The Girl Who Lost Belief


Karen was a fantastic runner. She had beaten everyone in her class at racing in the playground. Karen went to the racing track everyday after school to do laps around the track. “Tomorrow is the try out for the young Olympic games. I need to do my best,” Karen shouted, believing that she could do it. Karen’s dream was to stand on the podium and sing the national anthem of America. When she came home everyone cheered her on. “Come on Karen. You can do it. Come on Karen. Make us proud!” everyone chanted excitedly. The cheer from everyone built up the belief in her heart. The belief that she could win. Sleepily yawning, Karen fell on her bed and slept like a little angel.

“Beep beep,” the alarm clock rang. Today was the day to show off her mad skills. Quickly jumping out of her bed, she got dressed and rushed out of the house. She ran as fast as an eagle catching its prey. Finally, she arrived at the track where she started to get nervous and thought, “Oh no. I can’t do this. I’m too nervous. I can’t believe I thought that I could do this.” Sadly, Karen ran, cowered on the stairs and cried her eyes out. The announcer started calling out contestants. The person was soon going to call Karen’s name but she was still crying until she saw Usain Bolt coming up the stairs. “Now why is a beautiful person like you crying? Shouldn’t you be racing?” Usain Bolt asked in a calm voice. “I want to but I’m just too nervous,” Karen cried. Usain Bolt said confidently,” I know sometimes you can get nervous but there are people who are out there who believe in you. I bet they’re crossing their fingers and praying hard for you. You don’t want to disappoint them now, do you? And besides, if that heart of yours isn’t filled with belief and spirit then you’re gonna have a lot of trouble getting to your goal when your older. You’ll regret it.” Suddenly a tear came sliding out of her fragile eye. Karen ran to Usain Blot, hugged him and whispered, “Thank you Usain Bolt. I won’t let fear ruin my life anymore.” The announcer yelled Karen’s name, and in a flash she ran to the track.

When the whistle blew, she ran as fast as a rocket going to the moon. Her time was a gob-smacking 1min and 10 secs. The announcer told her to wait in a special room until the results were in. Karen sat on the bench and prayed very hard until the announcer came in and declared that the winner was Karen! Karen was blissful and learned to have lots of belief in her heart. From that day forward, she was the best that she could be.

Goodbye St. Paul’s!

Soon, our year six class will be leaving the school to move on to secondary. I would like to thank all the teachers and assistants and cooks and all the staff as well as the government and anybody who has been helping us to make this school better. We can’t carry on the blog sadly, but don’t worry- next year, the next year six class will do it, so that the blog may live forever. We would also like to thank our teacher and everyone who helped in making this blog since it really helped us all and we had great fun writing on it.

I will miss St. Paul’s a lot. I’ll visit them in the future and I hope that you have and learned a lot from our words and stories and that they will always be there in your mind.

Thanks for helping our blog come to life and commenting on our work! You really did a big part in helping to create it. Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Number Rhyme

Once we go,
Twice again,
Third time lucky,
Fourth Big Ben,

Sixth is the stadium,
Seventh is the hen,
Eight is nine,
And nine is ten!

The flower

I was dieing. Withering away. Where was the spring? I had waited all my live to see all the beautiful animals and blossoming flowers.
The cold winter was tearing away at my heart. I felt the darkness and all the loneliness surrounding me. My friends had abandoned me.

The white blanket of snow had cloaked the whole garden. I was in freezing temperatures. I whispered into the air hoping that Jesus would hear me and send down the sun to melt all the snow.

The dark clouds had finally disappeared and I could see a change in the giant. The little boy had melted his heart just to save us. Kids played freely in the warm garden.

Suddenly a penetrating beam of light fell upon the earth. I finally felt alive. The glory of the sun had filled my heart. My friends had came back and
