On Wednesday, 22 November 2017, Grade 8s spent the whole day working on their projects for their Service in Action class. The projects ranged from craft works to music, dance, sports, literacy, fashion and social awareness creation. Some of these projects got the students to collaborate with their friends from our neighbouring school, Calvary Presby Basic School.
Below are some reflections of their experiences.
The best part of my experience at Calvary was when I saw my friends from out last visit and when I taught the selected people to do bead making to make beads. Lucky for us, all of them were eager to learn and all shared a similar passion for bead making with us. I was proud that in the end we taught them something they enjoyed and liked. I felt nervous at first but I eventually warmed up. They told us about how they try to make beads on their own. They were all easy to work with so there were no challenges with collaboration. When we arrived and started, it took us a while to set up our materials. We taught Comfort, Rhoda, Patience, Esther and Joyce how to make two types of beads. Next time, we will learn more styles so that we can teach them. We will also teach them how to fix a tight, secure hook. (Nina Arkaah)
Teaching Spanish to my friends at Calvary was fun. I was shy but then I overcame it. I finished my plan successfully. It was quite challenging when they could not get what I repeat 10 times but I still cooperated with them. I can tell they enjoyed the class. We had a great time and I would like to go back there.

We created our Twitter account, we made beads and we made some posters. We had a challenge making the posters because we could not really decide on what colour we should use for the fonts to make it visible. We also had a challenge finishing the bracelets we made. We had difficulty choosing the colours for the bracelets because we are supposed to make the bracelets unisex so we did not know what colours to use. Everything else went well and we kindly ask that you follow us on Twitter. TIS_Lets_Love (Keisha Okai)
