Writer was arrived to No (2) Basic Education Hight School, Maung Daw in Rakhine State’s Maund Daw trip. Meet with headmistress Daw Hla May Thein and tells her, writer wants to give pocket money to students. Headmistress Daw Hla May Thein was arranged for that.
There have no middle and high class students because of morning shift. The middle and high class students are attended on evening shift. So only primary class students are on morning shift. Headmistress was ordered to lining up boys and girls. KG students are lining up in classroom because they are young. Writer’s group was given 200 kyats to each of students, butterfly dolls and sunflower doll and hair clip for girls. And also given coffee mix to boys. There are 1047 students. All students are Bengali. They don’t know how to greet “Mingalarpar”. They can’t speak Myanmar language. They just shake of their head what has been asked. After all, when we wave goodbye to them, they were greeted enthusiastically.
They are cute children. There have over 2400 students in No (2) Basic Education Hight School, Maung Daw. There have no ethnic children from KG class to Grade 6. Ethnic children are in Grade 7, 8, 9 and 10. Only 210 ethnic children in the school. The Bengali students will be remembrance for Maung Daw trip.
