MY EXPERIENCES SCHOOL MASIYILE SECONDARY SCHOOL – WHAT AFFECTS ME?

By NOMPIKELELO HLAKAZA, GRADE 8

The things that actually affects me at school is when maybe we are writing something, for example, a test the leaners make noise and I cant even concentrate because of the noise and I even write on paper what they are talking about and that disturb me a lot and when I  am about to submit my paper it is when I  notice that I wrote wrong things only so i have to start from scratch writing a new paper when it is lunch time.

The other thing that affects me at school is when maybe we are in a natural science class and the leaners say silly things (in isiXhosa)because he is a coloured so he wont hear them but when he is really angry he kicks us out and wont teach us so we will be missing something and that worries and affects me a lot because I wont pass at the end of the term and that will be very very  bad because my parents will be very disappointed on me although it is not my fault.

The thing that affect me at home is when  I get home and notice that my siblings didn’t clean the house and didn’t wash their shirts and I have to do that by myself and including I have a homework  so I wont  have so much time to do my homework and that will affect me because I love my school work very  much.

The other thing that affect me at home is when I have so much work and when I get home from school and tell my mother  that I have a homework and she says that I have to make a tea for  her visitors  and the time is money.

    Nompikelelo, thank you for sharing. Your love of school and school work will get you through eventually, just keep trying. Chores are part of daily life and we cant escape them, so its better to try, very hard, to find time to do everything. I am confident you will!

    Hi Nompikelelo, thank you for writing to us. I am very sorry to hear about your challenges at school and home. What I have learnt when writing tests is to just take your time, read the questions carefully and do not rush yourself in writing the answer. My brother, who is doing Grade 12, has the same problem and I have also told him that the best thing to do is not to rush. It is also useful sometimes to meet up with friends to practice for tests and exams together :-) Good luck!
