Year after year we become older and we begin to realize that there are some essential things in our lives: our birthplace, home and the school we go to.
My school is a four-storeyed building situated in one of the dormitory areas of our town. All the children from our neighbourhood go there because it is situated not far from their houses. There is not a large yard with a green lawn and many flower-beds in front of our school; and a sports ground behind the school-building.
The school was built about ten years ago. The classrooms in our school are large, light and well-equipped.
Our classroom is on the third floor. Its windows face the school-yard. There are two large windows in our classroom; a great amount of flowers grow in pots that stand on the window-sills. It is pupils of our class who are responsible to water the flowers several times a week. And we all do it with great care and pleasure. On the walls of our classroom there are different colour maps and portraits, tables and wall newspapers.
Our form is the only one among 10th forms of our school who has a class-master, but not a class-mistress. He is a kind, knowledgeable and very fair teacher who doesn't spare time to take us to different places of interest and exhibitions. He teaches us History of our country and we like and respected him a lot.
Lessons in our school begin at 8.15 in the morning and last till 14.30 in the afternoon. We have in general six lessons a day.
Every pupil has a record book where our teachers write down our marks and we write down home tasks. Lessons usually take place in such a way that a teacher asks a question and the pupils who can give an answer raise their hands and the teacher calls out one of them to answer the question. Teachers often call pupils to the blackboard to do different exercises or to write some sentences from dictation. When they make a mistake, other pupil can be called out to correct a mistake or sometimes the teacher corrects it himself. After every lesson teachers give us home tasks both written and oral forms.
When we have the next lesson with this teacher he or she checks up the home task. From time to time our teachers take our exercise-books home to check them. If there are any mistakes they correct them and give us marks we deserve.
At the end of each term we receive our interim marks, but at the end of the year we are promoted to the next form.
I like my school and friends I have there, that's why I don't mind going to school every day.
