Hi, bhabytart! For my students, June 1 was the last day of school. Their graduation is on June 2 - today. We teachers are here for a couple of half-days to clean out the classrooms. We'll be returning in late August. I wonder why there is such a difference.

Oh ya, i can still remember briefly the first day i went to school when i was very young that time. It was standard one and it was the first day i went to school, with my mum's companion. I was so scared at that time when i saw so many people there in the class, and also a lot of 'strangers' (other students and parents) there too. Some of them seems very happy and excited while some also like me, a bit shy and scared of the new environment. I was so scared and shy too to talk or intereact with others in the class. I just sat quietly at a corner and keep looking outside to see whether my mum was still there. However, i started to calm down after sometime and started to look around. The class seemed noisy and not in control. I guess that time the there's no teacher around. That was the blury memories of mine on the first day of schooling. Soon after that i get used to the environment and start to enjoy in class and going to school.

Hello dear friend. You are starting to have the first day of the new school term, but we are almost close to the end of the spring school term. We will soon start to have our summer vacation from July to late August. We have a different school term, friend. When I was old enough to go to school, it was my elder sister who took me to the school for the first day and I was soooo afraid of the new school that I had to stay and study. I was timid like a mouse as a child for many years. I am glad that I have improved myself a lot after graduation from college... Right now I am looking forward to the arrival of the long summer vacation. Anyway enjoy your new school term, my new friend.
