First day of school
In September 1994 I started going to school. This is a picture of me just before my first day at St Anthony of Padua primary school. I still remember it 19 years on, walking into a room full of people I didn't know being completely terrified, not fully understanding why I was there, and with no idea I would be there for the next 7 years, followed by 7 years at SFX secondary and 6th form, 3 years at Edge Hill University, and 1 year at Greenbank College.

School is an important time in everyones lives, if I had gone to a different school I would of had different experiences, different friends, who knows what might have happened. Even though I looked like an idiot with those high socks, overly large blazer and silly hat, this is one of the most important days in my life so far, it was the start of a sequence of events that would make me who I am today.

Does any one else remember their first day of school or anything else from their time there?
