Tour de Suisse and Bench Test!

 Week 25

This week we had a nice surprise when the Tour de Suisse passed through the town in the afternoon! 

They closed the road in front of the school all the way through Le Locle and up to La Chaux de Fonds!

We also had a new bench tester! Sense from Thailand!


 Here he is black polishing some screws on a tin plate.
