Saturday Photo Hunt --- School





SCHOOL

Again I was stumped for this theme so I just decided to go take some quick photos. This is one of three schools my children attended growing up and the only one still left standing. It was a small school really and right at the end of our block so not far for them to walk to and fro. It backs onto the woods of a Provincial park reserve and there is a large frog pond just behind it. All in all a wonderful place to go to school.



It was recess time for one class at least and they were playing on the "toys" in the large adjacent playground and soccer field. Sorry it was a grey day so the sky is pretty washed out. Click to enlarge if you wish.


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

I am finding the themes really difficult at the moment. Your photos sum up school very nicely.

I hope you have a great weekend :-)

This looks like such a nice neighborhood school. I like the idea of a school having a frog pond.

Happy weekend, Annie

Sounds like a lovely school :)

Great take on the theme JMB. What could be better than being able to walk to school and having frogs nearby.

the school looks so clean and it's cool to have a frog pond in the school compound.

Hi jmb --

I really like seeing what regular (non touristy) life looks in other parts of the world -- and your photos help give me that. So appreciate them, grey day or not. :)

No Second Life schools JMB? I went back to my Primary School a few years ago. I just could not comprehend how small it seemed.

I find it a bit sad when they tear down schools. I spent ten years teaching in a school, and when I saw the theme I was also at a loss. I ended up stretching the theme a bit.

A school is not a school is not ...
its quality depends on the quality of its teachers, hm.
A lovely weekend to you and the old scientist.

What beautiful surroundings for a school. Much better than being in a concrete jungle.
