Daily School Life in Abu Dis

This week at Abu Dis Girls School we asked the girls to write about and draw pictures of their daily school life.
They talked about what time they woke up, what they had for breakfast, what they did at school and any after school activities. We took pictures of the posters they made and the uniforms they wear on a daily basis.

We wondered how much everyday school life differs between here and England. Perhaps we can exchange information on what they differences and similarities are.

What is it like to go to school in Camden vs Abu Dis?

Today at Abu Dis Girl’s school we spent our first class getting to know each other. Waad, Manar, Ashar, Sahar, Shahed, Tamara, Ghida’a, Malak, Shaden and Khadeeja told me a bit about themselves and then we chatted about what they would most like to ask the girls who go to Camden School for Girls. They said they would like to know what it is like to live in London as a school girl and had lots of questions about what school is like there.
We thought it would be nice to make a ‘day in the life of a school girl’ blog about Abu Dis Girl’s School with photos so that you can see what school is like today in Palestine. And it would be great to have the same back!

The things they most wanted to know were:
-          Do you like school in London and what do you like most/dislike most?

-          What time do you wake up, start school and finish school each day?

-          What does your uniform look like? (maybe we can have a picture?)

-          What subjects do you learn and do any of you learn Arabic?

-          What do you normally eat for lunch at school?
