The kids were super excited as always to head back to school. Who doesn’t love the first couple of days – new clothes, new backpack, crisp unmarred notebooks, long pencils with erasers intact, pens that work, and of course, new bicycles!
The proud new 7th graders the first up and on their way not wanting to waste a moment getting those bikes on the road.
Meet the newest Wat Opot Bicycle Gang!!
As they walked the short path to the grade school.
It was a new beginning for Mr. Wey and Srey Nith, both enrolled in the first grade this year!
SaOun and Chay welcomed Srey Nith to their ‘big-kids-who-go-to-school’ club. They wanted to bring Pompous with them (before the feline met his demise a few weeks ago).
Rortana was given her own little school bag since she was in a sense “a child left behind”.
Her loneliness was short-lived though as it wasn’t long before Wey and Srey Nith came trotting back to Wat Opot….seems they are just too young and will have to wait another year.
Neither was too worried though since they get to join Virak in English school in the Creative Learning Center instead!
