  3. I realised that even though at some times people will support and help you, you cannot rely on them too much and you need to believe/support yourself. (I know my reflection is kind of bad)

  4. i realised that we need to balance work and fun if we have too much of either it is not good just like when walking on the two tightropes if we only walk on one we will fall as it is a lot harder to balance

  5. I believe that, in order to overcome obstacles, we will need to overcome our fear. Though I did not complete the High Elements, I will try to compete it the next time I do it.

  6. After passing through the High Elements course unsuccessfully, I learnt that support from our peers is important in life. We also need to believe in ourselves to complete projects and overcome obstacles with perseverance

  7. I learnt that in order to complete the High Elements course, I needed determination, a positive mindset and courage. Although I did not complete the course, the next time I have a chance to complete it, I will try my best to finish it.

  9. From the high elements, I learnt that to proceed in life you have to take a few risks and to help each other when they need it. From the minefield game, I had to listen to my friend's instructions and dismiss the other PSL's who were trying to trick me into going the wrong way. From there, I can learn to do the right thing without getting distracted by people persuading me to do the wrong thing. Games such as the one with the egg taught me to overcome challenges with limited resources,

  11. I've learnt that without your classmates or even your friends, most of life's activities cannot be accomplished. Also, not to mention my overall attitude, I should improve to myself a better person.

    I learnt that we must not only aim to complete the High Elements course ourselves, but also help the person we are doing it with. If 1 person out of 2 isn't able to complete the course, it is like half the class failed. We should help out those in need if we have more experience in the activity. The high elements is not only the main focus of day 2, but also the games.

    I learnt that we have to listen well to your partner, at the same time, also trusting him/her. This emphasizes on listening to others' ideas and trusting them whether it would work out or not for any scenario at all.

    In conclusion, classmates have to learn how to help each other out and also open themselves to other people's ideas. We could not succeed if throughout the learning journey only 1 person contributes to the activity.

  17. I learnt that you need to trust your friends to complete the course. The belayers supported us and we trusted them to help us. If not for them, we would not have completed it.

  18. I realized that while our friends and family can support us,it is still ourselves who must go forward and take on the challenges in life.But nonetheless external support is essential to as there is strength in numbers.And never look back,never look down only look forward to success.

  19. I learnt to trust my classmates and without them a lot of tasks would be very difficult to complete alone. I also learnt that we should focus on only the goal and not be easily defeated by the challenges faced on the way there.

  20. I learnt to trust good friends and not to succumb to bad pressure. I also learnt to take courage and persevere.

  21. The High Elements taught me a lot. When I first heard about the high elements, I just thought that it would be all fun and games, but actually the facilitators there used our high elements experience as an analogy to some principles in life that we have to know, such as balancing work and play, courage and perseverance.

    I also learnt to be more emphatic. When I see people up there vibrating violently, I thought that they were too timid and that I could do better, but I was wrong. When I was up there, I realised that even though I was just 4 feet from the ground, I was panicking. Even afterI cooled down, I kept shaking when I was standing on the rope, even though I was clear that I will not die.

    Patience is also another thing I learnt. When I was belaying, I felt very bored and frustrated. I kept telling myself,”Why won’t he/she go faster?” But I soon realised that I myself was moving very slow when I was 4 feet in the air. If I could be more emphatic and put myself in the person’s position, I would not have had those thoughts.

  22. I learned to trust my classmates who worked as the belayers to keep me safe.My life would be at risk when undergoing such elements without their help.Lastly,I learned that after completing an achievement, we should not stop there but instead focus on another achievement and complete it too.

  23. I learned to keep myself more disciplined during activities outside of the school and to trust my friends who were belaying for me.

  24. Day 2 of orientation was rather an exciting and thrilling ones as we had to walk on high tightropes. some persevered and even when they fell from the the tightropes, they grabbed on and got back up on the rope. I want to thank everyone who supported me, especially the belayers who i had relied my life on for those few moments. Thank you.

  25. Day 2 was really fun and exciting.It was really fun to watch people do it and when i did the rope walking thing i was so scared but it was fun and after i came down i thought it was silly of me to be scared of falling since i had my class mates holding on to my rope.Thank you belayers.
