Trip to Kenya

On the Friday, before half term, Mr Hassard went to Kenya to visit Ack Kathari school.  We interviewed him and he told us some interesting facts about the children there and their school.

One of the questions we asked him was:  What are the main differences between their school and ours?  He replied, by telling us that they started school at 07.45, in the morning and finished school at 16.00.  He told us that they have two breaks in the morning and also a lunch break.  They also have to sweep their classroom and keep it presentable.

For lunchtime they have water from the school stream and have maise for their main meal.  He told us that the entire experience was eye-opening, enjoyable and even active, as Mr Hassard stepped in to be the childrens P.E teacher for the whole week. 

Thanks Mr Hassard for giving us all this information.
