FC: PARAKI | VISITS | OBERTHUR
1: Paraki arrived at Oberthur Primary School on August 20th. He is visiting everyone's home while he is here but he comes to school each day. | On 27th August I took Paraki home with me. When we got to my house we went on my swings for a while, then Paraki sat on the chair watching T.V while I did my homework. (Lara)
2: On 25-8-08 I took Paraki home. Paraki loves to drive cars. I love to play with him on the trampoline but he got a little sick. I think Paraki loves sleeping at the day time sometimes because he is tired. (Grace) | The first day I had Paraki we went home and I started snapping pictures. I took lots and lots of photos of Paraki and I took him to the school disco! (Davis)
3: On Friday 28th August I took Paraki home for the weekend. First he met my favourite bear Caversham. Then we read some of the book called Anne of the Island together. After we watched T.V. (Katie) | On 3rd September Paraki came with me to the shops. We brought a block of chocolate and ate it on the way to my Grandma's and Granddad's house. We played in the brightly lit garden. (Sarah)
4: A few weeks ago I had Paraki it was cool. I got lots of pictures with Paraki in my boat kit and on our swing. I took Paraki to the park with my Dad and his friends. (Courtney) I put Paraki in my letterbox but I don't know why my letterbox number is not coming up but it is 3. (Ben)
5: I came from school and ate some food. After we ate we watched some television. After tv it was time for some studies so I read aloud to Paraki. While I was writing Paraki played with my huge stuffed toy Pikachoo. I have a feeling Paraki likes Pikachoo. (Sumati) When Paraki and I were coming back from the cafe we were at, I took a photo of him with his seatbelt on and another of him facing me but he was still sitiing on the window sill of the car. (David)
6: The other day when I came home with Paraki I took some pictures and that was a hand made tea pot that my brother had made in school. (Amisha) When we got home he did some horse riding on my sister's horse. He was pretty scared. (Callan)
7: First I introduced Paraki to my favourite toys: Sprinkles, Moo moo, Teddy and Munk! I taught Paraki how to be healthy and eat fruit. (Isobella) | Paraki came to my house and we played all my instruments. First he helped me practice violin and then piano. (Molly)
8: I showed Paraki around my house and where everything was. Paraki wanted to play a game so we played noughts and crosses, Paraki Won!!! (Jasmine) When Paraki got to my house he went straight to my back door and went outside. He then raced back inside and got my sunnies to protect his eyes from the Aussie sun. They were a little bit big though. (Euan)
9: Paraki found his way to my backyard and hid in some bushes. Paraki waddled away and found a duck he was really excited. He played and played and when I told him to come inside he was very disappointed. (Lachlan) | I made a slide for Paraki to play on. He has friends to play with. He likes to play on the slide. We enjoyed it very much. (Edwin)
10: On 7th November Paraki stayed at my house for the week-end. He wanted to have a ride in my toy truck. After that he wanted to do some work. (Justin) | This photo was Paraki on the table eating delicious ginger biscuits. It's his first time eating ginger biscuits and he loves them. (Reneta)
11: When it was my turn to take to Paraki home, he got a ride in my bike’s basket until we got home. (Isaac) | When we got home Paraki asked what the Xbox was. He had a little play on Halo 2. He made it past Level 1 and 2 but died on level 3. It was really cold outside so he stayed inside. He got in trouble from the cops 2 times in Simpson' Hit and Run on the Xbox when he played it again. (Mitchell)
