One of the most important periods of our life is the period of studying at school. It's actually the whole epoch for schoolchildren: they get major knowledge about outside world, obtain certain skills and get the experience of living in the society. It's here, at school we learn how to behave and to cope with difficulties.
We begin our school study at the age of 6 and at the age of 17 we finish it. When at school we have our lessons 5 days a week. The classes start at 8:30 a.m. (as I live not far from my school, so I have no excuse to be late for classes) and at 3 p. m. the lessons are over.
My school has got three floors. On the first floor there is a cloak-room, a dining room and a library. The library is well stocked with books from the reading list of recommended books for pupils. Opposite the library, there is a school canteen where pupils can eat during the breaks.
Our classrooms are on the second and the third floors. Most of the classrooms are very much alike. They are all light, airy, with flowers on the window sills, with portraits of outstanding people on the walls and with charts and maps near the blackboard.
Nevertheless, there are many specialized rooms for studying different subjects. Chemistry, Physics and Biology are taught in well-equipped science rooms. There are also schemes and tables on the walls. A special room for computer studying is equipped with computers. There are specialized linguistic laboratories for studying foreign languages. Besides, pupils have lessons in workshops, having practice in various crafts.
We have our classes of physical training in either our gymnasium or on the sport ground, situated behind the school building. On the first floor, there is an assembly hall where parties meetings are held.
As we become older, we realize that there are some essential things and places you always long to come back to. They are certainly your birthplace, your home and the school you went to. We shall always be indebted to our teachers for the rest of our lives.
Hard as it is, the school life is very interesting. Most of the lessons are instructive, and I must confess that school years are unforgettable.
