mmm….Only recently turning
fifteen my life hasn’t been that eventful as such.
Birth. Quite simple…. the Decipher you know was
born… oh except he was born two months early… Which I was lucky to not get brain
Decipher posing for the
Primary Education. At primary school, nothing too
interesting. I did get very good SAT results, the best the school had at that
Secondary Education. Found this very enjoyable.
Enjoyed most lessons, had good friends, generally very nice. At this point I
also realised I had a love for water sports. I was very devoted to my kayaking
and have excelled to such a level that I am now teaching the younger pupils in
my school (capsizing kids in cold water is sadistic but fun).
Recently my school has moved into a hypermodern building with over 2000 PCs and
laptops, walls made of glass and brand spanking new facilities. This does help
with the work but does help me pursue my interests of computer photo
manipulation and editing as well as amateur flash animation.
Also took part in the school's gifted and talented programme, which was when
exceptional (yay!) students are gathered out and their potential is nurtured. I
found it very enjoyable, especially since the coordinator (also my enterprise
teacher) is a member of the British TA as a bomb disposal officer and is very
interesting and a very good conversationalist (I can remember talking to him
about the cold war giving birth to the Darfur conflict and Al Quadea, as well as
the motivations for building the nuclear bomb). In this gifted and talented
programme we performed various tasks, such as the hypothetical relocation of
Copenhagen (supposedly to improve our problem solving skills) as well as going
on character building adventure trips. As well this (and not to sound arrogant/
like I normally do) I unwittingly became a role model for the younger members of
TSI (Talented Student Iniative). As such I have a reputation in the younger
years of my school, which I am not sure how to react to, though normally I am
quite civil towards my minions they can be quite troublesome.
Above I also mention "Enterprise Lesson". I’m afraid this isn’t the theory of
Star Trek (sorry Trekkies) but is as "Mr Bomb Disposal Hassell" puts it
"Learning to Learn". We develop skills in this lesson that can be used in all of
our other subjects, and is something our principal credits to our remarkably
improving GCSE grades (5 years ago London Academy was the 5th worst school in
Britain, now it is within the top 2%).
In school now I hope to achieve good GCSE grades and move on to do A-Levels in
6th form (preferably Media Studies, English Lit, History, Critical
