Personal Reflection of 6th January 2010
Today, we went around Clementi neighborhood. We explored it an learnt new things! I found that we can learn things even outside of school. I guess that is the meaning of “Expanding Our Learning Networks” which is one of the school values.
I find that it is very important as we get to communicate with others outside the school and learn out of the textbook.

The school value “Forging Excellence” is for us to strive to be the best as can be and always go beyond our limits. We can never give up trying. As the orientation theme goes, “building bridges beyond boundaries”.
I’ve learnt to persevere even though things may seem bad. We have to keep trying to pull through. I also have a lot of friends who can help me out.
We have to be open-minded and be able to accept mistakes and learn from them. We must also cultivate self-initiative and have empowerment.We must also try to think out of the box. We must go beyond our comfort zone.
We can all post problems, share opinions on the class blog for everyone in class to see.
Personal Reflection 4th January 2010
Today’s experience of meeting new friends was rather an enjoyable one. I met different people with different ideas. Having said that, it can be quite difficult to work with new people. Many want to use their own ideas. That is why we have to be open-minded and try to meet a common ground.
In terms of shyness, I would say that I am a very sociable person. So, it does not bother me much.
As an “Architect”, I contributed some ideas on making the bridge as good-looking and safe and functional as possible.
It is very important to participate as it helps one make new friends and also know new ideas so that one can apply them in life. It also strengthens friendship and teamwork.
I have learnt a lot from today’s activity. It is better to have friends who can help you rather than to do things alone. Two heads are better than one!
