Infact, I hardly talked in class even when teaching is going on, as a results of this no Teacher know me by name because we are many in class, that is how Government School is been structure. I was a serious student even though I talk much in class, I don’t joke with my study. Starting from Jss one to SS3 I was so focus with my study.
I enjoyed my secondary school days in spite of my seriousness, especially after the Examination period, I used to play football with my friends then during the School hour because we were allow that after examination.
The most important experiences in my Secondary School days was when I was in SS3, We feel like we are on top of the world, proving seniority in school, nobody can stop from coming late then, we were more friendly with our Teachers.
The West Africa examination period was so memorable; though also experience a bad moment in secondary school, especially for coming late which I was given serious punishment, punishment for noise making in class.
While we were also beaten for any misconduct in school, I love my vice-principal then very action man, no nonsense man, with all these secondary school days was so amazing.
