Learning Beyond the Classroom

W hilst traditional learning takes place primarily in the classroom and on campus, many of life’s useful lessons are learnt within the secure environs of our small, historic city – Makhanda (Grahamstown) . The compact layout of the town permits even young girls to develop a sense of independence in that they can walk to the near-by shopping mall; the world-renowned Rhodes University is on our doorstep allowing collaboration and academic support at the highest levels; the National Arts Festival provides opportunities for our girls to be exposed to drama, visual art, music and dance of international standards; and the Science Festival helps them to broaden their horizons, creating a real interest in all spheres of science.
