There was a country-wide teachers’ strike for 3 weeks and it took another 2 weeks for all the students to return to school. We have quite a few new students this term, none know sign language and they have to be so confused. I can’t imagine being dropped off at a boarding school, not knowing why, and not being able to communicate with anyone.
I feel like 3rd term has finally started! 3rd term is only 9 weeks long but it was extended by 3 weeks to make up the first 3 weeks missed due to the strike. The Class 8 standard exams (that decides if and which secondary school they get into) were also extended.
I have a good feeling about this term!
