St Kents New Entrants Day

It took a lot of nerve for me to speak to anybody, but when I finally did, I realized I had met a potential friend. I was sitting in the St Kentigerns chapel, with a heap of other kids entering year 9 next year. I didn't know anybody, and neither did the girl behind me, so I introduced myself to her politely. It was new entrants day, and that meant that we had our exams ahead of us. Which I wasn't exactly keen about.

My new friend Katy and I chatted for a bit, until a man walked through the chapel doors and told us to stand. From then on the day began. After he talked for a bit, then a man named Mr Gordons spoke to us, and split us into our groups. Fortunately I was in the same group as Katy. The groups we were put into were the groups we were going to be staying with for the rest of the day. I had a teacher by the name of Mrs Miller. She was very kind and polite, and I found her really cool.

When we arrived to our classes, our first subject we had to sit was English. It was fairly hard, but I thought I did well. Straight after English we sat the Reasoning test. This I found pretty hard, since I had never sat a test quite like it before. Then it was interval for 30 minutes. Katy and I hung out again, and I found out a lot about her. She happened to be Head Girl of her school down in Papakura. 

After Interval was over, we headed back into our class with Mrs Miller. This time we were sitting Mathematics, which for me was lucky, since I like the subject maths. As I turned the paper my fingers started to become more anxious as it was going to be our last exam for the day. I took my time with questions, and eventually got the end with an extra few minutes to spare. When time was up, we had a 2 minute talk with each other before we were released for lunch. S

Unfortunately Katy had to go for the rest of the day for her mothers events, so I was by myself. The rest of the day we played sports, and got to know the prefects a little better. At the end of the day, I found it alright. Aside from the fact that I was a bit to overwhelmed about everything in the beginning, it was okay. 

All I have to do is wait for another six more weeks at least, and I'll be attending the very school.

  1. Great to hear about your first day at St Kents Rita, I was wondering how it all went. I'm glad you've got to know somebody already too though I'm sure you will have lots of friends there before too long. It sounds like it was a full on day but it was great that you got to have a bit of fun at the end as well. I really liked your detailed account of it.
