Throughout his journey to transform from the unknown, he showcases his courage to do the right thing in a variety of situations . Firstly, Newt climbs the dumpster to get the drum for his best friend , Cecil. At first, Newt who was afraid of heights did not want to do so. He was worried it may crush Cecil if it slips and drops. However, Cecil convinced Newt that only Captain Nobody could do the job. So, Newt decided to fulfil his friend‟s wish although it was diffi cult for him. In my opinion, Newt showed his courage to do the right thing here which is to help his friend. If I were Newt, I would do the same thing to make my friends feel happy.  Next, Newt showcases his courage by saving Ferocious the ferret  when he dashed onto the highway and screamed at the vehicles to stop in order to save Ferocious. No one was  brave enough to save the ferret except for Newt. He knew he must take good care of Ferocious because it was his school‟s football team mascot. In my opinion, Newt did the right thing to save Ferocious, which was a responsibility entrusted to him. However, he would not have been able to do so if he did not have the courage. Lastly, Newt climbs up the Appleton water tower to save Reggie Ratner.  Newt watches the news report about Reggie Ratner climbing to the roof of the Appleton water tower and he quickly made his way there. Even though he is afraid of heights, he courageously climbed the water tower to save Reggie. For a ten-year-old, in my opinion, his decision to climb the water tower to save another person who has nothing to do with him is the right thing to do and is very bold and extraordinary. In a nutshell, as we can see from the evidences above shown by Newt, we must have courage to do the right thing. By doing so, it will help us to grow stronger and face challenges in life. By : Najma Hayati and Nurul Hana   MELAKA “We must have the courage to do the right thing”   Based on the novel that you have read, provide incidents from the novel that support this  statement.   THE ENGLISH PANEL SMK AGAMA PAHANG 2016 © https://epsmkap.wordpress.com 3 Based on the novel Captain Nobody written by Dean Pitchford that I have studied, a quality about conquering fear has been portrayed by the main character of the novel  –    Newton Newman. Newt was characterized as someone who is timid and afraid of height, but somehow succeeded in conquering his fear . This quality is shown many time throughout the story. First things first, Newt climbed the dumpster to get the bass drum for his best friend . At first, he was reluctant because he was scared of heights but he convinced himself that Captain Nobody was a fearless hero. Even though climbing a dumpster does not seem that challenging, this event showed that Newt had succeeded in conquering his fear  . In my opinion, no matter what problems we will face today or tomorrow, if we have the courage to conquer our fear, we are able to overcome any difficulties in life.  Secondly, Newt climbed the Appleton Water tower to save Reggie Ratner . Reggie was hustled by Chris‟s teammates, and he decided to climb the Appleton water tower to spray  paint a sign in support of Merrimac High on the tower. Before he could carry out his plan, his foot broke through the rotten roof and got stuck. People assumed he was going to jump down and commit suicide. Newt showed his bravery by climbing up the tower. By doing so, Next found a new friend in the hulking Reggie Ratner. In my opinion, this shows us that being brave will allow us to make more friends easily. The third event was when Newt save Ferocious the ferret . In the mad tussle with Ricky Ratner and his friends, the ferret‟s  cage door flew open and Ferocious escaped. Captain  Nobody bravely diced with death several times on the highway to save Ferocious and ended up stopping four lanes of traffic. This enabled a plane with engine trouble to make a safe emergency landing. In my opinion, it is important to have the courage to save someone in trouble. This shows that being brave benefits us as we will be able to protect others especially our loved ones In a nutshell, Newt is a brave person. He tried to overcome his fear in order to help others. We should try to follow the examples shown by Newt because, as I have mentioned above, being brave benefits us in numerous ways. By : Rohaila and Nadhirah Aisyah   JOHOR “A brave man is not he who doesn’t feel afraid, but he who conquers fear”  With close reference to the text, describe how this is portrayed by one of the characters and explain how this quality would benefit you.   THE ENGLISH PANEL SMK AGAMA PAHANG 2016 © https://epsmkap.wordpress.com 4 Based on the novel that I have read in the literature component in form five which is titled „Captain Nobody‟ by Dean Pitchford, there are loads of events that showed the importance of standing up for what is right.  Standing up for what is right was portrayed when Captain Nobody retrieved the big bass drum from the top of the dumpster for Cecil . At first, Newt was deciding whether he should help Cecil or ignore the call but then decided to go and help him to get the drum  because he thought of his responsibility as superhero. If Newt had ignored his friend‟s call for help, maybe Cecil would have lost faith in him. In my opinion, Newt standing up for what was right was the best decision and that made his friends ’   faith in him became much  stronger  . That event truly showed that standing up for what is right is important. Other than that, Newt showed that he stood up for what was right in the event where he tried to chase Ferocious the ferret and unexpectedly made space for an aeroplane to land safely . When Ferocious ran away, Newt could have chosen to just leave it be but when he remembered that Ferocious was his responsibility, Newt decided to chase Ferocious  because that was the right thing to do. Newt stood up for what was right and at the same time he saved many lives in the aeroplane. In my opinion, if Newt had not stood up for what was right the aeroplane would have crashed and many lives would have been lost  . That event clearly showed that standing up for what is right is important because it can benefit us as well the people around us. The next event that showed how Newt stood up for what was right is when Newt saved Reggie Ratner on top of the water tower . When Newt saw on the news that Reggie who everyone believed wanted to commit suicide from the top of the Appleton water tower, he went straight to the scene to help Reggie and to tell the truth about who knocked out Chris  Newman. I think that if Newt had not decided to go and help Reggie which was the right decision, Reggie might have been stuck at the top of the Appleton water tower for a long time and the truth would have not been unveiled  . That event really showed that Newt stood up for what was right as Captain Nobody. As the conclusion, standing up for what is right is very important and it can also  benefit not only one‟s life but other people‟s lives too. By : Aiman, Arman and Aman   KEDAH  It is important to stand up for what is right. Discuss how this is portrayed in the novel you have read. Support your answers with close reference to the text.
