Maybe they didn't fancy the trigonometry lesson and thought the saline drip sounded more appealing.

They are a strange bunch with all this mass fainting thing.

Good bowl of cornflakes with full fat milk and 3 tablespoons of sugar in the morning will sort this issue out.......

Global child nutrition forum kicks off in Cambodia to address school meal program

PHNOM PENH, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- The 21st Global Child Nutrition Forum kicked off in Siem Reap province in northern Cambodia on Monday, aiming to address challenges in school meal program implementation, said a joint press release.

The five-day event is being hosted by the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS), together with the Global Child Nutrition Foundation (GCNF) and the World Food Program (WFP) Centre of Excellence against Hunger.

The forum brought more than 350 delegates from some 60 countries and regions, the release said, adding that delegates from governments, United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations, business and research institutions would share insights, successes, and challenges in school meal program implementation.

"The school feeding program has been regarded as one of Cambodian government's priorities as stated in the national education strategic plan (2019-2023)," said Hang Chuon Naron, Cambodian Minister of Education, Youth and Sports.

"Thanks to the long-standing partnership with WFP and many other partners, we are now transitioning our school feeding implementation to fully home-grown, which means school meals will be more nutritious and diverse and, at the same time, smallholder farmers will be supported and local economies boosted," he said.

According to the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, more than 260,000 students at 1,167 primary schools in eight Cambodian provinces have benefited from free school meals so far in the 2018-2019 academic year, with support from the WFP and other development partners.

They don't exactly look stick-thin, though. They've not got kwashiorkor or anything. Do they not have a bike shed to hide behind to bunk off PE?

Remember the time when half a school passed out - and they blamed it on the trees having their periods?
or doing some silly seasonal thing like that.

I think it fair to assume the lone boy who passed out is also a fabulous dancer with beautiful eye lashes and a great taste in shoes.

The above sentence is bold for no apparent reason.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Was it not because the trees had used up all the oxygen ?
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
