School at kwa Mazambana July 1957.

In July 1957 it was decided that a school should be built on the shores of Kosi Bay at kwaMazambana. It was mid winter yet the weather was sublime. Never too hot and never cold.There was no soil,just sand and more sand with water we could drink just a few feet below the surface.We camped in the shade of the trees not far from the building site. By now the gang was becoming quite experienced and we knew exactly how to go about laying the concrete blocks which had already been made and were on site. We had gone up in Ella which by now practically knew the way, climbing over the Ubombo mountains and then across the Makatini flats on nothing more than tracks in the sand.
