During my time as a student in 7 Aqua at Bossley Park High School, I have reflected on the teachings, lessons and topics learnt, and what is most apparent, the ‘blogging’ unit our teacher Mrs Edwards implemented in term 4 has taught us fundamental life lessons and skills. Our class has been given the opportunity to use a technique to communicate vital information and express an opinion in order to bring awareness and to educate the world about environmental issues and to help build future advocates.
Have a look at history’s timeline and it would seem people know more about war and killing rather than life and peace. The obvious choice presented to me was to join my ally Dimitrios in our campaign against future use of nuclear energy and weapons. This gruesome twosome split the atom and created a campaign that will blow your mind… ‘GET THE NUKE OUT OF HERE!!!’. Dimitrios and I were equally involved in the research, slogan, web design, edit and blog. Our collaboration and team work has successfully achieved an exceptional, informative, environmental campaign.
Our topic ‘nuclear energy and weapons’ engaged my interest because it is a huge threat to life. I get that nuclear energy is a source of power and nuclear weapons are a source of protection, but the reality is that both are destructive instruments that causes death and annihilation to humanity and the environment. It is important for me to send out a penetrating message to the world audience, especially political and military representatives, that our duty is to find less harmful substitutes for nuclear products, to ensure the safety of our world, our future.
7 Aqua…’WE ARE THE FUTURE!’ The world needs a voice of reason and future leaders to sustain and protect the rich cycle of life. The next time you turn on a light, just remember the switch is the key to finding the energy and power to light up our planet’s darkness.
