Term 1 G12 Jazz Band

As for my creativities, I joined the Jazz Band again as the first tenor.

LO2- Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process

The new piece played in the jazz band was quite hard compared to the pieces in the year before. I developed my skills in jazz playing and score reading.

LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognise the benefits of working collaboratively

Working with new members in the Jazz band also has proven to be a challenge. As members have left and new members have joined, we now have a disproportionate group of clarinets and flutes, usually not present in Jazz bands. This means that I have to accommodate with the new players.

Project Week Post-reflection

Project week was something that I felt fulfilled all 7 learning outcomes in CAS.

LO1-Identify their own strengths and develop areas for growth.

I identified many of my strengths and weaknesses living in the jungle for a week. My strength lies in organizing, working, and collaboration while my weaknesses lies in communication, especially with people who don’t understand my language.

LO2- Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process.

Going outside of the country for a whole week without supervision was a huge challenge. The challenges of costs in unexpected areas, unexpected events, and even the procedures to take care of oneself were undertaken. Immersing myself in the jungle with no technology and no electricity was another challenge.

LO3-Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience

The planning for project week lasted over months. The details where I discussed my development was written in another blogpost.

LO4-Show commitment and perseverance in CAS experiences. Students can articulate the stages from conceiving an idea to executing a plan for a CAS experience or series of CAS experiences.

I showed commitment by carrying out the plan we had. Actually doing physical labor in the hot sun was very tiring and pushed me to my physical limits. Living without any electricity and access to the outer world pushed me out of my comfort zone.

LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognise the benefits of working collaboratively

Obviously, the project week was a team effort. Without the help of my teammates, the trip wouldn’t be as successful. I also contributed my part in the group, communicating with organizations and planning for activities.

LO6-Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance

The issues we dealt with in deforestation of Borneo rainforest is a significant issue in our world. We engaged with this issue by learning about the movements done to help combat this.
