  • Excursions


    It is a school policy to organise class excursions within Maputo, further a field in Mozambique and to other countries during the year. This is part of the British National Curriculum and is seen as not only educational in its narrow sense, but also as an enriching, confidence building exercise. 

    In the past, there have been Middle School trips to the Drakensberg Mountains, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Pequenos Lebombos, while the Upper School have visited Zimbabwe, the Drakensberg, Kruger National Park, Morrungulo and Inhaca Island.
