First Day Of School

Scarlett is going into year 3 at Exmouth District High School. There is only one school here in Exmouth and it is a combined primary and high school with about 400 kids. Some of these kids come from as far away as Coral Bay 150kms away!

Scarlett's first day of school
We are 40kms out of town so poor Scarlett is first on and last off her little bus. We meet to bus up at the front gate a 7:15 and she gets to school approx. 8:15 for an 8:30am start. It's an early morning, but with that comes an early finish of 2:30pm to account for the heat up here in summer.

 We are really lucky Ronnie let's Scarlett take here ipad on the bus so she can watch movies and play games. And Wednesday is lolly day on the bus, a huge hit with the kids as Ronnie gives them all lollies for the ride home.

Off we go for the hour long trip to school

Being the only kid on base has it's perks!

Her teacher is Miss Alborough who we met last year on our familiarity visit in Now, she is lovely.
Scarlett does really love school, but the heat has really knocked her. When I asked her how school is going? she tells me she hates recess and lunch. The heat can get up to 47 deg here, and the kids hate going outside. It's not unusual for Miss Alborough to find them sitting at the class room door at the end of break trying to feel the air-conditioning coming under from inside.
There is air-conditioning in the library, but they only allow so many kids in at a time. So I always let Scarlett know if it is going to be over 40 deg that morning, so on break she can make a run for it to the library and can get in before they close the doors.
