Can we try so hard to go to our school --Extreme Road To School..................37113


 

Extreme Road To School




Children walk along a narrow mountain road to get to school in Bijie, southwest China's Guizhou Province. Banpo Elementary School is located halfway up a mountain and each day students from the nearby Genguan village have to climb a narrow winding footpath cut into the mountainside...Picture: HAP/Quirky China News / Rex Features

The footpath is cut through the cliff face at points. It is less than 0.5 metres wide in places so the children have to walk single file and press themselves into the side of the mountain is someone wants to squeeze past. According to headmaster Xu Liangfan the school has 49 students.Picture: HAP/Quirky China News / Rex Features






Each day 20 determined pupils have to cross the local river like circus performers after the suspension bridge collapsed in heavy rain.Picture: Panjalu Images / Barcroft Media




Teacher Li Guilin helps children climb one of five rickety wooden ladders to reach their school on a cliff 2,800m above sea level, in Gangluo County, Sichuan Province, China. The children would spend the week at the school before repeating the dangerous journey in order to get home for the weekend...Picture: Quirky China News / Rex Features




The wooden ladders on the approach to the school have been replaced with a metal staircase that makes the ascent much easier and safer.Picture: Quirky China News / Rex Features































Five-year-old  Lu Siling rides with her desk on the back of her mother's motorbike on the first day of school in Macheng, China. There are 5,000 pupils at the schools in the town, but only about 2,000 desks. So more than 3,000 children have to go to school with desks and chairs, like their parents' generation. Some children even use their parents' old desks.Picture: China Foto Press / Barcroft Media

Students carry their belongings as they trek back to school from home on a rugged mountain path in Dahua Yao Autonomous County, southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. As the children live in mountains far away from the village school, most of them stay there during the school year and return home for the summer and other  holidays.Picture: KeystoneUSA-ZUMA / Rex Features
