Starting a new school can be challenging. (I should know)
Every school is different, but i believe i have enough experience in 'first days' in order to give you my top five tips for surviving you first day at school. (I promise i will try not to be that cliche!)
Here we go!!
1.) If you have a locker, then take as much as possible on the first day to save time and effort over the next year. However, if you do not have a locker, then only take what you need for each day, in order to spare your back from the torture of carrying round a bag all day.
2.) Each morning, arrive at school with plenty of time to spare, so you can get to know your way around and make use of any of the school's facilities if you need to. (Just don't get lost!)
3.) Pay attention to the push/pull signs on the building's doors, this will limit the amount of embarrassing red bumps on your forehead.
4.) If you do not have a 'buddy' or 'pal' to show you where to go on your first day, then i'm sorry, its up to you! Either find somebody with a timetable similar to yours and follow them around as much as you can, or spend the next two weeks asking for directions.
5.) TEACHERS ARE FRIENDS! NOT FOOD! I know that teachers at a new school can be intimidating, but, no matter what you think, or how much homework they give you, they are honestly trying to help. I promise :) Don't argue with them (unless you know your right ;) ) and make sure that they remember you for the good things, not the bad.
So there you have it, my top 5 tips to your first day at a new school.
