Lot of fun lot of wine what else? The Chocolate Block 2018 at Boekenhoutskloof Franschhoek.

Come and taste The Chocolate Block 2018

The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it’s even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

SmartStarters

SmartStarters

SmartStarters
are women and men who are implementing the SmartStart programme in communities throughout the country.
Also known as franchisees, these women and men receive the SmartStart training and quality approval before starting their early learning micro enterprises in their communities.
SmartStarters are giving children the power to succeed by providing access to affordable quality early learning.

Recognising the importance of the first six years in a child’s life and the huge gaps in provision, we provide a pragmatic, affordable solution to rapidly expand access to quality early learning. Our franchised programme is delivered through playgroups, day mothers and Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres to improve children’s readiness for learning, school performance and overall life success.

SmartStart was established in May 2015 to create universal access to early learning for three and four-year old’s. Since then, we’ve been providing an effective and affordable solution that enables unemployed women and men to run their own SmartStart programmes, and that empowers parents and communities to seek out and support this quality programme.

Boishaai Primary 💪

Boishaai 48 Gimnasium 0

During the first week of August 2019, the picturesque Boland town, Paarl, is transformed by colourfully decorated trees in the main road, banners of either shades of blue and white, green, yellow and maroon, or a light green.

This, together with thousands of supporters, old boys and girls from around the globe, who flock to Paarl, is a sign that it’s time for the annual Inter Schools in Paarl.

The biggest local derby of them all – the Paarl interschools between Gimnasium and Boys’ High – takes place on Saturday.

There have been years when this traditional end-of-season encounter has determined who the top school in the country is.

Franschhoek Literature Festival 2019
Porcupine Ridge from Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek is proud to sponsor the Franschhoek Literary Festival.

Porcupine Ridge wines were launched in 1996 and have grown to be one of the most recognised wine brands in South Africa. Being located in the Franschhoek valley, Porcupine Ridge has always taken a keen interest in the development of the town, and so it made perfect sense to support the Franschhoek Literary Festival when the opportunity arose.

The Franschhoek Literary Festival (FLF) has gained a worldwide reputation as a respected celebration of books and writers, with a focus on promoting South African writing and reading, while exposing book lovers to some of their favourite international authors.
