(Please let us...

Every parent knows the constant struggle of thinking of new and exciting activities to keep the kids occupied and stimulated.  Our girls love doing arts and crafts, learning new things, and keeping active, but sometimes coming up with new things for them to do is a challenge in itself!  The Internet is a great place...

When we think back to the days of our school holidays, it’s hard to recall exact details as our last one was about 20 years ago! What does however stand out, are the family traditions that were built around said holidays. We want it to be the same for our kids and so we have started our own traditions that we hope...

Sunday mornings are the best. Since I started my new role at Edgars Sandton, it’s now the 1st day of my weekend. This Sunday we spent the morning in Morning Hill.

You see I matriculated in 1998 whereas most of the 20 students I spoke to only finished school as recently as 2013!  They were only starting Grade 1 as I was wrapping up Grade 12. My talk that day covered...

Razia’s recipe for a great interview: Interviews are not what they used to be. The interviewer has to ensure you ‘tick all the boxes’ as she gets ready to present you to her client. It’s a session of experiential questioning and sometimes it gets very practical. I always aim to get an understanding of how you think...

Our youngest daughter Micah tells us why she loves Sofia the First so much. I like Sofia the First because she is so cute. I love her big eyes and her purple ball gown. There are two parts of the Sofia the First movie which are my favourite. Both of them take place at the Princess School. Amber gives Sofia the First...
