At ten o’clock all the children of the school came together at the square. There were a lot of parents as well. The new principal had a very positive speech about the plans of this year and also about some changes in the board. I don’t think my kids are interested in such speeches but it has to be done, I think. After the speech there were some songs and it is nice to hear a large group of children singing. It made me emotional. At this point I decided, seeing my children were doing fine, to go home for one hour.
