  One day I was playing Minecraft and building a house out of wooden tiles and nether stairs. When I was nearly done, a big, red, hot laser shot down at the house. The house burst into flames. I knew what it was. I was the drone that I had been trying to defeat. As [...]

The Journey To Becoming Equal

  The doctor lowered my chair and said, “don’t worry, they don’t hurt.” Still, I felt scared as the eye drops were put into my eye to dilate them. They stung terribly! My mind automatically assumed the worst as a doctor then led me through a passage of hallways to a friendly, white room. It [...]

Ontology 101

Posted on: January 18th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Anna | 16 WA
  They are in the kitchen, and Amelia is kneeling in front of her house’s pantry, searching for something, and Mags is perched on the countertop, skirt falling neatly over her crossed knees, thinking about how unfair it is that Amelia’s the one who will eventually end up with the time-travel powers and she isn’t.

Attacking Enemies

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Emily | 11 VIC
  Blue house and Red house have been enemies for at least a century. Brookside College have houses Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. I’m in Blue house but I think Yellow is my personal favourite. Next week is the house championships. I’m playing for Blue! We need to play table tennis, fun run, athletics and [...]

  “Hey!” said the frog. “We need an animal to take control of the jungle.” “Yes we do need to have one,” said the giraffe. “It will be called the King of the jungle,” said the frog. “Everyone calm down please, I will think of something,” said the frog. “We will chose from four animals,” [...]

Frozen Out

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Lily | 11 ACT
  Everyone is hurt once in a while, everyone, no matter how careful you are. I used to fall off my bike and get scraped knees. My skin would curl like a ribbon used too many times or a scroll of parchment. The red liquid that trickled down my leg would almost be comforting as [...]

Bullying Must Stop

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Lily | 11 ACT
  It was like any other day, the air was crisp and the grass exerted a beautiful CRUNCH sound when it was heavily trodden on by school students walking towards the dreaded school grounds. A few kids were happy to go back, ready to see the excited looks on their friends faces, or simply just [...]

  Once there lived a lonely orphan called Anna. Anna is very cheeky and daring but also very smart. Anna lives in a a rickety old orphanage with awful Mrs Brown. One day Anna wanted to escape she had always wanted to but she knew tonight was a perfect night to do it she thought [...]

Sore Loser

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Juana | 14 NSW
  Perfect, sporty, always first, best, number one. That’s what they all call me because I always come first. Literally. I come first place in anything, you name it! Running, swimming, athletics, tennis and more! Often, people from my school would ask me “Grace! How are you so perfect?” I always smile and say “Practice.” [...]
