This year started off with a digital literacy programme. In this programme we have to make a poster informing people about technology. I know this year is going to be a lot tougher than grade 8, mainly because of exams, and I need to be able to take responsibility for getting all my work done and handing it in on time.
This year for grade 9 camp we are going kayaking up the Indian Arm. I am very excited to go on this trip because last year we did almost the same thing for my elective Summit 1. A goal for camp would be to meet some new people. There are a few new students coming in my camp group so I plan to get to know them better. Hopefully we can be great friends for the rest of the year and through the years ahead of us.
This year has been thoroughly enjoyable. I really enjoyed being involved in Jazz Choir, Choir, and many other service commitments. A memorable part of being in Jazz Choir and Choir was travelling to Whistler. It was very fun competing against the other singers coming from different parts of BC. Another part that I had fun participating in would be the mass choir. It was very cool to sing with the other schools, we sounded really good. The electives I chose were great because it got me exposed to many other parts of life. Summit 1 has been a great elective in going and exploring the outdoors and participating in the activities that I normally wouldn’t do (mountain biking, rock climbing). Also, theatre sports and improv was a really fun elective. I learnt how to think on the spot and under pressure. I have also made many new friendships through this elective, these friendships are some that I plan on keeping. Some of the co-curricular activities I participated in are sports such as volleyball and basketball. I enjoy volleyball but I love basketball. I was a part of the grade 8/9 A team which was a big accomplishment for me to get on. Now I am still currently on the grade 7/8 club Mustangs team. I feel that I have improved greatly over this year. This opportunity has been great and I have had so much fun with all the girls on the team. Overall, this year has been very enjoyable for me and I am very excited for next year.
