Last Day of School
I had my last day of school today, and what is usually a time to jump for joy was a day when I mostly felt like crying. Going through all of my classes was so sad because each time I could only think “this is my last Spanish class” or “this is my last breaktime.” That’s not to say we didn’t have some craic as well. During Geography a bunch of 5th years were helping out with incoming 1st year orientation. The few of us left went to help our Geography teacher set up the xbox kinect in the hall. Once we had the dance program up and running we had to at least make sure it was working. Seeing a bunch of girls in matching uniforms dancing in a line was hilarious to say the least. In the afternoon we convinced most of our teachers to let us watch a movie instead of do actual work. We passed around our homework diaries to sign and I passed around a Kerry flag to get everyone’s signatures.
When the final bell rang, I almost started crying. I said goodbye to all my friends, hopefully they’ll be able to come visit me in Castlegregory. I also went to talk to Mr. Kelliher to get my final grades. He was very sweet and gave me a card as well as a lovely necklace with the Presentation cross on it.
I was so lucky with my school. When I first heard I was going to an all-girls school I was a little aprehensive. But, it turned out to be great. I made amazing friends and got to try all sorts of new things. Everyone was lovely and welcoming. I will miss them all so much!
