What do you like about your school?

Kids laughing in class

Lots of people say your school days are the best days of your life, but what do you like about your school?

Do you love seeing your mates every day and learning new things?

Maybe you've got great teachers who make all your subjects fun?

Is there a special project at your school that you think is a really good idea? Maybe it deals with bullying really well or is great at being 'green'?

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.

"I love my school because the company is great. The teaching staff offer a lot of support, our facilities are good, our standard of learning is excellent and our success rate is very high. I am at a specialist languages school so lots of extra languages are available and there are three compulsory languages, so our chances of getting good jobs is good when we are older."

"I love my school as all the teachers are really supportive and have a sense of humour. On the last day of term the Year 6's do a leavers assembly and we do a play. I had one teacher who was really mean. He even swore at us. However he was sacked from his job."

Molly, 11, Sussex

"I like my school because we have interactive whiteboards that I enjoy and I was in a wheel chair a few weeks ago and everyone was so supportive."

Michael, 9, Croydon

"I love my school because it is where I learn and where I have fun. But one thing I don't like my school for is the terrific smells and language on the walls. My favourite subject is art and language and for people that are bored they can go to OCC (Orange Card Club were you have lots of fun)."

Georgia, 10, Barnstaple

"Lunch, the best thing is the school dinners. They are healthy and delicious plus if you have a packed lunch you can sit outside, although the school dinners now cost 1.60 and used to cost 1.54. It's a rip off."
