FC: =) | My Storybook!
1: GO TEAM! | 2011 | My name is Elie Gerges and I am 12 years old, I will be turning 13 on the 17th of July, 2011. I was born in Lebanon in 1998. | Me in Lebanon ==========>>

3: Football | My favourite team is the Bulldogs! | and my favourite players are Ben Barba and Jamal Idris!!
4: I also like watching television.. My favourite shows are Two and a Half Men and According to Jim. | I also like Call Of Duty: BlackOps.. | I love comdedy and action movies...
6: I was born in Lebanon and I have lived there for two years. After my two years in Lebanon my mum decided that we should go to Australia for our education and such.. I came to Australia when I was two years of age and have lived in New South Wales (NSW) for about 11 years. I visited Foster which is located in Australia when I was 10 years old and I have revisited Lebanon when I was 11 years or age. | I have two siblings, Alain and Charbel. We are triplets which makes us all the same age. | This is a picture of my family: | I have a mother named Jennifer and a father named Albert.
8: The friends I talk to are Georgio Doumit, John Saidi, Joseph Deeb and Jean-Pierre Karam. These are only some of my good friends. I talk to Georgio because he is an old, good friend, John is a funny guy and likes the same iceys as me. Joseph is the funniest guy I have ever met and J.P is a really good person who you could trust.
9: I believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ. I am Christian and Catholic | I also value religious icons and items such as the crucifix.. I value these spirits, people and items because I have faith in God, I am Christian and because Jesus Christ suffered a lot to save us from our sins. | I value God, Mother Mary, all the Saints and Angels and I value my Guardian Angel.
10: I have a lot of interests... well... where could i start? | I like to watch a lot of television because movies are entertaining.. fun.. Oh! and did i mention the games!!
11: Real fun sports.. I like them because you are always doing something in the match.. I hangout with friends and go on the Internet quite often =-) | Basketball and football... oh such great games....
12: dddddddddddddddddddd | Some positive and negative challenges | POSITIVE! | A positive challenge that I have faced so far is going up to high school. Going up to high school is hard for some people but of course we have to cope with challenges through out life. After one week of high school it doesn't become as hard as you think it is. As long as I listen and know what is going on around me high school is not a bad thing. | Another positive challenge I have been through is changing schools. It is hard to move from one school to another not knowing anyone. I have dealt with this challenge by using a diary to know what room I have class in and asking people where rooms are. It is also hard to make new friends although I have dealt with this by joining into games and talking to different people.
13: I have faced so far are... | NEGATIVE! | A negative challenge i have faced so far is the issue called "homework overload." Homework is real hard because you have 7 different teachers. A way to cope with challenges like this is by doing your homework on time. | Another negative challenge is making trying to make or choose the right friends. It is hard to make friends especially if you are a new student. New people don't get recognised as well as other students, although you could deal with this by introducing yourself and talking to people.
14: coping strategies: | If you are a year 6 student coming up to high school you would need to know many things to not have trouble. IF you are having trouble I would recommend you to make a cup of hot chocolate if you are trying to calm yourself down. Punch your pillow if you feel that you need to take you stress out on someone or something. To relax yourself take a nap and get some rest, call a friend and shoot some hoops if you want to forget about what happened and if you are in deep trouble i think you should drink a glass of water, sit down and ask you family for advice. | support strategies: | If you ever need help in high school you should go to your school counsellor because they wouldn't leave you unhappy with emotional problems. If you don't feel comfortable talking to the school counselor you could talk to the principal of the school because they will help you as much as they can unless you feel shy. You could also ask your friends for advice or just talk to different family members. If you are being bullied in school I recommend you to all 1800 55 1800 for the Kids Helpline.
15: Don't leave your problems behind... | 1800 55 1800 | GET HELP
16: A short term goal for me would be to go good in the basketball competition. For this to take place we will need to play as a team, train hard, listen and answer the coach and have fun which is the most important one. | Another short term goal is to get good marks in all my assessments given to me in term 1. I will have to study a lot to complete this goal.
17: One intermediate goal would be to score an overall mark of 85% in my NAPLAN. I will have to study hard, focus in class, be positive during the test, participate in everything, be attentive and most of all, do my best! | One long term goal would be to get good marks in my report by studying for tests and doing good in my assessments. | Another long term goal would be to try and make it into some other rep. sport teams through out the year and win. I will have to do my best to try and achieve this goal.
18: One change i will expect to have to deal with in the next five years is puberty. Puberty is not an easy thing to go through. At one stage you will surprisingly grow hair all over your body, your face, your underarms and your legs. After a while i will have to remember to shave.. | One change i will expect to have to deal with in the next five years... | During puberty I will have to look after my hygiene and keep myself clean. The sweat made from the glands have a bad smell which is called body odour. This could be dealt with by spraying antiperspirant deodorant every morning or so.. It is important to look after my hygiene which could be dealt by having a shower everyday and keeping myself clean. | Also going through puberty your hormones change and I would have to control my emotions. I will stress a lot of the time, I could be sensitive and weak at times too. During puberty there will be a stage where my voice will change. There will also be a stage where I will increase in height. | Puberty is hard to deal with but i will have to control myself.
