Experience is the knowledge we gain from our past. It is, without a doubt, the best teacher. My school is where I have gained the most experience.

The first time I went to school, I cried a lot and I hated going there every day. But after a while, I made some wonderful friends and since then, I love to go to school. The teachers are also friendly.

I liked all the subjects taught in primary school, but I had a severe dislike for history.

I used to fear the exams at the end of each month, but I would get good marks. I learnt that fear does not take you forward. One needs to face fear to do so.

School is not only a place to study, but also a place that helps us learn, entertain, play and learn the fundamentals of life. We are taught the importance of good manners, discipline, honesty, equality, respect, cooperation and team spirit.

School is never a bore. Friends and the choices you make it a great experience.
