Model Answer:
(…say your elementary/ primary school name…) was the first school I went to and this is the school I will always remember. The school was in the middle of my hometown just behind the city hall. The school was located beside a big park and a pond that gave it a nice view. I got admitted to this school when I was only 4 years old and because of that, everything was new to me. I had a very positive vision of the school, teachers, friends and I was very lucky to be in this school that taught me many important aspects of education and life.

I studied in this school for about 3 years and I enjoyed my time there a lot. The school was a nice place with a suitable environment for the kids. It was a 4 storied building of L shape and there were almost 200 students there. The teachers were very helpful and very friendly. I never found them in a rough mode with students. Managing and taking care of 200 students is not an easy task and to my surprise, the teachers were very dedicated and caring to do that perfectly.

They always treated us like their own children and there were numerous times we got gifts from them. They have helped us a lot to prepare for our study and also taught us about the values and ethics of life.

I enjoyed the environment of our school, especially the big garden, playground and canteen. I also enjoyed having such great teachers who were caring and good humans. In the break time, I used to play with my classmates and that’s something I will never forget. The childhood is magical and pleasant and for me, this became even happier because of the school I went to.
