Grade 4 News
Excerpts from the Grade 4 journal about their outing to Holy Cross College
The teacher shouted, “Feet flat! Back straight! Is that a smile I see? School is no joke!” I was scared to death. But thank goodness that was just acting.
There was a sundial - it made me think how hard it was to tell the time then.
I saw a sign that said “JMJ” which actually made me think a lot. Then I learnt it meant Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
On Tuesday, we visited Holy Cross College. We learnt many new things about the history of Gauteng. We experienced what school was like for children a long time ago. At school children were hit with canes as punishment.
There had to be a circular road at the front of the school for the horses and carriages because they could not reverse like cars.
The school has a garden dedicated to Helen Suzman, a very special woman who fought for human rights.
