The Grade 11 and Grade12 learners attended a mind training workshop facilitated by Samuel Lekalakala from the Universityof Johannesburg.
SOME FEEDBACK FROM LEARNERS ON THE MIND TRAINING WORKSHOP
Everyone has the ability to use their mind, but how efficiently are you actually using your mind? This was the question posed to the Grade 11’s on Tuesday during the Mind Training Workshop. The thing that stood out for me is the fact that our thinking shouldn’t be along the lines of “I need to do this” or “I have to do this” but rather have the mindset of “I want to do this!”
There were many important aspects raised during the training. The one that had an impact on Dhanishta Andrews was, “It doesn’t matter what you have in life. All that matters is your determination and the effort that you put into achieving your goals.”
We as the learners would like to thank everyone involved for organising this workshop and I believe that there was something for each of us to learn from it. Dhriti Makanjee (Grade 11.1)
The Mind Training workshop is a programme run by the University of Johannesburg with the aim of increasing the number of distinctions produced by matric learners in Gauteng. They enlightened us about how the mind really works. Through a dynamic presentation, which included informative and thought provoking visuals, we were educated about the subconscious or unconscious mind. I learnt how to use my brains capacity optimally and I learnt a few tips which would improve my memory. We were told to carry out a 21 day programme . By following the necessary steps, we would reap the benefits of the mind training. This would ultimately assist the matrics in preparing for our finals. I found Nick Vujicic’s ‘ 10 Rules for Success’ particularly relevant as I prepare for final exams. Many of my peers felt motivated to achieve more at the end of the presentation. I believe that the mind training programme will prove to have a positive impact on the matric results. Sapna Fakir (Grade 12)
