STUDENT LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Hello, guys!
Now, I will share my experience during Student Leadership Training....

What is leadership?
.
.
A simple definition of leadership is the act of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal. Put even more simply, the leader is the inspiration and director of the action. He / she is the person in the group that possesses the combination of personality and leadership skills that makes others want to follow his / her direction.

At Thursday, September 21st 2017, My school, Senior High School 3 Bandung holds a Student Leadership Training. This event was held at the Infantry Armament Center (in Indonesian = Pussenif).

On the first day (Thursday, September 21st 2017), all of the students were lining up at the ceremony field to attend the opening ceremony. There we saw the training coaches for the first time. 288 students were divided into 10 groups consisting of 4 groups of boy and 6 groups of girl.  On 9 a.m, the ceremony held. In the ceremony, students are briefed on the Pussenif and the training rules.

After the ceremony completed, all of the students were entering a big hall located near the field. There we were introduced a jargon (encouraging words). The first teaching materials delivered by Mr. Aat. He explained well about how important leadership is. After that, our headmaster explained what leadership is.

On 11.30 a.m, we had a lunch. Before had a lunch, we had to sing before eating. According to the rules, when eating, our body must be upright. Spoon that comes to the mouth. The coaches only gave us 5 minutes to finished our lunch.

In the afternoon, we were taught the marching lines. Furthermore, in the evening, we were given teaching materials till 10 pm. After that, we went to the barracks and slept. However, 1 hour later there was the sound of sirens waking us up. We were told to go to the front of the barracks to row back and get a consequences. 

On the second day (Friday, September 22nd 2017), we woke up early morning at 4 am. Muslim students must go to the mosque to pray and listening to a lecture. After that, we collected in the field to do gymnastics morning. Continue with the line marching practice until 10 am.

After we finished the marching practice, we went back to the barracks to toke a bath and then went to the mosque for Friday prayers.

In the afternoon, we prepare to go to Taman Makam Pahlawan. Acording to the plan, in that place we will hold a night caraka. We brought two candles and some money to buy some water.

Right at 5 pm, we went there. We walked down the lane while singing the song of the spirits. After a distance of 2 km, we got there at around 6 pm. Then, the muslims pray at the mosque near from it place.

Night caraka event started at 7 pm. Before the peak of the event, we get a briefing from the coach about the rules of the game. First, we are given norrit to make dirty faces, its function is as a disguise tool. Furthermore, we line up according to their respective groups.

So, that's My story about Student Leadership Training.....

Unforgettable Moment

Hello!
This Time, I would like to share my unforgettable moment in my live

When I was in elementary school grade 2, I ever joined a competition that calls Calistung (In Bahasa = Baca tulis hitung). I joined this competition after been selected by my mathematics teacher and Bahasa teacher. I'm very happy at that moment because it is my first time to join an academic competition.

My teacher chose me to join the competition because of my mathematics skills. I love mathematics since I was a child. In my opinion, math is fun because there are so many way to solve problems in math. Beside that, my mathematics teacher in my elementary school is great and fun. It makes me love mathematics.

To win the competition, I have to learn and practice more than others. Because of that, I usually trained by my teacher after school. When other students go home, I still in school. Furthermore, I often got a dispensation from school. Luckily, I didn't missed any school lessons.

Besides at school, I also study at home with my parents. My father gave me some exercises to do. He also teach me how to solve an expert question that I can't solve it.

Continuous practiced make me bored. One day before the competition started, I went to a football field near my house. From a distance, I saw my friends played there. Then, I joined them to play football. All of us take off our footwear. Accidentally, my foot stepped on a sharp broken glass. Then, bloods poured out from my foot. My friends picked me up and bring me home. My mother was very shocked when she saw my condition. Then, she cleaned my wounds and put a bandage on me.

I was very painful at that time. I forgot everything including the competition. At that time, I just want to rest and cancel the competition, but my mother gave me some motivations to don't give up.

The next day, my wounds become better. I feel I can join the competition although my foot is bandaged. With a high hopes and prayer, my parents accompany me to the location where the competition was held.

At 8.00 a.m. the competition started. Sometimes, I feel pain, but I could endure the pain because of my focus to solve all of the questions. At 10.00 a.m. the competition finished. Alhamdulillah, I am very grateful because I can solve all the questions. After finished the competition, the participants should waited for the results. But, I asked to the committee to go home first because of my feet pain.

About 3.00 p.m. my teacher call my mother and informed that I became the second winner of the competition. I am very happy and grateful as though my feet didn't pain at all.

~~THE END~~


That is a story about my unforgettable moment.
Thanks for visiting my web.
GOOD BYE..!

My name is Muhamad Fikri Nurohman, you can call me fantastic Fikri.I was born in Sumedang, 24th September 2001. Now, i am 15 years old. I live at Komp. Permata Biru AL no. 94. My cozy house is not too big, but I am very happy live there because I have a lot of friends there.

My previous school is SMPN 2 Bandung, who located near my current school, SMAN 3 Bandung. My hobby is reading a lot of books. I like chemistry, mathematics, and Islamic religion. The reason why I want to go to SMAN 3 Bandung is because this school has enough achievement and spawned a lot of students who can continue their study in state universities. Hopefully I can follow them too.

Futhermore, my dream is to entering medical faculty of Indonesian University. Beside that, i want to be a doctor and a person who memorized Al-Qur'an.

There are a lot of Indonesian tasty foods that I like , such as kerak telor, cuanki, bandrek, and many more. Beside that, I also like a lot of Indonesian culture, especially in West Java. Wayang golek, angklung, and jaipong are nice. I like all of them.

Now I will tell you about my family.
I live in a small family. My parents name are Djadja Adisaputra and Uning Rohani. Both of them are civil servant. My father works at provincial government at Gedung Sate, and my mother is a teacher of SMPN 1 Jatinangor.

I also have a younger brother. His name is Muhammad Nabil. He is 9 years old and now he is a student of SDN 50 Bandung. People around me said that he looks like me. That's true because we have a same hobby, reading a lot of books. Beside that, he is a good footballer because he can run as fast as me although his body is small. I love my family more than anything.

That's All.

THANK YOU :)
