Australian of the Year 2004
Steve Waugh AO
Born in 1965
Test Cricket Captain
Raised in western Sydney, twenty-year-old Steve Waugh played for Australia in the 1985 Boxing Day Test. He initially had more success in One Day Cricket and was a key player during Australia’s 1987 World Cup win. Inconsistent in test matches, Steve was replaced by his twin brother Mark in 1991, but he returned two years later and was the top-ranked international batsman by 1995. Waugh succeeded Mark Taylor as captain of the test team in 1999 and presided over an era of Australian dominance, including a record 16 consecutive victories. In 2003 he saved his flagging career with an inspirational innings at the Sydney Cricket Ground, reaching his century on the last ball of the second day.
Waugh retired in 2004 having played a world record 168 test matches and 325 one-day internationals. His regular tour diaries were frequent bestsellers and he was well known for his philanthropic work with victims of leprosy in India.

Steve Waugh said…
“I’m inspired by ‘courage’ and ‘character’, especially in children in challenging circumstances.
I’ve always wanted to help sick children who through no fault of their own, ‘fall through the cracks’ and have nowhere to turn for help. ‘Somewhere to Turn‘ is the reason for establishing my Foundation.
“To me, being Australian is about looking after your mates, taking care of the less fortunate, supporting the underdog and enhancing the spirit that makes all Australians unique.”




The Rose Tree


‘O words are lightly spoken,’
Said Pearse to Connolly,
‘Maybe a breath of politic words
Has withered our Rose Tree;
Or maybe but a wind that blows
Across the bitter sea.’
‘It needs to be but watered,’
James Connolly replied,
‘To make the green come out again
And spread on every side,
And shake the blossom from the bud
To be the garden’s pride.’
‘But where can we draw water,’
Said Pearse to Connolly,
‘When all the wells are parched away?
O plain as plain can be
There’s nothing but our own red blood
Can make a right Rose Tree.’


information report!!!


we are creating solar heated water in a tub check post 2 for how to make solar heated water.

we are trying to improve our 3/4 learning community by making it more energy wise with using more sustainable energy sources like:

  •  wind power
  • solar power
  • biofuel
  • water power

we hope to get some more ideas to present to you

we really would like so suggestions


For my first post, I will tell you how to make solar heated water.

First – Get the following items.

  • A big tub
  • Small black hose approximately the same length as your tub
  • Duct tape (“I just learned that it’s not duck tape but rather duct tape”)
  • Water for the tub

Secondly – You will need to get the tub and fill the tub approximately half way with water.

Thirdly – Get the black hose and submerge one side of the hose in the tub of water and tape it down.

Fourthly – Get the opposite end of the hose and suck on that end, to get the water to come through the hose.  Quickly place that end in the water and tape it in place.

You are now done.  What do you think will happen?
