This experience was conducted in our school. Some students of government school were called to do different activities they were interested in. Students from my school choose different activities they would like to teach to the underprivileged students.Â I choose to teach cooking to the underprivileged students. There were 6 sessions held in our school and we taught them how to cook a different item in each session. Once we taught how to make Frankie, on other session we made sandwiches, likewise we many made different snacks in different sessions. We also interacted with them during the session.
LO 1 -Â Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth
I am good at cooking so it helped me a lot and I am not a good communicator which was my drawback. Knowing my strength and weakness is important as it would help me know the area I need to improve in. If I would have improved my communication skill, it would have helped in interacting with the students well.
LO 4 -Â Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
We had to come to school for 6 sessions on every Saturdays and Sundays. I had to be committed to the session. I had to persevere to complete the activity. I had to attend each and every session. I am not a committed person so it was difficult for me to complete this experience but persevering is very important as it helped me to stay on track and complete this experience.
LO 5 -Â Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
Working with different people is not very difficult for me as I collaborate with most of the people easily. So this experience was not too difficult for me to achieve. It is important to work collaboratively as it makes the task easier for people to complete. In this activity, we had to work as a team as there were many students we had to teach and it would create a hodgepodge if we did not work collaboratively.
LO 6 -Â Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance
The issue we where catering was reducing inequality. It is an important issue as nowadays there is a lot of inequality in society around us. Knowing global issues help in growing me personally, as I can only help in achieving them if I know them. It makes me feel great knowing that I have contributed to reducing inequality.
Some of the learner profiles I developed was communicator, caring and responsible. This activity also benefitted others as the students learned to make different food items. I learned to communicate with new people. During this activity, I gained a sense of achievement.Â I think it was a success as some of the studentsÂ even thanked me after the session. Overall I had a great experience.
