BC: Redwood Elementary School 2011-2012
FC: ALL ABOUT ME
1: My name is Joey Abdou and I was born on the 10th of August 2000 in Bankstown Hospital. | I was born in Australia but I have visited places such as Lebanon, Melbourne and Brisbane
3: I am in a family of 6 people, 1 mother, 1 father and 3 brothers. In our family we help each other day in day out. Sometimes with brothers we can and cannot get along. My family is full of respect, love, supportive and trust. We support each other no matter what.
4: RUGBY LEAGUE (INTERESTS) | My favourite interest out of all time is playing Rugby League with friends and family. Watching many clips of NRL highlights inspires me to go out there and play my best. In spare times at home I go to the backyard and kick the ball around. Also when stressed out I would ask some mates for a game of footy.
6: LEBANESE DRUM (INTEREST) | Another interest of mine is playing the Lebanese Drum. Seeing many people play it inspired me to. I play the Lebanese Drum at parties at the reception my parents own. Getting paid for playing is another achievable thing.
9: I have many many friends. Ones that help and ones that care. When stressed these friends are always there to help and stay by my side. Thank God for sending such good friends like these. I talk to these people because I have trust in them. There respect in them shows as .
10: RELIGION | I believe in our savior Jesus Christ the one who sacrificed his life for us. I value in people respect, love, care and trust.
12: POSITIVE CHALLENGE | One of a positive challenge is moving up to high school. Moving up to high school was a really fun thing to do, meeting new friends, new areas but most of all learning more
14: POSITIVE CHALLENGE | Another positive challenge in my life was making the school basketball team. Not knowing when try outs but still achieving the goal to make it to the team.
15: NEGATIVE CHALLENGE | I lost my grandfather when I was at a young age. We were all frustrated but we could not do any thing. I kept him in my prayers and moved on in life.
16: COPING STRATAGIES | 1- Bring your diary to school everyday and use it. Your diary will help you with school and keeping up with work 2- You have to be organised. You should have your books in your locker for the ones you need for the day. Hold your period 1 and 2 books in your bag for the morning then 3 and 4 , you collect before you go to recess then 5 before you go to lunch.
18: 3- If you have a problem. If you have a problem with someone speak to the person or speak to close friends about it and try and get it sorted 4- If stuck in homework. If you don't understand any thing in homework speak to a friend about it or most importantly to your teacher 5- If getting bullied. If your getting bullied ignore the bully because no one is perfect.
20: 2 SHORT TERM GOALS | 1- Getting a good impression on my teacher 2- Doing my best in the basketball team
21: 1 INTERMEDIATE GOAL | 1- Making the school Rugby League team.
22: 2 LONG TERM GOALS | 1- Getting a great mark in all areas 2- Not getting into any bad trouble
23: In the next 5 years of my life alot of things are going to change. I am going to have to be more organised in everything. I am going to have to study more and focus on school life more. More subjects are gong to be taught in the next 5 years and I have to get ready for them. Choosing electives for school is going to be another change. Relationships in the next 5 years might occur but I can not bring them into school life. Puberty will start developing an I will develop into a young adult. Then comes the most important thing of my life, the HSC. 3 hours doing the HSC then that will depend on my later life.
