3: I have 3 sisters and 1 brother the eldest is called Mary,the second eldest girl is Thereza and the youngest girl is called Catherine and the youngest of them all is my little brother Anthony. My close friends names are: Joe Azzi, Alex Khoury,George Mina, Justin Achi,Jade Hachem,Rachel GeaGea and Sandra Kazzi. I talk to these people because i can trust them and they love me and I love them.

5: I am a Maronite Catholic. I go to Church every Sunday and I also go to pray and visit the Church before I go to school everyday.
6: The thing that makes me unique is that i can move my ears up and down, I like to be clean and organised yet it never seems to work so I just forget or at least pretend it wasn't me that made the mess in my room. Finally I can make funny jokes that sound funny but sometimes there lame so my sister Mary and I end up laughing at our own and lame made up jokes.. | UNIQUE
7: My 2 short term goals are trying my best to concentrate in class. The second one is not to get another not in my diary because to many can get me an after school detention. My intermediate goal is trying to do my homework and not leave it to the last minute and get it rushed because it will become ugly and you will fail the task. One of my long term goals is to a great report and to please my parents when my parents are happy I am. The second is to please all my teacher and make them proud of me.
8: One of the major positive challenge is going from primary to high school. It was hard getting to class on time because I had lots of trouble walking through the hall way. I overcome this challenge by asking my sister what to do, she told me “finish your work early in class and be dismissed as soon as the bell rings go as fast as you can to class so you go and the hall way is empty”.
9: A positive challenge was moving to my locker quickly I overcome this by being quick in class but not rush my work but get dismissed and go to my locker A.S.A.P.
10: A negative challenge I had to face is misbehaving i asked my parents how to deal with this the told me to avoid distractions and always concentrate on your work only.
11: 1.To a year six student I will say to talk to someone that had already experienced it, go to a year 7. 2.In the six week holidays we have coping lessons it teaches you how to have a good motivation skills. 3.Another great one is calling a counsellor, its always great to know what is going to happen next, or if you just need advice. 4.This one is simple just breathe, breathing helps you relax and that helps you cope with things and stay on top of things too. 5.The last one is chat to a teacher, no one knows more about the school than your teacher, ask them for quality advice.
12: In the next five years I will be in year twelve. I will have to deal with getting a job if I want to get a good job I need to do well in my HSC if I dont it can be really bad for me and I will have a bad reputation and I will never get into a real relationship.
13: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME 7B AND MR SHALALA :) ;)
