The three highlights for me during the past two weeks were the camp, the tower building challenge and meeting our new teachers. My lowest moments were when i first discovered that me and my friends from primary school were going to different classes, going into the class without knowing anyone at first and not doing the rock climbing obstacle during the camp. The greatest lessons during the past two weeks were learning about how to work as a team during the camp, tower building challenge and learning about SA, Situational Awareness. I learnt about myself that I am daring during the high elements and can make friends easily during the past two weeks. I am looking towards more group activities and more stuff to learn for 2011.

Communication is important as it is used for people to understand what you are trying to tell them example instructions, orders, requests or what you are feeling. My favourite form of conversation is verbal conversation as it is the easiest to express and the easiest for other people to understand. I would choose the form of communication by what form of conversation the other party is using. Difficulties that i mostly face in conversations is that when using verbal conversations, some people speak too fast or too soft, so i am not always able to understand them.

I was very much looking forward to experience SST, but today what I experienced exceeded my expectations. Today, the many activities with my new peers and the PSLs helped break the ice between us. In addition to the games, i experienced a new and exciting way of learning. Today we were thought about the three Rs: Roles,Rights and Responsibilities. Although they are but three simple words, each of them carries a deep meaning. I chose SST for its interesting curriculum and its different learning approach. I aspire to excel in my studies in SST and build good long term relationships with friends and teachers. Today's activities allowed me to interact with my peers and participate actively in my role as a team player.
