Should we have school uniforms?

School uniforms are something in almost every primary and secondary school in New Zealand. This has become a strong source of debate. Uniforms are the better choice because they let kids kick their financial background out of the door, gives students a better grasp on smart clothing choices, and keeps kids free from peer pressure.

Uniforms bring people of all different financial backgrounds into one group. The “rich kids” are bound to have expensive clothes, the “poor kids” are bound to have things like hand-me-downs, op shop clothes and other things. If you have a uniform the kids are all wearing the same thing and they can’t tell which is which. It puts the students on an even pedestal and no one is better than the other. This is what we want in modern society and if schools do this it brings the same attitude outside of school.

Uniforms are really smart looking. They make children seem like they know how to dress in a professional sense. This prepares them for the future. Especially if they want to take on professional jobs in the future. It gives students a glimpse into what they should look like so they do not humiliate themselves. We don’t want to humiliate our kids do we?

Uniforms also shield kids from peer pressure. Some kid could’ve just gotten the latest gucci hoodie and then everyone gets one, then there’s the kids who can’t afford a gucci hoodie and they feel left out. Peer pressure is a pretty common thing and students can get really depressed because of it. Uniforms prevent this, because they are all the same.

To conclude uniforms are the best form of clothing for schools. They provide an air of professionalism and make the students feel equal. Sure they may be expensive and a little bit uncomfortable at times but it is worth it. All schools should have uniforms because they make the schools a better place.

Walt: Justify our maths thinking.

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of a presentation and put it into my maths folder. I then answered all the questions on the slides. Once the slides were finished I posted it onto my blog.

Animal testing

Walt: Use correct paragraph structure
What is animal testing? Animal testing is the act of taking animals and using them to test things that may or may not affect humans. Typically this is carried out to find cures for diseases or product testing. The opinions on animal testing vary from person to person. However, animal testing is still something we do to this day. And it needs to stop.

The animals that scientists typically use vary from species to species. It is often lab-grown mice, however, cats, dogs, hamsters, farm animals, guinea pigs, and even nonhuman primates (Gorillas, monkey, etc) are also used. Primates. They test on our cousins. The cousins we work so hard to keep alive. How would they feel?

Some animal testing is even pointless. People are just doing the same tests again and again. All to gain money. Money that they already have lots of . They test over and over again because of competition and money, they want to find their own results instead of using those found by a different company. They slowly make progress repeating a test over and over again without any results and then move on to the next test, repeating this slow agonising process.

We also test make up products on animals. A lot of new makeup products with new ingredients get tested on animals like bunnies or guinea pigs. They make new dangerous products when they already have lots of other safe makeup products. They don't need all these new products when we already have so many and we should instead reuse the ingredients that have already been proven safe.

Animal testing is inhumane. People may see it as a way to solve problems but in reality, we just add more problems. Try to minimize the encouragement of animal testing. Use animal testing free products and trust more reliable labels. Let’s make this world animal cruelty free.

Task Description: For this task I made a new doc and put it into my writing folder. I wrote my five paragraph essay and then, checked for spelling and grammar mistakes. I posted it onto my blog with a Walt, Task Description, Labels, and a Title.

Planting a tree!

Today Mum, Kauri, Toran, Whakairo, and I planted a tree. Specifically a griselinia tree. I put it in the ground while mum digged the whole in the earth. The boys watched. The reason we went and planted a tree is because we want to save the world one tree at a time.
Hookey helped to of course!
You no doubt have heard of the Amazon rain forest and my mum was very passionate about it. So she bought a tree sapling at the warehouse. We planted it in mums paddock and we cant wait to see it grow into a beautiful tree.
