Waking Up to School

Waking up in the morning, getting out of bed and heading off to another day at school may not always have great appeal. This is especially true when the weather is cold and the mornings are yet to see the light. We are often told that we need to succeed at school if we are to lay a solid foundation for our future. Yet it is this idea of future that seems to make things difficult. Being a student can seem like being in the business of doing something now and not see the real benefits of it until some point in a distant future. But this view need not necessarily be true. School offers a lot that is immediate and about the now.Focus on short term goals and get satisfaction from picking them off one by one.
Take on a challenge. While gaining a high grade is obviously satisfying, there is also great satisfaction in taking on a challenge and getting to understand something of an area that you found difficult at first. You still might not be top of the class … but you will be top of yourself. If you can set a challenge and achieve it, the feeling of success is something you will remember for a long time.
Enjoy the knowledge of your teachers. Teachers are specialists in their particular field and they have knowledge and wisdom. They are people who have developed over time a whole range of skills and knowledge that is interesting. Become confident and comfortable enough to talk with them about the knowledge you seek. If you need help ask for it; do not sit there wishing that somehow the teacher will read your mind and know you would like help with something. One of the things that is common to all teachers is a passion to share what they know with others. If they did not have this they would be doing something else.
Enjoy CAS. The afterschool activities are the things I remember most from my High School days. What happened in class is largely forgotten, but playing sports and working on school publications and such things remain as strong memories. It is in these activities that you will learn a lot not just about yourself but also about how to relate to others. Enjoy doing a Service. Not just to have it on your CV but because you are luckier than a lot of other people and because we all have something to learn from each other. Service is best when it is freely given. This type of Service brings its own rewards
