With school beginning one last time for me, I am excited to form new CAS goals and maintain my commitment to those from last year.
I aim to…
- Explore and improve upon my creativity skills and talents by:
(a) Maintaining my commitment to playing the piano, by continuing my lessons, and sitting for the ABRSM Grade 4 Piano Practical exam. Additionally, I will look at identifying my strengths and areas for growth, in order to improve as a pianist.
(b) Developing new musical skills by playing the glockenspiel as part of the concert band for the upcoming gala concert.
(c) Undertaking new challenges by taking violin lessons and learning to play an instrument that is very different from the piano.
(d) Exploring new areas of creativity, such as photoshop and digital editing, in Yearbook.
(e) Reflecting on my creative efforts by analyzing my skills and progress and determining how to get better.
- Show significant development in my activities by:
(a) Showing commitment and perseverance by participating in badminton and yoga again.
(b) Working collaboratively with fellow athletes in badminton, in order to maintain my strengths in the sport and develop in areas for growth.
- Prove my dedication to service in the community and determine how to increase the quality of my efforts by:
(a) Maintaining my commitment to the service ‘Hope for Kids’.
(b) Working collaboratively with the members of my service to spread awareness of global issues, such as cancer, and the ways in which it is affecting our own community in Sri Lanka.
(c) Apply my leadership skills as a leader of my service in order to plan and initiate activities that will benefit the patients at the cancer hospital, and aid in bringing funds to help the hospital with their worthy cause.
- Fulfill my CAS requirements by:
(a) Planning and carrying out a CAS project
Looking back at my goals in DP1, I have aimed to make my goals more specific and achievable, in order to have a more successful CAS experience during my last year of high school.
