I, as well as hundreds of others, started back at school last week. I had my first official day of year eight and I can safely say I survived. In my family my brothers went back on Wednesday and then my sister and I started on Friday. It was a really busy week in our house but I think that we all had fun on our first day back at school.
The first day of high school was really daunting for me last year but this year it was as if it’s as just a normal day of school. I don’t know whether it was the fact that I had done transition last year for year eight or whether it was because I was ready for school but my first day of year eight was entirely stress free.
I think the most important part of having positive thoughts about going back to school is to look at the bright side. I thought about all the friends I would get to see after nearly two months of being apart. I thought about how by starting year eight I am one year closer to finishing completely. I also thought about how I would get six hours a day away from my siblings.
With only good thoughts in mind going back to school can be easy and even though many of us don’t want to leave the holidays behind, all you have to do is think of the weekends where you can have twice the amount of fun that was lost from school. School can be fun if you put your mind to it and remain positive.
Despite everyone saying that they don’t want to go back to school, I think everyone deep down wants to go back. Whether it’s for friends, learning or even to be one step closer to finishing, there is a reason to want to return. Personally I’m glad to be back at school because learning and socialising are two things I love the most.
