We know the start of a new school year can be a stressful time, especially for Form 1 students who are entering secondary school for the first time. So, we asked some of our S.H.I.E.L.D.S. peer leaders: what’s one thing you wish you knew when you started Form 1? Let’s see!
Form 1 students are usually worried about if they violate the school regulations, and if they can catch up with the school work as they have more subjects than before.
第二就係學校方面，係教學同考試模式都唔同，中一生需要適應，係呢方面要多 d 支援。
I wish I had a senior to guide me to get familiarised with the campus, like school regulations
可能係學校內流傳既一 d 文化，例如係每個老師既相處之道，或者邊 d 堂係特別好玩，甚至多 d 八卦野，甘樣比中一生可以快 d 適應到，同同學都可以有多 d 野講。
There are more subjects than before and students have to go to different classrooms.
Ask your seniors for advice and tips.
Preparation before class is very crucial. Otherwise, you won’t be able to understand what teachers said. I didn’t do it in Form 1 but I did it in Form 2 and that’s why my academic performance improved.
