    Can you remember your first day at school?

    I can remember my school tie - UK compulsory uniform - was very tight and I could hardly swallow. But then I remember seeing this beautiful big play house at the back of the classroom and all these wonderful fairytale story books. Nothing else mattered after that, I fell in love with the place.

    Yes I remember my 1st day of school, although that is probably because I started school at age 6 instead of 5.

    I remember being told "Sit there for the present."

    I waited all day and didn't get a present and went home having learnt two very important lessons ..... 'Life Sucks and teachers lie !

    I do remember my first day of school.  It was Kindergarten, 55 years ago.  I parked my dinosaur and walked in. Never liked it though and that continued for the rest of my school years.  I just wanted to be home doing what I wanted, when I wanted.  School was to regimented for me.

    Hi Duffsmom, I know what you mean about shool. I loved primary school. But when I went to High School I loathed it. From then I also wanted to be free to do my own thing when I wanted to do it - I still do.
