Massages, boat classes, boxing and lessons in bunkers: amazing features of schools from around the world

For most of us, school years are not only learning, but also a fun pastime with classmates. And, of course, we were all very afraid of bad grades, as the teachers censured for it, and the parents at home punished.


Exercise and facial massage in a Chinese school

The Chinese do daily exercises before the start of lessons, and twice a day a facial massage is provided for students.

As for the holidays, Chinese schoolchildren rest only one month in the summer, and the lessons themselves last 10-12 hours a day, including additional classes.

Relaxing school in Finland

In Finnish schools, it is forbidden to call a child to the board unless he or she wishes to do so. There are no exams in schools either, and the grades obtained in the lesson can be seen in the electronic journal.

Lack of ratings in Norway

In order not to make students feel stupid and somewhat disadvantaged, schools in Norway begin to give grades to students only after the eighth grade.

Male teachers in Japan

A distinctive feature of schools in Japan is the predominant number of male teachers.

By the way, there are no canteens in schools, and students eat right at their desks.

Boxing and massage in Thailand

Thai boys from early childhood are given to boxing, and girls - to learn the basics of massage. Apparently, this is what justifies such a great demand for massage therapists in the country.

Yoga in Vietnamese Schools

Exercises and daily yoga classes are mandatory for all students in Vietnamese schools.

Schools on the water in Bangladesh

Floods often occur in this state, so there are more than a hundred schools on the water in Bangladesh. They are located right in the boats! Meanwhile, every student has access to the Internet and a local library.

Tens of thousands of students in schools in India

Uk's Oldest School

The oldest educational institution of our planet, built in 597, is located in Canterbury, England. Despite the limitation of the foundation, today the school is equipped with the latest equipment and many children study in it.

Study outside the classroom in Denmark

The Danish school "Orestad" is fundamentally different from others, because it does not divide into classes or rooms for education. Without exception, all students study in one common large room.

Lack of grades and homework in a Canadian school

Education in one of the local schools in the country is fundamentally different from the traditional one: children may not obey, grades are not given to them, and students choose lessons themselves, based on their preferences. Actually, classes are formed not by age, but by the interests of students.

American Underground School

Built in the second half of the last century in the US state of Virginia, the school is underground. In times of energy crisis, such a coating stored not only heat, but also energy in the room.
