Last week, all Concord students had their first full week of school. 7:50 breakfast, 8:35 registration, 40 minutes lessons all the way until 4:00pm. All of you are probably still having some hard time trying to get used to the busy routines after a long and relaxing holiday (I hope it’s not just me).
On Monday however, we got to skip period 9 (woop woop!) because of the enrichment fair where students have the opportunity to join different after school activities and clubs such as choir, Charity Club, Outreach Society, Debate Club, Fashion Show, Chess Club, sports team etc.
On Wednesday, instead of going to sports like we did in Form 3 and 4, now we are in Form 5 we get to go to town, but this week the form 5s did the Morrisby Test which would help us determine which career suits us best. It took us a little over 4 hours to complete the test, but with the supervision of three nice invigilators, the test wasn’t so bad after all. In fact, I am actually looking forward to the results. I think that it would be interesting to know what kind of jobs I should go for in the future.
On Saturday, we had our first Saturday test of the year. I am sure most of the new students were feeling a little nervous, but it’s okay! Because us old students felt the same too, it certainly felt weird to be doing tests in exam conditions for the first time after so long. I always see going to town on a Saturday afternoon as a treat for being able to sit through 1-2 hours at the sports hall, my friends and I decided to have lunch at a Thai restaurant and went grocery shopping after.
However, it is wrong to think that Sundays in Concord would be boring. There are many things that you could do: trips to the cinema, shopping trips to cool places like Liverpool or Birmingham and even volleyball practices in the evening every Sunday night; It even gets pretty intense sometimes!!!
Have a lovely term!
