A School in Shantytown

As we walked and explored this historic Shantytown which had about 29 itemised attractions, we stumbled upon a real school with an on-going lesson that was conducted by none other than the school principal himself. What luck!
We asked for permission to sit in on the lesson and the Principal graciously obliged.
The furniture, building and set-up were as they existed in the old mining days. D2, a Principal herself, thoroughly enjoyed the session and exchanged views and later addresses with the Principal.
The school kids were very well behaved and extremely attentive.
They impressed both of us with their eagerness to learn. overaged student in Shantytown School,Greymouth.
This is good proof that no matter what your age is, you can still ...LEARN!
