Model Answer:

I’d like to thank you first for the opportunity to let me talk about a school where I’ve once studied. Well, to begin with, the name of the school is “Apple Tree Elementary Grammar School”, and I’ve studied there for about three years, from grade 3 to the end of grade 5.

This is an elementary school where young children study to complete their rudimentary education. As a private school, it was (and still is) a bit expensive, but they offer a pleasant campus, a huge library, a large playground, and other facilities to its pupils. This is an English medium school, and it has more than four hundred students in total. In our time, which was almost two decades ago, we had approximately one hundred students.

I studied in this school from grade 3 and left it when I completed my grade 5 education. So, I was very young when I studied there.

Personally, I believe that the school playground was the most attractive part of this school. It was huge and I could run, play, shout compete with my friends and do all kinds of exciting and crazy stuff there. As a young child, I really enjoyed my time in this school and doing fun and exciting things in the playground in our school was something I always looked forward to.

My impression of this school is excellent. I look back at my happy childhood memories, and this school has become an important part of it. The teachers in this school were very friendly and their teaching style was superb. Overall, I have high regard for this school and its teachers.
