This is a personal, short reflection on how I felt about coming to Hobsonville Point Secondary School and how I felt beginning high school in 2014.
Beginning high school would have been one of the most scariest moments of my life that’s because I thought to myself that it would be the scariest thing. But in fact, it was all a load of rubbish as high school for me has been one of the most enjoyable moments of my education and one of the most valuable experiences I have been able to have. Being surrounded by such passionate teachers and people that actually care about you and how you go at school is one of the best things about Hobsonville Point Secondary School. The relationships between students and staff at Hobsonville Point is something that I cherish always and know that a lot of other people do. Being able to sit down with a teacher and go over work and talk to them. One of the many things that I have learnt over my time at Hobsonville Point is this…
“Teachers are not necessarily there to teach although it might look like that. Teachers are there to guide and help you through your learning journey and are there to help you set goals and help you work towards them”
Yes, I did make that quote up 😉 I have all of a sudden created this sense of acknowledging how madly dedicated to learning these people are because I never experienced that earlier in my learning at Primary School. School is where you spend a lot of time developing ideas and creating your learning, and if I can tell you one thing it would be this. Constantly reflect on your learning and reflect on where you want to go in life. Learning is the best pathway to help you with that.
