John Marsden Writing Topic #477

What do you think would be the best and worst things about going to boarding school?**


-Not having to travel back and forth between school and home.

-Getting the chance to live with my friends.

-Never feeling lonely as I’m constantly surrounded by people.



-Having to live at school and therefore under constant supervision.

-Being away from home and family.

-The possibility of living with people you don’t like.

-Being stuck there until you finish school.

-There would be stricter rules at the boarding school than there would be at home.

-Having to live in a bedroom and therefore not having much personal space (especially if it’s communal).
