After a few months when we had settled into life in the new country, I went to kindergarten three mornings a week.
I liked to sit on the swing there.
When it was morning tea time, all the children sat at a long table and we were given biscuits and milk. Whilst the kindergarten ladies were pouring milk into each child’s cup, we had to sit with our hands on our heads. When everyone had their milk, we were allowed to take our hands off our heads and morning tea began.
“Hands on heads” and “More milk please” were the first English sentences I learnt at kindergarten.
