Zerilda Park Primary School annual
camp at the
15 - 17 September 2006
Cherry reports "47 learners from the Zandvlei Nature Reserve EE Club, the Gardening Group, and the Soul Buddies were taken to the Centre on Friday afternoon. The school had fund raised the money for the camp and we 'found sponsorship' for the transport costs and 'extras' for the children. Maggie Sauls together with 2 school staff members and I were there to look after the children.
Getting to know each other on Friday afternoon after arriving.
Despite unpredictable weather we had a wonderful time and for the children I can honestly say it would have been a life changing
On Saturday a highlight day was when we went to Rondevlei and Zeekoevlei to see what we could learn there.
A lecture in the theatre followed by the live reptile show, a walk back to ZEEP where they went paddling on the Dragon Boats and completed a ‘trail while blind folded’ then a walk back to camp. In the afternoon they completed an obstacle course and then prepared ‘concerts’ which they presented after dinner".
"On Sunday – a walk in the Reserve to do some bird spotting, then time for reflection after a scrumptious lunch before we had to go home".
