Back to School!

In spirit of the “Back to School” season, here are some fun facts about school you probably didn’t know! 
1. It is believed that the Christ Hospital School in London in 1552 was the first school to use a school uniform.
2. Before backpacks, school kids had to use leather straps to carry their books to school! 
3. The largest school in the world is in India and it has over 32,000 students.
4. The "lead" pencil was invented in 1564 when a huge graphite mine was discovered in Borrowdale, Cumbria, England. And it doesn’t contain any lead!
