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!
