SpeakUp - Invermay Primary School Age 10: What do you like about your community? I like the healthy, clean and maintained environment, well lit streets, friendly people and safety. Unknown people greet you with a smile and a hello. The roads are clean. Structures like bridges and shops are safely made. There is a supermarket within a few hundred meters of my home. If you had three wishes to make the community better what would they be? 1. I wish smoking would be BANNED from Australia. Not only does it KILL people but the surrounding of the person is very unhealthy for other non-smokers. It damages the environment and the ozone layer is being damaged from the smoke caused by smoking! 2. People under 14 shouldn't be allowed to walk the streets after 11 p.m to 4 a.m without supervision or unless permitted by an adult. Kids and children could get into all sorts of trouble and get hurt or lost. Most kids get lost like this. 3. Finishing school, high school, college and university should be compulsory and should be followed by a carrier. This means scholars won't permitted to drop out of school. This is helpful because when people retire of old age they have a luxurious life ahead and don't need to suffer. What would our community look like in 2035 if your wishes become reality? If my wishes came true this is what would happen: Wish 1 - People will have a longer lifespan, reduce asthma and clean the environment. It could stop a lot of litter like cigarette boxes, cigarettes and empty packs and lighters. It will create a green, healthy environment. Wish 2 - Kids wouldn't socialize with bad people and won't be hurt. They won't get lost in the streets or in the wild. Parents won't have to worry if they leave their children home for a short while and it will stop families breaking apart. Wish 3 - If this happened then Australia will be well educated and at standard level for achievement. People might think it's a hard life but you just have to learn. It's much easier than grape picking in the hot sun or the cold rain and not being able to buy food! When you get to the age of 15 then you can do a job as well as education and when you get to an elderly age you can relax with trouble free days for the rest of your life. Your children could even help you when they get to the age of 15. If those wishes were applied the law then Australia would be fantastic continent!

SpeakUp - Lilydale District School Age 16: What do you like about your community? Lilydale is a small community twenty minutes from Launceston. Even though Lilydale is small, the people in the town are very kind hearted and help out other people when they need it. If you had three wishes to make the community better what would they be? 1. To involve the kids and young adults in out-of-school activities. 2. To have more school opportunities. 3. To have events in the town. What would our community look like in 2035 if your wishes become reality? If these three wishes came true, this community would be and even better place than it is today!

SpeakUp - Invermay Primary School Age 10: What do you like about your community? My friends live around me so I see them quite often. There is a soccer field where I can play across the road, which has soccer goals and a cricket pitch, which makes it heaps of fun. At my dad's house my uncle lives down the road. If you had three wishes to make the community better what would they be? 1. I wish that less waste (including smoke) will be put into the world, which will mean people won't get as sick in some causes and the world will be clean and tidy. The Ozone Layer has had a hole put in it from pollution, so it has to stop. 2. Over the years, rainforests have been cut down for wood. Wood is used as fuels and materials, so it's a help to us. However, is it a help to the animals living in trees. The answer is NO. We are destroying there habitat. 3. Lately, people have been getting very obese, meaning that people are getting fat from junk food. Food labels on packets and boxes are lies and people fall for it. Take Milo, for example. It says on the packet that it has a lot of protein, but it doesn't. What would our community look like in 2035 if your wishes become reality? If pollution stopped, the world would be a lot more healthy. A world without much smoke in the atmosphere will mean you breath in fresh air and global warming will not be a problem. Weather will be a lot better and the world will be safer. And how do you think animals feel? What if your home was destroyed? We need to stop cutting down as many trees and everyone will still be happy. Growing trees is also a good change because we need oxygen to breath, and trees produce it. If we stop eating junk food, we'll be healthier.

SpeakUp - Invermay Primary School Age 9: What do you like about your community? I like the people and the local produce at the Saturday markets and food that is there .People are extremely nice and always go out of there way to make people or themselves happy. I also like the trees and the parks because there are so many trees. If you had three wishes to make the community better what would they be? 1. Better emergency services in Launceston because there is only about 4 good hospitals and about 10 doctor clinics across Launceston. And people have to drive to the hospital and then wait to be treated as in severances. and it takes a long time to be treated at hospitals. 2. People shouldn't be outside after 11 o'clock at night. if people are out after 11 o'clock they suffer a penalty of at least 100 dollars depending on the time and how long they stay and watch. if they happen to be in a car, that is O.K. 3. No pollution to the area and no wood heaters in Launceston. people are getting asthma more often because of wood heaters and pollution. The smoke rises than falls and then creates fog and then people suffering from asthma breath it in. What would our community look like in 2035 if your wishes become reality? If we had those 3 wishes there would be more lives saved and less lives lost and better services and people would stop hurting themselves and start being safe at night because no one will be up and walking at night or if they do they will suffer a penalty unless otherwise signed by the Tasmanian government. there would be less cases of asthma and people could breath freely and do things that they wouldn't be able to do before with asthma.

The thing that I enjoy about my school is all the fun activities in daily Physical Ed, the Physical Ed program, and the fun equipment, and the best thing I enjoy in my community is all the friendly people in the neighbourhood; and of course the friendly neighbours !! If you had three wishes to make the community better what would they be? 1. My first wish would have to be to stop wood heaters ; so a lot less people are diagnosed with Asthma, then we can all be active without a worry. 2. The second wish is for every family to have a family pet; family pets bring everyone together and a such a experience to take care of. 3. And the last wish is to stop crashes; and crashes in fact, because I hate the feeling of knowing someone has lost or has a very injured loved one. What would our community look like in 2035 if your wishes become reality? Everyone will be safe, happy, and of course; no one would be bullying others. School would be safe, and you could enjoy your Lunch and Recess without a worry - or being scared of bullies, and I'd also know that they'd be a 50% less chance of crashes C:

Then that person could show the foreign person around. 3. Get people happy about living in Launceston by clearing land fill and cleaning rivers. Planting more trees would clean the air by turning the carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Hardly anyone would have their home burnt. All animals would have a loving home.
