I consider school life the best part of my childhood. It not only gave me lifelong friends but also taught me several lessons. I spent most of my school days studying at a school called PEN School in Delhi. I vaguely remember my kindergarten school days as I was only about 5 years old when I first joined the school; so, I would like to talk about my first day at PEN school. I switched schools after first grade and joined there in my second grade, studied until I finished ninth grade in the same school. It was in a small town in North Delhi encompassed by greenery, with a huge sports division, only a kilometre away from where I lived. It had the best teachers and seniors who inspired us to participate in quizzes, art competitions and sports.
My first day there was nothing short of a roller coaster ride. I was looking for my classroom when I went astray but my then Science teacher helped me find it and made sure I was in the right room by checking my timetable. Later, my class teacher introduced me to my classmates and I was quickly greeted by them. They welcomed me to join them during lunch and played games thereupon. I was surprised with the kind welcome I received on my very first day in the school.
I was extremely apprehensive the moment I entered the classroom I was assigned to as I was the only new pupil in the class, and everyone seemed alien to me. However, helpful teachers came to my aid and friendly classmates calmed me assuring me of the good environment. I felt happy to have joined the school that made sure every student was valued and taken care of.
