St Helena is challenging. You’re pushed to be your best.
Sports events are great. You meet new people when you join in. I’ve done football, volleyball and cricket. We all did swimming and athletics.
The transition camp was great too.  We did hut building and a high ropes courses. There were trampolines and a flying fox.
Sport, performing arts and music are my favourite subjects.
We’re encouraged to use our computers a lot.  The stylus is the thing.
There’s lots of ways to earn House points. There was a huge Dodge Ball Tournament last term. Freeman won.
Daring to be Excellent is about pushing yourself. I’m a runner. I came fourth in my race, which wasn’t good enough to progress to the next level of competition but it was a personal best for me – and that’s excellent. I’ll beat that time in the next race too!
It’s not about your score or result, it’s about your personal best.
