All things natural with Natural Dynamix

Nestled in in the quiet expanse of Radiokop lies Natural Dynamix, a progressive school which believes in eco-friendly ways and healthy eating.

Natural Dynamix may be a mainstream school but is non-traditional. Instead, they believe children should love school as they spend most of their childhood there. Natural Dynamix stands for experimental learning, where play and staying active is encouraged.

In such an environment, the school will be holding a Natural Market Day to promote everything natural, healthy and eco-friendly. Besides exciting stallholders, there will be many different talks and activities going on.

Gardeners can enjoy a talk on organic gardening by local author, Jane Griffiths; and outdoor enthusiasts can take part in an orienteering race. The community can also look forward to yoga sessions, a silent disco, a talk on conscious parenting and a free belly dancing class.

The organic garden on the school premises teaches children to grow their own food.

The variety of stalls is also something to look forward to as the likes of Leafy Greens Vegetarian Food, Steam Punk, RAWyal Honey, and Herb Afrique among many others will be at the market.

The children definitely won’t be feeling left out with all the fun races, story time and face painting that is planned. Natural Dynamix children will also have their own stalls made out of recycled and reusable material. The market day is on 10 June and runs from 8am to 4pm. It is sure to be a fun day out for the whole family.

Grade 8 children enjoy their school.

More details can be found on the Natural Dynamix website and Facebook page.

Individuals are advised to book in advance for specific events, such as the talk by Jane Griffiths and the orienteering race.

Entrance is R20 for adults, individuals under 16 get in for free.
