Every now and then we spontaneously decide to go on school outings.
Generally, these outings will take place in the mornings and all students, teachers and staff are invited to join in – but is is not mandatory for students and this does not affect their class attendance.
Our outings will be dependent on the time of year, weather and day of the week. As Fridays are usually morning classes only, and afternoons are spent by teachers and staff in meetings and CPDs (Continuous Professional Development), outings will be shorter, whereas mid week outings can include a full a lunch and arrival back at school in the mid afternoon.
Some past outings have included a trip to Simon’s Town (read more about that trip here) with a visit to the Simon’s Town museum, as well as a walk on Boulders Beach with the infamous African penguins, and a wonderful lazy lunch of Fish and Chips at the Kalk Bay Harbour. More recently we decided to take a bus to the Noon Gun and learn all about the daily midday blast that reminds all Cape Townians and vistors that it is 12 o’clock midday exactly! The we decided to take it easy, lay out some blankets, snack on a picnic and just soak in the views and the time together as a large school group.
