      Omaru Creek


There was a large amount of fat,sewage and clogged up rubbish found in the Omaru  
Creek. This meant that an urgent call had to be made to one of the local maintenance groups in our area. The local Creek was and is still in poor condition.


The maintenance team cleaned the surroundings of the Creek and then cleaned inside. They ended up pulling a huge piece of mattress springs from the dirty water and cleaning the rubbish that clogged  the pipes. They then flushed the creek with fresh water and tested the water-quality  for five days. It is all of our responsibility to make sure our creek stays healthy.
Our community could help by following some of these steps: if you are deep frying chips, wait for the fat to cool down and harden and then put it in your rubbish bin. That way it reduces the chance of affecting the homes in your area and it also reduces the chance of you having to pay hundreds of dollars for  the damage.You can also rather put rubbish in the bin than in the toilet or outside. This way our creek will not have to always be cleaned.


My class and I as part of the community of Glen Innes will help clean the dirty rubbish that surrounds the creek, remove the aqua and dry weeds and get rid of papers and anything that harms the pipes in our community. Hopefully in 6 weeks time I will look
back at these pictures and be proud of what the community of Glen Innes has achieved.


Our Creek right now:

Ketura- Maths Enlargement

Today we had to enlarge a picture that we had chosen, to draw on the asphalt outside. First, I had to draw my grid on a paper, to see what it would like on the ground. The next day, we all had to go outside to measure and draw our grid. My grid was a 7 by 9 grid. The picture that I had to enlarge outside on the asphalt was an elephant.

To draw my picture using my grid, I had to count the squares while drawing my elephant accurately. I worked out my scale factor which was: 1cm represented 30cm. Enlarging a picture on the asphalt was difficult because some of the things that I drew were in the wrong place.
