Hey guys welcome to this blog post in this blog post I am going to be talking to you guys about my secondary school experience. Although I have now left school and after the holidays are done I am going to be going to college I am still not going to state the name of my school because then it is still not safe.
The Germany trip happened in year 7. It wasn’t my favourite trip out of all of the trips I went on with my school but it was still fun, we even went to a chocolate factory which was really cool. We also took some cool photos and explored lots of different cool historical buildings in Germany which was really cool.
In year 9 or 10 I think I went to Spain with my school, I think it was in Year 9. Spain was 100 percent the best school trip out of all of the ones I had been on including the day out trips of course. We got to go to the beach which is one of my favourite things to do, I love the sun so it was great. We also got to go to lots of cool shops within the town which we were in, and when we went on this trip we were allowed to go off with our friends and just do some fun stuff . The shops were really unique and one thing which I really liked was having a nice meal with my friends in the sun. We also got to go on a boat and the sights were beautiful although I did get sea sick and I then puked over the side of the boat which wasn’t the best but it was one thing out of the whole trip. We got to go on a cable cart which was lots of fun, I remember how the teachers told everyone before we went on it to not try and shake our shoes off as a joke because we might not be able to find them again which I thought was quite funny. My favourite part of the Spain trip was when we went to a karoke bar obviously there wasn’t alcohol for us because we were young and we were with school lol. But I loved that because I love singing, and the karoke was a contest. I remember I sung let it be with one of my friends and then I sung rolling in the deep and I also sung another song and when I got nervous a really lovely girl in my year came on to the stage and sung along with me to give me confidence. It was just such a lovely atmosphere.
I cant quite remember when this was in year 9 and 10 because I cant remember whether the Spain trip was in year 9 and 10 but it doesn’t really matter. I loved the PGL trip, I love PGL you get to do lots of amazing activities. I also overcame a fear on this trip. I was so scared to do the Trapeze and the first time I did it I found it so hard because I was so scared because I looked down and that scared me. However I then went on a second time, didn’t look down and I just di it and I found that really cool. I had so much fun on this trip. To be honest all the school trips made me really happy, I loved going on them, they were always so much fun.
In my secondary school everyone in the year was in different forms and in these forms there were competitions which you did together, and when there was different school events people could volunteer and help out to raise house points. I was house captain with another girl in my form for two years which was pretty cool. But even when I wasn’t house captain with her I always loved to volunteer to help out at the big bake sale we had at our school every year, I also loved volunteering at fairs and other events that happened at the school.
Sport’s day, I liked it but I also didn’t. I liked doing sports because I love sport and I loved the competition, the competition and the amazing face paint. But some of the sports day’s were quite annoying because it would be super hot outside and you would be sweating lots from the heat. However overall I did really like the sports days because I love sports and I loved the overall idea of sports day.
Gym and Dance
In our school there was a GYM and Dance display every year. Sadly I only found out about the display in year 8 but from year 8 to year 11 I participated in this display every year. I think the first club I joined was tap and I did gymnastics the same year and I think I did that till year 10. In year 10 I just did tap and then when year 11 came around I did contempary, tap and senior dance however gym had been cut out of the display by this time and it was just dance. Gym and Dance was definetely a wonderful highlight in my school time, I had so much fun participating every year because of how much I love dance I did do dance outside of school as well and I still do dance out of school. As well as this I got really close with a friend through gym and dance and that was amazing because we shared the experience and that made me really happy and those are definetely memories I will not forget.
I did Silver DOE with my school. First we got put into our DOE groups which was cool because I feel like after having done the expedition together and all the planning in preparation for it I feel like I have gotten a lot closer with the people in my group which is really nice. I was really lucky because I liked all of the 4 girls in my group they were all really nice and we did get along well. Silver DOE was definetely hard physically and emotionally but I am glad I did it for the experience.
I was part of the year book committee and it was great fun. It was great to be able to do that because it meant that I had something to take my mind of GCSE’S which were really stressing me at the time. Plus I love righting and I definetely got a lot closer with some of the people in the year book committee who I hadn’t really talked to before which was super cool, and I feel like when you join clubs that’s a great way to meet new people as well as just getting to know people more.
My last day of secondary school
It was the last day of school and to be honest I was really excited. I didn’t really see it as a goodbye though because I knew that everyone was going to see eachother again at clearance day and I would also see a lot of people from my year at prom which would be the actual proper goodbye. However the last actual day of school at my secondary school was really fun. We got to sign each others t shirts, take lots of photos and the leaving assembly was really fun as well.
Throughout secondary school I can say that I 100 percent made some amazing friends who I am definetely going to keep in contact with, yes there was friendship drama’s and I did have some toxic friends who I cut out of my life during secondary school but it taught me something. It taught me a life lesson that if someone is a toxic friend do not keep being their friend because of the past or believing they will change, cut them off, they don’t deserve you, instead you should hang out with your real friends, your amazing friends that love, care and support you.
I was not in the prom committee because although I loved being in the year book committee obviously because they were both in year 11 I was focusing on my GCSE’S. However what I can say is that our prom committee did an amazing job, the prom was amazing. I know that I have already made a few blog posts about prom already but it was honestly one of the most amazing experiences of my life it was just so much fun. There was great food, music and it was just so fun to be able to experience the whole thing with my amazing friends who I love so much.
I hope you guys really enjoyed this post
