Hi peers of 5/6C!
I’ve been at MPPS since prep and have been SRC once in grade 2 and green team once in year 5.
I have my sister Amira and my twin brothers Ram and Ishwar.
Here are some reasons why I want to be your 2018 SRC rep.
One thing that I’m proud of and that has made me a better person and have been doing my fundraisers for AMF (Against malaria foundation) and the Royal Children’s Hospital. Altogether I’ve raised about 1000 dollars. Those things made me think more about other people and their situations in life. I love helping and setting up fundraisers with other people and I know I’m helping others which makes me even more happy.
SRC reps need to show the school values – ROCC.
R – I’ve shown respect to other people by listening to them and giving input to their ideas and letting them speak while showing attentive listening.
O – I show optimism by always trying my best and putting in 110% into it. Even when I’m down I still try my very best.
C – I show collaboration by being open to new people and different learning areas.
C – I show care to others by helping and being supportive.
I show ROCC values at school, with friends, at my tennis club and as a Cub Scout sixer who leads a group.
I’m motivated, reliable and driven as a student. Teachers have always asked me to do jobs and help them out, lending a hand to others. An example was when the 3/4 teachers asked me to lead an assembly and ask everyone questions.
I like listening to other people’s interests, and this will be a great chance to listen to your ideas and what topics for fundraisers you think are important. Some of my ideas are helping kids in poverty and writing letters to kid in hospitals to cheer them up. I also like the organisation Seva which helps kids who are blind or who have problems with sight. 90% of those kids are in developing countries.
I’m always motivated to keep going and get the job done. My motivation is to know that I’m helping out and that I’m part of something. At Cub Scouts I needed to be a fair listener, it was a big thing and to get everyone’s ideas, work as a team and remain fair. For example we once did a handy craft activity and I made sure that everyone had their own individual job, like painting or screwing.
When running clubs I’ll be responsible, respectful and always be there on time. It is important to act mature and be a good role model to all the younger students. They copy what we do and I want to role model positive behaviour. I’m never afraid to speak up and share my ideas with the group. I will always put SRC meeting first, before socialising and will be consistent when coming.
And last but not least you need to be able to do public speaking, I feel as though I am confident with public speaking. For example in debates last year I loved it and it involved a lot of speaking – I ended up doing 5 debates instead of 2! Although, I think SRC will help me develop my public speaking skills more, helping me to slow down and be more confident.
I hope you see why I’d make a good SRC rep J
