  2. How to paintball

    Price is also a consideration; Paintball is a really expensive hobby. You should expect to pay at least eighty five dollars for a case of paint, goggle rental and a paintball gun rental for a four-hour session. For me, I usually plan out which day im going to be attending these events, keeping the weather in mind. I usually make sure its not too cold or too hot outside, because running around in layers of clothes and being active for four hours straight usually becomes pretty overwhelming.

  4. Duke of Edinburg Adventurous Journey Report

    The green carpeted Savar Golf Course was the main attraction of our journey from Dhaka to Aricha. After an hour's delay at the Aricha ferry ghat, it took us another hour to cross the river. The other half of our journey from ferry ghat to Khulna was torturous. Amid the sweltering heat of the shrouded sun, the AC of the AC bus kept breaking down and we were not in a position to actually appreciate the natural roadside beauty. Everyone was sweating and cursing inside the bus. And no one had the heart of taking pictures or tuning to a song.

    because we will be spending our time helping the younger students with something that is an incredibly important part of their education. We will also like to be role models for the younger students. Before we actually do the activity it is important to now what topic the students find the most difficult and it is my job to find out this information. Inorder to find out which topic we have to teach the students I will design a questionnaire for the maths class to do and I will then analyse the results to see what topic we will have to prepare a lesson for.

    One big disadvantage is that we all live quite far away from each other so it was hard to have meetings out of school time so we had to rely on email and instant messengers to contact each other. We will hold meeting every two weeks during school so it's easy to contact each other. Our first meeting will be choosing our event and charity so we can give everyone in the group tasks to do. Members It was a bit of a set back when one of our members left because we needed to distribute the tasks given to

  12. Work Experience

    She then sent my c.v out to the company. This placement was secured. It was French Connection in Harlequin. The type of work I had to do was retail. I had to stock up clothes help customers, watch changing rooms and order in new stock. From this experience I was hoping to gain patience with women as I was working with them and helping them, gain more confidence and experience with young girls and deal with problem that I may encounter. My fear was that I would was that I would end up getting very friendly with some customers that I may serve as I was told by Miss Beacker I would be in the women's section helping the girls out.

    As per usual mum started crying because her little girl was growing up. I'm only going to work it isn't like I'm leaving home, I told her. But yet she still made some speech up although I didn't understand what she was going on about due to the sobbing. When I finally left and got to work it was just me and Becca standing in the corner not having a clue what to do. Nine o'clock came and I was introduced to the staff. There was Louise the mum of the group. She made sure everyone was ok especially me and sue.

School again I get to be bored all day and stare at the ceiling for six hours having the time of my life.

  15. what you learnt from your experience

    I was expecting to be interviewed by a hard faced, dull person who did not seem to have a bright future, whose world just evolved around by decayed teeth but instead she was totally the opposite, she was very friendly and welcoming, I felt as if I had known her for years. It was rather an informal interview; she showed me the entire infrastructure of the hospital, it felt like entering another planet in outer space as their were dozen of floors which had dozens of department, there was a unique language in the Hospital where words like RD2, A&C were used, which seemed to be Chinese to me at first.

  18. Work Experience

    As I walked in through the sunlit oak panelling hall way, I suddenly got a big whiff of polish. I saw shiny gold picture frames, a logo representing Bukhari Solicitors, just above the door opposite me, tidy piles of paper and files were stacked on top of each other almost ready to tumble. I walked onwards towards a door with a shiny golden plaque on it which read "Reception", I knocked... "Enter", the voice sounded cold and shrilly. I walked inside and there sat a tall, bow old man, his beard tied up in a red bobble, he surveyed me with his half moon spectacles and said "Sit down please".

  19. My work experience application was accepted for a local caf, where I was hoping to get a weekend job at, at the end of my work placement.

    Apparently I was going to be working '....in a variety of scenarios'. I pictured myself making executive decisions over the phone and taking an ever-increasing amount of money off the public and into the tills. Actually, my first task was to remove the packaging from the ice-lollies and put them into the freezers. Einstein eat your heart out. It was then that I quickly realised that I was going to be doing the jobs that no-one wanted to for the whole exciting two weeks. Oh well, it was better than chemistry. Just.

  20. Work Experience talk to year 10.

    You can either phone them, e-mail them or send them a letter. What I did was phone them because I believe this was the most affective way and this way you are also able to find out more necessary information. All I had to do after I phoned was go and visit my placement to get to know everyone and to get to know the building. The day before I started on my work experience I was very anxious, but at the same time I was looking forward. So don't worry if you have similar feelings before you start your work experience because they're just normal.

    dressed, it looked as if he had tried to come in his best clothes but they still looked a bit old and worn out as if he had worn them on one too many occasions, where he tried to look his best. Looking down I could see that his shoes were also a bit tattered and battered the heel of the shoe was a bit messed up.

  22. Career development: Successful work experience

    The involved me in conversations asked me questions answered mine. Especially in the first week they supported me and if I was stuck with something the didn't hesitate to help they were brilliant and as they were giving up there own time I found this really pleasing as most of the time they didn't need to help they just did. I felt comfortable being in the office with them as they treat me as a fellow employee and not a student.

  23. Work experience

    As the customer left, I felt angry with myself because I had not taken in the layout of the shop quickly enough, I felt guilty because the customer left without their goods and concerned that my boss might give me a negative comment about it. Luckily, my boss didn't see this happen so I sighed in relief. As the hours went by I stacked shelves and mainly served customers on the till. Every time I made a little mistake I was uneasy at the thought that I would get told off.

  24. Work Experience

    (That was my excuse) At the start of each day the bikes (I worked in a bike shop called cycles U.K) have to be taken from the back room and put into the shed. "They can't be left in the shed because someone could steal them much easier than if they're left in the shop" he explained to me. When we had moved all of the bikes out we finally opened the shop (an hour and a half late) Then, to my horror, I realised Wednesday's are a delivery day and that meant getting the bikes out of the cellar in the shop.

All students in school years 10 and 11 are offered the chance to complete a few weeks work experience and although at first this may appear quite daunting it can be a great experience. There's some very good reasons for doing work experience - it will introduce you to the world of work, a long way away from all that homework; it will help focus you on what you might like to do (and avoid!), after you've finished your education and it's been proven that students are more motivated to do well at school when they return from their work experience.

Quite where you end up depends on a variety of factors but you might like to think about what you'd like to do well in advance. The kinds of things youll be doing depend largely on your employer. One thing you will need to do on your return is to complete a work experience report and to find out they type of thing expected from you, visit the Marked by Teachers work experience section. You'll find a variety of examples which will help you plan and write your own report.
