There are very few things that separate the “ins” from the “outs”. The “ins” are those who inherit popularity and those that are just social butterflies. The “outs” are those who walk in the shadows and imagine what it’s like to be on the inside, even just for a day. It’s not that difficult to be one of the “populars” but it comes at a cost. Almost anyone can do it if they are willing to be a clone of someone on the inside. Most of the time it’s as easy as rocking up at the hottest party, with free drinks for everyone, and you’re in. A couple of months later you’re no longer the sweet, pretty girl at a couple of parties, you’re the hearted girl — she even did Moo Poo with us! As we sat over a packet of marshmallows, I became nosy, but she answered gracefully — like a true European...

Khutso Matlou Hoërskool Merensky

Made in Merensky “I didn’t start it, it wasn’t my fault and if this were America, I would sue.” This is how the Californian rebel, Poppy, defends herself when she is accused of setting her British boarding school on fire in the hilarious comedy Wild Child. After watching Wild Child, I developed an intense desire to become an exchange student — yearned for the adventure of being the new guy in a new country with a new language. I started working towards my goal and in that time, unbeknown to me, Tuuli Valkama was chosen to visit South Africa for six weeks. She spent three of them at Merensky and we got to know her as a free-spirited and open-

From the outside looking ‘in’


K: How did you react when you heard that Rotary was sending you to SA? T: The first reaction was: “There’s snakes! I Googled South African snakes that night and was horrified, but now I know that they hibernate in winter, so I’m okay. K: The mosquitos in summer are worse. What was your first impression of South Africans? How has that perception changed? T: When my host family came to fetch me at the airport, I noticed that they were friendly and polite. That first impression hasn’t changed. K: How much did you know about our country before you came? Pray tell. T: I knew about apartheid and crime, but I also knew about the cultural and wildlife diversity. K: What would you say is the biggest difference between South African teens and Finnish teens? T: Hmmm...Well, teenagers in Finland don’t really go to church — it’s an old people thing. Here youngsters are more religious and aren’t afraid to show it. I like that! K: Hallelujah! The five Afrikaans words that you hear the most?

life of the party at every single get together. This is what we see in almost every single movie. The ugly duckling turns into the socialite and gets the guy. THE END. They don’t often show us what happens after the champagne showers and hangovers. We don’t see the part where the pretty girl’s life starts to revolve around the parties. They never tell us about when she becomes addicted to the feeling of being loved by everyone and would do everything to keep it. Before she knows it, she’s the poster girl for drugs and arrives drunk and passes out before the party has even started. Suddenly she’s a nobody. The friends are gone and no one sees her prettiness anymore... It’s not the perfect movie ending. It’s real life. You T: Mooi — it means Hi in Finnish. Lekker? Baie. Ek! Dankie — you say that a lot; Finnish people should give thanks more often. K: What did you enjoy the most during your visit. And why? T: On my first day we did the canopy tours here in Tzaneen. I’m afraid of heights, but somehow, I had the courage to do it and I’m very happy about that! On holiday (near Mosselbaai) with my host family, we walked on the beach and saw two seals. That was supercool. The sunset. We went to the Kruger once and I loved it! It was a dream come true. We came close to two leopards and saw two impalas that the leopards had dragged into the trees. K: Who is the most interesting person you’ve met in SA? T: A security guard from a local grocery store. He guaranteed me that SA has good security guards and that he’d take care of me. I smiled for the rest of the day... K: Which South African delicacy could you eat once a day for the rest of your life? T: Biltong and koeksisters. And fresh fruit — they aren’t always available in Finland. K: Name one Finnish activity that every African múst experience. T: Ice hole swimming! You make a hole in the ice and go in. Rolling in the snow with a friend — someone who’ll scream with you and complain about the cold, but still make you do it again. K: Brrrr! What have you discovered

Makoma Maponya Ben Voster High School can’t live a fast and crazy life and expect to have a bright future, because you’ll change before you get there. Don’t let society fool you; know who you are right now and what you stand for. There is a time and place for everything and the aim is not to lose yourself along the way. Why would you want to fit in when you were born to stand out? about yourself during your visit? T: I’ve learnt to be more open to new things: I overcame my fear of height, tasted biltong — it sounded gross — and did Moo Poo! K: The most important colour in the world... T: Red for love. K:Write I love Merensky in Finnish, please. T: Minä rakastan Merenskyä! K: The best thing about Tzaneen? T: The security guards — I’m feeling very safe. The Finnish beauty flew back home recently. During her stay, she was hosted by Tzaneen’s renowned chief librarian Christine Nel. Nel’s daughter, Katrien, will be hosted by Tuuli’s family (in Finland) during the December holidays. Merry Christmas, Katrien!

TEN Small things you can do to help the environment: • Turn off all the lights when you leave a room. • Pick up litter that you see in your neighborhood. • Ride your bike or walk, whenever you can, rather than go in a car. • Turn off the water while you brush your teeth. • Use both sides of a piece of paper when drawing or writing (you could also use scrap paper). • Recycle: Paper, plastic, glass, cans and other metals. You could also create a compost heap in your garden. • Repair, re-use or repurpose things that you have already, rather than just replacing them and creating more waste. • Create a wildlife habitat by building a birdhouse for your garden. • Unplug! Any electronic gadget you can turn on with a remote (TV, DVD player, Nintendo, Xbox) uses power even when it is “off.” Appliances with a digital clock (like a coffee maker) or a power adapter (like a laptop computer) also suck power like a sneaky vampire. • Plant a tree!

Die hoofkarakters het die gehoor op ’n reis van die sestiger-

jare tot die hede geneem. Musiek van vyftig jaar gelede soos vertolk deur die Beatles, Elvis, Queen, Elton John, Tina Turner, Dolly Parton, U2, Mango Groove, Elvis Blue, Miranda Lambert en vele meer is gebruik. Die program het bestaan uit sangsolo’s, instrumente soos kitare en tromme is ingespan en groepdanse en duette is aangebied.

Thirty seven students and three teachers left for Europe and Italy during the winter school holidays. They landed in Holland the day after their departure from Oliver Thambo and they met their guide (Sue) in Amsterdam. The sightseeing started with a barge tour of the city, as well as a bicycle tour through the streets. Visiting Madame Tussard’s seemed tame after the cycling through the city! The next day they visited Bruges, a medieval city in Belgium and then continued on to Paris, where they stayed over in the Science Park, on the outskirts of Paris. The day in Parcovered the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and Montmarte. The next day spent at Euro Disney was

a treat but the train journey that night to Venice was not. Venice was very humid and the delegates just couldn’t drink enough water and vastly enriched the ‘gelato’ industry too! They saw the Doge’s Palace and marvelled at the Venetian Republic’s sense of democracy as well as its rich history. Sunday dawned and the programme that day was a wonderful tour of the islands. Murrano with its glass, Burrano with its old world charm and street market and Torcelli with its magnificent Romanesque Basilica was unforgettable. Early the next day they left for Firenze (Florence.) The old city is unashamedly home to the De Medici and magnificent

Janco Coetzee van die Laerskool Duiwelskloof het plek gekry in die Lima-span (landloop) wat aan die SA kampioenskappe gaan deelneem.

Dr Annecke se landloopatlete Die Laerskool Dr Annecke se o.7-landloopatlete het Saterdag die spanbeker by die Innie Mandjiefees se byeenkoms gewen. Chris Snyman, Luan Verster en Gideon Goosen het onderskeidelik sesde, sewende en elfde geëindig.

Atlete van die Laerskool Tzaneen het aan die Limpopolandloopkampioenskappe by die Hoërskool Merensky deelgeneem. Maynard Kleynhans, Christelle Coetzer en Lara Schutte het medaljes vir hul prestasies ontvang.

sculpture. One could only stare open-mouthed at the beautifully preserved statues of Lorenzo de Medici as Hercules lining the piazza. It was one of the tour’s highlights. The next day they saw the leaning tower of Pisa and Lucca, another unchanged medieval town, where the pace, for once, was slow. All too soon they had to leave for Rome, where the day was spent visiting the Vatican, the Forum and the Colosseum. On the final day they visited the Catacombs, and then, it was time to come back home. “It was a wonderful learning experience. One cannot but be impressed with Europe, but it was even better to realise that there is ‘no place like home’,” said the group leader.
