Odyssey 2018 Groups Depart

Our Grade 10s embarked on their Odyssey journeys this week!  We wish all participants the most incredible adventure. As encouraged by Head of School, Jannie de Villiers, in his opening address to the pupils: “You are in for a treat! Although you will have to make do without many of the luxuries you are used to, the Odyssey offers you one luxury that most modern people have in short supply. This is time … You will have time to complete what you have to do every day – no need to rush if you start early. You will have time to explore your own inner landscape as much as you will have ample opportunity to experience the magic of nature with all your senses. You will have time to build relationships with friends and to share of yourself with them; to listen and to be heard. You will have time to test your individual resilience and to discover the immense power of teamwork. You will have time to lead but also to follow … your leader, the route, your common sense and your gut. Enjoy the precious time ahead and make the most of it.”
