FLOWER FESTIVAL

SEARLE MEMORIAL CHURCH GREAT BRAK RIVER The Searle memorial Church, Great Brak River, Flower Festival took place on the 8th and 9th of September. 21 stands each displaying a beautiful arrangement of flowers and plants were prepared by individuals or groups as members of the Searl Memorial Church. Each wonderful flower arrangement was based on a verse in the bible, a psalm or a hymn. Above left is the display by Elaine van der Toorn based on the hymn, “To God be the Glory” a clear message of grace. On the right are a number of displays including the communion rail display by Judy Anderson and Agnes Sterley, displays on and around the pulpit done by Joey Fourie and Veronica Anderson. The displays to the left and right of the main cross are by Alta Scott, and the globe in the centre by Ingrid Loock. All 21 arrangements were beautifully crafted personal expressions of faith.

LITTLE EINSTEIN’S

Little Einstein’s - ʼn Dag om te onthou vir oud en jonk!   Die Gr.RRR & Gr.RR klassie van Little Einsteins Educare Kleuterskool het op Lentedag saam met die Skoolhoof Isobel Vermeulen,  Juffrou Lizl van der Westhuizen en Assistent Juffrou Heike Fourie by Groenkloof Aftreeoord besoek afgelê.   Elke kleuter moes 'n bossie blomme skooltoe bring, gepluk uit hul tuin of gekoop. Kleuters was geklee in vrolike lentedagkleure en het deur Groenkloof se paadjies en gange gewikkel en al die ou mensies gegroet en blomme uitgedeel. Die inwoners was aangenaam verras en verheug oor die “klein” besoekers.   Little Einstein’s Educare Kleuterskool is een van 24 skole regoor die land, wat gekies is vir Kleuterzone KyknetNou se 2017 TV-opname. Op 29 Augustus het die TV-span die skool besoek en ook die pragtige skoolkonsert die aand opgeneem. Ons kosbare kleuters, ouers en die publiek was deel van die produksie en TV- opname. Die Skoolhoof en eienaar Isobel Vermeulen kan baie trots wees op hierdie jong skooltjie in die hartjie van Groot Brakrivier.

KRUIE KLETSIE

Deur Cecil Hough Kamille is een van die kruidsoorte met `n stukkie wetenskaplike gefundeerde geskiedenis!   Ramses II, `n Egiptiese farao wat tussen 1324 en 1258vC geleef het se maaginhoud is deur Franse wetenskaplikes ontleed. Daar is bevind dat 80% daarvan plantmateriaal was en kamille-stuifmeel was een van die elemente. Ewe menslik wonder ek, waarvoor het die heerser kamille gebruik?   Kamille is `n meerjarige kruidsoort en kan tot `n hoogte van 12cm groei.   Dit plant vegetatief voort, het fyn saamgestelde blaartjies, wit madeliefie tipe blommetjies en verkies goedgedreineerde grond. Kruiegroete, Cecile.
