‘’Oakhill has been awesome this year, I've had my difficulties. Sometimes I must give my all and sometimes there's just enough time to have fun. I've made lots of new friends and have a few favourite teachers whose teaching methods are excellent.
Oakhill has mentors who guide us through thick and thin and are always there when we need advice. It hasn't been so bad being the newbies of Oakhill college, and if I stay another year or more that would mean a lot to me.
I've noticed that in IEB schools, the education is one grade higher than other government schools so it has been tricky to only come in at grade eight where I've taken such a big step from a government school to a private school and taken me a while to understand the difference in work.
The Lemonade Day project has taught me a lot including how to handle and not waste money on silly things and it taught me the ways of trade and that one does not just trade with only money. The other thing I've learnt is that entrepreneurship is not only about money, it’s also about using common sense and knowing how to handle people mentally.
I've been thinking a lot about my future but my mom says I'm stressing too much and must first focus on the present and I really don't know if that’s a good or bad thing.
I would like to send a massive thanks to everyone who has helped me at Oakhill this year and for the people who helped me get into Oakhill, that it would be a really big pleasure if they could do the same for next year. Thank you.’’
