Talhado Children’s Haven graduate celebrates

Matric Dance fever came to Sea Vista last evening along with another proud moment for the teachers and staff at Talhado Children’s Haven as one of their old boys, Charl Brown, prepared to attend his Matric farewell dance on 22 June.

Charl who is set to matriculate from Humansdorp Secondary School this year, is the second son of proud parents Virginia and Charlie Brown of Sea Vista.Charl’s mother, Virginia, is the Haven’s Grade 00 Afrikaans Montessori teacher.

Friends and family gathered together to celebrate and give Charl a fabulous send-off before his father took him to collect his date for the evening, Cindy Leigh Saile.

Congratulations to Charl – everyone is very proud of you! And Congratulations to the Haven and its wonderful staff who can now boast
another matriculant amongst its old boys!

College visit Citrus Farm & Braai with Dad

Curiosity Bites At Citrus Farm

Ever wondered how your fruit gets to the shelf at Spar? Ask any St Francis College Grade 0 pupil and they’ll tell you. The class travelled to Patensie this month to visit Paksaam Nursery and Citrus Farm, where they learned about how delicious oranges, naartjies and lemons are grown and processed. Following a tour and tractor ride around the orchards, delighted pupils made a pit stop at Tolbos Country Shop and Restaurant for a little down-time and chat about everything they’d learned. Teachers Elizabeth Carpenter and Karen Parker were pleased as punch with their pupils’ fruity knowledge (and good behaviour).

Nou Gaan Ons Braai! We Love Our Dads!

Young St Francis College pupils celebrated Father’s Day this month by treating their dads to a Braai Picnic at school.

Armed with braai tongs and refreshments, the dads arrived to fanfare, with hugs and back slaps all round.

After some fun games and a braai, everyone relaxed on the grass with a picnic, where dads were handed delightful handmade gifts.

Happy Father’s Day (and month), fabulous fathers of St Francis Bay!
