February it is!

February, when the days of winter seem endless
and no amount of wistful recollecting
can bring back any air of summer.

February is here, and this means that Spring is not far behind! Isn’t that some good news? February is the shortest month of the year. It has only 28 days in a common year and 29 when it is a leap year. Usually this month is associated with rain and cold weather.  However it is the last full month of Winter!

February brings along some important festivities such as that of the shipwreck of Saint Paul, Saint Valentine and Carnival. The 40 days of Lent also start during February. These days lead us to Easter.

February is a very important month at school as it is Half Yearly Examinations time. All students in the upper classes sit for these exams and that is why this month is also associated with revision and studying.  Well, let us all wish you good luck and hope that you all do well in the forthcoming exams.
