Finally the new primary school was finished. It drew inspiration from an old police station in the historical Sunset Valley.
The new school had a larger library
with plenty of new books
and computers for research projects.
Ilila was glad that Rosemarie was back from her maternity leave.
She had to admit that she thought that she would be losing a teacher as Rosemarie and Henry were surprised when they had triplets instead of the twins they were expecting.
She didn't know how they managed to survive on such little sleep, but the couple had worked out a plan for them to split their paternity leave instead of leaving their jobs at the primary school.
Ilila was able to find another fulltime teacher as well as the long-term subsitute. Walter was a pro with the kids, which was good since there were so many of them.
The cafeteria thankfully held more than enough room for all of them,
but Ilila still had work to do.
She wanted to outsource the meals for the students as her current chef was still insisting that mac&cheese was a healthy lunch.
The children enjoyed the larger play area
with new equipment
to burn off pent up energy
from sitting in class all day
and gardens which made science activities on bugs so much easier.
and Ilila was especially proud of how the new kindergarten room turned out,
just in time for the largest kindergarten class they enrolled in a long time
and Jasmine was enjoying being able to focus on the little ones.
It was bright and cheerful
with plenty of spaces for exploration and learning
and making new friends.
The other classrooms also boasted of more space
and resources for learning. Now Ilila could focus on getting the secondary school completed for the influx of new students.
A tour of the school is posted on N99, but I will add it to the blog as well.
