Our last post (Justin Vihaan)

We would like to thank our team members, our teachers and thanks to basically everyone who has helped on this journey of Exhibition of learning. That means people like our mentor, our parents, the people from NGOs that have been so kind to help us with this controversial topic. And last but not least we are going to thank ourselves for staying together as a group and not ditching the group.

The day on Thursday when we presented from 8:00AM to 3:00PM to all manner of different people, including high-schoolers, middle-schoolers, grade 4 students, our buddies, SAIS students, GEMS academy students and many visitors. Something that we found challenging was to stand up for 7 hours straight and repeating the same thing again and again and again. Another thing we found challenging was some of the students started to leave in the middle of the presentation purposefully. Something that we liked was we got to eat two gummies because we needed sugar to stay standing all that time. Also, something we would change next time would be to not talk so loudly because, at 3PM, we ended up with sore throats.

In conclusion, Thursday was a celebration of Exhibition (which was a tiring one.) in which we presented the entire day to the people listed above and did rather well, at least to our knowledge.

Presenting at Exhibition

After exhibition I looked back and thought about how I could have presented better and what things I considered while presenting. While presenting projection of voice was important especially with so much noise all around you. Projection is vital when you want someone to know a message because if you have the right projection they should remember it. The second most important thing is to seem focused you seem. This important because you need people to take you seriously especially when talking to adults or other people older than you. The third most important thing is eye contact. Eye contact can show your audience that you're passionate and not to be taken lightly.
 Visiting SAIS really helped me understand these concepts.
You want to speak well you have to follow these things.

The end of Exhibition

Exhibition has finally come to the end. Throughout Exhibition, I have learnt to become a better learner in knowledge and the mind to help and care for others. One thing that Exhibition has helped me in myself was to overcome a fear of talking to many people, not being shy but being confident in speaking. Exhibition as also helped me to know group members more, before I knew only a little of them but now I know pretty much a lot from them.

I think a big part of Exhibition is to communicate, collaborate and being resilience. It all links because if your group does not collaborate or communicate well, you have to be resilient to keep on trying to be what you would like to achieve as a learner.

Even though Exhibition has come to the end, we are still doing our action plan. I think that our action plan will not stop just because we ended Exhibition or Grade 5 but keep on doing it over the summer or as we move to older grades. 

Exhibition has been a huge impact to me as a learner and myself, I would never want to forget the knowledge I had achieved from this progress.
