Never before had she given herself so completely and so cheerfully as now.
Her maternal instincts were all aroused. For this boy. Ah, indeed, why? When she had seen Sasha off to school, she returned home quietly, content, peaceful and overflowing with love. Her face, which had grown younger in the last six months, smiled and beamed. People who met her were pleased as they looked at her. How are you getting on, darling? Yesterday the first class had a fable to learn by heart, a Latin translation, and a problem.
And she spoke of the teacher and the lessons and the textbooks, repeating exactly what Sasha said about them. In the evening they did his homework together, both crying at how difficult it was. When she put him to bed, she stayed a long time making the sign of the cross over him, muttering a prayer. And when she lay in bed, she dreamed of the far-away, misty future when Sasha would finish his studies and become a doctor or an engineer, have a large house of his own, with horses and a carriage, marry and have children.

Sadly, conditions at the village school here are much worse than I expected.
For example, there are pupils here from 7 to 11 years old, and there is only one teacher, Mrs Da Silva, and she teaches them all at the same time. For this reason, they only go to school for four hours a day. Mrs Da Silva tries really hard and she is so busy that it's impossible for her to give everyone the help they need. She is also not very well-paid and gets no support. What is more, if the children want to continue school after Year 4, then they have to go and live in Porto De Moz, the town where the nearest large school is.
Unfortunately, though, this means that they have to stay with another family and get a job to pay for their rent and food because it is quite far away.

Endangered Species The Loggerhead Sea Turtle j Did you know that in the last years, species - like the passenger pigeon, the dodo, and the golden toad - are known to have died out?
Or that by the year some scientists believe that half of the world's species may be extinct? That could be one species every 20 minutes, or 27, a year! At the moment, experts say that up to 16, species are under threat. In most cases, human activity is the greatest danger to these species. One of these species is the loggerhead sea turtle, which is finding that the beaches it uses to lay its eggs are becoming increasingly popular with tourists.
When the eggs begin to hatch in August, there are already thousands of humans enjoying the sun on the beaches. An area that was used by turtles for thousands of years is now the territory of sunbathers, swimmers and ice-cream vendors.
Humans cause terrible damage to the eggs. Nests can be walked on by tourists, destroying the eggs. In addition, the newly-born turtles find it hard to find the sea at night with so much artificial light around. Some people, however, are trying to make a difference. Since , the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece has done its best to protect this rare species.
With help from the World Wildlife Fund WWF , it has bought a beach popular with the turtles and makes sure that tourists stay away. Thanks to their help, more and more young turtles are finding their way to the sea. You can help. Then, tell the class three things you remember from the text.
