FC: CHANGES AND CHALLENGES BY: CHRISTOPHER AZZI
1: My name is Christopher Azzi and I attend St Charbels College,I am currently completing my first year of high school.I was born on the 26th of September in 1999 in Bankstown Hospital. Since I was a child I have always been active. I love to play sports. I do not like being inside because i get bored really easily.
2: I was born in Australia.I have never visited any place outside of Australia because I get dizzy,but I have visited Queensland, Terrigal,Nelson Bay and Forster.I am an Australian born Lebanese ,my father was born in Lebanon and my mother was born here in Australia my grandmother was born in Lebanon and she stayed there all her life until there was a war in 1975 her and her children moved to Australia, after that my parents got married and my dad bought a shop he still owns it now.
3: I have one brother, Jamie and one sister, Daniella they are trustworthy and annoying.When I have a problem I speak to my parents because they listen to me and help me through it . I have many friends and they all are nice and caring
4: I beleive in God because he sent his only son down to die on the cross . Jesus was sent down to earth to save us. He wore a crown of thorns ,carried the cross,and died on that cross by being nailed to the cross.
5: I love to play sport because it keeps me active and it is fun one of my favourite sports is soccer, because it is a team sport and helps me socialize.As you can see in my photo I love to run around that is one of my reasons why I love sport. Sport keeps people healthy and fit . I would love to play any sport if I had the chance.
6: A positive challenge for me is coming from primary to High School and a negative challenge for me is dealing with all my homework and having to do it quickly but properly.I dealt with these problems by being wise with my time for both situations. Two positive challenges are ; moving from primary to High School and getting used to the discipline rules Two negative challenges are running from class to class and finishing my homework on time.
7: 5 coping strategies are;1.Do your homework on time never leave your homework to the last minute because if you do this often you will struggle with your work 2. Pack your bag the night before because with lockers there is always a problem. You always have to wait for others so if you pack you bag the night before you would not need to wait as long 3.Use your diary properly because it helps you with remembering your homework 4.Never be late to class because you will miss out on roll call and you will be marked absent 5.Never argue with the teacher because teachers will not like it and you will get in trouble for answering back to the teacher
8: 5 support services are ; 1.Teachers,because they know the place inside out 2.Priests because they are always walking around the area 3.Office because they need to know for their own sake 4.Students because they are just as lost as you and they need as much help as you do 5.Seniors because they have already made 1000 laps around the place because they have been here longer
9: 2 short term goals are; 1. Not talk to my friends during class as much 2.Use my diary more 2 intermediate goals are; 1.Not get more than 2 notes in my diary 2.Learn to revise everything I do in class 2 long term goals are; 1.Be prepared for more and harder homework 2.Be good in class and not argue with the teacher
10: In the next 5 years i expect to do my HSC.This is an amazing time because you get to go to university after that based on your marks and you get to finish school as well. If you get good marks you get to go back to school after and get applauded. | What I expect in the next 5 Years
11: I hope to achieve all my goals
