6: Interests: Some of my interests are playing and watching sports such as tennis because I enjoy playing it and hanging out with my friends.
7: Positive Challenges: 1. One positive challenge I have faced is the use of lockers. It was hard at first to get there before the people on top of me but I got used to it and to deal with it, I just ask the person on top of me nicely to move out of my way.
8: 2. The second positive challenge I have faced is moving classrooms. It was hard at first moving from class to class, building to building but to deal with this, I just walked to the other classroom without stopping and getting distracted
9: Negative Challenges: 1. One negative challenge I have faced so far is the workload, it is a lot different compared to primary where you get about 2 pages of homework. To deal with this, I just remember to do my homework on time and not to leave anything to the last minute.
10: 2. Another negative challenge is the different expectations of 8 teachers whereas in primary you only had to worry about 2 teachers. To deal with this, I just make sure I listen in class and make sure not to muck around.
11: 5 Coping Strategies: 1. Always be organised never leave things to the last minute 2. Always behave in class 3. Don't be nervous going to high school 4. Always pack your bag the night before 5. Always hand in assignments on time
12: 5 Support Services 1. Parents 2. Friends 3. Teachers 4. Older Students/siblings 5. Kids Helpline I have made these recommendations because they are always there to help
13: 2 Short term goals 1. To get good marks on assignments/assessments. 2. To get no more than 1 note in my diary. 1 Intermediate goal To always try my best and never give up. 2 long term goals 1. To always be organized. 2. To always pay attention in class.
14: One change I expect to have in the next 5 years is the HSC, this is a big step forward as it decides what you will work as in the future. This will be a lot of stress because I will have to study a lot every night. You must study every night if you want to get a good mark and work as what you want to work as, not at somewhere you don't want to be.
