Today all of White Hills went to our sister school, Jinji Lake for the last time this year. We had 2 different classes our first class was calligraphy where we had to use ink and a brush and draw Chinese characters on a piece of paper, we all done awesome but I think by far Mr Schaeche was the best! Then we all went to the library where our bags were to have a 5 minute brake, then we went to another class which was English and of course we were all good at that! We had to talk about different holidays we have in Australia such as Easter and Christmas we then learnt about the different festivals in China and learnt when the Chinese students birthdays were. At the end of the class the students gave us all gifts I received a fan, pop up card, Chinese lollies and lots of different types of dumplings which tasted amazing! After we had lunch the principal, some students of Jinji Lake, our exchange students and all the WHPS kids and Mr Schaeche all went into the meeting room to say our goodbyes and Cody had to get up and say a few words to say thank you for having us over the 2 days. They all gave us many gifts and we gave them ours and said goodbye to everyone then Cameron, Jakob and I all said goodbye to Elaine, Suri and Matthew which we were all sad to say goodbye to them again. Overall staying at Jinji Lake for 2 days was amazing and we hope to see them all again sometime soon!
Yesterday morning we woke up and went on the bus to Jinji Lake school . Once we got there we had a tour of the school and had a paper cutting lesson. After the lesson we had a kung fo lesson than we went and got our gifts to hand out. Then we had lunch with the Chinese students and then the home stay students went with the home home stay Chinese students. Than Siobhan and Mr S went back to the hotel.

Than we went back and had pizza for Dinner it was yum. After that we went back to Matthews house and road his 2 segways it’s was really fun. Than I went home back to the hotel and went to bed-Cody
Yesterday I did an overnight stay with Joe. Joe is the JinJi Lake student who came to Australia for 8 months.
First, we went to the Humble Administrators Garden which was a very interesting garden, they had lots of cool plants there. Then we went to his apartment. We then went to the park and stayed there for about 1 hour, mostly riding on Joe’s skateboards. It was really fun. Then we went to dinner we had chicken and dumpling they were delicious. We had our showers brushed our teeth and went to sleep.
The next day we woke up early. For breakfast I had these breakfast biscuits. After that we went to JinJi Lake for half the day. It was one of my best day yet.
Last night was very exciting for me and Mike. We were excited because I was doing the over night stay with Mike. It was really fun. We did many activities. We went to this street by a Canal, It was very interesting. Mike and I made a Bracelet. That was very fun. After that we went to the pants building. Mike’s parents got many photos of me there. Next we had dinner. I was not very hungry so I only had one dumpling. We had many different plates of food on the table. Then we went to Mike’s house. I unpacked my bag and picked my bed. I got the top bunk. Then we went to the park and played soccer. The goals were two trees. We played there for around 10 minutes. Then we went to a massive shopping centre. We walked around in the shopping centre. We went to a big book store. We looked at the many floors of books. After that we went to a burger place. I got a burger. It was so yum. Mike and I played darts and UNO. I won UNO. We played 2 games. Then we went back to Mikes house. We went to sleep. The mattress was not even really a mattress. It was like a blanket. I still got to sleep though. Then in the morning I got a big surprise. Mike woke me up at 6:00 and said we need to get ready for school. We got ready and played the computer. Then we went to school and did many interesting things.
