The Upper Ground floor is bustling with the 40 students from Kingston International school, who have come to see our exhibition and fill their brains with 11 different issues. They are competing with one another in quizzes, pinning fins on sharks and admiring the amazing plastic bird that Plastic Pollution made. The school that we recently had, Japanese International School, didn’t want to leave! Yesterday and today have been really tiring but rewarding, as we explain our issues over and over again. The Anti Shark Finning group (my team) is being mobbed by curious students wondering what on earth the giant soup can dangling from the ceiling is doing there! The soup can is question is a model, Andy Warhol style, of Campbell’s condensed shark fin soup - a figment of our imagination (luckily). It has been attracting many customers, and as a result my whole group is feeling rather worn out. Happily, this is the last day of exhibition until next year!
This has been a long project but I think we have all done a great job. People are having fun and enjoying the games. Are grade one buddies are really enjoying the exhibition, I think that my group has done so much to get to this point and worked as a team for all of the project, we have been there for every part of this and i mean that for all of the groups so well done.And for everyone who is watching or playing the games and finding out information I hope you have had fun watching or looking around are exhibition.
Right now everyone is very working very hard and presenting everything that they have learned to the children that have just arrived. The Grade 6 and 7’s have arrived and I see that they are learning so much even if they had just entered the exhibition. I see that the outside guides are going to welcome another group of children that are ready to learn and play the games that the grade 5s have made for them. I see outside that the LSY, the local school across from HKA, students have arrived too. I have just seen a flood of student rushing to get information from each exhibition both.
The live stream computer is charging because so many people have used it to show all of the thoughts of everyone in the exhibition. I see smiles all the way down the exhibition hall. Yesterday was a great day for the 5th graders to show their exhibition journey and what they have learned. Now even more games are taking their place and so many people are having fun. But the 5th graders need to keep their energy up show even more people their information.
The Kingston International school has just arrived, they are really enjoying our exhibitions groups and the quizzes. I’m from the Endangered Animals exhibition group and I am passionate about this issue because some animals are getting extinct because humans are hunting them fro their body parts and affecting their habitat so they have no home to live in, if the animals at the bottom of the food chain gets extinct, the animals that eat them will also go extinct because they have nothing to eat, that means it might affect humans and we will also have nothing to eat. The challenges on the exhibition journey were planning our action, deciding on whose secondary research is better and more! This is the last day of our G5 exhibition.

Exhibition is like a long walk that hopefully never ends. It’s tiring at some points, but once you get to the top you feel amazing. Finally, we have made it! This has taken about six months. Congratulations 5th Graders! They have finally gotten back on filming and are interviewing Luke from Shark Finning. It’s the end of the day and everyone is exhausted but we all need to stay energetic because it’s the last class of the day. I think they saved the best for last because it’s our cute buddies coming to see our exhibition issue’s.
We have just gotten a re - boot for about ten minutes so we should be ready to go. I hope they enjoy it. Although, it will be fun to have our buddies coming to our exhibition, it is still going to be incredibly hard to explain to them our issue because they are our lowest age group that is visiting us today so they may get distracted. However, I do think they will really enjoy our presentations and learning about our group issue’s. On the live stream right now and are interviewing the grade one’s to see how they are liking our exhibition and what they learned or what could be improved on. So far so good. It’s so amazing to see my friends and I grow up in the past years.
I can see what had definitely change in the past year. At the start of the year I was really excited about moving up to 6th grade, but now it’s so close I realize that I am not yet ready to let go. Right now my group is getting interviewed about their issue. My group is “Children’s Rights to Education”. I care about this issue because I want to become an actress when I grow up and there are some kids who can’t go to school which means that they can’t grow up and be what they want to be or not get a job at all so it’s really sad to see that happen and I really want to make a change in the world, so why not try and prevent this issue from growing. Start out small and slowing start getting big, our group are starting out by helping kids in Hong Kong but hopefully we can start going into places like Africa later on in the year.
Thank you so much for reading.
The Grade 6 and 7’s have just arrived. Everything is going well and we have been working very hard to educate and share our knowledge with them. The secondary students i have seen have learned a lot. The grade 5 students are also working on their jobs very well. Right now the outside guides are introducing our G5 exhibition to the LSY students. They have now entered. Our groups have Sprang back into action.
I see that the deforestation group have had a lot of visitors recently. They seem very popular. The live stream crew are interviewing the shark finning right now. Soon enough, the live stream crew computer will be charged because it has been used for the whole day. The LSY seem to know a lot already even though they just came!
Our grade 5 students need to save their energy and keep talking. I can see that many students need a run around or a movement break. Exhibition is hard work and it is not gonna last a lot longer. Hopefully we can have a good weekend and rest.
