Leader ship retreat Reflection

We learned a lot of things in the leader ship retreat. We learned how to work as a group, how to talk in front of the audience and what we are going to do in GINCAS. I am the leader of the group PLAY (Plant Life Around Yokohama)

In the group PLAY we are going to plant life around our school and Yokohama. Im pretty sure that we will have problems and concerns but I am looking forward to our actions and success. We have a few goals for our group to achieve until the end of the year.

  1. Find permission regarding which areas we are able to plant our saplings and seeds.
  2. Care for the already planted green life in our community (water them, tend them etc).

These are our main goals. After achieving these goals we have more goals to achieve.

  1. Plant a minimum of 10 trees and plants before the next semester beings.
  2. Have monthly excursions to parks and areas where we are able to plant green life.
  3. Start planting trees and such in our school campus.

So far we have those ideas but as we achieve them we would like to make new goals and keep on going on. I am looking forward for another great year in GINCAS and keep on having fun with my buddies in PLAY.

We are PLAY, planting green life Block by Block.

Gin Cas Project

Today in our class we had done a project and done a presentation about four subjects of skills. And we chose our team out of 17 goals to achieve. I had chose the 14th one which is the one to save dead fishes in the sea. Who my group is Yuki in 7th grade and Juan in 8th grade. Our goal for our group is to take as much of garbage around the ocean and take them so we can have less fishes being dead.

The origin of the group PLAY

Today on the leadership retreat, we were able to pick our selected groups regarding the global goals. All along, I’ve been interested in environmental health and been against deforestation. I along with several other members decided to form a group known as PLAY. (Plant Life Around Yokohama) Our goal and intention is┬áto populate our local community with planting plants resulting in the growth of green life in Yokohama.

We are all anxious to get the project starting, however there are certain things and near goals that we must achieve in order to begin our project. Such as:

  1. Find permission regarding which areas we are able to plant our saplings and seeds
  2. Care for the already planted green life in our community (water them, tend them etc)

Once these 2 MAIN goals are achieved, we will then be able to:

  1. Plant a minimum of 10 trees and plants before the next semester beings
  2. Have monthly excursions to parks and areas where we are able to plant green life
  3. Start planting trees and such in our school campus.

Overall, I’m very excited to begin our project and take forward the idea that I’ve been interested for a long period of time, I’m also very excited to see how this group will be able to work together in order to achieve all of our goals set today.

We are PLAY, planting green life Block by Block.
