Summer Valley Progressive School

My name is Johnny Aloysius and I go to Summer Valley Progressive School in Australia. My school is small – there are 60 pupils and four teachers. There are four classes every day, and they start at 8.30am. There are no classes at the weekend.

My school is very different to other schools because it is not very strict – we don’t wear school uniform and we study when we want to, because the classes aren’t compulsory and homework is optional. There are school meetings on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1.45pm until 2.30pm. At the meetings we talk about the school rules – but there aren’t very many!

I like all the subjects, but my favourite class is maths with Mr Gillbanks. I like art too, but I’m not very good at drawing! I really like my school, especially the food- it’s fantastic, and sometimes we help to make it! Would you like to go to a school like mine?.

GLOSSARY: compulsory – obligatorio drawing – dibujo/dibujar, sometimes – a veces
