Hi, my name is Katie. I am going to tell you about the great things about Australia.

In Australia we have special celebrations each year. One is Australia Day. Australia Day is the day Australias 1st government was made. Anzac Day is the the day we remember the people that died in the War to save our country. Birthdays are the day we celebrate when we were born. New Years Day is the day we celebrate when we enter a new year. Christmas is the day we celebrate when Jesus was born. We celebrate these days with family and friends.

In Australia we have some different foods to other countries. On special occasions we might have a barbecue. When we have a barbecue we might have sausages and steak. People in other countries might not even eat outside. For school we usually eat sandwiches. The most popular spread is vegemite. People like vegemite because it is a strong salty taste. Some people eat Lamingtons when they invite them for lunch. Lamingtons are sweet and have coconut on the outside. Pavlova is a food we eat for dessert or parties or celebrations. it has meringue on the bottom and usually has fruit on top. It is very sweet and delicious. For breakfast we sometimes eat Weetbix. We have them with milk. You can put Maple syrup, Honey or Sugar on top. ANZAC biscuits are crunchy and golden. All these foods are Aussie.

Australians like to play sport and watch it. Nearly all Australians participate in a sport. The sports we play are hockey, cricket, teeball, tennis, softball, baseball, footy, rugby, soccer, horseriding and swimming. Nearly all of these sports use a ball. A lot of these sports are professional sports. People play these sports so they get fit and have fun.

People in Australia come from all around the Earth. In Australia we have from China, India, Scotland, New Zealand, Turkey, Africa, Srilanka, Malaysia, Germany, America, England, Britain, Asia, Greece, France, Paris, Rome, London, Bali and also people who were just born in Australia. Austalia is a good country because we except everybody. Everybody fits in. Although everybody is different we can all come together in the same country.

Australia is an interesting country because of our sports, food, celebrations and people. I hope you now understand that Australia is a awesome country and we will accept anyone. Please don't destroy us.

Hi Katie This is Mercadees I just read your story. I heard that your country has people from China, Scotland, New Zealand, Turkey, Africa, Srilanka, and Malaysia that cool ! I liked how you put what all of the special day you'll the in Australia. I was wondering what does Rugby means. I had a Question about something in your third paregraph where is Srilanka and Malaysia. I was looking for an example of why people want to destroy Australia. Bye

Rugby is a type of football using an oval shaped ball. There are 13 players on each team in Rugby League and 15 in Rugby Union. Srilanka and Malaysia are in Asia. The Aliens want to destroy Australia because they are not sure if there are intelligent people living there.

Hi, my name is Katie. I am here to tell you about how interesting Australia is.

Each year Australia has a special celebrations. The most special celebration for Australia is Australia Day. It is the day Australia's first goverment was made. Another is ANZAC Day. On ANZAC Day we remember when all the people who went to war and those who died to save our country. Others are Birthdays and Christmas. On your birthday you might get presents and or have a party. At Christmas people celebrate when Jesus was born and they catch up with family and friends. It's the same at Easter except we are sad about Jesus dying.
