Personal Essay: the Yemin Order Project
I am extremely happy at school which has helped and encouraged me to develop all my skills both educational and social. I was also part of the Yemin Orde project from which I benefitted enormously. Therefore as the school has done so much for me I would like and want to return something positive back into the school, and
I feel that this is an excellent opportunity for me to achieve my goal.
- Leadership - I teach a large class of children at Cheder including me planning work for them. - Ability to work in a team - I exhibited this skill on the Duke Of Edinburgh expedition - Ability to work as an individual - I am able to use my initiative which can be seen when I designed a computer presentation for the prospective Parents Evening this school year. - Ability to grasp a situation and respond appropriately - I exhibited this skill during my time in
Yemin Orde when a friend of mine had an asthma attack and I individually aided him while going to find help.
I am decisive yet open minded and I am able to listen attentively. I have the ability to reach sound judgements without accepting unquestionably and can report my decision in a fair and balanced way. I believe that I can work well with authority in a variety of situations and I can realise where the ultimate authority lays. I believe that the position of Student Officer is not so much one of authority but of responsibility.
