Dear Mr Tan
Proposal on the Post-Exam Activity
As the Head of Student Welfare in the Students Council, I would like to inform you that my team members have found the Wong&Tan Educational Services Consultancy website that specialises in carrying out student enrichment programmes.After careful consideration and planning, we would like to recommend the Overseas Values-in-Action Project and Interschool Sports Games as the post-exam activities for the Secondary 3 students.
Firstly, the Overseas Values-in-Action Project allows the students learn how to care about others’ troubles and develops a habit of helping people.Many teenagers nowadays are not independent and strong enough, they care much more about their academic results or appearance instead of life of the poor in other areas. Through this activity,not only can our students understand more deeply about other people's misery and pain, they will also obtain a sense of satisfaction by offering help to the poor.By experiencing this, the students will learn to care more about other people around them and become more giving and caring.More importantly, it will most likely to become a habit.
Undeniably, the three other programmes are all extremely beneficial and meaningful, but comparing to the Overseas Values-in-Action Project, they all lack a chance to form and train character through experience as blacksmith fires and shapes iron.The students can always hold the Inter-class games in the school with teachers’ permission, the First Aid Training can be learnt in another time and as for the Jungle Rumble, I think the school can choose another place with more fun and more interesting activities.Therefore, the Overseas Values-in-Action Project is the most necessary and important one within all the choices.
In addition, we would also like to suggest the Interschool Sports Games.It can only be held with the cooperation of other schools , so it will be extremely interesting and challenging. Not only it will inculcate a healthy spirit of competition and sportsmanship, also it will improve communication between schools and build the team work.Many students get to exercise and participate in different competitions during the event so that they can a lot of fun. Apart from the fun part, most importantly, participants can develop confidence and trust.Therefore it is an excellent choice for the post-exam activities.
All in all, the Overseas Values-in-Action Project will teach our students caring and sharing by offering humanitarian aid support to the poor and the Interschool Sports Games will let the students experience the team work as well as have fun.No matter which one is chosen, our students will be benefited a lot from the activities.We would appreciate it if you could spend some of your valuable time reading through this letter.
