And so yet another camp must come to an end. For some it is good timing as they are ready for home comforts and their parents. For others, their batteries have not quite yet run out.

The fun and action has continued today. Although they were up EARLY due to excitement, they just keep going and going. There were personal challenges accomplished, new friendships made and new skills learnt. See what we got up to today.
85 super excited Grade 5’s arrived at High Africa today amped to get started with the activities from the word go. They have had a full and busy day and the buzz is yet to subside… Take a look at some of the snapshots from our first day at camp.
Our Grade 5 children were supposedly approached by the SABC to create and present a nature documentary for television on their soil creatures. They used this opportunity to present the information on their soil creature posters to the rest of the class in an interesting and creative way. Everyone remained fully engaged in what was being said throughout all of the presentations. They really loved hearing about all the different animals and had so much fun watching their friends pretend to be TV presenters.
After researching a soil creature of their choice, the children had to transcribe the information into their own words and then transfer it onto a poster. They worked in pairs and had to agree on their course of action for the task. The children learnt all about their creature’s appearance, habitat and diet. They also researched some interesting facts about their creature.
