In the last of our geography resources, we experience a typical day for two Ugandan school children
This is the third article in our series about children of the Ssese Islands in Lake Victoria, Uganda. So far we have looked at where the islands are and what they are like, and the role of HUG House. We moved on to see how two of the schools are run, comparing similarities and differences. Now, in the final article, we look at two children and what a typical day is like for them.
A day in the life of Caro
My name is Caroline Nakimbugwe and I am eight years old. I live at HUG House and I am in class P2 at Bridge of Hope School. I get up at 6am, when it’s still dark. By the time I go outside to wash my face in cold water it’s starting to get light, so I sweep the compound with a brush made of grass stems. We then have a small breakfast of bread and tea. I leave for school at 6.40 to be there by 7am. If we are late we are in trouble.
