yes 12-1PM is lunch break. we have the same school timings.
but our classes is until 5PM only. Because some of the area near to our places
has timings for buses so it's hard for them to go home if they go home so late.
you know some areas they live in rice field and hardly see any bus or jeepney
because they only commute by tricycle, bus or jeepney.

Usually people in the provinces when it's already 8PM or 9PM, you'll hear nothing
but those insects at night. A little laid-back and simple & Manila people are awake for 24hrs.
I guess that's the difference between province and city.

my mother's hometown is a town surrounded by ricefields.....but the school is within the town...so most children just walk to school or take a tricycle if their tired
it was harder when my grandmother taught in school...she had to take a boat and walk...at the time there was no paved roads

Our school is just nearby to our house. I always walk since grade school to high school, I remembered my grandmother. She used to gave us a daily task for the household so when she wakes up in the morning the house is already clean including the front and backyard, breakfast prepared and then we have scheduled for who will wash the dishes from morning-evening lol that's how my grandmother discipline us.

I think provincial folks just raised differently ....children are so much more well behaved and you can see the respect between parent and child

I guess it's also depends on the parent on how they bring up the children because sometimes society influence them too. The people around them when they go out from the house.

It's unthinkable for me to imagine the kids going to school for one whole day throughout the week. That's really insane if you ask me.

if you think about the work week of the average visayan its actually peanuts.....their parents work out in the rice field and tending the livestock from 6 AM to 7PM Sunday is a time for rest though
LOL and people call filipinos lazy..
I admire the work ethic of rural filipinos
