In a show devised by our company of actors, "Metamorphosis" is a collection of thoughts and feelings about the changes that we go through - as teenagers and young adults -  in this amazing time of political, gender and race change. "Metamorphosis" is our first step in rewriting our history, and making new endings to old fairy tales.

Outdoor Club Conquers the People's Trail

Posted by on in News

Our Outdoor Club conquered the People's Trail this last weekend. The hike started on Saturday morning at Constantia Nek where the hikers walked up Orange Kloof and Disa Gorge. They then spent the night on the mountain at The People's Hut.  The highlight was watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean from the top of Kasteelspoort.

On Sunday morning the club hiked up Maclear's Beacon (the highest point on Table Mountain which is 1086m above sea level) and then descended the mountain via Platteklip Gorge. The hikers thoroughly enjoyed this 2-day, 15km trail.

Thank you to the teachers who gave up their weekend to accompany the students.
