Over the past week,I have spent hours wandering around the school grounds.
Even though it is situated near a busy road in suburban Johannesburg,
it offers pupils and teachers a calm environment to work in
Perhaps our team can train on these stairs?
We might well need to use this bus to get us and our kit to the airport!
The school has a woodwork shop when the pupils make and sell a range of products.
The smell of wood and machinery took me back to my High school years in Port Elizabeth.
In fact, I believe that my Mom still has two of the items that I made in Matric (1970)
One is a pot holder and the other is a pig that she uses as a doorstop.
I don’t think that it was meant to be a pig, but it turned out that way
There is also a metal shop where items like burglar bars etc are made.
St Vincent will soon be opening a shop at the school where these items will be on sale
How many of us spent time outside the Principal’s office?
Better that trying to memorize multiplication tables in class.
Putting the stairs to good use.
Who will be climbing?
The core team consists of…
“This will be my second trip up the mountain to raise awareness and funds for a good cause
I want to see the horizon once again from the top of the highest mountain in Africa”
Food and beverage manager

“I like to do as much as possible in this life
and Kilimanjaro is an experience I am looking forward to.
To walk, unencumbered by technology,
enjoying the beauty and the scenery on the mountain”.
