Tintswalo Atlantic is rising again! Construction work is well underway at Tintswalo Atlantic after a devastating fire destroyed the kitchen and public areas of the boutique hotel on Chapman’s Peak Drive (Cape Town), in February 2019. Fortunately, the guest rooms were left mostly unscathed and the only guest suite that was damaged in the fire, has already been completely refurbished. The re-build is on schedule and the hotel is set to re-open for business in October (2019).

Toddler development is about first friends, manners, language advancement, potty training and transitioning from a baby to a child, all important milestones for these little humans.🚸 Language plays an integral part at this age and it’s so rewarding watching your toddler’s progress in speech and language, unfold right in front of your eyes. It’s also the perfect time to create a love for reading.📖❤ We had the pleasure of going on a space rocket adventure with the space-themed addition to the hugely successful Pop-Up Peekaboo! series.

The Holy Rosary School in Johannesburg continues to amaze us! On voting day earlier this month, the school carried out a ‘pretend’ voting day for the students. They feel that the best way to learn is by doing, through fun and play. Their Grade 6 teachers came up with a brilliant initiative to add more excitement to the syllabus, covering South Africa, our wonderful democracy, voting and elections. However, instead of political parties, our teachers and girls arranged an Election for the best Party (Pyjama Party, Ice-cream Party, Dancing Party…) The room was set up like a voting station: and Grade sixes were the officials. First the girls had to produce their IDs – that they made, then they had to be checked on the voters’s roll. Next they had their fingers inked, then they went into the booths and placed their crosses. Finally they placed their ballots in the box. Mrs Yvette Bibis (Grade 6 teacher Holy Rosary School): "As part of the Grade 6 syllabus, we teach the children about how South Africa is governed and our magnificent democracy. I thought the best way for the children to learn about it - besides just getting notes and seeing videos - was to actually experience the voting process. As it is a general election this year, a perfect time to do this: the girls' parents will be voting, conversations will take place at home and they will be able to say what it means to vote and talk about their experience.” @holyrosaryjhb #absolutemama #lifestyle #magazine #vote #voting #elections #responsibility #education #southafrica #school #teach #learn #teachers #ballots #fun #excitement
