My contribution to Leanne Coles Monochrome Madness for this week is taken in Barcelona.
You can see, the teacher’s desk in the school for the workers kids at the construction site of La Sagrada Familia. I’ll tell you more on La Sagrada in one of my next posts. Only so much for now, there was (and still is) a small building for the architect, the plans and to hold planning meeting. One of the rooms was equipped with several benches, a blackboard and some maps: the school.
Here, the workers kids (usually uneducated) get the opportunity to learn. One intention for this, beside the philanthropic idea, might have been to get new workers, but these would already have a certain kind of knowledge in math and technique. So, they might get better jobs at the construction site.
I’ll show you some more photos from inside the school soon, too.
So, stay tuned. Take care!
