  1. I have not had any contact with my father since my parents separated just after my first birthday. A few months ago a friend him in another country. I now have the opportunity to make contact which I have been holding back from. This weekend I will place a phone call and see what comes of it.

  2. I have an opportunity that’s to lead a purposeful development program for backward student. The program aims at upgrading their knowledge and skills, then to enable them to catch up with ordinary students.  I am seriously thinking of taking this opportunity-which is a good thing to do for my career. If I decide to take it I will plan to upgrade backward students not only to an ordinary level, but also to an outstanding  level, that would be a good example of applying CVS to BVS.
