Happy summer


Smile, relax, forbide, do sport, go running, go on excursions,  try to say what you feel, go for a walk, draw and paint, smile at your parents, read a book, sing in the shower, keep your good memories, take some photos, listen to your friends, show your happiness, write your feelings, listen to the nature and respect the environment, help people, do what you have promised, let someone help you, look at flowers, help to your friends, turn the TV off and chat with your relatives, listen to your favourite music, learn something you have always wanted to do, phone your friends, close your eyes and imagine the waves on the sea, make someone feel important, make a list of things you are good at, go to the library and listen to the silence, say to your friends you love them, look at the stars, think about what you have, breathe, finish projects, don't worry if you have some mistakes, make friends, grow and be responsible and enjoy your summer.

Let me say thank you for your continued support this year.  
It has been another great year for all of us and I'm already excited about what next year holds.

I hope you have a very happy and relaxing summer break. See you in September!

Madiba's Day

Today is International Mandela's Day. 
This year will mark the first time the day has been celebrated without Madiba, and the fifth year since the UN declared July 18 – the birthday of the anti-apartheid revolutionary – the international day aimed at "bringing people together to fight poverty and promote peace and reconciliation."
But, why is Nelson Mandela so important?
Because  he went to prison for 27 years and he stood up  just for what he believed in. He believed that black people should have as many rights as white people. Along that time he had been offered to get out of prison but only if he gave up fighting for what he believed in but he refused!

Riddle 7

It's something that you chew. 
That's my first clue. 
 It's usually mint that's my second hint. 
 If you chew till noon,
 you'll get a balloon.
