In half a year, I’ll be finishing Grade 8. It’s the time when I will move on to another school. This school could be a regular school, or a school that has a programme that explores the world in depth, called International Baccalaureate (IB). I went to a meeting today, and found out that it is a programme that helps you explore your strengths and weaknesses, and how you can fix them. Here, it’s not all about marks; it’s about the desire to learn about the world around you, not just about your community (narrow-minded). It really sounds like a great programme to go to, because I could learn more. In February, I will go and take the exam to see if I can make it into IB. One of the things that needs to be completed in the IB programme is a 4000 word essay. To me, it sounds difficult, but that’s because I’m not prepared for it yet. I feel that if I am accepted into this programme and show a desire to learn, then this won’t be hard at all.
Learning is a powerful tool.
