South Africa 2017

In August a group of Sixth Formers, accompanied by Mr Miller and Mrs Wood, travelled to South Africa for the trip of a lifetime.  Beginning their journey in Cape Town they visited the likes of Robben Island and Table Top Mountain before travelling to the Goedgedacht Farm outside of the city.  Here they spent a week working on the farm and helping in the POP (Pathway out of Poverty) centres in the surrounding countryside, meeting with the local teenagers, children and babies who attend these centres, helping with homework, playing games, face painting, singing dancing and taking part in a whole host of other activities aimed at improving the lives of these local children.  Their trip was rounded off with a visit to a game park where they were fortunate enough to see lions, elephants, giraffes and many other animals close up and within their natural habitat.
