Service Reflection

Mandarin Buddy was one of my services at school in grade 10. I was helping a grade seven student, who takes Mandarin course at school. We met each other every Friday from 1:30 to 2:00.As a student from Mandarin HL, I helped him with his everyday homework and prepared for his next lesson. My first task was help him prepare for his presentation. I corrected his pronunciation and grammar during our meeting.

Welcome World!

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. — Mohandas Gandhi

Not everyone can be Gandhi, but each of us has the power to make sure our own lives count – and it’s those millions of lives that will ultimately build a better world. – Jeffrey Skoll

Welcome to the Mulgrave’s Personal Learning Network (PLN) and the Mulgrave Learning eFolio. All Upper School students from Grades 7-12 are required to develop a Learning eFolio (short for ePortfolio or Electronic Portfolio) blog, an experiential and holistic programme which develops ‘the whole’ student by encouraging engagement in ‘the whole’ world of education within and beyond the classroom. It puts into practice our commitment to nurturing diverse, well-rounded, self-reflective, and compassionate global citizens of the 21st century who exemplify the qualities of the IB Learner Profile and seek to make our world a better place. The eFolio also serves as a flexible and accessible avenue to showcase learning, self-growth and personal best through new digital mediums. The development, scope and expectations are facilitated within divisional Advisory Programmes.

For more information on how to develop up your Learning eFolio and guidance on the G7-10 MY-CAS and G11-12 DP-CAS components, please consult the Learning eFolio overview and guides listed below from TheMulgraveCitizen.

  1. MY eFolio Guide (includes G7-10 MY-CAS)
  2. DP eFolio Guide (includes G11-12 DP-CAS)

For more information and support, speak to your Advisor and the Head of Student Life. If you are looking for student life opportunities to get engaged, please check out social good postings at TheMulgraveCitizen, Passport2#SocialGood and on Twitter via @MulgraveCitizen. Visit the Edublog User Guide for help developing your blog.

That’s enough to get you going. The eFolio should be a fun, enriching and rewarding way to explore, find or create your place in the world. Go play!
