Hello, and welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy....Blah, blah, blah. Let's get down to who, what, when where, why, and how we made this site. Who? Well, we made this website for you! We want the world to get to know more about Jeju island, the southernmost point of South Korea. What? We are giving this information in the form of our website, created by our sixth-grade class. When? Hmmm, we could answer this in many ways. Right now, of course, you are reading it. But, to give a better answer, we made this site for the Cyber-Fair Website contest (deadline: March 16, 2013). We started our work all the way back in September 2012. Where? Like we said, this website is about Jeju island. Jeju is a volcanic island dominated by Mt. Halla (한라산). Here are many beautiful beaches, awesome sunsets, and pristine views. Why? Again, we created this for the CyberFair website contest 2013. We entered Category Five: Local Attractions (Natural and Man Made) because our beautiful island has lots of both. This year's theme is "Explore and Unite." We hope you enjoy EXPLORING Jeju-do and that it will help UNITE us as people who care about the world. How? We made our site using www.weebly.com, an easy-to-use program that helps you piece together a sharp-looking webpage (at least, we think so and hope you agree).
We dedicate this to everyone who loves and enjoys life, particularly Jenny Rie Vanderlinden. Who's Jenny, you might be asking yourself? Jenny is an inspirational lady who, unfortunately, won't be able to visit Jeju. You see, Jenny has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Just like we would be, she was scared. She has four children, she has friends, she hasn't lived out her full life yet. But Jenny doesn't let this get her down. Instead, she lives her days to the fullest. Jenny is traveling and doing as many sporty, fun, and thrilling activities as she can. She says "I'd rather be happy than sad" and ask that others share their life-embracing activities with her. All of this has attracted the attention of a film maker, Blake Babbitt. To learn more about this upcoming film see http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/i-heart-jenny. Jenny has inspired our class, and we hope you as well. We want everybody to be better informed about cancer and to take better care of themselves http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/12/health/ovarian-cancer-study-finds-widespread-flaws-in-treatment.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
