This week, we visited the secondary school! We went to their library and the children noticed that the tables and chairs are much taller and the students are older and bigger. Mrs. Hand, the secondary school teacher librarian even read the children a story. Aside from walking through the hallways, the children also had an opportunity to visit one of the classrooms and they noticed that instead of toys, the shelves had books, notebooks and paper. A few of our students were also curious about the lockers (and locks) that were outside the classroom and asked what they were for.
