Poll: What are the best school days of your life?

Ah, to be starting it all over again.

IT’S THE LAST Sunday in August, which means two things. 1) Summer is, by anyone’s definition, over. 2) Pretty much all school children are going back to the daily grind.

Therein lies the question, is it a grind? We’re forever told that your school days are the best days of your life, but what day’s are best?

The nostalgia filled primary school times. The hormone fuelled secondary school days. Or the craic drenched college years.

Today’s poll, What are the best school days of your life?

Turn over your answer sheets.

Poll Results:

College (4300)
Secondary school (2546)
Primary school (1781)
