Fountainhead school invited other government schoolâ€™s children in our school each Saturday and Sunday for continuous 3 weekends to let them learn something from us. They were aged between 10 years â€“ 17 years. We had to choose an activity which was to be taught to the government children.
L2: Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process
All the students who were to be taught were unprivileged and from a government school. It was very fun to teach them, but there were moments when they did not listen to us and did whatever they wanted to do, sometimes this got frustrating but I did not give up and continued to do my work. We all had to be nice and kind even if they did not respect us.
L5: Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
Working in a team always helps one the most. Having a team is very supportive. If I wouldnâ€™t have this team while the sessions, there could have been chances where my mind would probably blow off. The team was the one that helped me to plan for the sessions. As there were a lot of kids, they had many questions about the sport frisbee, over here having a team allowed us having more members which helped clear kids doubts quickly. There were some instances when I went to the washroom or to drink water, at this point someone else would come to my place for the kids. This made the work very easy and smooth.
L4: Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
The sessions were every Saturday and Sunday for 3 weekends. It was compulsory to attend six of them but I attended 5 of them. It was super fun. Every Saturday there were different people from different schools and seeing them happy while playing made me smile. 3 Saturdays and spending in school for 3 hours in heavy sunlight is a lot of work. Saturday and Sunday is the day when the school is off, so usually, I study at whatever time I wanted to but because of the service sessions I had to manage my time to show my commitment towards it.
