Changing from Primary school to Secondary school will probably be the biggest step in life your ever going to have to take. I find out which Secondary school I’m going to go to on Tuesday. Sometimes the school that you would want to go to may mean you will have to be separated from your closest friends that you have grown up with.
Sometimes changing schools just means your growing up and its the time when you need to start over and try new things (well that’s how I see it), the main thing is your at school to learn. Changing to Secondary does mean harder and more challenging work, all that means is that we have grown up and everyone thinks we are ready to take on more harder challenges. I realized that when I was walking around all the different schools everything looked so big and more modern. There’s nothing wrong with that but at the moment it will feel different to us, think about it, if your one of those people who are in Year 6 in only a couple of months we will be in a total other school with other people and new friends.
Making new friends probably won’t be easy because you don’t know them. You don’t know what they are like and you wouldn’t want to be in the wrong crowd. My advice is be friendly and try to understand each other, find your similarities and differences. Try to look as presentable as you can and be CONFIDENT, believe that you can do it! But be careful who you make friends with make sure they are safe and trustworthy.
Turning over a new leaf. Most of us would want to start over and be who you truly are because sometimes we pretend to be someone else to get someone to like you. I have recently discovered that being myself makes people like me more, for example: the boy I have a crush on, ever since I started to be myself he started to like me! Being yourself isn’t always a bad thing, if anything it’s the best because that’s why god created you. Changing yourself to be someone else isn’t going to help anyone, but changing from someone you aren’t to being someone you are will help you 110%.
Don’t believe in movie eg: High School Musical, although it’s a great movie not all of it is entirely true. Especially not breaking out into a song every moment you can! I can tell you one thing (even though I’m not in secondary yet) that Secondary School will make you feel as comfortable as you were in Primary.
Good Luck to all of you who are about to go into Secondary! I hope you feel welcome and safe. Please comment if you have any queries about starting Secondary, I’ll try my hardest to help. Thank you for reading this!
