High School; Four Important Years

By Rachel DeLouchry


High school was a challenging four years. High school will test your mind, your ability, and your friendships. To everyone, high school is different but it always starts out the same.

That first day of grade nine was the most terrifying, exhilarating moment so far in my life. New students all coming together, scared of such a big and new place; it was a big day for us all. Even going to our homeroom, trying to find a seat and hoping that there is at least one familiar face in the class. I remember my stomach was in my chest and my heart was pounding. Honestly I was quite scared to be at Sir Oliver Mowat, I didn’t know what the future was going to hold for me.

But that one 8-hour day seems like a dream to me now. Four years to that day I had my first day of my last year at Mowat. I was finally a senior. Comparing the first day of grade nine and the first day of grade 12 are so different there is barely any similarities.

The first day of grade 12 was amazing. Seeing all my old classmates who were just as excited to be the oldest in the school as I was. I was happy and I was ready for my last year. I remember being excited for prom and think about what dress I would wear back in September. There was so much to look forward to. I was looking forward to graduating.

Grade 12 is the year where most students get high school over with, but once June hits us and we’re all going our separate ways, those feeling will change. You make friends in high school, and maybe even enemies, but really no matter what differences we students have, we are part of a great big family. For four years we have been there for each other and now most of us won’t see each other. It is a depressing thought but it makes me think back and be thankful for the four wonderful years I had, and I wouldn’t give that up for the world.

The transitions we students go through over a mere four years are incredible. We go through phases, friend groups and periods of hardship, but it’s really these experiences that we face in high school that shape who we are and who we will become. It’s the lessons that we’ve learned that we will keep. But most importantly it’s the thoughts and memories that we will cherish.

Thank you, Sir Oliver Mowat, for giving me a great four years of high school. Good byes are temporary, memories are forever.

CCRA would like to thank Rachel for her insights as a Mowat student and volunteer writer. We wish her every success in future endeavours!
