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.

COIN Tour at SA Mint

2013_0530_1121342013_0530_095516Today we joined a group of homeschoolers for a COIN WALK Tour at the South African Mint Company in Pretoria.  Google maps:; Old Johannesburg Road; Gateway; Centurion; South Africa; GPS Co-ordinates: -25.915052 28.156929

Here we saw a brief overview video of the history of the company and how coins are made. This was followed by a tour of Burgundy’s coin world, followed by lunch & some socialization in the coffee shop. Of course the best part was having dad join us for this trip.

  • Presentation and Welcome

  • An informative video on the production of coins.

  • A personalised tour in the South African Mint's coin museum
