Grahamstown is surrounded by fascinating places such as the fossil rich Karoo, the beautiful forested mountains of Hogsback and Katberg, world-class game reserves and the unspoilt beaches and coastal forests of the Eastern Cape. Outdoor education is an extension of the classroom and all activities are designed to enrich all the facets of the normal classroom curriculum.
As part of the broader education programme at St Andrew’s Preparatory, each class will go on at least one Outdoor Education excursion per year. Activities range from 2-day to 4-day excursions, intensive learning and team building sessions where children are actively involved in learning and explore their full creative potential. They return happy and exhausted with many exciting stories to tell!
