Grade 11 student hosted a farewell for the grade 12 student on 21 February and this experience held in our school. There were different teams which had different and unique roles. I was in a team where we had to make games for the event and get information regarding the grade 12 students. I had to find childhood pictures of the grade 12 students. the name of the game we made was Guess who? so we would so childhood photos of grade 12 student and others had to guess whose picture it was. Some LOs which are covered during this experience are:
LO 1: Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth – I am good at researching so I had chosen this task. I found the childhood pictures from different websites like Instagram, Facebook, etc. We even had to contact the family members to get some of the student’s personal information
LO 4: Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences – the experience needs a lot of perseverance. As previously mentioned we had to contact the family members to get some of the student’s personal information as some of the grade 12 student were not active on social media so we had to ask their parents to give us the childhood photos. But some of the parents were delaying and due to some problems were not able to send the pictures so we needed to regularly remind them to send the photos.
LO 7: Recognize and consider the ethics of choices and actions – We showed the grade 12 students’ childhood pictures to others and some of the student might not feel comfortable with this and we also took some photos form their parents. So we took permission from their parent whether or not we could display the pictures and gave them conformation that we will not be using these pictures anywhere else except the farewell.
During this experience, I learned many things and one of those is time management. I had to deal with many time crunches as some of the parents had some problems sending us the images, so now on I make sure that I always do tasks ahead to time even if not needed. I even developed a learner profile, Inquirer, I did not have the parents’ phone number so I had to find it through other people like friends and schools administrations. overall the experience was a great success.
