My first few days at Challoner’s were great. It took three days to get used to where everything was and to find out what to do, but I eventually got the hang of things. I especially like sports; I tried out for the football and rugby teams. I also joined the Student Journalist Team and getting involved in school life really helped me through my first week. I also took particular interest in some subjects like English and Geography, and activities like UKSA helped me get to know my classmates even better and develop some strong bonds. Eventually, I was able to not only keep on top of all my work, but was also able to enjoy it. School matches and fixtures kept me busy, and the canteen always had something great to enjoy. I can’t wait for what else Challoner’s has to offer for me in the future.
