DP-CAS Complete Stamp 2015

Green Team

Our meeting today with Green Team, Under the Sea, and Art club! Hoping to collab on a group project this year.

Final Reflection

Because I’ve already written about all of my goals and how I feel about them for this year, I”ll now write a bit about my CAS commitments and highlights and struggles of my year, plus a couple of plans for the summer.

My commitments this year were soccer, yoga, green team, yearbook, personal project, choir, Duke of Edinburgh, Jolee’s swim meet, Benny’s flashmob, and volunteering at the West Van Community Centre. Even though I was kept very busy for most of the year, these were commitments I enjoyed doing, and I worked hard to organize my time and make sure I was fully committed to at of them. My favourite commitment, the WVCC, was fun because I got to work with kids and learn more about what it means to be a volunteer. Duke of Edinburgh was also a great experience, as I’ve now received my Silver pin as well as my Bronze. I’ll be going for my Gold in grade 11.

The main highlight of my year was Personal Project. Not only did I manage to choose a topic that I’m really interested in, I got to explore it thoroughly and expand on my knowledge as well. I wish we got to do it again, but I think I might do it just for fun in the future anyways. Another highlight was the Banff trip, because we learned so much and grew together as a choir and individually. I would love to continue choir next year and hopefully go on another trip like Banff. A last highlight for grade 10 was any information we got about university. Despite some parents thinking it’s too early to begin thinking about it, I thought it was cool that we got to learn about university experiences this early.

One struggle I overcame this year was our INPs, in which I chose to study The Help. I decided to focus on character relationships within the book, and it took me awhile to think of a project that would have enough depth to let my audience understand the plot but not have to spend ten minutes explaining it first. This was hard for me as I just wanted to start creating something, but I had to slow down and think about what I was going to make. Another struggle was studying for exams, mainly because we had two sets of them and there was so much information to cover. I’m still not done with Math, English and Science, as our provincials are coming up too. I just hope that they aren’t quite as difficult as our mocks.

Although I’m not taking any courses over the summer, (I’m only doing one science) I am going to focus on universities and what I would be interested in. This means I’ll be taking some personality and university fit tests, researching majors, and probably just talking to people that have connections with universities. I will probably go into liberal arts, and luckily I have several connections in the film industry and the art industry that I may talk to and get information from. Other than that, I’ll be doing my English HL summer reading, (which I’ve already started) and waiting for grade 11 to begin!

Yearbook Update

So far yearbook is going well- I’ve been taking pictures regularly throughout the year. My worry is that we won’t have enough art as it is only changed up every couple of weeks, and some things don’t have names on them. If they don’t have names I can’t use them because we need to give credit in the yearbook. I’ll be taking in my camera tomorrow to take pictures of the recent art- that way I’ll get even closer to the amount we need! I need to remember to bring in my camera more often too, just to have that extra time to take pictures and do my job.

End of Year Reflection

For this end of year reflection, I’m going to do a Q&A with myself.

 

What is one thing I discovered about myself?

I think the main thing I discovered about myself this year was how much I really care about University. I was interested in it before, but this year with all the talk about it I realized I’m really interested in my University experience. That’s actually part of the reason I did Duke of Edinburgh this year, as well as so many extra minor commitments. I’ll keep that in mind for next year too, when my marks and extracurricular activities will be more transferable to University.

If I could go back to September, what advice would I give myself knowing what I know now?

This question is a funny one because it’s the only one I immediately thought of an answer for. In this case, I would definitely tell myself to remember to spend lots of time on the important assignments this year! For some of the major assignments, I didn’t think that I would need a lot of time to complete them. For instance, I thought this one assignment would be a simple essay and citations that I could finish in two hours. I was completely wrong! I actually needed a couple of weeks to fully understand and develop my essay.

What is one memorable experience?

One of my main memorable experiences this year was going to Los Angeles during Spring Break with my family. This was memorable for me because I went with my cousin Taylor, who I’m very close with, and because I was so excited to see all of the
sights in Hollywood! The trip was really special for me, especially because of things we did like going to the Walk of Fame, Warner Bros. Studios, and Santa Monica Pier. It was made even more special because I got to go with my family!

What is one thing I would take back if I could?

If I could take one thing back this year, it would be delaying my Personal Project. I was going to use the summer for my project, but I ended up not applying which might have been a mistake. My project will probably either be about photography or my family history, so using the summer could have been an asset. I don’t think it will affect my Personal Project a huge amount, but it would’ve been nice to at least apply.

Who have I enjoyed/valued/appreciated most this year and why?

This year I’ve most appreciated Ms. McTavish. She was my science teacher and leader of Duke of Edinburgh, and I really appreciated how much she helped me in both areas. This year I really understood science better, as well as understanding how much work she really put into our DOE trip. Because of this, I think the person I most valued this year was her.

What piece of work was I most proud of this year?

This year I was most proud of my performance in Instrumental. At the beginning of the year, I hadn’t played percussion at all. Now I can safely say that I know how to play! The actual piece of work I am most proud of was my work on a piece called, ‘Apollo 11’, in which I had a snare drum solo. It took a lot of practice, but the performance went really well and certainly better than I expected!

Overall, I learned a lot in my grade nine year.

A Day In the Life

These are the two pictures I won A Day in the Life for.

Minor Commitment Reflection

This year, one of my main minor commitments was A Day in the Life at my school. This is basically a day when lots of people come to school with a camera, and from 12am that day to 12pm we are allowed to take pictures of our school. The goal is to show what a ‘day in the life’ of our school is like. The pictures are supposed to take are supposed to be more focused on the school and less posed, but people submit an array of different types of pictures. After we have taken our pictures, we are allowed to edit them in minor ways and submit five of them to a shared drive. A little while later, judges from the school pick winners in several categories. This year, two of my photos won in two different categories! One in Most Creative and one in Honourable Mention. I was really proud of this because photography is something I enjoy and it made my happy to win something for that.
