Today the Greensborough College Band and Choir came and visited Apollo Parkways. The band played us some songs and the choir sang along to some of the songs. My favourite song the band played was Thiller ( By Michael Jackson.) They also played Uptoun Funk (By Brono Mars) Roling In The Deep  (By Adele)  I really loved the performance and I would watch it again.

On the 5th of August grade five at Apollo had a great day at Montmorency as it was leadership day. At Montmorency there was some activities to do with leadership. The activities were Flying Blind, Elevation Frustration, Coin Laundry, Aardvark Challenge, International Jewel Heist, Check in Tangle, Passport Checkpoint, Airport Dash, Translation Station and Words With Friends. Each activity tought you a different leadership skill.

My favourite activity was the Aardvark Challenge. The Aardvark Challenge is when you you have a straw and some M+M’s. What you had to do was move the M+M’s with the straw from one bowl to the other. My group (Dark Green) broke the record of 34 M+M’s. We got 45 M+M’s moved.

I learned so much about being a leader at Montmorency. They made being a leader really fun.
