The objectives of the study were to determine (1) the struggles and challenges experienced by the pupils, (2) the lessons learned by the pupils, and (3) what makes the pupils happy despite their long journey of going to school. Three grade VI pupils were chosen purposively. The data were gathered through the use of an in-depth interview with the pupils and parents. The study found out that pupils who lived far from school experience walking in the rain, tracing uneven path, walking the muddy and rocky way, passing along the sleepy hill. In their daily journey towards school, they also experienced braving the cold and freezing rain, breezing wind, their tired body had endured as they walked everyday from home to school. The experience of the pupils along with their journey also implied the same feeling and emotions regarding happiness.
