Today we are going to a place called The House of Laughter
South Africa, here we come!
A meeting and lunch in Irene Village Mall before we had our last day at Cornwall Hill College.
We met Sally (principal at the school in Pretoria), the director and some teachers from this school and talked about also having a future cooperation together with their school and our schools here in Sweden.
Back at Cornwall Hill we had a braai before we must leave for the airport. There were lots of tears and promises to stay in touch in the future….. We have had a really nice and interesting time here in South Africa together with students, teachers and host families and we look forward to continue our work together .
Paul, one of the teachers at Cornwall Hill, had rugby training with some of the boys…
This has been a time we never will forget! Thanks to all of you!!!
First National Bank Stadium or simply FNB Stadium, also known as Soccer City and The Calabash.
This was the place for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, which was played by the Netherlands and Spain. It was also the site of Nelson Mandela’s first speech in Johannesburg after his release from prison in 1990, and served as the place for a memorial service to him on 10 December 2013.
The Pilanesberg National Park/Pilanesberg Game Reserve is located west of Pretoria.
In the park there are many of the animal species native to southern Africa including the Big Five, the five most dangerous game animals in Africa ( lions, elephants, black & white rhinoceros, African buffaloes, leopards). This time we didn´t see the lion and the leopard but we saw elephants, the buffalo, rhinos, antelopes zebras, gnus, hyenas, giraffes, monkeys, hippos and crocodiles.
Before we headed back to Pretoria we went to Sun City, a place for entertainment and nice swimming.
Hej, Felicia här. Nu har jag varit i kruger national park! Jag har kampat där i två dagar. Det var en väldigt rolig upplevelse.
Det hände så många saker där. En apa stal vår frukost, jag fick se en giraff i verkliga livet för första gången. Men jag skulle nog säja att det bästa var när ca25 elefanter och zebror gick över vägen när vi var ute på safari. Det var en av dom vackraste sakerna jag någonsin sätt. På kvällen grillade vi och några meter bort på andra sidan stängslet skrattade en hyjena.
Nu är jag väldigt trött och ska gå och se på tv.
Our students went away over the weekend together with their families to different places and I hope they will have great fun.
We teachers visited another school in the middle of Pretoria. This was a private school with about 1300 students and Sally, one of the principals, showed us around and told us about her and the teachers work there, which was very interesting.
In the afternoon we set off for a night away at Raasblaar Lodge. Here we stayed in tents hidden in the bushveld trees. We went for a ride in a jeep and saw some giraffes, ostriches, two buffaloes and some antelopes.
Later in the evening we had an open fire and a South African Braai.
Look who we met at our morning walk…..
