Today four classes went out into the community around the school to pick up the rubbish along the roads. The other three classes cleaned up the school grounds and nearby property borderlines.
Rubbish picked up at the roadside.
Wild windy weather and water everywhere.
The entrance gateway had so much water children had to go round the office block to reach the before school care room.
Ella went around while Jordan and Tessa waded through the deep water.
Tessa struggled with her umbrella.
No use at all, wind blowing at 150 km ph and hard rain pouring down!

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.

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)
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.
Today was Wig Wednesday for Kids Cancer. The children had to wear a wig or do something with their hair and bring a coin to school for KidsCan.

Three little girls playing with
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.
