Ecole Communautaire Saint Thomas

During exams, a few students look up from their papers to look across Lake Pèligre. At the end of the school day, a few boys climb the palm trees throwing down coconuts to drink from and sliding with bare feet and grace that is honed by practice. The community of Roche Mulatre is a neighboring school to the Summits school of Palissa. Here, class is held beneath the trees and a fragile structure of sticks.
