My Workshop (my thoughts)
I thought our workshop went really well and that we taught the people that came to our workshop lots of interesting information. On the downside we did suffer some technical difficulties because our iPad went flat but we did have work in our books as another source of information. We got good scores from the people that came to our workshop and here is what we thought of some other peoples workshops. I think that we used our time pretty well (me anyway, I don’t know about the rest of my group). The most interesting things that I learnt were about all the stories of histories AFL players that have a different cultural background.

Darcy’s workshop – Topic – European settlement
Facts I learnt:
. Aboriginal people arrived in Australia about 60,000 years ago
. The Euro’s weren’t respectful of the Aboriginals as they poisoned their food and did other terrible things
. The Aboriginals respected the Europeans
. Europeans tried to kill the Aboriginals

It was an Interesting workshop and it was good that I was learning about the history of my own country and how it all originally started. I rate this a 9.5/10.


Anton and Umi’s workshop – Topic – Aussie and Japanese Culture
Facts I learnt:
. Top Aussie food is a Hamburger and the top Japanese food is Tonkasu
. Top Aussie sport is AFL and the top Japanese sport is Sumo Wrestling
. Top Aussie drink is Coke and the top Japanese drink is Iced Green Tea

There workshop was pretty good but could have been spoken better and they should have focused more on the culture than just the countries favourite things. I rate this a 7/10.

Angus and Conall’s workshop – Topic – Refugees and Asylum seekers
Facts I learnt:
. Refugee is a person who has to flee their country because of war
. An asylum seeker leaves their country for a better life or career
. Most people that come to Australia as refugees are from Asia

This workshop was presented pretty poorly but they did know their information and they told me a lot of interesting facts. I rate this a 8.5/10.
