    Can anyone remember their first day of school? What happened? I can't! Must be because we moved around a lot when I was young, but I really can't remember my first day of reception...

    And on that note, I was thinking, if I ever had kids, I'd be sad to send them to school because they might cry all day and all, but it's for their own good!

    A mate of mine told me his story. He was walking to school and he tripped up, and then he when he was on the floor he said that his mum had hit him! :O

    I don't remember my first day at school but I remember a woman coming around for a "home visit". I was busy playing with my Fisher Price Main Street while she talked to my mum and made sure I was a good girl and ready to join the school. I wonder if they still "interview" prospective students?

    I remember my first day of school after we first moved. I was about seven years old and really shy so I hated it because everybody there already knew each other and had friends; I felt isolated. I'm quite insecure now, at 19, too, so going to any new place is like the first day of school to me.

    Yes unfortunately. Some out of control kid was chucking a plastic dinosaur around and it hit me in the face. I was traumatised. What a great start to 14 years of education :rolleyes:

    I took my lunch and I wasn't sure where I would eat it. I thought that we would eat it in the classroom, but a canteen? I had no idea!

    Can't remember exactly what happened on my first day of school, but I do remember it was pretty uneventful. No traumas or anything - I went to nursery school with half my reception class so already knew most of them.

    I remember going off into the classroom with my lunchbox. I didn't turn around to say goodbye to my mum because i was so excited to be going to school. Apparently she was really upset because she expect me to be very clingy.

    It's a long time since I was a nipper; I remember the admission process and being fitted for the uniform more than the actually first day, which indicates that nothing particularly important happened.
