Yesterday I read that UK schools are taking away play areas from the premises, in the wake of all the insurnace claims..

Take a look at this:

Quote

These schoolchildren in southern China are so keen to get to school that they make the perilous journey on narrow wooden ladders every day, with no safety precautions.

Their village in the remote Badagong mountains in Sangzhi county is surrounded by sheer drops on every side, making the school run a daily struggle.

The only way out of Zhang Jiawan village, unless the children have time for a four-hour cross country detour, is via a series of rickety-looking ladders leading down to the valley below.

That is some seriously beautiful landscape.  The views at the top must make the daily climb up and down worthwhile just on their own.  I don't know how I would feel if I had a child so young making the daily journey though, surely they are supervised?

Imagine all the fresh mountain air 24/7 - I'm more than a little jealous.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Dad “what’s for dinner love
Mum “not sure yet, it depends who how many make it home from school
Dad “so there’s a chance of extra portions then
