Dear Lee and Leigh,
My name is Ben Gray. I have been at Moonee Ponds Primary School since prep. I have had an amazing time at Moonee Ponds and I’m sure it would be even better if I was Coastal Ambassador. I have been involved in the Green team member for two years, SRC for four years, the better buddies program, the MVIMP program since year three, tournaments of mind for two years, and many sports such as Hockey 7s which can help with communication skills.
I would like to be a Coastal Ambassador for 2015 because I like the idea of working with other people to make things better. I have always loved animals having dogs, cats, fish and birds. I like keeping the environment in good condition (do this by watering our garden). Also ever since I was a little boy I have been going to Phillip lsland and enjoyed it every time. I believe that all these can help me with the coastal ambassador job.
Communication is used in many places and it will be needed for the job of Coastal ambassador. I believe I have good communication skills because I get along with many different people and I have played many team sports which need good communication. I have also been in Tournament of Minds which involved working as a team, communicating with lots of people about taking on every ones ideas. I believe all of this will help with the role of coastal ambassador.
Organizational skills are used in the role of Coastal ambassador. I believe I have this skill because I can meet due deadlines when I do my homework. In the tournaments of minds you organise costumes, scripts, props, etc. Making these and taking care of these objects involves organizational skills.
In the role of coastal ambassador you need to be open to new ideas. I am always open to new ideas in class and when I do other things in school. When I was an SRC representative and a Green Team member you always needed to be open to new ideas because everyone has a great idea that can help. Also in SRC and Green team you need to think of ideas for making our school better in whatever way possible.
