Section 5: Affirmations
I believe this plan is realistic and suitable for me because: To do
my best possible in year 12 because it is only 3 terms of my life
and it will be over just like that. If I work hard now it means I will
not have to worry about the stress of finding another pathway in
university.
Parent suggestions and encouragement for my plan: Life in high
school is almost over. That I should try my hardest now due to
only having less then 2 and half terms left before I finish high
school. If I put in the hard work now then my education after high
school will be easier. University will allow me to take on a part
time job and play more volleyball without it interfering with my
studies, as long as I put in the hard work now.
