FC: Rodney's Mix book
1: My name is Rodney Alam, i was born on the 25th of August, 2000 also i like to play games on the ipad.
2: I was born in Australia. Places I have visited are Lebanon and Queensland and my heritage is Lebanese.
3: My family consists of 5 people my parents, older sister and younger brother. I like talking to and hanging out with my friends Jordan and Charlie.
4: I believe in God. I value My family, friends and my life because i can't replace my family, friends or my life.
5: I like playing basketball and on the ipad because it is a good way to waste spare time.
6: One of the positive challenges i have faced is going to high school and dealing with it by working hard in my studies and just having fun. | Positive Challenge | Another positive challenge is when i finally allowed to play basketball this year and i had dealt with it by wearing bands around my knees just so i don't feel any pain.
7: One of the negative challenge i have faced is when my grandma had passed away and the way i dealt with it was praying for her and knowing she would be in a better place right now. | Negative Challenge | Another negative challenge is when i wasn't aloud to play sport for a year because I had a problem with my leg because I was growing too fast.
8: Coping strategies I would give to a year 6 student coming to high school are: > Ask your older sibling or relative that has been through high school to give you advise >Sleep early and wake up early to get to school on time so you don't get a late note >Behave in class and respect your teachers and friends >Concentrate well in class to do well in your assessments and assignments >Always follow the school rules so you don't get into trouble
9: 5 support services to seek help from are: > Parents- they had an experience of high school and could give you the advice you need. >Older siblings- They've gone through high school recently and could help you with assignments and give you great advice >School councilor- They can help you with things that happen to you at school. For example: being bullied. >Teachers- If you need help or explaining for school work/ for example: if you are being bullied they will help you fix the problem >Friends- They are going to high school too and you wouldn't be alone there
10: 2 short term goals before the end of term 1: > Get 2 homeroom awards > Make more friends | 1 Intermediate goal before end of semester 2: > Get a bronze award | 2 long term goals before the end of the year: > Get good grades in all my subjects > Get a principles award
11: One change I would expect to deal with in the next 5 years is working hard in all my subjects and getting good grades in order to make my parents and myself happy. I would like to achieve this goal to work towards studying for the HSC and getting in the rank 90 and up. Getting marks in that rank would lead me to having a great job and following my dreams like becoming a lawyer or businessman.
