It was my first day of school and I was excited. Even though I hadn’t been to kindergarten or pre-school, I was excited. Going to school looked so fun on TV, so I was pumped.
As Mum dropped me off, she gave me a kiss goodbye. “Have fun at school today.”
I smiled back at her, confident that I wouldn’t disappoint her. Kids surrounded me, rushing off to their classes. Despite being a little nervous, I was ready; I knew that school was going to be a blast. Quickly lining up at my classroom, I looked around at the kids around me. A handful were talking in loud voices while a pair spoke in hushed tones. Everyone else was silent, unsure in the crowd of unfamiliar faces.
