raju’s biographies…

M y student Raju brings me a small book (see previous post) that he has made during his spare time. He made a small biography of some of the other boys in my class…
Am blown away yet again, it’s so nice, am also gutted as he is in 9th Class,in his penultimate year at school so next year he can’t be in my class. 10th Class is mega serious here and there is no time for anything outside the syllabus…i miss him already…
