Aiming

High By Najwa Kaawach

It’s a new school year, meaning a new start. Are you slacking around while you watch your friends get involved with school life? Are they aiming high, while you are hanging low? Well, it’s time to move out of your comfort zone and be daring to try new things to make this year at school unforgettable and successful!

Start now and you will be prepared to make the best out of the new school year.

Here are 6 steps:

1. Get Involved!

One of the easiest ways of taking part in your school and doing something new is by getting involved with school activities. Make sure to keep your eyes open for any notices going around up at your school for things such as soccer try-outs, school show auditions, and afterschool activities. If you need a little push, ask a friend to tag along. Once you put yourself out there, you will gain new experiences and make new friends in the process.

2. Volunteer!

If someone is looking for help in a subject or a teacher needs a student to write a speech for an assembly etc., then do it! You won’t only be helping them, but also helping yourself. People will appreciate your selfless volunteering, you will have a good time, and you will create stronger bonds within the school community.
