South Africa – helping create a pathway onto prosperity!

This year’s South Africa trip expedition saw another group of Sixth Form students head off for a combined sightseeing and charity work trip in August, after a fantastically successful year of fundraising in which they raised £30,000.

For the first few days the students enjoyed the best of Cape Town and surrounding places of interest, visiting Table Mountain, Robben Island, Cape Point and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, to name just a few.  They then moved on to spend time at the Goedgedacht Farm, just outside the city, where, for the 10th year in a row, KES pupils assisted with the charity and its ‘Pathway onto Prosperity‘ programme with local children, taking them on trips, helping out at homework clubs, visiting townships and participating in lots of singing, dancing, face-painting and hair braiding!

To round off an unforgettable stay, the group enjoyed a two day safari, managing to see a whole host of wild animals in their natural environment including elephants, cheetahs, antelope, giraffes and rhino.
