No need to sing the blues

No need to sing the blues

We hate to remind you, but today is the last day of your summer holiday! In fact, some of you have started school already. To cheer you up, we asked our readers what they are looking forward to the most about going back to school. Here are the top 10 answers ...

1. Off to uni

I'm going to be starting university, so I'm looking forward to making new friends!

Kate Ng, 18

2. Sound sleep

I'm definitely looking forward to a regular sleep pattern. Sleeping late and getting up late is a terrible summer habit!

Ruthie Laidler, 16

3. Reunions

Meeting my friends again! I haven't spoken to them in ages and can't wait to tell them about my summer!

Joy Pamnani, 14

4. Break time

Recesses, of course! Chilling out in between classes will remind me of the relaxing time I had during the summer holidays!

Heidi Kwan, 16

5. Bring on boarding school

This will be my first year studying overseas. Although it seems a bit scary, I'm looking forward to boarding school life and getting to meet new friends. I think it'll be challenging but fun at the same time!

Michele Chan, 13

6. Chomping with chums

Seeing my friends, of course! I'm really looking forward to sharing snacks with them again.

Odessa Fung, 13

7. Tan-tastic

I look forward to comparing everyone's tans on the first day of school!

Jade Lam, 16

8. Making friends

There will be 50 new students in my school this year, so I am excited to meet them all and make new friends.

Liam Fung, 11

9. Clip-clop

I'm going to Form Five, which means a new uniform: white blouse, light blue skirt and shoes with a bit of a heel. For the past four years, every time I heard heels at school I was on edge wondering if it's a teacher or a senior student. Now it's my turn to freak people out!

Leona Chen, 15

10. Chalk it up

I am really looking forward to cleaning the blackboard. It's good exercise for my arms. And once I graduate, I don't think I'll get the chance to clean any more blackboards.

Ruby Leung, 16
