Elite Training Camp 2017-18
 


Every year, an Adventurous Elite Training Camp is held to provide leadership development opportunities to a batch of student leaders from the Student Union, Chambers, and other Leadership & Services Programmes. This year, 28 of our student leaders joined a four-day wild adventurous training camp. Programmes include an introduction to leadership skills, team building games, water activities, high events and reflections. Through different tasks, students made a personal breakthrough and learned to understand and overcome their weaknesses. Besides, they enhanced their communication and coordination skills and most importantly realized the importance of teamwork. The qualities of being a good leader were sharpened.

I gained lots of precious experience and learnt the characteristics of being a leader in the Elite Camp. From different challenges, every moment was indispensable and important. I knew my strengths and weaknesses. I have also understood the importance of teamwork, communication and cooperation from the activities. I want to say thank you to teachers who gave me the chance to have this valuable lesson.

“Be the change you want to see.” It’s one of the most memorable quotes my mentor has given me in these 4 days. Life goes on, and problem will keep on blocking our path to success like rowing boats through waves in the ocean. It causes us to change our routes unwillingly. But it’s our job to ensure that we stay on the right track, be brave and persevere, to change and improve the situation we are facing. Above all, the most important thing to do when facing challenges is to support our teammates. In this camp, I experienced the true meaning of team work and team spirit. We should not only support each other physically and mentally, but to do more when your teammates cannot do, lend a helping hand whenever you can. It’s always easier when there are people around to support and help each other along the way. It’s also important to build a positive vibe in the group, and allow teammates to feel less pressured. Always fight towards the same goal as a team with bravery, perseverance, positivity and never fear failure. This is what I have learned in the camp, and I hope to spread this message in the school.

這四日三夜的經歷讓我明白到即使困難看似不能跨過,但是有著同伴的支持和鼓勵,得到的力量能讓我們更容易戰勝難關。
在行山、爬橡皮艇時,有賴同伴的互相扶持,互補不足,我們才能完成任務,到達終點。
無論將來我與組員在學校帶領活動時遇到任何困難;或獨自一人遇上挫折時,我都會堅持下去,咬緊牙關。 也許遇上的困難與這次的完全不同,過程或許更漫長,但我相信只要付出多一份努力、多一份堅持、多一份忍耐,就能克服困難。

在這四日三夜的訓練營裏,每天都面臨各種各樣的挑戰,每天所得到的也不盡相同。對於「領袖」這一方面,我獲益最多。在第二天的攀山活動中,每人都要擔任領袖的角色,帶領組員走一段山路,當時大家都會為自己的選擇是否正確而感到迷茫。情況就好像領袖做決定後,即使錯了,也會有一群好隊友在身後支持自己。再者,其實根本沒有所謂「錯」的決定,作為領袖,就是要將「錯的」帶到終點;即使錯了,到了無路可走的時候,就自己另闢蹊徑,帶領團隊走到終點。
此外,最令我印象深刻的就是教練勸喻我們的種種。他曾問我們認為「人多好辦事」還是「人多手腳亂」。作為領袖,我們就要團結隊伍,讓「人」成為更有效的條件,而非阻礙我們的絆腳石。作為領袖,我們不應一味指責,反而要以言語作為媒介,鼓勵其他人,讓自己的隊伍更團結、強大。
我希望能將在訓練營的點滴與他人分享,讓我們的團隊更出色,也讓同學更了解作為領袖的條件。
