The monochrome room was filled with unsmiling faces. Each weekday morning, returning to the routine, they would arrive, take their seats and listen to the endless drone. At times pens would be raised and words or numbers written.
This was the way it had been until the great change came one morning.
Each arrived and sat, awaiting the drone but, today, one smiled and said, “Red.”
Another smiled, “Blue.”
Yet another, “Yellow.”
Soon smiles and colours filled the once monochrome room.
It hadn’t taken much.
The great change, their new teacher, smiled, “Good morning, class. What great things would YOU like to learn today?”
