I am a Primary Six student in De La Salle School. I enjoy going to school because I have many friends. However, I still remember how frightened and lonely I felt on my first day at school.
That morning, my mother drove me to school. I felt frightened when I saw so many students running about in the school field.
I joined a queue and was brought into Class 1A by my teacher, Mrs. Devi. I was in tears when my mother left. Many of my class-mates were also crying and Mrs. Devil had a hard time pacifying us. She played some games with us to make us talk about ourselves. Soon, I got to know a few friends.
Suddenly, we heard a bell ringing loudly and we started packing our things. However, Mrs. Devi told us it was only a break and led us to the canteen. I was glad to see my mother waiting for me with a bowl of prawn noodles. As I ate, I told her about my new friends.
After recess, another teacher came into our class and we sang nursery rhymes.
At the end of the day, I was no longer frightened or lonely. My parents were glad when I told them I was looking forward to going to school the next day.”
