Handa's Suprise

We read the story about Handa, a little girl who lived in a village in Africa. One day Handa went to visit her friend Akeyo, who lived in the next village. Handa filled her basket with seven different fruits as a surprise for her friend. As Handa walked along the dusty road she didn't notice when the monkey took the banana, the ostrich took the guava, the zebra took the orange , the elephant took the mango, the giraffe took the pineapple, the antelope took the avocado pear and the parrot took the passion fruit. Handa was nearly at Akeyo's house when she saw Akeyo's naughty goat tied to a stake. The goat pulled and pulled until the rope snapped and he crashed into a tree laden with tangerines. The tangerines fell into Handa's empty basket. When Handa saw her friend , Akeyo smiled and said, " Thank you Handa, you have brought tangerines and they are my favourite fruit." "Tangerines," said Handa, "that is a surprise!"

The Grade 0 girls present their version of
 "Handa's Surprise."

100 Days of School

Today we celebrated 100 Days of Grade 0. Our special Matric girls came to help us bake 100 cup cakes. They then took us to their Matric lawn and presented us with a beautiful flower and a certificate to say we have completed 100 days at St Marys. It was a fun day but with so many learning opportunities. Grade 0 is the place to be!!
