In English literacy this week, our facilitator gave us a topic and some source related to the topic to research about. The topic was”Schools should stop the practice of giving letter grades to students. Instead, they should only give written feedback”. There is two ideal side in which they are Agree and Disagree. This is kinda like a MUN/Debate or we can call it Philosophical Chairs. It is a process which you can change side if you feel like it. There are so many students to want to stay in the middle(abstain) but we only have two choices so we choose what side we think is better. It was an equal side. For me, I kinda agree to eliminate this topic because When the kid gets an F on their test, there is a chance that their parent might not be happy with them. They will either receive punishment or get blame for it. This will lead to the child having no hope and courage to continue story. It was a very fruitful and respectful debate as we listen to each other point and ask some question. I think that this is a very debatable topic and that this is kind of a real problem in this world. Tell me what side you’re in(Agree or Disagree) and tell me some valid reason.
TEST!!! When some people heard this word, They think it is the worst thing ever. But not for math lover! Last week in Math class, We were told that we have to take a small test. After hearing this, I felt so happy that I know I could scream right at the time. I have been waiting for a math test so I could know what could I improve. Now, There was a challenge I put myself into… DO NOT REVIEW ANYTHING! Days went by and I can’t wait to take the first test in the school year ever. When the test day came, I knew that I was ready to put my effort into completing the test and ace it. After 10 minutes of changing, thinking, doing multiplication, and also time the number, I finish the test and open the other tap to see the score… I GOT ONE QUESTION WRONG! I was glad that I have a problem to improve! When I finish looking at the grade, I went to look at the incorrect question and There I knew I got that wrong because of my own confusion. Now, I have something to improve on and looking forward to mastering the problem itself.
Have you ever been to MUN? Now, I am participating in Ispp Mun which is coming soon! I am the Delegate of The Republic of Kazakhstan. I am in General Assembly 1. There are 3 topics in my committee. They are; The Question of using Biological weapons and Biological warfare, The Question of security against Cyber Warfare, and The Question of the use of Artificial Intelligence in warfare! If you don’t know what is MUN, MUN is short for Model United Nation! It is an educational activity which student are given countries and
problems to research and solve together. For some people, MUN is easy but for some… it challenging! Imagine you’re sitting in a classroom with 2 Chairs(not the actual ”chair” but they are someone who leads us) with some students from different school. The Chairs are the one in control of your action. Even if you want to use the bathroom, you need to ask them first! For me, It’s pretty normal. Because I like to meet new friend and the best part is that I get to see some of my old friend from last year MUN! Until October 27th, I still got a lot of time to write resolutions(papers with solutions for each problem). I am proud to declare that I have finished my Opening Speech for The Republic of Kazakhstan. And here it is:
Good Evening Honorable Chairs, Courageous Delegates, and Respectful Guests. The delegate of The Republic of Kazakhstan is very concerned about all of this issues that are happening right now! Delegates, this is a threat to all nations across the world and we should contribute to solving these matters. The Republic of Kazakhstan has never pursued a Biological warfare program and acceded to the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) in 2007. However, its territory was used extensively by the Soviet government for research, production, and testing of biological warfare agents. The country is also trying to build a cyber shield against a cyber threat to counter-recruiting and propaganda online. Indeed, Kazakhstan is trying to build robots but it was not meant for war. Yet, the country builds it for HealthCare purpose only. The delegate of the Republic of Kazakhstan is ready to come up with some ideas and support all delegates to create a fine resolution. Thank you
In Multimedia today, We learn about programming. For the first session, We discuss about the question of ”What is programming?” We then explain it to the whole class. After explaining, we got to do an activity which a player hold a piece of paper with drawing in it. That player is called player 1. He/She is the person who is gonna tell the other person what to draw. BUT He/She cannot point or act it, He/She can only describe it in words. Player 2 are the one who listen to player 1 and draw the pictures. There are bunch of pictures of cow, sheep, zebra, pig, and much more! After playing a bunch of time, we stop and look at other drawings. Now, you might ask yourself “Why is the drawing game related to programming?”. Well, Programming is the process of coding and controlling the computer. In this game, Player 1 acted as the programmer or the coder. Player 2 act as the computer! Without Player 1, Player 2 wouldn’t have any information so He/She will just stay still.

Have you ever read a meaning of a story so different from the actual story that you thought it was a mistake? Well, This Friday in Hannah’s class, we were reading a story that was written by Roald Dahl. The story name was ”Poison”. The story goes like this, a guy name Tim live with a guy name Harry. When Tim return home, Harry told Tim that there a snake on his belly. Tim couldn’t see it because Harry body was covered in blanket. Then Tim proceed to call Dr.Ganderbai. He was describe as a little Indian man. He came and manage to shoot a syringe into Harry’s body. After a while, He use a liquid that would freeze the snake. After waiting for about 15 minutes, he then tell Tim to get ready and pull the blanket. When they both pull it, all they see was nothing. Harry said that the snake might go into his pyjamas and when Dr. Ganderbai heard that, he started to get ready to strike the snake again. For a moment later, Harry jump out of the bed as if he got bitten. But when he stop, there was nothing there. Dr. Ganderbai said that Harry need to relax a bit because he might be day dreaming. Harry then said that Dr. Ganderbai thought he was lying and he call him “a dirty little Hindu sewer rat!”.
After reading this story, some people said that this story is a story based on racism. For more informations to understand, As I describe in my summary”Dr.Ganderbai was describe as a little Indian man”. Who would describe him in such a way? Some also believe that this is just a story about a guy who want to seek revenge on someone. Well, for me I believe that this story is about people being racist to other people from different nations.
Hi, I’m Sum VicheathChornson. I am a 13 year old junior student studying at Liger Leadership Academy. I came here last year. I live in Phnom Penh with my mom. Liger is a school located near Takmao. Liger mission was to change their student into Change Agent of Cambodia. Now let take a wonderful and relaxing journey into my documentary about my second year at Liger. As you might know… Cambodia is slowly developing its economic, agriculture, education, infrastructure and etc. Cambodia has a lot of hard-working people who try to develop the country. I believe that even if you are a small kid, you can make a small change to Cambodia also. Sometime We don’t have to make big change at the moment but we can start of by doing little things. What little thing you may ask? Well, why don’t you start off by picking up plastics that were left on the street, help the elders and more than what my mind can think of right at this instant moment. Another example is that RIGHT NOW, You are making change to your mind by reading or listening to this. And I can promise you that you will think different after hearing and reading about my HICC. Now let talk about change. You see, we can all make change to our country if we have collaboration. There are people fighting against the discrimination and making it equal. There are also people going around the provinces talking and telling people about Gender Equity. Now this is all the thing that we called CHANGE! And for me, I make a bit of Change to Cambodian citizen. I changed people mind by making them think in different ways. And down below is the prove that I have change the Gorgeous and Amazing citizen of Kingdom of Cambodia. There are elders who has a hard life working for their children life. But some elders were afraid or shy to tell their hard life to their children. I was in one of the exploration called”Human Of Cambodia”. Human Of Cambodia was inspired by The Human of New York. Human of New York is a website created by Branton Stanton . He goes around the world asking for people stories. After looking at the fabulous stories. We decided why don’t do it like him but with Cambodia citizen! SO in this exploration, we learn how to make website and interview people for their story. Our Mission was to get a quote from the people we interview. And We also write stories about them. We wanted the next generation to know that people work hard to get money. As both of my eye can see, now Teenager in Cambodia usually use drug or hang out with their gang. I feel like this things is wrong because to develop Cambodia we need the people who work hard. We change our country with people that has knowledge and the courage to work hard. Especially, People who has Faith In Humanity will be the right one to make changes. Not with people who use drug, steal people stuff or destroy people properties. Now enough of this chaotic, let’s get to the Interview part. As we interview, we don’t have to write any script at all. We want to make connection with them much more easier rather than going to them holding a piece of paper with all of the question in it and ask the question in their form. For us, we just went to ask them some very simple question and then we followed with more complex one. Then as we get to know them and they gain trust from us, we started to get in deeper and deeper into their life story. People gave really great quote about their life like this one” I work hard because of people discrimination”. This quote mean that the person who told the story work hard because of people who make discrimination happen. They are working to eliminate Discrimination. They don’t do this intentionally. They do it because they care! Also, There are sad, happy and life quote we got from people. I feel like in this exploration, me and my friend has taught people to be brave. To share their story to stranger because they want them to know how hard people works. Also to stand for themself and speak. Let make our country a better place, shall we? Lady and Gentleman, Future Change agent of Cambodia… This is will be the end of this essay and I shall say that this is only one small step of changing Cambodia for me. And I’ll promise you that I will make better changes next year and Next year is gonna be different.
