First of all, I would like to thank the almighty god for this beautiful, happy and blessed day. The Southern Campus bus picks us up every morning and takes us back at the end of each day. We, the J.A. Nel Family, were welcomed with open hands by everybody. My birthday was on the 21st of August, the first day of the UNICAMP when we really go to know each other.
We started our days with activities. After the activities, we went to class where we were divided into our four groups for the health workshops. We also ended our days with another activity session which was a good way of exercising and keeping our bodies fit.
We ate healthy food to keep our bodies healthy and the food was made with love and care, that’s what made it so delicious. We have two breaks in the day. The first one is before lunch where we drink water or a hot drink. The second break is after lunch where we either eat fruits or have another hot drink.
On Wednesday, we moved into our three different streams, namely; Journalism and Media (my favourite), Computer Science and Business and Enterprise!
The students of Cardiff University are just the best students I have ever met. They are friendly, respectful, happy and helping. They build up the confidence and self-esteem of each individual. I learnt all of their names by the end of day three.
On Friday, Mr Paul joined us as the photographer. They taught us new songs and many new games. Everyday is a new day and although new games are taught but the behaviour of the Cardiff students remains the same. I did not think they would be so nice to us. Cardiff University has some very hard working, brave and strong students. Some Cardiff students are quick learners and they shared with us their backgrounds and testimonials. When we ate together, I felt as if I was eating with my family.
The learners of J.A. Nel, the students of Southern campus, we combined together and enjoyed ourselves as one big family.
