Outdoor Education

Grahamstown and its environs, and indeed the Eastern Cape, offer an enriching context for our academic programme. We are always mindful of our social responsibility and the need to inculcate an
awareness of the role our pupils can play in caring for their environment. Whilst our outdoor education serves as an extension to our academic programme, it also makes a major contribution to physical and environmental education; it contributes to personal growth and social awareness, and develops skills for life. Qualities such as a sense of responsibility and a purpose in life are nurtured. There is also a great deal of intrinsic enjoyment and satisfaction to be experienced from participation in outdoor activities.
