2020 was a challenging year for most learners due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Zone spoke to learners at Ongwediva to find out what their academic goals for this school year are.
I plan on doing exceptionally well in all my subjects this year and I also want to motivate other learners to do the same. We all need to make our parents proud this year and I will remind myself of this each time I stray away from my academic goals.
They say the road of education is bitter, but its fruits are sweet. So, I want to meet the goals I set for myself this year by always going the extra mile by putting in more effort and studying in advance.
I have many plans set for myself, but I want to achieve at least five C’s and a D in Oshiwanyama since it is not one of my strongest subjects, but I will still give it my best try. I also plan on getting a tutor and staying after school to study.
This year, I just plan to study hard so that I can be promoted to grade 12. I also plan to improve my public speaking skills as I suffer from stage fright. In order to achieve this goal, I have enrolled in extramural activities so I can engage with other learners.
A wise one once said practice makes perfect, so my academic goals for this year are exactly just that. I want to practice for the exams using old question papers and also enrolling for extra lessons in all the subjects that I struggle with. I will also stay in class after school and study.
I just want to improve like everyone else. I also want to improve in maths and biology. I also want to be more active in school and take part in different extramural activities. I also want to take up another language and learn Spanish.
