A 12-day Experiential learning field trip to Zululand South Africa.
Recent studies have recognised the benefits of cross-curricular, out-of-the-classroom learning by using the environment as a tool to enrich the curriculum across subject areas. Academic fieldwork clearly enhances the teaching of science and geography, but other subjects such as history, art and design and citizenship can also be brought to life by high quality educational visits. Group activities, which may include adventurous activities and cultural immersion that teach students to deal with an element of risk can develop social skills and give self-confidence.
Nowhere are the conflicts that have shaped South Africa more concentrated and accessible than in KwaZulu Natal’s battlefields region.
From the arrival of the Voortrekkers in Natal in 1837 to establishment of the Union of South Africa in 1910 numerous bloody conflicts have played out on the landscape of KwaZulu Natal.
