Spring Intake 2015 Building Explorers

We started of the week learning brick laying, plastering and concrete laying with Sam. Which makes one appreciate the hard work that goes into building-especially during a heat wave… We also received our technology back on Monday morning during break time. Mr Randal happened to walk out of the office about five minutes after receiving our gadgets, and all he could manage was an “oh dear” as he walked away shaking his head… On Wednesday we did accounts with Mrs Fenwick. She made the concepts easy to understand, the only inhibitor to her lesson was the groups distinct lack of mathematical skills. It seemed that as the day drew on our maths got continually worse until we got about four different answers for the same sum… We were then told to pack up our tents for the weekend as there was a wedding happening, for which we were being bused off to Matopos with Seb. During our time there we summited a kopje, cycled 22 kilometers, went site seeing and in the evenings we sang along to Seb playing on his guitar. We then made our way to Bulawayo, where we stayed at Burkes Paradise, Yani found it quite entertaining that we were camping in a city… While we were in Bulawayo, we visited the Bulawayo museum and got a tour around Claudia and her father’s aquaponics scheme. I felt it was well researched and that they have a clear vision of what they would like to achieve and where they would like to take their project. It was a fascinating concept that they seemed quite excited about. In the evening we went to Bullies bar to watch the South Africa versus Wales rugby match, where Nola and I ended up playing Rummy instead… On Sunday we packed up and made our way back to Quest and had the rest of the day off after we unpacked and gave the kitchen equipment a thorough scrub. Thankfully Chum (one of the Quest chefs) was kind enough to come and cook dinner for us which took some of the pressure off kitchen duty.
