MTYP visits SSES

written by Ben
At the start of the day there was a play.  It was called "The New Canadian Kid."  It was about a kid who came from a place called Homeland and moved to Canada.  The main characters were Nick, Mench, Mom and Mog.  Mog was always mean to Nick.  One time when Mog was frustrated, she bent Mench's arm.  But they started ignoring her and she finally stopped.  It was a very funny play!!!!

We had a play at our school in the gym.  There was a boy named Nick and he moved from Homeland.  Homeland is a made up country.  They also made up some languages.  There was German, Spanish, French and Icelandic.  When they put it all together, it sounded really weird.  When Nick was moving to Canada his friends gave him a bowl for a going away present.  When he took his bowl to school the next day, Mug was picking on him and she grabbed his bowl and broke it on Mench's head.  Nick went home and tried to hide his broken bowl behind his back.  When he sat down, his Mom said "What's behind your back?" and Nick said, "Nothing!"  Then he said my bowl.  He showed his Mom and she said, "What happened?  How did your bowl break?"  Nick said that he had dropped it and his Mom asked his what really happened.  Nick said, "At school, there's this person that keeps bullying me.  She grabbed my bowl and broke it on Mench's head.  The next day, Mench was finally being nice to Nick, but Mug was still teasing Nick.  After Nick and Mench were best friends.  Mench and Nick started leaving Mug out so she would see how it felt to be left out.  I think Mug picked on Nick because Nick was new and he didn't speak Canadian.  Nick and Mench were playing baseball and Mug stole the baseball bat and chased them around trying to hit them.  When Nick and Mench were ignoring Mug she grabbed Mench's arm and put it behind his back.  She pulled it up and started to hurt him.  Finally Nick game her the basketball.  They went to play with something else.  Mug was calling Nick a Sgak, which is a mean made up word.  When Mug was bullying Nick and Mench, they were just ignoring her.  Then she started to hurt them because they wouldn't talk to her.  I think Nick felt scared when he moved to Canada!

The most amazing thing about Canada is that we have so many different lucky we are to be able to explore and embrace different ways of life and unique perspectives.
