We had such fun creating props for our photoshoots and video clips and “bunting” to use as decorations for bedrooms, parties etc. It was SUCH a FUN day! We were all exhausted by the end of[Read More…]

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…

We’ve had some scary, stormy weather recently and I am so grateful that we all came back to school, safe and sound. I loved hearing the rolls of thunder and watching the lightening light up the sky.

It has been over a week since Justin Bieber came to Cape Town to cause some chaos among the besotted girls, and I still had a grade 1 learner screech with excitement when she found a picture of him in a magazine! I’m very impressed at how many parents braved the cold, and noise, to take their little darlings to[Read More…]

This meant that the books could not be taken off each learner’s name and we had to keep a written record of which books our learners were taking out. It was very time consuming and I ended up with a[Read More…]
