Activities included a vulture watch, Impala dissection, map work and rivers, aquatic ecology, fish dissection, biltong making and target practice.
The day would start with a pre breakfast walk with worksheets being handed in and marked before the final debrief - our top pupils were Chido Madera, Madeleine Norton and Seamus Ratcliff.

Interact Club Visit to Ida weKwako Old Age Home 2019

Recently the Interact Club visited Ida weKwakwo Old Age Home to deliver new appliances for their kitchen.

As a Club, we decided to direct the majority of our raised funds to renovating the Ida weKwakwo kitchen. Money from the Valentine’s Day roses’ sales in February this year bought the Old Age Home a new refrigerator and a new electrical stove.

We presented the new appliances to the residents who were completely overwhelmed and literally beaming with delight! Some stood up and began to lead in song which everyone joined in. It was a happy and fulfilling afternoon; we left the Home with a very cheerful group of people.
