Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 28th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 29, 2009 25 BACK TO SCHOOL Ari Kordy, of Croydon Park, is ready for school. Banish first-day blues IT is back-to-school time again and thousands of children around the country are probably feeling excited, and a little sad with summer over and school starting. It's quite natural for children to feel nervous on the first day of school because of all things new -- new teachers, friends and even a new school. The first day is your first chance to find your way around a new school, or learn the way to new classes in your old school. It's a lot to learn in one day, so don't be surprised if you need a reminder or two. It might help to write a few notes to yourself so you'll remember the important stuff, such as your locker combination or that lunch starts at 11:43, not 12:10. Before you know it, your fingers will fly as you open your locker and you won't have to check your notes to know what time lunch starts. Remember that whatever you put in your backpack, make sure you pack it the night before. This prevents the morning panic when you can't find your homework or lunch box. Here are a few final tips for a fantastic first day: Get enough sleep. Eat a healthy breakfast. Try your best. Develop good work habits, such as writing down your assignments and handing in your homework on time. Take your time with school work. If you don't understand something, ask the teacher. Remind yourself that school is fun!
