Today was Ancestor’s Day at Chaparral School and it included a short concert and a gathering at the classroom for parents, and family memebers (including grandparents and other relatives).  Kate shared a story about her Granny Moira with a small group of students and their family members and then Nicki prepared a classic South African desert (Milk Tart) to share with the class members and their parents.  In the gallery images below you will also see a classic British treat — Bangers and Mash, among other foods brought for the lunch.  Kate has been working on this project since the beginning of the second semester in school and helped push the decision to head to South Africa in April to visit the South Africans.
