Many thanks to Renee Waun for this post on a typical school day at ABC Divine Foundation Primary School in Uganda.
Boarding students get up and have a breakfast of porridge.
Day students begin arriving and school starts at 7:30am.
All students line up for morning assembly (announcements, etc.) before going to classes.
There is one period of recess in the morning (about ½ hour) and one in the afternoon.
Lunch of porridge and red beans is served from 1-2pm.
School is dismissed at 5:30 in the evening on Monday to Friday. School is in session 8:30 am to 1:30 pm on Saturdays.
When the day students leave, the boarding students bathe, eat food, and then go for revision lessons up to 9:30 pm, when they go to bed.
The boarding students get another meal before they go to bed, but sometimes they do not get a second meal (porridge) if finances are bad that week.
Here are some photos of the students at the Divine Foundation Primary School.
How is your life similar or different to that of a child at the ABC Divine Foundation School in Uganda?
Was there anything that surprised you about the lives of these children?
