Volunteering with Rachael3:22 PM
After a really amazing weekend in KL (post about this later), my friend and fellow YES Abroad'er Rachael followed me back to Ipoh for some volunteering, and of course some fun. This is the report we submitted to AFS MAlaysia, I tried to make it less formal, but apologies if this reads as formal or too wordy.
Next, we shared about American school. We started off by passing around my yearbook to the class and they were really interested in seeing firsthand through pictures what my school is like. We explained the schooling system (grades, ages, and courses.) The students were surprised about the freedom in class selection given to high school students. They were shocked at the lack of uniforms, prefects, and electronic restrictions. After elaborating on the academic portion of school, we discussed sports and co-curriculars. We explained the idea of school spirit and the significant role sports events play in a high schooler’s life.
