back to school

• 18 comments •


The last place we visited during our township tour was a day care/elementary school. This school is funded by school fees paid by parents in the township, and is considerably larger and more modernized than the school in the informal area of the township.


The kids who were playing outside came and pressed themselves up against the window when they saw us. They seem to have this secret "thumb-shake", whereby they come and put their thumb against yours.



We weren't fortunate enough to meet the kids while they were in class, since they were either napping or cleaning up their toys. We seemed to be joining them around lunch time. Their lunch was prepared with wholesome, locally sourced ingredients, and looked healthier than anything we've ever seen served in a school.


The children were notably well behaved. Before we left, the all got together and sang us a few songs, and inundated us with high-fives.
