Some pictures for y’all of TISOL – The International School of Lae.
Cody led his class assembly on Friday with an aplomb noted by many. Seriously, he did very well.
The school bell can be heard at our house, almost a kilometer away. I suspect this is actually a war relic.
I nearly cried the first time I went into the library because it reminded me so much of my own primary school library. They even have the same books. This place is so 1970s.
There are two main playgrounds and neither would pass OHS standards in Australia, and would soon be replaced with rubber and tanbark and plastic in primary colours. I think they are great. And, broken arms don’t happen nearly as much as you’d think!
A rare shot of the pool when it isn’t green.
The ground staff are enthusiastic. When the grass is mowed and all the trees are cut down its time to mow that pesky patch of concrete in front of the canteen.
Do you remember the days of the old school yard?
We used to cry a lot!
(Probably because of all those broken arms).
In other news – happy birthday Paul K. also, The Chief Justice of PNG just got arrested so things could be interesting here legal wise. We leave in three weeks to go on holiday. Hopefully nothing kicks off before then.
