School Stories: String art and Block building


Early morning. Girls started doing string art.

The same afternoon the after school children were impressed with the two girls work.

We made a whole collection.

This afternoon two boys were building their hearts out.

McLaren Epic Tour NZ: I saw five today!


What an experience! When I went home this afternoon, I had to wait for the traffic to pass before I could turn off onto State Highway 2 back to Upper Hutt.

Guess who came passing by? Yes, five of the McLaren cars. One behind the other and I could turn onto the highway and followed them. Lucky for me they had to stop at the traffic light and I could take a quick photo.

School Stories: School Gala


It was raining, the wind was blowing, the sun came out a bit then it was raining again!

This was the way the day started. The school gala started 11 o’clock. The rain came pouring down. Then the rain lifted and all the fun started.

Photos before the big event, about 10:45 am.

The children practised the whole year to do the school’s Haka.

The children had lots of fun.

Afrikaanse Tokkel:Al die veld is vrolik


 

 

Vandag het ek n behoefte in my hart gehad om : “Al die veld is vrolik” met almal te deel.

Dis n lang naweek hier. Ek wou eintlik Wellington toe gaan om die Filipynse Fees te gaan afneem. Die oggend was so heerlik dat ek daarteen besluit het en liewers sommer hier in my eie omgewing fotos geneem.

Ek het eers sommer hier op die sypaadjie die volgende blommetjies afgeneem.20161022_095607

Dis die kleinste, klein ou magrietjies. Meisies by die skool het die week stringetjies gemaak en in hul hare gesit. Daar was ook volgens my “perde blommetjies” (dis hoe my ma die blommetjies genoem het) met bytjies op.

Toe loop ek die hele dag en sing : Al die veld is vrolik want ek het uitgery na die “Twin Lakes” en die mooiste fotos daar geneem.

Ongelukkig het ek nog nie koggelmandertjies, regte krieke en sprinkane hier raakgeloop nie.

MORNING

It is still winter here in New Zealand.

One freezing morning my

neighbour had ICE FLOWERS on his car.

This is how the sky looked early that same morning!

Lucky for me, my car was under the car port.

Toeka-Tokkel no 23: Stad/Dorp

Hierdie komende week kuier ons in stede of dorpe wat jy onthou of sommer net oor wil gesels.

Ek het groot geword in en om Pretoria, daarna het ek lank in Ptogietersrus gebly en ook n tydperk in Secunda. Ek gaan nie rerig oor die Suid Afrikaanse dorpe of stede gesels nie.
Op die oomblik bly ek in Upper Hutt wat in 1966 as stad verklaar is. Hierdie jaar vier Upper Hutt hul 50 jarige bestaan as stad. Daar is sowat 39,700 inwoners(Junie 2015)
Vir my, wat gewoond is aan n stad soos Pretoria en Johannesburg is Upper Hutt maar n klein plattelandse dorpie.

Daar is n hoofstraat(Main Street) waar meeste winkeltjies is. Dan, bygesê, is baie winkels leeg. Die stadsraad beweer die stad bloei en gaan vooruit. Die huur van die winkels is egter so hoog dat die winkels nie rerig n bestaan maak nie.

Daar is drie super-markte. n Mall,wat in 2010 in werking gekom het, hou ook nie mense om  hul winkeltjies te huur nie. Daar is bv klerewinkels te kus en te keur. Die mense koop egter nie rerig in Upper Hutt nie. Hul gaan Lower Hutt  toe wat tweemaal so groot is as UH. Dis beslis n onbegonne stryd vir oorlewing in Upper Hutt.

Die dorpie self is baie mooi. Dit lê langs die Hutt rivier. Die rivier is vernoem na Sir William Hutt wat n groot rol in Engelse kolonisasie gespeel het.Die grond waarop Upper Hutt gebou is was voor 1840 in Maori besit gewees

.In 1841 land eerste Europese(Engelse) settelaars hier. Die eerste ontwikkeling was n saagmeul wat inheemse bome opgesaag het. Daarna het die stad stelselmatig gegroei en ontwikkel.

Daar was nie veel reaksie op vorige onderwerp “Straf” nie.

Dankie aan Toorts wat presies gesê het hoe dit in werklikheid is.
