Winter time at Seng Girls Vocational Training School

The campus in winter is white and it looks like a white coat on the roof of the buildings.

In the morning, the students are wearing thick clothes, and because winter is cold, their face are red. During the winter, the children are the most active. Everyone else is trying to stay warm. After class, the students very quickly run out of the classroom like happy birds. Everywhere you can see students who are playing. Some are on the playground, some are running, some are making snowballs. They are all very happy.

In the previous winters, the students needed to wash their clothes by themselves. However, this winter is different. We now have two washing machines. The clothes washed in the washing machine are very clean and easy to dry. After the clothes are washed, they are put next to the heating in the rooms. No matter how thick, the clothes will be dried the next day.

In the winter, the students are susceptible to cold. Every week, two or three students have a cold. If the students are uncomfortable, our teachers will take the students to the hospital and they also remind students to take medicine. The teachers make sure the students wear thick clothes when they go outside to play in the beautiful white snow.

The the students love winter time at the Seng Girls Vocational Training School.
