Pledge

My pledge on how to improve on myself.

I will be more concerned and caring for the people around me. They care a lot for me and would want to care for them too, so that they would be happy, and I can feel a sense of achievement. I could help them in times of need. I need to be more updated about the community and have to try to help them as much as possible.

Journal Writing for 1 March 2011 [Beauty Pressure]

1. What is the message underlying this video and what are your thoughts about it?
The message underlying this video is to prevent young girls from thinking that they must do weird and natural things like having plastic surgery to be beautiful and they want young girls' parents to talk to them about not having to have to go through this to be beautiful. My thoughts are that this video is helping the parents to help their children who are girls.
2. How could the beauty industry manipulate the way females think about themselves?
They could ask models who have a better figure and that looks better to advertise their products so that when the girls see the advertisements, they would want to be like the models and buy their products or go for plastic surgery.
3. What could society do to encourage healthier self image among young ladies?
They could encourage them to eat healthier to look better rather than do those weight loss programs and go for exercises more regularly. They could also organise talks about how plastic surgery and some products are not very good.

Day 2: End-of-Day Reflection

Today we did the "Tower above the rest" activity which is a tower making challenge. Our class had 4 groups and we made our tower with the materials provided. One of the towers won and it represented our class the inter-class competition. It did not win but I still felt happy as we had fun. We also had Mac Attack 2 which we learnt how to use Keynote on our MacBooks. We made slideshows of our experience on the tower making challenge. From today's activities I made new friends and learnt new skills that can be used for our education. When doing groupwork, we should value others' opinions and contribute our own. We should not look down on others' opinion. There are differences in our opinions because we think of different outcomes. I am happy to be a member in the class because I have great classmates :D

Day 2: Tower Building

Day 1 Mac Attack 1 - Activity 4: End-of-Day Reflection

We had some ice-breakers, SST Sparks, Mac Attack and the orientation camp briefing.
I learnt that my form teachers are Mdm Azizah and Ms Hu Juan, the DSLs are Hardy, Rayner, Davina & Cherin. And my house colour is Black :)
I chose to come to SST because it is different from other schools and the teachers are friendly :D

Wishes on the Wall



Wall wisher is good as we can pen down suggestions on the wall whenever we want. We can get other people's opinions. It is a very easy way to communicate. However, wall wisher has character limitations so we cannot type much. We cannot add our own backgrounds too. We can use wall wisher for discussing about school and CCA topics.

Activity 2: (b)


View Korea Trip in a larger map

Activity 2: (a)

1. This is the route from my house to  SST using public transport (my family doesn't have a car)

View Larger Map

2. Apart from the suggested routes, Google Maps helps me plan my journey to school by giving me the time taken to get to school so I can reach there in time.
3. The information that Google Maps provide are quite accurate and reliable but we cannot trust it 100% become sometimes it my not calculate the distance correctly.

Activity 1: (b)

There is not much to say about creating a blog as I have blogged before, but overall I find blogging fun and useful in some ways :) I like designing my own blog to let the whole world see. :D
I feel that blogging is very useful to learning and we should blog more often to express our feelings :D

Activity 1: (a)


I felt quite shocked and happy because I was only on the waiting list. So I was elated when I found out. Hehe :DDD
