The day came before the exhibition and year 5’s came pouring down the stairs to see what we had inquired into. I felt a bit nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. After the year 5’s had left I felt bit better and not as nervous as I knew how it felt to talk about all the information I found. The big day came and our teachers walked all the year 6’s down to the pack to start the opening ceremony. Everyone got to go up on stage to perform or talk about their creative expression and when it was the poetry groups turn to read there poems I then went up on stage with the other 5 kids in my group and we all read our poems. Everyone clapped and I could hear my mum cheering most of all.
We all then got dismissed and all year 6 students went to their stalls to set up and get ready because before we knew it parents came rushing and running through the doors eagerly to see what we had all done. I was very excited and when the first few people came to talk to me I felt proud that I had a lot of information and that I could share with the parents and kids because I didn’t want to just sit in my stall and wait for people to ask me questions that I couldn’t answer. I really thought that I did an amazing job in my presentation because I got over 100 people coming and talking to me and saying that I really thought hard when I did my 6 people and that it was a clever idea. It got to the last few minutes until the big day would finish in the morning and I called some more people like I was doing throughout the whole exhibition. Still I enjoyed every bit of the exhibition and even though I had the nerves, they eventually went away when I knew what I was expecting.
Tired and sick of talking I went home that night ready to come back to school to show my presentation again but in the night. I had lots of fun especially reading my poem in the opening ceremony. My parents were telling me so many people were coming up to them saying how wonderful I was talking to everyone and that I had made them more aware about my worldwide issue which is a basic need otherwise we wouldn’t survive. This was
an experience that I would never forget. I collaborated with a lot of the adults of children around me about all our topics and people were very interested in what I had to say. The exhibition just flowed from the start to the end with everyone walking away with big happy smiles on their faces. The whole exhibition went with a bang and a roll and adults even said that!
