Extracts from this document...


My First Day at school The rain was pounding against my window as I awoke at the 'ungodly' hour of seven thirty. It was bad enough that I had to be there for 9 AM.

As I finally dragged myself out of the comfort and security of my bed, I felt the cold as I rushed to get a shower. I didn't really want to go, but something inside me told me I should; it would be for the best. Today wasn't just my first day at school; it was the start of a journey.

I actually like algebra, but other people in the class looked sad because they found algebra hard. Mr Singh started asking questions but from all thirty students there were only a few students including me who actually knew the answer... "I felt proud" It was only a few minutes left for home time and I was so excited like all the other students. I was told my dad would pick me up, so when the bell went, I went outside and waited for my dad. I looked on my right and saw my cousin waiting for me and so I walked to the car After when I got dropped home I kept thinking everything that happened on that day and I realised that the school was good for me, teachers were teaching much better than previous school and overall I liked the school.
