In 3/4m we have been focusing on the SDG goals for inquiry. Lani and Vy have been doing gender equality,it has been an amazing experience,they have been finding out how sad women in different countries live. They found a lot of  different donations that you can donate to. Please make a change now.

These are all the facts you need to know.

1.43% of the women in 28 European union member state experienced some form of violence.

2.More than 1 in 4 women in Washington have experienced some form of violence.

3.It’s estimated that 35% of women worldwide have experienced physical violence in their lives.

4.In some countries young girls before the age of 5 were cut.

5.In 2015 81 women died because of violence.

6.Same as in 2016 71 women died because of violence.

7.On the average 1 women a week gets murdered by their former or current partner.

 

he 3 types of violence.

Number 1 domestic violence it’s when anyone hurts you and it involves punching, hitting, throwing and kicking.

Number 2 is family violence it’s when your family or partner hurt you and it involves punching, slapping and pinching.

Number 3 is physical violence it’s when someone has a lot of power and force against you and they threaten you and it involves stabbing,choking and being burnt. Half of the man alive that did it say that they did that because they were on drugs, had a lot of alcohol or they have mental health issues.

Zoe’s Inquiry Action

For my inquiry I’m doing goal 14, life below water. I have made a website with lots of facts about marine pollution. I used google sites. I sent my website to the council but I am still waiting for a reply. I made this website to inform people and some of my friends about how we need to save our marine animals and the ecosystem in the ocean. There should be a link to have a look at my website 🙂

Every month my mum and I also do little beach clean at Port Melbourne beach. It’s called the kids beach Combercrew. Sometimes we find these tiny plastic pieces in the sand they are called nurdle they are the little starting pieces of big plastic they use to make toys and any plastic things. I have a jar at home that I collect them in. At the end of the year i will see how many I get. Right now I have around 200. We use biodegradable plastic bags to put our rubbish in.

Merri Creek Clean Up

This is the report on our own Merri creek clean up! It happened on the 6th of May 2018.

We advertised for the Merri Creek Clean Up by putting up posters and Juliette and I made a speech at the Coburg Farmers Market. We cleaned up the area around the wobbly bridge that separates Coburg Harding st and Preston. We found everything below in only 45 minutes! This is only 2 not full bags we had six.

Sample bag 1

 

  • 4 plastic water bottles
  • 5 drink cans
  • 2 juice boxes
  • 5 plastic water bottle lids
  • 5 plastic bags
  • 3 plastic cups
  • lots of random plastic
  • 1 no fluff tennis ball
  • 1 paint brush
  • 1 mini light globe
  • 1 pompom
  • 1 heart sticker.

Sample bag 2

  • .1 coke can
  • .1 coke bottle
  • .1 plastic lid
  • .1 caremello koala wrapper
  • .1 cigarette but
  • .1 coffee cup lid
  • .1 straw packet
  • .1 cheetos packet
  • .12 random bits of plastic
  • .2 bits of broken glass
  • .1 block of foam
  • .1 bit of black fabric
  • .3 blocks of polystyrene
  • .2  bits of blue string
  • .1 plastic ring
  • .Lens cleaner.

Big items/findings

  • 1 mattress
  • 2 tyres

This is the end of our little bit of our findings.

We noticed we found so much rubbish in a short period of time.

We learnt that when plastic gets in the ocean in turns into plastic particle, fish then eat the particle and either die or get severely hurt.

The end thanks for reading:) Tilly, Mae and Juliette

Wishing Tree 2016

3/4G decided this year to put aside a portion of their Secret Santa gift money and put it towards buying presents for the Wishing Tree Appeal. We wrapped the presents yesterday and they are now sitting snug under the wishing tree ready to be opened by someone who would not usually be able to open a gift on Christmas.
Thank you to 3/4G for being considerate and for thinking of others now and throughout the year.
We hope everyone has a wonderful end of year break.

Werribee Zoo Excursion

On Tuesday the 22nd of November, the 34 cohort spent the day at Werribee Zoo. The excursion was part of our studies on Biological Sciences. Despite the not so great weather, the students (and adults) had a fantastic day. We piled onto the safari bus and saw what the whole zoo had to offer, seeing animals such as zebras, rhinos, giraffes and ostriches on our way. The students participated in an educational session about predator and prey relationships and came up close and personal with the meerkats. The 34 teachers would like to thank the parent helpers on the day and the rest of the adults who were prompt and efficient with permission forms.
