Oh, well. Better late than never.
Classes in the High School were cancelled due to the heavy rainfall around 11 o'clock. The announcement fortunately arrived in the dying minutes of the class session, so not too much time was lost to the joyous shouting and rejoicing that erupted with the news. In my class, we could hear the ruckus from the third year wing, but, since the students were working on a seatwork, I was able to keep them on course to finish. It was only when the messenger bearing the news passed by the classroom that I allowed the students to celebrate.
I just wish that the announcement came earlier, considering that the downpour was already pounding early this morning. That way, it wouldn't be such a hassle for people to call for someone to fetch them. The sad part for some students is that, since the people slated to fetch them may be tied up elsewhere, they're stuck in school until later this afternoon.
As for me, I'm heading home with the end of this post. Hallelujah!
I can sleep.
