A Letter for Lela (Year 2 Student)
Dear Mr Abbott,
I was reading the National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair. It says, "For those who come across the seas we have boundless plains to share". I have heard that you have sent boats away from Australia and people have drowned and died. Some of them were children like me. I think you should stop sending boats away and let them come to Australia. I feel sad about this.
In my school we have 48 different nationalities.
