Arrow Heights Elementary School students Amelia Brown and Alice Dunkerson are The Revelstoke Current’s two new student reporter-photographers who will keep the community apprised of all the events and happenings at the school.
The girls are enthusiastic about this opportunity and The Current looks forward to publishing their offerings. Organized by teacher Allison Just, Arrow Heights students have been taking photos and writing short stories for online newspaper since its inception in 2009.
We asked the girls to write short autobiographies by way of introducing themselves to the larger community. Here’s what they had to say about themselves:
Hi, my name is Amelia Brown. I am twelve years old and in grade seven, my eighth and final year at Arrow Heights Elementary School.
I enjoy listening to, and playing music, especially piano. I also play guitar, flute, and I am beginning trumpet this year with the band program. I hope to someday become an orchestra musician. As well, I enjoy writing, photography, and spending time with my friends.
Hi there! I’m Alice, a seventh grade student at Arrow Heights Elementary School. I love to draw, and everyone says that I’m great at it. I love technology including computers, video cameras, iPods, and Wacom drawing tablets. I’m great with computer programs and games. Some I enjoy are Adobe Photoshop CS6, and Adobe After Effects CS6. I’m already creating stuff with these programs!
I like creating and building things, and I use Easy Paint Tool Sai for my digital doodles.
I love photography, and I also like to write short stories and articles.
I’m a determined worker, and I try to make sure that I don’t have homework. I try to get the best grades I can, and I try my hardest on projects.
I also love creepy stuff and scary stories, so if you have one, tell me!
I love pizza, and Oreos.
I’m a fast runner, (sprinter), and I’m good at high jump. Okay, that’s enough about me. I really hope that I will do a good job reporting!
