KAOLE AND SALTDAL STUDENTS
are many differences between an 18-year old in Norway and an 18-year
old in Tanzania. Part of the aims of this trip is to experience these
differences and at the same time realize that the one is not more
correct than the other. We travelled to learn from them and not to
together with Norwegian and Tanzanian students and decided to write
about one day at each of the schools. We took pictures of the schools
and compared them.

One day at Saltdal Secondary school
The school starts at 7.30 AM. The students drives the bus or they are
walking, it depends on were you live. All the periods last for 45
minutes and we have a break of 10 minutes between each of the periods.
After 4 periods we get a lunchbreak that lasts for 30 minutes. The
students eat food in the cafetreria, either food they bring from home
or food they buy in the cafeteria. After lunch we have 4 new periods of
45 minutes. The schoolday ends at 3 PM.
The way our teachers are teaching the students are different from
teacher to teacher. Some of them are using the blackboard and talking
to the students the whole period, while some of them give the students
exercises to do. We often work in groups and we are able to use
different instruments when we are working, like
cameras,computers,overhead, powerpoint etc. Every student should
be prepared for the lesson. Most of the lessons are in Norwegian, but
subjects like English, French and German are not. We get homework
everyday and sometimes tasks that are going to be handed in to the
teacher for response. We normally have a test in the subjects
after each chapter. All the students have their own books and pens.
They also have their own desk and chair in the classroom. Physical
punishment by the teacher is not allowed in Norway. Schooluniform is not used in any Norwegian schools. The school has a
big library where students can work,read books, use the computer and
have groupwork. The school gets cleaned everyday.
The differences between Kaole and Saltdal upper secondary schools:
In Norway the schools are teaching by using norwegian language, in Tanzanian schools, teachers are using english. Students and all books are written in english language.
Cultur is the total way of life. The way they live is
quite different from us. The students smoke and do
anything they want to do and resisting in totally system at the school
they do not stand in assemblly ground and listen perhaps an anouncement
from the teacher. In Kaole they not allow to smoke and to do anything
they want because they have rules which maintain panctuality the
student of Kaole stand in assembly ground for listening an announcement
from the teacher.
The Saltdal upper secondary school they study but
with the same day they do work. In Kaole secondary school students
study only they must be seriously to study only and not to do any thing
else . The student of Saltdal upper secondary school do not pay a
school fees but in Tanzania the student should pay a school fees .
Environment is the areas which surrounding us .In
saltdal upper secondary school students do not clean their environment
, in kaole secondary school students clean their environment themselves
every day in the morning.
In saltdal upper secondary school they have many
tools for teaching the students and they always based in practicals and
they have model tools which are manufactured tools in kaole secondary
school we have specimen tools being preserved.
