CAS- Student Voice

this year my creative commitment is the student voice council. I am going to be taking a larger leadership role in the student voice council. Our group is sort of on hold right now. We seem to be having trouble getting things done, especially without the grade twelves who played a large role in the club. earlier this year we discussed strategies to get more student feedback on how student life is for them. we had initially planned to send out a survey, but it has not been done. we had also collaborated with mr. wray to decide on an advertising strategy that the student body would like more than the old one. we were told that the theme of the old one needed to be kept the same, but how it is used is up to us. we discussed a few different ways of going about this, but ended up decided on going with a similar design as before, only using mulgrave students. we thought that this way we would be able to show the many diverse accomplishments and passions of the student body. we left of with having two representatives from each grade find two student in their grade that would agree to be photographed and have their photos used in public advertisements, although i do not believe that anybody actually did this. once we begin to meet more steadily, this will be one of the projects on the top of our list.

cas commitments

right now I am falling a little behind in my cas commitments. I am going to start volunteering at a senior residential care facility next month. the student voice council is struggling a little with participation and commitment to following through with portfolios. I am planning to formulate a new plan for the rest of the year so that we are more effective. this will hopefully be put into action next month as finding time between school and work is proving to be hard.

CAS Commitment

So far this year I have changed my CAS commitments. I have been unable to make my creativity commitment because I have to work on the weekends which is when the conferences are. Instead I am going to use student voice council as my creativity commitment. We are attempting to continue to design a new sweater, it is probably going to be put in use mid year next year.

CAS- Volleyball

This year I play on the Jr. A Volleyball team. Since we have girls from grades 9-11, we play both Senior and Junior teams. I am really happy that I got onto this team because I am able to play with the same Grade 11 girls as I did last year, (there is no Senior A team), and as well get to know some of the girls in other grades. As the season comes to a close, I am happy with my improvement this year. Although there are many things that I could still work on, I have really improved my serve. I am now able to serve consistently and even aim it to a better spot on the court. I think that I have also improved on my hitting and passing. In comparison to last year, I think that I am much more confident and aggressive in practices and on the court during games. This Friday there is the Jr. ISAA Tournament which the Grade 11 can’t play in. I am looking forward to ending the season next week with the Senior tournament the following week and hopefully doing well.

CAS- Service

This year I have done quite a bit of service. First of all, my main commitment was MSAC. This was a really fun and I was able to learn a lot. A main part of what I did in MSAC took place in the first term. In this term I was Co-Chairing with another friend. We put on a bunch of events but the most notable was the Halloween haunted house and the 10 days of Christmas. There was a lot that I learnt in this council. I was able to learn how to lead younger kids and how to use everyone’s skills towards a common goal. I also learnt more about time management, organization and general leadership. This skills helped me to get into the executive part of SAC for next year, which I am really looking forward to participating in. Another service commitment that I had this year was the Student Ambassador group. This was basically a guinea pig year for this group. I was able to participate in planning and bringing ideas to life. One of my favourite events was organizing the Catching Fire movie showing. As well I also really enjoyed meeting the new students before school. (even though it involved coming early during the summer). Some of the minor service commitments that I was involved in were the Vow of Silence, Pakur Walk for India, scorekeeping, refereeing and helping set up art displays. I have done probably more service this year than grade 7 or 8 and it has been a great experience. It has been a lot of hard work, but has definitely paid off.

CAS Update- Open Art

Lately I have been going to open art. I usually go on tuesdays or thursdays at lunch. Before the break I went to open art on Fridays for two hours because my little sister finished at 4:30 on fridays. This was fun because I was with my sister who is really good in art. She was able to help me with current art projects that I was working on and as well side projects. I use open art to work on art project that I am behind on in class or to start new ones. I am planning to continue going to open art, especially because I finish visual arts soon.
