A Future star? She gets up at 6:00 in the morning. She takes a quick shower, puts on her swimsuit and runs out of the door with a bottle of orange juice in her hand. At the gym, she does some warm up exercises. Then, she swims for about 2 hours. At about 8:15 she takes a long hot shower. She walks home because the swimming pool is near her house. At home, she gets dressed for school and has a big breakfast. She eats 3 pancakes, 2 eggs, some bacon, two slices of toast, and another glass of orange juice. At 9:00 she begins her classes. Her name is Janet Gregory. She is fifteen years old. Why does she work so hard? She explains, ‘I want to be an Olympic swimmer. I swim about 5 hours every day, two hours before school in the morning and three hours after school. It’s very hard work. I don’t have a lot of free time, but I enjoy it very much. I like swimming.’ After school, Janet trains for another three hours. She has dinner, does her homework and goes to bed. ‘At the end of the day I’m very tired. Sometimes I read a book to relax, or talk to my parents. I like playing with my baby brother.’

I talked long hours with my best friend there till late at night, and in that room my brothers and I played together. We had a lot of fun there during our childhood. There was a small sofa that was my grandmother's favourite. She liked to sit there for hours. We often watched TV there. In winter, we sometimes sat in front of the fire and listened to our favourite songs. My favourite things in the room were our TV and especially our stereo because I love to listen to music.

We also had lots of books on the bookshelves. I liked to collect shells, so I had plenty of them too. There were also beautiful paintings on the walls.

We don’t have to wear uniforms – only students in private schools have to wear uniforms. But we must be careful. There are some clothes and colours that we can’t wear because gangs wear them. We can’t take personal stereos or headphones to school and we can’t chew gum. Some students drive to school because in Chicago people can drive when they are 16.

National School for Soccer Last year an interesting new school opened in Britain – the National School for Soccer in a place called Lilleshall in Shropshire. The boys live and train at the school and go to a nearby secondary school for their academic work. People who are against this idea give the following reasons: • Because they spend such a short time in school, they can’t really take full part in school life. • It’s a system which makes them special and different. • Only a few people have successful football careers. It’s more important to pass exams. Even successful footballers only have short careers. One of the first boys who was allowed to go to the National school was Jason Beckford, who is fourteen. He has already spent a year there. He and his brother Darren, who is seventeen, are two of Britain’s brightest hopes for football. Another schoolboy called Jason, this time Jason Dozzell found an easier route to professional football. Jason, who is seventeen now, had never played in a professional team until eighteen months ago when he received an exciting phone call from the manager of Ipswich. Four days later, he was out on the Ipswich pitch and he managed to score one of the three goals which beat Coventry. He left school soon afterward. He had been playing serious football since he was eleven and had always wanted to be a footballer. His sports teacher said, “ Jason is the best footballer of his age – he has strength, vision and skill”. Catch I A
