Hobbiton on Hogsback School Camp

My class and I all went up to Hogsback to have school camp. We climbed into the bus dreading the long trip all the way from East London to Hogsback. When we arrived in Hogsback we went straight to Hobbiton where we stayed for the duration of the week. Hobbiton is very nice and you can see Kettlespout from it. Kettlespout is a waterfall that originates from a spring, Kettlespout also runs off the edge of one of the cliffs or mountains in the area.  Day one we arrived and went to our dorms where we would be staying, we unpacked our bags and got settled in. Soon after we were called to the dedicated lining up or roll call area. We set off for the middle ropes course, this is a … Read entire article »

Lilyfontein Grade 8 Orientation Camp

My class and I all arrived in the morning on Friday and did normal schoolwork until one o’clock in the afternoon; when school ended. We had half an hour to get changed into casual clothes or “civies” as some may call it. After getting changed my class was told to meet outside of the classroom. We then received lunch from the teacher which was salad rolls. After eating that we were told that for the rest of the orientation camp we were to speak in an Indian accent. We then lined up outside the classroom in attention. This is where we are not allowed to move, speak or laugh, and if we wanted to ask a question it of course had to be in the Indian accent. We then did star jumps until … Read entire article »

My last seven days including Christmas

Friday: On Friday the twenty third my mom, Tony, my brother and I went to see the movie Tintin in 3D. My mom only wanted to see the movie because it was in 3D and my brother and I were forced to come along. We got our popcorn and slush puppy or coke and went in. I liked the 3D part of the movie but did not like the movie itself. Saturday: Christmas Eve was spent with my mom. We get presents from my mom and her side of the family on Christmas Eve because on Christmas day we go to my dad’s house. From my mom and her side of the family I got deodorant, lip ice, a chocolate I had never seen before, two computer games (not as good as Skyrim) … Read entire article »

My brother’s 14th birthday party

We woke up at my dad’s house in the morning. We stayed there for a while and played Skyrim till my brother wanted to go and buy something at the shop. We set out to Game and Sportsman’s warehouse where he found nothing he wanted. He is not a true gamer you see he loves to read and read and keep reading books. When he is not playing Skyrim (when I am) he reads. He wanted to go to the shop called Exclusive books. When we arrived he went straight towards the Terry Pratchett books and got two of them. He didn’t even use his birthday money he used his Christmas money. We left the shops and went to my mom’s house where the family from my mom’s side would be … Read entire article »

My friends Birthday Party

Only a few people in my class went to school because it was the last week of school. In the last week of school we do no school work or anything like that. We just sit around and do nothing, that’s why only a few people come. Today only two people came, me and someone else. After school I want to my cousins’ house where my mom fetches me from. When she arrived she took me straight to the venue of the party. When we arrived at the gate my friend was waiting there for us and all the other people who were coming. As we got to the gate he pressed the button to open it and in we came. We came through the gate and went down the long … Read entire article »
