Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Although he was achieving good results, he wasn't reaching his full potential because his love for learning had been destroyed & hence his grades were steadily declining.

Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Completely failed by the system, he hated school, was always tired & homework time was a major frustration for both of us. He was severely frustrated & quickly heading to become yet another ADHD statistic.

Sound & Light Experiments at Tan’ Malie se Winkel

This was an amazing experience & the kids were fascinated.
The idea was not so much teaching the kids all about science but rather creating an interest and awareness that one needn’t have a science lab to do interesting science experiments. Many experiments can be done with simple household items. One simple example was sounds created by holding various different pipes over a flame. I also purchased a CD containing various science experiments etc. for the boys to try out.
