Blur


No, not the band, but rather, using the focus, or lack of focus for effect. 

Four great photos – 1) Colouring pencils; 2) Those who know JZ, will know that he is not afraid of a camera and showing all and any of his moves.  Here is one of ba-zillion I have of him posing for my camera, or any camera matter of fact; 3) This little fella was laying easy on a beach on Stromboli, Italy.  Pity he was dead; 4) A great photo of Cuba at Jav’s and Jordan’s goodbye party.  Appreciate the blur!

    I appreciate the comments Lara. You are very capable and can be whatever you want to be … you could even work in McDonald’s if you try hard enough LOL. Seriously, you are going to get heaps of teachers in secondary school that you will not like, and they will not be as cool as me! But then again, who is. LOL.

  • Nelson McGrath

    no, not forever!!!

  • Nelson McGrath

    It will toughen you up 🙂

  • Hamda

    But I dont understand maths but you explain it more better! 🙂

  • 5G. Nicole :)

    No cool teacher would leave their pupils in England and make their levels drop 😦 When are you going to come back? Because since you are doing a volunteer job you won’t earn money= Not so much time in Botswana. How about come back when we are in Year 6? Or if you are going to come back to England around 2 to 10 years, then work in Hendon School. Because we won’t be in this school in that time. And plus you probably get more cash in Hendon. 🙂 But its better to come back this year or next year xD

    • Nelson McGrath

      Come on Nicole, its not that bad. You are turning out to be as dramatic as Lara!!! Most likely, I will not be returning in Sept to be your Yr 6 teacher, we are still getting our visas here so we can stay. Plus we have friends and family coming until the end of Sept and maybe next year. You’ll have to complain to me online rather than in person!

  • Sevini

    Hi Mr McGrath. How are you? Hows it going in Botswana? Are you going to come back to London to teach us again? You having fun? WE ARE NOT HAVING FUN! BUT I BET YOU ARE!!!

  • Sevini

    So Bob the Chicken is alright too?

  • Sevini

    Is Botswana nice? And please be our Year 6 teacher!!

    • Nelson McGrath

      Hey Sevini, hope you are well. Botswana is very nice. The people are friendly and life is relaxed, but we are filling it with so much that is also very busy. My brother came over to visit us and we took him to Victoria Falls, Zambezi River and Chobe National Park. Do an google image search to see what they look like.

  • 5G. Nicole :)

    Yh! Our levels will rise until we are doing Year 10 work like Algebra or something if you come back to us and be our Year 6 teacher 😉

    • Nelson McGrath

      Hi Katie. I hope you are still trying very hard at school! Congratulations on turning older; are you 10 or 11? I have a toyota hilux surf 4wd for a car, and we have just got a one bedroom house in the bush, on a ostrich farm!!! We move in next week. Very exciting.

  • Melanie

    Hi Mr McGrath,How are you? How is Botswana.

  • Melanie

    Hi Mr Nippy*,How are you? How is Botswana?*

    • Nelson McGrath

      Bon jour Fred. I am well. We move into our house in the bush in a few days time. It’ll be good to not sleep in a tent anymore. Botswana is excellent! But I am very busy here helping people learn. And I am getting a tan, especially being out in the African sun a lot.

  • Lara

    You can’t hide in Botswana forever (lol). You MUST come back Mrs Haringman explains too much and I’m so scarede to ask her questions other wise she will give me the lllllloooooonnnnnngggggggeeeeessssttttttttt explanation lol

  • Lara

    It won’t make me strong as i am strong already it will only make me border without you here

  • 5G. Nicole :)

    We’re nearly Year 6s now, just around 2 more weeks (top of the school!) 🙂 We don’t know who is going to be our Year 6 teacher though. The Year 6s now, had done their show today: Robin Hood.

    Tomorrow we’re doing a Science test, of all the Science we did to Year 3 – Year 6. We have to revise with books and stuff. So yeah, we’re having LOTS of pressure. Especially with the new rules, I don’t think we can really stick to them really, because I suppose it goes in one ear and out the other. We’re having really complicated seating too, Reading Group(for Guided Reading), Writing Group/Literacy Group, Maths group, Topic Seats(we used to have ‘normal seats’ but then that was cancelled and normal seats were topic seats). It was a WHOLE lot of simpler before. And it is really tiring with the sun and the heat (it’s so hard to concentrate on the work!!!), but I suppose Botswana is not much more pleasant.

  • katie.c

    today we will be having mrs moses and sam

  • Melanie

    When are you coming back??????

    • Nelson McGrath

      Hey Fred… interesting question … but I don’t know the answer. We are busy here, but having lots of fun. I hope school is going well and that you have Mrs Moses as a teacher. You’ll like her. Tell her Mr McGrath says hello.

      • Nicole

        You’re having fun without US?!? 😥

        Yeah, it’s really hard in Year 6…

      • Nelson McGrath

        Nicole, get a tissue for your issue. You’ll be fine. School just gets harder and harder, wait until you get into university. Do you know which secondary school you are going to? But I am having fun, LOTS of it. But then again, I’m old and allowed to do this stuff. One day you will do cool stuff too.

  • Hamda

    Hello How Is Botswana Going?

    • Nelson McGrath

      Botswana is going very well. I am very busy, but loving the experience. My wife and I are helping many of the local people to learn, plus we are learning a lot from them. We see many animals, but there are not many near our house because we are closer to town. I need to put some of my pictures up, I have taken thousands of them. It is very hot here, hotter than English summers, and soon they say there will be plenty of rain. I am well, getting tanned (not that I am trying to, just out in the sun a lot) and meeting lots of nice people. My setswana (the language they speak) is getting better too. I still think heaps about my old class, I hope you are all behaving for Mrs Moses!!!! Say a big HELLO to the class from me.

      • Nicole

        We all applied for our secondary schools. Most of the class is going to Mill Hill… And some is going to Hendon. Then some is going to Qe Girls/Boys. Some is going to Henrietta Girls School. Going to Hendon 🙂 And its probably going to be okay.

  • Lara

    Mr McGrath Mrs Moses is cool and funny, but not as funny as you:(. How is the class in botswana?, Still cracking your jokes are ya?. You are staying in botswana longer than I expected. Is your house made out of feces? (at least I think thats how you spell it). Say hi to your ‘New’ class for me. How are you?, Good I hope so, if their annoying you tell me so I can fly to botswana and knock ’em out!. Are they calm and the complete opposite of us?. Please reply soon Mr M and COME BACK SOOOON!!!!!

    • Nelson McGrath

      My house is made of bricks, not anything else. But your comment made me laugh. Oh, and no one is as annoying as you – that is a compliment. Keep smiling and say hi to Mrs Moses for me.

      • Lara

        There is this new yr6 teacher called Mr Crichlow and he calls me and djennie ‘the partners in crime’ but im much more annoying and talkative. Mr C gets seriously annoyed by me but I don’t mind.

  • Lara

    Stop having so much fun and go on your blog and ANSWER US!!!!!!!!!!

    • Nelson McGrath

      I’ve been on my blog. I am sorry, I will not be back soon. We are staying for at least another year. But, you will do a brilliant job at working hard at school, you’ll complain, you’ll stamp you feet and hold your breath – but you will do well! So there…

      • Lara

        I do not stamp my feet, do i?. I sure hope not but you are forgiven for not going on ur blog but it don’t matter right now……..ANOTHER YEAR?!!!. How can you stay another year?,that shows how much you like us(!).Just 1 more question before I go………..is the school made of feces?(if thats how you spell it). Anyway peace :,(

  • Nicole

    Actually Yr 6 has been quite busy recently, as we’re revising for the SATs and been offered a place at secondary schools. I think we’ll also be having a Yr 6 leaving show in June. See- notice the respectable generosity in writing a message at such a busy time.
