This week the grade 4 #Lilyfontein learners had to create a product, plan it, design it and sell it in the form of a poster.  The imagination is priceless.  Well done grade 4's, your future is bright!

#TEDTALK Tuesday: Kate Drummond is living proof that it is never too late to follow your dreams. After 12 years as an elementary school teacher, Kate left the classroom and life, as she knew it, behind. She sold all her belongings and possessions, packed up her dog and moved to Toronto to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an actress. In this inspirational talk, Kate shares her journey and the many lessons she has learned as a result of taking her biggest leap of faith. Little did she know that making this change in her life would actually change her life. And There I Was: A Tale About Chasing Dreams & Beginning Again
