On the school table everything happens… We rest our elbows upon it during long reading sessions. This is the tabletop of books and papers where one writes, listens and works through education. We get to intimately know these tables through the everyday of the school routine, the stage for so many happy and sad moments in the life of a child. We get to know its top with its scratches and broken corners, we also know the sound of our scribbling on its surface. These tables also come to the rescue when surfaces are required for a communal lunch or group drawing session. The school table is never solitar y, it is part of sets and classes but my table is only my own.
