God sounds like children singing
God smells good like the sea
God tastes sweet like chocolate cake
God looks strong like mountains with snow on them
God feels warm like a hug from Mum

God sounds like bees buzzing and birds singing 
God tastes like the holy bread in Church 
God smells like the pollen of flowers
God looks like the beautiful birds
God feels like kind loving and caring people
From Hannah

Tastes like the wine and the bread when I have it. 
Sounds like blooming flowers in summer and birds tweeting in summer.
Feels like pets giving you a warm hug. Love family and friends.

God looks like laughter, kindness, helping, hugs and smiles
God looks like green leaves swaying in the wind
God feels like Miss Day being your friend
God smells like the deep ocean.

Opo’s Story

We are really PROUD of Paolo in Year 5!
He has come a long way with his writing and his schooling. Paolo has been working really hard on this story
and now we see why! What an amazing and emotional piece of writing. Congratulations on all of your wonderful
hard work! I have been told by his mother that Paolo is currently writing a book at home and is on chapter 13!!!
I think we have an author in the making here :-)
Opo’s Story
In the beautiful oceans there was a female dolphin that gave birth to a beautiful little dolphin
named Opo. Opo loves to play, hide and hunt for stuff in the ocean, until one day when Opo
was swimming with her mother - a big boat was above them, a net came and Opo’s mother
pushed her out of her way, so Opo wouldn’t get caught by the net. The net caught her like a
prison, then a harpoon came and shot her in the back.

Opo was crying; so she swam far away. The water was turning red, all of Opo’s joyful memories
became a sad terrifying nightmare.

She was swimming for two days and two nights, until Opo reached an island.

It was a peaceful morning, the sun was rising so bright, the wind was quiet, the water was quiet as
well (just a little bit). Opo was afraid because she had the feeling that the boat was following her
and that it would chop her into meat for sale, (don’t worry the boat wasn’t following her).

Opo went to the island and not thinking about the boat that killed her mother. In the island there was
a harbour - at the harbour there was a beach, and at the beach there were kids playing and mums
were watching them play. It reminded Opo of her and her mother playing, Opo was depressed and
jealous at the same time.

Opo looked to her right, nobody was there except there was one 9-year-old girl, she had loooong
blonde hair, she had yellow eyes, she was wearing a pale white dress, white as paper and one more
thing; she was wearing a dolphin necklace. She looked at Opo like she wants to eat her but she
wouldn’t do that to a beautiful dolphin. Then she said to Opo “Hi my name is Kelly, don’t worry I’m
not chopping you into thousands of pieces of meat for dinner, I am just trying to feed you some
food”, she throws the food and Opo jumps out the water and catches the food in mid-air.

Kelly was surprised, “wow that’s sooooo cool, I wanna be friends with you!”

A dolphin friends with a female child. Sounds like making friendship.

Kelly let’s go or you’ll be left behind, hurry up!” her dad called for her to come back. Her house is
600 meters away from the beach.

“Goodbye Opo, we will be friends forever and forever. Bye!” She ran up the stairs and walked home
with her father.

Opo was really happy that she made a new friend. Kelly came back the next day to play with Opo
the dolphin, every day Kelly and Opo meet with each other. They play, eat and talk to each other at
the same place.

10 years went by quite quickly. Kelly and Opo grew up. They both are in a dolphin seaworld
where there's dolphins jumping, going through hoops and stuff.

In Opo´s head; his mother is cheering for Opo and telling her to do her best and always saying to
think before she does her performance in front of many people.

Opo will never forget her mother, Opo still think of her mother, that died when she was a baby.
Every time she thinks of her mother; Opo will always love her mother.
