The reason I would like to be a night zookeeper is because you get to look after animals plus you get to look after them in the dark and I love it when it is pitch black. Another reason I would like to be a night zookeeper is because many of the animals are nocturnal. This means they are more active at night so I get to watch them hunt and play. I just hope I’m not on the menu! One of the main creatures I would like to get to know are the bats. As long as they aren’t vampire bats.

# Austrailian Federal parliament representation

**House of representatives**

**Distribution by state/territory**.

over the past few days we have been doing activity’s based on direct and indirect representation in Australia politics and about the three levels of governments. The three levels of government are Federal, State and local! Federal takes care of national parks and national issues! state care of transport and Local takes care of Local parks and Local libraries and so on.

After that we went into groups of 5 and had to choose a place to choose a place to eat and agree on it. Then the whole class got together to find out what place we would like to go on an excursion! It took us about 15 mins but then we agreed on going around the world, If the class takes 15 mins to decide on something, how long does it take for the government to decide on something?

Then the next task was to into a group of three and had to fill out a sheet and choose a state! Our group chose W.A. and had to find out the number of members from each houses of our state, and the number of electors from each state! After we put all of our note taking in these two charts one up the top that is the house of representations. And the one below is the house of senate.
