"Five Teachers, Two Students" joke
A private high school north of the Philippines capital Manila has five teachers but only two students, a local newspaper reports.
The school, in the bustling city of Urdaneta, is allowed to stay open as the two students have grades that fulfill the requirements of a program for high schools specialising in science, the Philippines Star newspaper said.
The students, a boy and a girl, at the Special Science High School of the Lyceum Northwestern Florencia Duque College are taught in regular subjects like English, mathematics, science and music.
However, during their physical education lessons, they are limited to playing two-person games like badminton and chess.
Even if one student is absent, classes still proceed as scheduled, the newspaper said.
School administrator Arfe Castillo conceded that the situation was odd but said "we are assured we get 100 per cent participation".
