On 8 October El-Shalem “welcomed some animals to school”.
The Dove-, Eagle- and Ladybird-classes visited the Pretoria Zoo.
A girl in the Ladybird class welcomed Mr. Tiger during our morning-ring-time song; “Tiger came to school today, welcome Ti-ger”.
All behaved well: the children and the animals. The sizes of Mr. Giraffe and Mr. Elephant and the true colours of misses flamingo and “pea-cup” (peacock) became a reality for everyone.
On our way back, the kids struggled to stay awake but exhaustedly gave in to a well-deserved nap. Maybe Mr. tiger also needed a nap. The staff could definitely do with one!
“Babaai Mr. Tiger”, we will see you again.
