Results! Results! Results!

The morning of Results was the most nerve racking day I've ever had, you know you are about to find out how much all your hard work (or guess work) paid off and it is what the first three years of school has been building up to.
      That morning my mum dropped me at the school and I met up with my friends. We were talking about how we hope we do okay and what we were doing that night to celebrate the end of third year for once and for all. We were brought into the hall and given a speech on how most people got outstanding results which did calm my nerves a bit. We were then put into our classes and given our results.
    As I opened my results I felt my stomach turn with excitment I was over the moon with my results, I almost cried I was so happy. I ran over to Anna and saw she was crying with happiness we then went over to  the rest of our group who were also happy! We knew this would make our night even more amazing.
    That night we all went to Emma's to get ready for Time getting ready with my girls made my night we had so much fun taking pictures and laughing about everything. We had such a great night dancing and talking to everyone it was the perfect way to end the day that is except for the fact we knew we had to get up the next day for school!

Workshop Wednesday

First week of TY is almost over and I can't believe it! I've had such a good week making new friends and working on projects. My favourite memory though would have to be our workshops on Wednesday which left everyone going home feeling happy and excited for the rest of TY.
        In the morning our first workshop was positive parties it was great fun! We all had floral neckalces and sweets. We listened to feel good music and played lots of games. We also played hocky poky but to the words of positive thinking and how to forget about bad decsisions, we learnt how to anchor good times in our life to help us when we feel down it was an amazing workshop and so much fun.
      In the next workshop we leant how to be confident and comfortable in ourselves by telling embarrassing stories they were so funny. We learnt how to see things from other people's perpesctives and see that two people can be right.
      The last workshop however was my favourite we learnt how to give a proper massage it was great fun and we learned loads of new skills. The whole class was in stiches laughing by the end of it but it was really relaxing at the same time.
     The first week of Ty has gone so fast but it was such a blast! I can't wait for the rest of TY!!

A new beginning...

Week 1 of my TY:

The first day of transition year went by so fast. It was so strange to see everyone who was in my year wearing kilts and green socks I'm still not fully used to it.
 After catching up with friends we were silenced by our year head coming Mrs. L to tell us what classes we were going to be in and talk to us about the year and what we will be doing. The classes this year were named after strong and empowered women I'm in the class Tereshkova all be it had to pronounce its a good name as she was the first women in space which was a marking point in history for women. Overall I am happy with my class as I am with my best friend and a few close friends but mostly there are new people which I am excited about becoming friends with and working with this year. 
 I am still not used to the idea of school and I definitely don't want to say goodbye to summer but I'm excited for a year of new subjects and different projects. I am really excited for the trips we are taking and the workshops as they will be a good chance to talk to people and make new friends. 
   Ty for me marks a new beginning for new friends, new skills lots of fun and activities but mostly a year to get to know myself and what I want for my future.
