Interview with Mr O Jnr 2
This is the second in a series of interviews with the new arrivals. For no reason other than Mr O’s brain is taking a well-earned break after so much studying, we have started with the youngest we are working up the line.
Welcome to Mr O Jnr 2!
Did you enjoy the plane flight to Australia?
No, I did not, because I was sick in the plane and going to the toilet every minute! It was scary when the plane was landing. I thought the plane was going up, I did not know the plane was landing. I thought we were going to go on one plane to Australia, but it was two planes! The plane was too big, I thought there would be nothing much inside, but there were many things to play with: there was a TV to play games and we could watch movies.
What was the biggest surprise for you when you arrived?
The cold! It was freezing and we had no jackets on. It was a surprise when Mummy gave us jackets because how did she know that was our size?
What do you miss most from Nigeria that we do not have here in Australia?
I miss my Mum and my friends at home. I miss all the food in Nigeria that we don’t have here, but I am eating everything in Autralia!
What do you like the most about Australia so far?
I like riding a bike, we have classes at school and that is why I am saving my money to buy a bike. I like that the light stays on in Australia.
Have you learnt things at school that you had never heard of before?
I have learnt how to play bat tennis. I knew how to play ping pong before. I have learnt more English.
What is your favourite food in Nigeria?
Noodles and fried egg is my favourite and Amala ati gbegiri pelu ewedu which is silver beet, pounded yam and meat with a little bit of red pepper stew.
What is your favourite food in Australia?
I like sausages and meat pies.
What is your least favourite food in Australia?
I can’t think of anything yet that I really do not like, but I haven’t tried everything!
What do you like best about your new school?
Learning to ride a bike at school and we rode a bike for a test and we are going to get a certificate.
Who did you like the best on X-Factor?
Are you looking forward to Grade 6?
To be the head of the school! We will be the seniors of the school.
What is you favourite thing to do?
I would like to ride the bike every day for some exercise! In Nigeria my favourite thing to do was to go to Arabic school because it was more education and I would know how to speak Arabic if I went to other countries.
