Things you can’t do at school when the electricity goes out for an extended period of time:

• Use the projector to display your writing questions.

• Get into your email to find the writing questions you have saved as an attachment.

• Make a photo copy of the one hard copy of the writing questions you do have (thanks to your super colleague who was smart enough to print them out for you the night before).

**Generally the electricity goes out and them comes right back on with the back up generator but today we seemed to be having issues for some reason. Just goes to show you have to always be prepared for technology to fail.

  1. Strange–so much about your school sounds incredibly advanced, and yet they have these kind of infrastructure problems! Kinda heartening to hear 🙂

    • Yes! Another thing is the buildings are really old and over crowded so in some classes the desks fill the entire room and there is barely space to walk! When you are in conditions like that all day it’s easy to forget that parents are paying a lot of money for their kids to attend this school. But it’s a trade off. There are other great things (like computer labs, and soon Smart Boards in every classroom.

  2. Indeed! Living here makes you realize how much we take for granted in the states,,how and how much we depend on electricity and technology..Scary right?
