Wow! what an amazing day, it was a day to be remembered because I finally got to see my friends. Everyone had a smile on their faces except some of the new Grade 8s. I was so over joyed to be a grade 9 learner. we went to a welcoming ceremony at the school church. We arrived at the church and sat down then one of our teachers stood and welcomed us with an encouraging and inspiring message. Then our lovely choir sang for us and the song was so nice that I even sang along with them. The message that we got from the teachers, pastor and our principal was so motivating. What I took away from it was that I should work hard and look forward to every opportunity and even challenges that come my way. The best thing was that we should not give up on anything because of what people say about you because that can destroy your confidence. Also know what you want in life don’t depend on other people’s things, have your own things and focus on your studies to make yourself and your parents proud.
