Introduction

Citizenship Coursework A During year 6 in my primary school, me and 3 of my friends participated in a group task for my school and community. As a group we had to collect gift items for our annual Christmas hampers for our elderly citizens. We knew that many of them are on their own, and often never see anyone. Whilst carrying out this task we had to organise how we were going to carry out the hamper collection, as a group we came up with some ideas: * Tell people in assembly about the hamper project. * Ask friends and people at home to take part and help * Write a letter to the head teacher to help us with the hamper collection as well The next step was to decorate the boxes to a show the elderly that we care. Then we had to make sure each box contained an equal amount of food and also an equal amount of variety of food as the other boxes. ...read more.

After we returned from the Christmas holidays we were pleased to receive letter from some of the elderly who received hampers, this made our efforts worth wile and we were very glad we had chosen to do this activity. We learned a lot from it, we learned that any project needs planning and organisation, it needs co-operation so everyone knows what their task is. We believe by doing this project we may encourage others in the school to stop and think about those who need help and hopefully do something for them. We hope that students will follow our example and we know that it has already had a positive effect on others. During the task, we ran out of time on many occasions for our tasks. These problems mainly occurred because of lack of resources that we required. However, with a little extra time delay, we got everything completed in the end. If we did this project again I would consider time-management, as we needed more time to plan and organise such a huge task. ...read more.

Conclusion

I enjoyed taking part in this project a lot even though I had to spend some of my free time going to other classes to tell them about the hampers. I also enjoyed working in a group as we all got on well, and we all listened to other people's ideas and therefore made the project better, whilst working in a group we did not argue either. From this task, I learnt that even elderly people need to be happy as they may be very vulnerable and alone especially in the holiday season. Families celebrate together and unfortunately some people do not have the luxury for that. Because of this, I think that everyone should have something to look forward to during time of joy. ?? ?? ?? ??
