Coming to School
Each morning over 900 students walk to school and each afternoon another 900 students attend. Lower grades learning in the morning and high school students in the afternoon. Uniforms help designate where a student belongs in Bayonnais and with the exception of walking, motorcycles provide mechanical transportation. A single school bus brings teachers from nearby Gonnaives to teach afternoon classes and brings them home again in the evening.
