      Good. I enjoyed the subjects I was interested in and struggled with the ones I wasn’t interested in (same as most people).
      I went to Colaiste Chriost Ri in Cork – a wonderful school.

      I never really got on well in primary school but really enjoyed my school years once I got to secondary school. I think I enjoyed the choice over the subjects I was participating in. As I moved towards the end of my time in school, especially I think in my last year, I started to get a little impatient and wanted to just go to college and start doing something else. But looking back I wish I had cherished my time in school a little more. I had great friends and getting to spend the day with them everyday was definitely something I took for granted. Although overall I really enjoyed my school years that’s not to say I didn’t struggle. I put a lot of pressure on myself which cause a lot of unnecessary stress.

      I have mixed memories of my school life, I loved learning new things and I really enjoyed performing experiments in my science classes. However, I was also bullied quite badly in school which really affected me at the time. Iā€™m sorry I never spoke out about it so that my school life could have been better.

      I really liked my school, they really were the best days. I had dedicated teachers and a school ethos that was with hard work, you can reach the starts.
