Identify A Leader

Barack Obama

He is the first black president in America.

In his campaign for Senate, one of his signature issues was opposition to the war in Iraq, at a time when few politicians were willing to speak against it.

He was very inspirational and thus many voted for him.

That is the reason why I admire him.

Personal Reflections (Orientation Camp)^-^

What are the three main points (or more) that you had learnt from all the activities?
  1. Teamwork is very important
  2. If we work together, we can achieve more than if we were to work alone
  3. To participate is very important
How can these pointers be of help to you?

  • These pointers have taught me the importance of teamwork and made me realise how important it is for everyone in a team to participate.

If you had another chance to try all the activities, which one will you choose? Why?
  • I would choose Rock Climbing as you have to trust that your friend will catch/help to support you if you slip and fall. This activity helps build trust between you and your friends.
If there was one thing you would like to change about yourself, what would that be?

  • I would like to not be so shy and participate more.

Amazing Race Personal Reflection^-^

  • What do you understand about the school value "Expanding Our Learning Networks"?
To me, it means to learn outside of the classroom.
  • Why is this value important and how will it help you in your learning experience in SST?
It is important to expand our learning networks as this will allow us to gain more knowledge and pick up important life skills.

Reflection on The Bridge Building Activity^-^

It was not very difficult to work with my group as we had already "broken the ice" during the ice breaking activities.

I managed to overcome my "shyness" when I realized that everyone in the group must also be feeling the same way as all of us were new to the school.

I contributed to the group by providing suggestions and ideas on how we can improve the design of the bridge.

It is important that we participate so that we can improve our social skills and contribute to our group.

I learnt that listening to others in a group when they are talking is very important and I can a can apply this in class whenever I am working in a group.

So this is most likely the route I will be using to get to SST

Google Maps is quite useful as it shows you the different routes you can use to get to where you want to go and an estimated amount of time it will take you to get to the place thus allowing you to decide at what time you should get up from bed and how long you can take in the shower and so on. Not sure about the reliable part yet though.

Creating this blog was...

I had created a blog before so it was nothing new but it was still fun.^-^

We could blog about what we learnt that day at sch, everyday. By explaining about what we had learnt that day, we show that we actually understood the day's lessons and if we do not understand something about a lesson, we can also post the question on our blog.
