Advent Calendar – December 15, 2019

A classroom at Kaewa Secondary School, a public secondary school that we visited as they were the winners of the Green Initiative Challenge in 2018.

On the blackboard – which still was an actual blackboard with chalk, something you only see at Waldorf schools in Sweden nowadays, otherwise it’s whiteboards – the schedule for the day of our visit was visible:
Wednesday
English
Agriculture
Break
English
Kiswahili
Break
Mathematics
Business
Lunch
Something I cannot read
Chemistry 
Something else I cannot read

Isn’t it funny, how classrooms all over the world, look the same more or less? Perhaps this classroom rather evokes memories of times long passed in Sweden; the 40s? The 50s? Something like that. But anyway, I don’t think anyone would look at this photo and miss the fact that it’s taken inside a classroom. Do you agree?


Advent Calendar for 2019: sharing pictures and stories/reflections from my trip to Kenya in June. I went to visit “my trees” and get a hands-on experience of the social entrepreneurship of the Kenyan forestry company that I buy trees through.

Full disclosure: I am proud to say I am both a customer and an ambassador for the company. If you are curious to find out more, let me know and I’ll gladly get in touch with you! Here’s my sponsored link: https://betterglobe.com/27216

    Håller helt med – kan inte vara något annat än ett klassrum det där! Fina skolbänkar! (Ryser när jag tänker på svarta tavla och gnisslet … )

      Ja, väldigt fina skolbänkar.
      Haha – du e sån du. Svarta tavlan-gnissel har aldrig bekommit mig vidare värst, men att ta i blöta glas med diskhandskar på – huuuuvaligen, ryser bara jag tänker på det!
