Describe your first day at school
- Where it was?
- What happened?
- Explain how you felt on that day
I would love to tell you about my first day at school. Even though it is a bit difficult for me to recall all the memories, but I remember a few things vividly. It was the year 1992, and we used to live in Amritsar at that time.
I used to watch my elder sister going to school. Owing to this, I was always curious to go to school with my school bag and lunch box. It was a kind of dream for me.
Finally, my day came, and my mom dressed me well in the school uniform. I had a pinkish beautiful school bag with barbie design on it. I was super excited until my mother dropped me at school. Once I became alone, all the excitement was gone, and my elder sister found me crying outside her classroom. I do not remember what she said to me, but I felt better. I went back to my class, where I made new friends. Some of my classmates were from the same locality where I was living, so it was not difficult for me to settle down. I am unable to recall what I learnt that day, but my teachers let me play with other kids. I also played with my sister during the recess that day. It was the first time when I sat on the seesaw. Overall it was a beautiful day.
Follow-ups Questions of the topic Describe your first day at school
1. Do you think students should be taken to school by their parents or go by themselves?
It depends on the age of the child. I believe teenagers can go to their school on a bicycle or foot or a school bus. But children studying in primary school must be taken by their parents.
2. Should children rely on their parents or be independent?
I guess a child needs to learn a few things by himself. For example, if a child does not know how to urinate without his parents, how he/she will survive at school. However, we can not give complete independence to a child. If we give him/her complete freedom at this age, a child can be misguided easily.
3. How can children become more independent?
Parents should teach basic things like how to urinate when no one is around. Children need to learn how they can eat their food without the aid of their parents. Communication is a must between parent and children to make children stronger inside out.
4. What is the effect if parents interfere with children’s life too much?
Too much interference can impact the life of a child to a great extent. Children might start lying to his parents to hide things which parents do not want him/her to do. Therefore, parents should communicate wisely with their children instead of point out unnecessarily on everything.
