Convent is full of girls who think fighting is a hobby. Most of dem are obsessed with the PE teacher and beg for attention. The girls bullythe English and Science teachers. They think they're on piss all because they have attitude. They all get into problems wid the girls from their rival school but the girls from school are shook. The convent girls are always ready to fight but no-one has the courage to fight dem. They are nice girls but get on their bad side. The girls in yr9 and yr11 are the lengest But are either lesbian or just cant get boyfriends . If they do get boyfriends, they are loyal as fuck. The white girls think theyre black and the lightskins get all the attention. The teachers don't know how to control them when there's a fight and instead of listening to the students, they send them to isolation. The toilets are dutty. There's writings on the walls and half of the toilets don't work. They cook the same food in the canteen everyday and it's nasty asf so the girls spend their money on food in the morning. They always get kicked out /banned from stores for doing tik toks and in the morning, their always walking passed the mandem at the bus stop cuz they're sexy. Don't fuck with convent girls.
