Did you know?

Chinese portraits aren’t Chinese at all, they’re European! Other famous types of poems are Irish limericks, Japanese haikus, sonnets like Shakespeare’s or acrostics. Some poems are autobiographical. What would you write in yours?

What does writing a yearbook mean to you?

“To me, yearbooks are an opportunity to express myself and to enrich the lives of the other members of the student body through the joy of the written word.” Alisha

“All of the best moments and memories throughout the year documented in one amazing book you get to keep forever.” Shayla

“A time capsule of this school year. It is something that is so unique and can never be replicated.” Amanda

“Not only are we creating the book, we are coming together as a class and making memories that will last forever.” Brian

“We do not just write essays and take pictures, we document history.” Shannon

My profile

If I were a colour, I’d be blue like the summer sky.
If I were a film, I’d be Star Wars to use the force,
And if I were a day, I’d be Saturday of course!

If I were a piece of clothing I’d be a pair of shorts
because that’s what you wear when you play sports.
If I were a book, I’d be the BFG because I love Roald Dahl,
If I were an animal, I’d be a tiny mouse.

If I were a city I’d be London with its London Eye,
If I were a dessert I’d be…
