Spring Walk and Table Farm Trek

Our Junior Preppies (and a few of the Pre-Primary children) took a different route this year to our Table Farm Trekkers. They enjoyed a Spring Walk, on what has been our warmest Spring day so far! The weather is changing, the health crisis appears to be easing up in the world, and we are enjoying the sunshine!

The 15.4km covered by those of us who wandered successfully – some didn’t make it and a map-reading lesson may be required – from Table Farm back to Prep translated to about 17 300 steps if you’re 6’4” and have a stride of 89 cm. That’s a bunch of steps, and a lot more if you’re in Grade 4 on short legs. Table Farm Trek (TFT) isn’t just about the steps. Like so much at Prep, it’s about the experience, the camaraderie and the joy of being out in the beautiful (if a little dry) Eastern Cape bushveld. We are so fortunate to have access to the surrounding farmlands and game reserves and how grateful are we for the community support in our various ventures for the children.
