“Make Mercy House Beautiful” Day!

Saturday is usually a day for extra lessons, but not the 8th September. This was set aside to be “Make Mercy House Beautiful” day. The lawn was almost totally depleted due to the bitterly cold winter and lack of rain. So, we ordered slabs of grass (at considerable cost!) and replaced our whole lawn. Much picking and digging and hard work. It looks good now, (see photo) so our hard work was worthwhile. Innocentia, our Afrikaans and Zulu teacher also took the day off from teaching and got stuck into the kitchen, with the help of some of our boys and Ma B. See the action in the photo below.
