How does your primary school looked like? Any memories of it? Do you remember the name of that school? My mom was a headmaster of a primary school. Why I say WAS? Because she just retired last week after working as a teacher for 37 years. That’s really a long time. So last week I fetched my mom to her school in Kampung Pelawan, Perak. She used to travel from Teluk Intan to Kampung Pelawan everyday which is around 20km distance away.
The school is situated in a small village, where there are only around 100 – 200 students studying here. Very small school right?
After passing the main gate, this is the place where the students have their morning assembly.
Oh ya, my mom parks her car under this shade everyday.
The classrooms… Kind of reminding me of my primary school days where teachers writing on the blackboard with chalks, we have to clean the blackboard with duster, sweep the dusty floor, and of course, studying on the table with lots of drawings and cravings on it.. haha…
The canteen is really small too. Enough for all the students to have their meals.
Nice little pond in the school area. The students here always hang around the school even after classes. They will go home and have a bath, then cycle back into the school and play around everything they can play with. Sometimes it make me think that living in a small village is not a bad thing after all. Life is much slower and easier here comparing to the cities.
