Which place in Fremantle is the most important?

Jacob – Roads are important so cars and buses and cars can get along. I use the roads when I am going to the shops, when I am going to school and when I am coming home.

Klaudia – Shops are important because if you didn’t have shops you couldn’t get food and you would die. You need shops in case people are scared of the dark and sometimes you are without a teddy and you need to buy one.

Fin- My home is important to me because if I didn’t have one I wouldn’t know where to sleep or get the things I need. My home is special to Simon cos he lives with me.

Anneke- a special place is at school cos then you can learn lots of things like if you didn’t know how to read. It’s a special place to me.

Bryn – The train station is important because you may want to get from Fremantle to Perth. I haven’t used it because we usually take a care or if we are going somewhere far way we take a plane.
