My First Day at Loreto – By Cass Cameron

My First Day at Loreto

As I tip-toed timidly through the Loreto gates, I could feel my thumping heart beating rapidly. My mouth was as dry as a desert. Nervously, I followed mature smart girls mimicking their every move.

In the distance I could see the big, brown building waiting to welcome me. As I quietly strode through the silent but swift automatic blue doors, I could feel the extreme heat. It was as calm as the ocean.

Suddenly, a soft-spoken teacher asked me a question. My lips answered in relief and then I replied carefully. She guided me quickly to the Assembly Hall glancing repeatedly at me like a teddy bear ready to give me a warm tight hug.

I rushed eagerly to the overwhelming canteen, trying enthusiastically to barge past caring, kind girls, wondering curiously what amazing food was on offer. I jumped up nervously hoping that my all-time favourite dish was there. Thankfully it was!

It was then time for me to go home. The day flew by like a paper aeroplane soaring through the bright blue sky. Now I just had to wait excitedly for the next day to come.
