    Radical Learning goes camping

    March 27th, 2011

    This coming weekend (1 to 3 April) all the Radical Learning staff and their families will be heading up into the Cederberg mountains for a weekend of rest and relaxation.  Beaverlac campsite is exquisitely beautiful, with the Ratel and Olifants rivers cutting through stunning rock formations, creating deep pools and waterfalls.  

    We’ll pitch our tents amongst the trees and enjoy braai-ing and chatting late into the night, looking up at the stars that are so much brighter and closer here!  During the day we’ll walk and swim and snooze and eat ice creams from the excellent farm shop.Click here to find out more information about  Beaverlac.   

    For all those joining us, click here for directions.

    We will meet you up there on Friday evening, with fires and food supplied.  Please bring your own breakfasts and lunches.  We’re thinking of doing potjies on Saturday evening… if we have enough pots between us.  So bring what you can and we will supply the evening meal.  If you are one of those super-duper potjie people, then please make yourself known, and send a shopping list for groceries!

    Don’t forget your swimming costumes and walking shoes… or alternatively your comfy armchair and a good book.

    This weekend I discovered Smilebox!  While our children danced the night away at their matric dance, we parents (excitedly? nervously?) sat in front of our computers checking Facebook for regular uploads of photos.  In between Facebook updates (Teenagers don’t use Twitter!) I found a wonderful online photograph album, complete with turning pages and your choice of background music.  You can also create scrapbooks, recipe books, calendars, slideshows etc.  Have a look at this one I made at 2am… it was very quick and easy.

    With plenty of year-end events coming up at school, why not put all your school photos into Smilebox and create a super-professional presentation for parents and children!
