BACK TO SCHOOL (FROM DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW)



To start off our second week, here's a picture that shows, very expressively, how going back to school can been seen from different points of view...
- a girl from Primary schools seems to go very happily laughing and jumping.
- a toddler doesn't seem to like his first day at nursery school very much and cries.
- a Secondary school student isn't happy at all and grumbles about it.
- a College student seems to be tired before he even starts because of all the work he has to do.
- and finally a mum goes wild because she doesn't have to cope with her children at home.
