Myths and Legends
Khayelitsha Craft Market
|Let us introduce ourselves to you!
We are Gemma and Keri-Lee; we are both 12 years old and are pupils
at a girls’ school in Cape Town, South Africa.
We are working with Daniswa Lubengu of Uxolo School in Khayelitsha
||My name is Gemma. I go to Greenfield Girls
Primary School in Kenilworth, Cape Town. I am in Grade 7. At school we
have about 40 computers at school, and it has been so much more convenient
than traveling around. I have really enjoyed participating in this
project, and I have learnt about things that I did not know.
||My name is Keri-Lee. I go to Greenfield Girls Primary
School in Kenilworth, Cape Town. I am in Grade 7.
I have learned to communicate better with people. It was fun doing the
Think Quest project but also a lot of hard work. I am proud with what we
have done. I found it easy to work with my partners Gemma and Daniswa.
Thank-you to Mrs Barrett our coach for helping us and to Mrs Veitch.
||My name is Daniswa and I go to Uxolo High school. I live with my mother and my sisters.
I attend School at Uxolo High and I am doing Grade 9.
I am busy learning about TOURISM to MRS. Barrett who is teaching me a Computer
and is my coach. I also do a research about Townships . How did the Black people live in the Townships and
how did they do things and I also searching about the traditional things that were happening in the olden days and the other things that were doing by the Black people.
That is what I am doing in the tourism . I have had to visit the centres in the township to talk to people to find out about what Americans and others can see.
I meet MRS Barrett at the SAIRR on Fridays to discuss my work and to use their computer. I don't have a telephone at home. Mrs Barrett will take the disc to my team members, Kerri- Lee and Gemma. They are at her school.
I have learn a lot in this project like how to talk to people. I have had to learn to catch a train by myself and get lost looking for places. I have learnt taxis are better than trains. And I improve my English a lot.
