Too cold for school


What a way to start school.  Minus 1 degrees.  Sjoe.  Too cold.

Minus 1 might not sound cold to many of my overseas friends, however, let’s explain. 

With no central heating in classrooms, it’s pretty much as cold if not colder IN the classrooms.  Not pleasant.

I can’t remember when last we’ve had such a cold winter.  Not so much the low temperature as the constant cold.  It just doesn’t get warmer!

  1. I agree with you – with now centralized heating in South Africa, these temperatures sure are low

    • We’ve been very lucky with the flu so far *touch wood!* It’s just Quintus that had it but also just for a weekend that he was REALLY sick

  5. Must be the global warming, eh? :o) I had no idea your schools did not having heating! Will the schools add days on at the end of the school year to make up the “cold” days? Here in the U.S. if they public schools close due to snow or inclement weather – they tack days on at the end to make them up.

    we have winters like you

    dont the classrooms have heaters?
    If they are put on long enough I find they do an ok job of warming the room

    • Oh they do have but they aren’t warm by the time the kids go into the classes. I don’t know if they are enough. Shame, I’m cold in my office and I’m sitting right next to a heater! 😉
