If you are among those lucky people who goes to school through private cars or school busses then you definitely need to thank your parents or the people who supports you to have that kind of advantage wholeheartedly now because not all children are lucky enough to enjoy that kind of life.
Did you know that less fortunate children do extraordinary things just to show up in school? Some students walk their way to school tirelessly despite the distance and unfavorable climate.
One student in China even had to walk his way to school despite the very cold weather, causing his hair to freeze entirely and frostbite in his cheeks.
The diligent student was identified as Wang Fuman, a poor kid from Shaoton, Yunnan province. The boy studies at Zhuanshanbao Primary School, situated in the next town where he lives.
Fuman had to walk 3 miles amidst the cold weather just to attend to his class because he had exams.
His teacher was so amused of the boy’s courage to go to school and took a picture of him with frozen hair.
Fuman, unleashing the child within him, was also quite amused with what had happened to his hair. He even made funny faces as he enters their classroom.
Normally, this boy walks to school for about an hour but this day was particularly cold with a temperature of -9 degrees Celsius. His jacket barely kept him warm and he doesn’t have mittens or hat to cover his head.
The school’s headmaster Mr. Fu also revealed that the boy comes from a poor family living only in a mud hut. He and his sister were also abandoned by their mother so they both live with their grandmother instead. Their father works as a migrant worker to support their needs.
Her grandmother, meanwhile, works in a farm and the boy along with his sister helps her do the farm jobs. His hands also have callouses from the hard work he does in the farm.
