Necessary Nature Nurturing

The Prep Grade 7s recently spent just short of a week at the Amakhala Game Reserve, sleeping under the stars, learning to make fire by friction, learning to track animals, cook and to find useful tools in the bush. The boys had to take turns doing night duty, which involved keeping watch for an hour-and-a-half throughout the night to keep their teammates from any surprise visits by lion, leopard, elephant or buffalo that make their home in the reserve.

The experience is built into the Integrated Studies Programme module for the term and the boys certainly enjoyed the many challenges and insights gained in their time away.
