Teff - the next big super-grain

See this article about Teff - the grain that Ethiopia uses to make it's staple food, injera. Teff is naturally high in calcium, iron and protein and is gluten free. It will be interesting to see whether it's use becomes more widespread - the article suggests you can buy it in the UK, but for a considerable price per kg compared to here!

The Gowans Centre is open!

The Gowans Centre, our new high school building is officially open. We are so thankful that we have such a wonderful new building which will house almost all of the middle school and high school classes. It spans three floors, has science and computer labs as well as an outside terrace area and a new basketball court. More photos will follow once the move is complete and less people are busy around that area!
