My name is Damion Vries and I’m currently the Head boy of Dr Lemmer High school
My position as headboy has taught me to apply the five C’s in every aspect of my life and has kept me motivated since day one. They are being Committed, being Confident, being Courageous enough to take a calculated risk and hope for the best, having Control over your emotions and behaviour at all time and lastly keeping your Composure when faced with challenges and when under pressure.
My ambition in life is to become an engineer and my motto in life is “No one is going to hand me success, I must go out and get it myself!!!”
Exams can be a nightmare and a very scary experience for many, even for me, but being calm and focused really helps. Set a target in each subject and do daily revision.
Secondly draw up a study timetable and prioritize your time effectively, giving special attention to the subjects you struggle with.
Lastly thoroughly prepare for every exam and test, because “Failing to prepare, is like preparing to fail”.
I’ll leave you with Phil 4:13, I can do all through Him who gives me the strength. Remember “Don’t give up yet! It’ll get easier! Kidding.. from now on, don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re Done!!!
