Given our location, we are able to offer students an in-depth interaction and exploration of their natural surroundings. Included in this is the unique opportunity for students to visit an old copper mine as well as the beautiful Mangeni Falls.

These activities provide students with the chance to delve deeper into a range of interesting ecological-related studies, as well as a bit of fun in the form of a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt.

Social Awareness
