Boys from rich families come to this school to learn to be priests.

It takes many years to be a priest and the work is hard. As well as learning to read and write, the boys had to clean the school and work on the temple farms.

There were two types of school, one for the rich and one for the poor.  Both boys and girls had to go to school. In school boys were taught arts and crafts, and the girls were taught to cook and other necessities.
