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).
