First Day of School

Here are some first images of the school where I am teaching. They are like school girls everywhere. When they are on break, they are giddy and have a lot of energy. They play games and braid each other’s hair. They chase one another and then when the person being chased is caught the pursuer has not idea what to do, so they laugh and hug. And sometimes, there are photobombs involved.

P.S. Apologies if I have not been as attentive as usual to people liking my posts, especially new viewers. It is a rather intense schedule here.

      Thank you so much. You have no idea what it means for a child here to grow to be someone who can earn a better living than in the market. Cheers

      Well they have been in school for a few months. It was MY first day. They get a big vacation around Christmas. Like our summer break. Cheers ๐ŸŒž


    The images are so nice.
    I like action shots which are full of activities.
    Thanks Chris for sharing them with us!

        But the uniform of the girls is somehow different…it also differs from school to another.

        Uniforms differ here also. You can tell which school a girl attends for he uniform she wears. What I can’t get over is the noise in the courtyard…It’s like working out on the tarmac at the airport. But it is a happy sound. Cheers! =)

    Oh giddy little school girls make me giddy! I was a Pre-School teacher and loved every minute of it. I retired after 25 years!
    Your photos show the happiness they have being there!
    And we all understand that you are working a tough schedule and wifi may be a problem too. We aren’t going anywhere!

    Best of luck! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for your work. Rich or poor, children should be treated equally and given the best effort if we want this planet to have a future.
    No worries about being not too attentive. We all do what we can ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you. They are a pretty cool group. The afternoon students are a bit more subdued. They were often working in the morning and it is hot as heck.
