School Stories: Wacky Hair Friday


The following is a project.

The challenge was to build a “play park”, make a brochure to explain where, what and the cost. This project has the Egyptian Pyramids with water slides. The Beehive our Parliament building The Titanic halfway out of the water. Eifel Tower in Paris with a slide going down, Colosseum in Rome with an ice rink inside. The last one I did not show because I don’t want to get involved in politics. The girl made a brochure with excellent information in it.

Wild windy weather and water everywhere.

To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.

School Stories: Do you recognise the dog?


The second term is gone.

Half year reports have been handed out.

Some are excited to come back next term.

Some don’t feel that good!

The last three weeks of the term in the Before School Class we tried our hands at making dogs using a toilet roll six egg holder cups and some string, cotton, wool or in this case some raffia.

Only one ended up the wall.

Hopefully, we will see more next term(children were very slow in finishing them off)
