Hi everyone, my name is Priscilla Julietta and I’m from grade 8A at SHB 3. I wanted to tell you about my SFH (Study from home) experience at Harapan Bangsa.
Since my second semester in Grade 6 until now, I have been studying from home because of the Covid-19 pandemic. At first, I was getting depressed and stressed because of so many assignments, but in junior high at SHB I’ve been getting less depressed because the teachers are like my parents. They give us motivation to be more confident, and also the teachers are very kind, supportive, communicative and funny to help ease our stress. This includes my English teacher, Mr. Damien, who is one of the teachers that gives me and my friends motivation. Learning online can be frustrating for teachers and students, but he always makes us happy again. There are other teachers that can also make my friends and I laugh or be more communicative, such as Ms. Brigit, who is my physics teacher, my Mandarin teacher Laoshi Li Kai, my computer teacher Mr. Simon, and many more.
Sometimes since the start of the pandemic it was like I couldn’t feel any emotions so I couldn’t be happy, sad or even mad. But my teachers here at SHB have helped to make me happy again by sharing jokes and making lessons fun so that I am able to laugh hard.
And I don’t have to worry and stress so much about my assignments anymore because I’ve already made a commitment to myself to finish all of them before the deadlines. Being more organised and having the support from my teachers has made me more comfortable with my studies and happier with studying from home.
