School in New Zealand and Argentina. Mía lives in Paraguay, but she goes to school in Argentina every day. Miro studies in a rainforest clearing in New Zealand… Mía has a long way to go every day to attend school. She lives with her grandparents in Paraguay, close to the border to Argentina. Many women in Paraguay go to Argentina to give birth, which makes the children Argentinian nationals and allows them to go to school there. Mía’s Argentinian school is for free. In Paraguay, she would have to pay tuition. As it is, Mía needs to row in a boat for an hour and then walk for another one. She is feeling a little weak- kneed today as well – she is expected to present her home country to the entire class, perform a dance and even sing a song in her native language Guaraní… Miro lives in Auckland, New Zealand. Four days a week, she attends a normal public school. Every fifth day, however, her class sets out into the rainforest of New Zealand – to go to forest school! There, Miro learns how to start fires, climb trees and play in the mud. Laws of natural sciences, such as gravity or buoyancy, are taught in a very hands-on manner here. This time, Miro faces a very special task: Her group is to build a raft. It has to be buoyant enough to take all pupils safely across the sea. Miro is put in charge of her group. Conflict isn't far off. Will Miro be able to keep her team together, and will her group be able to launch a functional raft in the end?
