Style all around

I can't help thinking that those kids had a better sense of dressing style than our contemporaries.

And for integrated schooling they appear to be like 20 years or more ahead of much of the mainland.

Makes a teacher glad

I have taught kids of this age, and rarely seen such universal engagement, as in this photo. Especially impressive as it's probably sunny and 77 outside.
