Have you any advice for boys or girls starting school in September?

Don't be afraid of the teacher they're very very nice, soon you'll get used to them. I wasn't scared of them when I was there. You have to wear the same uniform like everyone else but that's OK

Any other advice?

You must walk quietly down the corridor with your hand on your head and your finger on your lips. You can't run or skip in the corridor. You're only allowed talk if you're delivering something. School is great fun too
