Reflection of my Excellence badge

Reflecting on how I have became a better leader by doing home learning challenges and leadership blog posts, I have learnt about sorting things out in peer mediation and how to solve problems without involving teachers. Also doing this over the year I feel like I have matured by doing these things.
Also it has made me want to do my dutys more and doing a but extra so I can blog about it.
Overall the leadership badges, home learning Challenges have made me a better leader and have helped me understand leadership.

Kapa Haka

Today I had Kapa Haka.
First as a warm up we went through a quick song and then did our school song.
We also did Poi but some of us (including me need to go slower so that what i'm working on.)
We also are adding a new song with possible actions. I am also looking forward to opening up the Halwell cafe and library as I really enjoy performing in the Kapa Haka.
Overall I am now going to try and go slower while doing the poi so I can be more in time.

Choir

Today I had Choir.
We Practised some songs that we haven't practised in a while.
The songs were welcome home by David Dobbin and adiamus.
We went over Harmony's for the adiamus and pronunciation of words.
Overall I really enjoyed Choir practise and am looking forward to preforming to the people at the retirement home as I think they will really enjoy it.

Peer Mediation

Today I had Peer Mediation and as the people I do it with were not here I had 2 of my friends do it with me.
There was not really many problems, but there were some year 4 students that weren't being sensible so we had to sort it out but separating so they would play there games better.
Overall there weren't many problems in Peer Mediation but I am happy my friends help me as when there isn't any problems it can be a bit boring.

Choir

recently I had choir. It was the first practise in a while since not doing the music festival.
We first;y talked about our performances for the rest of the year.
After we choose the songs we wanted to perform with a vote the popular ones were slice of heaven and murasame.
After we practised both songs and did our songs adiumus.
Overall I am starting to prefer the song adiumus.

Kapa Haka

Today I had Kapa Haka and there weren't many people as there weren't many year 7&8s and no year 4's.
We practised the songs we were going to do for place we are having an opening performance.
We also practised positions for a different performance.
Overall I really enjoyed Kapa Haka and hope to remember the actions to one of out songs a bit more and I need to remember where I am standing for different performances so it won't be all over the place!

Peer Mediation

Today I did Peer mediation to help Ellie out as the people she had weren't there.
We went around the Junior area and there was a problem of someone who pushed someone over accidentally so I had to sort that Out. there was another problem where a girl didn't have anyone to play with as her friend was playing in the sandpit and she didn't want to play in there so I asked a group of girls if she could play with her.

Peer Mediation

Today I had Peer Mediation.
It was a bit hard as athletics ran overtime but luckily I am on the second half of lunch.
We finished short sprints at 1:05 so I ate lunch for 5 minutes then went to peer mediation as my shift is on at 1:10.
There weren't any problems but we still walked round the field.
Overall there weren't any problems.
