Hello all (:
I’ve been quite busy lately, so I apologise for not posting as much. Now that’s out of the way, I’ll move on: My biggest success…
I’m sure I’ve had loads of good things happen, but this one is really distinct. Two years ago, around March, I was in Year six. We had just been told that there’d be an opportunity for us to be a part of the schools’ Student representative council (SRC). We would have to prepare a speech and present it to the Principal and Vice-principal. Our teachers and the rest of Year six would watch. Now this was something I really wanted to do. But having to get up, in front of the staff and students and read out a speech that probably wouldn’t be very good anyway? No thanks!
My friends, though, supportive as usual, convinced me to give it a go. I was good at writing speeches and I was bound to get through. I’m glad they did. You see, at the time, I was convinced the vice principal had it in for me. Ever since an incident between me and three older girls that had happened the year before (I was the innocent one!), she was really nasty towards me.
So, I wrote my speech. I probably still have a copy of it lying around, come to think of it. The next week, I presented it. There were three different positions to try out for. Captains, Vice captains, and prefects. It ended up being like a competition really, with the people getting through the first round having to present another speech to their class! I passed the first round, and then, a week later, went on to present another speech to my class stating why I should be allowed a spot in the SRC. The teachers would then decide on who would get into the ‘third-round’. It was so nerve-wracking, but I was really happy when I found out that I’d get to keep going.
Finally, we had to present the same speech we had written for the second round to the principal and deputy. That went okay. I didn’t make any mistakes, it was just a bit awkward. As expected, the principal and deputy had their favourites. People bound to win every time. And they did again. The girl who became Captain had three sisters. All of them had been Captains, more than once too.
Still, I managed to become a Prefect. It was very cool. Kids would come up to me and just ask for advice. Sometimes, I was like the peacemaker in the playground. I definitely got a lot of respect, and I had great friends.
Last year, I found out that one of my old best friends had gotten into the SRC. I was so happy for her because she had tried out with me, but didn’t get in. She deserved it too. She was a fantastic friend, and a really good leader.
And that’s it (‘:
