Achievement is Academically possible

20 October 2017 | Youth

De Duine where the sun never sets was good academically the second term. We are looking forward to seeing another term of great achievements. It’s a fact that De Duine performed excellent, but there’s massive room for improvement especially for the grade eights and nines.
It is safe to believe that De Duine has the potential and that we can rule the field of academics. The one and only way to get there is when teachers and learners co-operate set common yet realistic goals to enhance the image of our school. We all want to see generations who will make a change in our society.
Being part of a new curriculum, it could become daunting knowing the expectation that is set aside just for me. Yes, it is difficult and yes, there will be many pits before we find our way to a peak. I personally urge all to rise above the levels placed by yourself and society. If you genuinely want something, like being in the top 10, don’t wait for it, teach yourself to be a dream chaser, set your goals and work hard towards them. Personal experience had taught to not average at all in fact don’t be good be phenomenal.
Based on an interview with Ivana Muinjo, a grade 11 learner, when asked “How did De Duine perform academically?” Her response was quite familiar, she said that De Duine’s performance is average, due to lack of understanding and asking for help and distractions. I am grade 8 and I’ve been at De Duine for approximately seven months and by just observing I saw how awesome the teachers are and fortunate we as learners are. Yes, there are some inevitable aversive situations found at any school or institution, the trick is to pull through it all.
If you feel you have a problem with a subject approach the teacher and tell her/ him what your problems are or get an afternoon class which focuses on that subject and you will see how you will prosper. As learners we should struggle sometimes, but not at De Duine with all our capable teachers, staff members and our upright principal. Like our school anthem articulates, “… and our bright thinking will lead us into the future, that’s why we love you De Duine.”
