Model Answer:

Well, I have great memories of my primary school but one thing that I can never forget is the time or the fun that I had with my best buddy Simran at school.

Who he/she was? and How you met this friend?
Simran was my best friend in school days and the reason behind it was that he was my neighbour also.

What you did together?
We both studied at the same school which was not too far and often our grandmothers used to take us to school. So we used to walk along them to reach school that hardly used to take 5-7minutes on the way to school and coming back to home we often talk to each other and it used to be a lot of fun sharing our experience at school with these grannies.

Now at school, we used to have a lot of fun together. We always used to sit together on the same bench, and along with the study, we used to gossip a lot, and I still remember the teachers used to call us Chatterbox. Of course, we were too young that they punish us but often they stop us from talking too much. After school we often get together in the evening honestly speaking, I had a great time being at my friend’s house.

The fact is that his father was an engineer I can say that he was much wealthier than me and he had a thousand times better toys than me so often in the evening I hit his place where we played together In fact he was also having a video game which my father couldn’t afford and every evening for almost one hour we played computer games. I still remember we used to play Mario, which was our favourite game.

Now, he also used to come to my place because my mother is a teacher so often he came to my place in the evening where we used to study together especially to complete the classwork.

How long you were friends?
Now, this friendship developed at primary school, and we remained very good buddies in our high and middle school, but later, his family moved to Mumbai, and for that reason, we got disconnected.

Interestingly, last year I found him on Facebook and now we have planned to meet personally with each other and I am desperate about it.

Overall, I can say that Simran was the friend with whom I had a great time at primary school.
