  2. My summary must be the most boring ever. It can be summarised in one words. Boring. Nothing ever happens in my short reign. Strategies? Pray that class proceeds as normal. It works 90& of the time. So just pray. Most important thing to take away? Well, I realised that I don't know much about my class. Yeah, my summary ends now. Please do not take this seriously

    1. Sorry, the summary was skewed. So, the most difficult part of my job is trying to achieve sliece in the class. Strategies? Well, try to get attention of the chatter-boxes first. Then, issue your holy decree(ermm, this mean your command). It is the getting the attention part that is difficult. Everyone talks, talks and talks. Nobody give a damn about you and it is infuriating. Most important lesson? Being a class chairman is terrible. Some days are a bore, rest are a chore. Sigh..... My summary ends.

  5. 1) Making my friends stop talking.

    2) I asked for help from friends who were seating near those who were talking. Like that, I do not need to raise my voice or require much effort to maintain the silence. My tactic does not make so much fuss too.

  15. 1)The most difficult part of the job is part when we have to make our classmates and discuss.
    2)Strategies that have worked with me is that when a conflict starts we should tell the consequences of fighting in class to the person so he will feel guilty and apologise to the other person.
    3)The most important take away is that we should never feel that that as the chairperson get more advantages doesn't mean that they are enjoying.They have an even harder job as they have to watch the class for all subjects.

  20. The most difficult part of the job is when everyone is disorganised and they are out of control, probably when no teacher is in the class. The classmates will not listen to most of the things you say and tell them to do when it happens. The solution is for the Chairman to inform a teacher ASAP when things get too far or when a teacher is not in the class for 5 minutes, whichever happens first.

    When a conflict or fight break out, people will be interested to know what happened and they will crowd around the place where it is happening, which makes it very hard for the Chairman and Vice Chairman to settle what happened. My solution for this is to tell them to settle down and continue with their own work, and tell them that we will roughly tell them what happened afterwards.

    The most important thing I learnt from this is that the Chairman and Vice Chairman's role is very important and difficult to satisfy everyone. We should always respect them and listen to what they say unless it is inappropriate.

    There was no difficult part of the job other than yun hui who kept talking to me about keeping everyone quite when the noise level was reasonable.

    Nothing happened that day and the class was quite good that day hence no strategies used except......

    3) We have to respect the chairperson and vice-chairperson.

  28. 1)Remembering that I was vice chairperson of the day (I really forgot half the time...).

    2)N/A (that day was very peaceful)

    3)Being a chairperson/vice chairperson is not easy, I know it was just by luck that day was without any issues. I think we could be more harmonious as a class.
