My SchoolDays

I have many precious memories of my schooldays.  There were many good teachers who cared for me and taught me well. My favourite lessons were English and History but I enjoyed other lessons too. My secondary school was a boys’ school in east London. We had lots of afterschool activities. We had gymnastics, choir and judo. I am really glad I tried these. One of the highlights of my school life was a time I went camping. We read maps to find the way to different places. My schooldays were a long time ago but I still remember them fondly.
