S-Cool Days

Kathryn Quinn

These primary school pupils kept their cool during exams in tropical temperatures in eastern China - after teachers placed huge bowls if ice in the classroom.

Governors at Chenhu Elementary School in Shandong province say they are too broke to pay for air conditioning or even fans.

So teachers helped these 11-year-olds to avoid getting hot under the collar about their end of year finals.

"It gets up to 35 degrees in the classrooms and the children start to wilt very quickly just when they need to be at their freshest," explained one.
