Day 1 started off with great excitement. We arrived at quite a warm campsite and we were treated to a swim pretty soon after arrival to cool off before starting our activities. The children were divided into 5 groups and started a rotation of activities.
The first one was the Leap of Faith. For some it was a challenge of heights for others it was a breeze to the top. They enjoyed the swing at the top. The next was wall climbing. There were awesome moments as the children scaled the 11m high wall. The Long Walk to Freedom tested some teamwork among the children. The raft building was a firm favourite as they got to be out in the water again.
Our evening commenced with a starter as the children made their own stokbrood followed by a wonderful supper of chicken, roast potatoes and salad. We certainly don’t go hungry here.
We ended the day with a night walk to see the beautiful stars away from the city lights. Take a look at our photos of the day…

With all the excitement we had SOME sleep last night and were rearing to go this morning. The children went on a hike this morning and learnt about snakes which was appealing to some but maybe not to others. This was accompanied by a little snake prank by a few boys which caused them to errupt with laugher when Mrs Raubie fell for the trick. It is a beautiful day and everyone, teachers included, are making good use of the cool Breede River water and working up their appetite for lunch. What better way to enjoy our friends and have fun? Mr Raven has been great entertainment as he has performed somersaults on the leap of faith. Now they are trying to persuade the other teachers to do the leap of faith!
