Post-Orientation Reflection

The three highlights of my orientation were the Rope course, skit and Tower Building.
My low moments were the lack of food in day one, day two and day three.
I learnt not to give up ,to persevere and to take the initiative to lead.
I learnt that I am pretty bossy, and that i usually go hungry.
I look forward to going for cca and representing my school.
