The elementary school children rise early, have a hot breakfast, and then walk to their school which is very close to the Children’s home. They return to the home for an one hour hot lunch and then finish their school day until late in the afternoon. When the school day is complete, they play for a while, bathe, and have a hot dinner. Before bedtime they have devotions and study their school work.
