There are many animals out there in the sea but why take so many. Well, we won’t have any more to seafood eat and the environment would be ruined. As Bahamian’s, we eat conch. Do you know how many conch are exported out of The Bahamas each year? 600,000+ pounds. So please protect waters and all sea life, by not over fishing, also watch out for poachers, and never take a conch that is a juvenile with less than a 15mm lip thickness. Lastly, I’d like you to congratulate grades 5 and 6 for coming in 1st place at the annual Science Fair. Each year Hope Town either comes first or second in the Science Fair, held at New Visions in Marsh Harbour.
Every kid in Hope Town always looks forward to the Christmas Play. This year it is about a big bad wolf named Scrooge. He learns how to be kind, thankful, and loving in this amazing show. Hope you come along at the Hope Town community center. The children have been practicing since October.
The tickets are sold for 20$ each person and sold at at Elbow Cay Properties. The performances will be held on the 13th, 14th, and 15th of December.
Last Saturday the 11 of November we had a game against the Wildhawgs and Falcons. Then when we went to play Bing!! We had a touchdown and we caught an interception and made a touchdown again. Soon the score board was 24 to 0 . Interception! The Bullsharks are a boss… touchdown the crowed goes wild! There is no stopping this team!! The score board was 30 to 6. TWWWEEEET the whistle blew we won!!!!! The second game passed for other junior teams to play. Macos vs I’m not sure who the other team was but the Macos beat them flat. Then it was our turn tough as bears we put on kleets it was time for us to give the Falcons a beating we got ready we played our game strongly and pulled tricks to beat them . So far they had 24 points we had 0. After 40 mins the game ended 27 to 7.
Each year Hope Town has a wonderful event called The Christmas Village. There is an ice skating rink, food stands, golfing, games, live music, and a raffle. You can join in the fun by visiting www.christmasvillageho.wixsite.com/mysite December 16th, 17th, and 18th from 6pm to 9pm at the ball field. Hope you come!
Recently the roads in Hope Town have been fixed The Jib to the Historical Museum. The roads were full of cracks and now they’re completely flat. People worked on the streets for days and days. It cost $7,000 for the repairs and was paid for by donations of businesses and community members. Also thanks to Abaco Construction for donating the equipment needed. Now everyone is excited for the new roads.
This is a time for love and a time for sharing. We often take the little things for granted in life like the water we drink and the food we eat. On thanksgiving we think how lucky we are even if we do not have much we should be grateful to be alive. Although you may not celebrate thanksgiving we should all still be thankful. I am grateful for my family and friends. On thanksgiving my family has a big family dinner and we all go around the table saying what we are thankful for. Thanksgiving is a wonderful way to say thank you and give thanks.
Every year on the third Thursday of November, we have a fun competition called the Turtle Trot. This is when athletes young and old compete to see who will the race. There is a three mile race for adults and some kids and a school race for children. Our Trot is only one mile but it is still a great workout. It is much like the American Turkey Trot which is mostly the same. Though it is a competition we still strive to do our personal best and have a great time. I challenge you to push yourself to the limits and race this Thursday!
All the money in the 3 mile race goes to Friends Of The Environment!!!
On the 25th of November our annual Box Cart Derby will be held at Big Hill on Elbow Cay. Many people make their own box carts and decorate them however they want to. The Box Cart Derby is when members of the community go to Big Hill and bring box carts to race. Our school will be participating in the race with our own box car. We are not sure yet who will be racing it but it will be a 6th grader. The rest of our sixth grade class will run the food stands and sell snow cones, popcorn, and other delicious snacks. We will be raising money for our 6th grade Eleuthera trip. There will be raffles, t-shirts, and many other exciting events! Anyone can participate if they have a box cart. We hope to see you there.
This Saturday we’re having a game BullSharks vs Wildhawgs and Falcons. The game is taking place in Marsh Harbour. I feel exited to play another game against the Wildhawgs but scared to face the Falcons because they trashed us and made us lose hope in the last face-off. But now I’m ready and as tough as a lion! And ready as a bird! Still we always need practice -that makes perfect.
