PERSONAL OBJECTIVE: To collaborate with my team mates to build a classroom destined for therapy for people with autism in a hospital.
REALIZED HOURS: 2 service hours and creativity hours.
The reconstruction of the hospital took place from May to December 2018. The goal of the activity was to build a classroom in a hospital for autism therapy. We visited the hospital three times during the summer, had a session for building the materials, and then had meetings throughout the semester. Finally, the materials were transported to the hospital on December 8th, 2018.
This activity allowed me to see how collaborative work pays off, as we were able to collect and build a great amount of materials for the hospital by working together as a group. It also helped us realize how important this issue is on a global scale. It was an eye-opening experience in many ways, and it also allowed us to meet people from other countries who were interested in our project. This was very important because we got to see how this issue is also very relevant in other parts of the world.
This was the room before we began the reconstruction:
These are the room once we finished building them, with the materials we collected from many people who were kind enough to donate resources (either money or the products themselves).
Some religious groups also donated to our cause. In the end, we got to see how many different people united to our cause and helped us accomplish our goal.
Seeing how happy the women who give therapy in these spaces were was extremely heart-warming. It was a reminder that when we put our mind and heart to it, it is possible to achieve amazing things. Now more than 120 kids will receive therapy in this space, and that’s just incredible for me to think of. It truly make me feel like I got to be part of something great for our community, something that will have a long-lasting impact.
During the last School Council’s meeting, we discussed the preparations for the upcoming ceremony during which we bid farewell to the IB2 class which will leave the school some 3 weeks prior to their first final exams. We needed to discuss the process and ceremony as we (ie. the international division of our school) have not yet held such a ceremony - we are trying to create a fusion of new customs and ideas with some established traditions from the other part of our school (ie. the polish baccalaureate division). At the end of the meeting, we also resolved to sacrifice the next round of debates to discuss potential changes to the rules of our School Council.
During today’s session of the school council, we again summarised the past auction; we agreed to undertake steps to ensure that the promised donations are made within a reasonable time, which were then split between various members of the council.
I also wanted to reflect on the Learning Outcomes that were addressed with my CAS Project; primarily, I believe that I managed to demonstrate that new challenges have been undertaken and I believe that I developed new skills as a consequence. As an example, I believe that the sheer fact that I reached out to gallerists and collectors for donations for the auction is important for my development, especially for overcoming my shyness in professional contacts. Secondly, I believe that I managed to recognize my strengths and weaknesses due to my cooperation with Franek Bielowicki and Ewa Stawecka; in retrospect, I notice that while my organization skills were sufficient for the auction, I wouldn’t be able to motivate my other colleagues for action as effectively as them. I resolved to attempt to develop this skill in the future. Thirdly, I hope that my and the school council’s actions managed to demonstrate the benefits of collaborative work - we successfully engaged the school community into one project which provided for the interaction among families and between generations that make-up our community. Finally, because of the final destination of the money that we fundraised (Doctors Without Borders’ actions worldwide), I demonstrated that even relatively small school communities are able to engage with issues of international importance.
Maersk Supply Service
The tow and the Aso FOS installation for the Culzean field were completed last September by Maersk Supply Service.
Some time ago my Finnish friend asked me to take care of his two one year old kittens, which he had to leave at home after some hormonal treatment, when they absolutely couldn’t be alone. I’ve agreed to help and babysit kittens for few hours, but at first I needed some training as I’m totally not a cat person and cats seem like a little aliens for me.
Beginnings were… difficult. I was completely frightened as all the memories I have with cats are strongly negative. I was paralysed when one of kittens approached me and started to play with my shoe laces. But as the hours passed by I slowly started to realise that cats are in fact dogs in permanently liquid state. Unlike cats I’ve met before, they don’t intent to scratch me all the time, don’t bite too much and for most of the time only want to throw them some toys and to pat them when they approach me.
I was really surprised that for whole my life I was afraid of cats, which turned out to be quite nice creatures after barely few hours. Also, one mayor difference between cats and dogs stroke me immediately - I can’t imagine any dogs I know to trust stranger enough to put him in a bag after few hours of knowing each other while my friend’s cat was quite happy to do so.
This year for the third time in a row I took part in WOŚP. I was collecting money as volunteer, what basically means that I was standing in cold outside for few hours. Still I think that it’s totally worth all the cold and effort since collected founds are used to buy medical equipment, which is always needed.
However there was something dramatically different about this year’s WOŚP which I’d like to reflect upon. Starting with personal reasons, it was a day before my oral exam from polish, which was surely the worst oral exam in my career. Still, I really wanted to help with collecting money but for the sake of my grades I had to limit collecting time and for the first time with my friends we weren’t one of the last to hand in our cans with collected funds - on the contrary, we were one of the first. Even though, as it turned out later, I’ve collected way more money than in previous years I still felt like what I was doing was only to show off, that I wasn’t putting all the possible time and resources into this volunteering. From the perspective of time, I know that I really needed those few extra hours for preparation for my oral exam, but I still feel that I didn’t do my best.
The second difference comes from recent law changes in Poland. I was collecting money in a centre of capital city of voivodeship, so place where not many people live - mostly just travel there daily to do shopping, for school or work. As my voluntary work took place on Sunday there were almost no people in there as people don’t go to school or work then and due to new Polish law shops are also closed. I can say that the difference was huge in comparison to the previous years, as city seemed completely dead.
But despite of all that problems it was still great time for me and my friends, as we got to spend some time together and at the same time help a bit. During our service we’ve met an older man who said that he didn’t have any more money for us but as a thanks for our service he gave us hand-made wizened four-leaf clovers, which are a symbol of luck in my culture. I think it was the best part of that day for me - when an older man who didn’t have much himself gave us a result of years of collecting and preparing clovers.
This is the day the LORD has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
- Psalm 118:24
There are days when the last thing we want to do is rejoice. Our mood is down, our situation is out of hand, and our sorrow or guilt is overwhelming. We can relate to the writers of the psalms who often felt this way. But no matter how low the psalmists felt, they were always honest with God. And as they talked to God, their prayers ended in praise.
When you don’t feel like rejoicing, tell God how you truly feel. You will find that God will give you a reason to rejoice. God has given you this day to live and to serve him—be glad!
