Have you seen the 2 crashed cars that have been outside 96 Halsey Drive for what seems like forever? Well, we have and we decided to write about it. Some of us were passionate about how much of a hazard this was that we wanted to write to our local council, some thought this was a very news worthy issue while others were curious about what the local residents thought. Here's a few examples of how our writing turned out.

106 Halsey Drive
To Whom it May Concern,
Hello I am a student of Halsey Drive Primary School. I am writing a complaint about the two damaged vehicles outside 96 Halsey drive in lynfield. One Is a red Honda Civic and the other is a white Toyota Ceres.
These two vehicles have been sitting there for a approximately 3-4 weeks and it's very dangerous because the local primary school and kindergarten is just half a minutes walk away. Some kids will be walking home with their younger or older siblings and they might hurt themselves by walking on glass without knowing, touching the two broken vehicles or stepping on sharp objects close to vehicle while viewing them.
Since it is a local area and families have pets such as dogs and cats which they take for walks or keep outdoors, it may also harm these animals. They may injure their paws by running over the broken glass.
These cars also block parking spaces for people who are trying to park their cars. Especially during the busy hours of the day such as before and after school when parents drop off and pick up their kids from school.
As a concerned student, I implore you to take action about this situation immediately.

What Was That?!
By Moon Hee and Anchal
Gina: “So Liz, Have you heard of the new trend about wearing taco suits at the supermarket while sipping ginger beer in the soup section?” She informed her best friend while talking on the phone and putting salsa on her head. Apparently it was good for nourishing her hair roots. Liz rolled her eyes at the other end clearly desperate to talk about something else. Suddenly the sound of a goat screaming alarmed Gina. “What was that?!” she yelled bolting from her seat, sprinting to the nearest window and running outside. Leaving Liz hanging, Gina ran out of the room. ‘Hello? Gina, Gina!!??? Hello
Barbara: Lounging on her chair with prickly, hairy legs and gold chain, Babara, the lazy good for nothing sloth, was watching Family Feud. “No It’s Miley Cyrus you idiot!’ Barbara screamed as she acousted the television. Barbara sighed, ‘If only Brad was here to complain with me.’ Brad had just recently broke up with her because he felt that ‘it wasn’t working out,’ whatever that meant?? The spoiled brat called her mother to turn the TV off (Yes, she still lives with her mother even though she is 41). Her mother scurried down stairs in her baby pink bath robe, with her hair in a turban and said, “coming dahhlinggg! “
All of a sudden a screech soooo loud engulfed the airwaves. You know that girl in your class that has really long nails? Well imagine her scratching a chalkboard mixed with the sound of Tvisha screaming, well, that was what it sounded like. ‘What was that?!’ Barbara thought to herself. She ran out the door, dragging her lanky body with her.
Together: Gina’s flower patterned skirt brushed along the pavement as she sprinted out the front door and squatted on the pavement to see who was inside the crumpled up vehicles. “OMG!” Gina screamed. Before you could even blink, Gina already grabbed her phone and was taking instagram photos.
“What in the world is going on here?!” Barbara exclaimed as she walked out of her house, even though she was the lazy one. “#OMG! #YOLO! #CAR CRASH! Wait a minute... A car crash!!” Gina looked very confused. “This must of been where the sound of a screaming goat came from.”
Mean while...“ Ooooh, who’s that?” Barbara said as she wiggled her eyebrows and twirled her hair with her fingers. A handsome, masculine figure was lying in the car. “OMG! OMG! OMG! It’s JUSTIN!” Gina Squealed. Even though Justin Bieber was soooo last year, she was falling for him. As Justin laid in the car Gina was snapping pictures of Barbara drooling over him. #Fangirl, #Hottie, #Hurt Justin):!
Anyways… back to the crash. Someone was lying down in the contorted Honda Civic, the front number plate was pressed hard against the car that Justin was in. A white Toyota Ceres. Barbara peeked inside the metallic mess and low and behold...… BRAD!!!!!!! Barbara’s ex boyfriend! The broken glass of Brad’s car was shattered across the pavement and the rear bumper was hanging out the rear windscreen. The car was so crunched and ruined that it looked like it had been thrown off a one hundred story tower. “CALL 111 PEOPLE! Justin Bieber is hurt!” “Not that I don’t care about Brad” mumbled Barbara. “Do something Gina!!!!”
“Who me? No, no, no, i’m using my phone to call Liz and report all this juicy gossip. Barbara grabbed the phone off Gina and dialed 111. “ Hello?? Police? Authorities? Ballerina? Ambulance? The Wiggles??? ANYONE????” Barbara panicked. Suddenly the person on the other line picked up.
