A Day in the Life


Here we are queuing to get onto our school buses that take us home. At last we can talk non-stop to our friends!

Computer ClubComputer Club

Here are two members of our computer club presenting a computer that they have rebuilt to the teachers of Thembalitsha Primary School. This school is one of our 'feeder' schools.

Thembalitshal Primary School only has two computers, both of which members of the Club rebuilt for them.



Here is a typical shack from the informal settlement that surrounds our school.

Most of us live in wooden houses like this, but Knysna Municipality is building many new houses from bricks. We hope all our learners have a brick house to live in one day.



The school Drama Group went to the Grahamstown Arts Festival this year. It's the biggest national arts festival in South Africa. Here is one of our group with two of the 'statues' they especially liked.

Drama Group

Drama #1

Here is the Drama Group presenting their play about HIV/AIDS.

We are very proud of them.

Court Interpreter

Drama #2

Here is the boy who played the court interpreter in the play. His role was to make sure no-one enters the Court House that shouldn't be there.

He is very strict.
