Since, ideally, all children are supposed to take lessons from the Harper, the Harper would probably notice who are the exceptionally bright children and help them along the way.

In the minor holds like Half Circle Seahold, there is too much work to be done for everyone not to do their work. Even the children gather food and mend nets; all the men are out fishing; the women are cooking, cleaning, sewing. The "old aunties" seem to be relegated to the kitchen, where Mavi has the final word.

The major holds seem to consist of a main hold surrounded by small cotholds of one or two families, who work the fields around their cot. The main hold is large enough that there is more maintenance work required.
