Skyping With Lombok School!

We were very lucky last week to be able to skype with a small village in Lombok which is in Indonesia.  Stephanie came to our school to help us skype with the village school.  She spent some time there as a volunteer teaching the children English.  She asked if our school would be interested in skyping with the village.  Ms. Tieppo and Mrs. Mosbauer were very excited and said yes.  Miss Y also helped us out on the day by giving us the Library space and her IWB.  A few children in our class asked some great questions. 

We learned so much!

Here are some things that we learned or noticed when we were skyping the school in Lombok:

  • They liked playing football.

  • They went to school on a Saturday.  They leave home at 7:00 am and go home at 1pm.

  • Not everyone gets to go to school.

  • There are 37 children in their class!

  • The boys sat on one side of the room and the girls sat on the other side.

  • There are 1000 children in the one school.

  • There are white walls and windows in there classroom.  There is no work up on the walls.

  • After school the children go home to do chores.

  • They have 3 lessons for the day and one 10 minute break.

  • They pray 5 times a day.

  • They have fun at school like us.There is only one library in the whole village .  It has one shelf of books.
