anonAssumption Secondary School           01/16/2009 09:56 PM - (share to everyone) ------------------- I began 1st year in this school in 1992 and i loved it it was a very good school, very well ran, good teachers like Mr, Reid, Mr. Ryan and many more, and was to begin my junior cert when Mr.xxx advised my mother to take me out of the school, i was a bit of a messer but by no means a bad kid, i didn´t deserve to be taken away from the school and my friends and thrown into a bunch of strangers at that age, i didn´t take to well to the new school and not before long i ran away from home and became homeless i had children at a very young age and with no education i ended up in run down council estates, i knew i had more to offer myself, so i returned to school got a degree and now i am successful enough and i live in the country with my kids. Why i am writing this is that it is my worst fear that my kids would be taken away from there teenage friends, the most important time of anyones life is the friends we make and keep in our teens, i lost them all as there was no mobiles or ways of communication, i know my life would be very different if i had stayed in the assumption, i am glad of what i have now, but have been through a hell of a lot that i didnt need to just because my life had took a huge U turn and suddenly i didnt have my comfort any more, i was amongst strangers and bullies. So i want to share this, that if any child is on the verge of being dismissed from a school that it is looked into very seriously before action is taken, as it has a huge effect on someones life, absolutely huge. Thank you.
