P3563 - Unknown classroom. The floor and walls are made of brick, and the stools are fashioned out of wood. The furniture is strewn about the room, and the chalkboard is very dirty.

There are candles and flower on the altar and a white railing around the outside with two baskets of fruit rested atop.
