On Monday 14th and Thursday the 17th of May the Grade 3s went on an adventure they would never forget. They reached Cape Point, the place they had been eagerly anticipating, the place where famous explorers once roamed…

We met our lovely tour guide, Aunty Christa, at a meeting point where we were able to overlook the famous, Dias Beach. As we peered down, we spotted two stunning gemsbok grazing on a patch of grass.

Aunty Christa took us on a historical journey of Bartolomeu Dias and Vasco da Gama, and also explained the beautiful nature that surrounds and lives within the beautiful Cape Point Nature Reserve. The Grade 3s couldn’t wait to explore the rest of this historically rich land!

It was time for the “Groot Trek” up to the lighthouse. There Grade 3s learned about the historical lighthouse, built in 1859, which was non-effective due to the heavy mist, and hence the current and more prominent lighthouse that stands there today. We even stopped for some mindfulness breathing exercises, breathing in the cleanest air in the world!

After a much needed lunch and some play in the Faraway Tree, we explored Buffels Bay Beach, where we learned about cleaning our environment. Our little explorers were instructed to find one piece of plastic and one interesting natural piece from the beach.

The Grade 3s travelled back home, with new knowledge and a new found love for the wonderful place in which we live.
