Since September 2016, the school has moved to a five-day working schedule, and now the students have to go home on Friday and come back for the first lesson on Monday.
Ksyusha’s house is in the village of Maza, 200 km from Samara. It’s an 8 hours trip — minibus, bus, electric train, metro. All the transport runs on time, and much time is wasted for waiting. Because of the long way, Ksenia misses lessons on Monday and Friday.
We went through her usual route from home to school together. After the publication of the material in “Takie dela”, students of the school were allowed to stay at school on weekends.
