Gillian lees foruth try up mount everest

Dylan Bratton G.L attempt his forth try up Mount Everest In May 2019 Gillian Lee was a mountaineer. He came from Australia to attempt Mount Everest without an oxygen tank. He was on the North side on the Tibet route so he wouldn't go through the enormous traffic jam and possibly die of hypothermia. Gillian Lee put his life at risk. When he got to the death zone he was coughing up blood constantly. Then his body switched off. The sherpas dragged him back to his tent, found everything warm and chucked it on him. They gave him oxygen to keep him alive. Then the Chinese rope fixers came and helped strap him to a sleeping bag to get him down Mount Everest. Once they got him all warm and strapped him to his sleeping bag, they slid him down then called the yak man. After they tied him on they had to get him across the rocky terrain. At base camp a rescue helicopter took Gillian Lee straight to Kathmandu Hospital. When he got there, boy oh boy he got one great bolicking from his mum. That was it, the story of Gillian Lee climbing Mount Everest without an oxygen tank. Dylan Bratton G.L attempt his forth try up Mount Everest In May 2019 Gillian Lee was a mountaineer.

speech

MY LIFE ON THE FARM Did you know that a cow has a 3 foot long tounge as well as 4 stomachs! And did you know that cows eat grass, throws it up, and then chews it again and again. WOW don’t you think that’s gross! Phewww! What is that smell? Our government want to tax our cows for FARTING! Welcome to my life on the farm. My great granddad Ralph bought our farm in 1955. It has always been a dairy farm with jersey and Friesian cows We milk about 180 cows twice a day. When milking you never and I mean NEVER turn you back on the cows. If you do you could get a present on your head. Washing down is a very important thing to do after milking. BEWARE of the giant monster hose, if you let it go you will be down the effluent hole in seconds. Calving season is lots of fun. The calves leap around like they are hip hop dancers to Eminem. Sometimes we have to hand feed the calves with a bottle to teach them how to drink. You put your fingers in their mouth it feels super duper weird. When they start to suck you swap your fingers for a bottle. Calves need milk every day for about 8 weeks before they can go off to eat grass for the rest of their life. Farming can be really grubby. Me and my brother love sliding around in the mud and throwing mud pies to each other. On our farm we grow food for our cows. Dad grows Hay and plants maize, rocket, turnips. My favourite time is when we bale the hay. Sometimes I get to drive the tractor for Dad while he picks up the bales of hay. We all love riding on top of the hay stack, it really high so hold on and try not to fall off or else you’ll be in great grief mate. We grow maize for our cows to eat in the winter when there isn’t much grass. We have to plant our maize in October it takes 4 months to grow before it is ready to harvest. Once the chopper cuts the maize it is stored in big concrete pits that we cover with plastic and 100’s of tires. I like being on the farm in the winter. When you walk to the cowshed in the morning the wind feels like ice on your face. When it is cold you can stand in cow pats to warm up your feet. There is always lots to do on the farm, when mum and Dad are doing chores Riley and I do donuts on our motorbikes and get in trouble! I love my life on the farm, its crazy, cool and I get to hang out with smart cows. And I know for a fact that cows are smart as I saw on the news that at a school in Hora Hora there were cows that turned up ready for school in the morning.

EMR thank.letter

Dear Isabel   8.04.19


 I would like to thank you for taking us to Whatuwhiwhi to experience fish we have not seen before. I would also like to thank you for putting all your effort to find us a beach to go snorkeling. We enjoyed it very much.

The highlight of my day was swimming with fish and seeing them swim one by one in a line. I saw a few spotties, snapper and lots of kina and starfish too. 

So I would like to thank you again for all your time and taking us to Whatuwhiwhi. I wish you could take us again, it was so magnificent to see marine life!

Yours faithfully, 
Dylan
