Personal Essay: The Yemin Order Project
I am extremely happy at school which has helped and encouraged me to develop all
my skills both educational and social. I was also part of the Yemin Orde project
from which I benefitted enormously. Therefore as the school has done so much for
me I would like and want to return something positive back into the school, and
I feel that this is an excellent opportunity for me to achieve my goal.
– Leadership – I teach a large class of children at Cheder including me
planning work for them. – Ability to work in a team – I exhibited this skill on
the Duke Of Edinburgh expedition – Ability to work as an individual – I am able
to use my initiative which can be seen when I designed a computer presentation
for the prospective Parents Evening this school year. – Ability to grasp a
situation and respond appropriately – I exhibited this skill during my time in
Yemin Orde when a friend of mine had an asthma attack and I individually aided
him while going to find help.
I am decisive yet open minded and I am able to listen attentively. I have the
ability to reach sound judgements without accepting unquestionably and can
report my decision in a fair and balanced way. I believe that I can work well
with authority in a variety of situations and I can realise where the ultimate
authority lays. I believe that the position of Student Officer is not so much
one of authority but of responsibility.
