The British School of Kuwait have just completed their 3rd trip to South Africa and I had the pleasure of going along too! The visit formed part of the school’s International Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and students undertook a 4 day trek in the Drakensberg to fulfil the expeditionary component of the award. In the past two years the school has rounded off the trip with a short safari in the iMfolozi game reserve. However, this year BSK opted to visit Eshowe in Zululand, where the student group focused on community and environmental work as part of the Residential component of the DofE scheme. This was both constructive and great fun, particularly interacting with enthusiastic children in local orphanages.
