World's Oldest First Year Pupil

There is no age limit for education and Ma Xiunxian from China has proved it.  Ma is 102 year old and world's oldest first standard pupil.



Ma never got a chance to go to school because of her poor family background which forced her to work in a cotton mill.   Wesan Road Elementary School  offered a place in elementary class after knowing her education ambitions.  Due to old age, Ma relies on hearing aid and magnifying glass for her lessons.
