Kids in Ireland are headed back to school at the moment after a lay off since March due to Covid.
Much of the talk is about how they are delighted to be going back. I can’t imagine such a feeling. The start of the school year always filled me with dread. It meant the end of being outdoors and free and having to wear a heavy uniform and face hours of homework.
I don’t think I would be any different now and wonder how I could be so out of step with school enthusiasts or is it some sort of fairy tale that kids, these days, love school.
Even in my time, there was the old saying that ‘school days are the happiest days of your life.’
They certainly weren’t for me unless people are talking about school holidays!
What’s your feel about ‘loving school?’
