BAN Homework - Jasmine

This is a major problem! The big word...Homework. Nobody likes it whatsoever. Don’t we already have to work at school 6 hours a day and 5 days a week?
We can all agree that it's too much for us kids. We have school work so why homework? Heres a few reasons.
    
First of all parkvale is such a great school that by the time we’re home our brains will be overloaded with knowledge, We can all agree theres no point in homework with all the great stuff already in our brains! Homework will flow it all out within seconds! Nobody wants that to happen!

Secondly,
Us poor kids need time to take a chill pill after a long six hour day at school. If you think about it even closer I’m sure kids like to spend time with their families as well. Imagine how much fun that would be a nicely fun and most relaxing day with your family!
Lastly This is a reason for the poor hard working and run down most certainly tired teachers out there that suffer printing out millions upon of sheets and marking them after a long busy day...When you could be doing something better like teaching your students new stuff on the main five subjects I was just mentioning.

So teachers, I’m positive you can agree with most varieties of my selected and obviously very helpful reasons why we shouldn’t have homework. So ban homework! Do the right thing, I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely, Jasmine Taylor.

As I gaze out into the crowd I gulp and listen to the sound of my friends speaking with extra confident voices. I was starting to think it was my turn to talk and confusing myself through all the people.

Clapping loudly with bright smiley faces was all I could think about to cheer myself up. More people start doing their part and doing really well, After a little while I notice my legs started to shake.

I looked down to try make them stop that didn’t work, nor did holding onto my legs tightly. Taking slightly nauseous breaths I see my turn is coming up. Ashleigh was the one person before me, and I start to freak out the littlest bit.

Finally I had to stand up. Luke held the microphone and spoke up loudly. In my head my face was going bright red but in real life my face was most probably pale and full of silence.

Now was the time to be confident. I held the microphone up to my chin and admire all the five hundred kids staring up at me. I talked loud and confidently With my lines right in front of me.  It was spectacular to notice that I had overcome my fear. Maybe it wasn’t so bad after all.
