My first day in UK School

by Sabrina

My first day in school was very important to me. To me, it was an unforgettable day. I was very nervous since it was a new school to me. School life in the UK was quite different from school in Somalia.  I was amazed that I was able to take my phone since it was not allowed there.

I was nervous as it was new to me.  I was admitted to government school near my house.  I entered the school premises with new hopes and aspirations.  I was glad that the school presented a new sight.  It was quite different from the previous school I went to in Somalia.  I came across many unknown faces.

I found all the newly admitted students in high spirits.  I moved around the school.  I was delighted to see the library of the school where I could find books on every subject.  The school laboratory excited my interest to perform experiments there.

I noted down the timetable of my class from the noticeboard.  I attended the classes, I found that the method of teaching is quite different from that back home.  Each subject is taught by a specialized teacher.  Teachers do not rebuke the students if they fail to learn their lessons.  They simply tell the students to b conscious of their responsibilities, The students find here a homely atmosphere which they lack back in Somalia. For this, they feel easy and comfortable here.

I felt a new rhythm of life and returned home with a mixed sense of duty and liberty.
