As Mobile As Can Be

§ 1. Here I am in the school Cardinal-Roy, for the first time. It’s also the first time I go anywhere with my WiMax modem and my laptop. So here I am waiting for the first group of students: class will be starting in half hour or so. And, here I am, also able to write in this blog, or n@vigate on the Web, or check my em@il.

§ 2. If had to or wanted to, I could even phone the secretariat, with the Skype program installed on my computer: I actually entered the number, just in case and for the fun of it… As for the Internet connection, it is entering at 100%, since the five lights are on. Well, students are starting to come in… What’s nice with secondary IV students, as these actual ones, is that they quickly calm down and settle to work…

§ 3. This group has a nice 23 students and the following one, 22 ; it seems that not all schools pile up students, to save money, not to say that some schools would actually do that… All of them are working quite seriously…

§ 4. Bonifacio fortifications are in Corsica, did I just find out in Wikipedia; the text they’re reading and working on mentions those fortifications; having @ccess to the Web enabled me to quickly find out that they are in Corsica; I must admit that I hadn’t really registered in my brain, that the French word « Corse » is translated by Corsica… 10 more minutes or so to this class…

What’s interesting at this school is that some of the students have three classes in the morning. They start at 8h20 and finish at 12h30; in the afternoon, they go and practice their sport: some play baseball, others, judo, soccer, hockey, even kayak… Well, the first group has gone; here comes the next one…
