So, today is School day...The day Shanti Bhavan opened in 1997! The day started as usual, 6:25 on the Physical Training Field with the 4th-7th graders running one lap around the field, doing a few 10sec stretches and 10 jumping jacks, then the 4th and 5th grade girls joined myself and Austin (another Volunteer) for some early morning Dancing. Breakfast is from 7:30 to 8:30 and then classes start on the dot. For the first time this week I didn't have a first period to teach, so I went back to the teachers accommodation, which is located...Jump to full entry
