I went to a Unity School (federal government owned institution) and I was in boarding school for 6 years, that was for the duration of my entire secondary education. I can’t deny the fact that I had a lot of amazing experiences but most of this came when I was in Senior school, most especially my pen-ultimate year and I guess same applies to most people that attended Boarding Schools. Unlike most juniors, I wasn’t bullied or made to go through hell, in fact I had a swell time as a junior student. I owe this to 2 cousins who were in their finals and who wouldn’t allow as little as a fly come my way. I lived the VIP life 😁.
Truth is I carefully avoided seniors back then in secondary school so I really didn’t have any bad experience so to say with any senior student.
However, there was this one time a senior I didn’t like forced me to the tulk shop to get something for her against my will. Well, because I didn’t like her, I gave her money to the Senior Boarding House Mistress who always had the back of junior students. My gist spread over the school like wild fire with every senior student asking why I did what I did. I felt really bad after the episode and questioning from different senior students didn’t help matters.
