Yesterday we had our showcase from 16:15 to 18:30. We had to show our parents what we have done. It was very scary. We also wore our t-shirt. From the biginning of this project I've learnt alot from ThinkQuset till now.

Last night was our ThinkQuest showcase! I got so much stage fright, I started getting stomach cramps! We had to talk about 4 pages each. Anyway, last night the band played (I am in the band) 5 songs. Today we are going to upload the photos of last night to make a photo story. Last night I was talking first! I was doing the introduction which was really scary. After we had said what we had to say, we had yummy cupcakes and either green, yellow, orange or pink jabbas. Green is lime, yellow is pineapple(my favourite yum!), orange is orange and pink is apple flavoured jabbas you can get. The cupcakes were so delicious! They matched our logo on our white T-shirt. For the showcase, I wore the white T-shirt and white pants with white sandles. The cupcakes were made by a young teacher in grade 1. We did our showcase in the lecture theatre. The entrance was stunning! It had like a desert-sea kind of look. Jessica, who designed the logo was also there. Her logo was everywhere in the entrance. A jabba is a type of cooldrink that is in a triangular shaped box. It is really nice, and for those who have not tasted it. I learnt this after I had written it. I learnt how to make a movie in PhotoStory. I learnt to add sound.
We worked very hard. I am looking forward to tonight's celebration. The band will play from 17:00 to 17:30. We are going to have the celebration the same time as the P.E. members.
We are also going to skype to the P.E. members. We are going to have alot of fun tonight!

We filled the our journals page so now we are doing it on our journals page 2. I'm having so much fun. The showcase is tonight. Unfortunately the Provincial Tour Guide Registar is on leave. I am working hard but I'm so excited for the showcase. We were just working out who was going to say what. We each get to explain four pages.

Last night it was the showcase. We all wore our t-shirts with the logo on. On skype we communicated with two boys in P.E. They were also having there showcase. They showed us they were also wearing the t-shirts with our logo on. The principals from both our schools talked to each other. I was so nervous but it wasn't that bad. In the beginning the band played. I am in the band and I play the flute. The band was really good. I'm sure everyone thought so too. We had the showcase in our Lecture Theate. The decoration was beautiful. It had an African theme. There were cupcakes and they had our logos on. There were even sticks that had our logo stuck to them. They looked like lollipops. I'm quite sad now that we are going to finish this project. I had lots of fun doing this project and enjoyed collaborting with Luzuko and Lithemba.
Tristan's journal number 2
23 April 2009. It has been wonderful doing Thinkquest (even though I have had to miss my sports).
29 April 2009. I have done everything I needed to do. I am busy preparing for the show case. I just can't wait for the showcase.
30 April 2009. This is the last time I will be updating this journal. The showcase was absolutely wonderful! The band played, we skyped to our partners in PE and we presented our work. We only downloaded the slide-show and movies because if we downloaded everything, it would take to long.
