Some of you walk How long does it take to walk to school? In Africa almost all children have to walk to school It can take them over an hour to walk to school It is a long way and it’s hot too And when they get to school the classrooms are falling apart And there are not enough desks so children have to sit on the floor Sometimes there are no classrooms so they have lessons under a tree And if they do not have enough books they have to share or go without Think about your school and your classroom and your desks Are they very different to a school in Africa? Children in Africa are desperate to go to school and learn Irine wants to be a nurse when she grows up Why would it be hard for Irine to learn at school? Hard to hear if it is windy or raining Lessons are cancelled and students sent home when it rains Hard to concentrate if you don’t have a desk and a chair to sit on Cannot practice writing when you do not have any books Would you want to go to school if it looked like this?
