Back to school, to prove I'm no fool

 

 

 

LOVE it or HATE it the summer holidays have come to an end and school is back in session!

The school year always starts the same, as we’re ushered out of our beds and house and into the cars and school buses. As we get closer and closer till we take our first step through the school gates we run through the mixed bag of feelings and emotions in our head: the excitement of catching up with friends after the long summer break; the dread of homework; the hope of being in the same class as friends and the anxiety of meeting new people.

 

The start of school can be a complex flurry of emotions as we begin to settle into a new school, year or class. Often many of us begin to worry as the excitement dies down and questions begin to plague our head about who we will be sitting with, who will we be hanging out with, how strict is the new teacher and how hard will the new content be? This can turn the new school year into a very nerve wracking and stressful time.

 

Join us on Monday at 8PM AEST to share with us your excitement, joy and fears of starting the new school year and how to manage the stress

Welcome everyone!

 

For most of this summer holiday I was stuck at work but managed to escape for a couple of weeks! I went to the driving range quite a few times to learn how to swing a club and ate out a looot with friends. I also caught up on the summer block busters lile the hobbit and life of pi.

Re: Back to school, to prove I'm no fool

Hello everyone, I hope that you're all swell tonight!!

 

What are some highlights of you summer holidays. Well... My 'summer holidays' started in the Summer of 2011 (because I'm an oldie) had a gap year and I get back into the education next week. So (other than the working bit) it's been a long holiday (or at least I like to see it like that Smiley Tongue )
ANYWAY the highlights would be getting my kitten (seem silly, but he is a very important part of the family), travelling to Fiji, workshops and organising/creating my O week costumes.
