The school day routine starts with the children arriving with teacher Maitri. She helps them out the car and they know to line up at the gate because our school is on a busy road. The children make sure that they have their backpacks and then stand quietly with their arms across their chests. They say “good morning” to teacher Devi as she opens the gate for them. Once inside they place their bags and jackets in their cubbyholes and greet Juliet who is busy preparing their breakfast. As soon as everyone has cleaned teeth, hands and faces it is time to say grace and eat breakfast. Our school day has started!
