How many of us remember our first day at secondary school. I remember it well.....I can recall what I worn, who I was with, what we had to do. It was......
8.15am, I stepped out of the house in my new school uniform armed with my new oversized school bag to meet with two school friends.
Growing up in West London meant we had a choice of secondary school. We lived within a short walking distance of four secondary schools, so we didn't all get into the school of choice and we only moved onto secondary school with a handful of friends from primary school.
We entered the large school hall together... sat in a chair (no more school floor) and waited. We each waited to hear our name. All three of us were called out - we were lucky to have been put into the same form class together. It was a big thing then and is still a big thing now.
Luckily nowadays (at least in our village) they try to make the transition from primary to secondary school as smooth as possible so they know before they start secondary school who they will share a form class with. It lessoned the worry for him and I'm sure this would have lessoned the worry for me way back when.
This is him on his first day of secondary school. September 2013. This year he will enter year 9 - or year 3 as it would have been for some of us.
Carrying on from my previous post I wanted to stay with the strong darker background colour.
It's the first time I've used textured paste and the effect is fabulous. It so easy to use and gives your
layout a little dimension. I'll be using it again soon.
Care to share your first day at secondary school?
Although my memories of my first day are still quite vivid I do wish I had a photo
