Grade 7 RIFA Trip 2019

The highlight of their Junior School career is undoubtedly the Grade Sevens’ Rifa Conservation Trip. An educational camp nestled in the banks of the Zambezi River near Chirundu, Rifa offers a diversity of terrain and activities for the pupils to enjoy. From studying the ecology of the warm sulphur pools, canoeing the mighty Zambezi, marvelling at a vulture watch, learning about spoor and tracking, GPS reading and map work, knot making and target practice – the list is endless!

The children are put into 5 groups and enjoy 3 fun-filled rotational sessions a day – they are pleasantly exhausted around the campfire at night! Campfire songs, Bush Bingo, Wildlife Quiz and Team War Cries are evening activities that end off a wonderful day.

Grade 5 Trip to the Lowveld 2019

The Grade 5s left aboard a 65-seater bus last Friday; first stop was the taxidermist at Melfort, then all aboard again en route to Masvingo and a night spent at the fabulous Lodge on the Ancient City.

Saturday started early, with a packed breakfast in the Great Zimbabwe car park, with everyone on high alert because of the cheeky monkeys, before the children were shown around the ruins by Ananias, the knowledgeable and interesting guide.

The children enjoyed bargaining with the stone sculptors at the Shona village, then it was time to head down to the Lowveld to our camp, Hakamela, part of Malilangwe. We stayed there for four wonderful nights, enjoying our game drives, jaunts to study aquatic ecosystems and many other varied activities.
