Doing it down in Darling

| August 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

Darling College is located in Darling on the west coast of South Africa, an area well-known for its natural beauty; particularly the wild flowers.

Says principal Marius Jerling: “Earlier this year, we took our grades 4—7 students on a three-day camp to Buffelsfontein Game Reserve.

“We started every morning with a game drive and watched the sun rise while spotting giraffe, eland, kudu, zebra, springbok, wildebeest and other small game. We got close and almost personal with white rhino.

“In the mornings, students enjoyed a tug-of-war, a bit of jukskei (a first for most!), swimming and fishing. In the afternoons, there were interesting lectures on reptiles, insects and mammals. The students also had the opportunity to handle snakes and spiders and other ‘creepycrawlies’. An introduction to first aid gave us all insight on what to do in an emergency.

“Sitting around the fire and braaiing your own stokbrood was the perfect ending to every day.”
