School Built Inside A Cave

A remote Chinese village has built a school in a giant mountain cave. The school, named Middle Cave School, is located in the middle cave of a mountain in Getu village, Guizhou province.

It has expanded from just one class when it first opened to having eight teachers and 186 students, reports Sohu News.

"The students are very eager for knowledge, and the student who lives the farthest has to walk six hours each day," says the headmaster.

The school is like a normal school in every other way, with classrooms and a playground, but most of the buildings have no roofs "since they're not necessary", adds the head.
