Have you ever been to England? I stayed in England for about a year from last September to the 24th of July. And today I’m going to talk you about my school in England.
My school called “***** of Kent Grammar School for girls”. It is located in Kent which in 1 hour away from London by the train. There are two type of public secondary school in England. One is grammar school and another is comprehensive school. I think most of grammar schools are either girls or boys. However there is a year 13, it is coeducational. Most school have their own uniform. Our uniform was white shirt, navy blue skirt and red jacket.
They were my classmates. There were 30 girls including me in my form. They were all kind and nice to me.
In my school we had some activities on ACT days. ACT day is some of alternative curriculum times days. On this day we did a fashion show. The theme of our form was “Space age”. In this fashion show we had to make Ball dress, casual wear and accessories from things that we don’t use any more. This was difficult but also fun. Some people composed music for the fashion show and other made dresses to wear. There were producers, models and also MCs. We studied about recycle and environment through this activity.
There was another ACT day’s activity. At this time, we studied about knife clime. We played a role of police and interviewed to the witnesses of clime. Also we investigate a case of murder. The police who came to our school taught us how to take the fingerprints. It was very good experience to know how the police work when the clime happen.
There are the pictures of sports day. Each 5 forms have their own house name and house colour. Each house has a name of continent and ours was America and colour was purple. We all have to wear purple t-shirt. I did three legged-race, 1000 meter running and 50 meter x 8 house relay.
A year I spent in England was a very good experience. There are many different things between English school and Japanese one. Sometimes I was surprised about it but also I found it very interesting. I hope all of you enjoyed my speech and may be interested in English school life. Thank you for listening.
