Some of our more senior girls recall this very special day in Junior Infants
My First Day of School
On my first day of school,
I got up feeling good, feeling good about going to school
After I had my uniform on , I felt proud.
I was going to be a big girl now
“I will be able to add 2 and 2 .
After my mum had dropped me off at my line
All I could hear was, guess what crying.
I felt like every other person was crying ,
Finally when all that was over we played with toys,
I thought we could play with them forever
Work was boring , but before we knew it was time to go home
My First Day of Junior Infants by Ava
On my first day, I cried and cried the whole day until all my spirit was gone away. And then, about an hour later, I looked up and then my teacher was there teaching away. Then I realised I had been crying the whole day but still I made good friends on my very first day!
My First day of school by Sophie
On my first day of school I missed my mum so much. I cried a little bit but then I went off and played with toys. I drew a picture of my mum and showed it to my teacher. I went around playing with people. After my mum picked me up and she got me sweets for being a brave girl. And after all school wasn't so bad.
My First Day of School by Lily
On my first day of school my mom walked me to my line and I pushed her away because I thought I was so cool in big school.
And when we all got in to the class Ms McManus came in and whispered something to my teacher. I put up my hand and said " Whispering in company is bad manners" !
