“Holiday Picnic”

ways of collecting firewood and the properties that show that wood is best for

moved on to a different section of the farm which was
a river and carried on with the rest of the activities
there . Some of the activities there were , mine field
hula hoop , treasure hunt , dancing competition ,
friendship test , story telling , etc . In the middle of
these games there was a break for lunch , with a
mouth watering dish prepared by Ms Mokwena , Ms
Robert and Mr Peter . This was maize meal (pap) , the
irresistible chakalaka and varieties of meat all broke

thank the members of staff for organizing this

Mr Madzime, Mr Mulenga, Mr Itseng, and the
rest had enjoyed and spent the day with
