Nelson Mandela

P1.Nelson Mandela was an South African president who fought for the blacks.  He wanted all the blacks to be treated equally with the same rights and the same respect. He wanted them to get along without any racism and protesting.

P2. Rolihlahla Mandela was born on july 18, 1918 in a small village Mvezo where he was brought up with his dad until he past away (of tuberculosis) when Mandela was nine years of age. From there he was raised by Jongintaba, until he escaped from an arranged marriage he wanted no part of. Mandela went to Clarkebury boarding to receive his junior certificate, where he got the name Nelson from his teacher, then from there he went to Healdtown, a Wesleyan secondary school of some repute.

P3. August 5 1962 Nelson Mandela was arrested for fleeing the country without a passport, he was then sentenced to 5 years in prison on the 7th of november. Mandela was then transported to 3 different prison, Robben island, Pretoria Local Prison, then released from Victor Verster Prison.

P4. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a south african who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. Nelson Mandela changed the world for most south africans he changed it so they don't get teased for their colour that they can own their own businesses and that all of them could get along and be treated fairly with the same respect.

Camp Keswick

Camp Kezwick has been an amazing experience for me throughout the past 4 days in Rotorua. Rotovegas had many fun activities and tourist attractions, this beautiful place had a lot of fresh water lakes to hot mud pools to a very stinky egg smell. We did a lot of walking in bush walks and forest.

Going camp at Rotorua was a fun experience. Because we got to watch a show and do many exciting stuff. Most of the activities we did we had to walk but that was still fun because we saw different view. Probably the most hilarious was the sheep show. It was this man talking and making these funny jokes. He was a funny man. But the best that I would have to say is the luge ride. It was the best of all.
