Introducing My Junior High School

I go to Satree Secondary school. It is located in the centre of Samut Prakan province. The school now has about 3,323 students in six grades, namely Matayom Suksa 1 to Matayom Suksa 6 (grade 7 - grade 12) with 160 full time teachers and 77 classrooms.

(Please note: Sometimes in my Secret Diary I talk about going to school to work on my web site. When I say this, I mean my old primary school. I go to my old school every day in the evenings.)

I go to school at 6.45 a.m. by bus and songtaew (some people go by car but a lot of people usually go to school by themselves). My school starts at 8 o'clock, everyone must go to school before it starts. I have 7 periods in a day, 3 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. After period 3 (about 11 o'clock) everyone goes to have lunch in the canteen. Not many people bring food to school because food in the canteen is cheap. Period 4 starts at 12.10 p.m. and period 7 finishes at 3.30 p.m.

After period 7 some people go home, some play at school. The most popular sport at school is basketball. The people who go home they usually go home by themselves but some do not. I usually go home at 9.00 p.m. because I go to play football and basketball at my old school (Sriwittayapaknam School) or go to learn English with my teacher there and do my homepage too, then I go home by bus. When I get home I sweep my home every day, then I go to take a shower and do my homework.

The picture above shows me and my friends in front of my classroom. Click here to read about the subjects I study.

School Uniforms

Picture number one is my normal school uniform. I usually wear it to school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Picture number two shows my scout uniform. I wear it on Wednesdays. On this day we learn Scouts. I don't like this uniform because it's hot and not comfortable. And the last one shows me in P.E. uniform. I usually wear it on Thursdays. I really like this uniform because it's not hot and very comfortable.
  School Hair Cut

 This is my hair before and after I cut it! At school we are not allowed to have long hair. The school rules say students can't have long hair because it's not polite. We must cut our hair every month. I don't like to cut my hair but I must cut it. One time I had long hair (see picture "before"). It was the day before the end of the school year. The teacher saw me and cut some of the hair off above my ear as punishment. I was really embarrassed for the whole day at school. After school I went to the barber to have my hair cut properly. I don't like this crew cut because it looks very funny. But really everyone has the same hair cut.

My School

The front of my schoolMy school has 6 buildings, I learn in the fifth building. It has 4 floors, I learn in the fourth floor. Every floor has about 2-5 classrooms, on my floor there are 5 classrooms. There are 50 students and 1 teacher in my classroom. In my classroom there is a picture of the King, an image of the Buddha and a Thai flag. We sit in rows. On Fridays I have to clean the classroom because it's my duty. Everyone has to do it. We take turns to be on duty once a week, 10 persons each day.

This is a picture of the front of my school. On the second floor is the Computer room. We usually learn computer up there. You can also see a big picture of our king and the Thai flag.

This is the picture of our canteen in my school. At lunch time everyone in Junior High will come here at about 11.00 a.m. to buy some food to eat. We don't have to buy coupon. And at about 12.00 p.m. senior students will come here to eat too. We can buy some food at different counters. There are 10 counters in this canteen. The price is not expensive it's about 10-15 baht for a meal and the drinks are 3 baht. My favourite meal is chicken fried in chili paste with fried egg and rice. Other food you can buy includes fried noodles with beef and broccoli, egg noodle soup, bean cake soup etc.
