    Looking back, what was your favorite grade in school? Why?

    Many of us started school as early pre-school and continued for as long as a PHD! What was your favorite year? Why?

    Grade I was my favorite grade in school.  It was my first ladder in school way back in the year 1945.  It was the year when the country was freshly liberated from the clutches of the Japanese Imperial Army.  I consider myself fortunate because I was exactly aged 7 then in 1945 the resumption of classes after the dreaded Japanese occupation.
    Some of my classmates in Grade I were much older than me because the year they were supposed to be in school were closed because of the war.

    Grade I was where my senses were first opened.  We did rote singing and rote counting in unison.  We danced, sang and laughed.  We were very noisy  Then we do writing.  We did it fast with teacher counting.  It was meant to improve our writing skills.  Teacher supervised well our writing work.  She made it sure that we follow correctly how every letters of the alphabet were formed or written  We were able to write fast and well because of the good training.

    Truly my stint in Grade I in 1945 was made doubly memorable because I was very, very proud and felt superior over my classmates because I can do whatever I like from the teacher.  I remember I could let teacher draw a parrot repeatedly in my pad papers.  I really derived endless pleasure seeing the parrot drawings teacher made for me.

    Teacher never spoil me despite her love and understanding.  I remember a time when I did hurt a classmate.  With a coco midrib-broom, she castigated me in front of the class, in full view of my classmates.

    I sometimes longed for that year 1945 the year with my Grade I classmates, the year when our senses were honed with basic skills for our roles in later life.  I especially yearn doubly for the teacher who mothered us during that formative years. But teacher is now gone for she has joined the Lord's caravan of no return 27 years ago.

    Indeed she was more than a teacher to me because she happened to be my mother.  Mother, I pray do rest in peace with father and sister Ida and with the Lord. Amen.

    Senior year of high school.  The world looked so exciting and I was beginning what I thought of as an adult life.  I really sat back and enjoyed the entire year realizing it was the end of a very unique time and something that I would later cherish.

    Either grade 4 or 5 both were a really fun time. We did some work and had lots of fun! At that time I pretty much understood everything. In later grades it was more difficult for me.

    I think I liked the 3rd grade and the 7th which is the final year in primary shool back home.The 3rd was the easiest and I was flying through school work,no problems on the way.I had my best friend by my side and we used to secretly think we were our handsome teacher's 'girlfriends' :-)

    The 7th My mom and dad had marital problems and me and my siblings were moving from one school to the other between where we lived and where my martenal grandparents lived.

    I arrived three months into the academic year at a new school where my grandparents lived to do my 7th grade. It was hard ,I had no friends and the weather was different ,the food around as well,school songs ,just everything was so  different.I was lonely but to my surprise when the end of term exams came,I topped the class and got awards after awards through out the year and when final end of year national exams came,I gave the school one of the best grades they had not had in years and they became one of the top schools in the region and that made it my favourite year :-)

    Senior year - the LAST year (well, not counting college, but that was my CHOICE.)  School was a nightmare and I was so glad to be done with it!
