World Scholar’s Cup | Regional Round 2019

As someone who’s introvert and was rarely doing any public speaking, it is very challenging for me to talk in front of a lot of people, and this also apply with debate. But lately, I really want to prove myself that I can actually do public speaking. So then, when I know that there is this debate competition called ‘World Scholar’s Cup’, I feel like it could help me improve my self-confidence and public speaking skill. And that’s why I joined this competition.

Right now some of you might be thinking, what is World Scholar’s Cup? Well, as I said before, it is a team debate competition with 3 people in each teams. But that’s not the only activities they have in this event. There are also Collaborative Writing, Scholar’s Challenge, and Scholar’s Bowl. I will explain these activities throughout the story.

27.04.19 // Playground of Ujung Pandang: Behind the Scenes and My Experience

Playground of Ujung Pandang has become one of the unforgettable memories in my mind. The event was full of nerve-wrecking experiences, happiness, frustration, and tears. All of Cikal students tried to show the best of themselves. And I believe that everyone succeed to do it. But actually, in my opinion the most important is how we really put our time and heart in the preparation for this event. And also how teachers, students, and every member of the Sekolah Cikal Surabaya create bonds of trust and understanding during the entire preparation months. So I will try to include all of those ethereal feelings in this notes.

Bukit Bonsai dan Kesambi Tree’s Park Blitar

Sudah seminggu aku libur sekolah. Untuk menghabiskan sebagian waktu liburan ini, aku dan mamski mengunjungi rumah kakung dan nenek di Wlingi, Blitar. Kebetulan sudah cukup lama juga kami tidak “mudik”. Terakhir waktu lebaran yang lalu. Dan selagi berada di kampung halaman, kami ingin pergi ke tempat-tempat wisata yang belum pernah kami kunjungi sebelumnya. Setelah mencari-cari melalui internet dan bertanya-tanya ke beberapa saudara, aku, mamski, dan dua sepupuku (Mbak Irma dan Mbak Risma) Hari Sabtu kemarin memutuskan untuk pergi ke Bukit Bonsai dan Kesambi Tree’s Park yang dulu dikenal dengan nama Penangkaran Rusa Maliran.

Oya, mungkin kalian bertanya-tanya kemana papski. Papski masih belum datang, hari ini masih mengisi pelatihan untuk guru-guru di Rembang. Rencananya papski akan menyusul sampai di Wlingi besuk.

My Summative Assessments in Term 2

After quite a long time learning in Sekolah Cikal Surabaya, it’s finally almost the end of the school semester. And that also means I need to finish all of my term 2 summative assessments in time. Just like last term, the summative assessments that I got were very interesting so I decided to share some of it in this blog.

The first assessment was from English lesson. I think, this was the most complicated assessment that I got comparing to the other assessments. So first, we observed some issues that we faced in our daily life for a week. For me, it includes traffic jam, bumpy road, littering, and etc. The next step was, we chose one issue out of the seven issues that we already found on the observation and made a road map about it.
