The Grade 6 pupils went on their annual cycle in the Harkerville forest from 16 – 17 February this year. This outing serves as a grade-building exercise and also allows pupils to develop self-awareness through perseverance, endurance, problem-solving, decision making and exercise while they get to explore the vast and awe-inspiring natural beauty of the Garden Route National park. As always, the group was looked after very well at Harkerville Lodge by Siekie and his team.
All the pupils completed both cycle courses, with the 17 km Harkerville route on Friday and the 10km cycle to the Kranshoek viewpoint and back on Saturday, despite the many punctures and bike issues to sort out! Fortunately, the weather played along, and apart from being very tired and having sore muscles, the group returned home with great memories of a new adventure and renewed confidence in their own abilities to meet challenges and learn from them, while they remember to have fun as well.
