BTN-History of Voting





This BTN video was about voting for something like president, senators etc. And how women couldn’t vote.

In the 1800 of Australia women couldn’t vote because they were too emotional and weren’t smart for politics. In the late 1800 women wanted to demand change, and started voting rights known as suffragettes. Suffrage to vote for politicians. 

In 1902, Australia became the first to have women vote. But it took over 2 decades to follow. Even if women could vote Aboriginals still couldn’t and they were left out. 

Until 1962 they finally let the aboriginals vote. But you had to be 21. That’s why voting is really important.


My 1st question is in 1902 shouldn’t they already give permission to all women like aboriginals and others?

My 2nd question is when did voting start?

I now understand that voting is very serious in Australia

100WC-… but how did he/she get up there?…

I was watching TV when the person said that a baby somehow got up a roof, how did that baby get up there like on top of the roof? I was wondering for two straight hours thinking and thinking I thought of adults helping the baby get on the roof, the baby climbing up a ladder I really did not know. Finally, I realized that it was an 18-year-old person! He was dressed up in a suit climbing things to get on. That is the only thing I could think have I finally went to sleep and didn’t think about anything.

BTN-Voting Changes





This BTN video was about how the Prime minister wants to make changes to being Senate. And the voters aren’t getting their say.

My first recall is that people were really surprised that the Senates vote were a about a fraction and others were maybe higher.

My second recall is that people vote for their favorite senate to until it ends, and the people who count the vote it would take too long so they choose for the number one that it should get put in, the name is the group voting ticket.

My last recall is that lots of small political parties mostly make ‘preference deals’ and they agree on a preference deal.

My first question is most of time why does people who have like .51% of people vote for this senate and like another 3.51% of people want this senate and the .51% wins?

My second question is that why is the government planning on getting rid of the group voting tickets?

My insight is I now understand that the prime minister is thinking of changing how the senate will be elected and I also now know more about Senates.

I was going to France to see this massive cup it took 10 hours to get to France. Anyway when I got there I saw the amazing cup the origin says that they wanted to explore this country before it was called France then when they were exploring a human yelled. The other explorers saw that he was crushed and they also saw a enormous cup. It looked like a royal family cup owned from a king but they wondered how a king would have this cup they then thought maybe it was from the sky. I believe that this cup was from god himself.

This BTN was about the 3 levels of government 1. federal, 2. state and 3. local

1. That Federal has a big responsibility of defending the nation, also managing Australian money, taxes, communications and the environment. State has control of six states and two territories. Also they have another responsibility of taking care of health, education, mining and agriculture.  Also, They watch most of the police and the courts, roads, trains and public transport. And finally local it might not sound like strong things but it has more then 500 local governments and local does local roads, deal with garbage and pets. And they’re in charge of local buildings and permits.

2.Back in the old days of Australia, (states NSW, OLD, VIC, TAS, WA and SA) all the states were their          very own colonies. But in the 1901 the federation of Australia made all the colonies united in the                commonwealth of Australia.

3. The States passed many of their powers because it was too hard alone. Even with state and federal it was still too hard so in the 1970’s they added local government.

1. That in the 1901 how did the State governments find a person to suit federal and local governments?

2. Is that couldn’t they just have all 3 governments already instead of getting federal in 1901 and then another 69 years they add local governments.

My insight is that I now know that State was the very first one to be a government and then federal then local.

100WC- but what if i was in charge?..

I was in school waiting for the teacher I was about to sleep until he banged the door. Other people were throwing paper planes he said he was going to Japan everyone was just saying like “Why are u going to Japan? It’s freezing over in Japan” I did not care about him leaving because my friends and I hated school not even fraction of liking school. He said that he was picking a STUDENT to be an assistant to help the random teacher. Well I did not get pick for assistant, but who cares right? But what if I was in charge?

BTN-Young Leaders





The BTN was about the national day of Young leaders and Aussie students of how they will come a leader in the future say how a good leader would be.

That good leaders need: that a good leader has to have a good communication, someone who will inspire a whole country or just 1 person, puts responsibility on them self for being a leader for a whole country and helping it grow into a better country, someone who cares about others, someone who thinks about the good things and the bad things in the country.

There is a place they go to and pick something that is an issue for the country like homeless, bullying etc.

My last recall is that the Aussie are going to a place called National Young Leader day and learning how they can be a great leader in the future like asking questions telling about their skills of being a leader.

My 1st question is can you apply when you are at National Young Leaders day like to convince people your a great leader?

My 2nd question is do high school students the only ones to do the National Young Leaders day thing?

My understanding is that when the past leaders go, a new generation will come and be the leaders and it will happen every time like a cycle

100WC-ladder, goldfish, flew, brown, slowly

Hi, I am going to tell you about my life

My dad was a constructer building dad, he was always getting things do build on so I never saw him a lot he always had a long ladder that could extend and a hammer. My mum was a person who had an aquarium that you could look at fish, shark tanks with sharks, most of all, mum always put goldfish because those one kept dying and the goldfish kept slowly going up floating on the surface.

I have a dog, it chases birds, and the birds flew away every time. My dog’s skin colour is brown.

BTN-what is democracy?


Summary- black



insight-dark green

This BTN was about democracy, and the ancient Greek etc.

My 1st recall was that democracy was actually 2 parts, one demos meaning people and kratos meaning power and or rule. My second recall is in ancient Greek the Persians was planning to attack the Greeks

they agreed. but most of the city didn’t.

My 3rd recalls is Greeks were still one of the first people to experiment. but as time went on democracy kind of died.

My  1st question is why did the Persians want to attack the Greeks?  

My 2nd question was why did the Greek decide to not let the woman vote why did the Greek not let the woman vote?

My 1st insight is that I now know that Greek didn’t let the woman vote.

I was in Malaysia, my family and I were going to this ancient civilization where their were lots of weird sticks figures like 170 cm high and was taller then my whole family. It didn’t even have a head but I guess it’s fine because they’re made of sticks. Their were 7 of them but as went along their were about 250000 of them!! We took pictures of them I went to one it to take a picture and it fell on me!! Then one of the hands moved and punch me in the face!! I mean how? Could a stick hand move?                                                                                                  twigmen.jpg (1502×1127)
