Starting new school in September...

Postby Phoenix » Wed Jul 26, 2006 11:49 pm

Hi, as the title suggests, I'm starting at a new school, beginning year 11, in september. I know no one who goes to this school - new area completely. I'm not splitting a vein over it, but I am moderately worried about.... What anyone and everyone would worry about when moving school: who will I meet, how will I do, will people like me, will I be popular, will I be bullied, will I have enough friends etc. Ok, so I know no one can answer any of these but if there's any general advice... I don't wanna get on the wrong side of anyone. My days of being judgemental are over - I just want to bumble through school life relatively peacefully and atleast be on alright terms with everyone. If there's any general advice...

Please let me know. Thanks, in advance.

Hey, i would say just try and be yourself, dont act like something your not. you can chose what you tell people about your past so you can start at your new school with a clean slate.
people normally love new people in their school as its something new, normally iv found people will make quite an effort to be your friend, just have to be careful you don't get led into a group that you don't want to be part.
maybe by joining a sports club or something in the school you cn make a good bunch of friends as well.
Good Luck!!!

Hey this must be exciting as well. Think about this, its only for less than half a year, theres always people who are happy to be friends, you always get the mean ones you get htem everywhere. Good luck with this and dont worry about a thing althoguh its totally normal, this is your hardest year of school so you need to be focussed,

I have just moved from a school in England to a school in India and have just started year 11 (school starts in July here instead of september) so I know exactly how you feel! I was absolutly dreading coming here to start with but I have been here for 2weeks now and everyone is really friendly and welcoming!! The school is alot different to my old school so its taking some time to get used to but i am sure you will settle in fine and make friends. Just be yourself and people will like you for it, dont try and be someone your not coz you could end up driving people away.
Good luck

i moved secondary schools when i was still there of course lol

and trust me its not bad at all. you just have to go there and be yourself.

this is how i thought about it.....i moved from a secondary school of 250 kids to one of about 1500 kids and i thought well at least ONE of them kids has to like me!

and i ended up meeting my best mate who i was inseperable with through year 11 and it was prob one of the best years of my life.

go there relax and have fun you will do fine.
