After lunch: Students who don’t live in campus go home either before or after lunch , students who do usually go to their dorm for an afternoon rest.

Afternoon: Extra classes like ag and English are in the afternoons. Often students wash their clothes (by hand- no washing machines in dorms). Sometimes they have other activities to do like cleaning/gardening the school- like SMBC duties.
