Today is the first day of school in my part of the world — a very exciting day, indeed!
I’m thinking about all the kids and teachers who are back in the classroom and hoping that everyone feels refreshed and rejuvenated after their summer break, ready to embrace the challenges of a new year.
Before I began writing, I was a primary teacher (I enjoyed my job so much!). I remember with fondness the first day of school, seeing the children eager and full of enthusiasm, glad to be reunited with their friends and keen to embark on a new year.
I wish all the teachers and students a happy school year, with much learning, oodles of fun, and many good books to read!
