I'm back to school in a couple of days and am not looking forward to it. It is quite ironic that I have spent less time on this website since I broke up, I though I'd be on it a lot more. Just though I'd open a moaning thread for all the youngsters and a cheering thread for all parents.

I had my first day of grade 10 today. (Sept 5) It started at 08:40 and ended at 12:30. We didn't really do anything, the teachers just talked to us. I have Fitness, English, Civics/Careers, and History. Should be a relatively easy semester. I hate english class. It's pointless when I know how to speak it.  grumpy

Yeah, well I still have a good 5 hours of Calculus, Mechanics, and Materials Engineering ahead of me. THAT's sad. You just have to suck it up and deal with it.

Honestly, though, October used to be the worst month for me. No days off, it's starting to get cold, and still so far away from the end of the year.

Quite a fun day. My first semester is all easy stuff (2 courses then lunch/co-op). My 2nd semester will be tough. I've got Tech Design, Math, English and Chemistry in 1 sem. Co-Op allows students to earn 2 credits (morning or aft co-op) or 4 credits (full day co-op) by doing an apprenticeship program at a place of business. Some people want to work in a hospital, law office, ACC, etc. The teacher finds you a placement, you go for an interview and the business chooses if they want to "hire" you or not. My choices were Toronto Airways (Buttonville airport) or Graphic Designer. We've got 2 weeks of in-class then 4 weeks on the job, a week in class, a 2 more weeks on the job and then 3 days in class final culminating project.

It should be fun.

Guys - there's a really shocking day coming for you in a few years time, around age 21/22 after uni/college, when you have to work for a living and discover there are two seven o'clocks in the same day...

I will do that. Big grin  Wink My careers part starts I think November 10, so I have lots of time to think. My Civics/Careers teacher is the same one I have for fitness class.  tongue  I also want to take co-op next year and see if I could do it at YOO or YKZ.

are two seven o'clocks in the same day...

yeah I found that out in kindergarten... we started at 8:00AM and it takes about 40 minutes for me to drive to school and then middle school started at 8:15 and now High school starts at 7:30... I went to an optional primary program so we started earlier then all of the other primary schools  Sad

sort of like mine, except you get 10 minutes less  Sad

I am in the hardest program in the state (Alaska), about 75 kids make it into the program for our 9th and 10th grade and then in our 11th and 12th grade about only 20 or maybe even less make it into the International Baccalaureates program. So its a tough cookie to eat, but as long as I make it crumble my way I should be all good! I just have to get my A into G and keep it there  Wink

Anyways good luck with school for everyone else and I know as well as you that I can't wait for summer!!!

No it isn't, I have no doubt that you can speak it, but can you write it really well? That's the key. I've gone through 3 years of University and done well, mostly based on my ability to write down arguments clearly in essays.

I hated Career Studies, so for my career I chose being a Ballerina, yes, I was the class clown, and no, the teacher was not impressed.

Enjoy it, it's a great time. By the time you hit Gr. 12 or whatever they call it there, your senior year I believe, you start drinking in the parking lot on lunch and spare and then go to your afternoon classes half in the bag.

Nope - i'm not doing that one, i have mine in march as we use a different exam board (AQA i think). I've got 14 (14!!!) GCSE's on the way, if i pass them all:
English
Maths (upper tier i think)
Science (not a clue)
Food Technology (suck at all the others and i tend to set fire/break the machines)
German
Geography
PSE
PE
RE
ICT DiDA (4 GCSE's, woo!)

Shame that the school is a technology school and i have to do it, plus they force you to do RE.
