Over the long weekend, the grade 10 Tourism class went on a tour to Thangami Spa. Although an enjoyable outing, it was not to be all fun and games. The students had to learn about the different aspects and sectors of tourism in order to do a project based on the tour itself. The best way to learn these things? Experience it yourself of course!
Die leerders het in die Bird’s Nest tuisgegaan en het verskeie aktiwiteite aangedurf, insluitend ziplining en abseiling. ‘n Voetslaanpad is ook aangepak met die eindbestemming die beeldskone Swart Umfolozi-rivier.
The learners experienced the cold mud pool after a brief tug of war, but in the end, everyone had a chance to get their fill of mineral-rich mud. The natural hot springs drew the learners during their downtime which lead to several games of volleyball.
Die leerders het hard gewerk en hard gespeel en het beslis onvergeetlike ervarings opgedoen.
Dankie aan Mnr van Rhyn, hulle Toerisme-onderwyser, en Mej Kleynhans en Mej Myburgh vir hulle bydrae en die versorging van die kinders sodat almal in een stuk terug by hul huise en families kon uitkom.
