Each year the American School takes a field trip to get to know the country better and to be able to interact with people in other areas of the country. This event is called School-On-The-Road.

During these events, the students keep up with their studies where ever they are. Here we are on the veranda of the Catholic Mission at Beteau Oya.
The next day we visited the ferry over the Loam river. That was a great place to swim, study the design of a primitive ferry, and interact with the local folks.
Here is picture while on board the ferry.
Another year we camped by a beautiful little stream near Garoua Boulai for three days. While there we studied the ecology of the area.
