GRADE 8 BOUDARY WALK – 24 & 25 FEBRUARY 2017

Last year we started a new tradition at the College – the Grade 8 Boundary Walk – not only will it serve as a further introduction to our environmental ethos but also a great opportunity to get learners outdoors.  We will leave after school on a Friday and walk the boundary of Raptors View, sleeping out at the southern end of the reserve (no tents).  Then on Saturday we return along the other half of the boundary.

A great learning opportunity with much to talk about,

  • Carrying capacities and veld management
  • SCS & Raptors View in the context of the K2C Biosphere Region
  • Geology (wonderful views of the escarpment)
  • Track & sign (an African Science)
