Max, de Year 12, guanya la Competició Global de Cognita “From my Window”

Ara que totes les escoles de la família Cognita impartint classes online, el Grup ha organitzat les Competicions Globals Cognita, una sèrie de competicions opcionals per a alumnes dissenyades per a oferir als alumnes l’oportunitat de connectar i compartir la seva creativitat amb tota l’organització.

Una d’aquestes competicions va ser “From my Window”, un retrat creat pels alumnes sobre el que veuen des de la seva finestra. Podia ser una obra de poesia, prosa, visual, musical o digital.

Maximilian, un alumne de Year 12 amb talent, va decidir compondre una cançó per a la seva classe d’Anglès i Mr Burns, el nostre Assessor de Benestar, la va inscriure en el concurs, que comptava amb creacions d’escoles de tot el món.

Dues setmanes més tard, Max va ser declarat el guanyador de la categoria Sènior!

Felicitats, Max! La teva cançó és preciosa i una digna guanyadora del primer lloc!

 

Maximilian, Year 12

«En la nostra classe d’Anglès, ens van demanar escriure una obra creativa sobre la quarantena i el confinament. Vaig decidir escriure una cançó i, un dia, em vaig sentir inspirat i van començar a sorgir-me les idees. Em vaig guiar per la idea que tot el dolent, tot obstacle en la vida, té un costat positiu. El missatge que volia transmetre en la cançó és que hem de continuar lluitant abans les dificultats i centrar-nos en el costat positiu per a sentir-nos realitzats i feliços.»

 

Ms Beth Kerr, Directora Global de Benestar de Cognita

«Ha estat tot un privilegi poder escoltar la teva cançó i llegir el seu missatge. Crec que, com tota bona música, podrà ajudar als altres, com els teus companys, a trobar les paraules exactes per a descriure el que senten però no sabien com expressar abans. Segueix amb la bona feina, Maximillian! No hi ha dubte que tens talent i el reconeixement de Mr Burns i la teva escola. Cuida’t molt i moltes gràcies de nou per la teva meravellosa cançó.»

 

 

Lletra

Wake up again its just another day now

Gotta stay in when im used to staying out

I feel like being productive but im just laying down

I feel like I can’t no more im going to say it loud

 

I want to see the sun but it rains now

The ceiling and the ground now is my main crowd

The pencil and the paper gets my pain out

My mind and the media screaming man down

 

On the edge of insanity

Beginning of infinity

Im calling my psychologist

Im falling like economy

I think about you being with me

Im feeling this affinity

ain’t gonna happen silly me

Please just end this misery

 

Its just another day feeling closed up

I tired of this monotony on non-stop

I wish that at this moment I could go back

I wish that time could speed up and just roll past

 

tired of this routine everyday is the same

Its like a dejavú over and over again

Everyday is a loop beginning till the end

Every wall in my house begins to feel like a fence

 

And im missing all my friends

The weekends and the games

The love the fun the pain

The joy the laugh the shame

The purposes the aims

The wind the clouds the rain

The parties, school and even

When a normal day begins

 

Its just another day feeling closed up

I tired of this monotony on non-stop

I wish that at this moment I could go back

I wish that time could speed up and just roll past

Its just another day feeling closed up

I tired of this monotony on non-stop

I wish that at this moment I could go back

 

Cambio

 

But today I woke up and something’s different

I was feeling magnificent no more feeling diffident

I Stopped for a moment every thought of indifference

I heard the angel whispering

 

Saying this could last forever

its bad but however

Theres a bright side whatsoever

Got to improve its now or never

Stay at home but stand together

Use your time wisely be clever

Work hard start getting better

Strike for greatness great endeavor

 

And I thought that he was right

Every darkness brings a light

There is more clarity on the sky

Theres more animals and life

Theres more stars to see at night

For a downfall brings a rise

Theres more time to exercise

Learn create and improvise

 

Maximize your productivity

Enjoy every activity

Enhance you creativity

Develop new abilities

 

So stand up from your bed get away

Start to do your passion and If you can’t find the way

Work harder every day never be afraid

What you do is not in vain so continue don’t complain

There will be a time and the moment to obtain

the world continues and we’ll see who took the pain

 

But kept fighting, stood up and made no excuses

The one that learns and not abandones when he loses

The one that chooses what he want and he produces

The one that uses his chances and never refuses

 

Cause its just another day feeling closed up

But this time ill keep working going non-stop

I know that you may want time to just roll past

But we can’t change it so we got to work hard
