5 4 3 2 1... Countdowns coming!


Lots of people like supermarkets. I've heard that countdown might be moving next to our school. I don’t think that it is a very good idea. There will be litter, there will be lots of traffic and it might disturb classes. Read this to find out why I think that.

There will be lots of litter. Have you seen litter around the supermarkets before? Well, that’s what will happen to our school. As people walk past, they will throw rubbish onto the ground and it will drift into the school. Then the kids and teachers will have to use some of their time to pick up the rubbish.

Secondly, there will be lots of traffic. That’s a big one. The road patrollers will have a pretty hard time controlling it. Big trucks are very dangerous to children. Cars and trucks will be going all day long and parents will be late picking up their children for there will be too much traffic.

Lastly it will disturb classes. Loud trucks may disturb children while they work. Children will get distracted and they will fall behind in their learning. Then adults may take them to another school because they think that Parkvale is a bad school.

Some people think having a countdown near our school is a good idea because they can do shopping while they drop their kids off at school. Although this is a good side, there is lots of downsides. My opinion is it’s a bad idea.

So that is why I think countdown coming to our school is a bad idea. There will  be lots of traffic, lots of litter and it will disturb classes. Now that you have read this, I hope that you think countdown coming is a bad idea.


  1. You make some good points in your argument Malena! Mum x

  2. Wow Malena after reading your writing I think you have a great explanation of why we shouldn't have a countdown next to our school it certainly will take some of a rugby and game field to build it because super markets are
    huge. So I think you are right. Nice writing by the way to.
