Culture

There is considerable and very valuable cultural exchange among students on an informal level but the College also provides structured cultural opportunities in the form of the Choir, Drama club, an annual play and an annual Culture Day. Entries in the various categories of the National Eisteddfod are encouraged and supported and our students have a pleasing record of success.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking are integral to the College’s concept of its mission. As well as including Business Studies and Accounting in the formal curriculum, the College encourages creative and innovative thinking in all areas of the curriculum.

Field Trips

An annual field trip is integrated into the curriculum for each class. The emphasis in the first year is on team building and environmental awareness. In the  second and third year students go to Johannesburg and Durban respectively with emphasis on cultural and historical awareness. In the fourth year the field trip focuses on leadership development, for the final year the emphasis is largely cultural – usually a trip to the Grahamstown Festival.

Our focus is on health-related fitness, enjoyment of physical activities, skill development, self-discipline, strengthened peer relationships and improved self-confidence.
