I love Durack State School because this school is just brilliant! I had lots of friends and they are all fantastic:  they are like my best friends; they always help in the class and in the playground too. I really miss my family back in Vietnam; I have my cousins there too. I will really miss my friends here at Durack State School. Miss Ho is a very kind and lovely teacher! I love Durack State School, I wish I can come back next year.

I have been here at Durack State School since Year 5. I did not speak English and I had no friends but I did not take long to make many friends. The hardest problem was learning and speaking the English language.  My most memorable moment was Multicultural Week last year  because I participated in the Year 6 dance group and all the activities. My goal when I finish my schooling is to be an astronomer.  I will miss my friends and teachers at Durack. It is the best school Iíve ever been to.

  The first time I came to Durack, I was in Year 3. I felt excited and happy to be here. The Year 3 class was very friendly to me. The teacher was very nice and the students in Year 3 were kind and helpful. My favourite subject is sports and music. I like playing soccer in Physical Education class.  My English is getting better thanks to my teachers in Years 3 and 4. Mrs Lee See also helps me learn English. 

I really enjoyed Indian day for Multicultural Week. I got to taste the yummy Indian food and really liked the roti that Mrs K and Mrs Ali made for one of the Indian activities. I love coming to the library at lunch time and borrowing the Vietnamese books and the English books as well. Durack has a great selection of Vietnamese books for me to borrow. This is my second year at Durack and I am making a lot more friends at this school and I am getting to know the new international students that come here. I am helping Mr Sharma with a new Vietnamese international student that has just arrived in Term 2. I am helping her get to know the school and how it works.
