Schools started in Iraq last Saturday (1st October). I will talk about what happened with me at the first day.I didn't sleep the day before Saturday to get used on the new time, because I always get up at 1 pm and the schools start at 8 am so for that I didn't sleep, I took a Taxi and I went to my school and when I reached the school, I met my school friends that I haven't seen them for 4 months, it was great to see them and their faces are changed and they look different, at 8 am, we entered the school and we stood in the school yard waiting for the headmaster and his assistant and the teachers to come, and then they came and the headmaster started talking to us about the new studying year and specially to us the 12th grade students like he said this is your last year this is your future…blah blah blah, and then the 12th grade assistant come to us to read for us the names of the students and which classes they are in because in Iraq the system is not like America the assistants make groups of students and put each one in a class and give the class name like A,B,C,D,H,W, so they put me in the class D with some of my friends from the old classes I mean in the 11th grade and the 10th grade, and then a big surprise there was no class D because there were books of all the school in my class like a book store, so they have to take the books out and then we will study in our class, for now we are studying with the class H in the same classroom. And then we entered the first lesson and in each lesson they come they talk about the same thing that the head master talked about, and till now we didn't study we just go to school and stay there and then we leave they said teaching will start next Saturday. Some of the students are talking about that all the books are changed this year, the ministry of education changed all the books this year even the English book and the story of Shakespeare (Merchant of Venice). I hope that I will do well this year and make good marks at the finals to get the best college in Baghdad.
