The thing I enjoyed most about the whole visit is how relaxed the school is.  It is not laid back - no - it’s quite full of energy, but there is no sense of stress. The children are simply going about their education in such a happy way and the teachers all show that too. It’s quite an achievement, to create a school like that.
