Year 1 Global Citizens set their sights on Africa

03 October 2016

A few weeks ago Mrs Rand's Year 1 class invited our two South African Gap Staff, Kelebogile Sediane and Tlotlano Kgosieng to their classroom to learn a little bit more about what life is like on the African continent. Kele, who recently joined our Gap Staff this term, tells us what it was like to be interviewed by the enthusiastic Year 1 class. Well done to our junior journos!

  • Year 1 interviewing gap staff about Africa, Regents International School Pattaya

It is always a pleasure for me when someone wants to know about Africa, it just satisfies my soul. On the 22nd of September, Tlotlano and I were invited by Mrs Rand to come and answer some interesting questions about Africa. It was a great experience. Year 1 are very clever, they asked very well-thought of questions like "What food is eaten in Africa? What can we eat for snacks in Africa? Does it rain in Africa? Do we have fossils in Africa? Are there schools in Africa?"

Who would have thought that a Year 1 could ask such meaningful questions?

They even taught me a few things. For example that the horn-like objects on giraffes are called ossicones – I didn't know that, or even notice that giraffes had those!

We looked at some beautiful African hand-made pieces, and one thing that interested us all was the Maasai cloth which is worn by Tanzanian men symbolizing royalty, integrity and honour.

"Well, the interview went really well and I learnt a lot from you and the kids" Tlotlano said aftewards.

Thanks to Mrs Rand and her class for the invitation, it was so much fun, it really made a huge difference and I felt close to home. I felt honoured being an ambassador for my continent. Special thanks to Ms Vicki for the beautiful African pieces she brought from Tanzania.
