A School where most children have never seen a car in their life
Hobe Christ the King Primary School is located in a remote part of Simbu Province in the Karamui District where there is no road excess and almost three quarters of the people, mostly children, have never seen a car in their life. After so many years of hearing negative stories about this place I decided to go there. So I applied and was posted there.

It was 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, when I left the Fratelli Centre in Rmeileh for the Sacred Heart High School in Gemmayze, located less than two kilometres (as the crow flies) from the harbour of Beirut.
