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)

Cooking Spree


The staff of the school had a wonderful evening out on Saturday.

We went to an Azian cooking school.

Everything was ready for the cooking!

The session started 6:30 pm.

The instructor/tutor/chef demonstrated

what we had to do to make a perfect meal.

We first made spring rolls.

Then the main meal:

pork, lemon grass and chilli(which I did not use).

On the plate was a cup of rice and fresh lettuce.

It was very tasteful and delicious to eat.

School Stories: A Real game!


Three little girls playing with

REAL TOYS.

This was during my morning Before School Care shift.

They started playing at 7.30 am

and could not stop playing when they had to go to their classes

at 8.30 am.

It was so good to see these girls playing together.

While they were playing one was watching “My little Pony”

on an iPad

The three older children were playing

“Minecraft” on the Play station.

It was cold and miserable outside.

School stories: Pompoms and bunnies


End of the first term. It was a good term. Lots of highlights. Before school is expanding day by day. After school not that many children as last year. We did a lot of swimming every afternoon while we could.

We made some pompoms.

We were supposed to make bunnies with them but

there wasn’t enough time to finish it off.

At the end, we had some colourful pompoms.

The big pompom was halfway successful.

It was a huge struggle to cut and tie it up.

Even the principal took a go at cutting through the string!

We also used toilet rolls to create

Bunnies

Rockets.

One created a tree with owls perching on the branches.

No photo, sorry! I forgot to take one.

Hope all of you have a good easter weekend!

School Stories: Skink and bicycles


Tuesday morning two children (brother and sister) found a skink on the concrete.

I picked it up and put it between the foliage.

I first had to give it to the boy so that he could feel how slippery it was.

I wonder what skink this could be?

Wicked wheels Wednesday.

Many bicycles!

All colourfully decorated.
