Lycee Khujada 2: start of term

Day One of home schooling for the children and Skipper is taken aback to learn that ‘triangle quelconque’ is a genuine geometry term taught in the lycee (was insistent it had to be ‘scalène’ with proper Greek roots).

After years of conjugal criticism of the British for dumbing down specific scientific terms for lay colloquialisms (varicelle / varicella versus chickenpox), what good fortune to have the ‘whatever’, or possibly ‘wotevver triangle’.

The children are working hard to start catching up with their respective syllabi, and it’s not straightforward to hold three different classes (5eme, 6eme and CE2) in the same small space, nor is it easy for the children to maintain the discipline of the classroom, particularly when each one is having different lessons and it’s 28-30 degrees outside.


At least the facilities for la récré aren’t too shabby!

And the canteen offers plenty of variety.
