Outdoor adventure

The quality of our environment is part of what makes our schools so special and we pride ourselves on ensuring that all of our learners experience it fully through weekly bush lore lessons, field trips and structured outdoor activities.

Enabling our learners to enjoy the outdoors (and its promise of adventure) is part of our unique educational philosophy. We fully believe that these activities build character, provide endless stimulation and inspiration and remind every learner at our school of their own potential – while providing hours of structured fun.

On school trips and environmental club expeditions, Learners have opportunities to participate in adventure activities including kayaking, rock climbing, kloofing, bouldering, short expeditions and mountain biking.

Such activities offer learners a very unique opportunity to interact with the pristine natural environment in this largely unspoilt area of our country. Involvement in such adventure activities also gives youngsters the opportunity to challenge themselves and their abilities in a very healthy way and in some of the most beautiful settings imaginable.

The mountains of the Northern Drakensberg escarpment and the two major rivers in the area offer wonderful opportunities for adventure activities, not to mention the Kruger National Park and game reserves for which our area is so well known, literally on the schools doorstep.
