13: 5 support services i recommend would be: Teachers because if you don't know your way around the building, the teacher could help you.

16: 1 change I would expect to deal with in the next five years: I am now in year 7, i am no longer a child and 1 major change i will have to deal with gradually in the next five years is becoming more independent, more mature, take responsibility for my own actions and relying less and less on others to help me.
